N-Day4: The Aftermath

Hey, guess what? We finally got our N-Day4 results back. Remember N-Day4? With the nuclear launches and whatnot? Well, somehow the final tally got caught up in some red tape, and anyway, the point is, you would not believe how fast rampaging zombie hordes cut through red tape.

So if you can take a moment from your current desperate struggle to survive, here's a wrap-up of what went down during N-Day4!

Final Leaderboard

Two-time reigning N-Day champs Augustin Alliance went in looking to make it three in a row, and boy, they put up a hell of a fight. It's not easy to be the champ. Everyone is looking to nuke you. And this time, the 500 or so plucky AA nations had to settle for third.

The new dominant faction was Horsemen of the Apocalypse from Hell, who pancaked all challengers en route to racking up a truly massive score of 332,564—almost double the previous record! I'm given to understand that the Horsemen maintained a solid lead throughout most of N-Day, then cemented their position by backstabbing partner faction UPPERCUTS in the most brutal, radioactive way possible.

Z-Day8: The Long Dark Nightmare Is Nearly Over

Good news! The undead have basically run out of live victims and begun starving to death in most regions. On the downside, 85% percent of the global population is either dead or infected. But the number of survivors has stabilized, so if you're still hanging in there, I think you're going to make it!

Unless, you know, some zombie exporter slips into your region at the last minute.

Zombie apocalypse ends in:

As I write this, the Z-Day Tally Board tells me that:
