Opposite Faction Altmodes?

Postby darksabrz » Fri Aug 24, 2012 12:41 pm

*sneaks in, taps microphone* Is this thing on? Oh, good. Been a LONG time since I've been around these parts (let alone the RDD forums and the like, to which I've lost the URL AGAIN... one of these days, I'll have a stable computer, I swear).

Anyway, my question: I've noticed that some characters have the opposing faction altmodes (like seeing the Autobot Car Carrier heavy vehicle alt on Decepticons as a tank, or seeing the Decepticon Power Digger construction vehicle alt on an Autobot). Is this a prize for tournaments, or how does it work?

I use to just send cheap beer to Burn's house he was drunk enough to start a tournament. He loves things like Bud, Nat Ice, and Odules

Its ok. Nobody really drinks those things either. They mostly just look at it and wonder why the water is yellow and tastes funny.

Think you're a bit confused there Psych, that's American beer. Aussie beer, well... the saying "getting on the piss" sums it up Image

Done just now, and posted that I'm not some silly spam-bot or anything like that.

Speaking of which... where are the uber-weapons coming from? I've had some missions where I've literally been one-hit killed (admittedly, not much STR/END/RNK to bolster a decent defense on them just yet, but still...), and I'm admittedly shaking my head. Are they just renamed weapons, or what's the deal with them?

wish you were around for the whole "Silent Night" event, you'd have most likely gotten one of some sort too. but the more recent ones were prizes from a "devise a new weapon" contest the admins had. Phase & I won and received a special weapon for it.

Ahh, okay. Ironically, Jack, you were the one who one-shot me with that Mournhowl. But since the character had something like STR 3/END 3/RNK 2 Vanadium armor, it's not like I had a lot of protection to begin with.

Some of the weapons your being one hit by are custom weaponry as jack mentioned jack and myself where lucky enough to win the Silent night competition and got rewarded with the custom weapons slightly different to the run of the mill versions

No armour offers any protection from a bored Mod who decides to see how much of the control panel works by deleting things.

Just saying ... >:oP

They're beatable, more so with my lack of backup these days.

Heh, I've noticed much the same, in regards to the lack of backup. I have my suspicions about why that's the case. But it's not going to be changing any time soon, not as long as Decepticons keep either being outnumbers anywhere from 3-1 to 5-1, or a bunch of low-levels eat up spots in the 1-11s and let all the high-level Autobots have a field day with free target practice.
