Capture the Flag Gametype


The votes are in and this is the gametype you voted on!
Awhile back we had a poll for all of you to vote on what gametype you wanted to see next. After tallying the votes our team immediately got to work on bringing Capture the Flag to you!


What is Capture the Flag ?
Some of you may have not heard of or played Capture the Flag before, so let’s go over the basics:


  • There are two teams, red and blue.
  • Your goal is to go to your enemies’ base and grab the flag.
  • Once you have the flag, you need to sneak back to your base and place the flag, ultimately scoring you a point.
  • Once a team reaches ‘x’ points, they win.
  • Players can’t deliver the flag to their base unless their flag is there.
  • That means if both flags were picked up, the flag would have to be returned before a point is scored.


Capture the Flag is a classic and a ton of fun.
Capture the Flag has been around for decades in many different forms from real life to video games such as Runescape, Halo, World of Warcraft, and more. It was a joy the setup this gametype for Minecraft here at Apex and our team had a blast revisiting such a great gametype that a lot of us enjoyed in the many forms over the years. We are glad to bring this gametype to all of you whom voted and for those of you whom may have voted on other gametypes don’t worry! We still have those in the works and will have more the announce in the future!


Until next time,
