Why was it removed?
Cause it wasn't fun to play against and lead to situations where players were encouraged to play in a way which wasn't hugely beneficial to their team
because an item that changes the rules of the map is almost mandatory, and their putting **** stats on it didn't change that fact, only made it a noob trap.
the offical reason givern when it was removed was that 2 players with it could quickly capture points before the other team could react.
