I would've easily put the multiplayer above mw2 if the maps weren't so terribly bad and small - I wanted to like it so much but the maps just sucked the fun out of it. I ended up trading it for BF3 after a couple months because of how annoyed I was with it

Koth is different though because the win condition is barely abstracted from the gameplay - to win, you need to control the point. Time-based domination puts another layer on top of that, where capping/losing a point doesn't have any direct effect on the game or the win condit...

Speedrunning has always been about completing the game as quickly as possible at its core, the difference time makes is how long people have been routing and glitch-hunting for. I can agree that faster is not necessarily always more entertaining, but speed>entertainment.
