dont forget about adding in the whole Yakuza line of factions and their massive chains, which i believe, was part in the decisions to limit chains, respect gains, and limits on factions being destroyed.


Yakuza Those were the days...

Something happened in February 2007



worst day in Torn history


This. Or the fact that they had a side server open for players for a little bit to run 2 vertioms of torn. So we could test stuff and do whatever stupid stuff we wanted in the other one. So after destroyingy account in the other one few weeks later the main torn went poof and they decided it would be a good idea to use data from the side server to repair the main one...

It is a pity they didn't allow us to bring over the insane amounts of money we were able to mug on the beta server.

I basically trashed my account on the beta server then had to wear that when they imported the data to the main game after the crash

I remember most of the old events. There was also an issue when traveling was introduced, namely you could be attacked and hosped when flying back from El Cascado. Staff constantly said it wasn´t bug and it took quite a good while before this was changed.

We also have another faction we shouldn´t forget about - Goodfellas. I think it was a guy called Merc who was the leader.

28.08.2006 - HT took the top spot in HOF from BH

1 HT 31 23210
2 --BH-- 38 23185

I got the HT archives back to 27.07.2005 - and that was when HT got real organized with it's own ofsite forum.

And HT-WoD became (got renamed) to HT around 31.01.2006.
We sold all other subfactions of HT with time.

Some would say they got destroyed by HT, others would say they got disbanded. Some people formed their own factions and brough fellow factionmates. DA and The Red Pandas were two of them.

The Red Pandas didn't appear until after the destruction of Blitzkrieg - so I would imagine that would have been year 2/3. They emerged after the war because the main SS/RAoV method of spamming the faction talk thread was anything and everything related to the red panda image.

May have to harass Baals about when he broke off to form DA. I think this was probably similar timing to when the Red Pandas emerged.


ON TOPIC:
1. Can someone confirm that EP fought alongside SS against SUN during 'WW3'

2. Can someone place 39th in that same war. I don't think they abstained, I just can't remember who they allied with. I think it was SUN.

3. Who remembers this little gem? zomg-2.gif

I remember seing this for the first time in the CoVE forums, or whatever we called it. It was a circular alliance between SS with subs, EP and Goodfellas and possibly another faction aswell. I was in charge of SS-T back then between october of 2005 and february 2006.

(Have more info to share on your reply, Corey. But I´ll leave it for later)

I know CoV was 'Circle of Violence'. Did Random Acts of Violence spawn from that alliance? I know that all of the big hitters moved there for chaining. But did the faction exist before CoV?

Yes, they were grouped with SS.

39th was with SUN. Our main focus was with EP. A few hits where thrown at SS as well.

SUN beat SS and we had a fairly even (or we where winning, can´t remember)fight with EP. The war ended prematurely since SUN and SS ended their war first.

Also, Infrit (3198) led 39th right when it was officially created. I was just Co

I remember when I first joined Torn about 6+ years ago. Loads of people in my school started saying how good it was, so I thought I'd sign up and see for myself.

No idea how I remember that.. I was thirteen at the time. I think it was because of your name and current profile signature. I'm almost certain that you had that on your profile back then. Not entirely sure though.

It's funny I call it the worst day in Torn history...somehow through the resets and all I ended up with a free Private Island, back when PIs were a hot commodity (maybe 500 people owned one, and I had two). I sold the 2nd PI and started up one of the first cruiseliners and drove it to a top 3 earning company. So really it was the best thing ever to happen to me Ah the days when no one thought an oil rig would ever be possible...

Then of course there was a time when the stock market was extremely easy to profit off of, just ask JimmyJames who was one of the leaders there. Guys who had a lot of time on their hands mades incredible returns, of which you will never see again in Torn. I wasn't willing to put in that kind of effort, and that's when I fell out of the ranks of "richest in Torn." Or should I say "Torn City"

Im pretty sure that Duals weren't the strongest weapon in the first year could be wrong but we had a different battle system back then so weapons didnt have accuracy and were instead seeming measured on a strength multiplier with speed and dex working out hit rates.
For that reason the RPG/AT launcher was the best weapon (cant remember if the AT launcher was actually around in the first year tbh) but the RPG was buyable in the shops back then and was by far the strongest weapon.
Most people used miniguns though as they only cost 3m and also did a significant amount of damage.

Also in the first year the first TC helpsite was formed. It was called Torncitycentral and it was created by sw00sh the leader of the Brotherhood of S3GA. I only know that as he was my faction leader at the time


Will try to post more as i remember it its a lil vague is all

Six years ago, you said? Yeah, that´s when I was training new players for SS-T. Seems like I received alot of respect and reputation for what I did and what I was thinking about back then.

Let me try and spread some light for you

Back then you concidered to be in the top if you lived in a mansion, had a Steyr Aug, Dual berettas and a samurai sword. AT's weren´t around until the first release of new traveling destination in the second year of TC. Some people actually had an RPG (and a coathanger) but those were findables athe chance of actually finding one was pretty small.
