- Good evening. I'm Zombie Cheerleader

- And I'm the other one. Tonight we bring you a special report on Decahex, and the increasing levels of violence in the region that may or may not be as a result of the collapse of Cybertrons last remaining energon mine. We now pass you over to Hazard, our expendable reporter who we only send to the really dangerous places:
did I do to deserve this? Last time I sign anything Psychout tells me t-*Gah! That was close!* What?? Oh, I'm here on the outskirts of Decahex mine 4 which, until last week, was the last remaining active mine on Cybertron. Accident investigators have now fled the scene, but their initial findings point to a deliberate act of sabota*AAARGH!!*. Phew. Despite the mines extensive security and the region being demilitarised many centuries ago it is certainly clear that whoever was able to get in here had high level clearance and good knowledge of explosives. Naturally, both factions want to ensure that whatever remains of the mines ore is taken for their purposes and so there has been fierce fighting all over the zone with many casualties, mostly accident investigators. Outposts from both factions have now called for reinforcements and the way tensions are escalating it would appear- *WOAH!! that was too close! Someone tell these idiots to stop shooting at u-* Ahem. Now, nowhere is safe in this region. Both factions have fortified various entrances to the mine and have dug in deep in preparation and are heavily armed. It is going to be a long battle, and *HEY! WATCH IT, JOURNALIST!!*
...I'm getting the hell out of here!
- Hazard there, reporting bravely from a long way way behind the front lines.

- With the destruction of Mine 4, most supply routes across Cybertron have been heavily disrupted so we decided to check in on Iacon's barracks, where various Autobot commanders have reported in after last weekends neural upgrade request. We now go live to Prowl as he gives his soldiers another briefing on the situation...
As you all know, the field test will in Decahex next week and these units will be fitted in the next few days. You will relieve the security and investigation teams, allowing them to establish exactly who is responsible for the mines destruction, hopefully by recovering the real security tapes and not the faked one those idiots at WarPorn News have been broadcasting. No one here thinks it's a coincidence that only a 'senator' would have access to the mine schemat
- Ah, we'll just leave that there.

- And finally, we have a statement from Starscream, who has taken time out from his usual deliveries to bring us this message:
Decepticons, you have 4 days left to to upgrade your Neural Scanners before we head out to take what's left of Decahex for the Decepticon empire. I don't need to tell you how important this mine is to our cause. So remember, Megatron does not tolerate failure and neither shall I!
- So there you have it - 4 days left to report in for the upgrade, and reinforcements will be deployed in a week. Hmmm. Does any one here think that not broadcasting all these details publicly might prevent a lot of the bloodshed and violence or could maybe help bring peace to our crippled planet?

- Nah.




4 days left to sign up...

Well I have a killer toaster and a killer squirrel on my team and I am willing to bet 100 energon that neither you or Sustain have ever defeated Burn or Psychout in the past few months. :lol:

interms of kills didn't i just beat him on this weeks xp games or was i mistaken as for burn dunno he don't play games he goes for the throat :lol:

I don't play because people were getting pissed off at my constant brags. Plus it was time to let others have a go.

And I don't go for the throat. My bots tend to beat things up and let others get the kills. Quite annoying at times but I do tend to hog the xp.

Eh either way, Phaze and Sustain teamed up for the Wintereen games, so I took you and Psychout because I knew they couldn't defeat the toaster and the squirrel.

Wasn't a real brag I just like the toaster and the squirrel... If we could only get a moose alt now.

Yeah it did occur to me that like a dropbear landing on your head you'd be wondering wtf was going on

It all started in the Xp Games thread Sutain suggested that we team up and stomp bots in the Silent Night Tourney. Anshin couldn't find any decent help on the Bot side so took dibs on your good self and Psyke

Let's play a little game Anshin, should be interesting.

Your challenge - Stasis lock the squirrel as many times as possible.

My challenge - Score as many 100% strafes as possible.

Gah.. I think you may win. That squirrel is my nemesis on your team. I think Catalyst is the only other one that does more damage to me... but I'm down.

Game on.

I thought I was handing the victory to you actually.

As far as terms go, there are none. I've been getting a few 100% strafes lately, I founded the 100% Strafe Club, I'm probably it's most prolific member, but I'd like to prove that to MYSELF and this is an added incentive to do so.

The Autobots are grossly outnumbered, well that happened when the first Con signed up. Can you Bots somehow convince Scorch, Beyonder, Conjurous, Cooter and Kurn96 to sign up. They will at least provide the Bots with some desperately needed(at this time) firepower. You can't rely on Zordon to clean up all your messes. I would hate for this thing to be over before it began. MWHAAHAAHAA :CON:

Just some in character ribbing. Sarcasm doesn't translate well here for whatever reason.

Oh no, you're locked in for life when you sign a contract with Warporn Industries. <.< >.> I hear they take your spark too. It's in the fine print.

Hmmm do i even have one of those? Maybe i left it in the other safe?


If not, I also hear they have a great spark transplantation plan. You might end up liking pink afterwards though.

Nothing wrong with a bit of pink. 8)
