So, how about you actually enter the missions that you do get against us?

They can only be spawned by you guys, so one of you must have activated it.

but averaged with the 100 xp missions its still not alot.

almost all my builds are high avoid, but a few are high strafe or ram. all but 3 of my bots are strait up avoiders with high speed and strong secondary tactics.
2 are high ram/str 1 is fp/strafe still with avoid and speed

Changing subjects.

How has the mission change affected the G1 battles?

Soooo... the Preds have voiced suggestions; do G1 factions agree or do they have other ideas?

I think someone mentioned "give it a week"; we're in day 5 so any recommendations should be considered for changes soon.

As a DCon player, frankly it's a bit boring, I've seen quite few beasties so it's almost always autostomp missions.

I'm ok with just fighting autobots, but knowing the others are out there seams like a waste.

It was a good idea but it's just creating more restiction than assistance.

The mission levels, the G1vBeast 4v4, and that only Beasts generate against other factions are all good changes.

The only change I think anyone should recommend at this point would be to increase the generation of G1 missions by Beasts. All others still seem valid and to have improved the game.

i don't know if it means anything but, i haven't seen a beast mission in ages. To be honest, most of the missions i go into are empty..... maybe i smell.

Either way i'd like to see some of those 0-1 missions i remember so fondly :grin:

No, it's the smell. That's the problem with Beast modes... Noses.

Way to pick on the little guy :P Half decent showing against larger opponents, although not the "millions of XP" you purples are used to I'm sure. We'd be glad to make more Level 3s for you to slaughter if you'll just get us the XP to make them.

i am making more xp overall, but i'm also in the arena atleast 3-5 times more often than i was prior to the changes. I would still like more non maximal missions, but the xp isn't as horrindous as I first evaluated.
