    Default Whitefall Steppes Bug or Exploit?

    This

    Thats where we was able to see where is our stolen flag on map.

    Not sure it's exploit or bug that flag doesn't appears on map.
    But i hope Trion is aware of this if it's bug.

    I've found it to be pretty flaky at times. You can be looking at the guy holding it and it does not show on the map.

    I agree it has been happening to me as well. For both sides. I have adapted and I look for the bright column of light shooting up to locate the flag for now.

    When first picked up the flag disappears from the map for a short time. Suspect its to give the carrier a bit of a head start so you cant see which direction he ran off with it.

    Least that's how it's always been for me.
    I do not suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

    I figured it just doesn't show inside the base. It's not until the carrier gets out of the base that it shows up on the map.

    Blue(guardian) flag in screen was already in defiant base when we 1st were able to see it on map...

    But i see this happens a lot, so i guess it's bug...

    Indeed you do not see the flag for a bit when first capped. I am not sure though if you can keep dropping it and passing it to team mates to keep it invisible (sounds like it would be way more abused by now if that worked). Perhaps there was just an amazing running spec'd player who was able to get some hefty mileage before it showed up?

    Honest opinion, I think it's bogus it shows you *at all* on the map where the flag is. You shouldn't be able to hit a map and see the enemy carrying your flag, would rather see that taken away. That is some mickey mouse stuff right there. As if glowing with a huge blue light that touches the sky isn't enough. Kind of wish that was taken to, or atleast lowered to only stretch a couple feet above the carrying, so you can't see the carrier a mile away. that is like playing CTF with wallhacks.

    I see this all the time. I wonder it is because of the carrier is warping ahead.

    Happens from time to time. I don't think it's a diabolical plot.

    Ditto. Seen the flag not show on map. Seen the column of light fails to render. Even seen the stone not render on the holder. Really bad when all three happen. The only clue is objective target window that can let me click on a person, but that gives me no idea of their relative position if they are not in line of sight.

    Be nice if it gets fixed.

    Only seen this a few times, so not sure if a morph is causing it or if it's random.
    Clicking on the objective window is pretty much the only thing left to do (and checking where the cursor on your character circle points to, but some people can't even figure that out I guess).

    Fun though to hide in a tree stump with the flag and get the enemy team to rage

    don't you get a arrow on the ground pointing to the person that you are targeting?

    And that how I found out where the person is at

    I've never had an arrow point me to anything in game. May be something that is turned off, or a glitch with ATI cards.
