Attack-defense is another interesting kind of competition. Here every team has their own network(or only one host) with vulnerable services. Your team has time for patching your services and developing exploits usually. Then, organizers connect participants of the competition and the wargame starts! You should protect own services for defense points and hack opponents for attack points. Historically this is a first type of CTFs, everybody knows about DEF CON CTF – something like a World Cup of all other competitions.
Mixed competitions may vary possible formats. It may be something like wargame with special time for task-based elements (e.g. UCSB iCTF).
CTF games often touch on many other aspects of information security: cryptography, stego, binary analysis, reverse engineering, mobile security and others. Good teams generally have strong skills and experience in all these issues. (https://ctftime.org/ctf-wtf/)
