Here the official rundown:
The match with the Crackaz will be played on October 27th on the 22.214.171.124 Stuffed Cats Inc. Server. The first game starts at 5:00pm CST. The server will come down and restart in match mode at around 4:00pm CST to give all players ample time to make sure they can get on the machine with a stable connection...and allow for a bit of pre-game practice time.
The rules are the best 2 out of 3 games; each game will be for 30 minutes or 10 caps; and all games will be played in the Low-Gravity mode.
Game #1 - CTF-Showdown: 125% speed, 55% air control, hard-core, no mods,
Dead Cat Players for Game #1: Sanecow, Cronic, Missing Lynx, Frisky, Zombie Woof,
Game #2 - CTF-A Dam Too Far: 100% speed, 35% air control, hard-core, DE

The DC Clan Skins will be up, but all the other custom file pushes will be turned off. All DC players must wear your skin if you want me to get your name right on the pictures for the website. Big T Crackaz will help me to identify their players if I don't get them all written down during the games.

Camp on this puppy at your own risk...
Very dark and very tough means no cheap captures...
CTF-Camouflaged has an excellent little anti-camper feature built into the map. It is possible to stand still, but only if you're very alert and only for brief periods of time. CTF-Floating Fortress is a very dark map. How dark is "very dark?" Well, it is brighter than CTF-Evil Exor. Camouflaged is small and tight and will demand serious team-work to score. Floating Fortress is quite large, has multiple levels, and is very well suited to a Low-Gravity game setting.
|CTF-An Acid Pipe Xmas ~ A Christmas Map Special|

A small hint of the many Xmas treats that await you...
The map is all about enjoying the holiday season...nothing more...nothing less. I am only posting the one screenshot as there are many treats to discover on the map and I do not want to spoil the surprise for anyone. The basic layout is still CTF-Acid Pipe in almost every respect. It has the Impact Hammer added in the same location as on the Acid Pipe Dead Cat Special Edition. All other weapons and pickups are unchanged other than as in the SE. They have all been more precisely located and are a bit better balanced.
Many thanks to Steve Nabors aka |NoVa|Slick_Willy for his precip generator and portions of his, and Shock Systems, snow textures, Dale "Hobi-Wan" Hobil for pointing me in the right direction several times, Wet Chicken for looking over my shoulder and keeping me focused, everyone else that I kept dragging into my office during the construction phase to get their opinions, Bing Crosby...and of course my most sincere gratitude to Boris Niclas, [UTFC] Zeratul, for letting me use CTF-Acid Pipe as the base for this map. Acid Pipe has been the signature standard for the Dead Cats for almost two years now and it still gets played several times a day on our main server. When the notion of a Christmas map popped into my head, there was no doubt that it had to be Acid Pipe in winter trim and properly decked out for the holidays.
So get out your elf hats, start up UT, turn up the music slider in your preferences menu, and then kick-back and enjoy CTF-An Acid Pipe Xmas!
