    "Employees of BLU were shocked this morning when they noticed their corporate web site was defaced by known rivals Reliable Excavation Demolition. Very uncharacteristic of the often brutalized RED, some say it represents only a fraction of the real damage that was dealt during the attack."

    I lost interest in those sites when I found it was a third party doing it, not valve. :(

    You know what this means though right?

    RED'S FIGHTING BACK BABY! I'm calling a new gametype that involves RED attacking.

    X)

    I have to admit that there's a bit of an evil troll inside of me that loves the false speculation these sites create within the forums. It's the #1 reason why I put the Scout on the Spytech support page. hehe

    I put them there for two reasons:

    #1 - I wanted to see if they'd pull in revenue. They don't. Not anything noticeable anyway.

    #2 - Spytech is going to be full of "Spoogle Spywords". So the reality of seeing Adwords on BLU and RED will reinforce the reality of the fake ads on Spytech.

    I see a lot of businesses advertising for other businesses on their own websites, so this is making fun of that.

    Oh, and the spytech support page (accessible from the fake BLU 404) was modeled after a Sun microsystems support page. (Everything about these sites mock reality - down to the image of the missing image with a little TF logo as the error icon.)

    Thanks, I appreciate the kind words.

    If you guys send an e-mail to RED, I'll put you on the Beta list for the RPG system underneath it all. ;)
