Hey guys,
OS has made some alterations to the Heavy Metal War missions!

As well as modifying the mission brackets to account for our new level 4's over the next few days, we've tweaked a few of the mission genration rules in the hope that they work a bit better for you all from now on.

1) ALL Predacon and Maximal mission weightings have set to the lowest amount so they should now ONLY triggered by a Max/Pred being active.
2) Likewise, Bot v Con and Pred v Max mission weightings have been raised so these should now be the auto generated ones.
3) ALL BW v G1 missions have been reduced to 4v4 participants
4) Pred v Max missions have been left at 6v6


So, drop in to HMW:GD and tell us you think, is it any better?

Tell us if that keeps happening, then we can turn up the cross-generational mission for you.

Man, and that happened when the preds started to give good opposition... :P

Looking forward for some new missions (although I'm still waiting for filling the missing weapon combinations).

I think most of the maximal players have left, and the change would have helped 2 months ago honestly. For the a while now a majority of the maxi/pred missions have had either no maximals or maybe 2 at most with the occasional full side. The next people I sent into missions today after you posted the change in the missions had the choice of either making the missions 5-1 for the Preds, or 3-1 for the Preds.

Any chance you can swing faction changes anytime soon? If you post up a thread asking for people to post if they want to switch, then leave it running for a couple of days, you can probably get the people who want to switch done in maybe an hour.

Preds, keep us informed if we need to raise the chances of cross genration missions for you guys.

I havnt seen much other than max missions in a bit too, but there's a couple of maximals about right now, so it isnt the worst.

yeah, i like the idea of fighting maxi's more, but there is no opposition. we're getting 6 on 1's and its hurtin the xp gain.

i appreciate that things are finally getting overhauled, but i was also finally gettin good at taking on worthy oppoents.

It would work IF MAXIMALS WOULD ACTUALLY PLAY

edit: i do love the concept, and does this mean if no maxi's are playin we get to spawn con and bot missions?

i think it would be nice if preds and maxi's could still spawn bot con missions more just so we could get xp

just let the new missions to sync up and we will all have full missions with lots of xp gains to go around :)

Haven't seen either a Pred or Maxi mission in a while. Just Bot vs Con.

those aren't good xp.

i was gettin 700-900 per mission on average fightin bots and cons. They also dont make up for the 3 no opponent missions and the 3 that i got 150 xp for before those.

i understand for maxi's those are good missions, but it's gonna hurt my chances of gaining ground on the bots/cons on the scoreboards, and keep me from gettin level 3's in a timely manner

[color=red]Work for our XP?!? Pfft. We're either in missions with unlosable odds, or in full beast missions, where we win easily, at least thats the results *I* have been getting thus far.

Even when you lot turn up, all it does is give us more xp.[/color]

Goddamn ... you Preds know how to bloody whinge don't ya's? :shock:

First your outnumbered so you say "give us more Beast only missions"

So you get your Beast only missions now you complain about the lack of opposition!

Give the new setups a chance! It's only been a few hours and it's pretty much Friday night everywhere so people may simply not be around.

[color=red]Im not whinging, just observing the facts. N-V's whinging, but then he always does. And the Maxis are whinging, cuase they're shit. :P

EDIT:
However, I have to say this, no pred I know has seen a G1 mission since the changes were made. Right now, you can argue if that is a bad thing or not, and personally, im not too fussed, however, when it comes to the next tournie, this leaves us with a bit of a problem, as it effectivly has turned into two seperate wars that shall never mix.[/color]

yeah when you get more xp losin to the bots/con than you do winning against maxi's its dicouraging.

Its sad that the arena is the best option for xp now

And in fairness, we did want more beast missions, but now the maxi's have jumped ship and we've had to fight the bots/con and got used to high xp, now we can't get any good xp and its hurting us. If the maxi's had more higher level bots it might be do-able, but all the missions have 1 level 2 and the rest 1's and zeros.

In theory i would love to kill maxi's but its shooting fish in a barrel, or pouring boiling oil on an ant hill, you kill a bunch, but don't get anything for it

edit*I'm not whining, I'm b!tch!ng

It's a start children. I personally think it's late, but better late then never right? And at least the staff is trying to give us a far chance.
