  1. I'll actually be on top of the intel this time (and expectedly for the rest of this game's cycle). This intel only makes Zykov more suspicious in my opinion, but I'm excited to see where we end up from here. S5R Time! They have a good record of making some of my favorite MP maps from the Black Ops series into Onslaught maps! (If you're reading this, can we get Hazard next? The mechanics of Onslaught would be fantastic for the map, and I'd love to revisit the map with the new movement system!) Requiem (6/6) Documents (6/6) "The Devil's Mountain" - ECHELON - After an encounter with a strange subterranean signal, an NSA Analyst at Field Station Berlin sends a request to Central that's well above his clearance level. "A Lovely Addition" - ECHELON - As a dimensional breach occurs at Field Station Berlin, Analyst Jaworski leaves a field report for Requiem. "Echelon Breach Report" - ECHELON - Requiem Agent Meyer sends Weaver a summary report about the dimensional breach at Teufelsberg Listening Station. "Dear Dad" - DRIVE-IN - Daniel writes his father a letter about the state of Dimitar's Scrap Yard. "The Beasts from Beyond Below" - DRIVE-IN - A work crew movie night goes awry when uninvited guests crash the party. "Movie Night Flyer" - DRIVE-IN - An invitation to the event that was in progress when the dimensional breach occurred. Omega (0/0) Documents (0) "Placeholder" - PLACEHOLDER - "Placeholder" - PLACEHOLDER - "Placeholder" - PLACEHOLDER -
  2. I know, I know. But nobody bothered to tell me that when I originally tried posting this at the start of Season 4, it didn't actually post the topic. That mixed with a lot of life interventions leads me back to realizing I missed posting more than I anticipated in the first place, so yeah. Anyways, enjoy reading dialogue featuring "Agent Peck's In" (which HAS to be a wild typo for Krupin, right? otherwise the dialogue doesn't make any sense) and "Dr. Peck" in the same conversation and not getting confused. Requiem (3/3) Documents (3/3) "Comet-Cannibals" - RUSH - A paintballer chronicles his team's battle against the zombies overrunning the Spolee Field paintball facility. "Game Plan" - RUSH {Title of my MP strat} - A customer map of Spolee Field, annotated with the paintball team's battle plan. "Done and Dusted" - RUSH - Weaver sends a memo to Requiem's Director protesting the Director's resolution to the Outbreak at the Georgia paintball facility. Omega (3/3) Documents (3) "Algeria Aid Request" - COLLATERAL - An old Army buddy asks Gorev for help when a remote Algerian oil facility is caught in an outbreak. "Krupin Field Report" - COLLATERAL - Trapped in a desert facility overrun by the undead, KGB agent Krupin had an encounter with a bizarrely familiar apparition. "After-Action: Algeria" - COLLATERAL - Gorev reports his findings in the Algerian desert to Kravchenko, raising disturbing new possibilities.
  3. Standoff Intel is added (right on time, as always). There were a few times Kyrgyzstan was misspelled as Krgyzstan, funnily enough.
  4. BEST ZOMBIES SONG BEST CLARK SONG WE DID IT, EVERYONE! (EXCEPT JOHNNY, YOU'RE DEAD TO ME)
  5. I AM THE WELL!!! And for runner up, Abracadavre! Two songs well deserving of their ranks, Clark and nostalgia biases aside. It's been a fun trip getting to this point.
  6. Finished, if you add more I'll just keep adding translations to the first post to save space
  7. Wait, did you just add that recently or did I overlook it???
  8. You fool! I'm a fan of Nordic Runes!
  9. 1. I Am The Well. As amazing as Abracadavre is (I swear I'm not letting the defeat of The Gift influence this decision), there's no contest in my mind. I Am The Well is the lyrical version of Light from the Shore - the characters have to face the harder truths encompassing the whole timeline as opposed to LftS which is about reminiscing the good from it all (for us, the players). The Well (Knowledge) only flows one way, and we know full well the way down. 2. Shockwave. This was actually a LOT harder than I thought it would be. The nostalgia of 115 is amazing but Elena goes all out in this, only topped by Abracadavre and The Gift and even the former is debatable. "I'll be the tragedy I stage your life on / You're turning pages that you're meant to wait on" is such a powerful set of lines both lyrically and canonically that nothing in 115 can hold a candle to.
  10. We literally cannot progress with both matchups tied, that's insane
  11. 1. I Am The Well. Alone is great, but I Am The Well is one of the peak songs of Zombies between tone, lyrics, and relevance. 2. The Gift. Abracadavre is a top song that could only get knocked out by I Am The Well or The Gift. ...next week is going to suck. 3. The One. Nostalgia be Damned, The One is better and I'll die on that hill. 4. Shockwave. Mystery can't hold a candle in comparison.
  12. 1: Alone. Never was the biggest fan of Dead Flowers musically but the lyrics are nice from lore perspective at least. Alone is just a banger through and through. 2: I Am The Well. Carrion is good but I Am The Well is Clark's peak. 3: The Gift. Nothing to add. 4: Abracadavre. This was a REALLY hard one, because both are top contenders for different reasons but Abracadavre has some of the most powerful lyrics in all the Zombies songs while defining itself, while A Light from the Shore is a tribute to everything that precedes it. 5: 115. Sorry Ace of Spades, but you never really stood a chance from here on out. At least you went out against one of the most iconic songs in Zombies. 6: The One. Archangel's redeeming qualities are insane drumming (which is also detrimental at points) and the choir IMO. The One gives a Zombie's perspective in a unique way that I'd praise in Carrion as well if it wasn't again I Am The Well. 7: Mystery. Meh, not a big fan of either song really so could go either way. 8: Shockwave. I love Stormbound as well but Shockwave is definitely some of Elena and Kevin's best.
  13. Welp, Season 2 delivered far less intel than I anticipated! And now of course intel starts to get more interesting and the gameplay becomes more enjoyable, I swear I'm a talking monkey's paw! Anyways, here's to more intel this season and as always, all intel drops are exclusively dropped from Elites/Specials in Onslaught. Update: Wow I completely dropped the ball on this, not that there was much to add in terms of quantity. Everything should be added now for Standoff Intel, sorry for the delays. Requiem (?/?) Documents (0/?) "PLACEHOLDER" - PLACEHOLDER - Omega (6/6) Documents (6) "Exclusion Zone" - YAMANTAU - A distress call from Soviet hazmat troops at Mt. Yamantau is forwarded to Omega Group as a suspected dimensional breach. "Field Promotion" - YAMANTAU - A hazmat soldier writes in his journal about the outbreak at Mt. Yamantau, the arrival of the vaunted Omega Group, and his observations of their tactical leader, Gorev. "Yamantau Breach Report" - YAMANTAU - Gorev files an after-action report on the localized outbreak at Mt. Yamantau, and offers a plan for what to do with the Soviet hamzat troops who witnessed it all. "Eyes Only: Valentina" - STANDOFF - A secret communique from Kyrgyzstan alerts Valentina about a rare opportunity at an isolated dimensional breach. "3 Surprises" - STANDOFF - Krgyz [Kyrgyz] agent Gulnaz Azkarov writes in her journal about Valentina's unexpected response to the orb-like phenomenon. "Krgyzstan [Kyrgyzstan] Breach Report" - STANDOFF - Valentina submits the official version of her visit to Kyrgyzstan and the events that unfolded when she and Agent Azkarov braved the horrors of the outbreak.
  14. 1. I guess I'll come out swinging with a controversial pick. Lullaby for a Deadman, especially with the tone used in Nacht's game over music. 115 is a banger, but Lullaby always hit stronger in my opinion. 2. Ace of Spades. Come on, it's Motorhead. 3. Archangel, the choir alone seals it for me but if an argument even needs to be made Won't Back Down doesn't fit lyrically (although the beat is fantastic for the mood) 4. The One, but this was tough. Blood's Where Are We Going feels like an actual song as opposed to Mob's version and definitely has a more melancholic mood to it. 5. Mystery, my vote was against Cold Hard Cash last round and my opinion still stands. 6. Rusty Cage, Dead Again is fun to examine lyrically but I'm not a huge fan of the song after the guitar intro. 7. Shockwave, it's like Kevin spun the beat of Won't Back Down from pop into rock and gave it some of the best Elena lyrics. 8. Another tough one, but Stormbound grew on me a lot after giving it the chance it deserved.
  15. 1. Alone. Coming Home is great (some of the heaviest drums if not the heaviest) but honestly there's no way it's winning against Alone. 2. We All Fall Down, compared to Dead Flowers there's no contest in my mind. 3. I Am The Well, doesn't matter what the second choice was honestly. 4. Carrion, albeit it took me quite a while to get to the point I enjoyed it more than Shepherd of Fire. 5. I hate you for this one so early. The Gift wins by the thinnest margin, both are absolutely fantastic. 6. Drowning, although Dead Ended is also pretty good. Both are strong, but Drowning feels more "unique" for lack of a better word. 7. Abracadavre. Undone is great, but Elena NAILS this song and the overall tone is perfect. 8. A Light From The Shore (+Vanishing Shore). Mad Hatter was going to lose to most choices in my opinion; a very strange song that doesn't seem to work well compared to the sendoff song of Aether makes it even easier.
  16. Well, here we are months later and they've actually fixed most of these issues in the most recent update! Chalices are physical items that can drop from Elites, and Pack your weapon based on what Chalice it is (Bronze = Pack I, Silver = Pack II, Gold = Pack III). Aether Tool (basically the Dark Aether Wrench model) can also drop from Elites, and upgrade your weapon Rarity! A while back they addressed the armor plate issue overall so that's also cleared. Onslaught feels more like "classic" survival now, and even moreso for Onslaught Containment which I hope becomes a permanent addition. If I were to say anything now, the Elite waves need to be tweaked to be more abundant/harder in higher waves, because once you're able to deal with your 10th Elite Wave, you can deal with an infinite amount of them until you give up and choose to die. Even if it's as simple as adding more Elites to each wave, gradually making the amount of Elites spawn ridiculous (which we already know is possible due to Outbreak) would allow a sense of danger to remain. If not, no big deal, it's still MUCH more fun now with the recent changes and I feel I'll be playing it a lot more now.
  17. 1. Alone - This one sucks, as both are fantastic, and BoA is certainly more iconic with the riff being the round end of special waves as long as I can remember. But Alone just hits better for me, I can't quite explain it. 2. Remember Forever - No contest. Snakeskin Boots is fantastic and I listen to it all the time (still used the Shadows of Evil theme for my PS4 which plays the instrumental on loop), but Remember Forever is CRIMINALLY underrated for such an amazing song. 3. Abracadavre - Come on, this song is a masterpiece in almost every way. Nightmare is great for what it is, and may the Rev rest in peace, but Abracadavre was made for Zombies while Nightmare was made in tribute for the Rev and it's no contest in this specific context. 4. 115 - BOTD Where Are We Going would put up a better fight, but 115 is where I started my Zombies experience and would triumph over either version hands-down. 5. Beauty of Annihilation (Remix) - I'll be honest, Cold Hard Cash is great lyrically and fits the atmosphere of the map, but mixing BoA mixed with Aether is something I personally love so much despite its controversial position among the community. 6. Shockwave - Another matchup I hate, both these songs are fantastic and have their strengths. Pareidolia brings the piano which is seldom used in Zombies songs barring the Damned themes (I'm a sucker for the piano used well in songs). Shockwave jam packs lore based lines that are very meta to its time, which I feel makes it hit harder. Both are fantastic here, but Shockwave just barely comes out on top. (My hostile bias of Shangri-la probably swayed this vote to some degree, but Pareidolia and the 31-79 jGB215 are some of the only good things I enjoy about the map.)
  18. The order I buy perks and the order I open generators is different, because I'm a madman Open: Stamin-Up -> Speed Cola -> Juggernog (keeping two of the three doors in Helipad area closed off is pretty nice, and opening the left door makes less possible zombie spawns near the Crafting Table near the Barracks door) Buy: Speed Cola -> Stamin-Up -> Juggernog
  19. Welcome aboard, everyone! Glad to see so many new people in the community Hopefully a lot of you introduce yourselves here or make a separate post in Introductions, @anonymouspretty much nailed the rest on the head so I won't waste time repeating it but you should definitely check those topics out even just to see the discussions that can come from them! Sometimes even the simplest responses can spark some insane levels of conversation, so feel free to hop in! If I may add one last thing, I would highly recommend checking out @RadZakpak's take on the Zombies Storyline, which follows the official timeline and lore with some creative liberties as well! He's worked/is working very hard on it and has just recently finished Part 1 of 5, and it's quite a lot to read already being the culmination of at least a few years!
  20. A relatively short story (compared to @RadZakpak's behemoth of a story which somewhat inspired me into planning some Zombies stories myself) that will explore a fan theory I have spent months working on making a skeleton for, building an "additional chapter" of the Kronorium Timeline - the very first one. As such, a lot of the time that went into planning this was trying to make sure the details do not intersect or retcon anything mentioned in "canonized" lore. Obviously, I will make mistakes both grammatically and lore-wise and hope to improve both as I progress with it, but more importantly I hope the story catches at least a few people's attention! The story in progress can be found here! (Only Prologue so far, working on Part I.) Prologue – Primordials: "In the beginning - and believe me, there was a beginning - everything was in its proper place." Part I – Creation: Coming hopefully soon! Part II – : TBA Part III – : TBA Part IV – : TBA Part V – : TBA
  21. A new Season means new Onslaught maps that only a fraction of the community can even play! Only one map has been released this time as opposed to two, so not much Intel at the moment but this will be regularly updated (so long as the Intel actually registers, unlike a certain map that rhymes with Frexpress). [On a side note, if any Treyarch officials actually look at these on a whim, can you please make the text box slightly larger so I don't have to take extra screenshots because one line goes off the page? Please? It's a pain to keep the screenshots organized after a while.] Omega (3/3) Documents (3) "Laos Breach Report" - APOCALYPSE "A Luxury I Cannot Afford" - APOCALYPSE "Laos Operations Map" - APOCALYPSE
