Is it really that hard to see a simple solution? And no, this isn't spam or flaming/trolling.
1st: Why the rush?
2nd: Big deal the logs got wiped. It's not that bad actually. It's not "Oh my god! The world's going to end! Get to the bomb shelters!" The logs being wiped shouldn't matter.
3rd: The solution is so simple, I'm actually kind of surprised no one else has posted it.
If a special hunt was to determine who got a license and who didn't, then why not just run a special hunt for the licenses? 7 day spree. Top 3 killers of each faction gets a license. I'm only suggesting on the numbers, 7 is a full week, and 3x4=12, which is a full team. I like numbers that relate to something else, and I think it's fair to all four factions to be represented.
For rules, I'd either go with only signed up people count, or, since not all hunters really give a damn about colateral damage, all kills count. If it's only sign-up kills that count, I suggest counting arena kills too, since hunters may be required to stalk their prey into the arena, they should have to show their prowess in one on one battles as well.
Now, where's my cookie.
And not for the part of this not related and me replying is kinda like playing a brit in CoD. Annoying as hell. Laggy arse bastardos.

We don't do what now?
and the rules for this game went from achievable for the best of each faction to just everyone from the Bots and Cons only well that's **** up.
Here's the thing, I went back and re-read that 10 page discussion regarding ideas for implementing this bounty hunting scheme. 10 pages of which YOU participated.
There was only ever ONE mention (from Psychout) of what would be required to obtain a license (a 12 team claim). Not one person cottoned onto that little fact and discussed it.
I couldn't be arsed to go read through 10 pages of posts while I was shooting british children in their faces, what's up with them anyway? Letting little girls (or atleast they sounded like little girls) playing a M rated game. Don't you guys have standards? Shouldn't they be at school by now too?
Back on track! If you're going to reference something, you need to reference it in context, and not just pull part of it out. I expect better from you Burn. If I recall correctly, and I normally do, Psychout said the second+ round of licenses would be awarded to those who scalped the entire team of licensed hunters. Which is fair, I think, and balanced. Yes, Preds and Maximals will have a hard time scalping a full Bot or Con team, however, there'd be no issues between the two really. The numbers are a little closer (I believe it's 2:1 for Maxies, opposed to 5:1 for Bot vs Pred). It also gives you a specific target, instead of say me going and scalping a team full of level 0s with no upgrades. Just going "Scalp any 12 members of any team" is going to make actually playing the game a chore and a half for anyone who actually wants a license. They'd have to make their own threads tracking each and every kill from every single mission, trying to find out who they got and if they've gotten any one else from that team before. Does that sound fun to you?
