The Torn of The Dead is one of the annual competitions in Torn. It is basically an attack-based event.
2012 | 2010
TOTD 2012 started on the 5th of November. Only the people who had logged in once around the start of the competition were allowed to participate.
In all, there were approximately 36,500 participants. All the low levels that were less than 15 days old had been made zombies.
A zombie would not be able to infect a citizen if the battle stats of the citizen were much higher compared to that of the zombie, a new change this year.
There are 3 obtainable merits with the criteria as follows:
Attack 50 Zombies
Infect 50 Civilians
Unknown Survive the entire month as a civilian
So, a person can only obtain two merits during this event thereby having to sacrifice one.
Zombies are taking over the city, infecting us one by one.. Can you survive?
– Stay alive.
Everyone between the levels of 1 and 5, are a zombie. The infection will now start to spread.
For further details, please click “Competition” on the sidebar.
Infection level as of 1st of May 2010: 58,555 / 186,939 citizens infected.
Don’t blame me if you die, you asked for it! I hope you’re happy with yourselves!
The Competition description from the sidebar:
By defeating ‘civilians’, you can randomly get a new item, ‘Human Head’, while Zombies can drop the ‘Zombie Brains’ item:
To get Human Heads, you have to be a zombie, and ‘turn’ a civilian into a zombie using your special attack.
To get Zombie Brains, you have to be a civilian, and can Hosp, Mug or Leave the zombie.
Zombies and civilians now have special markers displayed under their Profile Pictures:
Once a civilian has been turned into a zombie by another zombie, he cannot return to civilian status.
When a zombie attacks, they get a special attack option (at random), along with the usual:
Attacking with this special option turns Civilians to Zombies (for instance, ‘Infect’ above, and the rest shown below).
This Competition Ended on June 01, 2010.
Here is Chedburns announcement:
