Weapon: Black Magic
Cybertron; a planet destroyed.

History calls it:
Heavy Metal War: First Generation.

You watched, as for millennia the Autobots and Decepticons fought a civil war that ended when Optimus Prime, making the ultimate sacrifice, hurled himself and his nemesis Megatron into the core of Cybertron, uniting it with the Matrix.

The shockwave crashed all transformer-descended life across the universe.
The Great War was ended, but the cost was huge.

This was ‘The Great Reset’


Image

The time for the First Generation was over, thus began:
Heavy Metal War: The Organic Age

You saw Cybertron, devastated and drifting in space until struck by an alien asteroid.
From this, a new species of Transformer evolved; Efficient, smaller, just as powerful - maybe even deadlier. Heroic peacekeepers and warlike predators took the names Maximal and Predacon and war resumes for a new generation whilst the Autobots and Decepticons, reactivated as weapons of war, broke free to continue to their unending battle across Cybertron.

Image

Now it is time for you to join that war.

Maximal, Autobot, Predacon, Decepticon; four factions fighting for Cybertron; to protect her; to bring her peace; to conquer her; to make her the seat of power in the universe. Will you choose to further Cybertron’s evolution and stop the archaic first generation tearing your planet apart or will you choose the fight to eradicate this new organic disease that has infected your home and decendants?

Chose your allegiance carefully:
ImageMaximals; Reluctantly fighting the Predacon’s to bring order to your world, drawn deeper into conflict by the warlike ways of the ancient Autobots and Decepticons that ravaged the planet so long ago. All must be stopped if order is to survive.

ImagePredacons; Fighting to seize control of Cybertron and purge the weak Maximal fools, to return the world it to its natural chaotic state ruled by us alone. If the ancients try to stand in our way, then they will be destroyed for none can oppose our might.

ImageImage Or chose to follow the ancient path of the Autobot or Decepticon survivors, continue the great galactic war that raged across the universe, and purge the planet of all who would oppose you or threaten your freedom.

Defend or destroy, purge or protect?

Four Warring Factions
Heavy
Two Generations
Metal
One Planet
War

The strategy game that's more than meets the eye..

I totally agree.

And I also enjoyed it. It was fun to read. We need more things like this.

Geez, was it really necessary to post that mission three times? We honestly didn't do that bad; you outleveled us and we still took out five of you.

So basically,

Or, you know, you can go Con or Bot too. Loser.


Now I wish I had gone Pred again. :-(


But it's a pretty good idea, could do well in getting new players involved.

Crimson Ghost just hit level 1. And yes, I did. I don't brag often, but when I do, it's usually something worthy. And there's also the fact that no one hit him at all, even with all of the other Preds going down. That's what I'm bragging about.

*edit* I also remember you bragging about killing a whole lot of people lower level then you in a tournie too, so forgive me if I don't particulary worry if I hurt your feelings. :grin:

I love this game...I'm loving it man! :')

But what really bothers me is that the Maximals and Predacons can choose to be vehicles as their alt form... does that even make sense?
On the flip side I think Autobots and Decpeticons shouldn't be anything but vehicles and the like...Basically no animals.

Posting the mission is cool, your bot did awesome and deserves the brag. But if I'm going to see it three times, I felt the need to point out that we actually did put up a fight, and a pretty good one at that.

Most appreciated for the unsolicated recruitment thread, Psycout. I joined back in Nov 2003 and not sure if I seen the original layout of HMW. If I did, it wasn't all that long. Even though the Maximals and Preds are out numbered, we will continue with the fight. Live long the Beast Wars!!!!!

Which is what I'm saying. He was dancing around the battlefield and picking his shots. I'm so proud! :sad:

But are ya denying that the Maximals could use some help?

There were animal transformers in Gen 1 (The predacons, the cassettes for both sides, seacons and several others) and the Maximals/Predacons had vehicle forms on Cybertron. There's no animal life on cybertron to scan and take the form of. So, it makes sense that both sides would have access to vehicles and animals.

As has been pointed out, there are examples of animals for Autobots and Decepticons, both in G1 and the Unicron trilogy; and the Maximals and Predacons both had vehicular alts before traveling to prehistoric earth. Besides, players like having choice. Just because I chose to be Maximal doesn't mean I don't want some vehicle bots on my team. Matter of fact, I think the Maximals and Predacons need MORE vehicular alts, to make us more attractive to a wider variety of players. We definitely should have gotten the Star Wars alts, that would have gotten us quite a few more players.
