    Rust and all the Chaos

    Hey everyone! Long time no talk. Since I've left the OD community (and a good portion of the time while I was here) I've been playing a lot of Rust with some friends. So much to the point that the most recent server I play on actually asked me and now one of my friends to join their admin team. If you like rust, or wanna think about giving it a try. Our server is pretty nice. Fairly helpful people. Responsive and active admins. Active PvP etc... For those who don't know what Rust is. It's a sandbox survival game where you spawn into a procedurally generated map and try and survive the best you can. There are tons of building options, guns, gear etc... If people want to come to check out our Rust server hit me up or ask here and I'll give you the details. 🙂

    Expansion of OD into a new game

    A handful of us played the game for a while some time ago. The problem we ended up finding with the game was the lack of group content among other things. I don't know if they'd be willing to play it again. But @Altros(OD) @Terra @Aerineth(OD) @Bahafresh(OD) and @Remsen all played in the group. I'm pretty sure there were more people. I think @Triny(OD) played for a bit as well.

    Overdose Reunion

    Btw, dave. Reclamation isn't a new idea for the R&R committee. 😛 I worked with Badboi and a few other people when I was still here and in the R&R to send out dozens of emails and messages to older members and Dsled out recruits. But I'm glad someone else is picking up the initiative. Great job dave 🙂
  4. Hello OD Gamers! After a long time, I've finally gotten around to uploading the Sassy(OD) interview. With as interesting and loved of a member as sassy is. It's 100% worth the listen. So take some time, grab a drink and listen to one of our best generals sit down for a chat. http://theodreview.overdosed.net/2018/07/09/behind-the-mic-interview-9/
  5. Hello OD Gamers! This one is a long time coming. Now that I'm finally overcoming the virus that decided to take place in my lungs. I've decided to go ahead and get a 2nd interview going alongside the one @MelodicRose(OD) is planning on still doing with @Triny(OD). If y'all have any questions for @SupremeJester please leave them here.
  6. I recently got involved with a convention/festival called Magfest. THey have multiple Cons/Fests through out the year and i'm apart of mostly their Tech Ops Dept. We have Regular shirts for the department that say Tech ops and shit. But nothing specifically for our Night Ops Team. I was wondering if someone would be willing to put together a shirt design for our Tech Ops - Night Ops Team. We'd be willing to buy to buy the shirts from your store if you have one rather than us having to go and get them made ourselves. Either way it's not a huge deal.
  7. @Goten(OD) feel free to message me your gamer tag and I'll add you.
  8. Hello OD Gamers! It's been over 2 years (862 days as of this post) since I joined OD Gaming as an official member. A lot has happened since then. I've helped lead several divisions, I've created one of my own. I've made some great friends and have done a lot. I brought back the OD News Letter (even though most of this year it's been fairly inactive). I helped create the R&R squad that's now a committee with @CompFreak(OD). I started the rules committee alongside @Badboi(OD) and several other members who joined once it was formed. I also created and help closely monitor and support our now official OD discord sever that sees more and more activity the longer we've had it. These are just some of the things I've poured my heart and soul into over the time I've been here. But with the good comes the bad. During my time here I had a problem learning how to balance my time in OD with my IRL responsibilities. I let myself get overwhelmed by the workload I put on my shoulders and always told myself I had to do it for it to be right. It wasn't until recently that I learned that I needed to start putting myself first or I would lose myself and both my mental and physical health would suffer for it and they have. That is why for those of you who know me and those who don't. I've taken such a large step back recently from the forefront of the community. I used to be the first person to jump on a new project or to help get a division going. I was also happy to dedicate endless hours to try and help improve OD Gaming as a community. But I learned that this wasn't feasible for me anymore. So I'd like to re-introduce myself. I'm Xayj. I'm a casual gamer that loves playing games with friends and chatting until the sun goes down( and sometimes back up again). I wear my heart of my sleeve and I'm loyal to a fault. Lately, you would find that I've been playing a lot of single player games. I just beat the new God of War and have been playing farcry 5. I spend a LOT of my free time enjoying as much content as I can from the company Rooster Teeth and their various groups. I'm a huge film buff and see as many movies as I practically can. When I have the attention span for it. I try my best to keep up with all my favorite books and anime as well. I hope if during my more inactive period I've left some of you with a bad image of me, you might give me a second chance at a first impression. If not that's all good and well. Not everyone is going to like me. Either way. I'm marking this as a clean slate for myself in OD. Going forward my main goal is to spend as much time bettering myself as a person and spending more time with all my friends and doing the things I love. I hope that as I did when I joined OD, I can be friends with as many of you as I can.

    Xayj(OD) 2.0 (Re-introduction)

    The love for purple is something we share. It's actually my favorite color as well. I don't remember exactly when you came in. But I know it was before I was a general.

    Xayj(OD) 2.0 (Re-introduction)

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! No, lol I just felt that It's been too long and I'm not around on TS or playing games with as many divisions as I used to. So getting to know people the way I used to is a much more difficult task. I figure writing a re-introduction was a good way to reach out to the community in a more passive way than my usual in your face I'm xayj here .i am, talk to me method. While I do love helping the community. Right now becoming a general again isn't really something I'm even close to considering. Stepping down was a hard decision but one I needed to make. I'm just happy to be around and play some games right now. When/if I'm ready to be a general again. I'll have the support of the community.
  12. Hey @Goten(OD) I'm eventually going to be picking up SoD2 on xboxPC for the play anywhere service. I loved the first game even though i never beat it. I'm looking forward to playing with people.

    Automatic DSL resets

    I agree with hikato here. While having every member we ever recruit go to the website and check things like Promotions; Trial Members; Website News; Etc... would be great. But, not every member is going to have an interest in our community past the gaming and friendship aspect. Which honestly is fine in my opinion. From time to time we'll see the members that put in the extra initiative and check the website consistently for updates and put in the extra effort and general go above and beyond in the community. Those are the members that become our future officers, generals and maybe someday commanders.

    D2 Defunct?

    The post doesn't necessarily be deleted. But destiny hasn't been my concern for some time now nor do I still have rights to the forum. I believe last admin meeting the division was removed from division status and so it also shouldn't still have a division forum. Also, according to the website. It wasn't reverted to a squad as it's not on the squad page. So really it should no longer have a public forum or any assets. @Terra @Badboi(OD) @Aerineth(OD) Could y'all shed some light as to destiny 2 and its status? It technically still has its spot in teamspeak. It still has a division level forum. But it was removed from the division page of our website. Thanks!

    D2 Defunct?

    @Purplez(OD) I appreciate you trying to help. But the 3 of us haven't led or have been involved with destiny for some time now. @Hellbazer(OD) was the last official leader of the game. To address your questions @mrxinu(OD). The division started going down hill during the micro transaction blow up. The in game community was in a up roar and soon much of the player base disappeared. It got so bad it was hard to find people to populate pvp matches nvm even try to recruit. It was at that time myself and melrak decided to move on from the game. We've lost interest in it and weren't particularly impressed with the first DLC. We found hellbazer interested in taking over the division. But I believe he had some issues with getting the recruitment going. Which honestly I wasn't surprised with. As I said the in game community was and still is in a pretty bad state. Anywho. If you're looking for someone to play with. I believe hellbazer still plays. He'd be the best place to start.

    Changes are coming!

    Hello OD Gamers! Before I went on my time on IA. I had made the decision to step away from my role in the newsletter as a content creator. Going forward I will be moving up into the role of Editor-in-Cheif. I will be making it my sole job to help edit content that comes in. Come up with new content for the newsletter and make that content happen. But, I can't do that without help. @SupremeJester had agreed to come on and do interviews going forward. Now that I'm back I'll back doing my best to making sure content comes out and is advertised throughout the community so that everyone can enjoy the time and effort that our fellow members have put in for your enjoyment. As always there's always room for more help around here. If you want to contribute in any way. Please send me a message or comment here and I'll get back to you ASAP.

  20. The HoTs Division has posted the rules/expectations bellow for review. Rules 1. All Community Rules Apply at all times. 2.BM(Bad Manners) will not be tolerated. We will be using a strikes system for reports of BM. For every strike that is given to a member after the BM is proven. They will have some case of administrative action taken against them. Anymore than 3 strikes against a member and that member will be banned from HotSOD and possibly ODGC as a whole. 1st strike: Warning can be issued by a single leader 2nd strike: Warning must be agreed upon by all Leaders 3rd Strike: Member will be interviewed by the leadership and the decision to remove the member or not will be made afterwords. Strikes may be removed over time based on the behavior of the member. 3.All members who wish to participate in Division/Community events (e.g. ranked games, in-houses, prized tournaments etc…) will be required to use our agreed upon VOIP. Discord/Teamspeak for that Game/Event. Expectations Members will be expected not just join and disturb members playing in DnD labeled channels. Instead they will be expected to: Send a single message and wait for a reply. If important join the channel and let the person know you need to talk and wait quietly. If important and the person is a division leader/officer+ (and you’re on discord) use the @ command to poke them a single time to get their attention if the prior two have failed.
  21. The HoTs Division rules are under quarterly review. Any changes will be posted here.

    Revival of Community Meetings

    I'm looking forward to seeing these meetings start up again. I'll offer the same thing I offered the last person hosting the meetings. If you ever need someone else to host the meeting last minute, feel free to poke me about it. I'm more than happy to run the community meetings secondary to the person taking charge of it. Nice job snipe, can't wait to see this come to fruition.
  24. Hello OD Gamers, welcome to Heroes of the Storm! Before you go off on your own and enjoy the vast wonders our little community offer. We'd like you to spend a few minutes and reading through this info to get to know what is what around here. Overdosed Gaming is a unique community in the sense that we've been around for 16+ years. In that time the community has largely evolved in some ways to accommodate our members' needs and to keep us going with the times. We always strive to create a safe, enjoyable and most importantly here in HoTs a friendly atmosphere for our members to exist in. Here's some info we think you should know to make your transition into the community a little easier. Who are the HoTs leaders? The HoTs leaders are currently, Melrak(OD) Lexer(OD) Q. I have a question that the current online division leader doesn't specialize in. Do I have to wait for the proper one to come online? A. NO! You can go to any of the division leaders here in HoTs with anything at all. We'll do our very best to answer your question, or make sure we can point you in the right direction to get it. Q. I was given an answer from Melrak that I don't like. Am I allowed to take my problem to another division leader to possibly get a different answer? A. Yes and No. While all of us are equally division leaders. We still follow the ranking structure of our clan, therefore an administrative decision can only be overturned by a member of higher rank. In this case to overrule Melrak's administrative decision (e.g. The banning of a member) someone of a higher rank would have to do it. This does not mean that if you talk to Xayj about a decision Melrak made he wouldn't be able to convince him to change his mind. While the division leaders are of all different ranks. We're leaders together because we respect one another's opinion. (TLDR: Don't ever be afraid to go to another leader if you feel you still need more information.) Q. How do I go about recruiting here in HoTs? A. Great question! We have a separate topic that you can read about recruiting in depth right ===> HERE <=== Q. Do I have any responsibilities as a simple "enlisted" member here in OD Gaming? A. Wow! You're just full of great questions aren't ya? We just happen to have a super informative topic about that very such thing you can view by clicking Right Here! Q. I have a friend I want to try to get into playing HoTs with the OD Community. Do you have anything I can show them to possibly convince them OD HoTs is more than just another Heroes community? A. Yes, we sure do! You can find information about our great division giveaway in a post made by Melrak & Xayj, right over HURR! We hope by the end of this post you at least now have a little more of an understanding of your role in the crazy community we have. But, never fear! If you're still lost and have NO IDEA what the hell we're going on about here. Come find us on teamspeak or Discord(you can reach us by using the @Division Leader(Destiny).
  25. As a member of HoTs, you have certain responsibilities depending on the rank tier you fall in. There is also some acronyms that you need to understand. DSL: (Days since login) - Our website(Overdosed.net) keeps track of how often our member(s) login. Every rank tier has a limit of how long you can go without logging in. Enlisted - 14 days to log in (disabled on the 15th day) Warrant Officer - 10 days to log in (disabled on the 11th day) Officer/Sr.Officer - 6 days to log in (disabled on the 7th day) General/Commander - not held to DSL standards Responsibilities that are reflected in your rank. Enlisted - As an enlisted member of the Overdosed Gaming Community. The responsibilities you have are extremely low. We only ask a handful of things from you. 1. You remember to log in to Overdosed.net at least once every 14 days. So you don't get disabled. 2. You participate in your main game, which in this case is HoTs. This is all that's expected of you for at least a month. After 4 weeks in OD, you'll have made your way to Staff Sgt. via the automatic promotion system. Once you reach this rank, you're allowed to ask for recruitment rights. Once given these rights, you're enabled to invite people into the in-game clan as well as the main website(overdosed.net). Also with Staff Sgt. You gain the ability to vote for your fellow member(s) promotions(which can be found here http://overdosed.net/index.php?view=Console&cmd=Approval&target=Promotions) Regardless of whether you're voting for a member you put up. Or a member that is already up for promotion. You're required to give 3 valid reasons to positive vote and 1 valid reason to negatively vote. If you wish to abstain from voting either way, but still feel the need to comment on their promotion. You have the ability to give a neutral vote. Warrant Officer - As a W.O. of the HoTs division. You'll be held to the same standard as an enlisted. On top of the responsibilities you'll already be used to, there are a few that are specific to now being a W.O. 1. You're expected to be more active in recruiting. 2. You're expected to know how to use your console.(If you have any questions on how to use it. Please feel free to ask any of the division leaders) 3. You're expected to know and if need be enforce the rules of the HoTs division and the OD Gaming Community. 4. We would like you to be active on the forum. But this is not an expectation for W.O. But a nice add-on for anyone who wants to continue to advance beyond into the Officer ranks. Officer+ - You're an officer(or higher). Do your job. Don't make the division leader(s) life hard.
