    Sampler Matches Updated - 1 Flag CTF

    The next Sampler matches are now online, and are running 1-Flag CTF on Courtyard.

    1-Flag CTF returns from the original Quake 3 expansion pack Team Arena. A neutral flag spawns in the middle of the arena. Teams must pick up the flag, and deliver it to the enemy's flag stand. Two wrinkles are added compared to normal Capture The Flag: the ability to throw the flag a long distance instead of dropping it in front of you (look for the prompt below the flag icon on the HUD when you're holding the flag!) and the ability for flags to be boosted by jump pads and teleported when touching portals.

    As always, the Sampler servers are available in limited capacity, so look for matches named "1-Flag CTF Sampler" and enjoy!

    I wonder, why Sampler matches never run on UKR Kiev servers?

    I didnt find the flag throw very powerful, whats the point of it if it only goes 2 meters? i have seen it in other mods be way more powerful you should boost it up to make it worth throwing! if you could do that it would get more play I would hope!

    Or maybe they should try to make it the same as any other mod... Lol, that 'long distance throw' isn't very long..

    i like it on courtyard if teams are balanced it actually ends up quite fun for a few quick games.

    perhaps the flag throw has more use on bigger maps such as overlord.

    You throw the flag with a bit too little speed, then it bounces like CRAZY, but each touch to the ground slows it down tremendously. I think there should be a bit more speed to the throw, much less bouncing but to offset that, less ground friction.

    Here's a sure cap with a really nice pass from Bozz (thank you, never expected such things on a public server!) that failed because the flag somehow dodged me and then bounced above my head :)
