'Overwatch's' new Capture The Flag map and competitive mode is live

Now, which is ideal timing with the new event coming up, it will be possible to do the swap right up until the beginning of a match!

This year, we're celebrating Lunar New Year with changes to our Capture the Flag mode, including a new competitive mode, the new map Ayutthaya, and many gameplay improvements. The Chinese New Year doesn't officially start until February 16, but Blizzard is kicking things off a bit early. During the Year of the Dog, Blizzard is set to hold a competitive ranked version of capture-the-flag, which will be played on the new map of Ayutthaya, which is set in Thailand.

It was particularly created for the sake of Capture the Flag, as it features two polar opposites: one side which feature ancient temples, and another side that features a modern and colorful era of the country. Even though you can instantly pick it up now, you will also drop it when using some abilities that involve either mobility or invulnerability.

Sudden death will break ties at the end of a match. For sudden death, both flags will get close to the center of the map.

Trump's parade: Rep. Brad Schneider's bid to block large scale military parade
Such parades in other countries are usually staged to celebrate victories in battle or showcase military might. One possibility is for a parade on November 11, the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.

This means that the games will be fast paced and full of action, focusing on building a stronger offense.

Players that complete their Capture the Flag placement matches will receive a special spray.

According to reports, the first thing that the Year of the Dog event will bring to "Overwatch" is a new map that was specifically constructed to the features of Thailand. Moreover, Kaplan said that they add a new highlight intro for one of the heroes. This will be the second time Blizzard's team shooter has seen an event based around the Lunar new year. Most notably, a new Doomfist buff is skipping the PTR testing phase and going straight into the game.
