The Thailandmap, Kaplan noted, is the first map that the Overwatch development team created specifically for Capture the Flag. Kaplan explains that if time runs out and the two teams are tied, both teams' flags become moved closer to the center of the map, shortening the distance needed to score. We know historically every time we've had draws in Overwatch, there has been discontent in the player base and we want to get rid of draws. This year it's the Year of the Dog, and it sees the return of the Capture the Flag mode with a few twists. "For example, Winston's leap will [make you] drop the flag". However, players were frustrated by the lack of ability balancing in the matches, flag camping, and how likely it was for a match to end in a draw.
Blizzard is also sprucing up the the mode's rules and mechanics. Kaplan was very honest about the fact that some of these skins were made for heroes that players do not often use, and it is safe to assume that these skins might entice others to use these characters more. First off, there's no more draws.
Along with the changes to the mode, an entirely new map is also coming.
According to Kaplan, the Overwatch team has been paying attention to feedback from fans, and has tweaked the rules of Capture the Flag accordingly.
Jeff Kaplan addresses the millions of players in the Developer Update. It has been specifically created to incorporate a "capture the flag" mode. Players would have to stand on the flag for three seconds before they would be able to obtain it. In addition, do you like the sound of capture the flag?
What's more, there'll be no delay on picking up the flag. Apparently these changes have resulted in more action-packed matches when tested, so we look forward to seeing them in action. Gamers were able to enjoy the game in the Arcade mode.
Capture the Flag was introduced in last year's Lunar New Year event and took place on Lijiang Tower. You can check out the latest developer updatevideo below. Like other Overwatch events, all items from the last iteration will be available again, as well as the new additions.
From the thumbnail of the video, it appears that Widowmaker will be in line to receive a skin as well. A new highlight reel for one hero is apparently another highlight of the cosmetics being added.
