I think speed, freestyle, trench, adjacent would be the least enjoyable game settings I can imagine. Throw that on Hive and I think I would be driven to deadbeating. Except I don't deadbeat, so I would play that awful, miserable game.
These settings are great on conquest maps. It's the Hive part that's horrible for me! To be honest, normal trench on sequential 1v1 is the most frustrating. If you're dropped even close to a bonus, you can take it without the possibility that the opponent can take it back for the first couple turns, so usually the rest of the game. Trench magnifies the luckiness of drops in sequential.
