Its gonna end badly for the Plundercons. Jack Hallows is everywhere and many more must be close to capturing me by now. I'm too scared to look at my mission logs at the min. :cry:

:CON: The Cons will win of course. :CON: (No thanks to me.)

Unfortunately for Jack he seems to have a problem with understanding the rules and has basically just wasted two claims.

I think posting his claims is fine. That's how you Con's have been winning. You get bonuses for the claims. The more claims we can post, the better for us Bots.

I was under the impression only one commander needed to be "captured" at a time to gain an advantage, having more than one would make no difference.

Where are those damn rules ...

-edit-

There we go ...
Only 1 player can be 'The Prisoner' at any one time.
The capturing faction gains an extra point for each WarMission victory whilst they still hold 'The Prisoner'.


So yeah, looks like he just wasted some claims.

Only 1 commander is taken prisoner at a time, and only +1 bonus is added at any time no matter how many commanders are captured.


As I'm scoring the game I won't discuss tactics with either side other than to say; the longer you hold control of the game, the better the bonus works for your side. How you wish to do that is entirely up to you and your faction.
I think you all have access to your relevant factions forums?

What I was referring to was that players shouldn't withhold posting a capture to move the bonus in our favor. We can't just rely on wins alone. The scoring shows that. The Cons are going toe to toe with us because of the bonus alone. If we take that from them, this game is ours.

This makes you think though; the bots are either better organised or just more numerous in the warmissions whereas the cons are eIther far more tactically minded or are just more ruthless as killers.

Two very different, and very interesting, aspects of the game there.

I think the bots just have the number advantage, while the con's are just better killers over all.

I've been thinking that for a while, kind of funnny really when you consider that that is exactly the set up from G1.

Each time we have it seems there is already a bot captured. So since only one can be its wait till the next one, I got scalps though.

Number wise it will always be the Cons that are better killers if the Bots have more numbers.
Problem is that there is a 1 to 3 bots playing to active bots. The Cons on the other have have more targets and less competition for kills on those targets so the kill ratio will be higher.

Outside of yesterday where lady RNG decided to turn her back on me, I've managed to maintain a steady stream of scalps. The problem is that those scalps are all on the same cons. For example I have about 15 scalps on Phaze but only 5 of his cons.... that sixth is starting to become a myth for me...

Man, I think I want Potentate tested for performance enhancing Energon or something. Looking over my deaths and the deaths of my team members; I think he and Burn are in a neck and neck race for top killer. :APPLAUSE:

I still just need 2 different kills to claim a Potentate scalp for myself.

Nah, RNG has been rough for me for about 2 or 3 days. Encryption is actually getting kills, as well as Decryption, however I think those brothers are glass cannon builds. When I have some more XP I am going to switch out the build to what you suggested to see if it is any better.

Sad, when I had a crappy connection and had my laptop tethered to my cell phone I was doing better than coming home to a 30mb connection.

WARPORNNEWSNETWORK


Tonight with the return your favourite co-hosts, Nemesis Wheelie and Zombi Cheerleader!!!
Image



- Hello Minions, I'm Zombie Cheerleader and as today is New years eve, we will be looking at Hairdressing during the war, with a special report from Tracks on just how you create that sparkle, when all around you is reduced to rubble.

- And I'm Nemesis Wheelie. We begin tonight's festivities with a special report on Scraplets, an irritation of the armour plating's more 'sensitive' regions suffered by an estimated 3 in 10 mechs, usually passed from chassis to chassis via unprotected Powerlinking and, for the luckier amongst you, Gestalt combining. *nudgenudge*

- This image taken by perceptor at gunpoint shows clearly what dangerous little buggers they are.
Image

- We asked the experts: In today's permissive society, why are people too scared to approach their medics for the correct protection, and what should you do if you or your any of your regular Powerlinking partners develop a painful brightly coloured transforming rash? Is it still safe to share a CR chamber with this 'friend'? And are the rumours that it came from touching too many fleshlings actually true?
All will be explained in slightly condescending manner later on in the show.

- As with all these 'linktually-transmitted' diseases, the most vulnerable to it are the youngest generation of Cybertronians. With both 'Gestalting' and Powerlinking on the rise the Autobot council of Medics, chaired by Absolute Zero, has released this stark warning: "It is always better to be safe than sorry - if you do feel that you want to Powerlink with a new partner, be it after a few fortified energons on a new years eve out or just because you are bored on a weeknight - be sure to protect yourself and if you are in any doubt get your interfaces tested first - no one wants a dose of the clang!" Wise words there, don't you think Wheelie?

- Gotta be better than the rash you caught from Iontrail eh, Zom-

- Well, that's all we have time for today, goodnight*snip*


Have a great new years guys! (and be safe eh? ;) )
