How and Why this was made?

Those were the days in 2012-2014 when I used to play Empire Earth with my friends on gameranger on a 2g mobile connection because my mom wouldn't just pay the internet bills.

Not a single game was playable with a "huge monster like MB" video loading into my gameranger room at 5KBPS creating lot of lag.

Furter I spent 3 weeks of research finding the proper domains that supply ads to gameranger via various tracking softwares.

Finally I ended up with a proper tracking software called dns query sniffer.
