This is the Smelting Pool League
Taking the Heavy Metal War and adding extra metal.

The art of the gladiatorial arena retuns to Cybertron as the 4 factions face off against each other in a league that tests both the tactics and experience of the HMW commanders to the limit.

Firstly, congratulations again to Symbiote Spiderman 14 of the Decepticons for being the first ever ICL: Smelting Pool League Champion. His reward will be the alt of his choice for the next round.
Can he retain his crown in round 2, or will the spider get tangled in his own web?
Only time will tell...


...but that time is now - so, here are the budgets for Round 2!
XP limit: 25,000,000 XP
Level: Seven

Everything else - weapons, armour tactics etc. is all up to you and there are no restrictions but, as always, there is to be no resetting once the start date has been passed and the game has begun.


The rules are simple; nominate a single member of your HMW team, calculate a configuration of no more than 25 million XP that falls in the level 7 range, then PM it to 'The Huntmasters' using the form in the post below.
Then, once the game starts, build your warrior and join in the arena battles posting your victories in the special thread in HMW GD and the staff will do the rest.

The closing date for applications is 3rd July (thats a whole week away!) and the game is planned to start on the 6th July.

Also, as an advanced notice, scoring will be simplified - all you will need to do is list your Victories and shut-outs gloats (when your opponent scores 0xp) and this time and we will do the rest.


Anybody of any level can join the game, even if you weren't in round 1, but if you do have an existing SPL character you must re-submit that one, you are not allowed more than 1 league minion. Then, all you need to worry about is your energon, but your faction will be there to help you if you need it...

We have a special prize in store for the winner of round 2 - Make sure you get your characters backstory in order and listed as without it, you wont qualify for the prize...

Lastly, as a final note, please be sure to send configs only to The Huntmasters, If you have any questions please post them below or PM them to either Burn or myself directly.

It may make the prize interesting to award but yes, the sponsorship rule is still in effect.

THE BIG PRIZE

Okay guys, we have a VERY special prize for the winner of this round.

Before I say what it is, I want to throw a massive congratulations out to the prize provider, our very own Psychomud for coming second in the BotCon art contest. Check his DeviantArt page to see his Scarface inspired rendition of the Decepticon Apeface, along with other fabulous works, including my personal favourite, Deaths Head.

Getting back to the prize, Psychomud has very graciously agreed to do a piece of artwork based on the winning character of this round.

There is one small catch however.

Your character MUST be an original creation of your own creation complete with a fleshed out bio. It must NOT be a canon character or have much of a resemblance to a canon character (e.g. Optimus Prime1).

Don't like that condition? Well tough. When HMW2 gets here you won't be able to have canon characters under your command anyway so consider this a warm up!

But what if the winner of this round is a canon character?

Simple, it defaults to the highest ranked fan made non-canon character.

So that's it, that's the prize. Create a character, flesh it out in a bio, and win the chance to see your creation drawn and brought to life by a BotCon Award Winning Artist. Pretty cool eh?

Northclaw will return, if only to make sure he has a few dance partners when he enters the arena (about the only place he can go these days.)

I doubt I'll win though, but I've got a peice I commissioned from the Gearsmith on DevArt that hopefully should be finished soon. I need to check.

I gather upgrading our characters is OK so long as we keep within Level 7?

Do we get to keep the stats?

You keep track of your shutouts, wins and ties. No tracking losses. Your league score will be tabulated the tournament officials. I personally am going to keep track the number of losses I have (not who I lost to, just the number) so I can keep track of my own league score.
