Recommended Posts

In this life, only three things can be certain: death, taxes, and the imminent threat of Nuclear Apocalypse. For the first time in NS history, the (now biannual) N-Day will occur in February. Less than 72 hours remain until the wurld goes up in a nuclear ball of flame. Grab your lead umbrellas, throw some popcorn kernels in the nuclear reactor, and join us for the 8th run of an iconic NS event!

Faction registration and the Vault 41 forum have been opened.

We all love a feel-good story about a group of misfit underdogs rising up to best the seemingly all-powerful antagonist through the power of friendship and teamwork. It leaves you with a warm glow in your heart, reassuring you that all is just and fair in the wurld.

This year's N-Day was not one of those stories. Instead, reigning champions Horsemen of the Apocalypse crushed the second largest faction in a one-sided massacre, effectively winning the event by the 9th hour. The rest of the event was devoted to factions feasting on the corpse of Potato Alliance, which ended the event with an astounding seven figures of radiation.

Congratulations to the winner of the event, HotA, which secured its fourth N-Day victory with a record-breaking 1.6 million score. The top 10 factions are listed below.
