Autobots, get your hunt on!

Postby Burn » Thu May 20, 2010 3:41 pm

Alright Autobot Commanders, time to pay attention. Autobot Commander Dragonslayer has put together a little scalp hunting contest for you to compete in.

That's right, an AUTOBOT ONLY contest. A little friendly rivalry between you and your fellow Autobots and all you have to do is what you normally do, hunt down and stasis lock a few Decepticons.

Here are the details!

Dragonslayer wrote:That's right, Autobots! It's time for a little friendly competition with a scalphunt! The rules are as follows:

    * Event will begin on Sunday, May 23, at 12:00 pm Central Daylight Time and will end on Saturday, May 29, at midnight CDT
    * Claims may be tracked in the upcoming Claims Thread (for those who have access to Iacon)
    * Only Missions with at least 3 combatants a side will count
    * To make up for limiting missions and rarity of alts, you will be allowed to claim the same Decepticon more than once

Your targets will be Decepticons with the following altmodes:

    Image Raze
    Image Watchdog
    Image Darknight
    Image Fireheel
    Image Whirlwind
    Image Pandemic
    Image Stand Off
    Image Road Rage
    Image Rundown
    Image Cloudrazor
    Image Diesel
    Image Spectre

All participants will receive an icon similar to the Autobot Spartan symbol in my avatar or sig, with the color representing the number of kills you registered (bronze, silver, gold, etc.). In addition, the top 3 players will receive an energon bonus, courtesy of RevengeofStarscream and the Bank of Iacon: 1st place will receive 600,000, 2nd place will receive 300,000, and 3rd place will receive 150,000.

So get ready! Then hunt begins midday on Sunday...Good luck!!


To read the backstory to the hunt that Dragonslayer has written, and to join in on any hunt related chatter, check in on hunt central here

NOTE: HMW Staff apologise in advance to those Autobot Commanders that currently do not have access to Iacon, the Autobot faction forum. Rest assurred though that there will be plenty of other competitions in the future that we hope you'll stick around to participate in!

I dunno. Is Mafia Wars on Myspace the same as Mafia Wars on Facebook? If so... then no. It's actually fun.

'Cons, as much as I love the smack talk, ease up for a few days and let the 'Bots have a chance to filter in. This is their contest and you'll have plenty of chances once it starts to make it difficult for them.

instead of saying "I don't have any of those alt modes" you should be saying "Hey, I should grab those altmodes to help AZ win another bot only competition." :D

hmm.. I just assumed he'd run it like how zordon ran the previous one and let people who couldn't get into Iacon post them either in HMWGD or PM them to him as they went.

An update on the prizes: Raphael Prime has offered to put up 3 Null-Ray Rifles to the top 3 LV 0-1 Autobot commanders as some added incentive for the lower levels to compete and to help out them out since weapons are apparently starting to sell out again. So for his contribution, we thank him ;)^

Well It looks like the chosen alts were taken do to those alts being in the core pool. Too bad a lot of players would rather not pick from that section of the list.

A lot are being used, just by guys level 3 and lower. Except 1, which Red has as his grunt alt.

That would be great. I'm not sure how that week will go for me quite yet, but I will let you know before the start if I am in - which I am hoping to be.
