I'm going to stream-of-consciousness a guide 'cause I haven't slept in two days and I need something to do. If there are typos or whatnot, bear with me. I'll fix them later.

Or not. It is a mystery.


Important Concepts: how play gaem
Let me make something perfectly clear: You are a support.

I'll repeat that.

You are a support.

Your job will involve a lot of murder, yes, but mostly in the vein of murdering things before they murder you or your allies or crippling things before they murder you or your allies. The Armsalt would be largely useless if not for the very important disables tied to his abilities and you must never, ever forget that.

Several other classes have a higher DPS than you do, and the fact that you have a super high DPS rating is essentially a means to an end - it makes sure you level quickly enough to put your stopping power to use. It's also a method of survival - the Armsalt is not exactly...

So, NOTD 2's class unlocks are outlined here. We're shooting to have at least the Rifleman and the Medic to be done for the Alpha, and from there we'll implement the other Tier 1 classes (Assault, Recon, Demo).

Once the Tier 1 classes are all squared away, well, I'm kind of at an impasse on where to go next. Obviously I'll be moving on to Tier 2, but the question is which class comes first?

I leave that to you fine folks.

I'll tally all of the votes when I actually start work on Tier 2.

Blizzard's Free Arcade Launch Marathon!
The Endless Nightmare!

Friday, January 31 from 12pm to 12am (UTC-5 US East)

StarCraft II's Arcade is now free to play, and Blizzard wants to show off the best of the best with an event similar to the Holiday Marathon they hosted. For our part, I will be streaming a series of various NOTD games from the NA server (hopefully each company, several nightmares, and at least one survival) on my stream (yes, the one from Movie Night) for twelve straight hours which will be periodically be invaded by a guest streamer and broadcast by Blizzard themselves to potentially millions of people across the globe. This is an amazing opportunity to show off our game, our community, and our support. I will need many volunteers to round out the roster and, in...

So with Patch 2.1 going live, we've been getting a lot of new players. As things go, a reasonable portion of these players happen to be girls. Unfortunately, a lot of these girls seem to be getting harassed or stalked by some community members. So much so that I've gotten six messages about it today.

Let me make myself perfectly clear: The NOTD community is intended to be a safe and comfortable one for all audiences.

If I find that you are causing a problem and making someone feel unsafe? I will personally ensure you are banned from not only the community, but NOTD and NOTD 2 as well. Forever. If someone provides me with evidence that you've been harassing them, you're gone permanently.

There is no excuse for this sort of behavior. I shouldn't have to hear about a 14 year old girl getting dick pic offers from a 25 year old man. It is beyond ridiculous that I even have to make this post.

For those of you that this post is referencing...
