Fortressforever.com

Has the dev team tried filing with ICANN regarding this? It's an obvious case of cybersquatting, and even if it's not found to be that, it can be ruled as a similar, un-used domain name with the purpose of resale... possibly.

Tried it yet?

Why does the removal of a hyphen matter at all anyway?

I believe one of the devs or someone had that domain and was using it, and I guess it expired. But, you can't do shit about it my friend, unless they have legal rights to the name fortress forever. Because the domain expired, you get many warnings before a domain expires, and it expired. So, whoever picked it up has the rights to it.

Because PC Gamer can't seem to get the hyphen in there.

if most people are interested enough to go to fortressforever.com I'm pretty sure they'll take a second and go on google and type in fortress forever to find it.

If I was the devs I wouldn't worry about it.

Obviously by looking at the forums people aren't having a hard time finding the website. Website hits and actual people playing are two different things. Thing is most people know of FF already they just aren't playing it for various different reasons.

If there is nothing the American government can do about whitehouse.com then I don't believe FF has much hope...

EDIT: well it looks like they changed it. It used to be porn :P maybe the government did do something.
