Well this time I am retired for good. It has been fun guys. I just have too much going on right now and the game has been a bit of a distraction.

Thanks everyone!

I always notice when you are and aren't playing :lol:
And I also noticed the gap between you and me getting smaller... Which under regular circumstances would not be possible.

You did announce your retirement last year; it was good still seeing you around in the missions now and again after that. It's sad to hear you are now leaving for good, but in any list of real life priorities, playing a mindless computer game should always take last place.

All the best and good luck with everything you are currently doing.

I think this qualifies as general babbling...all six of my guys in 1-11 missions at the same time. Never had that happen before.

Huh. >:oP

Well, we all know that's what happens with them; you either lose hard or win big (or sometimes, on very rare occasions when the Random Number God smiles down on you from atop the Dice Throne, win really big).

That gamble's part of the fun of 1-11 missions, isn't it?

I actually enjoy deploying my repairers in 1-11's since they have as much chance of repairing a high-level Autobot as attacking (or strafing, for that matter) a high-level Decepticon.

I used to enjoy throwing repairers in the missions, back when Naked_Magnus was still top of the bill for the Autobots. Nowadays... I seem to be top of the bill.
I most definitely appreciate any and all repairs made on my characters, but for me, it's all about the ram 'n' strafe.

Flinging repairers in is the best way to enjoy the 1-11's, unfortunately, its rare that I get more than 1 at a time - and having three repairers means some tough decisions need to be made. And by tough I mean random.

I haven't seen a 1-11 mission in the last few times I threw my characters into missions.

How else am I supposed to use my meatshields as cannon fodder for the higher level bots? :BOOM:

Hey-

any chance that the arena could be repaired- and maybe MKall could put in the more interesting mission text,

no offence but the HMW is one of the major reasons I hit the site as often as I can

'check homepage- HMW- then go though interesting news items and comments'

Cheers

There's always a chance, you just won't like the odds.

Okay, so who actually plays this game with enthusiasm anymore?

Or better yet, who still plays this game?

The first thing I do when I check the board is toss my lot in to missions. Then I'm off to the RPG section. If I'm in a real groove, I'll get a post up in the rpg, then some of my missions will be done, then I'll put some more of my 'Cons in missions then go do another post and so on and so forth until I'm tapped out for the night.

I'm not sure how much enthusiasm that qualifies for, but it's somethin'.

So these "people" are about as real as Bigfoot and Nessie?

A sad but inevitable moment passed by yesterday: all of Revenge_of_Starscream's (AKA Naked Magnus's) 'Bots have dropped out of the character ranking lists due to being inactive for too long.

It means every character that was ever below one of his characters has now shifted up a couple of places in the rankings.
