Here ya' go guys, a few of the promised new missions have been added to allow the higher level players here a chance to stretch their mechanical legs and cause a bit of havoc.

Be sure to check back into the Heavy Metal War discussion boards to see how this affects the game over the next few months and to watch for any other changes that may be coming over the next few weeks.

Just curious: Why are the Xp/€ payouts minimized at the new missions?

Minimized XP/Energon? Explain.

As a follow on to the Max/Pred missions - my mission win rate has increased for my team by 2% since the changes. Given how many missions have been played in total, that actually translates to winning some 90+% of my missions since the change. That may not be the balance the changes were looking for.

Further, G1/Pred is nearly non-existent; understanding that the new missions introduce some more of the opportunities, it seems like Beast and G1 are wholly or mostly isolated from each other. Perhaps the time to dial up the G1/Beast dial is coming up soon given how, as I understand it, the Bots are getting pounded just as badly as the Maximals are.

Information dump, </end> Let the experimentation continue.

The new mission gives only 100 Xp/ 50 € for base, while the base payout by a lv.2+mission used to be 300Xp/150€

The mission pay out was reduced a while ago. Back when the Pred/Maxis were first introduced because back then, the Gen 1ers were flooding the missions for the free XP payout that was over 100.

They are trying. Their victories aren't quite as amazing as they could be but there are some losses (and I'm accepting the XP gain in them).

Another thought would be to mix some 4v4 missions in for the Beasts; could encourage some more interesting brawls. Otherwise, let the experiment continue.

Predacon Journal Day 02:

New Missions we were told about seem to be myth. No one has seen them. They're like the earth game Star Wars Force Unleashed, an eternal rumor that is supposedly coming out but never will. Fellow Predacons have noted the increase in winning, but are lementing the most valuable resource on this planet, XP. Decepticons have come forward taunting us, claiming it's an addiction. If so, then they are far more addicted to it then we are. Despite their best efforts to halt our growth, however, two more Predacon warriors have attained level 3 threat status. The engineer known as Exia and melee fighter known as Rikou have both been upgraded in their threat rating today.

PPX-23 Day 3

Attempts to bring hope to the test subjects has been met with critisism. Better than I had hoped. Seems the experiment has left the subjects bitter and distrustful. I have been counseled by HQ that my "taunting" of the subjects may render the test results invalid. I disagree, my actions have been used to gauge if the experiment has changed the temperment of the test subjects. Continued research required. I almost feel bad for the preds. I remember a time I could only hope for a mission where my troops brought back 50xp or more. But the times were different then. It was not a lack of opponent that troubled us, but a overwhelming number. We did not have the troop capcity to mount a decent defense resulting in the broken morale of our younger commanders.

thats like sayin you asked for a wooden train set when you were 5, and your parents are just now giving it to you.

yes we did ask for more, but not exclusive. all day i've seen 2 or 3 non beast missions. 2-3 over 14 hours? still havent seen the new missions that the news talked about. The maxi's are sparse, with the exception of short bursts of players every few hours, and even then it only lasts an hour at most. when i get more xp losing against people in the arena, than i do winning missions, why do missions?

the maxi's aren't active enough. they don't play that often. i get 8-10 no opposition missions, its discouraging. the preds didn't even fill all the missions. we never had that problem when there were 2 more factions. i've gone from getting between 500-1000 an average mission to 100-300 on an average mission. the slightly less cr time doesnt make a difference.

also i've heard the bots are now getting stomped, and the maxi's are too. We don't even have a chance to change factions if we don't like it (not that i would, but the option would be nice). this went from one extreme to the other. almost no maxi missions, to almost nothin but maxi missions. Granted it's probably great for beginners, but now the xp isn't enough.

If it had been done from the get go it would be a different story.
its more like what am i gonna do with this now? would've been awesome if i had it at a different point in time. 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.

It's funny, as I see there are plenty of maximal commanders around (I encountered 3 different teams in the arena in the last hour)

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.

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.
