  1. Hi! Welcome to OD. I'm Zakspeeed, the Division Leader for Halo. I can handle your recruitment so you can start gaming with us. Add me at JKTwice#0437 on Discord so I can help you along and get you set up.
  2. Edit: By popular request teabagging will be allowed. This is generally viewed as apart of the culture and not very toxic compared to how it was viewed years ago. However, more traditional examples of BM will continue to be punished. Don't be a dick.
  3. Hello everyone, Lately we've been getting plenty of recruits, and that's great! The recruits we have now are quite active, but aren't resetting their DSL. So, I've decided to make a little guide on the best ways you can reset your DSL and how to make it a lot more convenient. Bookmark the home page. This is pretty easy to do, as it just involves you going to the website and clicking a star in the top right portion of the browser that you're using. You're also placing a sort of reminder for yourself by doing this, and eventually it becomes habit. Save your account and password to a browser's keychain. This way you don't have to type in everything when logging into your account. On top of that, click the "Remember Me?" box. If you click on the bookmark you made in the first suggestion then you will reset your DSL, making it so you never have to click Log In at all. (For Enlisted and up only) When you are a full-fledged member of OD, you can now access your console and link your account to Discord. To do this, first on the overdosed.net home page click on "Console" at the top of the page. Next, click on Third-Party Integrations and click on Link Discord. After that you will be prompted to sign into Discord. Doing so will link your account to the webpage, making it so that whenever you type something into the Overdosed Discord you're marked with 0 DSL. Hopefully, this makes things a bit easier. DSL sounds like it's a big hassle, but in actuality it only takes maybe a second to log in and reset your DSL. Keep that DSL low, and Happy Gaming, Zakspeeed(OD)
  4. I know I already said hello in the Discord but I want to take another opportunity to say welcome back. Take your time getting back into the swing of things and don't overstress yourself. We'll all be here for you.
  5. Hello everyone! Welcome back to OD Halo events. I don't know how much you missed these but considering the way activity is going I think people need something to get excited about again. For those who just want the schedule, here it is below: 7/4 - Happy 4th of July! No event 7/7 - Bungie Day. BTB Matchmaking, All Games @ 8:00 PM CST (9:00 PM EST) 7/11 - Custom Games, Halo Reach @ 2:00 PM CST (3:00 PM EST) 7/14 - Halo 3 Launch Party. TBD 7/18 - Custom Games, Halo Reach and Halo 3 @ 2:00 PM CST (3:00 PM EST) 7/20 to 7/27 - Xbox Summer Game Fest w/ Halo Infinite news 7/25 - BTB Matchmaking, All Games @ 2:00 PM CST (3:00 PM EST) 8/1 - Custom Games, Halo Reach and Halo 3 @ 2:00 PM CST (3:00 PM EST) With that out of the way, lets get down to the real meat of this month's article, where I'll talk about Halo 3 and how I will handle people joining lobbies from now on. Halo 3 Launch Party At this moment, there is currently not a launch date for Halo 3 , but I'm betting it will be at least before August comes. There is now a confirmed release date of 7/14 @ 10:00 AM PST. Halo 3 contains a lot of the same custom games that you may be familiar with in Halo Reach, such as Duck Hunt and Demolition Derby. Halo 3 is an overall much more casual game than CE and 2, so I expect that we will be gaining many more members who will want to experience custom games and dicking about once more, which is our bread and butter at Overdosed. So no need to fear, this lull in activity will be over soon enough. I highly doubt this division will die before Halo 3 launches, and even before Infinite launches. (Please 343 bring some good gameplay footage to Xbox 20/20. We are starving at this point). Hopefully the download process for H3 goes over much more smoothly than H2's did, because that was a literal nightmare. Halobase.net From now on, all players will be joining via halobase.net instead of me having to ask what your gamertag is and hoping the invite goes through. If you are on the Steam platform, joining our events is much more convenient than it was before. All you have to do is go to this website (halobase.net) and click on my game which will have Overdosed in the title so it's easy to pick out from other servers. There will be green text in the bottom right corner of the server invite with the steam logo next to it. Clicking on it will put you into my custom games/matchmaking/campaign lobby and you will be good to go. For those on the Microsoft Store platform, simply go in-game, click on your nameplate or the square friends icon in the top right corner, and use the Find Player function to join my game. It will be set to be an open lobby. This system also makes inviting your friends or people from the Halo Discord much easier as they do not have to hunt down my Gamertag by swapping Discord messages. They can click on an invite link. Conclusion Well, that's about all I got for you guys this time around. July will hopefully be a prosperous month for not only Overdosed Gaming, but also Halo as a whole. What's good for Halo is good for us, and Halo 3 seems to be that ticket that can carry our division to new heights. So, I'll see you all at the events and hope that you all have a wonder rest of the 4th of July (and hopefully you're also practicing social distancing). Take care, Zakspeeed(OD)
  6. Saw a video on this yesterday. I mean, if you’re getting chaffing and infections that’s your fault for not taking care properly.
  7. Hey everyone, Some of you may be wondering if there's going to be events in the future. Let me just say right now that yes, there will be. But, at the moment I'm a little burnt out on them and want to chill for a bit and try some new things. So, here's what's going to happen for events: 1. July will be a normal month, with scheduled Halo 3 and Reach-centered events. Expect typical Forge silliness and something new coming up if the members increase the way I think they will. 2. For the rest of June, I will occasionally host some game nights at random when I feel like it. These could be at literally any time and could be literally anything, but I will give a day's notice. 3. Morgan won't host anything until further notice. He's basically gone MIA and hasn't been pinged on anything in weeks, and we don't just mean Discord. We literally mean anything. So, in terms of events it's up to me and JD every now and then. Here's to hoping it's an extended vacation. 4. With Forge coming out, we will make a push towards Forge-centric competitions. So for the end of July our goal is a Forge-build contest where you send in your submissions for whatever you've created. We want to avoid what happened with Conquest as in my opinion it was basically a glorified Halo 2 map rotation slayer server. There's not enough people to support an event like that right now. Also, the division is not dying. The people who have been trickling off have been inactive for weeks anyways. So in terms of population it has been like this for about 2 weeks anyways. Doesn't mean we shouldn't recruit people, however. So, for those wanting to get your friends into Halo consider having them join OD. After all, you'd be in the running for some cool prizes like gift cards and promotions! Every group goes through a lull like this, and considering what's happened to many Halo clans it's impressive that we haven't fallen apart, and more so that we're still doing fairly well right now. So rest easily because Overdosed isn't going anywhere. We may be old-fashioned, but we are structurally sound. Have a great rest of your day, Zakspeeed(OD)
  8. Well, after playing for a couple of days and getting to level 47 so far as a Bouncer, I can safely say this game is fantastic. The Microsoft Store then proceeds to take a shit on it. I've had countless issues with launching the game via the Store. It's easily one of the worst pieces of software available in terms of usability and downloading things at all. I have to pause my downloads multiple times in order for the download to complete otherwise the Store will close out. Also, when PSO2 does break, it's difficult to uninstall. You have to give admin permissions to run this game, of course there's going to be issues doing anything with it. At the moment, I'm trying to use PSO2 Tweaker to install and launch the game there. Aside from this, there's rumors of a Steam release (please SEGA). I'll do another lap of in-clan advertising when I find an easy way to install this game without a boatload of issues. If you want to join, reference the following thread
  9. Hello everyone, The Alliance is now up under the name of OverDosed and we can begin to recruit members to organize far more easily. If you are already playing and wish to join up, great! Leave your username in the comments and I'll add you to the Aliiance. For people who want to get in on the action and don't know how, here's some extra information for you to get an idea of what the game is about: You can get the game for free on the Microsoft Store and then download in the Xbox app on PC. Using a friend referral code will grant you an ARKS White Badge. Turn it in to a specific NPC to turn it into a Blue Badge that you can exchange for items in the Shopping Plaza. (Your friend's Ship: Ship 02: Ur Your friend's Player ID: 10765404) There's multiple classes to play, and you can change class at any time. Leveling is fairly fast so far, as long as you do your Main Quests and Client Orders (Bounties). If you have trouble installing the game, then use the PSO2 Tweaker here. Works for both JP and NA versions. (I play on the NA servers). There's plenty of tutorials in game and on the Internet to help explain the various mechanics in the game. The endgame is not loot, but fashion. People who like decorating their character in games like Destiny, WoW, and TF2 will have a lot to love here in customization. This guide will walk you through a general path on leveling early game and beyond. Extremely helpful for people just starting out. Go to Cofy, do Afin's CO's, etc. For builds, go here (these are all for the JP version of the game however) I hope to see you there! Zakspeeed(OD)
  10. I wish I could edit my posts, but I can't. So the guide will be down here. This guide will walk you through a general path on leveling early game and beyond. Extremely helpful for people just starting out. Go to Cofy, do Afin's CO's, etc. The Alliance will also be up soon, at least when my game finishes reinstalling since it decided not to launch one day due to random privileges or something stupid.
  11. You can get the game off the Microsoft Store on PC or in the Xbox Dashboard on Xbox. The game is cross platform as MERCIA has said.
  12. Some extra information: You can get the game for free on the Microsoft Store and then download in the Xbox (Beta) app on PC. Using a friend referral code will grant you an ARKS White Badge.

  13. Also, if you do decide to join, then use this information for the Friend Referral system. You get some free items for doing so. Your friend's Ship: Ship 02: Ur Your friend's Player ID: 10765404
  14. Is anyone interested in playing this? It's free-to-play with a (very) optional premium membership and seems to have a wealth of content with a fairly high skill ceiling. It focuses on characters doing as much damage as physically possible, and the artstyle is so cool! I play on Ship 2: Ur, so if anyone is interested in playing with me just give me a shout.

  15. I’d be interested in this. Interaction in the community is always good, and right now I rarely hear from people outside of my division.
