CTF-November (whose full name is November Sub Pen) is a map appearing in Unreal Tournament.


Map description Edit

The arena is set in a underground submarine pen. Both teams' bases are defense-oriented, making the opposing team's flag a lot more difficult to capture, though the map lends itself to the Red side.

There are several named zones in the map:

  • Sub Pen: The central area of the map, holds the eponymous pen.
    • Water: The underwater of the central area.
  • Red Base: The water-filled red base; the flag is at the end of the north tunnel, while at the east tunnel red players spawn near the Rocket Launcher.
  • Red Entry: The area with the sniper nest and the crates at the Red Base, which has even more crates.
  • Red Foyer: The south entrance to the Red Base.
  • Blue Base: The area of the Blue Base with the crates containing the flag.
  • Blue Foyer: The entrance to the Blue Base, including the stairs.

Tips and tricks Edit

  • The Translocator will help you to bypass the biggest burdens of each base: the Blue Base stairs (you can translocate to the Blue Base directly via tube or by just translocating to the top stairs), the Sub Pen water area (by translocating directly to the sub) and the Red Base water pool. You can even get an extra opening to attack the Blue Base by translocating through the Sniper's Nest (though you can't exit with the flag from here).

Trivia Edit

  • The submarine is absent in the console versions.
  • Two versions of the same map going by the names CTF-November and CTF-December (not to be confused with the UT200X map) were found in the UT betas. There aren't much changes between these versions, as they feature the same asymmetrical bases with merely different deco placement.
  • Rich Eastwood created a Clan Edition of the map that took the best of the Red and Blue bases in order to create a symmetrical map which became very popular for team games. This version's popularity ensured the appearance of the map in the UT200X series, as those versions followed the symmetrical design of the CE instead of the original map.

CliffyB's notes Edit

"The issue of symmetry is something we really beat ourselves up over when making the UT maps. At the end of the day we went with a mixed selection; some maps were symmetrical while others weren't. The asymmetrical maps required a ton of testing and we feel that they're pretty well balanced. (...) In CTF-November there's a long winding staircase to the blue base, but once you get the flag you can just drop right out of it. In the red base there's a long pipe leading to the flag that you have to run through to get in and out of the base."
