Thinking about Destiny2 'Survival' as another Competitive mode, what's your opinion?

Ok, we know that besides of Countdown, Bungie seems like to be working on another Competitive Crucible mode -- Survival. I have searched for some comments, and I know there are someones like this mode, but I just have a feeling that this PvP mode lacks innovative and is boring, compared to Countdown. As the IGN video shown([url][/url]), It is a deathmatch that a team gets eight lives. If someone dies then one life is cost, and the teammate revival is not available. When both teams are out of life, the teammates are holding together, avoiding showing themselves, getting close to other. So, it seems like old TOO wine in a new bottle. After an impressing beta Countdown experience with a lot of team-working and brain-storming, the 'Survival' makes me a bit disappointed. In Survival, it seems like the strategy is just 'badass weapons, teammates with excellent skill and the patience of crouching for a long time. I think it may be even more unpleasing than the old Clash and Skirmish. Well, certainly, winning matches is important -- but the 'exciting' experience is the crucial key to attract players to PvP. And I think to make the room to players to think about many possible tactics, in mealtimes, to restrict players from only using one tactic to win a match, is crucial to make a PvP mode more exciting and appealing to players. If countdown seems likely an improvement to a 'more amusing and compective PvP experience', the Survival appears to degenerate that experience. I hope the Competitive mode is selectable -- we can select Countdown or Survival as an individual mode (just like we choose Clash, Rift, Control to play in Destiny 1). Or we are playing Survival for the new Trial (of the nine), but Countdown can count as another 'qualifying' mode for another kind of rewards, then it seems acceptable. Just not that we are going to play either Countdown or Survival randomly in a single 'Competitive mode' (or even combine them in the new Trial) without any room of choice. Then the Competitive playing in Destiny 2 will feel awful. Someones that prefer Survival than Countdown mode, they may have the same feeling when leaving them without choice. Anyway, any opinion about the Survival mode is welcome, and I would like to know the reason you like / don't like it. (Oh, one more selfish wish: any possibility of Rift returning in D2? I think it's the most interesting PvP mode in D1.......)
