-wiritng from the bunker of internet explorer- there seems to be an issue whenever I try to navigate the forums on firefox I get spammed by a new tab claiming to be ANOTHER empire game. The hacker attempted to cross id me but I had to cut my internet and end process my firefox browser through the task manager. It seems to not be affecting me while I am on this browser, so I will remain to use it here. Is anyone else having issues with this attack? Edit: I have seen the enemy and it's name is Goodgame Empire.... scouting for more information about them.

I ran a check, didn't find any malicious code on any of the pages. Unless you inadvertently clicked on an ad, I can't think of anything that could have caused this on the server's end.

I think it may be something with your computer's cookies or something.

quite possible that you have some malware infecting your browser, redirecting you to bunk shit. if i were you id run some malwarebytes and/or spybot just in case.
