but its 318 am my time. and their in the arena, i need them in missions. also its the lack of tevels. most maxis are 0-1, i'm used to fighting 2's and the occasional 3's

But how could it have been done from the get go?

NO ONE had any idea that the Beast factions wouldn't be as popular. A lot of people were under the impression that with everyone reset and having the ability to choose from four factions that things might be more balanced.

It didn't work out like that. And I don't see how it could have been done any differently.

When it became obvious that wasn't going to be the case something should have been done then, but I don't think people realise just how much of the site's data was damaged. And something people also seem to forget is that there's ONE Administrator of this game, and he's had his own issues to deal with in the real world. Trust me, he got his priorities right.

the point was about this radical change and nothing we can do about it but complain, and then get mocked for complaining.

keep mocking me. you know your gonna.

here i'll save you the trouble wahwahwahwahwahwah moan moan whine whine. it's all i friggen get anyway


No one's mocking you. Do yourself a favour and take a few hours away from the computer. It's just a game, I know from personal experience it is NOT worth getting upset over.

It's been over 12 years since Beast Wars first aired. Not to sound like a total know it all, but I think it would have been logical to presume that some of the fans who came in with Armada would be unfamilair with who the Maximals and Predacons were, and those might have more likely chosen the more familiar factions.

But it's not like I don't let things slip through.

For the record, I never asked for that :P

Maximal missions have always been a problem when I'm playing. Next to no opposition.

So to all the people who asked for more Maximal missions, I hate you :-x :P

I missed the G1 era on tv due to living in shall we say a farm of sorts. So Beast Wars was my first series I got to watch as it came out. So its always held a soft part in my heart. I fell in love with G1 as soon as I found the tapes then DVDs but BW always was my "first" and I gotta say "Megatron Terrorize!" sure beat out only the transformation noises for me.

That was the popular consensus. And as NV said, it would have helped earlier. When there were more maximals playing actively. Some, however, just advocated the lowering of the G1 missions to lower entries, like the 4v4. A few others changed their opinion once it became apparent that there weren't enough actively playing maximal commanders in missions.

They have the third largest faction... so where are they all?

Conspiracy time!

Well, don't look now, but the last 10-15 missions I've joined have had a handy Maximal showing.

I can't remember ever winning missions like we are today!

I'd be surprised if it lasted more then a few hours. This is the time of day when they win the most, which is still insignificant compared to their loses at the same time. It's weird seeing a mission with 6 maximals, then a mission with 1, then another mission with 4, then a mission with 1. Is there a mission pattern we weren't told about?

Meh, the bots are just as bad. We go through 3 hours periods when there are none, and then a few hours later theyre outnumbering us, but its always been like that.

Looks like the Maximals are starting to come out of hibernation.

I will continue to be pessimistic and look for solutions until proven wrong. It's kinda like how it was when I first started playing HMW though. No high level Maximals really to speak of. A few higher level Preds with more on the way rather quickly. Looks the same for the G1ers too. Lots of high level Cons, not a lot of high level bots.

Well, we'll see about that when we run the tournament for you Beasties next week.

You may well be right, but we'll only find out when something is a stake.

So, how about you actually enter the missions that you do get against us?

They can only be spawned by you guys, so one of you must have activated it.

almost all my builds are high avoid, but a few are high strafe or ram. all but 3 of my bots are strait up avoiders with high speed and strong secondary tactics.
2 are high ram/str 1 is fp/strafe still with avoid and speed

Changing subjects.

How has the mission change affected the G1 battles?
