Hey everyone, Overwatch’s Lunar New Year 2020 is here. This year we’re celebrating the Year of the Rat. With it, the competitive Capture the Flag season has started. Find out everything you need to know about it below!
When Does Capture The Flag Season 3 End?
CTF Season 3 ends on February 7th, 2020 with the Lunar New Year event.
How Does Capture The Flag Work in Overwatch?
The Capture the Flag games consist of 6 players per team with a time limit of 5 minutes per game. You have only two objectives, capture the enemy flag and bring it to your base, and defend your flag.
While carrying the flag, many heroes’ abilities will cause you to drop the flag, such as Ashe’s Coach Gun, Brigitte’s Shield Bash
, Hanzo’s Lunge
and so on… Essentially all abilities that help you move faster or make yourself invulnerable.
In order to capture the flag, you must stand on the flag pedestal and it will capture instantly. If you die, the flag gets dropped on the ground and all players from both teams can capture it instantly by standing on top of it.
If the team whose flag was taken away captures it, it’s returned back to the base instantly. If the 5-minute timer expires while somebody is carrying a flag, overtime starts and the match ends when the flag is dropped.
In order to win, you must capture 3 flags, or have more captures than the enemy when the timer expires. If there’s a draw, sudden death round happens with flags being moved closer to the map’s center, the timer is disabled and the first capture decides the winner.
