The True Value of a Faction

Report by Moguai on 15/12/14 (5 days ago)

How much is a faction worth?

The question is often asked around Torn and the answer depends on a lot of factors - all of which are never definite and never certain. Faction value is exactly what this article aims to explore.

Overall, a key component in the value of a faction is the total respect, made up of a combination of current respect and the faction specials bought in the past through trading respect in for specials.  Steadfast, historically, has been the most coveted special, increasing gym gains by up to 10%. However, there has been growing popularity for Hermetic - responsible for reducing drug addiction gains by up to 50% - effectively lowering rehab bills when making the long trip to Zurich, Switzerland. Other popular specials include Salutary (reducing reviving energy cost to 25 energy vs. the standard 75) and Cumber (increases items that can be carried up to 10 while overseas).

Another factor to consider when buying or selling...

The day the world turned black...

The dust has finally begun to settle. Eye-witnesses have described it as akin to watching a bomb go off. Families were shaken, lives destroyed, but Black Friday has finally passed. An annual tradition that began in the United States, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and traditionally seen as the first day of the Christmas shopping period. Retailers came to anticipate this surge in the numbers of shoppers - competition and chaos followed. Stores embarked on a game of promotional one-up-manship, until Black Friday mutated into some kind of blood sport where consumers violently climb over one another to ensure they get the deal they want, before stocks run out.

Black Friday is increasingly referred to in popular culture, and with popular online retailers maintaining a global presence, it was only a matter of time until this plague went viral. This last Friday, for the first time, Black Friday reportedly spread to the UK, France, Germany, and China, with reports of other outbreaks coming in. Police were called to some larger stores, and harrowing vid...

Black Friday Bombs!

Report by IIIlusionist on 01/12/14 (20 days ago)

Seeing as how there have been three separate threads for each dirty bomb that has been dropped, I thought "...why not get all of the information into a single location and save you the time sprawling through the endless pages of 'who dropped the dirty bomb?' or 'Evil-duck is going to destroy the world.'"

We have nicknamed the first dirty bomb "Noob Bomb." The dirty bomb was dropped by that "well known" player krilitor1 [1608510] - you might have caught him during one of his 26 logins. However, disregarding the low, and very unlikely probability that any one player can gather $15,000,000,000 together in order to make (or buy) a dirty bomb in barely one hour and seven minutes, krilitor1 is most likely a multi-account. After all, who needs the merit and pride that comes with dropping a many-billion-dollar bomb - much better to hide behind a false account and remain anonymous is it not? The bomb was dropped on JFK, a well known faction.

The faction has been severely hit by a radioactive bomb activ...
