Welcome to our crazy, wild bunch!
N-o-F.com was launched in 1999 but we have been doing online gaming since the early nineties, with games like DOOM. Corridor 7, Terminator Rampage, original Warcraft, Seige: Dogs of War, Laser Squad, and more!
Our Defiance group is growing fast as the game becomes more popular. We are holding on to some really awesome gear so, if you need something, let us know before it gets sold or resourced. Here are a few links to plug in:
NOTE: If you are a blogger, we will be happy to add you to our new blogroll and site recommendations. We could also use more contributors. Let us know!
Also subscribe to our Yahoo! Group for our mailing list, photo sharing, polls, and more. We are open to suggestions and don't be afraid to take some initiative. We have tons of resources to get everyone working together!

Rage Of Bahamut Hits 6 Million Players.. PLUS!
Wed Apr 17, 2013 Posted By: Yogizilla
A couple of months ago we saw an awesome celebration with the FREE ten-card super CP, which came with tons of Cure Water, Bazaar Tickets, and even some Holy Powder. This kicked off a slew of new releases, including the beautifully-drawn Birthday variety of classic cards like Lily and Gigas!
Today, the "Rage of Bahamut Management Team" (a.k.a. sometimes too greedy three-man team at Cygames LOL) announced another awesome milestone:
Over six million players now on Rage of Bahamut!
Now, granted, half of those accounts, if not more, are abandoned accounts, mules, and alts.. And, of the remainder, I reckon only 10-20% are super active (logon twice a day or better). Maybe 50-70% are reasonably active (logon three to five times a week).
I'd be curious to know what the actual active member base looks like, as these numbers sound as inflated as Facebook's figures. To put it into perspective, the sister game to R.O.B., also on the Mobage gaming network, is Marvel War of Heroes. That game recently hit 2MM users. In many ways, W.O.H. has better events and more generous rewards (CP also seem to have a MUCH higher drop rate for non-crap cards). Most new features and ideas are tested on WOH first and then adopted on ROB so it'd be interesting to see how both games grow.
In any case, the real news for those that don't care about the business side of gaming is that Cygames has offered an SSR card for FREE. That's right: a base card that can be used to make your very own legend card is now yours for free. As usual, this is a restricted event card so you'll be lucky if you can even sell it on the bazaar.
I didn't look at the skill yet cause I don't want to tease myself but I reckon it has a massive skill for the Dragon's Awakening stamina event likely coming up this weekend (Cygames believes we all have no lives and wants to keep us broke). I bet the secondary event skill is a big boost at best. Hopefully, it is a great boost because I am tired of these event cards that devalue right after events are done.
For example, I bought a 10/10 proper evo Teena to rock out the Stampede of the Goblins event only to have it drop from 50-70 HP to around 25-45 HP. Tsk tsk...
Regardless, we in N-o-F, formerly Wizards O' Thine 1st Order, may be fashionably late but we LOOOOOOOOOVE stamina events and free stuff. Let's do this!!

Last Day of Rage od Bahamut Not-So-Holy Wars XII
Tue Apr 16, 2013 Posted By: Yogizilla
I love this pseudo TCG mainly becausd the communty rocks, the artwork pwns, and the layers of strategy really satisfy. Today is the last day of Holy Wars XII (12, for the uninitiated). Our newly nipplified clan/orded has mixed feelings.We are rocking but this schedule is wack and the rewards stink...
As with any freemium game, the people that dump money have an unfair advantage. Sadly, cygames hss been gettin a little too greedy.. And it shoes.
Expect a blog rant and maybe a review soon at http://DuelPassOnline.wordpress.com yo!
Nipply Gaming Rages On: Get Dat Loot, Yo!
Sun Apr 7, 2013 Posted By: Yogizilla
Less than 24 hours left in the latest Rage of Bahamut event. Keep poking those raid bosses with 1AP attacks, especially Odin. Get your Battle Impulse up and you can score some sweet loot from event finale rewards and item exchanges!
Not on Rage yet? All you need is an Android or Apple iOS device and you can join the fun. Use referral code "frv11711" before ending the tutorial to score some extra phat loot.
Speaking of loot, we've been getting back into Mass Effect and Battlefield 3. The beauty of ME3 is that all multiplayer updates are FREE. Tons of loot in ME3.. BF3, not so much, but still one of the best shooters around. Call of Duty? Meh.
And, of course, there is the king of looting (FPS) games - Borderlands 2! Come join us on XBox LIVE.. View NoF Roster for a partial list of our active gamers.. Or just add me, Yogizilla, and we will jam.
Last but not least, Happy Wars is worth checking out. It's a FREE game for XBox LIVE with a Castle Crashers style MOBA experience waiting. Lots of looting in this game too, y0!
...So, what are you waiting for? ;o)

Join Us On League of Legends!
Sat Jul 28, 2012 Posted By: Yogizilla
This is the game that has overthrown WoW as the most played MPOG - League of Legends (a.k.a. LoL)!
If you dig MOBAs, DotA, or like RPGs that are action-oriented, this may be the game for you.. And it's FREE to play!
Use the link and we'll both get some bonus points for use in-game. You can buy champs and special items. It's pretty neat!
LoL is all the fun of MMORPGs without the hardcore grinding and broken marriages. Expect a long-overdue review at http://duelpassonline.com soon enough. 8)

If you were having trouble recently with our forums, they have been resolved.. That also means we can go back to posting posts weekly-ish.
Thanks r0r - Andy is the man (he's pretty damn good at LoL too)!
So, I am still on a video game hangover after Mass Effect 3. Mainly playing League of Legends, AirMech, and Starcraft 2/Warcraft 3 customs. I'll likely rant more about it here -
What has everyone been up to? Don't forget to connect with us on Steam and Raptr - add me, Yogizilla, and I'll get everyone connected!
Yahoo! Groups is still active.. And fantasy football starts in roughly 11 weeks soooo... E-mail here to susbscribe (or visit Yahoo! Groups):

Mass Effect 3 Demo - Multiplayer ONLINE!
Mon Feb 20, 2012 Posted By: Yogizilla
OMG.. There haven't been many games that have excited me as of late. Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 are both fun, but Mass Effect 3 is the third installation I've been REALLY waiting for.
Well, let me say this: the demo DELIVERS!
Now, you can play two co-op maps and enjoy Horde/Zombies-style survival action with some objectives here and there. What I love is that they stayed true to the core mechanics of Mass Effect while creating a multiplayer experience that's actually fun and not a mere add-on.
That said, if you plan to get Mass Effect 3, add me on XBox LIVE - Yogizilla - so we can jam together. Soon, I'll be replaying Mass Effect 2 to beat the game with a different ending...
since we know that Cerberus is going to double-cross us anyway (bastards).
