HEAVY METAL WAR
The New Althunt
Tired of seeing the same altmodes reset in, reset out?
Think Thundercracker is still fighting for the wrong faction?
Want to join the elite ranks of the Prime clones as a Decepticon?
Ever wondered what it would be like to beat on your enemies using one of their own altmodes for a change?
(Never played HMW and fancy giving it a try?)
Then you need... The Althunt!
The premise of this game is simple: Identify an enemy altmode you want for one of your minions. Hunt it down, scan its corpse 20 times and bring that data back to the Senate.
When you have 20 scans, we at the Senate will reformat your soldier into the alt you have selected.
And there you have it!
What's that Psychout? We can steal any alt we want from our opponents? Wow!
That's right kids!
1) Choose the alt you want from these lists :BOT: or :CON:
2) Find an opponent formatted to use that altmode.
3) Kill it. Kill it again. Kill it some more. Kill it harder. Keep killing!
4) Brag about all the killing in the claims thread!!
20 kills are all that's needed to get that toaster you’ve always wanted!
However, its not very likely that the alt will be easy to find nor that it will be the same level as you, so unfortunately there have to be some 'special' rules:
If you can't find the alt you want
Ask. Most people want a rare or maybe even a unique alt, some want an alt from their own side but on a different class of transformer. Post your request in the chatter and banter thread as listed below and one of the Senate will give you a challenge to allow you to earn that ramming seeker or avoiding battlestation you have always wanted.
Alts will be applied to a nominated member of your team but the better the bio they have, their better their choices...
If you decide you want a Jet alt but have no bio written for your Character then you will need to reset back to a jet before the staff will update your alt. Spend a bit of time explaining why your Autobot Seeker likes to Repair instead of Strafe however, and the staff will allow you to mix and match your alt class and your alt image whichever way you want!
The awarded lasts until you reset it, after that, you get to hunt it down all over again! Yay!
No, it will not be given back to you if you 'accidentally' reset your character, that's just dumb.
Arena battles only count as half (because the Arena sucks.)
There is no limit to the number of alts you can hunt
Feel free to keep coming back for more...
How to make a claim post:
Record the mission’s link once it’s done, then post it along with the alt you want. Edit the following victories into your post and then when you have scored the required kills bring it to the attention of the Senate via PM, and we’ll take it from there.
Too post the image of the alt you want simply copy this bit of code, copy the link of the image you want and post it all.
- Code: Select all
