Capture points:

  • We will be using Ehasa made “capture point devices”.

  • Information of the claiming is transferred to status.ehasa.org after pressing the button for the first time.
  • If a player is waiting to respawn at a cature point but the enemy starts capturing it, the player who is waiting to respawn must move to another respawn point.

Capture points and resource points:

  • The capture and resource points are flagboxes made by Ehasa.
  • The flag box will be attached to a pole or to a tree at the capture point. There are respawn areas in the vicinity of the capture point from where you can respawn. The capture points are marked alphabetically in the Status-system.
  • The flag boxes at the resource points can be found next to a “fuel pump”. You can not respawn at resource points. Resource point has only one purpose and that is to collect resource points(fuel) for your faction. Fuel can be used for helicopter transports and many other services for your team. The resource points are numbered in the Status-system.
  • Whether the resource point is visible on the status or not it can be still capturet. Not every resource point is visible in the Status-system in the beginning of the game.
  • A fuel pump can be destroyed in which case there is no flag box at the site. There will, however, be instructions on how to fix the pump.
  • You can follow the situation live from the Status.ehasa.org -website.
  • Capturing a flag point takes normally 30 minutes after pressing the button coloured by factions (red, yellow, green). Some of the buttons may be remotely disabled.
  • After 30 minutes the flag box will make a sound and after that the player has one minute to press the button again to confirm the capture. After this the flag box will be assigned to your faction.
  • The information about the capture will immediately transmit to the status.ehasa.org-site after the first press of the button.
  • It is not allowed to respawn from the capture point during the capturing process. The players have wait for it to be captured or go to another respawn point to respawn.


  • You can recognize rallypoints from small one man tents, colored tape around a respawn area and the faction flag on the tent.
