  1. Late bloomer here, tail end of BO and then it was BOII. I was always a CoD player but more so multiplayer tbh.

     

    I dabbled in zombies from the beginning but nothing serious. Then me and my mates got a team together just for kicks on multiplayer and we were sick of it and played zombies more and more.

     

    Thats when I really got into it, roughly 2011. Then, the rest is history.


  2. Agreed on both fronts, just about to board a flight, will have a look when I land tonight and get to the hotel. 

     

    Reply needs a wee outline of sorts and definitely need to be able to collapse latest posts/topics.

    At first I was like AH WTF, but I just don't like change, objectively though it does look nicer. A criticism would be that the text is a bit dark maybe? Makes it slightly hard to read, think plain white would look better. Just my could of pennies worth though, dunno if anyone else feels the same.

     

     Lets have a look at this, I have change it to white text, it's a bit much for me to be honest.

    Thanks for highlighting, it is the standard editor with no changes, however, the editor may be calling some of the css from the theme and I’ll look into this.

    I've changed the editor just now to a different version, the icons are images that are being called from within CK Editor, not the them. Will look into a solution.


  5. No doubt you'll have noticed that we have upgraded the site and we now have a new theme, I'm sure you'll all agree it looks great and will take a little bit of getting used too. Hope you all like it, however, if you come across any bugs or such like, or something doesn't look/feel right. Please let us know below.


  6. Did you know?

     

    You can set a custom activity stream to follow the content you want to follow, you don't have to view all activity, you can choose what you want to view, how you want to view it. 

     

    So lets say you want to view just Alpha Omega topics/post, then choose the relevant options with a custom stream, save the stream and call it whatever you want "Alpha Omega" sounds like a good shout. 

     

    So how do you do it?

     

    I've set a custom stream to follow staus updates, records, topics and tournaments. You can also select the other options such as show me, read status, ownership e.t.c.

    From within topics options (drop down to the right). I have set custom forum sections that I want to appear in this stream

     

    4a8c8c53b4ecf29bcf7f7adeb1b25a7b.png

     

    Save the stream with a custom title

     

    61c78a8eed34e8d4d1d0df0d6beadc0e.png

     

    Set as your default stream if you so choose, you can also edit that stream and you can delete the stream if you choose to do so.

     

    872c5c893015a3f780dc7d8d49f8d1a0.png

     

    You will now only see content from the options selected, so I'll see status updates with this streams, new activity in records, topics/posts from the forums I have selected and any new tournament content. 

     

    You choose what you want to view, you can have multiple stream options. You can set a stream as your default stream, you can choose to delete the stream, you can edit the stream. 

     

    Hope this helps.


  7. To be honest, I think the problems at SledgeHammer are a shame. I haven't played WWII and I really like 1st & 2nd World War type games. In fact it's what CoD was started on. It needs to go back to it's roots in some form. I'm totally pissed with the direction that all the CoD titles have taken except WWII, in fact, I might even buy it now just because it is a World War game.

     

    As for BOIIIII, I'm still a huge sceptic in the direction Zombies has taken and think the responsibility for this direction lays with Blundell, I think he has ruined it completely since BOIII and the only decent map was Der Eisendrache and Gorod Korovi, everything else just stank - more so the storyline.

     

    I haven't even touched BOIIII. So if it's anything like the line they took with BOIII & BOIIII, the titles doomed. Sad bud true. What I think is needed, is going to the timeline of events and filling in some of the blanks. I mean, what was the point of the Tranzit Richtofen/Maxis EE's for example, it didn't develop anything, So they have a huge oppurtunity to correct some wrongs. Get the gobblegums to f**k and get back to the core of what was Zombies - teamwork, survival & classic perks.


  8. Zombies was essentially ruined by the yearly cycle. InfinityWard and Sledgehammers incarnations never took off.

     

    Black Ops 4 has not lived up to the expectations of the community as far as I can tell.

     

    Time for a new mode, a breath of fresh air.

  10. We have been working hard in the background doing some adjustments to the website and user experience and want to give you a little understanding of what we have done, are doing and a few did you know things.

     

    1. We have done some server changes, implemented a different PHP handler, introduced memcache and config updates. This helped tremendously with site peformance.
    2. We then introducted Cloudflare again to help with speed and performance.

      Page Speed Insights
      8bc46fa9e35c274efc8720a4e84eabb8.png

      We've still got some improvements we can do, this is web report from Page Speed Insights, Mobile is needing a little bit more work but we're on it.

      This is GTMetrix,

      The important thing to understand here, is the fully loaded time takes into account the AD's which are being served to guests on the main index, remove the AD's and you obtain a different fully loaded time of around 2 seconds.
       
    3. We have intruduced a higher setting for guest caching, this is set at 3 minutes at the moment but is only a test, it could be set at 10 minutes for better results.
    4. We are looking at image optimisation and will discuss with the team about using webp for better image processing & provide better image file sizes compared to jpg/png for example and superior lossless compression. In addition to images, we should be hosting all images within our resources on the site and not hosting on 3rd party sites (such as photobucket). It reduces the amount of look ups by uploading all images to the site and then having these images served from amazon S3 for example. 
    5. Broken profile images are being changed when we find them, this was a result of a failed S3 setup which @Hells Warrriortakes the blame for. 
    6. Broken links and general clean up has been performed.
    7. We've introduced at the top of the forum a new section called "Our picks" - what is our picks? Our picks is basically a selection of content that is chosen by the team, it is then promoted to social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter) and appears in our picks section as well. Why are we doing this? It brings attention to the topics/articles on the site and brings people to the site (hopefully) to use and stick around.

      96dddeeee6b4b9fac5a747b4077d622d.png
    8. All software is up to date and shouldn't be presenting any problems.
    9. We still have things going on in the background we are working on as well but no news to share at the moment.

     

    So what about these, did you know's?

     

    Did you know, if you post a status update on CoDz, that you can share that status update to social media? It's currently enabled for Twitter, Facebook will be coming soon.

  11. You should all be starting to see the website speed improving, we made some changes on the server by introducing memcached again, we are also using a faster php processor mod.

     

    on top of that, the forum software now implements some speed and performance enhancements and we are now running a content delivery network service.

     

    load times should be pretty rapid and we’ll be monitoring the changes and implementing further changes if required and when needed.

     

    If you’re finding things take longer than 2 seconds to fully load, let us know and we can have a look.
