General Info

In Capture the Flag players' goal is to steal the other team's flag and return it to their own base. There are 2 teams, Red and Blue. Players get to choose their team in the parkour area but if the teams are uneven, the game will balance them automatically.

Players spawn with a stone sword, Infinity I and Power I bow and 1 arrow. There is a time limit of 900 seconds and if no one has captured the other team's flag when the game ends, the team with most kills wins.

The update of 10th August 2017 changed the waiting Lobby to a new one. The waiting Lobby was seen as too small, and it was quickly changed to a bigger one. The update also added a section to the scoreboard displaying how many kills each team has. Monthly leaderboards were also added, as part of the bigger Minigame revamp. In 12th August 2017 5 new maps were added and the map Land of Bones was changed a bit.

In 14th August 2017 map voting was added to Capture the Flag.
