    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.

    Sledgehammer released it’s new game WWII, with of course: a new “Nazi Zombies”, a new multiplayer and a new campaign. I played the first mission of the campaign, taking place in Normandy, during the famous Operation Overlord. The start of the game was basically a copy of Saving Private Ryan and World at War: While the landing boat floats towards the coast, a soldier is shot through his head (WaW). Later, when the door opens, everyone on board is immediately shot dead except the main character (SPR), who falls into the water and is grabbed by the sergeant, who shouts his objective into your face (WaW). I have only played the first few missions, so the story might change later, but from what I’ve seen so far the campaign is pretty like a usual (CoD) game about WW2. The story starts in D-Day, June 1944 and ends a year later, in 1945. The whole game takes place only in (North) Western Europe, and basically at the end of the war, but yet this part of WW2 is highlighted in so many games and movies. And that while D-Day till Berlin happened in less than a year. How much do we see about the Allied invasion of Africa and Italy, starting a year earlier. The wars fought in Greece, the Balkan and Spain. Or about the Soviets who started the fight against the Central-European fascists even two years before: In 1942. The Pacific War is forgotten a bit less, but compared to ‘44-’45 Western Europe it isn’t given that much attention (This is why I like the WaW campaign so much: Soviets and the Pacific). Germany invaded Eastern Europe in 1939, and one year later, in 1940, Western Europe was invaded as well. The war in Europe was already going on 5 years before D-day even started. That’s 5 times as long as the whole “D-Day-Battle of the Bulge-Fall of Nazi-Germany” period that is so extremely popular. Not to mention that Hitler became chancellor in 1933: The start of the suffering for a lot of citizens of Germany. Around the same time the war in the Pacific started. It is said that when the Chinese capital Nanking was taken over by the Japanese, the men and boys were buried alive, the women and girls were raped and killed after it and the river was red of blood. Point I like to make: The Second World War was so much more than only the Western front in 1944-1945. Although I do understand game producers like to show the end of the war, victorious to the allies. Another point I would like to make: Many war games, including WWII, seem to be based on themes like brotherhood, heroes, victory and fight. Like WW2 was only a fair fight between soldiers, who killed each other for the sake of their country or freedom. This is a big mistake. Remember that scene in WaW (how I love that game) in which the Soviets execute German soldiers who surrendered? Such deeds were not only done by the Soviets: This occurred at the Germans, Japanese, and yes, the Western Allies as well. Like Chernov said: That is not war, that is murder. Spoilers alert: I remember private Zussman being knifed on D-Day. The main character brings him to a medic outpost, where he recovers and continues with the war a few weeks later. He was lucky. There were millions of cases like Zussman during the war, and many of them weren’t that lucky. Many of them bleeded out and died, many of them not even adult. And then we are only speaking about soldiers. The Swastika was terrorizing Europe for many years, as well as Japan terrorized East Asia. Both places suffered enormously, starved, froze to death, were raped, murdered, tortured, bombed and burned. The citizens. The ones who did not even participate in the war. Germany migrated tons of men from it’s occupied Western European countries to Germany to work till death in the weapon industry. The Nazi’s executed and burned down complete villages in Eastern Europe, simply to extirpate the Slavic people and make the area Lebensraum (living space) for the Germanic race. It were not only Jews who were sent to work, concentration and death camps, you know. Gypsies, resistance members, socialists, Slavic people and many, many more. Perhaps even more unknown are the Japanese “work” camps. A small difference it had with its German version, was that the killing here did not happen as systematic and “efficient”. The Second Great War had an offical duration of 6 years, 13 years if you count the war in the Pacific with it. It was a total war, having more innocent citizens as victims than soldiers. And I am sure the people on this forum know about this all, but this is a reminder that the war took way longer, was way less “victorious” and even more gruesome than you see in WWII. A game in which, like many other, the player is playing in the period of the end of the war, set with a single goal: Kill all krauts and fight your way to Berlin. So anyway, however I know all this, I too enjoy the digital online killing, and continue with it. We all should. This post is not meant as complain, but as a reminder. A reminder that we should respect and fear what happened, so long ago, honour the fallen ones and enjoy our free lives we live thanks to them, and be happy that such event never has happened again. Enjoy your life and play WWII, if you have it. But keep this post in mind

    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. The first start date of the first challenge will be on Sunday September 10th. The registration is valid for the Slayers pool, not the Championship pool. Any Champions from the Ancient Trials tournament are not subject to this registration link. Registration has officially closed.

    Hey, guys. The Meh here. Look, I already made the "Pre-DLC" review and I know exactly what everyone is going to think I will say in regards to it in post-DLC. So... y'know what? I think I'm just gonna get this post out of the way and state pretty much everything I've said these past few months, given it being here, over Xbox, or anywhere else. I'll say what I've wanted to say, what I mean to say, everything. Nothing will be juxtaposed in my belief. The short way of saying things? This game was a joke. A goddamn joke wrapped up like a present - bow and all - with Modern Warfare Remastered, which, in comparison, would have been better off releasing this year ON ITS OWN than being paired with the shameful Black Ops III/Advanced Warfare crack baby copy-paste offspring that Infinite Warfare truly is. Infinite Warfare has become the game that completely destroyed my trust in Infinity Ward's delivery of Call of Duty, and, likely because of this, I won't be buying for their seasons... I simply won't. At least, not before its release. Not before I know what I'm to expect. This game, it's gone as far as to effect how I feel about the future of Call of Duty, whereas I've already pre-ordered WWII (speaking of, why do we want this if we've got like 10 games from back in the day about it... I don't understand that one... but hey, hype train amirite), and yet I have a doubt that Sledgehammer won't deliver, and this will just be worse than Advanced Warfare, where, albeit belief, I though was a solid game... with issues, yes, but it was not a bad game. I wouldn't want to give Infinite Warfare a shitty time here, though, so I'm going to do this the way I did for the last review and go by category... and, hey, if you'd like to read the pre-DLC review, I'll link it here for you. But, yeah... let's do this. Campaign: Yonder a year ago or so, the Infinite Warfare reveal trailer was posted, and, in the description, it reads the following: "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare returns to the roots of the franchise where large-scale war and cinematic, immersive military storytelling take center stage. Prepare for a gripping war story in which players fight against the Settlement Defense Front to defend our very way of life." While I don't completely agree with the addition of the words "returns to the roots of the franchise"... I don't think it's the most wrong statement. For a while now, actually, a lot of the campaigns we've been playing have a gripping story to them, and they all play out rather well. The full Modern Warfare series, while not entirely my favorite (minus MW2 - you can't beat that), is exactly what they are referring to if they mean to recall their roots. Not that it was - they used to do WWII games and storytelling was awful... and I played Call of Duty 2 on my Xbox recently. It's not that great. It's almost cheesy. Off-topic, anyways, the point is that Campaign has definitely been in the forefront of Call of Duty for a while now, and a lot of them are great... Advanced Warfare was even good, y'know? All that being said, I still feel confident in saying that the Campaign of this Call of Duty is great. It may even be the best of this series yet. I'm sure that somewhere out there, they say that the heart of darkness is made of gold, and I agree with them. This Campaign is exactly what I would have wanted to see in this game if we went this far... and their execution of it was perfect. They used the new environments space provided to their advantage and made most missions feel unique. Their storytelling was echelons above normal, actually going as far as environmental storytelling at times, and building characters that you grow to have a likable bond with, and uses that psychological storytelling very much to their advantage. The Campaign, at the end of the day, is like a diamond in the rough. I'll probably go on to say how shitty the rest of the game is, but I would never tell you this Campaign is bad. Never. The Campaign, by far, is what you NEED to play for this game. It is an experience that, for a while now in CoD, has been unmatched among others. I'm definitely an advocate for it. But... unfortunately, that cannot save the game, can it... Multiplayer: I did not play this game much. I still don't play this game much. This is because, after the campaign is done, what's left but to try these other modes? Honestly, while the campaign was good, its replayability is... sparse. So, given, you'd play multiplayer. Just... don't play multiplayer. How could Infinity Ward FUCK UP a multiplayer? They're the masterminds of the mode compared to others! They do it right! How do they fuck it up? They take the couple of ideas before it that broke it down and implemented them: Gun variants and supply drops. Admittedly, nobody outright likes gun variants. They are a cool concept, yes, and can work, but you can't outright make them OP and the only gun people use (*cough* ASM1 - Speakeasy *cough* Bal-27 - Obsidian Steed *cough*), then not fix them. That being said... they never do. Infinity Ward definitely doesn't seem to have, and, if I've heard right, still has issues with everyone and their mothers using the NV4 - Flatline variant. Also, fuck supply drops. Honestly. They're not better here. They're much, much worse. In fact, I'm more than certain they only promote their lack of balanced gun play even selling them. I mean, what the fuck are Mark II variants supposed to be? Honestly, I'll only ever give credit to Sledgehammer for doing supply drops, since they were the ones that introduced them, and kind of did them right (and wrong at times, but generally right, if not at least correctly). Not here though. Anyways, let's move on. The more I talk about this multiplayer, the less I want to write this shit. Case point, it sucks. It's always gonna suck. Nothing will ever suck more... unless you are referring to "particular" characters from Shadows of Evil, then maybe it has competition. But otherwise, no. This multiplayer is worse than that old retro E.T. game that caused a video game market crash in the first place back in the day. I thought we were better than this. Zombies: IW Zombies was supposed to be good. Let's be fair about that. It had a lot of potential. There was a lot they could have done right in a setting that can parody the genre as much as it can anything else, while even giving it the twist of music as it did. There was a lot it could have done and a lot that should have been done. But, in the end, it pains me to say it failed. It sucks, both in the perspective that this potential was wasted, and that this mode in general just isn't great. I've not felt the need to buy much in the line of DLC and that is because I know it won't yield a return of enjoyment for me. But I still experienced this for what it was. I have opinions, and I will voice them. In the original post, I suppose I wasn't great with explaining my uncertainty with Zombies in Spaceland. Justifiably, it is a rather... difficult map to explain and discern. I'll do my best here: Zombies in Spaceland is, indeed, your quintessential IW Zombies map. If you're trying to like this series of maps, you're essentially gonna start here. It's pretty much a cut and paste of the regular Zombies formula, but somehow they complicated it. Part of me would like to think it's a lack of depth or explanation of the world, or the mechanics and their difference (i.e. buildables and how you're meant to get them), but... it's honestly just boring after a while, either way. Kind of like the rest of the game. Funny. (Oh, and Mr. Hoff-9000 cannot save it. No amount of 80's retro will ever make Spaceland fun again, especially the Hoff himself.) Rave in the Redwoods, in my eyes, was... admittedly supposed to be a good map, likely. It had a different set-up from its predecessor (admittedly, the 90's rave scene looked great), the lead-up actually looked relatively intriguing (if not lacking some depth), and it just seemed like a step up from Zombies in Spaceland in general... and, it was! For what gameplay I have seen, it looks like actual fun. From what "story" I've heard of this map, it's also kind of interesting, what with the story of Kevin Smith and the one other actor whose name leaves me at this moment. That being said... I've heard a lot about how easy the map is. My friend got to round 69 on the map, and all he did was stand in a single spot with crossbows... which, if I've heard right, are copy-paste bows from Der Eisendrache, an actually good map by comparison. Not every time does something like this feel as though it breaks the integrity of the map - we have seen examples before, mainly in Ascension and Revelations, albeit both having different issues - though, something like this certainly does exactly that. Now, I wouldn't innately align my opinions on Rave in the Redwoods with that of a friend I play Xbox games with. While it is jarring, and while it does say a lot about the map, I cannot simply go and say that it fixates my opinions to "oh, this map's just a copy-paste high round map" (even though it probably is). At the end of the day, though, the map kinda just ruins the first impression... which, believe it or not, can be important. This map falls ever so short from grace, indeed. Now... I feel odd moving forward, because, quite frankly, these next few maps are just odd in themselves by my standard and understanding. Nonetheless, I suppose I must talk of them. Oh well. So, copy-paste Shadows *cough* I MEAN Shaolin Shuffle... is an interesting follow-up from Rave in the Redwoods. Given, the jump from 90's to 70's (I think) seems rather quick and strange, but that is kinda the shtick of IW Zombies. At least, at this point you should have realized this. That being said, the mechanic change and the way powers and such would work here actually seemed to look appealing. It actually, once again, fueled my intrigue. From what gameplay I've actually seen and what story I know, this map actually seems the most solid of them yet. The style and map on its own is a gimmick, yes, but the map looks to play very well. I'd go as far to say that it's the quintessential DLC map... next to a certain not-so-great one to come... but, hey, what do I know? The community probably understands the DLC better than me, which is fine. I'm not writing to boast, complain, or justify which side of mine should be correct - I'm just writing this because I want to, and... because I kinda got myself stuck doing it with the Pre-DLC Review. Anyways, I'm rambling. Moving on. Ah... Attack of the Radioactive Thing. Acronym for "A.R.T.", if you think about it. Ironic. Self-righteous, too. Anyways... this is one I actually bought. Recently, too. I hadn't played IW in a very long while, and I pretty much told myself I didn't care, I had the money to waste. So, I bought it, and I played it... and, well... Look at it this way. The style is meant to call back to that basic 40's/50's style, which, even then was its own kind of gimmick, and has aged. The style would not have been right either way, but they went with it. I can commend and respect that. That being said, I understand less why Elvira is in the map... minus whatever sense spells and shit makes, because I'm pretty sure that's what I've seen of her in this map, and I find it both fitting to her and strange to IW Zombies. But, at that point that statement is the same as all of what I've said so far about Zombies being strange in this game (to be fair, I do certainly see a certain level of strangeness and uncertainty with this game mode). At the end of the day, I don't think I would have asked for this map. I don't think I would have asked for mutated crabmen and crabzilla. I don't think I would have asked for a meth lab EE. There's... a lot of things that I don't quite like about this map. Can't say I'll ever change my perspective on it. But oh man. I think the worst offender from the previous map is the finding of the tapes that chronicle Extinction. While it kind of is a cool meta thing for them to do - the world of Extinction was made by Willard, so I suppose that means he is good at making movies then, yaaaaaaaay happy emojis and unicorns shitting rainbows infinitely - it essentially called for The Beast from Beyond. Which sounds fucking stupid. There's a reason remakes are bad, Willard. Haven't you learned from the way the box office works? I figured your retirement was because of the money you wouldn't be making. But yeah, "Beast from Beyond". I don't care what anyone says, and I don't care what the game says - I'd never call the Cryptids aliens. Nor would I imply they are, and I would NEVER choose to tear that name asunder from its pedestal by doing so. That pisses me off. It pisses me off that they decided it would be a good idea to put Cryptids into Zombies (which is called Zombies for a reason goddammit). While, say, Treyarch's rendition of Zombies with Black Ops III doesn't exactly do it any favors, adding Cthulhu-based monsters and occult shit, it does well to keep them within their bubble of the "Zombies atmosphere". I'd go as far to say they even fit their aesthetic. But... Cryptids? Really? It just ruins the experience, in my eyes, when they MAKE THE CHOICE to put something into a map that you can tell doesn't belong. It's insulting to me, as a Call of Duty player, to see the company that used to make the best games of its series insult one of the better non-Zombies survival modes by tearing the very fabric that made it unique to pieces and throwing it up to the wind. At this point, it reminds me less of the greatness that Extinction was, but more-so reminds me of how much better Ghosts 2 would have been if that were the game Infinity Ward made. It reminds me about how much I'd love to see Extinction return to form. It reminds me of how good Extinction was. But, unfortunately, that is not what they did. They chose, instead, to make this game, and to release this map, which taints the memory all the same. It taints the idea on its own, creating its own poison... and I want none of it. Now, I honestly don't know how this map plays out in the EE or how it works with the Cryptids, as I've tried to ignore that. But, I do know how this map played out the ending of IW Zombies. I'd always thought that the coolest part of IW Zombies lore, admittedly, was the fact that all this was driven by the devil himself, Mephistopheles. That a simple producer like Willard had to make a deal with the devil and essentially collect souls for the devil to gain his fame. It was... well, an unoriginal idea, but something that gave the story an... admirably respectable form. Given all this, I'm sure the boss fight was good, too. But, I didn't think my last memory of IW Zombies would have to be Mephistopheles depicted in full demonic form like he just came out of MS Paint in an official cutscene. Emphasis: OFFICIAL CUTSCENE. I expected this: But got this: Jesus Christ... I guess, past that, though... not a bad ending to Zombies, I guess. Perhaps a little too open-ended for my liking. But... not bad. I'd give an overall rating for Zombies here, but I think this next part will do better. OVERALL: Shigeru Miyamoto once said that the "obvious objective of video games is to entertain people by surprising them with new experiences". I feel that something like this is important for us, as an entire community devoted to Call of Duty - Zombies specifically - should be thinking about in stride and live by in a more passionate sense. Infinite Warfare, by all standards, is not the perfect CoD, and is far from perfect by a longshot. With a Campaign that, on its own, would stand as a perfect set-up for a franchise outside of CoD's reaches, and a Multiplayer and Zombies mode that don't add anything to the experience, it would be safe to say that this game is a failure. Not only financially, as it probably did sell much less, but personally. I've never regretted choices when buying video games - most are good, most I play. This would be the first. I hope it's the only one. If I were to rate by mode, it would be safer than not to say that the Campaign is due a good 8/10 for solid gameplay, actual choice of mission and course of action - something I loved from Black Ops II that I haven't seen since - and an overall compelling story that defines what duty means in the face of impossible odds. At least that is something that holds true to it. Multiplayer would receive 2/10. I'm not evil, so it is not 0. But I fucking hate it. Y'know, the last time I felt this vehement about a CoD Multiplayer was Black Ops II, and my mind was honestly jaded when I considered why I hated that Multiplayer... in fact, all things considered, Black Ops II actually has my favorite Multiplayer now (next to Black Ops III - I know, I'm petty, but it is a fun time when you get into it... and ignore blaring sirens that form into Cryptokeys and Supply Drops). Zombies... would be a 5/10. I feel indecisive when saying that, but that seems to be what it deserves. Like what Exo Zombies deserved (speaking of, I should do my post-DLC review for that too). (So, overall, that's 15/30. 50% in a review? What would that tell you...) At the end of the day, however, all things considered... I wouldn't ask you to ignore it blatantly. As I keep saying, the game is a bit of an experience of its own. You pretty much have to experience the Campaign to understand how good it is, and actually understand that Infinity Ward, on an overarching perspective, tried their hardest to deliver something that resembled a quality game (they went as far as to put the relatively typical thank you at the end of the credits... which is fine). I mean, if this were released before Black Ops II and had no ties to Call of Duty, would you consider the game to be bad? Hell, it could have become something great, with its own franchise behind it if it were good enough. I'm rambling, though. My point is, while you shouldn't really buy this game, experience it for what it is if you DO end up buying it (that is, if you haven't already). Experience the almost unmatched stortytelling skills from Campaign, then experience the actual stupid shit after. Experience the bad to understand it, I suppose. ...yeah, I should end this post now. What do you guys think? How did you like or dislike Infinite Warfare? Feel free to reply if you want. Per aspera ad astra, -The Meh

    http://www.callofdutyzombies.com/store/product/11-x-17-shadows-of-evil-movie-poster/ That's right folks, we finally released a brand new Zombies move poster under the guise of "Shadows of Evil"! We went for a more mainstream, minimalist look to give a simple, cleaner look for the upcoming Black Ops 3 Zombies maps we have gearing up. Perhaps we will see this baby soon in the Divinium Factory... What maps would you like to see become posters?

    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!

    Sounds like he's saying Bolshevik, which is a political alignment for the Russian Social Democratic Party earlier in the 1900s led by Lenin in Russia. It soon led to becoming the infamous communist party.

    Yes! We were involved in the fan experience and even overlay graphics. Also provided the Mystery Box loot crates as well as the Staff of Ice prop. Had been working on everything since July 5th, hence my busy-ness.

    I will allow extension of each challenge to two weeks instead of one. Plus, given the end of the ZWC1, I will have time to make it happen, haha.

    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

    The end has come. The final challenge of this year's Ancient Trials 2017 Tournament has yielded in interesting not 1, but 2 split winners for the month of August. Congratulations @andydabeast and @sushine1 for sharing the dual-crown this month! Normally a split decision would result in some form of tie-breaker; however, with the ZWC fast approaching in a few days, there is not enough room for a separate challenge or exact formula to consider a breaker. With that being said, the end of the Ancient Trials for the year has yielded a mighty list of official Olympics contestants in our Champion pool. The current Champions-To-Be are: August - @andydabeast & @sushine1 June - @TXMR May - ViggyTheBear April - @sushine1 March - @andydabeast February - @mralways1 January - @Neanesis This means we had a total of 6 contestants in our Champion Pool, and two more available slots...this means an upcoming Wildcard mini-bracket to determine which two lucky yet unfortunate souls have a chance to compete among the best of the best. We're be plucking them out of their respective dimensions very soon. Now, let's move on to what you've all been waiting for... 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. 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 This information will be coming on Monday August 20th, 2017. Stay tuned - there will be Divinium involved as well as cash prizes. 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. 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. Registration Information Due to our association with the Zombies World Championship, the exact date of registration is TBA. We are projecting for the information to come online beginning on Monday August 20th, 2017. All players will be required to complete a Google Form that will give them entry to the competition. Please be consistently checking your emails once you register so you don't miss any deadlines or important info. May the best slayers of this realm survive.

    I've always looked at it as Samantha. Since the loop has been going on endlessly, she would age and the fact that she has been completely corrupted. I don't think it's German either, especially how much things have evolved. To me it sounds serpent-like, slithering when it speaks... and the same goes for the demon in the MPD scowling at Richthofen. Or maybe none of this. Not even the Shadowman. I am open to something bigger than them

    Great! I like it how Monty's story summarizes the events happened prior, in Book 1, 2 and 3. In this way, Book 4 will continue the Anthagony excellently. Oh, one small request. In the old chapter of Extraterrestrial, the Apothicans in Richthofen's head say "Coming home". That quote gave me the chills, really. Would you mind putting that quote back into it? Furthermore, awesome work as always, Rad

    Looks like Verruckt & Der Riese if World at War was made in 2008. I mean, 2018. The game looks refreshing, but this just looks like a remake from 10 years ago. Carbon Copy of OG Zombies, but if you find a good thing, beat the living shit out of it. (Modern Day trailers have amazing graphics though. Top notch definition)

    I want to make this for those to feel like they're constantly at the bottom of a never ending roller coaster. We've all been there and sometimes we feel like it's never going to come back up but trust me life is the roller coaster and it's always going to come back up. This past April I lost my 17-year-old cousin to suicide. It was about a girl and he was with that girl. He was threatening to go to himself in front of her and she left the room and eventually left him by himself. That night he took a chair and a belt and he hung himself. Earlier then I he was having fun with his friends out camping laughing and appeared to his best friends happiest guy in tHe world. He had a future after college and a family that cared about him and a girl who he would do anything for I simply want to say that no matter how far down you think you are no matter how bad or how sad the moment seem. You matter and what you do matters. I want you to take your hand and place it where your heart is.. do you feel that? That is called purpose. Your alive for a reason don't ever give up.

    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%
