    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.

    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.

    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?

    It's largely due to us having two divisions instead of 1. We are working towards creating a larger pool in the future once we gain more traction.

    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 definitely agree that Edward was rather a victim of the agenda of the Apothicans instead of a genius/god. A good observation of you, one I have never thought about, is that the Apothicans are in control of everything that's teleported (the MTD "tunnel" you see when teleporting, is the Dark Aether, home of the Apothicans). Basically, the Apothicans are able to teleport you wherever they want you, once you've used the MTD and you're inside the Dark Aether. Usually, though, they don't care where you teleport to. Except one time. Though, I don't think the Apothicans chose him for his personality. If you think about it, Richthofen was the very first living human that used the Matter Transference Device. Humans are easy to corrupt, and the Apothicans needed a physical, 3-dimensional host for their plans. The problem is that the MPD, the Apothicans pyramid, is hidden in a cave on Earth's Moon, far away from any humans. The first time a living person teleported himself, Edward Richthofen, and travelled through the Dark Aether, the Apothicans were able to send him to the MPD to start the "outbreak" of the Apothicans. So I don't think it was Richthofen's character that was the reason, but it was pure coincidence that he was the first who used the MTD. What the Apothicans exactly are, and what they want, is indeed something vague. They originate from Keepers, an alien race from our 3th Dimension who someday "ascended to Agartha to become the wards of all universes". So the Keepers/Apothicans originate from the 3D, just like humans. But now they are extra-dimensional. The Apothicans are those Keepers who are corrupted by the Dark Aether, possibly a negative dimension. In WaW/BO/BO2 they were never able to directly enter our dimension, yet in SoE and Revelations, two maps who are set in a very extraordinary setting, the Apothicans ARE able to enter that particular dimension and directly face our characters. They enter that dimension with a small explosion, possible antimatter from the Dark Aether (if that's really a a negative dimension). So I would like to say that the Apothicans are besides extra-dimensional, also trans-dimensional. In the right circumstances, they are able to travel to other dimensions.

    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

But between the relocation process and getting my internet reconnected, only 1 week to submit doesnt seem likely especially with my daughter starting school.

    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.

    Wait. Are you speaking about the one who talks in TranZit and screams when you grab a power-up? Because that's for sure Richthofen. "Fetch me their souls", the quote that can be heard when the Hellhounds are teleported to Earth, is Richthofen too. It are Fluffy's puppies, stuck in the Dark Aether. Richthofen is able to teleport things from a location to another location, but also from the Dark Aether to Earth (Power-ups, jumping jacks, and yes, Hellhounds). The hounds don't really have a side they fight for. They are not loyal to someone and hate someone else. It are just by darkness corrupted animals, killing everyone on their path. So it does not matter if Samantha or Richthofen sends them, they do where they exist for: Hunting. And the voice is obviously the same as the TranZit and power-up voice: Doctor Richthofen. If you are talking about the girl giggling when you roll the teddy bear...I don't know. It does not really sound like Richthofen, does it? But it could be an ancient evil, sadistic spirit within him: the Apothicans, or the Dark Aether EDIT: or are you talking about the announcer in BO1 now?

    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

    It is Doctor Edward Richthofen, and some kind of demon at the same time. He is inhabited by the Apothicans, an ancient evil that originated of corrupted Keepers, ever since Richthofen touched the MPD. I guess that's the only explanation, if it even could be called an explanation, for the girl voice. Or it is Richthofen immitating Samantha.

    Too many unmarked graves out there... Too many lost, forgotten souls who have faded into obscurity, pistol in hand as they curse their fellow survivors for being too slow or stupid to reach the box alley in time to revive them on waves 50+. A word of warning to all who prefer quick revive over Tombstone... I am not a Medic. This means after, roughly wave 20, I am not reviving you unless the current situation allows for it. Not because I don't want to risk my own ass for the sake of your weapons, but because if you liked having weapons and perks, you should have bought insurance for them... I may seem like a bitter, jaded ass for even creating this thread, but too many times I have had sessions regress into total failure because people cannot stay on their feet. And look, accidents happen, I'm a knife guy so I know, lol. But when you have decent players who go down on waves 20+ and have to be manually revived, therefor losing all perks and needing to do a full run before they are fit to fight again, it gets so tiring, so annoying. Most of your problems in COD Zombies are solved with one Perk costing you a mere 2000 points. TOMBSTONE Behold, the drink of Champions... Let me give you the Skinny on the best Perk in the game, hands down. Reasons To Buy Tombstone Being Downed costs you NOTHING, only the cost of another Tombstone (2k points). You don't have to stress whether or not you'll be revived in time. You don't have to worry about the cost of perks. When you get back, you have everything, the other 3 perks you had, and all your weapons/PaPs. You never have to buy your perks again! The other 3 perks you had, are still there, that's why it's even better than Jugg, because it locks in your Jugg so long as you buy it. NO REVIVES. All you have to do is keep doing you, survive the round, and everyone comes back just as they left... Most people who are aware you've gone down with Tombstone will change their strategy to sweep the round as quick as possible to get you back. You wake up with Jugg and Tap, ready to go. It only costs you 2k to recover from a down. I mean it's common sense, lol. Quick Revive is for newbs, period. Only time it's logical to buy is on solo (obvious) or if you're in a session and came to realize there are going to be a lot of downs, but you're too committed to just leave. I'm approaching the point where I simply won't revive people, ever. Then maybe, just maybe they'll be forced to ask themselves, "why?" EDIT: Also, when you have Tombstone, as soon as you hit the floor, hold X (360) or Square (PS) to activate Spectator Mode. NO, it does not take you out of the session, it removes your downed body so no one revives you, ruining your Tombstone effects. Do not, I repeat, do not lay there expecting us to know that you have it, lol.

    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?

    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.

    Always hoping for the day when I can get an EE run in...been talking with my pal @FatedTitan and actually, my wife as well about one - you could be our #4! As usual, no ETA as of yet, however. lol! Family life keeps me on my toes. And I found out yesterday it just grew +1 brains (joke for the benefit of the old CODZers who remember). XD This weekend is jammed packed because I wanna give my lady time to get in some more thrill park stuff before it becomes "not doctor recommended." Otherwise, I'll keep you on the top of my list for folks to shout out for EE plans! The video is blocked by my employer's web filter, but I'll give it a watch this evening - looks like a good one!

    Hmm. Well, I can see that the "Chicken Sandwich Enthusiasts Club" post has been dead for almost a month now. To hopefully alleviate this in some way, here is a chicken sandwich.

    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

    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%

    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]
