At this rate, the strong (Cons) will only continue to get stronger, and the weak will only continue to get weaker. Are there any plans to increase the parity in the game, or is it a foregone conclusion that GALVATRON SUPREME will win just about every overall challenge from here on out? I'd like to see a weekend, or longer (or permenant) where each faction get an experience and energon bonus on every mission and arena fight, inversely proportional to the percentage-breakdown of membership for every faction. I.e., if there are 10% more con players than bot players, every bot player gets +10% experience and energon for every mission and arena fight...


Fixed - in bold. Seriously, I'm happy with the overall state of power level in this game. It mirrors the geopolitik of the actual G1 continuity, weirdly enough.

i hate to say it, but nick is right. in the various tf series' some are just stronger than others. Cons always had superior fire power. bots always had the cutting edge tech, and didn't have to worry about energon. preds were stronger than maxi's, but maxi's had stronger tactics.

and yes, GS will win 96% of mission's he's in. its just a fact of the game.

Cry havoc! A war dawn is set to rise over the shattered cities of Cybertron, and the ground shall move with the primal echoes of marching legions. Blue carnage. Righteous frenzy. An underclass seeks to assert dominion and subjugation, and has vowed to rip the very throat from this dying world. A planet torn asuner in a sea of havoc, shuddering with an unspeakable dread.

There's a difference between trolling and just posting silly stuff intended to make people laugh.

Believe me, these forums NEED more silly stuff. And with the group of Mods you have now, it will actually be allowed.

Provided we keep crazyfists from locking everything. :P

If you have something to add to the topic then by all means contribute and we will continue with the discussion. Sure sometimes we are a little silly at times as Burn said. But, we are all here to have fun. If you're not here to have fun then why be here. There is a difference between having fun and taking things to seriously.

Jeep?'s post actually had merit and a reason. (Is that an Oxymoron?) :P

so how do we drum up more maxi activity?

from whats been said, the maxi's don't really check the boards. any feedback? I know rp does, a little bit,but with the exception of 1 or 2 others the maxi's aren't really active board users, and it seems only a handful play.

we need more maxi players to actually join missions.

Well Psychout did the news thing, unfortunately it was pushed off the news menu on the left within a day. Sure it's still on the news page but how many people use that when they've got the menu?

And apparently the Command Bulletin's are bjorked otherwise they'd be getting utilised.

So there's probably not much else we can do. :?
