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

I thought you would need access to Iacon to be able to post your scalps?

PM Dragonslayer and have a chat to him. He's aware of such problems and might be able to find a way for you to slot in.
Re: HMW: Autobots, get your hunt on! (1076778)
Posted by Absolute Zero on May 20th, 2010 @ 6:05pm CDT
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.

No, as Burn has pointed out, I am aware that not all Autobots have access to Iacon as of now, but you may still participate if you wish. I'll keep track of your kills if you would PM me when you have any to claim.

I don't know that everyone has access to that forum either. Remember last year when a whole bunch of people lost access to it?

Frankly I think we could write that forum off as a bad experiment.

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 ;)^

Oh poo, I only have one warrior with one of those modes.

I guess I'll just have to be very careful what missions he goes in to make things interesting. :-B

Seems that way for most of the chosen alts.

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.

Yeah, when I was picking alts I was trying to fit the 'Cons I had made up and rarity and usage came second. Role playing, as it were :P That's why I implemented the multiple claim thing to try to make up for lack of targets. The next event I run (a scavenger hunt maybe?) I'll try to make things a little easier

Nah, it's cool. It just means if I wanna win, I should drop my lower guys to level 3. :D

sounds interesting

hope my guys can hold on and get a few scalps but we are of the junk so kills might be a problem lol

so the rule is they have to win the mission? or actually send that bot into stasis personally during the mission?

If you put the 'Con in stasis lock, then it's good. Doesn't matter if you win or lose the mission, I just care about the kills :twisted:

Alright Autobots! It is 12:00 here in Texas, which means that the hunt has officially begun!! Those of you who have access to Iacon, head on over to the Claims Thread and start tracking your progress; those that don't have access, simply PM me your kills and I will keep track for you (preferably, the fewer PMs I receive the better, but it's whatever)

Y'all have until midnight on Saturday to rack up as many kills as you can. Good luck and roll out! :grin:

Infact all my Grunts, Heavy and normal, are catered in that list. Sadly for you lot, they are the second 6 in my deployments, and sadder still, the 4 with the really shitty builds are my last 4 for deployment....

That said, I'll try to lob em in a bit more for y'all, now I've finally bothered to notice this thread.
