You mean the final scores as a news article? ...that probably would have worked, well try and do that for next time, thank you for the suggestion! :D

Did you manage to level up at all whilst playing in the tourney? I don't know what level 0 is like these days.

Final Score: :BOT: 179-235 :CON:

Autobots. That’s not a bad way to go down. Not at all. Damn fine job, Autobots. Damn fine job indeed..

Image

Decepticons: Way to clean up the mess you lot started with those illegal experiments! Y’all are lucky the Autobots were on hand to help you beat back the hordes of Sharkticons you created! ;)

Also, Psychout, my man... I seem to always be “that” guy lol, but Ric Casino posted a couple links in the thread on time, but in a post separate from his sign in one. These locks gave him a final score of 2:
Lio @1:46
Octodon @1:31
I know it wont help the Bots get any closer to winning, I just wanna make sure my boy gets his proper showing on the boards if the post placement didn’t disqualify his submissions.

If counted, that would make the final score:

181-235

that’s 54 missions, Autobots. Way to keep pace while outnumbered. :BOT:

The Cons are lucky Steve was busy ;)

responses to personal replies:

@Pinkimus (Lol, well played)
I’ve got some of the best help possible already but your offer is welcomed and appreciated.

About the second coming comment: I don’t see myself as anything like that, but I will fiercely defend the game we worked hard to achieve so much in if it seems that anyone is taking advantage of it, that’s all.

That doesn’t make me a Matrix Templar, it just makes me an officer of the Tyrest Accords.Image

I know I became sort of an Autobot extremist about it, and some of it came across as me lookin self important, but I carry a lot of Autobot pride for the Bots who aren’t here with us today.

Having said that though, I know I gotta work with the Autobots who are here today, so we can become stronger than ever in our small numbers.

Y’all know the past strength of the Autobot army was Legendary, and it was a silent strength (not silent as in not posting, but silent as in our cohesion goes without needing to be discussed) The Autobots are going to regain that.

About the RDD stuff, I got no problem with y’all as long as no game bugs get exploited. I think that’s fair. All I ask is that the references to me on social media be removed and any clowning y’all want to do to me gets done in a space where I am able see it and not behind my back.

About the color, it’s worse than our attitudes this past month lol.

@Naval Strike. Apology accepted but not necessary. I appreciate your honesty, I can fully relate to it. *Gives daps*.

This week you definitely earned your unsanctioned aerial rescue vehicle alt that saved your lucky aft from being points on the board for Autobots ya lucky bastid. Image

@Psych
Thanks mang. I may not be lucky or modest, but I strive for genuosoty lol.

I hear what you’re saying and I will try to do more “Image” as opposed to “Image”. No promises though :twisted:

& I would love to make short posts, but I be having so much to respond to that my posts end up becoming Tolkien-esque in their reading requirements.

Also, thank you for the compliment on the score, I stayed up a full 24 hours deploying, and had to sift through around 250 links 2x to make sure you didn’t have to correct anything.

@Wrath
Thank you for saying what you said and for understanding. It’s going to be hard to stop the guerrilla-style fighting but I will see what I can do lol.

Despite the tension, this is the most fun I’ve had in years on here, thanks everyone.

Now I go back to Iacon for a while and attempt to patch up the holes in the walls from internal blaster fire lol.

Oh and,
When you challenge Decepticons to step their game up in HMW.

D'aww... Bring it in for a hug my special little man!

I didn't see the bit in your post where you were ready to kiss and make up with me but I'm sure you're saving that for its own tl;dr post with screenshots and everything.

I do so look forward to that
The opinions expressed in this post are well-reasoned and insightful.
Needless to say, they are not those of SEIBERTRON.COM, its staff members, or any other site lackeys.
Anyone who says otherwise is itching for a fight.

You're welcome! I figure it would give the winners a moment of fame and advertise the game to more people. What could be awesome is if one of the leading Autobot players (like Jack) could write up a "war article" looking for more Autobot trainees. Just a thought, though.

It's hard with level 0 characters because there's not as much new meat nowadays. I did get one 'bot up and couple others are much closer than before.

Can you see into the Iacon forum? Its a private one for just 'bot players and I'm sure a few of the guy and gals there would love to help you.

Getting your first level 1 is a great feeling, it opens up a much bigger (albeit more dangerous) level of the game. The slog to level 2 hard, but fun. The 1-11 missions are a proper gamble, but if you are brave and set your guys up right you have a reasonable chance of pulling in a brilliant haul in amongst all the 0/0s you'll inevitably get.

Lastly, the Null-Ray Rifle is a great weapon to use until you have some points in strength or skill. ;)

Please close your trenchcoat and place your hands behind your back, sir.

Well, you eared everything you took home this event, so there ain’t no squabble from me. But if you want I can post all the screenshots I have of your lil cretins gettin 0’d out in missions lol Image
Regarding kissing and making out, spoiler tags are awesome and i just want to make you do extra work trying to see what’s written here muahahaahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa ;)

@Nexus Knight. That’s a great idea. Like an “Uncle Kup needs you!” type of motivational service poster kind of thing. I’ll see what I can do; no promises that anything produced won’t be complete rubbish though.. you know the high standards this place has lol. Grats on your first lvl 1. Report to the locker room for hazing um.. congratulatory horseplay :-D

Hey whoa! You know I got love for you Burn, that’s why I always give you a hard time. Especially in private ;) hubba hubba.. But yes, you did do a lot to make things run smoothly even with a storm bearing down on you. That’s dope, and no one can take that from you - even if they don’t mention it without it being brought up first lol. #-o

& Sustain always does an outstanding job and knows how much I fangirl over those concepts lol.

I just can’t say any of this stuff publicly and possibly tarnish my reputation an ungrateful, egotistical, self righteous, demanding, holier than thou, ostracizable, non helpful piece of Autobot slag that needs to shut their aft the flarx up. :lol:

and WINGZ. I have nothin but love for ya. I’ll say it as many times as it takes. We may have seen differently at times, but that doesn’t mean slag. You can’t dislike the person keep your hindquarters intact on deployments lol (that’s you keeping my aft intact, for clarity).. But we like you for much more than your repair abilities. That’s why you got yourself a promotion in private before any of this other stuff jumped off. You remember!

k i’ve reached my allotted post limit. I see Psychout holding up the yellow card in the stands lol

Don't flatter yourself. You're much worse than that.

I'll be honest, I no longer like you. When you first appeared on the scene you were an amusement, we all could joke and get along with you, but now that I've seen the REAL Jack Hallows, yeah, I don't like you. And I truly truly hope the feeling is mutual so we can drop this charade of pretending to be nice to each other.

Oh and before anyone brings it up, any flare ups between he and I will be dealt with by one of the other site Moderators, and yes, they've been told on multiple occasions that they can issue me with warnings if need be.

You’re one to talk. But then again that could be the real you so who knows.

Tell you what: I don’t take slag or unprofessionalism from someone with a duty to uphold. I also keep it in game and not personal. I’m also transparent when asked things and don’t tell people they aren’t owed anything from me. If I don’t have anything to say to a person, I won’t say anything.

There are other things, but we’ll keep it brief.

Basically, you don’t mess with me and I’ll do likewise. And if you do mess with me, keep it on topic like we’re supposed to do.

When I talk to you, I do so as me, not the Forum Admin (except those few times I've pleaded with you to pull your head in). There is a difference. One will speak to you honestly, will joke around, throw out a few insults (It's an Australian thing. Seriously.), the other will tell you when you're breaking the forum rules or doing stuff that has the potential to bring the forums into disrepute.

I fully understand it's hard to look past the title, MANY people have that problem, but for the most part when I post, it's just me, and yes, this is how I would deal with people face to face as well. It's not a facade, it's not a persona (unless it involves the troops, then that's mostly me just blowing smoke up my own arse). I work anywhere between 40-44 hours a week, plus I have commitments to two community groups (all voluntary) and strolling the hallways of Seibertron.com whacking spambots on the head and tapping people on the shoulder (I get paid in the form of abuse and threats of physical violence. Don't believe me? I can show you the emails). So I actually think I'm a pretty decent bloke, loves a joke, won't bullshit you, but won't tolerate bullshit either.

What I say now, I say as the Forum Admin, and it's the last time I'm saying. Stop being so antagonistic, and don't act the victim when people treat you the same way. You have started all this drama of the last few weeks. Every piece of muck and **** thrown at you has been in reaction to you.

I can't control what is said about you off-site, but I can do something about it here. I readily encourage people to use the "Report this post" button, that alerts the Moderators (who, after I post this I will contact and ask them to start looking in on this sub-forum more often) who can then step in and deal with things. I know a few people over the years don't use the button because they've got "thick skin" or want to handle things themselves, which is fine and dandy, but what they don't realise is by taking it upon themselves, things continue to build until it erupts.

So going forward, the only communication between you and I will be as Forum Admin and Member.

And now that we have all that out of the system, we'll let this tournament drift off into the sunset so we can start prepping for the next one.
