Group Origins

Cheap Ass Survivors (CAS) is a subsidiary of the Cheap Ass Gamer forums (CAG), from which groups of "CAGs" have opted to create both Survivor and Undead groups, operating independently from one another. However, the status of the zombie group is very much in limbo, as repeated attempts to get it going have all fizzled out.


On October 7th, 2005, CAG member "r1s3n" posted on the forums a quick blurb on Urban Dead, which at the time yielded few replies and quickly died off. As such, the true origins of the Cheap Ass Survivor clan can be attributed to $hady, who at the time had begun playing UD again, and revived the thread on January 1st, 2008.

This time, the thread exploded, and in a 10-day period spawned over 350 replies, a CAS roster of (at the time of this writing) 21 active survivors in addition to a few undead characters played by the same CAS players as well as other CAGs not in the CAS group.

With such a CAG following, the suggestion was eventually brought forth by HotShotX to form CAG Survivor/Undead groups in-game, resulting in the formation of Cheap Ass Survivors and Cheap Ass Corpses, the latter of which has yet to get off the ground due to lack of undead CAGs.

Upon its formation, CAG member The Crotch (AKA, "Timur Leng", or "Crotch of Tamerlane" on Brainstock and Resensitized) suggested that the newly formed clan take up a dedicated location and goals in order to ensure the group's development and community. On the CAG Forums themselves, fellow CAS members began to recognize both HotShotX and The Crotch as the group's leaders. Crotch was chosen for his large amount of experience on Urban Dead; HotShotX for unifying the CAGs as an operational group and taking up a leadership role in helping others with the game.

The group moved to the "Saints Row" region of Darvall Heights and worked to help the area alongside the Crossman Defense Force, now known as the Soldiers of Crossman. The CAS was eventually ousted from the suburb by an overwhelming number of zombies, and they began wandering across Malton. They focused largely on suburb recovery, though they were briefly involved in fighting between Team Zombie Hardcore and the BRRC and did some light bounty hunting.

Some time during these events, HotShotX became inactive and The Crotch became the sole leader. When he left for work, he left Genocidal in charge. The group folded about a month after. It has since been brought back to life by long-time member "Geo".

The CAS are actively recruiting


  1. Aid fellow survivors in any way possible. The CAS is not tied to any area in particular - it goes where it is needed. Combating zombies is its primary reason for existence. We harbour no trenchcoat-ish ideals of "destroying the zombie menace" or "winning the game" - we simply like stopping zombies. Exceptions will be made for the Cheap Ass Corpses, should they ever get off the ground.
  2. Engage any known PKers without warning. While they recognize zombies as the main threat to Malton, the CAS are not above zombifying other humans.
  3. The CAS consider themselves friends and allies of the Soldiers of Crossman and The Saints, a bounty-hunting group that contains a number of former CAS members.


Historically, the CAS has consisted of the following players. While the group is going through an odd transition period at the moment, much of the old list still stands.

Cheap Ass Gamer Forums

$50 is a lot of money. That being said, most new games simply aren't worth that much. We all hate feeling ripped off after dropping half a bill on a game, that soon becomes clear, was not worth it. If we avoided paying full price, we probably wouldn't feel as bad and, that's the whole idea behind this site, feeling better about ourselves.

Well, that's part of it, its really about stretching your gaming dollar further so you can play more games for less money. Myself and the rest of the CAG community search the web and try to find quality games at cheap ass prices.

This site is a work in progress (created May 2003), so bear with me while I figure this stuff out.
