Its similar to capture the flag but there is only 1 flag and its in the center of the map.
Players have to capture and hold the flag to gain points. First one (or first team) who reaches the point limit set by host wins.
Players also get kill bonuses; 1 time bonus units and upgrades to the respawning unit which is a Hand Cannoneer at first, later can be upgraded to janissary and elite janissary after certain kills.
This is meant to be played as FFA, but can just as well be played in all possible teams or as diplo.
There is kill and point counter which shows on relics everyone can see and in player's gold/food. There are 10 point limits which can be set by host at game start, so the game can last anywhere from 10 minutes to 5 hours.
I first made this map for Empire Earth expansion back in 2002-2003, however the basic idea of capturing 1 flag is not mine.
