Would you like to play a game?

I have an idea for an event that I think would be a lot of fun. Basically itís a game of capture the flag. You have two teams. Each has a maker or flag. This would be a cargo container like object. Both teams drop their flags in the middle of an empty sector of space in the same system. Then the two teams try to find each otherís flag and bring it to a station. The first team to do this wins the game.
Of course combat between the two side would be allowed. To make things even all players would use n00b ships and weapons. Whether or not a player could return to the game after their ship was destroyed would be decided before hand. So you could also win by eliminating the other team completely in some games.
Thereís a lot of room for variations here. Teams could have more then two flags. There could be more then two team. And so on and so forth.
Iím putting this idea out to see if there is any interest. Would anyone like to try this?

It is an interesting idea. Certain problems like the fact that you can see an object 5000m away would detract from the problem of searching for the object. It would be more of a defend the cargo type thing.

Also, if this game was between two teams it would make sense that they are allowed to come back into the game, or that they immediatley respawn after, say five minutes.

The gameplay would have to change for this sort of thing to be done well. It would become a sort of Battlefront II inside Vendetta, which while it may not be a nessecarily bad thing, it may not be something to invest time and effort in.
