Similar treads have been suggested before, but their main idea is NOT allowing the
flag to retreat at all.
Instead of not allowing the flag to retreat at all, I suggest putting a time limit on
WHEN the flag can retreat. This way, If the flag needs to retreat, the team atleast
has a chance to get rolling before the flag retreats.
This would prevent flag's from retreating once the game starts up giving the team
those few minutes to start up. Also it would allow the flag to retreat if their team
completely failed... letting the flag save their ship.
I would suggest putting a 3-5 minute delay on when the flag can retreat.
Now we all know the flag could just d/c on his or her own... But nothing can be done
about that. With the 3-5 minute delay, there is atleast something there that can
atleast slow the flag from retreating.
