    Oh, the memes! So much happiness here on CODZ - THE HEAT OF THEIR BURNING FLESH WARMS MY HEART - ahem, excuse me. 

     

    I echo you all! Y'all said it, folks. The Trilogy - nay, the Quad Feed is complete! WAW, BO, BO2, BO3...I'm set. If only I hadn't started ACIII on 360, I would likely put it away forever. And honestly, ACIII is so dull, I still may. 

     

    At any rate, already hopped on and 1v4 stomped some n00bs in Town: Grief, when all my teammates disappeared in the first couple minutes. Generally douchey randoms, too. Ah, the feels. lol!

     

    Can't wait to see some of y'all out there!

     

    Now we can play and I don't need to dig out the 360 :smiley:


  2. Sorry for the downtime today folk's, I've not had much time as of late and I promised to process updates and upgrades.

     

    So today we updated to the most recent version of IPB and we also update the site to run on PHP version 7, which brings many many benefits. I'll get a list fo improvements for the forumand post them ASAP.


  3. Sorry to announce folk's, the CoDz forum mobile app will soon be disappearing from the App store with Apple. It will still be available via tapatalk app but not as a standalone app. 

     

    The costs for hosting, forum software, apps such as tapatalk etc. are expensive and we are not receiving the ad revenue that we once received. So we are cutting back on costs, as donations are scarce and everything is being paid out of our own pockets and i'm no longer putting the same amount of funds into the site to keep it going when ad revenue falls short of covering costs. Not because I don't have any love for the site, I just need my funds for other things at this time.

     

    So unfortunately, the CoDz app is no more as of today, sorry for the short notice.


  4. Not being funny, but could you not have put this all into one message? I'm currently sitting at work, busy doing technical drawings and my outlook is just popping up with notifications for medals (11 notifications so far). Sorry but i'm having a piss poor day and it's doing ma tits in.


  5. It's dying, why. Wash, rinse, repeat and yes it's a slow death.

    It has to and needs to change, that's AW, BOIII and now IW that have been huge let downs.

    Sales are generally OK but sales don't necessarily mean success. Sure the bottom dollar is what counts but if you continue to piss of the players (which has been seen for the past 3 years by shown them contempt) the franchise will ultimately fail.

  6. I would just like to say, I understand what others are saying and I appreciate their thoughts.

     

    The big thing here, it is really big is that Call of Duty is dying, it has been dying for several years. Why? It's the same shite every year, it's the same bad programming year after year with all the glitches that it brings, it's the same shite every year without any real innovation.

     

    Take a leaf out of Battlefield 1's book, wow - what an immense and different game.

     

    Activision are to blame for introducing this shitty three year cycle, they are going for the bucks and nothing else and they were doing it before Sledgehammer got involved in the dev cycle. Several things need to change, they seriously need to invest in a new engine. The studios need to change strategy and understand that all this jumping about mechanics is complete nonsense (I'm sure new players and old will disagree).

     

    As a result of Call of Duty is dying (and it is), which means Zombies is dying by default.


  7. I agree @InfestLithium- the only problem I have though, is gaming in general seems to be a thing of the past for me now. It was always going to happen to me, it was just a case of when (crikey I'm 40 this year).

     

    I still want to play a decent game of Der Eisendrache, Origins, Town, MoTD with the boys but only when I have time, I'm no longer going to be sitting in the living room playing video games at night, whilst the wife goes to watch TV in the bedroom. We suffered as a result of that and I'm never allowing her (or my kids) to feel anything other than happiness. I'm still going to be involved in zombies in some way, my eldest is daft on them and always asking how to do things (one thing this game has given me and my son is a bond). He hates football (no not soccer, football. Football is played with a ball and feet not hands and feet ok ;) ) he hates my musical tastes etc. but that's probably "I dinnae like my dad that much age thing".

     

    Keep up the good work with the trials, I know it's not easy being the front runner and trying to get things moving and improving but you are greatly appreciated and respected for it.


  8. Just to add my tuppence in here and shoot me down in flames for it if need be.

     

    Zombies is dying, the community is dying and it has been for some years. The last year and the last incarnation of Zombies has been a massive let down and a massive failure imo. However back on topic. Community wise, to many people got to big for their own boots, thinking they are better than others and didn't really embrace the community in the way it originally started. Treyarch pandered to the YouTubers only and failed to embrace the community in the way it once did.

     

    Dan started this (CoDz) community and we thank him for doing so, others started their own and well I wasn't privy to everything that wen't on but it felt like sour grapes from them from being the "smaller community and thinking they are better than us. When in fact we are all the same - we are all human beings. Our community though is/was based on theorists, strategists and easter egg hunters. We have tried to supply the community with tools to make obtaining these as easy as possible and invested with the help of our community into the LFG system. PTG shut down for a prolonged period of time and then made a return last year for some reason.

     

    Other communities started such as high rounders, I tried to start a leaderboard system, not to compete with them but to open it up to all players for a personal pride thing - so they could register a high round achievement to share with the community. Didn't matter to us whether it was round 5 or round 200. Even that community split and another site opened up as a result.

     

    You know what I did notice though, they all started using the same forum software that CoDz was using. That I switched CoDz over to. So we must have been something right, we seem to have been copied a helluva lot.

     

    Personally though, I couldn't care what people think about me or CoDz, that's people being narrow minded, self centred and so far up their own arse (or someone elses) that I don't care. We are here to provide a place for the community to come together and share ideas and organise games and at our own expense (donations have been scarce and so has ad revenue). If that makes people dislike us, then it's them that have the problem and not me or us.


  9. With a heavy heart.

    It has been several months since I have been active, I took some time out to spend more time with the family, concentrate on work and to generally enjoy life away from the site and gaming in general. At 40 years old this year, my time for gaming has dwindled Year or Year.

    So I have decided with a heavy heart to hang up my gloves and hand over the reigns to someone else.

    When I joined the team, the site had a few technical and staffing problems and as a team we got rejuvenated and pushed the site forward and self funded.

    We aren't quite self funded but close to it.

    I'm going to stick around for a few weeks in the background with the staff to discuss and implement the required changes and ensure everything is handed over smoothly.

    As a team though, it is apparent that we are pretty much mostly of the same opinion and others may also hang up the gloves but that is for them to say who they are and if/when that will happen.

    It's probably for the best with a fresh injection of ideas from new and existing staff members on how to push the site forward and what changes if any are required.

    It's been a pleasure getting to know you, for those that don't know me or know if me - sorry about that.

    Wishing everyone the very best for the years ahead.


  10. This was the first ever home console I ever played.

    Followed by the trusted Atari posted above by @DaveLo07, my earliest recollection was pong and I can't recall playing many games on the Atari as it was the families and time was very limited on it (my dad limited us to about an 2 hours at the weekends only). However, my Spectrum was where I really fell in love with gaming, to many games to mention but Outrun, Jet Pac Willy, Yie Ar Kung Fu to name but a few.
