Q: What are the game modes?
A: There are four game modes:
1. Deathmatch (DM) – free for all matches. In this mode you are battling against all other players. The goal is to get more kills than the others.
2. Team Deathmatch (TDM) – a team vs team match. The primary objective of this game mode is to kill as many players of the opposing team as possible and have more kills as a team than the opposing team at the end of the battle.
3. Capture the Flag (CTF) – the name speaks for itself. The objective is to capture the enemy flag and carry it out from the enemy territory to the your base.
4. Control Point (CP) - a team vs team match. Every team has to capture as many points as possible and get the highest score (each point gives to the team 1 point every 10 seconds).
Brief rules of Capture the Flag (CTF).
1. This is a team battle. Each team has a base with a flag in a specific location.
2. There can be only one flag per team, red and blue for respective teams.
3. The primary objective for both teams is to bring the enemy flag to their own base while defending their own flag. The enemy flag can only be captured if your flag remains on its spot.
4. If the player carrying the flag is dead, the flag is dropped and it remains at the spot where flag carrier was killed.
5. If the flag is picked by one of the members of the team the flag belongs to, the flag instantly returns to the “Flag spot” at the base.
6. If the player carrying the flag of the opposing team is dead, their teammate can pick the flag and continue carrying it. If the flag is not picked up after 30 seconds it automatically returns to the "Flag spot" at the base.
7. It is possible to drop the flag of the opposing team deliberately by pressing the “F” key. The flag will be at the location where the “F” key was pressed. Note that, for five seconds after the flag is dropped, the player that dropped the flag cannot pick it up again.
8. For each flag captured (given the team’s own flag is on its spot) the team is awarded with a team point. The team with the most flags captured at the end of the battle wins.
