Outwar is an online MMORPG
, or Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. It originated as a money-making website for those involved, where it centered around advertisements which were forced upon people by the players who played the game. These players attempted to trick people into clicking their "secret link", which then led to a basic "j00 g0t wtfPWNT" screen with plenty of advertisements to make the site money. When this link was clicked, the owner of the link gained a small amount of "power", now called "experience". The game was never a malicious scam, and no spyware/malware/adware was ever involved. Those who claim so are ignorant or uninformed, and probably actually got the spyware and such from other websites which they won't speak about.
The Outwar world of today is much different. The link part of the game no longer grows you stronger. Instead, it gives your character a small buff... so small it's not even worth it. On top of that, the link is no longer spammed by any of the legitimate players. They have untold ways of getting this buff on not only themselves, but all of their friends, without getting anyone but themselves to click the link.
Outwar now is more like an MMORPG
than it ever has been before. Grinding
(see definition 15 for grinding
) is the main way of leveling your character now. You must walk around the town area and attack mobs or do quests for experience and items. You can also gain items by being in a "crew", or clan
of sorts... however you can never know for sure what you must do for that crew, or if they will even give you items for your work. Many crews will award items due to hard work and time spent for them, while others only try to better themselves and their close friends.
Outwar has a very long and scarred history, and I hope this true definition will help to set the naive internet population straight.
