Hi guys,

I tend to play a lot of flag matches.

At the top of the screen it shows whether the flag is where its supposed to be, or has been captured.

As far as I'm aware it does not show if it is still somewhere on the map, uncollected by either team.

Scenario:

You win the flag and are taking it back to base, when, you are killed.

The flag sticks in the ground at that spot.

But it's not picked up by either team, so it just sits there, it might not be visible if in a secluded area.

 

Could the flag icon flash to indicate it's 'missing'?, that way the whole team is aware!

 

Also,

If the flag carrier is killed, and the flag recovered back to base, the flag icon at the top of the screen highlights slightly (but very briefly!).

Can this indication be made to last longer? As if you are not looking for it, you can easily miss it.

 

Many thanks, Rob

If the friendly team's flag is out of place, it will display red.

You are correct Mr blue,it is red, until the tank carrying it is killed.
Then the highlighted flag returns to its normal state, indicating it is safe back at base.
If it is not collected though, it stays where it is, but is not highlighted at the top of the screen.
Any team members that don't have a visual on it are not aware its 'missing'.

I thought I was having a senior moment, but have checked this in offline mode.
It's not Such an issue on smaller maps.
Please, please, don't say I'm mistaken. It would only prove I'm losing my mind.

If the flag is dropped an remains in the field, the flag indicator will remain red until it is collected, then it will return to blue, if it is being carried, the indicator will have a red highlighted outline along with a red flag.

It's official, I have lost my mind!

However,

I still think it should flash to make it more of an attention grabber.

You haven't lost your mind, this is a small detail that many don't notice.

 

Therefore, I suggest re-implementation of the flag message:

      "​Your flag has been returned"

​      "​Enemy captured your flag"

     ​ "​Your team has delivered enemy flag"

     ​ "​Your team captured enemy flag"

 

​Kind regards,

Dave
