Please note that Variant 1 and 2, are the variants with changed positions only.

Player in Blue team on a top slot will be forced to be the player-hostage, if slot is not seized, dummy bot will take place of a hostage. RED's task is to approach and extract him/her to a designated extraction point. The teams have heroes divided into ATK and DEF fitting heroes. The game ends whenever the hostage is killed, ATK/DEF is eliminated or when ATK/DEF manages to extract/protect the hostage.

If player in top slot in Team 1 doesn't want to be the player-hostage, may ask host to move player to the lower slots, which Dummy Bot will take the slot of the hostage (Top Slot - Team 1) if is not seized.

AVAILABLE MAP POOL FOR HOSTAGE EXTRACTION: ROUTE 66, HAVANA, RIALTO, DORADO, KING'S ROW, HANAMURA, PARIS AND GIBLARTAR.

Featuring: Some of the heroes fast heal ups for wounded hostage, when close. Find them out yourselves. ;)

Elimination-like mechanic - once you're eliminated, you're eliminated for the whole round/game.

RHI - Reversed Hostage Injury Rule: Damage dealt to Hostage will be returned to attacking player. Host can manually turn on or off this rule, if it's considered that player's keeps on killing the hostage, instead of escorting.

INTERACT BUTTON - SECURE/RECOVER THE HOSTAGE

If you encountered an issue, post it in the comments in GAMEMODE TRAILER video, and I'll try to fix it. Your opinion matters and helps this gamemode grow.

Known issues: 1.Q Whenever I play solo with this gamemode, it ends my game instantly, after the initial countdown.

1.A Try adding a bot (to slot 1 in team 2, if you are defender in slot from 2 to 6. Or vice versa, bot to slot from 2 to 6 if you are attacker in slot from 1 to 5) and try again. There's also probability, that you've seized slot 1 in team 1, which is slot for a Player/Dummy-Hostage (2.Q).

2.Q I can't move and I could select only Soldier-76 and Tracer, while I was in Blue Team (1).

2.A You've probably seized the slot 1 in team 1. Exit to lobby, and switch to slot from 2 to 6 (if you are defender). Slot 1 in Team 1 is reserved for Hostage-player. If not seized, fully scripted dummy hostage will be created.

3.Q I've started the game. I am in Team 2, but after the initial countdown nothing happens and dummy hostage is not present.

3.A Some workshop scripts work, when player is present in a certain team. In your example, I presume, you're playing solo in attackers team, and you haven't added a bot. Add the bot to one of the slots from 2 to 6 in team 1.

Here's an unpublic post with a images of resolving the issue. https://imgur.com/a/QV09woF

More known issues will be added once reported.

Misc issues: Why hostage extraction time has been extended on Assault maps?

Read the changelog 1.0.1. Because assault maps are a bit shorter than escort(/assault) maps, extraction time has been extended from 5 to 10, to balance between Defender reaching for hostage around extraction area, and securement time.

Changelog

13 days ago 1.0.2

Gamemode update changes:

Now added ability to release the escorted hostage at anytime. Hold down Interaction button for a while to release the hostage.

Movements update - Escorting player and the hostage: Hostage will now crouch if the escorting player does it, and won't be able to jump, while escorting.

Gamemode update changes:

After the ATK team manages to secure the dummy hostage, the rescued hostage will be shown with the victorious Attackers.

Added Hanamura, Paris and Giblartar to the Hostage Extraction map pool, and extended position extraction time on Assault only maps to 10 seconds.

Because Hanamura and Paris are Assault only maps, distance between attackers and hostage positions may be a bit shorter than on Assault/Escort maps, which is resulted with 10 second position extraction time instead of 5, like on Assault/Escort maps.
