Play Capture the Flag to Celebrate Flag Day!

Did you know that June 14th is Flag Day? Flag Day celebrates the adoption of the United States flag by the Second Continental Congress in 1977. The week of the 14th is called Flag Week and it’s common for people to celebrate with a barbecue or other patriotic celebrations. However, in EMD we like to celebrate a different way- by playing Capture the Flag! Be sure to gather your friends and head on over to the Badlands to get started!

Capture

Strategy is key to winning a game of Capture the Flag, or CTF as we call it. Being able to work together as a team plays a large part in developing your team’s strategy and changing it as the game progresses. Without proper communication, it is easy for a team to have too many players attempting to capture the other team’s flag and thus exposing their own. On the other hand though, if no one from your team pushes forward to capture the flag, then it is impossible for your team to win.

Sometimes during a game of CTF, your team will need to change your strategy. This often happens as the time limit approaches or one team secures a substantial lead. Changing your teams strategy might be as simple as just sending more players forward or as complicated as executing a ‘feigned’ retreat to draw the other team away from their flag. Regardless of what your strategy is or how it changes throughout a game of CTF, communication and cooperation are keys to CTF.

Armed with this new knowledge and these helpful tips, be sure to assemble your friends head on out to the Badlands during Flag Week to earn some coins playing CTF.

The History of Snowy Cliffs

The mystical Snowy Cliffs were always thought to be uninhabitable and dangerous, no place for someone to race. But when a few brave explorers finally climbed to the top, they discovered that they were wrong. On the three peaks of the Snowy Cliffs were three raceways left by an ancient culture, perfectly preserved in pristine condition.

Further exploration of the Snowy Cliffs has revealed an ancient tribal village, abandoned without any trace of the people that once lived there or why they might have left so suddenly. The village was centered around hot springs, the bursts of hot steam providing much-needed warmth to the chill that envelopes the Snowy Cliffs. Perhaps there was some sort of volcanic activity that had scared the villagers off, activity that ultimately did not result in anything.
