The usual, sites want money so they try and throw as many ads at you and try to deter adblockers.

 

Don't know about the signing out part though.

 

Personally I think sites like that aren't good, you don't see Scrap.tf or Backpack.tf doing it, yet, I wouldn't use them.

I heard that it also had malware ads so be careful if you use it still

 

 

Yeah the old Backpack.tf had some of those so I don't doubt other sites do, so just to be safe if you see a site that bypasses the adblocker, don't use it.

 

Better safe then sorry.

 

You can probably research more on it if you want a better answer, though.

Its also bad when your mid way through making a trade putting your prices n' stuff and the page reloads and opens like 5 other virus tabs so you have to restart

adblock doesn't block its redirecting ads, constantly signs me out. what happened to it

 

I've been noticing a lot of similar problems with outpost. Tbh, at this point it doesn't do anything that backpack.tf can't so I'm not quite sure why so many people still use it.

Ive been using TF2 Outpost for around 5 years and it has ALWAYS had Malware ads. The best way to not have to deal with the Malware ads are to get Premium to remove the ads all together

 

Back in the day it used to be $5 a month, but now its $1 a month. Why you ask? 

IMO its because nobody uses Outpost anymore, the ads are loud as hell sometimes, and the website will give malware VIA ads.

Well why wouldn't they try and prevent adblock? It's $1 a month for premium there then you don't have to worry about the ads.

Make it so backpack tf can advertise things that you have on the steam market. It is the sole reason I use outpost since the steam market still has more volume than marketplace for some items.

Because by bypassing adblock, viruses are being spread. It's annoying, and not a "feature" that anyone should have to deal with. It happens to me as well, and I don't run adblock
