Capture the Flag (CTF) - Game Basics - Tanki Online - Tankipedia

CTF (short for Capture the Flag) is the most popular game mode in Tanki Online. In opposed to DM, in CTF mode you'll get points for useful behavior:

  • First of all you get points for killing enemy tanks. You'll get 10 points for killing an enemy tank of equal rating. The more difference between ratings you and your enemy have, the more (or less) points you get (from 1 to 20 points). Of course it's always more profitable to kill tanks with better rating. Generally the higher rank your enemy has, the more points you get. Though it's not always true.
  • Second, you get points for delivering enemy flag. The amount of point you get depends on your enemy team - the stronger it is (the more rating each of them have), the more points you get. It is said that for scoring enemy flag in Tanki Online CTF the player gets as much points as for killing the whole enemy team, but that seams not to be true. All team members who took part in carrying enemy flag to your base will score some points. Though the lion's share goes to the tanker who scored a flag.
  • Third, you get points for killing enemy caper (the tanker who's carrying the flag). This way you'll get a 100% bonus (i.e. you'll get double points).
  • And the last but not least, you'll get some points for returning your flag back to base. The farther your flag was from your base at the moment you touch it to return, the more points you'll get.

    All the above means that a successful Tanki Online CTF player should be a good caper. It is also profitable to hunt down enemy capers to return your own flags back to base. This way you'll score more points than your teammates. Camping and killing everything in sight is not always working in CTF. Unlike playing DM or TDM modes, to be a winner in CTF you should focus on flags and everything that happens around them.

    Answer: the system is changed, now you get 10 points for a frag and 10 points for each enemy tank in a team when you score a flag. You also get some points for returning emeny flag to your base and double points for killing emeny caper.
