In another game they have factions that compete for territories. You can claim territories for your faction and then need to hold the territory for a set amount of time.

 

Captuing the flag is a similar thing.

 

In EL this could be like this:

 

The forts in KF (for example) could have a flagpole, and you could then go to an NPC and buy a flag. Go to the fort and raise the flag. This will generate a message, so that other players will know what happen. And they can go there to stop the 'flagging', and then try to raise their own flag. The one who raise the flag successfully will have his name logged in a book or something, so that the 'records' can be seen by others.

 

Examples of records:

Raised flag most times: <player>

Longest flag time: <player>

 

 

There is naturally room for development, but I think it might be a start :)

yeah would be fun :)

I agree that most of the fun in PKing was gone after introducing the new stone :/

Now nobody that can afford a stone goes to a PK map without it. And the ones that cant afford a stone have crappy equipment anyway :)

The discussion here is not about that stone or is it? :-p

 

Well, I like the idea which Derin suggested very much.

 

However, it might become annoying to get messages all over the time in case that players keep raising flags.

I was just thinking about the multichannel system which was still planned afaik. Why not make a channel in which these messages will be sent then - so everyone who is interested in contests will be on that channel.

I suggest to design an extra map for that, in fact we'd even need somekind of a party mode. CTF is much more fun in teams, otherwise it's just plain deathmatch or king of the hill.
