hmm, but doesn't burn have the power to change people's xp...I think I read a thread somewhere with I believe Zordon getting new xp amounts. So someoone could get a new account create bots and burn gives them equivalent xp amounts...then just to make sure, reset the former teams xp all to 0. (or preferably delete the account).

Then if he can also change energon amounts you'd be in good shape. Have to reinstall all the armor, so if this can't be done, it'd be vital to have autobots who are willing to donate millions of energon.

That would require someone setting up a second account, which is a no-no.

Secondly, it would require a bit of work to benefit a handful of people.

Unfortunately my Administrator privileges extend to the forums only, HMW abilities are limited to Weapons (maybe), changing characters, and restocking armor.

With permission from the big man himself though, that idea has potential, assuming we get volunteers. After all, if anyone can be trusted not to abuse this it's the forum admin as facilitator.

I don't know how difficult it would be, but if ryan approved the method it doesn't seem like it would be too hard. That being said, it's hard to say if it is really worth it, and if you could get the right amount of people to move to balance the game. And of course with so few players and those playing changing all the time, keeping a balance seems near impossible. I just thought I'd throw an idea out there to see what is possible. Sounds like not much!!

It's doable, whether it's worth it though ...

Like you said, maintaining the balance will be the hard part. People may be playing heavily now, but six weeks from now they might not be able to.

Seems like we just need to reprogram the game so every mission becomes a death match...once one side is eliminated the other side turns on itself until there is only 1 transformer standing!!

Yes, I know isn't really possible given our programming situation. :P
