  1. While I'd share your concern if they do abandon the main conventions of Black Ops like this, it seems to me that BOCW won't be as black and white as it seems. The first trailer begins with Adler saying "This war was a lie. Years of blood. Just to light the fuse of a secret war decades in the making." The videos of the Hacker from pawntakespawn also show a lot of classic Black Ops grey area stuff. The hacker generally condemns both superpowers and calls out the lies of governments. We also heard a lot more about the campaign from media outlets who saw
  2. Highly recommend the game Control, it's really scratching my zombies itch lately, story/lore wise.
  3. Post-AO where they show it disappearing, I've always seen this as just an alternate version of the ending where they actually go kill Monty instead of creating the Agarthan Device. The loading screen beforehand is the Nuketown one, suggesting it's after AO, and then the loading screen after is the altered The Giant loading screen, which shows all the map locations becoming un-zombified, so it could arguably be the ending where they create a new universe free of 115.
  4. I would say it probably has to do with the Elemental Shard. Richtofen crafting the Shard at Siberia is arguably the most important event in the Aether story- it set everything else in motion, and binded the original 4 for eternity. This would make sense with the Shi No Numa writing, as we know that Maxis sent the Elemental Shard to Division 9 after confiscating it from Richtofen.
  5. Some of my favorite story-related translations: Human: Explore Altered Form. This one seems to be a reference to how humanity are always destined to research zombies. As we see, seemingly every government eventually ends up with a zombie research team. Transcendent: Expand Reality. Not too much insight but I’m assuming this is a reference to the attempt of humans like Pernell and Richtofen to ascend into Agartha. Dream/Illusion: Opposite/duality/altered form* Good/fortunate. This one is weird, and I’m only highlighting it because of the interesting differenc
  6. It's in the war room, go down the first staircase to the left, and right next to the debris
  7. One thing that is somewhat related to this that I've just recently discovered and haven't seen get any mention- There's a machine in the War Room of Five that is labeled "Mind-Saver". Now, this label is quite low res (but readable) and it's removed in Classified so it may not be super intentional by Treyarch but I still think it's interesting to think about.
  8. Awesome work guys. I love how these languages can really give us another perspective from which to look at the story. I've compiled all the words and their factorization. Most of these factorizations, make sense, like Keeper being good/fortunate^2 and Apothicon being evil/bad/misfortunate^2, some of them are quite insightful like how the Keepers apparently view time as a resource, and a few of them don't really make sense or maybe I'm missing a meaning. Destination/to- Opposite/duality/altered form^2 Feeling/Sensation/Conciousness- Opposite/duality/altered form *
  9. Gameplay wise, it feels absolutely oppressive to play at times, needing a space suit, the annoying Astronaut, and the excavators. Tranzit is probably the only worse map in terms of how annoying it is to play. The only redeeming factors are a fun WW and the hacker. The starting at groom lake is also a pretty good idea, but it should be each person for themselves on the teleporter so you don't get a death sentence from a clueless teammate. Visually, it's drab and boring, almost entirely gray and black. Comparing this to the previous map, Shangri-La, makes it look even worse.
  10. The LOCATIONTEXAS translation is interesting, due to a certain BO4 multiplayer map. Arsenal takes place in Texas, and is home to Diaysler, a major weapons contractor for the U.S Government for the last 100 years, designing some of the killstreaks dating back to BO1. You can find multiple documents from the CIA on the map. In the middle of the map, they are testing the Blackout helicopter and on the whiteboards you can read about some of their trials for Project Blackout. "Identify what is causing failure at this point" and "Minimal effectiveness w/ prolonged exposure"
  11. To be clear, I don't think it is 935 doing this, as all the evidence suggests it's an American/CIA project. But they've got their hands on some 935 stuff is what I was trying to say. Also there is 100% time travel involved, as Blackout itself seems to take place in the 70s. "Approved 02-12-1970" This is in one of the hangars and is also referenced in some of the Spec HQ intel. There is also an ID somewhere around the Blackout map of a guy that works for the Pentagon specifically in Project Blackout and it's dated in the 70s. Gas also priced
  12. Love this stuff, Rad. Very fascinating. There's also some quotes for each character that you get after a win, I remember one from Primis Richtofen where he exclaims that the future has changed. There is quite a few more connections, for instance the map Arsenal which is a military contractor that is seemingly planning project Blackout, has a 935 diagram of the MPD sitting around. I think the most interesting thing about them wholly combining all these modes is that in theory they're all in the same 'multiverse'- so the Tag ending would have effects on everything. Tag re
  13. They are in different dimensions. Ultimis is from the original dimension, Primis is from Dimension 63.
  14. Ok, I see the confusion. If you go by the exact timeline then this would be the order. But that's not the best way to play it in my opinion. The characters travel through time very often. So Shangri-La happens right after Call of the Dead from our perspective but is in the 50s and Call of the Dead is in 2011. I still think you should play Shangri-La after call of the dead though, as it makes much more sense that way. The best way to play it in my opinion is to do it in the order of the characters, which is the order I listed. The order of the timeline is the order that the outside
