Loading... Snakes and Planes

Loading... it's a laugh riot, though usually only one of those two things at a time.

First, the Ten Ton Pulse, your finger on the beating heart of the MMOG industry.

If the Top 10 isn't enough, we now show the Top 20 and Top 50 lists as well, available to everyone on our homepage. (What is Pulse?)

  1. Age of Conan - 200 BPM
  2. World of Warcraft - 170 BPM
  3. EverQuest 2 - 59 BPM
  4. Warhammer Online - 42 BPM
  5. Lord of the Rings Online - 41 BPM
  6. EVE Online - 35 BPM
  7. Lineage 2 - 31 BPM
  8. Guild Wars - 29 BPM
  9. Tabula Rasa - 25 BPM
  10. Vanguard - 24 BPM

As you can see from the Pulse, yesterday was an enormous day for traffic here at Ten Ton Hammer. We set a new record for unique users in one day. Well done folks! A large part of the community was viewing our latest contest called, "AoC 4 Life" You won't find an Age of Conan contest cooler than this. You have my guarantee!

"Age of Conan is almost here, and Ten Ton Hammer is teaming with FUNCOM to bring you the contest of a lifetime! In the Ten Ton Hammer AoC 4Life contest, 10 people will score beta keys. 5 of those lucky beta key winners will also get a copy of the collector's edition of Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. 1 will go on to get the collector's edition plus an autographed framed Age of Conan concept art. And one extremely lucky contestant will walk away with a collector's edition signed by FUNCOM founder and Age of Conan Game Director Gaute Godager and a lifetime subscription to the Age of Conan.

You read it right. One lucky S.O.B. will get the game free, it'll be signed by Gaute Godager, and that gamer will never have to pay a penny for Age of Conan for life!"

I can't believe that one of our staff used "S.O.B." in a contest description. Phil...please bring your iron fist to the lunch room. We have some educating to do!

I landed in Vegas only to find that what I thought was poorly played and obvious April Fool's joke had tricked quite a few people. Your heartfelt good-byes brought a tear to my eye. Thank you for all of your kind words. Unfortunately, you can't get rid of me that quickly, though you did get me sent to the desert.
