I'll let Psychout answer that one as i'm not sure what alt modes are available through the editting window because it's yet to load for me. :P


Unfortunately Raph, were all stuck with the cores. We may allow the champions to choose a 'prize' alt for their team at the end of each season though depending on the size of the league, but the admin console has only just reappeared and I dont want to jinx it. :lol:

That's good. I could have done fine with core's, but with it working again, it's nice to have selection. The 'prize' alt possibility sounds nice.

*edited - will come to a decicion on this shortly*

Just remember that whatever config chosen will have to stay unchanged for a whole season, so think carefully and use all the information you have available to make your decisions.

Ok, after a quick discussion with Burn we want to make this as simple as we can for you guys.

You may use any armour, weapons and alts you can get your hands on, and all The Huntmasters will need from you is the list of stats you will be using and your chosen character link. The rest is up to you.

Feel free to rename/recreate your character all you want, alter the bio and story etc as much as you like as long as we have its stats and link then its fine.
Or just leave them as they are, your call.

Quick question: Do we get to keep any XP we earn after the Tourny not including the 15,000,000 XP?

No.

The XP will not be removed as the leagues will run continually until the endgame begins, at which point your involvement in that will be explained.

It will make it unbalanced yes, though it isn't hard to subtract 15 mil from whatever the total is. Anything else after that is what you've earned.

Question about energon. Will you be giving those who chose to participate the required energon to fully install their chosen armor from which rank they choose. Lets say I choose to go up to rank 7, where all the armor costs skyrocket. Would we have to cover the cost of installing that armor? Some people may be unable to cover that kind of cost, which would put them at a disadvantage against those who do have the reserves to cover it. I guess weapons go in line with this questioning as well.

I don't think that the energon should be too much of an issue perhaps take it by a case to case basis seeing as the donations work and I've got €1,215,757 If someone needs armor and can't afford it I am sure something can be done

Hmmmm, very good point EP.
Energon is an interesting issue, as its something I cannot directly alter (which was the problem with the hunting game.)

Its possible that we may all have to work within factions with donations to get this of the ground, but ill have a look and see what I can do.

Maybe an entry fee could be charged? I do realize that new accounts still may not have it, or an entry donation? Not required buy highly recommended? Or a volunteer? if they need it and are Decepticon I'll finance the weapons and Amory within as long as they aren't changing it every day... Since they can only reset during stated times they shouldn't need that much my team can hold up the incoming energon.

After the tournament would it be possible to return are characters to their pre tourney exp levels or will we have to reset and start for scratch? (not that its a real issue for my bots but i still hope this could be cleared up)

Secondly are the participants allowed weapons or will it be good old fisticuffs?

Weapons were greenlighted in previous posts.

I think that the will be no need to return the characters back as they will be in the tourney right up to the end of of V1.

It would be cool if we could win V2 prizes, as added incentive.

Me personally I keep track of my XP constantly. If they were going to put them back down to what they had before I'd ask for what he had, as I understand it they are going to raise it to 15 mil total, so that would include what you have now, taking it away would bring you back down below what you had to start possibly. As I've read, it will an on going thing until End game starts so if you join you should know your in it for the long run.

Had another thought/question cross my mind, and it goes in line with those asking about XP being taken away.

I believe it was said, in the first post with the rules, that there would be more than 1 season, correct? And that you have to re-sign up for each season?...Are we allowed to enter multiple bots throughout the league, like season 1 i enter character A, season 2 i enter character B. Or will we have to choose between character A and character B and that chosen one will be it through to the end of game?(i only have one character i want to enter ever into this, so i'm just throwing this stuff out there, giving you more stuff to ponder over :P lol)

As I read it (correct me if it is wrong Psychout) it could last multiple months in which "seasons" could take place given how long V2 takes to be ready, once version 2 is here it will most likely be pulled. But in the small print point 2 is this:

You may only sign up one of your characters for this league, ever.

So it would be the same bot each season. I'd think that you wouldn't have to sign up but just play as directed simply because no one else would have level 6s.....

Ahh, thanks Sustain. I must have overlooked that accidently, or maybe read over things before that got added.
