Hello everyone! I've got some exciting news for you all!
The NOTD community is moving to TeamSpeak 3 as their chosen Voice Chat program in anticipation for the launch of NOTD 2!
We're very excited about TeamSpeak as it offers a lot more opportunities to us rather than the Mumble server we were using. We will be shutting down our Mumble server on the 31st of March 2014, after which point it will no longer be in use and we encourage all of the community to download TeamSpeak 3 (which is free) and join the movement!
You can find the NOTD TeamSpeak information required to connect right here!

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.
HOW TO ARMS ASSAULT
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...
Hello, friends! As you may or may not know, NOTD 2's Kickstarter was successfully funded a short time ago. Due to popular demand, we are extending the fundraiser and the rewards program until the end of March. To contribute, simply make a donation and you will receive the relevant reward based on how much you donate.
The available rewards are as follows:
PRIVATE: Pledge $5 or more
Your name in the credits and the satisfaction of making NOTD II the best it can be.
PRIVATE FIRST CLASS: Pledge $10 or more
A sidearm of your choice (Pistol, Combat Knife, Tomahawk, Magnum Revolver, ect), named to your specifications. Custom Color
A custom player identification color, mixed by you.
CORPORAL: Pledge $15 or more
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! or 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...
