    Badlands implementation of the KOTH hold the flag game mode.

    The blue team must take and hold the flag until the timer runs out.

    The red team must try and get them to drop it and have it return before the timer runs out.

    Teams are switched at the end of the round.

    To Do:

    Once the mode is working the way it should make a new original map that uses it.

    Check out koth_aurora - there's a similar mode where one team must hold the flag for 3 minutes until their clock counts down to 0:00. Is there an upper limit that a team must hold? For example, 5 minutes or something, otherwise I can imagine one team holding the flag for 30:00, etc. If both team reach the limit its a draw. At least that might help prevent the gameplay becoming a stalemate.

    Sounds like an interesting idea, I look forward to playing it on gameday then I'll post my feedback on what I think of the gamemode - obviously I can't really comment on map seeing as our lords and masters created it!

    This really isnt a new game mode its refered to as keep away. Similar to Koth, but with a flag. I made a map with this game mode bout 4 months ago.

    It sounds like it has been done at least twice before. I updated my
    game description to reflect that. In a few day I will change my filename
    and prefix to Koth? for consistency with the community.

    This sounds like an interesting idea but isn't this almost like Ktf? (King of the Flag) just one team is holding the flag. It may be interesting but it may be better to make it KTF. Just an opinion. Nice to see a new idea pop up.
