My default recommendation for any new player is an available or NPC member of a combiner team.

They're canons. A lot of them are good starter characters. Most all of them have been used in the game somewhere so there's a drop off point that you can pick up with in your own way. And they have a small group of players already built-in to interact with.

It can be difficult to get rolling in a game like this and find your sea legs (it was for me, at least). Going that route at least makes it somewhat easier.

The biggest thing you have to remember with the gestalt\special teams is only two gestalts are now in the game officially. Monstructor and Devestator are the only two with Monstructor being the only one who has shown up. Devestator is "made" but has yet to show up in the story. If you do decide on a special team member, go to the roll call list and see who leads each team. Then you can PM the player if you need help figuring out where the team is at. Maybe the mods can somehow indicate who are the team leaders for those who are totally unfamiliar with the G1 universe. Usually the leaders are on the top of the group list.

Hmmm...Would Blast-Off be available as a character then?

I could get behind playing a Combaticon, and I can definitely do arrogant :)

I sent him a PM on the issue. Waiting on response.

It takes a long time to get started in this...

Got my response. We're good to go on that end. I just need to get a bio and sample post together, and he should be good to go.

...Well aside from having been blown up by the Fallen :)

Next Step: Getting him out of the shop :)

Okay, I've got my intro for Blast Off Posted. If possible, I could use a medic to recover his body. Who's doing repairs for the Con side?

You have Ratchet and First Aid doing repairs and Groove doing med recon. I probably will also have Blades do a bit of recon as much as he wants to get into the fight.

It'd be hilarious to have the Protectobots save a Combaticon. Gotta love the ironies of this fight :)

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this yet, but while going back to read previous posts in the Lake of Fire thread, I've seen portions of people's posting getting deleted. It seems to be happening between the >> << symbols where we signify transmissions. If there's more than one transmission in a post, everything between those transmissions gets deleted and the double >> gets reduced to one >.

This has happened to at least three of my prior posts in Lake of Fire, which I've since fixed, and I've seen it with a couple of Foxfire's and Sid's. There's probably more. I think it might have something to do with the recent update to the site that added the quick reply button. Posts made before the update are what's affected. Not sure if this is happening across all threads as I haven't had a chance to go back to those yet. Just wanted to let everyone know in case it affects other players' responses.


Here's a couple of examples of what I'm referring to. You can tell the transmissions are getting messed up.

Nice detective work, Smoke!

I am sure a load of old posts have been messed up now...
