Where are all the autobots?!?

Postby Demonss » Wed Dec 14, 2011 12:12 pm

Seriously..
I remember why I stopped playing before and never got anywhere..
There's virtually no Autobots on so it ends up being my 1 autobot vs 6 decepticons..
Yay for constantly being in the CR chamber...

Perhaps it's just because my bots are all level 0? It's depressing playing alone.. :(

Its funny, when you start getting into higher levels you will be asking "Where are all the Decepticons?!?!" There are like 4 or 5 at higher levels. Once you pop into level 1 you will start seeing them. Also once you start getting higher in levels you will get a ton of backup from Vic and myself.

Well...

That's certainly helpful to someone who's trying to point out that a game where you repetitively lose over and over and over tends to not be much fun..

What do you want me to do about it? I can't go out and sign people up.

Oh and Burn encouraging people? You're mistaking me for crazyfists, he's the nice one.
We killed him though.

Two things you find out over time.
We rarely stay on topic for more than two posts and we have Burn. Have fun with both things. Just don't feed him after midnight.

Good news is that at Rank 0 you don't charged for the CR. If you can stick it out with relatively consistent play time you can hit level 1 in at least a month. From there it gets worse, but you will have backup from the level 2. Bots come into their own around level 5-9

At level 0, you're almost better off in the arena. I know, I know, it's broken, but, you're still getting XP, you just don't know how much unless you record your XP as you go through it.

Burn, you seem awfully upset there suddenly. Something wrong?

Burn is right, no matter if he didn't actually name a name, the finger is pointed and play style shot down. It is rather rude, and it is the nature of the game to play in various ways. Just because you play one way and someone else plays another doesn't make it dumb, stupid or anything else.

Level 0 can be a tough slog. Hang in there. It gets more fun. My team is only at level 3, but I can see that I've made a difference in some of the missions I've been in. Don't give up. Think of level 0 as a test. Can you pass it? Good luck. :BOT:

Keep at it. I have half my team at level 1 and half at level 0. I have a mixed bag as far as odds are concerned but I get thru it for the most part. I do notice that at this time of day there are not a lot of level 1 'Bots in the missions which makes it real boring regardless if my 'Cons are "winning". It is almost the opposite for my level 1 'Cons at this time.

Once you figure out the timing things get better.

That you are an Autobot at all is a minor miracle. Stick with it if you can, L0 is over pretty quick and whilst 1 can be a bit of a grind at first there are plent of bots to back you up around late level 1/early level 2.

As for the rest of you in this thread, unless you are talking about helping this guy out, shut it. You can get it all out of your system next week.

Well if your problem is being outnumbered i'd suggest a build of 2-3 spd plus a point or two of avoid. If your the only bot against six cons you have a good shot of gaining more then them. Since there all trying to split the xp between six where you have six targets. Plus every avoid is 50 xp and 50 energon also no cr cost for you. Sometimes wininng is about more then who's side wins but the gains over the opposition.

Interesting thanks for this!
That's exactly the case that caused me to post this yesterday is that every time I reviewed what happened it was generally like 4-5 vs 1.
Which was frustrating.

I did get some good tips though and with most of my characters getting their first points to be placed they seem to be performing a bit better. So that's always good.

Good deal man. Stick with it you'll find the game gets better. Plus don't be a stranger on the boards. We are a fun community as long as you don't take us to seriously. If you need more advice feel free to PM me i'm sure Anshin will help you also. He has a good grasp of game mechanics and such.

Glad you took my advice Demonss; I've been following some of your missions and you do seem to be doing pretty good in them.

If you need any more advice or Energon, just let any of us know. Secondly, like slip mentioned, don't be a stranger on the board. The banter is half the game. And for every person trying to put you down, there's plenty of guys who will help you out.
