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 Cloud CTF.

Joining a Team

During Cloud CTF 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:

The Player Options are listed in descending order: play solo, join a team, and create a team.

This will give you the option to select the existing team that you would like to join.

The drop-down menu is located in the middle right of the window.

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

The text says, "You are requesting to join this team. You can start playing this competition once the team leader has approved your request." Underneath the text, there is a "leave this team" button.

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.

Managing a Team

Approving a Team Member Request

Team leaders have the ability to manage their team. Players must be approved by the team leader prior to joining the team and may dismiss team members from the team at any time.

Approving a Team Member Request from a Notification

Player requests will display a notification next to the profile icon in the upper-right hand corner of the screen as shown below:

Displays a profile icon with a red notification in the upper-right corner of the screen.

Clicking on your profile icon will display your name and email along with any notifications you have. The request will indicate the player's name:

Underneath the second listing of the user's email is the request, "Student 3 is requesting to join your team".

Click on the request and a pop-up will display with the options to either reject or approve the request.

The "cancel" button is in the bottom-left corner of the pop-up. The "reject" and "approve" buttons are in the bottom-right corner.

Approving a Team Member Request from the Team Page

Leaders can further manage their team from the "My Team" page of Cloud CTF. Here, you can view current and pending members of the team. Select the "Edit" icon to manage your team.

The edit icon is located in the upper-right corner of the screen.

In this pop-up, you can change your team name (if allowed by the Cloud CTF Admin), remove current members of the team with the "trash" icon, and approve/deny team requests with the "thumbs-up" icon. Be sure to save any changes by selecting "Confirm" when you are done.

In descending order, the option to change the team name is available under "Name", current members are located under "Members", and then pending members are under "Pending Members". The "cancel" and "confirm" buttons are located in the bottom-right corner of the pop-up.
