This site premiered a little while ago, and is geared toward being one of this year's online crazes.
My friend Mike IM'ed me today and said he thought it was a cool idea, and to which I responded, “whatever, I still beat you!” — However, he returned with “no, I beat you by like 1,000 points.”
… Huh? — We both ran it at the same time… so, how could this have happened?
We exchanged screenshots, proving that the site is rigged and seems to represent no actual “fighting” value. — Those scores could be, and probably are, mostly random.
While their FAQ may state:
Your score is the sum of the current number of people online who have you listed as a buddy, out to three degrees. This means the score is constantly changing, and the winner of the battle will constantly change with it.
… We still ran this at the exact same time, and received totally different results. Mixing in a bit of randomness doesn't make sense, and neither does the missing ~15,000 points on his end.
I find it hard to believe that they'd process this much data so quickly just to actually generate real scores for this. It'd be way too computationally expensive for a total gimmick. — Therefore, AIMFight.com is indeed a total gimmick. They wouldn't need to cache the results in a cookie on my machine if it were otherwise legit. 👎🏻
