The merry month of May.... The Revival of Team Battles!

The merry month of May, an old English song’s saying… We just let ourselves be motivated by this old wisdom and today you’ll get the first hints what the FLAGSTACK team is working on in May...  

Of course we are not telling details here, we are not finished yet...

Of course you will get more information as soon as we know that everything works as we envision it...

Of course the news starts now!

Everything will be new in Team Battle! Team Battle is undergoing a general overhaul... We have put the cards face up on the table - what is good, what is fun, what is complicated, what is regionally unfair. After much feedback from the community, the negative cards were sorted out and many ideas for the new Team Battle were added.

These cards were reshuffled, we have assessed the pros and cons in intensive discussions between players / volunteers / developers and the FHQ (FLAGSTACK HeadQuarter) - and now it's our turn to implement them…

That means: the next Team Battle in June 2020 will be the last Team Battle of its kind! A beta phase with selected players is planned for July 2020 in order to make the technical fine-tuning. And in August 2020 - if everything works out - the revival of Team Battles will be launched!

Until then we wish you a good time and please stay safe!

Capture the flag....
Your team FLAGSTACK

PS: Don't forget - next weekend is another Voucher Weekend! From Friday 0:00 to Sunday 23:59 (time zone FHQ/Europe/Berlin) you can use your vouchers as you like in the FLAGSTACK webshop... Get your favorite flags and features on https://www.flagstack.net/shop. Log on first, and you'll be right in :-)

Flashmob at home

Well, that's what we call a surprising success! The world's first virtual FLAGSTACK Flashmob event last Saturday united many, many Flaghunters in thought and brought fun in various ways... Some have been busy scanning Friend Flags on their PC, others helped Jumper Flags to make the next jump... And others had the opportunity to "clean up" a Dice Flag Hotspot or even a Night Trail - all over the world everyone did as they could.

Felix11 (DE) has promised that there will be some flag awards (many thanks, you are very generous!). Congratulations to all winners! They were all directly informed by Felix11...

And there are more generous players... Not only because today is Mother's Day in Germany and other countries, but to send a lot of positive news around the world: kasimir (DE) gives a Second Chance Option for Mother's Day to all flag hunters! The Second Chance Option has already been added to your inventory - check it out. Thanks a lot for this generous gesture to you, kasimir!

Many greetings from the FHQ - and to all mothers: feel virtually hugged and let your dear families give you a treat!

Watch your health and Capture the Flag...
Your Team FLAGSTACK

COVID-19 Flashmob at home

This message is to all Flaghunters in the world! For this weekend, you're in for some unlimited fun...

As you may have already seen in the event overview, there will be a very special event on 09.05.2020 from 13-16 h (time zone FHQ / Europe / Berlin).
https://www.flagstack.net/event/2242

Felix11 (DE) had the idea for a virtual Covid-19 - Flashmob - Event, in which all Flaghunter of this world can participate, no matter where you are at this moment :-)

The FLAGSTACK technical team has of course risen to this challenge, and...
...and yes, we have found a way! And yes, we're just gonna try it out!

Scan this code in time to participate in the event and the event race. In the above mentioned period you can play FLAGSTACK as it is possible for you. And if you are ranked at the top of the podium at the end of the event, Felix11 will drop an Eternal Flag to your desired address.

 

Will it work well with the code to activate the event? We can't guarantee 100%. But we tested it in a parallel universe (testing environment) and it was promising.

So why not just join the event and try it out! Maybe you will be a part of a world premiere :-)

Watch your health! Together we will keep the flag flying!

In May for you at FLAGSTACK: #StayAtHome Jumper Flags

Hello FLAGHUNTER,

We hope you and your loved ones are well, under these circumstances?! The world has become a different place because of the COVID 19 pandemic; we all feel the effects of social distancing every day.

At the same time, people are moving closer together in their minds and are constantly making new plans to find better ways to overcome the crisis together.

At FLAGSTACK we keep the flag flying together! This is shown by many great activities :-) In March and April we gave away one Happy Holiday Option to all players every week so you were able to play FLAGSTACK at home and in the surrounding area. In May there will be a change from the FHQ for you...

In May hundreds of #StayAtHome Jumper Flags will be deployed, jumping around the world in addition to all existing Jumper Flags! And because it's always fun to have a new badge as a challenge, you'll get the #StayAtHome special badge if you capture at least 31 Jumper Flags in total from 01.-31.May 2020 (0:00 - 23:59, time zone FHQ / Berlin / Europe).

Additionally you will get the #StayAtHome PLUS special badge if you capture at least 31 Jumper Flags that look like an emoji from 01.-31.May 2020 (0:00 - 23:59, time zone FHQ / Berlin / Europe):


You are wondering why we are not naming the exact number of #StayAtHome special Jumper Flags. Well, we just don't know it yet... Because you can also join this project! Support the whole FLAGSTACK community and get your personal #StayAtHome Jumper Flags, which will be marked with a "sponsored by yourUsername". Please follow this link to the fan shop and order your personal #StayAtHome Jumper Flags until 30.04.2020 at 23:59 (time zone FHQ / Berlin / Europe) :-)

On behalf of our whole team we wish all the best in these hard times.
Watch your health! Together we keep the flag flying!

Your team FLAGSTACK

* PS: To make sure that as many Jumper Flags as possible come to you, close and restart the app every time you change location! By this action and activity (captures) you will definitely attract the Jumper Flags!

FLAGSTACK good news: hide and seek at Easter holiday week!

Hei FLAGHUNTER!

Everyone is staggering at the moment between spring fever and #stayathome. Fortunately, the next great challenge with FLAGSTACK is coming :-)

Cause next weekend is Easter and the egg hunt starts again!

As promised, in the recent days we’ve already hidden golden Easter bunnies in the inventories of Premium Members for free (yeah, the annual Premium Membership is really fantastic)! For all FLAGHUNTERS (with or without Premium Membership) there are even more golden Easter bunnies in the webshop .

Before we let them loose on mankind, of course we explained long and hard to the golden Easter bunnies what they have to do from 10.April, because from this date you can deploy your golden Easter bunnies.

Are you interested in what we taught them? Well, just keep reading...

You can deploy your golden Easter bunny from Good Friday (10 April 2020, 00:00 h, time zone FHQ / Europe / Berlin) via the app. The Easter Bunny automatically hides 40 golden Easter eggs on the map within a 1 km radius of your current deployment location - and you can seek them! They only appear on the map when you get close - about 200 meters - to these Easter Specials! You will find them on roads and footpaths, and amazingly: besides you, other FLAGHUNTERS can also find your golden Easter eggs! For every Easter egg capture, you will randomly receive 6-40 capture points. For at least 32 captured Easter eggs you will also be awarded with a colorful Easter badge and 3,200 bonus points. And if someone captures your golden Easter eggs, you will randomly receive 4-10 capture-on points!

Brand new this year: You can reach this badge several times... Eh? Yes, you read it right! Just keep searching and collecting, and you will enjoy the success and bonus points again :-)

This hidden egg search will run until 23 April 2020, 23:59 h, time zone FHQ / Europe / Berlin. But the mission is not over then...

All FLAGHUNTERS who prefer not to stay out so long, due to the current exceptional situation around the corona virus, will have the chance to collect the golden Easter eggs in a directed way from 24 April 2020 (00:00 h, time zone FHQ / Europe / Berlin). Cause from that moment on all golden Easter eggs will be shown on the map and you won't have to spend more time outside than necessary. From that moment on, the badge will give you 1,600 bonus points and of course it can still be earned several times.

And because Easter holidays are so nice, and the FHQ (FLAGSTACK HeadQuarter) loves you so much, there is another Easter campaign for the community!

Collect 200 Easter Specials from 10 April 2020 (00:00 h, time zone FHQ / Europe / Berlin) and receive 1,000 bonus points in addition to a nice badge! The Easter specials on the map are: Green Flags, Happy Holidays and Jumper Flags in addition to the golden Easter eggs.

All Easter Specials will disappear from the map on Sunday, 26 April 2020 (23:59 h, time zone FHQ / Europe / Berlin) and all this year's Easter Specials will end at this time.

On behalf of our whole team we wish all the best in these hard times and a happy Easter despite the restrictions.

Watch your health! Together we keep the flag flying!

Your team FLAGSTACK

PS: As always, please make sure you have a good GPS signal before deploying - preferably outside the door and where you want to and are able to collect the Easter Specials. As it is not possible to check whether the street is in a security area or how good the mobile reception is, it can happen in individual cases that these Easter Specials are not available. Therefore there is no legal claim to collect all Easter Specials. And therefore you will receive many more Specials as necessary to receive the badge.

There is a new FLAGSTACK REKORD: 29 million captures!

We hope you are doing well in this hard time of the pandemic?! We all feel the need for some normalcy and good news...

Well then, here's a little ray of hope :-) Because all of you FLAGHUNTERs don’t miss the chance to get through the day with a few captures - thanks to many Friend Flags in the “www” and the mega great Happy Holiday options. As a result, sooner or later a new million record comes flying around the corner!

When and where?
In the afternoon of 31.03.2020, in the middle of nowhere in Bloomfield (US)

Who and what?
kingbee (US) had the plan just to do the (almost) daily capture on the Eternal Flag of David491 (US).
And all of a sudden a congratulatory message appeared on the screen for this great record :-)

Yeah, that's a little mean. Now that there are travel restrictions worldwide, everyone wants to go to this new "place to be". But you can't...
No buts, FLAGSTACK makes many things happen!

If you capture any Eternal Flag on Sunday, 05.04.2020 (0:00 - 23:59, time zone FHQ / Europe / Berlin) you will get this badge too!
There's no Eternal Flag in your home zone? Then share coordinates with other FLAGHUNTERS and drop such a great flag for daily captures nearby!

Watch your health! Together we keep the flag flying!

FLAGSTACK news: In these hard times, you are not alone! Happy Holidays for everyone, as a token of our solidarity!

Dear FLAGHUNTERS,

We know many of you are affected by the Corona virus outbreak. Probably you have already taken measures of social distance or self-quarantine to reduce the risk to yourselves and your families.
We urgently ask each and every one of you to take care of your own safety and therefore also the safety of others, and to follow all the guidelines of your regional authorities.

We at FLAGSTACK have also taken measures to ensure the safety of our team. At the same time, we are constantly working to keep the game going.

As always, your safety and well-being are our highest priority. In order to support you in this hard time, in which you have to stay at home, we would like to give a present to you all.

Every player gets a Happy Holiday Option automatically added to their inventory on Monday! This way we want to enable you to capture flags in your immediate surroundings so you don't have to travel far. We will repeat this promotion weekly as long as Corona forces us to stay at home.

Moreover, starting Monday, players with a Premium Membership will also be able to deploy Green Flags and Oracle Flags via the website https://www.flagstack.net/map . Use this great new feature and show your solidarity worldwide to put some Green Flags into other players’ homezone (max. 25 pcs/day).

Of course, FLAGSTACK as an outdoor game feels the consequences of the Corona pandemic. If you want to support FLAGSTACK, please make sure that you don't run out of flags (no panic buying please - there are enough flags for everyone :-) ). Or maybe you purchase a Premium Membership and use it to test the deployment of Green Flags via the website :-)
This is the only way for us to be there for you permanently and keep the systems running. Next weekend there will be another Voucher Weekend again, and you can make big savings with your vouchers and nevertheless support us.

This weekend it's a Double Point Weekend. We've been thinking a lot about canceling it or not. We decided not to. Because many of you made plans for "safe, non-infectious" points for this weekend that we didn't want to thwart. And there are also many players who just step back, stay at home to scan a few Friend Flags.

We will definitely repeat the Double Point Weekend soon after the Corona Crisis, so all of you can enjoy from the heart to play FLAGSTACK outdoors with double points on captures and deploys...!

On behalf of our whole team we wish all the best in these hard times.

Watch your health! Together we keep the flag flying!

Your team FLAGSTACK
