Divide Your Team

During a game of capture the flag it might seem like a good plan to divide your attacking force evenly and assault both sides of the field. While this strategy will sometimes work, it is more effective to concentrate your forces on one side of the field so you can push hard and quickly confront the enemy.

Divide Your Team

Divide your team in a 3-2-1 ratio of players, so if you have 12 players, there will be groups of 6, 4, and 2. The largest group is your strong side force, your middle group will defend your base, and your smallest group is your weak side contingent.
