Flagging Behind: Battlefield Heroes

It's not a real war unless there are flags involved. How else would we keep score, or fully understand who is in charge? Thankfully, Battlefield Heroes now has a capture the flag mode. Admittedly, I did have to check the date on this several times to make sure capture the flag wasn't actually added in 1842, but it really was added just now. No doubt to compete with another cartoony free-to-play team-based FPS that may be thinking of adding just such a mode in the future. Or that may indeed have had such a mode since its original incarnation in 1996. To jolly things up, there's a trailer to announce the news and it has a rather spiffy voiceover, reminiscent of a rigid lip.

Is anyone still playing, or have powerful purchasables chased you all away?
