Hall of Fame The hall of fame (page 76…) lets you see the top Factions and players in TC, ranked according to level, wealth, crimes, casino and more. These are the different categories, and a short description of each:
 > Top Factions  > Level  > Rank  > Casino
 The factions with the most respect.*  The highest Level players in Torn City.  The highest Ranked players in Torn City.  All of the Casino/ Gambling games, and their highest wins. Unlike ‘Streak’, this is never reset.

Job Listings This page is where you can sign up for a Starter Job, or find a Company to sign up to (ordered by rank). It also lists company details, prices, and employee ranks. For more information, view our Job page, Company page, or Company Tutorial . Back to Top
Local Gyms This is where you can sign up for a Gym to train your stats in. Woody’s Work Out Club This gym is for levels 1-9 and costs $100 for a pass. You don’t need to buy this, because you automatically have a pass to this gym when you first start playing (You can buy it to can switch between the two gyms once you are level 10 or over). Average Joe’s This gym is for levels 10 and over, it costs $25,000 to get a pass. It is very worthwhile going to this gym. Instead of costing 5 energy to train, it will cost 10, but it costs half the amount of happy and you get more of a boost for each unit you train. Back to Top
Property Listings This page shows you all of the houses you can buy, and also gives you links to the player Selling Market and Rental Market, which you should definitely look at before you consider buying a house. Houses cannot be sold back to the system, only other players. We list all House prices/ information on This page. Back to Top
Freebies This contains some Torn City themed wallpapers for your computer, and who submitted them. Back to Top
Classified Ads Here you can place an advertisement in the newspaper for $250,000. Only the latest 7 are shown on the front page of the paper, but clicking this link will take you to the latest 40. Back to Top
Personals Here you can put up a personal ad for $10,000. The advertisement stays up for 7 days, and the newest is shown on the front page. The different categories are: Man seeking Woman, Woman seeking Man, Man seeking Man, and Woman seeking Woman. You can insert your likes, dislikes, general information, and your age. Your profile picture will be displayed in the ad. Back to Top
Bounties Here you can view all of the Bounties placed on people. To Claim a bounty, click [claim] on the bounty page. It will ask you if you want to hospitalize the player and claim the reward now, click > Claim the reward. If you win the fight, and hosp them, you will then be given the reward. If you hospitalize the player, without clicking [claim] first, you will not be rewarded. To place a bounty on someone, click > Put a bounty on someone, at the bottom of the Bounties page. The minimum bounty is $10,000 x their Level. You can put the price up as much as you want, in order to increase chances of people taking the bounty, and you can place as many as you want (You still have to pay for each). You will also be given the option to put your name as the person who placed the bounty, or anonymously (The name will be displayed as ‘someone’). A player can only have 10 bounties on them at once. If people pay 3x the bounty, it can be removed. To do this, click [Buy off] next ot their name on the Bounty page. Nobody receives their money back if you use this option. Beware! Some players, especially level holders, will add themselves to the bounty page so people attack them and lose. Checking age, rank and crimes can be a good indicator of if you can defeat them or not. You don’t gain exp when people attack you and lose when trying to claim bounties, so there’s no practical reason for them to do this, but it still happens. Back to Top
Comics Here you can view all of the comics, submitted and accepted. If you submit a comic, and it is accepted, you will earn 50 points. The comic must be Torn City related, exactly 650x 200 pixels, look professional, and be your own work. Your comic doesn’t have to be very good to be accepted, so have a go! Currently comics made using free templates are being accepted (You can find them on google). You can check out our Comics archive Here. Back to Top
Horoscopes The Horoscopes are just that, Horoscopes based on your star sign, with a ‘TC twist’. These are updated weekly. Back to Top
Chronicles The Chronicles are fictional pieces of history regarding locations, aspects, or events in TC. These are currently:
 The Founding…  Crime…  Financial Economy…  Faction Warfare…  Dirty Bombs…
 Big Al’s Gun Shop…  Blackout ’07…  The Docks…    

When submissions are open, you can submit your own chronicles and earn 300 points. A lot of people submit their chronicles, so it has to be well written, and adhere to all the guidelines. Back to Top

The only way u could do it is 2 give the money 2 someone else 2 add u or create a multi-account.

written by Demon-Hunter on September 24, 2008 how many time the player can submit comic? more than once. If we submit 2 we got 100points? TCB: As long as it’s not the same comic, and it gets accepted, you can submit as many as you want and get the reward.

written by MKLeya on April 02, 2009 ««« We only accept comics that have been made to a professional standard First, upload your comic to your user images, and then follow these steps. Comics that have been rushed or made with MS Paint, will NOT be accepted. »»» why cant i use Paint to draw the comic? what can i use then?! TCB: If your comic looks professional, it doesn’t matter if you’ve used Paint. Otherwise ‘Gimp’ is a free image developing tool- you can google it.
