    Introducing the NOTD Boot Camp Program!

    My name is Daedalus (in game Deadalus) I'm one of the new Teamspeak 3 Moderators. I also have been working on developing a fun, user-friendly, target focused NOTD Boot Camp Program - BE THE CHANGE! Boot Camp 101: From Green to Killing Machine.

    I wish to give back to this community for both the positive and negative I've personally experienced.

    LilMissHumpz, Niteshade, Blaqk, VickHead and Extifer are also the best people to speak to about this and will be able to assist when I'm offline.

    I am aware there have been past programs and members of the community who have not had a positive first impression of the game. I believe it is safe to say NOTD does have a high learning aptitude and when new players join a pub and get their face eaten within the first 5 mins, its frustrating and often turns people off from further attempts to learn how to play. It's also a numbers game where not everyone will be COACH-ABLE and take the time to learn. We need to change the so called stigma of "elitism" and show there are those willing to offer their time to teach all types of new players.

    When I first found this game, I was fortunate enough to meet a player who was patient, knowledgeable and willing to offer his time tohelp me learn this great co-operative zombies survival game. I was horrible, died a lot...but I stuck with it and wanted to get better no matter how long it took. (Thanks Meatfish xo)

    Utilizing TeamSpeak

    I see this time just prior to NOTD2 release as a great opportunity to really grow and maintain a new generation of community members by getting them off on the right foot as early as possible. Learning good in game habits, being COACHABLE, and willing to take honest constructive criticism in a non-verbal abusive environment. If we can use the resources available to us like Teamspeak 3, we will be able to establish a place where a broad spectrum of newbie players and skill levels can progress as they gain more familiarity with the in-game basic tactics, including, how to knife, sprint, equip weapons, ammo and coping with the fast paced story line.

    Class Specialists List

    Lastly I would like to extend an invitation to people who are great role-models, patient, knowledgeable and willing to help sustain and grow our overall membership. These individual in Teamspeak 3, will be referred to as Veteran Class Specialist (VCS).

    Currently we are looking for individuals comfortable in both talent trees to train the following Marine classes:

    Made this thread pretty + added logo.

    The entire NOTD Teamspeak staff completely support this program.
    Please send all interested zombie slayers, both recruits and trainers, our way so we can assist in setting up an affective communication method between the team to use with each other and in-game.

    I feel the most comfortable teaching/tutoring as Rifleman, Medic, Recon, and Demo. They're all classes that I love either tree, and can never decide which tree to pick, should I have the option of picking. However, there are a few classes that I spec in only one tree because I hate the other. Order Flame, Ground Support Chem Ex, and Arty Forward Obs.

    (I can fill pretty much every class role and I know what they are supposed to do, but those are what I would say I am good enough to teach.)

    Whoever beats all the trainers, gets to be the very best.

    This Boot Camp Program can cater for individuals, who just want to improve their knowledge in a class by learning from one of the vets (Veteran Class Specialists).


    We can also do storylines and teach people the routes and ropes of each story line.

    To ensure the quality of our Veterans who will be teaching willing participants, unless myself or someone else already on the VCS list can vouch for them and their abilities, they will most likely not be taken on board the program.

    I can help with Medic, Commando, and Psi Ops. I am reasonably proficient in either tree for all 3 classes, although I'm best at Field Aid, Operations, and Inception tree for the three, respectively.
