Outwar and other internet scams Jul. 8th, 2012 @ 01:38 AM Reply

Anyone remember that internet "game" Outwar? I for some reason remembered that game for way back in the day and remember how frustrated it would make me to have a friend send me an IM in high school linking to anything relevant to the time and BAM. I got tricked into supporting some mother fucker's "gang."

Apparently it's still around.

Anyone remember these games? Is there anything similar to this nowadays? Just a random midnight thought for all of you older NGers.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

I don't know why I put older NGers. Clearly I'm retarded. I guess none of the people who used the internet back in 2002-2004 remember this game cropping up all over the place? Especially on NG I remember it being a problem.

Oh good God, don't even remind me of Outwar. Those assholes used to spam NG reviews.

Yeah, I was around at the height of the Outwar fad.

I've even clicked a few links myself.

Also, I don't think it's the same game it was in '03...

www.outwar.com

They now claim to be a free text-based MMORPG.

The game is ok, it's just that literally anything in the game except buildings, research, and military units cost money, and they try to suck you into signing up for a plan that wires 20$ worth of in-game curency into your account every week

The maximum amount as to how much you can buy, is 2000$, and I shit you not

They always have to have the ads with girls that look like stupid fucking whores because they are appealing to an audience of twelve year olds. That's marketing, little Billy.

I remember this "hack" for farmville that was a trojan that my friend downloaded on my computer. It took a while to fucking remove and to this day I am the only one who I allow to use my laptop, ever.

I was there when idiots came and spammed the site with outwar links back in 2003. In the flash reviews, each ofhem goes like this...

"Great movie/game, but you can find it on www.outwar.com/shdjskhdjf.....trolololoufallforthiscrap"

Wade addressed the issue that time and there was a anti-Outwar crew made as a result. Never really get the point of the website however, something about a points system from hits or something, diidn't pay much attention anyway.
