Question[edit source]

I want to know. Is this fan-thought of, or was this information actually true and stated by Notch. Gordenfreechmen 20:40, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Yes it's true, it was stated in a blog post --Aza1810 13:52, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
A link to the reference should be made. For someone like me that doens't believe everything I read, it remains as fan wishful thinking if no reference is linked. Skaruts 22:42, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Does this warrant its own page?[edit source]

It's been pretty much a year and a bit since this game mode was last touched upon. Perhaps it and the others can me merged into a page such as Planned features? --Gnu32 02:31, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Agreed; we could divide it into different sections, one for each feature. --Yours truly, franx12 18:05, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

I think it should stay so it can remind Notch to see if he can create it Benawesome150

I thing we should REMIND notch, or ask him about it. THEAVENGER119

Team Fortress[edit source]

You realise Team Fortress was just a simple Mod to Half Life, and that the only version of Team Fortress to have game modes AT ALL was TF2. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by PixelScientist (Talk|Contribs) 02:40, 6 August 2011‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Well who knows...we'll see eventually. - Asterick6 22:31, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Speculations[edit source]

Seems to be a lot of speculation about this game mode, rather than facts. --Throex 16:43, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Increasing page usage[edit source]

Should we add a suggestions part to help increase views and posts on the page? like someone suggests "make a zipline" to increase traveling, then someone increases with grappling hooks, then swinging vines, ect. ect., ect., no, i am not calling this idea my own, i am merely suggesting it, and cannot tell who first thought it up. 12:20, 5 February 2012 (UTC) (just refer to me as rhou)

Hm, Okay, That's sounds like a good idea. :) Spencer10APSC 12:37, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Different colored armor[edit source]

I would like to see the Teams mod in it. in it, with the Different Wool Armor (like Green, Yellow, Blue, Red, E.T.C.) So you know who is with who! :D Spencer10APSC 12:44, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Update! As of 12w34a, you can now dye armor! I wounder if they listened to me. ;) Spencer10APSC 18:13, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Well,What if we wanted Iron Armor? 02:41, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Where did this come from?[edit source]

Hey, umm... I found this: "This game mode has been thought to receive horrible reviews." sitting at the bottom of the page, but I do not know what it means or if it is considered spam, vandalizim or whatnot. Can you guys please help me out? 21:25, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Yea, that kind of statement shouldn't be there. --Kanegasi C 21:31, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. :) 21:20, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Forgot to ask first. :/[edit source]

Would any of you consider helping with an article about suggesting ideas to mojang, or is that just a bad idea in general? I have what I tried to add, forgot I should ask first.

This is merely an area to put suggestions for Jeb or whoever might want to work on capture the flag in the future. All suggestions are welcome, put them in here yourself. With the addition of command blocks, and colored leather armor, it is easy to have a basic combat arena set up. Just have it so people respawn with a set inventory, maybe a few different classes, and with enchantments "Tag" the other person by brutally bashing in their skull with a sharp stick. However, a "flag" would require two different blocks that are: Easily broken by hand Have a unique interaction with redstone, or something that can produce a redstone pulse, and Can be replaced easily Essentially, what this calls for is colored TNT. TNT can be broken by hand instantly, has a unique reaction of exploding violently when exposed to redstone, which can be used to destroy a redstone torch powering other redstone. However, then you could take your own flag and throw it into your base's capture point. There is no easy way to check if the TNT block has been taken without risking it exploding or preventing it from being replaced. Therefore, this "colored TNT" block would need to have 2-4 unique variants. What might happen is TNT with a set requirement of pulse strength for detonation, without going over. More suggestions?

Sorry, thought I did. Rhou17 21:15, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

About time we got rid of this?[edit source]

This is clearly no longer going to happen. This entire page is based off the brainstorming of Notch a long time ago and is clearly not going to be a separate game-mode. As mentioned in the article, a majority of the features required for users to build this game mode themselves have been implemented and as such it is very likely now left up to the community to create these kinds of game modes. What would it require to banish this article to the archives? -- 21:44, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

I 2nd this statement98.247.91.99 15:28, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

I agree. There are capture the flag maps out there if you want to play it, and plenty of servers have them as plugins. Also, it seems like something small to have a whole new gamemode for it. Dragon29 29 (talk) 17:11, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

Agreed, the whole idea seems just thrown down the trashcan just like the red dragon. This is clearly not going to be added so it's pretty much pointless to have it on the main page. AlexJackCarlson (talk) 16:20, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
Recent updates basically made this possible as a minigame, so a capture the flag gamemode would be pointless by now aswell. And no new developmental for this as a gamemode have come recently. So I agree. --KnightMiner (talk|contribs) 17:20, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
All right, it's been removed from the main page! AlexJackCarlson (talk) 03:11, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Banners[edit source]

The page mentions that Jeb was planning to add flags. Are these flags Banners? (snapshot 14w30a) 17:41, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
