Whilst I dont think all bounties should only be claimerble from the one charecter, I like the idea that some bounties are. (Take out 5 designated hunter charecters with your designated hunter charecter?)

Jeep's got no net at uni. This is because he's lazy and irish. I say we asume he agrees with me (when does he *ever* not agree with me? :P), and get on with deciding the pred alt/s.

Bloody students!

In that case, 13 votes and 1 no-show is enough, motion carried.

Each faction group of you now needs to chose a pair of alts you want between you.

1 from the hunter class - ideally a core or common.
1 from the core alts of your faction - can be any you wish.

Think when you choose. You need a balance of tactics, alts that look the part, ideally only 1 per team and all the other hunters from your faction need to agree on them.


Away you go...

Note: They can be changed later, but not til after the first initiation contest is complete (which will be shortly after the Pred/Max tourney is finished) so choose wisely.

Does it have to be hunter, or can it be predator, which is essentially the same thing, just with ram instead of strafe?

Why don't you just nominate an alt from each of those classes? What i'm doing.


Zordon and Windstalker, how do you two feel about these alts? Feel free to make your own suggestions as well :) .

Image - Predator class, ram and avoid.
Image - Hunter class, strafe and avoid.

Thought about it, and went to the five teams who are hunters for the Preds to try and compare rosters and see who's got what in common. I'll post that in a few.

Sure, change it to:

1 from the hunter or predator class - ideally a core or common.
1 from the core alts of your faction - can be any you wish.



Chronic, the other jaguar alt is a rare isnt it? You need at least 1 core.

I nominate these two for the :PRED:

Image (Hunter, it's by far the least ugly of the Hunter and Preditor alts)

Image (helpful air animal, I know a few of us have these) or Image (dangerous land animal, cuase I like it)

Go to the altmodes page, right click on the image and press 'copy image location' (or the IE equilivent). Then paste it in an IMG thingie, thus:

Code: Select all

Most of our alt modes look like poo.

I do kinda like the T-Rex alt that Red picked, unfortunatly it's a trap alt with only ram.

Image
This is my hands down favorite Predacon Alt. Unfortunatly it's a trap as well. ;_;

Maybe we can get our favorite Moderator to fix it? ^-^

A one tactic alt is admitedly more difficult to get to work, but not impossible. Right now, most of us dotn have enough xp to make the most of dual alts anyway, and frankly Redlock's one of my more consistent charecters.
