Happened two times so far. The flag shows as yours (the one on the flagpole), but all the other markers are still from the enemy. You can not retake the flag (nothing happens, since the progressbar is already full on your teams side) and it is not availabe as a spawnpoint.
Isn't this an old BF2 bug?
I don't know what causes that bug, but I have seen it on rare occasions. I haven't really seen it in a public setting for a while, only on one custom map for the tournament I play in.
When that happens, you have to get all of your guys out of the flagzone and let the flag reset itself. Then you can move in and take it. Very annoying when it happens.
I have seen this in Mersa Matruh, playing single player. I haven't seen it before, but I must admit I havent played 2.1 for a very long time.
Yeah, I've noticed it, but its very easy to fix, just leave the cap zone and come back in and it'll be fine
yeah this is a known random BF2 bug, cant do anything aout it and dont know what it causes. As Niebler stated, to "solve" this every soldier has to leave the flag area and then reenter it and it will be properly capped.
It's just a bit hard to tell the bots to leave that area and come back later when the flag has decided to work as intended again. :naughty:
