    I didn't understand it. I just successfully dragged the enemy red flag into my green area, but nothing happened. How to capture the flag?

    I think your own flag has to be in your green area as the same time as well.

    Played a few rounds today. Overall the new game mode we wanted. Battles are very chaotic for a strategy match though. Turns into a slug fest. Maybe for these events, the call out buttons should be updated. I would want player x. defend or player y capture the flag. Most awesome would be three buttons on the bottom where I could say what I am doing. Capture, Protect, or Defend. Protect and Defend being different because defend would be guarding your base, and protect would be chasing the enemy who has your flag. Some way to get more sanity in this. Color code the buttons (red, yellow, green) and the ship icon will be that color on top so I can see at a glance where I need to be to support my team best. Maybe have something automatic where it the boat's proximity to the zone is colorized? Like if I am closer to my base, my icon is green. If I am closer to my enemy, its red. I am playing with 4 players that we cannot speak to live, and need to find out if they are hanging back or going on offense etc. Maybe people will start to figure it out on their own. Time will tell.

    My biggest gripe is the way things are scored. Can we drop the whole damage focal thing? Go to a point system for all events and even regular matches. 1 damage = 1 point but other in game things can add points. 10k points for capturing the flag for example, or 10k for taking yours back from the enemy for starters. I should get 5k points for being in a certain radius of the capturer because I escorted his ass with my tesla shields the whole way. In cap or kill, give me +200 for every 2 seconds im in the capture zone or something. I like the coins handed out by contribution but its not all about damage. These points can also spill into regular mode for more balanced star distribution.

    Having now spent a little time in the event, I can happily say I am well impressed. With the exception of the 3v3 TDM where you could just spam your items, this is the most fun event and I certainly think from a fixer perspective it's a lot friendlier than TDM. I actually feel like I'm making a valid contribution that's not just healing.

    The downside is the compounded respawn time. As the flag bearer (in particular) you're public enemy number 1 with a high probablility of being killed. This to me is akin to penalising the player for doing what the match is designed to do. That said I imagine this is so the match can progress opposed to stalling by a mid field brawl to kill the flag bearers.

    What I would like to see tracked along with the capture count is flag returns as this is just as important as capturing the flags.

    I very much expect actual captures to contribute to your coins, but can I ask whether flag returns also count?

    Games last at least 5mins, max 15 coins per event battle should be better

    I have to say worst event so far. It almost always boils down to an enforcer with shields taking the flag for the capture. Games take too long so grinding out 900 coins is nearly impossible.

    I read that right? The effort we do in events ( like 450/900 ) will be taken to next event??

    Auto pilot? COOL! Maybe in the future players that disconnect during a match can be controlled by AI to at least not let them be sitting duck.

    Hi!

    The effort in the progress bar does not carry over, only unused coins. Lets say you are 450/900 in end of event, next event progress will be 0/900.
    But coins you will not use to buy chests do carry over :)

    Maybe Player's think it's a Mine-Box Trap again so they pass it by without coming in it's range

    This event is so unbalanced in matching and coin rewards!! This example is super frequent. I did more damage and capped same but speeder gets 10 coins and I get nine! Not to mention the defenders of flag and returners get worst coin return no one wants to defended due to this! https://replay.battlebay.net/TJJPNLTB#WXVMLXZY

    When I play only speeders capture, with very few enforcers.
    The game is way too long though, they should just make win on 2 captures

    What gets me about this event is that for a loss I get 2-3 coins but for a draw I get.... 2-3 coins.

    Surely if you draw you should get more coins than for a loss
