    Hey all,
    I'm looking for random facts, all Torn related, no matter how obvious or abstract so long as it's factual. Any helpful input is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Naked mole rats have replaced quokkas and gerbils as Torn's Insertable Rodents (or macropods) of Choice.

    Excerpts from the Great Crash of 2007

    "Although it could have been a hell of a lot worse, some user data has been set back by one month. This does not include quite a few things. Bear in mind, this was in no way our fault at all, and will NEVER be happening again ever.

    The worst part: All user accounts created in the past month have been removed from Torn City. Their donator packs however ARE recoverable by using donator issues.

    -Just prior to an upgrade (literally an hour before), a RAID controller failed

    -During this failure one of the drives died - probably killed by the controller. Since we were using RAID-0 in the short term for performance, this is fatal. (again, this was going to be changed to RAID-1 approximately one hour later).

    -This combination of failures killed the partition-Despite 98% of these failures being recoverable, the array has been examined professionally and it is not recoverable

    -We therefore have to rely on our backups. We have offsite backups of the database, however on examination these have only been taking the first 80% or so of the database. This is entirely the host's fault for not checking them, although the method used was standard (a mysqldump) and there was no error produced during the automated backup process.

    -We therefore have to use old data for the last few tables - basically the users table.

    -This is a combination of worst case scenarios that it is hard to foresee."

    Stock market doesn't work as described in stocks. It was massively exploited in the past, which is where many old faction leaders obtained their original outrageous wealth, and probably how bodybagger could afford so many SE's.

    SE's originally didn't have timers, which is why no new player could ever hope to catch bodybaggers stats. Nope, not even that way. It is impossible.

    A dirty bomb can radiate players not in the targeted faction.

    At the bottom of the site there used to be a copyright message about Chedburn Networks. If you clicked the word Chedburn, it would bring you to a definition of the word. It was something along the lines of, "Chedburn; a game developer who doesn't care what the players think.' That wasn't exactly what it said, just a rough outline of what I can remember.

    Originally Mexico was the only flight destination. At some point we can expect an overhaul of travel which may include the ability to travel from one destination to another, without returning to Torn.

    More experience and respect is earned when you defeat tougher, higher level players.

    Torn defies physics. You can be gambling in the casino, fighting in the street, and racing at the race track all at one time. This has never been officially recognized as weird.

    Despite the never ending construction job on the finite city map, Torn has the fastest and most efficient construction companies on the planet. Every day thousands of warehouses are burned down but the city has zero interruption because of it. The streets remain open, the economy is unaffected and nobody goes to the hospital for cancer despite the smoke clouds looming all over the city.

    To add to that, construction workers can restore normality to a factions infrastructure immedistely after a dirty bomb hits the faction, facing radiation poisoning themselves.

    Players can not start their own construction companies because they can not compete.


    There has not been a single confirmed case of covid-19 in Torn.

    Torn is approximately 69 square kilometers.

    At a 20% critical hit rate, 16% of your landed attacks will hit your opponent's head, 2% your opponent's heart, and 2% your opponent's throat.

    The rifle type weapons can accept every type of weapon mod except for the shotgun chokes.

    Approximately 41% of the General Discussion playerbase wasn't aware of "k, m, b" when entering numbers into $ fields.

    Approximately 85% of the General Discussion playerbase didn't know about the stealth meter in attacks.

    ... I could do this all day man... are you writing a Newspaper Article or something? Or are you just curious?
