A standoff is when both teams have the other's flags and bolster down defenses around the flag carrier. The standoff is settled when a player finally breaks through the hostiles' defenses and returns the flag. The flag carrier will have a relatively easy time capturing it since most of their enemies were on defense. Many deployables (Ex. light turrets, force fields, and mines) along with team members will be defending their own flag carrier.
