While the team mates are trying to keep the flag in that location, the opponent team members are virtually trying to remove those flags, and plant their own. Users are being rated for planting, protecting, and taking down a flag and get in the Palwar League with their scores and receive surprise gifts each week. When we are out wandering, our team spirit reaches another dimension in Palwar.”
