  • oCTF 6 Annoucement

    Firstly, we'd like to thank DC949 for all the hard work they've done in the past years putting together and running the oCTF game. We've had a lot of fun playing these last few years and hope that we will continue that with our game(s). The contest is back this year under new management but hopefully will be every bit as fun if not more. We've seen a lot of talk in the last couple weeks in regard to what was happening with the contest and we wanted to take this time to provide some clarification, hopefully without giving too much away.

    The format of the game will not be changing drastically this year. The game will be a mixture of vulnerable services and one time flags which time depreciate after being released. Services will be polled at a regular interval awarding points to the current team in control. Bonus points will be awarded to teams for breaking a streak of ownership based on the time the flag was previously held. The game will be a total of approximately 24 hours running from 10am to 10pm on Friday and Saturday.

    Based on our current planning we foresee our limiting factor in allowing teams to play being the physical space that we are being provided. In order to make sure that we are able to accommodate everyone possible who wants to play please sign up ahead of time so that we can get an idea of how many teams and players there are going to be. We'll be releasing the sign up form on the website ( soon.

    edit: updated the time, sorry for the confusion
