Team Management - Players


This article details how players join and manage a team. For more information on signing up and joining a team, please see the article titled Getting Started in CloudCTF.

Joining a Team

During CloudCTF sign-up, players must select between playing solo, joining a team, and creating a team. If you would like to join an existing team, select "Join a Team" when you reach the following menu during sign-up:

If you would like to join a team when accessing CloudCTF, please select "join a team," which is the third option out of the three "player options."

This will take you to a drop-down menu, where you can select an existing team that you would like to join.

Selecting join a team will present you with a dropdown menu of other teams that you can join.

Once you have selected your team, press join. This will send a request to the team leader, who will either approve or deny your request to join. You will be unable to submit challenge flags until you have been approved by a team.

Once you have selected a team to join, you will be notified that you will be able to join the team once the team leader has approved the request.

Upon request to join, you will be shown the above page until you are approved. You may cancel your request to join the team prior to approval by the team, and request to join another team.
