Yeah, it'll have to be from the existing alts list for now.

Ill take those as a yes then.
Maybe you can chose a group of 3 if you guys want but we run the risk of overlap, and I wanna keep it as simple as possible so 1 alt per faction would be easier.

The rest of you?

Overlapping between factions shouldn't be a big deal.

Uh... One problem, is this alt going to be available in V2 since the hunter licenses are going to carry over (they still are right?)

The alt will have to be re-chosen when V2 starts, but we can plan for it as long as we a can decide on this now.

And yes, licences will definately be carried over.

So then there will be a total of 4 "Hunter Alts" since of course every faction basically has a different set of alts.

If so, i nominate these two for the Maximals, Windstalker, Zordon, what you guys think?

My favorite alts mostly have crappy tactics, and aren't available right now.

Tough Land Animal - Wolf. Ram only

Opportunistic Land Animal - I think it's a Fladramon variation. Avoid/Repair

Strong Land Animal - Lion (Ligerjack/Uni Leo Prime) Ram/Strafe

Lets not overcomplicate this. Try and keep it to a core alt so new hunters can add it when they join you. And when I mention overlap, I only mean that a team shouldn't have more than 1 hunter alt, it dont matter if factions chose the same alt.

And theres still a bunch of you that need to agree to this first.

Aside from the lion alt, they're mostly commons, but I understand.

I also see what you mean about the overlap, and that's a good point. Though there's still the chance that you could end up with the same alt being used multiple times on a team. Pre-reset there was a autobot who ran a team of Lio Convoy alts.

I suppose if a player choses to have multiples they can, but then their opponent will have double the chance of killing them. Their loss.

So, the question of the week is:
Should all hunters have to add a relevant pre-agreed alt to their teams, and as an initiation game collect a group (7 or 8?) of them from the others?

This can then also be used as a challenge for those you feel who would make good hunters but do not have the time to collect a full 12 man team.

The alt would be chosen from the core lists for each faction, and it would be mandatory for the hunter to have it on the team, and for new hunters to add it.


Comments/suggestions?


We've already got the agreement of all 3 Maximals, AZ and N_V from the Preds and Chronic from the Cons. (above, thanks guys.)

Time for the rest of you to speak up:
neliz
Galvatron Supreme
Halo
InsecticonSlave
Chaoslock
Veep
Redimus
Jeep


Yay or Nay?

Aye, I'm in favor of the idea. I nominate the Hunter-Jaguar alt as one of the alts for the Cons:

Ravage

I think there should be at least 2 though, just so there's at least to tactic sets for people to choose from.

Do you have to kill the opposing hunter's hunter-alt with your hunter alt or will any kill count? I like the idea of having use your Hunter to claim the kill. More challenging and worthy of the title Hunter.

I'll give a big AYE to this idea!

As for an alt-mode, I have no idea. with only one g1 bounty hunter (devcon) it's a bit hard to go for a good alt-mode. though I myself like powerglide but .. that's up to you guys.

Thanks guys.

The alts will be chosen by the relevant faction so neliz, you can just choose your 2 from the bot list; the Maximals have already decided on theirs; and the preds and cons will need to decide amongst themselves once they have all agreed to the game.
It can always be changed by agreement later on.

Just waiting for a few more responses now:
InsecticonSlave
Chaoslock
Redimus
Jeep

Then we can work on the specific rules, which should be pretty straightforward.

We just pick a core alt for each faction, designate it as the 'hunter alt' and make it mandatory for the hunter to have it on the team.


Opinions please...


Only problem with that is the fact it it's only one selected alt. *Most* of my team is the alt I want them to be, and the onse who arnt have builds I want em to have. Only having one 'hunter' alt per faction increases the liklyhood it'll be an alt some people simply do not want. Maybe if it was two or three, perhaps with a theme (faction leaders perhaps?) it'd work better. Otherwise, I like the idea.

You would have full say in the alt used as its down to you guys to work together to chose it, but there is no reason that you cant have 2 (or 3), but then we run the risk of a team having more than 1 hunted alt which doubles their change of being caught, so its your call.

Just the last 3 to pop in and agree now...

Do you have to kill the opposing hunter's hunter-alt with your hunter alt or will any kill count? I like the idea of having use your Hunter to claim the kill. More challenging and worthy of the title Hunter.


My understanding is that the alts should be core, so new hunters can get them right away if they don't.

And these are really only to designate targets for people who want to claim their hunters licenses starting after we select the alts for the factions. That way, it's more of a challenge for the would be hunters to get their license. If you want to only count kills from your designated hunter alt, that's your perogative.

I didnt realise Ravage wasn't a core, crap. He should be the 'hunter' alt considering his class, shouldnt he? (Shows when I last checked, dont it? lol)

As people wanted a choice, we could go with a single core alt and a relevant alt from the hunter class, assuming the bots/max/pred have a suitable alt they could choose?



The games themselves can be discussed once Jeep and Insecticon give us to ok, as there is the intiation and the challenge games, both dont have to be played the same way.
