    Hi guys, during same late stage testing of my map I discovered that Control Points cannot be blocked while the opposing team is trying to cap them.

    For example: If four Red players are trying to cap a point that Blu controls, and a Blu player stands in the middle on the point, Red still gains and can cap.

    Any suggestions? Ideas? Is there a flag I'm missing? I've been scratching my head about this for hours.

    Thanks!

    This happens on GravelPit A, if you've already captured B. Wierd innit

    I wasn't aware of that bug w/ Gravelpit. I've been defending A after a B cap plenty of times. Something to do with the index of points maybe? See if you can copy/paste the last stage caps of Dustbowl, I know those can be blocked.

    I just tested Gravelpit in hopes of figuring out how to replicate the problem on another map. All points can be blocked regardless of which point is capped first.

    <sigh>

    Yeah my only suggestion would be to look closely for any differences between the points in a decompiled valve map and yours. If there are none trying copying the valve points and see if that fixes it.

    I have no idea what variable could be messed up for this to happen tho.
