    We had loads of fun at the Zombies World Championship (ZWC) on August 19th! Aside the lack of sleep (and very seldom chances to eat those delicious tacos outside), we had the honor of being an integral part of the competition, as well as hanging with the Z-YouTubers, some very important people from Activision/Treyarch, and most importantly, awesome fans of all ages. I wanted to share with you some nice photos I managed to take during my time there. ----------------------------------------------------------------- We also wanted to take time out to see what we can do to improve ourselves (as CoDZ) for the next event! What kind of things would you want to see go down on our end? For example, game challenges, Mystery Box roulette, certain kind of store items, etc etc.

    So the WWII Private Beta finally came to us on Friday and what a weekend it has been. It didn't completely go to plan as my cars brakes decided to give up on me so not a good start to my Friday but the weekend got better. I spent so much more time than planned playing the beta and I can honestly say, well done sledgehammer. First of all, the game is still in beta as we know so we're going to give it a little space and time but for the first beta of the game they have absolutely nailed it. Such a big difference in gameplay and over all satisfaction. The 3 maps were really good. The only thing I had a problem with was how small they were and that didn't really give us the best advantage while using snipers but the new war gamemode and map made up for that. All of the guns were usable and good. ARs felt amazing, SMGs melted up close, LMGs were outstanding and longer ranges, especially on their bipods. Shotguns actually felt good and useable as well as the snipers. Another problem I came across was the fact that the game just seemed very SMG friendly. Everyone used them, hopefully with the addition to new and bigger maps this will make people use other guns. The new menu is very clean and nice. A problem i came across with it though was that you can't actually tell if your friend has joined your party. The only way of seeing is going into your party settings and make sure his/her name is there. I also really like the ability to pick character faces and I also love the Divisions idea instead of create a class . I will be playing it again next week in the open beta where more things will be added which should be even more fun. But for the games first beta, it is very good and steady game. The servers were fantastic. Never lagged or got disconnected once. The level was capped at 20 then was raised to 25 which gave us a few extra items bit nothing too big. I can't wait to see what zombies will be like as for only playing a still in beta and very small part of the game, I have been very happy with the outcome. If you have any questions to ask please feel free to ask me anything and I'll try and answer the best I can! :)

    Zombies TCG (OFFICIAL GUIDE) Introduction On the brink of a fractured universe, the undead mindlessly roam the isolated wastelands that we once called Earth. An alien rock, dubbed Element 115, has become the source of energy for these zombies to continue thriving, reanimating long-dead survivors. This element, unfortunately, attracted an unknown extraterrestrial race from another universe - the Apothicons. These creatures were once said to devour and consume entire worlds, feeding off any form of pure energy and life with an insatiable appetite. This, however, was the least of our worries. In the tear of fabric of time and space, slayers from different corners of realities and time had seemingly bled into this broken universe, unaware of the chaos that lay ahead of them. At the same time, dark entities who once held power over these alternate realities had also passed into this one as well, some still connected to the Dark Aether’s energy. Familiar with these evils, the remaining survivors joined forces to defeat the undead and evil once again. With mortal forces going against both the zombies and long-forgotten evil, the survivors must find a way to eliminate them once and for all before they gain control of the Aether’s true power to take over this, and many other universes.... or before the Apothicons finally consume what is left of this universe. How to Play Respective to the current game-play mechanics of the Zombies mode, one or more players act as the Survivor(s) in a quest to defeat the other player, the Controller, of the dimension. Unlike the actual mode, however, there is an end-game: the one who eliminates the other wins and claims control over this universe. The Survivors are graced with Wonder Weapons, Traps, and Perks to aid them. The Controller has a wide arsenal of enemy types to assimilate the current dimension. What happens when good and evil clash against one another? Well...that's for you - the player - to find out. Since the Controller automatically presumes residence in the Aether, they are allowed to deal the first card onto the arena by pulling a card from the enemy pile. After the first zombie is chosen, the Survivor can now decide what the next move is. A card may be placed or bought which will use up 1 turn, or the Survivor can decide to attack the zombie. When an attack is performed, a card will lose HP in the form of “hit marker chips”. For example, if Tank Dempsey is attacked by a Zombie, his health will go 5 HP → 3 HP since a Zombie deals 2 damage. Thus, Tank Dempsey’s card will have 2 hit marker chips on it. If he reaches all 5 HP in chips at any point in the game w/o Juggernog, he will be downed. Likewise, if Tank Dempsey attacks the Zombie, the Zombie’s will go 3 HP → 0 HP because Tank Dempsey has 3 Attack Points (AP), and the Zombie only has 3 HP. At that point, the Zombie is killed and sent to the “Aether” (used) pile. The determination of how much health a card has is depicted by the value of HP chips attributed to it. In the previous example of Tank Dempsey being attacked by a Zombie, the player must take away HP chips, so there should be HP chips amounting to a total of 3 (the player can choose how they would like to set it up, so long as the total value equates to what HP is left). A die may also be used if certain events, such as special effects from certain cards or hits at the Mystery Box for a lovely weapon to defend yourself. Who knows - it’s all in the gamble! *I will be updating the OP with Basic set ups, Survior/Controller Setups, and much more! stay tuned! Basic Setup Minimum of two (2) type of players - one Survivor and one Controller. The game will allow up to a maximum of five (5) total players, (4) Survivors and (1) Controller. Every action takes up 1 turn, and 1 round is completed when both players finish their turns. At the end of each round, Survivors get +1 HP chip returned as a form of health regeneration unless max HP is achieved. Enemies, Bosses, and Controllers are unaffected by this. Points (Zombies TCG Currency) Rate generated for Survivors: Each attack = 10pts Each Enemy kill = 250pts Each Boss kill = 500pts How To Use A Survivor: Players can choose whichever Survivor they deem worthy to protect the universe. Survivors have the option to reshuffle their used weapon deck for a “Max Ammo” doing so will cost 10 points. If a Survivor uses die and rolls a 6 on the "Power Up" card pile a "Max Ammo” is Granted. (Trap cards require at least 3 rounds for re-use) Survivors can only damage a Controller if there are NO undead are on the field. A total of 4 Survivors are allowed on the field. (*An Extra Survivor can be added at any given time during the Survivor's turn. 1 turn will be sacrificed if a Survivor is added during a Solo game.*) If there are 2 or more players playing only 1 Survivor allowed per player. Chose wisely as you will be stuck with this character until the end of the game. Should a Survivor go down, another Survivor may sacrifice 1 turn to revive them. If 2 Rounds pass (1 Action = 1 Turn ) without being revived, the downed Survivor will bleed out for 5 Full Rounds (Unless reanimated by another card’s effect). If the downed Survivor is the only hero on the field, they automatically lose the game (Unless Quick Revive has been bought). Effects cannot replenish if a downed Survivor is revived or bleeds out.

    For those who don't know, the Zombies World Championship ("ZWC") is a collaborative effort by popular Zombies YouTuber mcsportzhawk and 1P Entertainment to create the first ever real-time Zombies tournament. The physical event will take place in Los Angeles, CA. in Thunder Studios on August 19th. 12 YouTubers - including MrRoflWaffles, TheSmithPlays, Glitching Queen, MrDalekJD, RadAustin27, and more - will be competing against one another with 4 lucky but overall winners from the online tournament that went down from the end of June to July 26th. In the online competition section, 4 challenges were crafted to test the mettle of slayers - 2 Easter Egg speedruns on Gorod Krovi and Revelations, and 2 high round runs on Verruct w/ no Juggernog and Origins starting room. Each top player per challenge is being flown out to Thunder Studios for free to compete with the YouTubers for a dip in the prize pool of $20,000! As of July 5th, Call of Duty Zombies proudly teamed up with mcsportzhawk to help promote the ZWC! Not only are we advertising it, but we also have special amenities for our fans and community. We are setting up booth at the ZWC on August 19th for giveaways and special Zombies items, but most importantly, we have a very special registration link for those who still wish to enter the tournament and submit their video before July 26th to compete. It's only $15 to compete instead of the normal $20, and who wouldn't want to play with the YouTubers?! Even if you aren't competing, we invite you to come down to Los Angeles in August to meet us up at our CoDZ booth! We got lots of special goodies being given around, and would love to see some Zombies fans out there from the CoDz community as well! Who will we be seeing there?

    I have avoided joining discussions about life purpose and such because that is not what I come to this forum to discuss, but I think this thread is an appropriate place to offer my perspective. This post for me is opinion and personal belief. I am a Christian. My life purpose is to follow the Bible and spread God's love to the world. After death if someone has recognized that Jesus died for their sins and had surrendered themselves to Him then they go to Heaven and if not then they will be in Hell. Only God knows someone's heart, and what they truly believed at the moment of their passing is a mystery (although we can speculate). Accepting Jesus' sacrifice is the only way to heaven and God in His trinity is the source of all truth. Everyone is naturally "bad" and we are all sinners in need of Jesus' sacrifice in order to be worthy of Heaven. There are lots of tangents and specifics to debate about but really that is the basis for Christianity and what I believe. That is where I derive my purpose. God is alive and working, and He has proven Himself multiple times to me personally. I looked for Him and found Him, and now I would die for Him.

    Oh boy the thread for me. I haven't typed this anywhere before but a very close long-time friend killed herself a few days ago and I never got a chance to tell her that I loved her. I mean I'm sure she knew, but still. We'd been really tight since like my freshman year of highschool, over the years we talked a lil less because she got mixed up with some abusive assholes who didn't let her have platonic male friends. When she finally broke free she moved in with her dad again, and her and i started hanging out semi-frequently, having a really awesome time. It was funny, we spent like 3 years knowing each other only through social media, and when I knew her in high school, she had really short hair, so i got to see it grow out over the years just through her profile pics. Then like a week before I saw her for the first time in years, she cut it all off again lmao. Despite her unthinkably troubling past, she was really consistently happy and borderline giddy all the times I was with her. She was an intrinsically curious and playful person who loved animals and nature. The purest heart and most free spirit I've ever encountered. She hated not living on her own, so I basically offered to give her rides any time she needed any for any reason, cuz I could tell she really wanted to breathe. She really appreciated it and seemed super optimistic about life going forward, like her job prospects and long-term plans. Her and I talked through really unpleasant events in each other's lives, and probably saved each other repeatedly. Whenever she felt tired or sick I let her crash in my bed all the time while I just played zombies or whatever downstairs lmao. I remember less than a week ago, her waking up and asking what I was playing (It was Shangri-La) and I made a mental note to play with her sometime. Saturday I hit her up and was going to ask her to hang out the next day but she was with friends so I was like "i'll be polite and message her when she's home." Well, i never heard from her again. She killed herself in the park in which I spent my childhood, rather unexpectedly, after a few seemingly minor unprecedented psychotic episodes. I've been crying and collapsing on the ground and unable to go to work for days. I'm turning into Nikolai 1.0. It's just so fucking stupid man, she was so level headed. This was out of nowhere. It just goes to show, as Monty said, there are just some things you can't change. A momentary lapse of judgement can cause irreversible change for everyone. There's not much more to say on the matter really, although I still find myself editing this post. Saying my goodbyes to her in 6 hours. Love you Rose. PS Never had much of a family. Had to make do with what I had. Everyone here, + Rose, and others over the years, filled that gap nicely. Blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb. Love u guys <3

    Thank you @andydabeast, but I would like to make clear that there is not such thing as a good Christian or a not good Christian. I mean, in your eyes there is and you surely can think and believe whatever you want, and maybe it is the truth what you believe, but that does not make Christians that believe and act a bit different immediately a bad Christian. He/she has just as much right to believe what he/she wants as you. In their eyes, you might be a not good Christian, but that does not make you a not good Christian either, does it? Sorry, I had to say that. Now here are my questions: 1) Someone who does not believe in God yet is a nice person who never killed someone or committed a crime, goes to Hell. A murderer who really believes in God and acknowledges that Jesus is his son, will go to Heaven. Isn't that a bit hypocrite? If I recall correctly, Jesus sacrificed himself to purify the sins of humanity. Humans stealers, murdered and destroyed. Yet God forgave them and his son sacrificed himself. If someone has murdered, yet confesses and believes in the Messiah, he will still go to Hell, even while his kind of sins (murder) were the cause of Christ's sacrifice. A normal person who has not killed someone will go to Hell if he does not believe in God and Jesus, even while he has not sinned. He has killed no one. If there would be only good people like him on Earth, God did not even needed to sacrifice his son. And yet he goes to Hell, while the murderer, the cause of Christ's crusifixion, can go to Heaven. Don't you think that's odd? 2) @NaBrZHunter, this question is for you. You are such a devoted Christian, yet you always make such sciencific topics. The nature of the Aether. Plasma wonder weapons. It's all physics and chemistry combined. Even in the comment you just posted you a talking about "the laws of physics". It's funny, I always (perhaps unfairly) connect religion to the disbelieve in science. So, my question is, do you and @andydabeast and @FatedTitan believe in science? And in the big bang and Darwin's evolution theory? Has God created the laws of science along with Earth and the universe perhaps? Maybe God created things like gravity, mutations and survival of the fittest? I mean, like @DaveLo07 said: What caused the Big Bang? Maybe it was indeed God... 3) You've talked about the Devil. Do you believe he exists too? I self (like I said in the OP) am partly Christian: I believe that God exists in the form of love (remember: love has a very wide meaning: forgiveness, friendship, affection, true love, etc), but not in the form of a supreme entity and a Creator. Therefore, I do not believe in the Devil. Evil humans are just filled with bad emotions and have no God a.k.a. love. If the answer is yes, I would also like to know how the Devil has influence on Earth. What he does and causes. 4) Has God, besides after your death and before your birth, influence on you? Like that he can make you feel happy or sad or some sort. Can he manipulate the mind and feelings of a human being? 5) Have any of you ever had the feeling that you are directly connected with God? "A moment of enlightenment" or however you call it? 6) From Christians here I've heard that humans are basically borrowing Earth of God (forgot the name for that) and that it has to keep it in good shape. How do you feel about the direction Earth is going right now. The destruction of forests, coral reefs and the pollution of the air, sea and soil. What should we do? Should mankind act for ttheir selvesand is it our own fault if Earth becomes inhabitable? Or should we trust in God? 7) When you turns ill, is it God's will? Do you use medicines and drugs to get better or do you trust in God? 8) The last one is a very direct and simple one: Do you believe in extraterrestrials? Thanks in advance. I'm sorry if I have asked a few things the wrong way. It's all curiousity that comes from my side, nothing more. Although I disagree with you some times, I respect your opinion about religion, and after all, we are now talking about YOUR religion. But these things I just wanted to know

    I'm not Andy, but I'm willing to answer for you. He seems to fall in line with traditional line of Christian thought, so I'm sure my answers won't differ from his. 1. Murder is a sin. If someone kills a person, they have sinned. But murder isn't an unforgiveable sin. A person can still be forgiven if they repent and believe in Jesus. It's not about having a knowledge of who God is. Heck, demons believe in God. It's about repentance and belief. If someone has killed a person and repents, then yes, they can go to Heaven. 2. Many say that the Bible is just a book of moral teachings, which is does have many of those, but that's not the purpose of the Bible. The purpose is to tell us about who God is. How He created us in perfection, but we sinned, causing a separation between us and Him. But because He loved us so much, He sent His Son Jesus to live a perfect life, die on the Cross and pay the penalty for our sin, then be raised to life. The Bible teaches us that we are dead in our sins (Ephesians 2:1). Dead things don't do anything. They just lie there dead. It takes a miracle to bring that dead thing to life and that is what Jesus did for us. Now why do I say that? Because our works aren't what justify us. Our greatest works are like filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6) to God. There's nothing we can do to justify ourselves, only God can save us from our sins. So it's not about how good of a person you are, it's about if you have repented and believed in Jesus. Now that's not to say Christians can live like Hell because they've got a 'Get out of Hell free' card. In fact, Paul writes in Romans 6 "Are we to continue to sin that grace may abound? By no means!" We should seek to live good lives, but our 'good works' are the fruit of our salvation, not the root of it. So good works aren't enough to get you into Heaven. They never have been and never will be. In fact, the Bible basically says we're all bad and can only be made good by our Savior. We like to believe we aren't that bad, but the reality is we are. We're a rebellious people against a loving God. It's not a matter of how much you sin, it's the gravity of the One you have sinned against. 3. Jesus isn't just a prophet. It's always been strange to me how people, including most Muslims I meet, will tell me that Jesus was a good guy and had a lot of great teachings, but He wasn't the Messiah. Well He claimed to be God fairly explicitly. If He did that, we're left with three options: (1) He's a liar, so he's not that good, (2) He's crazy, so definitely not someone worth listening to, or (3) He's telling the truth about Himself. And if He's telling the truth about Himself, we have to submit to that truth or face the punishment spoken of. Once again, it's not a matter of if they believe Jesus was a prophet or not or even that He really existed. The demons believe that Jesus is the Son of God and they aren't redeemed. It comes down to repenting of your sin and placing your trust in Him. Muslims have not done that. So no, they would not go to Heaven. 4. I'd side with the latter rather than the former. We see from the beginning in Genesis that God made man and woman in His image, something very distinct from the rest of creation. While plants and animals, heck even rocks, can and do give glory to God, not in the same way that humans do. We are different. And that's a good thing! It shows how much God loves and cares about us. That doesn't mean He doesn't care about the animals or the environment. He does. We see in Matthew 10:29, "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father's care." But check this out, in verse 31 Jesus goes on to say this, "So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." While God does care for animals and plants, He cares for us so much more. We're different than them. We have dominion over them. That doesn't mean we should exploit our environment or the animals around us, but we should take care of it and do good to it. We are called to do that. 5. Yes, from Genesis 1:1, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." This is probably the most offensive verse in Scripture honestly, but it tells us exactly how things began. God created the heavens, not referencing the location "Heaven", but the heavenly bodies, i.e. space, and the earth that we know and love. God is the originator of it all. I hope that helped. Got pinged to this thread by @NaBrZHunter so wanted to check it out. Glad to see some interest in this topic.

    Do you believe in God? Yes. Although I come across as very agnostic, I believe in a higher power (was born Roman Catholic, then turned to Christianity and stepped away for a while). While I'm uncertain who is in power or if any of the miracles of a Jesus Christ are 100% believable, I personally agree with a good chunk of it. I don't exactly follow a God creating Earth or any other extraterrestrial object in the universe, but I do believe abstract concepts (emotions, free will, etc) are something that originated from God. And the coming of Jesus Christ and his tales? 50% plausible, but without a doubt was a real person. A good person will do good. The idea of a sin, in my eyes, is a scare tactic for society to keep itself in check. Because nothing is more powerful as an influencing agent that fear. And if you fear the consequence of being a sinner (i.e. going to hell and burning for all of time), chances are you're going to wanna sin less than usual and be mindful of what others are doing. At the same time, every religion follows the Golden Rule - do good unto others as you would have to yourself. Shouldn't be hard to be a decent human being, even if people are different than you in several ways. But hey - if someone puts their entire lives and faith into any God and religion itself, and it makes that person happy BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY does not infringe on the sanctity and well-being of others, then I'd all for it. I've met devout, good followers of faith like our men @NaBrZHunter and @FatedTitan that have never outed or pushed beliefs onto others. Do you believe in an Afterlife? I believe in something, but unsure what. As I get older, I begin to question the possibility of just nothingness. Many don't like the idea of just disappearing, but it's definitely on the table. I am a firm believer of reincarnation on a slight degree - which means our souls live infinitely but in the bodies of others. When we arrive at certain scenarios that we've come across before, we experience deja vu. I used to believe that it was because of a dream I had years back, but it's becoming more common the older I get. Maybe I'm just delusional. Do you believe in ghosts? Absolutely. Personally have seen a few in my lifetime, including supernatural experiences that have scarred me to this day. But it's not your ordinary "woOOOoooOOOooo I died and have nowhere else to go so I'm gonna haunt this bathroom forever" kind of experience. Like I was saying before, I don't have a direction towards an Afterlife; however, I believe in a middle-ground realm, where souls who refuse to disappear linger. I can't explain it - not a purgatory but not limbo either. It could be forces of darkness at work, or really anything. Hallucinations that allow you to see beyond the realm of the living, but we take it as fake visions. Whatever they are, there are definitely spirits within our midst.

    I just played Virruckt with two friends last night and with no pap or wonder weapons and not relying on GG too heavy we only got to wave 19. It was quite refreshing to play a map designed for what is now considered "low rounds". As for my thoughts on the trailer, Visuals- Holy cheesbergers it looks awesome! Textures seem to be a huge improvement that makes a massive difference. As a PC player I look forward to maxing out the visual settings. Setting- Fantastic! German expedition to uncover an ancient relic and the human experimentation gone wrong thing is great. Dark tunnels and laboratories YES. Gameplay- not a whole lot to go on here, but I am a little sad to see the mystery box return. It is literally the ONLY mechanic in Treyarch zombies that has never been altered. I hope ammo is limited and they do something different than wall weapons. Maybe each new area you enter there is a random gun on a dead body you can choose to pick up, but no ammo buying? Zombies- I am so glad the eyes don't glow. and it looks like there are more different types which is good. I am really hoping it is not just treyarch zombies with a new setting and new visuals. They need to change the formula.

    Here we go again I think... I was so determined that after BO3 zombies I'm done with this franchise but but... WW2 trailer got me all hyped up again. Not gonna pre-order or anything though, just gonna wait and see how's it gonna be like. I really like the more horror themed approach they have at least in the trailer. I really hope they don't go the Treyarch way and make the game too easy with Gobblegums and double pack-a-punch kind of things. The reason why I liked zombies in the first place was the build up and the actual tense feeling when the rounds got up and weapons started to be useless and ammo was going low. Really hoping they go for something like that.

    You drove them deep into the heart of the Reich. You thought they were dead. You were wrong. Intel Call of Duty: World at War Nacht Der Untoten ~ November 11, 2008 Call of Duty: World at War completely changes the rules of engagement by redefining WWII gaming and thrusting players into the final tension-filled, unforgiving battles against a new ferocious enemy in the most dangerous and suspenseful action ever seen in WWII. Powered by Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare technology, Call of Duty: World at War brings an uncensored edge to combat, as soldiers face the most harrowing and climatic European and Pacific battles in which an enemy, who knows no surrender and no retreat, will fight to the last breath, unleashing an arsenal of lethal surprising tactics. Peril and danger lurk throughout the battlefield as players combat the unknown risk of the new chaos of battle. From the remains of Russia and the ruins of Berlin, to the beach and jungles of the deadly Pacific Theater, the volatile action takes on added depth as players employ new features that previously were only-available in multiplayer, including perks, rankings and online stats in up-to full four-player cooperative gameplay. New infantry and vehicle-based weapons, like the potent flamethrower, bring the battlefield ablaze ================================= Mysterious Radio Transmissions Confidential Information / Security Level 5 Consider yourself lucky troops, because we're about to let you in on a little secret. Soldiers from the darkest reaches of our offensive are finding themselves facing the army of the damned, but that's not all they're discovering. Underneath this evil, we're guessing there is a Nazi spider web that connects all of these outbreaks and that out there, there are clues that can expose its gossamer threads. We are gathering reports of strange sightings and happenings, besides the undead rising from their graves that is, which seem to be creating trends within the field. What we're presenting to you today is one of these trends. Ever since the second outbreak at Nacht der Untoten, troops have been noticing strange radio transmissions and broadcasts taking place in the dead of the night. Back at HQ, we are hoping these rumors can help you soldiers come closer to unraveling the truth. Some of our men who've braved through the woods of Nacht der Untoten have dug up intel, which we found earlier to be irrelevant, but under recent circumstances, we now deem it vital to our growing case file. Our contacts say that there is a hidden radio, that for all rational reasons should not operate, but does. Those who've managed to activate the radio say that it plays an endless cycle of haunting songs and some of our Soviet allies have reported hearing their homeland's victory song through its cursed speakers. Of course, these phantom transmissions do not end in Nacht der Untoten. Shi No Numa holds its own fair share of mysteries. Within the walls of Shi No Numa, some have reported hearing not music, but radio calls from a rogue signal. We haven’t been able to get an accurate report on what is said within this radio call, but we are sure it is connected to this conspiracy. We can't be sure, but we are thinking that hidden transmissions can be found in the recently discovered Der Riese as well. That’s why we’re sharing this information with you troops. We need you to head out into the field and discover what we can't. You'll need to be smart and you'll need teamwork to survive, but if you can get past the hordes of the flesh-eating undead, you may find the truth behind the horror. Within the supplies section of the Call of Duty HQ, you'll find the only known transmissions we have. End of transmission. http://i856.photobucket.com/albums/ab125/callofdutyzombieslibrary/World%20at%20War/Nacht%20Der%20Untoten/NachtDerUntotenPoster_zps3482f36c.jpg[/IMG]

    Welcome, one and all, to the 2017 Call of Duty Zombies 2nd Annual tournament, the "Zombies Olympics"! The Z-Olympics (as we just normally call it around here) is an annual event where slayers from all regions of the world come to compete online in extremely difficult yet innovative challenges set forth by the Overlords and Controllers of the multiverse to determine who among them will earn the title of Champion against the others. The official tournament lasts for 3 weeks, and will test all your slaying abilities throughout several Zombies maps. Oh, did we mention there is a grand prize for each Champion? How to Enter The Z-Olympics contains two competition pools - the Champion and the Slayer pool. The Champion pool consists solely of past Champions from the Ancient Trials tournament and potentially a few wild cards. These players have earned their spot through 6-7 months of antagonizing torture from the Overlords with very specific challenges, allowing them to enter the highest ranks possible for a larger prize. 3 of the most difficult challenges possible will determine the winner. The Slayer pool is available to all of the public, and requires no barrier to entry other than the ability to record gameplay. Players will compete against everyone for the best score in each challenge using our previous scoring system in the Ancient Trials tournaments. Unlike the Champion pool, there is no contestant limit, so it's a free-for-all kind of madness. Like the Champion pool, however, 3 challenges will determine the winner. Each league will have 2 weeks per challenge, making the entire Zombies Olympics a 6-week tournament. A challenge will start bi-weekly on a Sunday and end on a Saturday at 11:59pm PST. Game Requirements In order to successfully compete in the Z-Olympics, players must have each of the following items: Xbox One / Playstation 4 / PC Black Ops 3 - all DLCs including Zombies Chronicles Gameplay recording equipment (such as an Elgato, capture device, Twitch stream recording, Game DVR, etc) Twitch or YouTube account to upload gameplay videos on At least 1-2 hours of free time in a given week to perform each challenge A working email to contact players by for results, important updates, and more Failure to have any of these items will result in scores not being counted in the tournament. The Point System For those unfamiliar with the Ancient Trials, we used a direct approach to scoring each players using ranking points. The first place score would receive a score of 4 points, second highest 3 points, third highest 2 points, etc etc. In the Slayer pool, the points will instead range up to a maximum of 5. It is highly possible to receive a score of 0 if a player fails to be in the Top 5 of a given challenge. In the Champion pool, the maximum points given will be 3 per challenge since the number of players is significantly smaller. At the end of each challenge, our Z-Olympics committee will determine who has what rank at each segment of the tournament and post it on this site. Each contestant who signs up for the tournament will also receive an email blast from us highlighting the scores, just in case we have slayers constantly on the move. Prizes and Rewards You don't spend time, effort, blood, sweat, tears, and possibly urine (yes, we have a hilarious story about that) for nothing. The Zombies Olympics offers not one, but several prizes for each league! $75 for the Winner of the Champion Pool + Custom "Zombies Olympics 2017 Champion" Button + 5 Zombies Movie Posters $50 for the Winner of the Slayer Pool + Custom "Zombies Olympics 2017 Champion" Button + 3 Zombies Movie Posters Rules and Guidelines Each tournament and challenge we offer contains special rules that must be abided by. Failure to comply with the rules will determine in your score being voided and possible permanent banning from the Z-Olympics all-together. We don't have many rules (because we have a lot of faith in our players), but please carefully read the following guidelines: Each player must show the leaderboard pop-up screen at the beginning of each challenge. This is an important verification step. Failure to do so will result in your submission not being recorded. The username you provide on the Registration link should match exactly to that of the name on the Leaderboard. Only 1 submission video per challenge is allowed. We do not accept duplicates, regardless if the score changes. Cheating in the form of performing glitches is prohibited in all challenges. The use of non-Classic Gobblegums is not allowed unless specified otherwise. All video segments must one continuous length. This means no split-recordings are allowed. Your gameplay cannot be substituted by another player. Pausing in your video is allowed, but must remain in a continuous recording. Challenges As previously mentioned, each league will have 3 difficult challenges to complete. The order of the challenges will not be specified; however, are available to the public to practice. For Champion Pool: Shadows of Evil: 3-2-1 Challenge (3 Perks, 2 Weapons, 1 Box Hit) Nacht der Untoten: Wall Weapons Challenge (Only wall weapons, grenades, starting pistol, and knife can be used as weapons) Gorod Krovi: Bare Hands Challenge (No Buildables, No Perks, No EE Weapons aside Box weapons) For Slayer Pool: Shangri-la: Powerless Blitzkrieg (No power, highest round) Origins: Limited (Can only use starting room weapons and pistol entire game, PaP allowed for them) Revelations: The End (Nacht cannot be accessed whatsoever, EE not allowed, Time Trial weapons not allowed) Registration Information Registration will posted on Monday September 4th, 2017 and will run for approximately 1 week.

    20 days from now and me and the missus will be off to Spain for 2 weeks of (hopefully) sunshine. Getting away from the wet Scottish weather couldn't sound better lmao. So yes, we will be away for 2 weeks spending our time in a place called Majorca. We head out on the 26th of this month so only 20 days from now and I'm pretty excited. This year has been one of the worst for me and just to get away and chill out for a couple of weeks might do me the world of good. I am hoping to be taking my Playstation with me as trying to pull me away from Zombies is almost impossible so I will hopefully still be able to play and get on. Is anyone else going away on Holiday anytime soon? Let us know! :D

    Doing a practice run this morning, I had a thought if we get a gun out of a pod no matter the color and we pick it up does that count towards our 2 wall weapons or mystery box weapon?

    This is just my opinion, but if you are playing for the prize, I think you are playing for the wrong reason. Looking at the other players in the Champion pool and how they performed in the Ancient Trials I KNOW that I am far out-classed by some of these guys. I KNOW I won't win but it is the pure fun of competing that keeps me here. Play for the fun of it and if you win something, treat that as an unexpected bonus :-) That is what I do!

    Each challenge will be created in such a way that "hours" won't be possible. When we held the Ancient Trials for the Champion pool, a good chunk of the challenges were increasingly difficult. For the Olympics, they will perform the same way. We are estimating about 1.25 hours on average for each challenge, where there will be harsh limitations and limited areas to be in.

    I never really noticed the light effect, at least not in any capacity that would warrant suspicion or extended interest. The Electro Trap is beautiful, but it's a pain in the ass. The reason you don't see most people using it is because it requires a Turbine to power it, making it very clumsy and troublesome to operate, often requiring the assistance of another with a Turbine. The Trap will actually kill zombies almost instantly up to about round 40-50, a sustained power source being the only catch. Back in the day my brother and I would use them to block doorways in order to camp for a minute. We put it in the Bookstore Doorway in the Town area, back by the Olympia. I miss those days, when things like that still had novelty. ^_^ I find most of the Blops 2 gadgets go unused. The Springboard in Buried was one of my favorite. Everyone found it to be useless, but I wouldn't give up on it, lol. Most people are aware of the camp spot in the Saloon. You can go upstairs, and there's this on L-shaped hallway with a dead end, but a hole in the wall where you can drop down back onto the main floor. Well I got this idea... lol. What if we set up the Springboard precisely where we'd land when dropping out of the wall, and in return, it would launch us clear of any zombies crowding the main bar floor. It worked fairly well, wasn't fail proof, but it made that spot a lot more secure, and fun, lol.

    I've never played with a mic and honestly, never felt like I needed one. Though, I understand how you feel. Maybe playing Farm helps! From my experience, players in Farm are mostly more experienced than those in Town. The disadvantage is no PaP, no Tombstone and no Stamin-up

    Thank you. I have thought about this many times too. There are other variables I'd want to include in the recorded data. number of players, kills/headshots at first contact, points on first contact, heck, I'd even want weapon info, wall purchases per player, ammo in pistol and other guns, all at times of first contact. Perks bought, doors open, lol. I have strayed away from wall guns in the later years. I find them to be a waste with the way I play. On Co-op I'm thinking they may be a better option, but when playing solo I get my gun set within 5 hits, every time. I rarely jump the box in a session unless I'm looking for Monkies. I definitely hit the box first. I focus on getting one piece of reliable hardware. For me that's Galil, H4M3R, Mtar, or RPD. Everything else is garbage. Once I have that 1 piece of hardware, I forget about the Box. I have perks to get, Tombstone to buy, and then I'm Packing that gun. Now I'm ready to go, just have fish for a secondary weapon when it's rational to do so (and I have stockpiles of points from camping with a Packed weapon). Yeah, it's not what it used to be. I enjoy Trazit, so much, but it's near impossible to start a good round. People are porting at the bus stop or leaving the diner before the box is jumped. No one is thinking straight anymore, lol.

    This may sound cynical but when playing with randoms I have kind of given up on trying to force teamwork. It requires too much effort for it to usually fall upon deaf ears. Usually my online randoms games go like this- Wave 1-5 I and someone else who knows what they are doing get most of the kills, open doors, get guns. The other two are noobs and one goes down. By wave 10 the good player and I have perks and maybe a papped gun and we have tried to help the two noobs find jugg and a good wall weapon but they may just suck too bad. By wave 20 the two noobs have downed so many times they have just quit and the good player and I finish it out and friend each other. I had a guy once on the Giant not know how to play. like at all. He didn't know how to buy a wall weapon and had been running around with an empty pistol for a couple rounds.

That fear of the unknown. That's where you can really get people." "Were building this story that's based on characters." - @CameronDayton on the approach to the new co-operative mode "They deployed small units looking for stolen art. They find much more than that, however..." - Jon Horsley on characters as part of MFAA "You had a political divide in a family...

"We maintain a Mystery Box and Wonder Weapons." "The universes are separate and they don't intersect." - @MichaelCondrey on #WWIIZombies and AW Zombies New in depth information about wall buys and other things Round based confirmed - IGN interview and JD Game informer mag new info -Zombies mode takes place towards the end of WWII, when Nazi Germany was in a desperate situation. -Zombies features a new “dynamic approach.” One example of this is where players are forced to kill Zombies in a constantly moving radius to create an electrical charge to unlock the next area. -The Zombies are created by man, Dr. Straub. Straub’s Zombies are centered around the nervous system. The Zombies are created by bolts and other items that you see stuck in them. Their backbone is the energy which charges their nervous system. The Zombies are actually being tortured. -Lot of this story is based on actual events that were happening during WWII. -There are different classes and types of Zombies. Not all have every body part you may expect. Pests class do not have any arms, rather they are assembled from spare parts. The Bomber class of Zombies are stitched up from parts. -Zombies features customizable loadouts, but also permanent-unlocks that work like perks. GameInformer directly compares this to gobblegums, but these are permanent, not temporary uses like gobblegums. -There are 4 classes: Offense, Control, Support, and Medic. -Boarding up windows and collecting currency is back in this mode. -There are both wave based rounds and location/event based encounters -Players can earn some “special abilities” in Zombies mode. Activated by pressing R1 and L1. An example is Unlimited Ammo. -Tesla weaponry unlock able by gaining additional power by killing zombies in a specific area. -Super bosses are back in Zombies. -Easter Eggs are extremely difficult in this game. I will add more. Thoughts, opinions?

    I was doing a challenge for the Ancient Trials and accidentally discovered a really nice strat that would also work with more people. I got to wave 18 with no jugg and not really trying too hard. No GG needed. Strategy: 1. Get the turned re-pack on the L-car9 2. Camp at the bridge. 3. Try and always have the turned zombie at the upper end (more zombies) 4. Use the turned zombie to kill flamers Pros: -pretty easy once you have turned. -ammo near by -GG near by -with more people and more turned this could be an amazing strategy -turned zombie kills flamers and screamers in one hit Cons: -L-car9 will get weak after wave 20 I suspect. only use it for turned. You will need a good secondary. -relies on luck for the repack. I got it first try on wave 9 -you don't get many points because the turned is doing most of the work. There were multiple times when I had the flame left over from a flamer on one side of the bridge and my turned at the other. I imagine even with just two players having one turned on each side of the bridge this would be high rounds easy. Add in GG and jugg (I didn't use jugg) and a deadwire secondary and bam, high rounds. I'll record it if I try this with more people

    Seems like @FatedTitan and I have extremely similar faiths I am fine with discussing here. Maybe others have similar questions. I do like explaining my faith to people with questions because it seems like there are a lot of people claiming to be Christians in this world while contradicting Jesus and the Bible. Nobody is perfect, but from facebook conversations it seems too common for a non-Christian's view of Christianity to be skewed and mis-communicated by one incident involving somebody not being a very good Christian.

    @DaveLo07 I have nothing to say to that. What an answer....but you are breaking my mind as well. @Steelie I definitely agree with you on that last part. In these modern times, we have discovered less than 5 percent of our oceans. Surely there is something extraordinary down there... I'm almost 100 percent sure that extraterrestrial life exists. I mean, look at the size of the cosmos. Like Monty said: It would be nearly impossible if Earth is the only planet having life. I mean, even some scientists have discovered planets being just as far of the sun as Earth, and having H2O on it. There's gotta be life on such places. The thing is, like you said, we will never get there. And aliens will never get to Earth. The distances are just too far. It is highly possible that there are more advanced civilizations than humans in the universe, yet even they have not succeed in visiting Earth (and no, I do not believe in alien cornfield circles and that kind of stuff). They would, indeed, limit their selves a to see our past, possibly the dinosaurs :P. However there might be other life forms closer in the universe, simply missing the intelligence to built devices to visit Earth, and I hope one day mankind discovers such creatures. Even a single bacteria would be good to me. Thinking about living extraterrestrials, every living thing will die one day, and so do they. Would that connect them with our afterlife (if we have one)? Our would our afterlife limit itself to humans/Earth? Odd to think about it. Y'all ghost stories scare me man! The story of the knife seems a bit too absurd, but that what happened with you MP3 and such....you almost make me a believer too. Happily (or sadly perhaps), I do not have some kind of sixth sense, although I do have the feeling that someone is watching sometimes. It's weird now I think about it, that one can FEEL others' eyes burning in your back if someone's watching you. I do have that ability: And basically always when I have that feeling, someone is really watching me while I did not noticed him/her. But very sometimes when I have that feeling, I can see no one... Maybe ghosts just think I'm a boring girl and leave me alone :P. I wonder, how do you feel their presence. Like they are really on that location for you specific, or are they just wandering around randomly. If that latter is the case, perhaps it are some kind of reflections of the past. One late man's energy that's still present. Fascinating talking

    If I may give my vision on this: Of course please note that this is MY opinion and trains of thought, and I don't mean to bash or offend people or get into heavy discussions. I just want to present another viewpoint! I was raised in Protestantism, and later on I started doubting religion and we kinda stopped going to church (also because my parents were in a divorce, my dad still goes to church every sunday but I've always lived with my mother, so yeah). To me religions are just... stories that got passed on and blown out of proportion. People love exaggerating stories, always have. If one person back then could swim, then a few decades later he'd have been walking on water. Get what I mean? I don't mean to bash on religion at all, though. I think it's a good thing for people who need it, as long as they aren't too radical, you feel? I don't believe that any god would want the beings they created to suffer. I do believe angels and demons exist, though. I just don't see them as really religious or from a religious viewpoint, but more as beings that kept everything in some kind of balance. And while I do think that demons are more "bad" and angels are more "good", I don't believe for a second that angels are all that pure and innocent, and that demons are all evil and merciless. I think both of them have good, as well as bad traits. As for ghosts, I'm certain they exist. At times I could swear that there is someone standing behind me to my left, and when I turn around there's nothing there. This has even happened when it would be physically impossible for someone to stand behind me, as they'd be standing in a wall in that case. There has also been once when I was in bed listening to music and suddenly I spotted ?? something out of the corner of my eyes, and it jsut flew over me. After that the volume of my mp3 player started acting really weird, getting louder and softer without me doing anything, and I was terrified. I have also known and been friends with several persons who could see ghosts, and one of them has even been attacked by one and was stabbed in her back. Luckily not anything physical, but according to her it might as well have been because it sure as hell felt like it was an actual knife. So yes, I do most certainly believe in ghosts. On my view of the afterlife or what happens to you when you die, I don't have a single clue. Of course there's the Tunnel theory and all, and I think it does hold some truth. I mean so many people have seen it, been through it. There must be some truth hidden in there. But I'm also skeptical. The human mind is extremely powerful, and can let us see, hear and feel things that are not there. I mean the presence I felt behind me might have been my mind playing tricks on me, I don't know that. But in the end I believe what I'll see my loved ones again who died before me and that we'll all be in another world, in a good world. I also think that when you die, truly die, that you'll get to know everything you ever questioned, from philosophical and existential stuff to "how big is the universe" and "Is my dog gonna be okay". Writing it down like this kinda makes me think again, to be honest. Am I believing in fairy tales? Again, no clue. But if I'd have to make a guess that'd be my guess. But until then, I guess I'll cross the bridge of afterlife and death when I get to it (haha yes sorry terrible pun). I also believe that there are other supernatural creatures out there and/or deities that we don't know about. I don't know what is out there exactly (and I almost don't dare to guess), but especially in our oceans there must be something, we've discovered so little. I also believe there's life outside our solar system and all, but they probably can't travel to us or are so far away that they still see the dinosaurs walking around on our planet. Or they aren't interested, or they're in another space pocket and can't interact with us in any way. I have no idea. But we can't be the only ones.

    So, this is a post that I've been contemplating creating for a long time now. Around the time of this post, to be a bit more exact. It's not exactly something related to my issues that I mentioned in the post, though I know that it's connected in a... particular sort of way, I guess. So... to get to the point... for a long time now, I've considered myself to be an introvert. I've seen myself to be, in a way, antisocial and shy, sometimes finding social interaction difficult. Of course, in knowing this and admitting it before, I have become better, but... you live a way for so long, it's hard to change like that. I think a part of me had known this for a long time now. I would go as far to say that plenty of family members of mine probably know of my introversion as well, and are the most helpful when it comes to helping me break through to a more social path... that being said, family's different since you live with 'em, and cousins and stuff are visited a lot over the course of life, but the concept's the same. Anyways... yeah. It probably isn't the newest thing for me or anyone who knows me like this. Personally, I never saw my tendencies as a large issue... I mean, they were kind of an issue, but not exceedingly large. A lot of my introversion stems deeply to having Asperger's Syndrome... speaking of, GOD do I hate the new classification under "Autism Spectrum Disorder". Asperger's, innately, gives me trouble in social scenarios, and... well, as I've learned just now, makes me susceptible to having rather absorptive hobbies/interests (tells you how much I read up on things regarding me that are as important as that), which really does explain a bit on that end. A very behavioral thing, definitely... and it's certainly affected me in life. I've got what I'd like to think is a small circle of real life friends, perhaps smaller in regards to online friends both on Xbox and over Skype and CoDz. I don't go out of my way to talk to every single person I've got on my friends list over Xbox every day, I don't go out of my way to talk to someone I don't directly talk to as a friend unless it becomes necessary to do so, nor do I often use my phone to text a lot or send selfies or what-not (I don't get why people are so absorbed in phones in this generation, and I'm a part of it...) I honestly don't use my phone much at all, really just for music. I have what I'd like to call a very absorbed hobby in the way of video games... which does help, considering game design is something I plan to major in college, which is coming up soon. The same can be said for music, shows like RWBY, and other things. Given with all this, I've grown to stick around my bedroom more than I should admit, playing my Xbox, normally coming out to help out my mother with household things, meals, bathroom, and so on. Now with the inclusion of my new laptop (Windows 10, kinda love it so far), I'm back to sitting on this as well, typing away posts like this, watching a lot of YouTube (believe me, I do that on my Xbox too), and writing things, mostly regarding areas of The Unity Series, as... well, I am dedicated. ...well, I sound like a hermit now, don't I. I've heard the term used before, so I understand it. Frankly... it's pretty much true. I'm not much more than a hermit. I don't particularly like that, yes, but... not exactly the easiest thing to help. I'm hardwired to be this shy, somewhat-antisocial introvert. I was hardwired back at the beginning of high school, and I know that it certainly was a part of my depression, since I had these issues arise and all I chose was to let myself be alone and not seek some respite of help in a time where I needed it. I let what had become a darkening cloud with a spreading shadow enclose itself around my mind, simply because a part of me wouldn't let me seek escape unless it confronted me directly. Which... it did. Thankfully. I did change a bit since then, though. I've grown a lot from what happened, and I consider myself to actually be plenty more social than I used to be. Same small group of friends on most areas I've mentioned, but I'm finding it easier to socialize now. I'm finding it easier now to be more open, and say things I need to say. I haven't broken my introverted shell, but I'd say I've definitely done enough to remold it. So... quite frankly, what's to take from this? Why talk about this if I've done better with it? Well, for one, it still affects me today, but also to sort of voice how a mind works in a position like my own, and perhaps help anyone else who may see themselves in a sort of way that presents itself as introversion. Quite frankly, I think a lot of people with antisocial or introverted tendencies kind of make this glass castle around themselves. It's comforting to stay inside it, but there's a mirror you find within it that only reflects the world outside its boundaries. This reflection itself produces somewhat of an innate fear. One likes to stay to themselves. They don't particularly want to leave the castle's protection. That's kind of the problem, though. The castle isn't safe and it isn't protective, it's only glass, and... unfortunately, in some cases, those who would throw pebbles begin to throw rocks, and the castle falls, until all you are left with is the mirror, still reflecting the world... though, now, you can see a silhouette, and it comes forward to reveal itself... and it's you. ... The point I'm trying to make here is that, if you're antisocial or believe you're an introvert, it's better to open yourself up and try to grow more out. While it won't always work out and you may find yourself in a bad place, what matters is that you're trying. You're trying to be a more open, accepting, and overall more social person than before. It's a good thing, really. Social interaction not only drives the world, but humans have an innate need to have it in their lives. Even antisocial people, even introverts. You need to make the effort to seek interaction and break through into a position where being social isn't as much an issue as it was before. If that makes sense... Look at life more like a mirror, y'know? I mean, it reflects you rather well, that's good and understandable, but it also reflects the rest of the world around you, and it is important to recognize that for what it is. ...whoo, I've dragged this post out... anyways. I would hope people see this for what it is. I've honestly had a harder time than I can admit to in trying to word this the right way. I've had to consistently think on the way I've grown to see this, and how I've seen myself over time. I wanted to cover this and I didn't want to mess it up. Honestly, I'm not exactly sure the analogies are 100% as perfect as I could have made them. Not that any post should ever strive to be 100% perfect... it's better to be as honest as you can be with what you've got to say. But... still. Tough post to do... If you guys have much to share on the topic, share if you'd prefer. I wouldn't wish to force you to speak on something you wouldn't want to, though, if you wish to, it is welcomed. Anyways, I hope you liked the post, and... well... per aspera ad astra? -The Meh

    I'm glad you've made this topic and the glass castle analogy really resonated with me. I've been an extreme introvert my whole life. Last year I took the Myers-Briggs Personality Test for something school related (Yes I know it isn't really considered a totally reliable test in the scientific community) and I got a 30 on the Introversion/Extroversion scale towards Introversion, meaning every single question regarding the topic I leaned towards Introversion. While I haven't officially been diagnosed I do believe I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder or something similar. The amount of friends I've had has always been a number I can count on one hand because I have never had the courage or know-how to approach someone or start a conversation. The only friends I've had talked to me first or were introduced to me through known friends. I find it hard to relate to most people also, so a good portion of people I meet I end up not really meshing well with and I don't want to talk to them much anymore, even when the problem is with me, not them. Because of that, the friends I do have that I love I grow really really attached to, almost to a fault. Even if one were to treat me badly I don't know that I'd ever want to end the friendship. But I've grown better about speaking my mind over the years and have learned who my real friends are, or at least I like to think I know. My whole life I've tried to strike this balance between time I spend being social and time I spend by myself. If I spend too much time around people with not enough to myself I get really irritable and feel trapped. But spending too much time by myself makes me worry too much about my situation and how sad life can be (A product of GAD). I start to feel like I'm going insane and when I return to socializing I'm known to act strangely for a short time. Because of this delicate balance I tend to have an inconsistent personality. I've tried to get better at it, and have been trying to find some sort of inner peace and block out all the anger I feel. Anger is something I've realized that is toxic and I've realized most situations where I get angry are not that big a deal anyway and have learned to calm myself in the moment. For all the progress I've made I still find it hard to leave the house everyday for work. I dread the conflicts that have arisen between friends of mine and feel like I have to solve them in some way. Time I spend with myself I often get angry with myself for everything that I'm not. I'm not an artist. I haven't been practicing Java for school this Summer like I was supposed to. I'm costing my mother so much money going to college and feel like I don't provide any return. I'm not a good enough friend. I haven't been writing the Storybook much at all, and just mostly think about what I could do instead of doing it. I'm worried I'll never find someone to spend the rest of my life with because of someone I'm attached to that I have no chance being with. I'm not making the people around me happy enough. I can't solve the world's problems. All this has been compounding on me over the Summer, and I miss being at school where I can worry about an upcoming test or an essay because those things are much simpler and much easier to solve. I always feel like I'm doing something productive there. But at home over the Summer I feel like I'm stuck in a box. But I'm holding up well because school is right around the corner, and I've always been a sort of optimist in thinking things will eventually work out. I want to get better about my introversion and anxiety. I just want to be the best person I can be. I've been trying to become more adventurous and spontaneous to keep myself happy and hopefully socialize more. But at the end of the day I will always be an introvert, and unless I get a new brain, I will always have anxiety. I'll just have to learn how to cope with it in this future of mine.

    Already SH games have been really sneaky. The image that they showed earlier on at the reveal of WWII for nazi zombies seems to include a hidden cipher. The letters can be seen just under the zombies helmet on the left side. These have been solved to read as the following. IUFDJ BHLOP JMUBA Official steps on solving the cipher Step 1: Head over to callofduty.com/classified Step 2: You will be taken to a page where you have some sort of type writing machine in front of you. This is where you will input your words. Step 3: Input the word IUFDJ into the machine and then click on the little white switch just to the right of where your letters where inputed. You will notice that the letters will spin and stop on ANEWH. Step 4: Next input the word BHLOP and click on the little white switch again. The words will spin once again to reveal the letters ORROR. Step 5: Finally input your last word JMUBA and click on the white switch. Once the words have stopped spinning you will get your final letters that are RISES. Once you have completed all of those steps your screen will dim down and you will be taken to a page with a document on it. Click the document to open it and you will be greeted with two images. One showing a character named Frederick Barbarossa. Now if we look at all of the letters we where given when we spinner the machine it reads ANEWHORRORRISES This one is pretty easy to tell that if we split it up it clearly says A NEW HORROR RISES. It also gives us a set of coordinates. These are: FORM - YMF - 212514 12123 131 These take us to the Dunkirk Battle. Thats the little quick and easy guide on solving the zombie helmet cipher. I hope you guys can have fun with this and hopefully even find more little clues within this new page!

    I have seen so many people stuck on the soul challenge that requires you to turn zombies 20 times, so I thought I would put these little tips out there on how to complete this challenge faster. How do I turn zombies friendly? There is two ways of doing this. One is by using the coins you can collect around the map to build the trap that turns one zombie friendly and the other way is by using the fortune card that lets you turn 4 zombies per card. How do I build the trap? To build the trap you need to put 3 green coins into one of the machines and you will be given the trap that turns only one zombie friendly. This way is the slowest way as you just need luck when it comes to getting the correct coins. The best way to do it this way is to stay in the general spawn area and don't open up any other areas of the map as this will keep the zombie spawns fast with a higher chance of your coin dropping. Fortune card The turned fortune card is a common one and most people will have a stack of them sitting there. This is by far the best way of getting this challenge out of the way as it lets you turn 4 zombies per use of a card. Go check if you have any of these and stick them on and go and get your challenge complete. Be sure to let 4 different zombies hit you so you actually turn 4 of them and not the same zombie as it won't count. There is a few little tips to help you complete one of the annoying soul challenges that may be stopping you from getting that awesome 100%
