Anybody know what happens in the event of a tie; do both of them get introduced 'first', do we go to a tie-breaker, what?

Well, its past the 2 weeks and as you all can see... the Hellfire Shotgun and Cosmic Rust Cannon won, which means that Phaze (HS) and Jack Hallows (CRC) will both win a personalised version of their suggested weapon.

Well done guys!



The rest of you will get to see these launched after we have statted then up over the next few days. The other weapons that got voted on will also most likely make it into the game, but wont be 'til after these have been released.



Thanks for all your help guys, and feel free to yell out more suggestions and ideas. We all know that what we can do to spice up the game is limited, but we will do our best to keep it as fresh as possible for you all!

I know the voting is over and all that, but I'm hopeful that in the future...well, two things. One: I'd like to see more swords/blades with higher requirements. A sword with a 10/10 firepower/skill requirement, for instance. But even more importantly, two: more weapons of all sorts that require more skill and less firepower. The majority of "dual requirement" weapons require far more firepower than they do skill, which means that there's no "intermediate" weapon to use if you build up your firepower to say, 5, and then want to start boosting firepower.

That being said: I love that the weapons roster has been increased since I started playing some months ago; thanks to the moderators for doing all this. :)

If anything new does come up, we won't be seeing it - except for one or two 'background' types who'll suddenly find themselve prominent and full of awesome, we'll all be eliminated to make room for said 'new'...

Which is actually good for me - young, arrogant and stupid becomes the new Autobot leader, after all.
