Can we treat you to an ice cream?

You can hear it everywhere: Oh, I feel warm! I need a cool down! Where is the nearest shadow?

Don't worry - FLAGSTACK takes care of it!

At the moment there are no larger events for the FHQ (FLAGSTACK HeadQuarter) to serve you a refreshing ice cream. Well then, the ice cream will come to you...!

By the end of the month you will find temptingly delicious ice cream in your favorite flavors on the map :-) Because all flags change their design into appetizing ice cream cones and lure you off the sofa!

Collect as of now at least 700 ice cream cones by 31 August 2020 at 23:59 (time zone FHQ / Europe / Berlin) and you will receive a cool badge for your success instead of kilos on your hips!

 

Ice Ice Flags


This calorie-free summer special will sweeten the rest of August for you! Enjoy a little walk and one ice cream after another - you won't get enough of these delicacies :-)

Have fun and capture the ice-cold flag

31 million captures

With summery 31°C we all sweat a lot... It was a long way to the 31 million captures, which also caused some sweat - but you FLAGHUNTERs made it!

When and where?
On 13.08.2020 this record was broken in the Altes Moor on the A1 motorway at the Horster Dreieck (DE) - many people know this area from traffic reports

Who and what?
Poparni (DE) and Lottikind (DE) were in a private battle for this lucky strike. In the end Poparni was ahead by a split second and captured this Green Flag at the right moment.

Congratulations also to Lottikind, who fortunately took up the flag after Poparni and therefore can enjoy this badge :-)

We congratulate you both and a lot of fun to all the other FLAGHUNTERS who are on their way to get this badge!

Good luck hunting down those millions more

Team Battle is back...

Charge your battery and be at the startline, FLAGHUNTER, because here we go again...!

At the end of June, we all said goodbye to Team Battle in its familiar form. But there was not much time to be sad, cause in July 2020 a bunch of test persons, 120 intrepid beta testers from all over the world, checked the new version of Team Battle successfully. Many thanks to you beta testers for your time, your curiosity, your thoughts and all your efforts for the Team Battle! We were able to realize that the Team Battle is a big part of FLAGSTACK and it is really important to you :-)

Everyone had their hands busy... The beta testers checked the features and gave feedback on the change, found bugs, developed ideas and had hot discussions with the FHQ.  "Tech" reprogrammed, fixed reported bugs, fine-tuned... We are all very satisfied with the result!

The result of the test month? Here are some comments...

„Fuer Tuerme bremse ich sogar auf ebener Strecke.“ - „I like having towers in place of HQ Flags.“ - „Mir gefaellt die neue Battle-Loesung sehr gut.“ - „Spass hat man mit den Tuermen definitiv mehr als mit den Teamflaggen.“ - „Ich finde die Turm-Geschichte aber echt witzig. Da kommt mal neuer Wind ins Spiel.“

Now some more facts:

The new Team Battle starts with the transfer period on 01.08.2020! Create a team (min. level 35 and Premium Membership) or join a team (min. level 25). If your team has at least 3 players it is ready for the restart on 05.August! Things have become easier! No more cumbersome positioning and confirmation of your team flag - that's history... The nightly startle because your team was attacked - is over!

From now on it's: Conquer towers for your team! There are a total of fourteen million (14,000,000) towers in Australia, Europe and the United States with parts of Canada within 2 kilometers of each other, and these towers are waiting for you to capture them. Every 6 hours (00:00, 06:00, 12:00 and 18:00 FHQ time), 5 credits will be credited to your team for each tower your team owns - meaning each tower you capture will earn you up to 20 credits a day! Furthermore you will receive 1 credit for capturing and 2 credits for deploying to the team cash box. Additionally you will receive bonus credits for the faction ranking!
At the end of the month/team battle, the credits from your Team Cashier will be split equally and paid out among the team members. And then you can choose exactly what you want in the Credit Shop (https://www.flagstack.net/creditShop/) and redeem it for your credits.

In the short beta test phase over the last 2.5 weeks, almost 3,000 towers have been captured worldwide. With 120 beta testers, this means on average about 25 towers per player! Due to the fact that the towers are spread so regular, you have the possibility to capture a tower everywhere... On the way to work, shopping, on vacation or on a walk...
And look at it this way: if a tower is difficult to capture, the safer it will be for your team for an entire Team Battle month :-)
In addition, there will be ongoing extensions and additional functions, so that towers that are not accessible at the moment can be yours...

For reaching the first 3 places in the Team Battle Ranking there are badges, which can be earned several times :-)

There are the same chances in all countries with obviously different geographical conditions. In the Beta Battle, the team "The Internationals 1" with members from the USA, AU and GB finished second and they captured incredible 243 towers! Team "The Internationals 2" with the same line-up was able to capture respectable 114 towers and thus earned the main part of the credits for their 7th place in the Team Battle Ranking. In the small but nice Europe everything is different and many things are possible due to the comparatively close settlement (1st place with 310 towers) :-)

Finally and to the anticipation a few beta-tester-opinions :-)

„Kleines Feedback von mir nach rund einer Woche: Die Spielidee finde ich super und genau nach dem Motto: es ist ein Outdoorspiel was nicht auf der Autobahn oder im Zug entschieden wird.“ - „Das neue Sammeln der Tuerme empfinde ich gegenueber dem alten Flaggenklau als wesentlich deutlich schoenere Variante.“

There are no more excuses... Now it's your turn!
Check in for the new Team Battle and make your own great experiences!

Have fun and
Capture the Flag...

Birthday math for advanced students

Hello FLAGHUNTER!

What a great start to the birthday month of FLAGSTACK! The Jumper Flags are jumping around happily - did you get any yet?

Surely some of these entertainers came in handy for the virtual events on Saturday?! There were 529 international participants at the 3 virtual events "in" Australia, Europe and the USA who enjoyed playing together - the perfect "social distancing" method, in a manner of speaking :-)

This fun is reflected in the Event Race... Wherever you live you did your best and we are happy to provide you the "local" and "international" rankings on the website. https://www.flagstack.net/news
The top 3 ranks of the local rankings "Australia", "Europe" and "USA" can look forward to great prizes, which they can use for their next birthday surprise…

And the credit account of the third place winners will be filled up by 15,000 credits each. Enjoy your prizes - choose something nice in the credit shop :-) https://www.flagstack.net/creditShop

But let's talk about your math problem. 5x5 = ?

Next weekend the next big challenge awaits you in this birthday month. Two badge series are waiting for you. Each series consists of 5 badges which are based on each other and are unlocked one after the other by reaching the previous badge. So far so good? Yeah, sure!

You will start with the following tasks:
Series "easy-peasy" - Collect 25 Green Flags and after completing this, the next task will be visible for you
Series "hard-yard" - Place 25 Green Flags (via web or app) on the map and after that you will see your next ToDo

The two series of this 5x5-Challenge will start on 10.07.2020, 00:00 and end on 19.07.2020, 23:59 (time zone FHQ/Europe/Berlin). The activation of the next task is entirely up to you - with every completed badge of this challenge the next task will become visible - whenever you manage to do this within the above mentioned time period.

With the Double Point Weekend on 17-19.07-2020 you have another special motivation to complete the challenge, because surely you have already reserved this weekend for extraordinary FLAGSTACK activities :-)

Stay attentive, optimistic and cheerful - together we will keep the flag flying!

Team Battle 2.0

Hello FLAGHUNTER!

We are sitting here writing to you with mixed feelings, one crying and one laughing eye. Right now, the final minutes of Team Battles, as we all know it, are running.

For 55 months Team Flags have been protected and picked, players were frustrated and delighted. Again and again questions and thoughts came up, both from FLAGHUNTERS and the FHQ... What is good, what does no one need, what can be improved? Instead of tinkering with small things from time to time, we draw a line under the previous Team Battle.

But of course this is not over! You know: As one door closes, another door opens...

In July, more than 100 voluntary FLAGHUNTERs test the new version of the Team Battles! There will be less "administrative stuff", but more possibilities. The future will also be called Team Battle and of course there will still be teams and a transfer window at the beginning of the month...

The beta testers will thoroughly test the new principle in July, so we can start with a fine-tuned Team Battle 2.0 in August. They are looking forward to it...and we at the FHQ are happy about it!

You can be curious what to expect in August!

Best wishes from the FHQ!

Capture the flag...

You wanna go in the bounce house...?

Hello FLAGHUNTER,

We are very excited, in a birthday mood and can hardly wait for July :-)
To help you planning your leisure time in July, please take a look at the schedule for celebrating FLAGSTACK's 5th birthday:

01.-31.07.2020
Do you remember your fifth birthday? Nowadays we would love to spend such a great day on the Bouncy House all day long!
No problem at all - with FLAGSTACK you can even feel like being on a bounce house for the whole month to celebrate the 5th birthday - a 31-day Jumper Flag Party all day long :-)

As promised, there will be over 5,000 Jumper Flags on the map to celebrate the birthday with us, with a colorful bouquet of flowers of owners: from FLAGSTACK as a thank you and because we are so happy to be with you, from the Official FLAGSTACK Volunteers (who get these Jumper Flags as a thank you present for their great tireless efforts for FLAGSTACK), and from FLAGHUNTERS who were lucky enough to get one of the birthday jumper packages... This will be MEGA FUN!

01.-09.07.2020
Do you like the Green Flag deployment via the website? Then you will love this period - because you will be able to deploy even 100 Green Flags daily via the website! Look at it as a worthwhile investment in the future - if you keep reading you know what we mean ;-)

04.07.2020
These 3 virtual events will take place on the first weekend of July to celebrate FLAGSTACK's 5th birthday:
 
Happy Birthday Flagstack (AU) - https://www.flagstack.net/event/2259 - 04.07.2020, 12:00 (Australia/Sydney)
Happy Birthday Flagstack (DE) - https://www.flagstack.net/event/2260 - 04.07.2020, 12:00 (Europe/Berlin)
Happy Birthday Flagstack (USA) - https://www.flagstack.net/event/2261 - 04.07.2020, 12:00 (America/New_York)
 
What does that mean - virtual event? You can participate in this event - no matter where you are. Scan the code on the event's website (see top links) during the event period and play together with all other event participants. The Event-Race Ranking makes it exciting for those who want to play for points with the others - and it will be worth it, because the FHQ (FLAGSTACK Head Quarter) will reward the upper ranks with awards
:-)

10.-12.07.2020
5x5 = ?
We will give you the answer to this obviously easy arithmetical problem in the next newsletter...

17.-19.07.2020
Yeah - it's time for a Double Point Weekend :-) More about this in the later newsletter...

24.-26.07.2020
Voucher Weekend - Special offers just for you!

As you can see, July 2020 is all about your fun for the 5th birthday of FLAGSTACK... We hope you can enjoy the variety and that you have as much fun as possible with FLAGSTACK despite the ongoing worldwide pandemic! Stay attentive, optimistic and cheerful - together we will keep the flag flying!

Capture the flag...
