|Dead Cats vs. the [COD] Clan and Shoulderpads for the OMG|

An outstanding CTF match on 2 classic maps...
A Dam Too Far was much more wide-open and, being one of our standards, was not nearly as close of a game. The final score was 29-0, but that really doesn't tell the whole story. A look at the ngWorldStats for the game shows something very different. [COD] played very hard and, despite the margin, never quit, never wimped out, and played it through to the end. This was a very genuine display of serious heart and tremendous sportsmanship.
I've posted a large collection of screenshots from both games. There are approximately 15 pictures per page on four separate pages. Be patient when you view them as each page is close to 1Mb in size.
To see the [DC] vs. [COD] pictures, go here and follow the links:
I've also created links to permament, and trimmed down, versions of the ngWorldStats pages for both games. Click on the links below to see them. The same links are also available at the bottom of the last page of pictures.

The entire map is a long octagonal tube...
The upper level has a large gap in the middle section...
The flag bases form the end caps on the tube...
12 ammo dumps...8 on the ledges and 4 on the floor...
No Frills contains more ammo pick-ups than I've ever seen on a map of its size. There are 12 large ammo dumps...see the image above...placed throughout the length of the tube. Eight of the dumps sit on the side ledges and the other 4 reside on the sloping portion of the floor area. I thought of Sean Connery's line in The Hunt for Red October when he talks about the submarine's missile room. He says, "There are lots of things in here that don't like bullets." That statement could not be truer for a UT server that runs the DE Ammo Mod. You really do have to very carefully place your shots or you may set off a disastrous chain reaction in the ammo. Carrying the flag through these areas is like running through an exploding fireworks factory.
CTF-No Frills has not been declared a finished map. We are effectively going to be a part of the beta-test group. Consequently, I am not going to make the map available for downloading and I am also asking everyone to please not convert your cache file to a .unr until Hobi-Wan gives us the go-ahead. No one wants to have dozens of potential version conflicts floating around out there.
Jagroar creates a face that may worry a few of us...
