With Kith's wheeling and dealing bringing in additional development, and the additional behind-the-scenes activity going on, I'm going to step back into the light. Going to do some serious cleaning and upgrading on the forum and start working towards community initiatives beyond just the forum and SC2.

When we started all of this seven years ago, most of us were still teenagers or bumming around at university. The transition to adulthood curbed our ambitions and consumed our time just as we hit our peak, but we've never lost sight of the dream we shared.

In my neverending march towards system simplification, I have come to the conclusion that the weight system is an unnecessary complication, so I'mma kill it.

WHAT'S CHANGING:
  • Items and Weapons will no longer have Weight. This means they will not reduce movement speed while held or equipped.
  • Ammunition will no longer have Weight. As a replacement deterrent for hoarding ammo, players will be limited to 40 Magazines equipped at one time.

Class Icons will be used during the selection phase and on the Unit Information Panel. Unlike the previous incarnation, they will not change based on the Ultimate chosen by the player (that's what Portraits are for). Additionally, this batch wasn't made in Paint.

Pretty pictures of the various class's faces! These will be going on the Team Sidebar on the right side of the screen to show who picked what classes, with variants based on what ultimate was chosen.

Version 1 Items
Consumables, Armors, Ammo Mods, and Accessories

Many changes have been made to the items of NOTD 2 since the alpha. This thread is to catalog the changes made and to make note of changes to come.

Visual Overhaul
First up on the list of changes is that the various item crates will be getting a facelift:

Canceled Items
As testing progressed and designs matured, it became evident that a large portion of the original item list was either superfluous or infringed on a class's given role. To that end, the following items are being removed:...
