As the title suggests, I strongly believe that adding a second limit to the game, that ends the game once a number of flags have been scored, would greatly improve the experience for players of this near-dead minigame.

The main reason I suggest this would be the obvious case of the "How many games?(?!?!?)" achievement. Of course, suggesting the complete removal of this requirement would be selfish when considering the people that have already battled through it, but this would be a way to reduce the time taken, at a cost of no longer being afk. That way, trimmers can decide which path they'd rather follow to get it done. 700+ hours of afk is one hell of a tall order, on top of the other (much more realistic) requirements that only take a few dozen hours at most - it seems very top-heavy as it is (note: absolutely no complaints about the other requirements, as they seem a fair enough ask for the "final" cape).

I'd imagine a toggleable option for (eg) a five flag score limit could entice more people to revive this minigame as well.

If this were implemented, this CW requirement would still be by far the longest to finish, but would give people more flexibility in how they wanted to do it; the fact that the game is nearly entirely populated by people going for the trimmed cape is a symptom of the fact that the game's on life support, only kept going by the fact that removing it would completely put the finger up at those with the trimmed cape. Is there not a way to somewhat improve this experience?

No support. This would encourage game rigging over actually playing the game.

I.E. it would be faster to take turns taking turns letting teams +5 and end the game early than it would be playing the game in reality. It would also be even faster to sell/rig games and have one team constantly lose.

They should just make castlewars f2p, like OSRS has done.
