    Capturing the Colors

    I made sure to go through each individual thread to try and find the answer to this, so i apologize if the question has indeed already been answered.

    Will there be a chance further on in the development of the game, were we will be capable of capturing an enemy units colors?

    I understand that this is not a priority, but the question has been on my mind for quite some time.

    Thank you,

    Hope when that option does get in the game every captured flag will be placed in our company tool as a achievement, not for points just for glory.

    as far as i understood it, the colors will act as a spawn-point...therefore it would make sense that the colors can be captured rather than being "destroyed"

    That's the first I've heard that, but makes perfect sense. Maybe make it where you have to return it to a certain area and the enemy recive some sort of time/ticket penalty. If that's how the system is gonna work of course.

    From what i understand, in the earlier reports on Flags and their uses, it was said they could be used as a mobile spawn point of sorts, so that if you died you wouldn't wouldn't need to respawn on the other side of the map and would be able to regroup with your unit. As for it's purpose currently, well...it looks nice.

    It's also possible i'm wrong and nobody from the dev team or mod team or wherever said this, but i read about it back in June-July, when the whole craze over captains and Majors getting the Tech-alpha was a thing

    Interesting stuff would like to know more on this if it does become a thing. A spawn point make sense if the colors is under your control and in the hands of your flag bearer. What if it is dropped?, Can it be picked up by another?, What if it is captured? I would expect in the case of being captured you lose that spawn point ability and the side that does get the flag it would be nice at end of match stats show how many flags captured if only for bragging rights.

    This is from way back. But indeed your last few questions are indeed interesting! I would love us to capture a flag and have that as bragging rights in our tool.
