I don't know if handing out level ups is such a good thing. Level 0 Bots need all the help they can get.
Even when they trash my bird, Decepticons still win:

Just a random idea that may very well take some work and be otherwise impractical.

But building on the "handing out some free XP" notion, perhaps give every character (or every character currently identified as active) a free 100k (or some number)experience payout. That could benefit all the characters in the game, from the ones who have trudged up the ranks the hard way to the ones who are languishing in the lower levels with no opponents, or very few.

That way it would be an across the board benefit for all characters. Those characters/players on the higher end obviously wouldn't need it or benefit from it as much,nor should they, but it would at least be something, and for the lower level characters they could do quite a bit with 100k (or some number) and could more rapidly bump their characters up into the more competitive and active tiers.

Maybe make it a yearly thing, like a Christmas bonus for those few players who actually stick around and keep playing. It might be tedious to give a boost to every single character or active character, but it's not like the mods of this section have anything else to do right now :P

Hence my thinking that it would likely be tedious work, but still conceivably doable.

There's also no real way of telling who's active short of going through hundreds of missions.

Doable yes, worth it? Noooooo.

Do you have any access in here?

I have access to this toasted sandwich I just made in the kitchen at work, so that must count for something. :lol:

And come on, if Santa Claus can get his ass around the whole world in one day and deliver gifts to all the good little boys and girls, surely an HMW mod could do the same for us :P

But yes, I realize the task is likely both tedious and impractical, but I wanted to throw it out there just the same. I know I would get a weird little kick seeing all my HMW characters having an xp boost they didn't have before.

I'll be soliciting for energon donations soon. Stardust has nice, expensive armor he wants to buy.

If commanders came to the forum and saw the XP list.. they could sign up for their boost. I'm willing but not going to hunt them down.
