Meanwhile...


Sandstrom sat perched on the left foot of the ASN-DD, while a crew of overpriced techs ran diagnostics up in the cockpit trying to sync the Autocannon with the Darkdeath's new improved optics. On his lap, his tablet was opened to the "HMWT" (Have Mech Will Travel inc) news site, the digital rag was filled with ads selling gear that only a moron would mount on his rig, pills for 'male enhancement', and poorly sourced new stories about various small system battles and gossip of the mercenary world...

The only reason Dale, or really anyone with half a brain read it was for the section that posted new and still open Bounties, and today the section was running glacially slow because of all the traffic on it drawn by one offering:

https://mwomercs.com...reamer-dev-hunt

Sandstrom groaned as he rubbed his eyes, "bloody hell!" he muttered. 82 fully open-season, no-contract bounties was going to cause a lot of chaos across the Inner Sphere, every rookie and seasoned Mechjock was going to be gunning for bounties first and following orders second... Madness, Blake's Bucks level madness!

Then again, thought Dale, who better to take the lion's share of those bounties in than him and the Darkdeath?

Closing the tablet down, he stood up and yelled "Wrap it up you lousy nerdherding groundpounders!" at the tech team high above him, "I'm lifting off in 45 minutes, with or without you in the cockpit"

Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is an easy or very difficult idea to implement (or a stupid one after all) for future events.

Why not kill the dev or protect the dev (and streamer)?

If the dev / streamer is on the evil red team, kill it.
If he/she is on the good guy team aka blue team, help him not get killed.

Something like a counter might be useful here. Maybe like: 10 games played in which a dev / streamer was NOT killed while he/she was on your side correspond to a dev / streamer kill.

As an idea to promote the team's play. Just as a quick idea to maybe think about it.

Thanks

I would like to see a team of steamers and devs form a 12 man to go up against the other fp 12 mans, friday and saturday night is faction night and that would be great entertainment. I have been disappointed by the lack of streamers and devs in faction the last few events.

There are several streamers that are in T4 or around that or even run Alts that are especially for such occasions. Keep an eye out and good luck on the Hunt!

"Month of "kill dev" action - get 100 "kill dev" achivements to earn new "mech of the month" ! ;)
P.S. those "dev hunt" events are best events ever in MWO - it shows us devs are playing the game too!

Just a thought..

In addition to the cockpit item for killing a dev or streamer... this may be hard to make a cockpit item that is easy to read on maybe a T-shirt "I got killed by a Dev and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt." Also a Streamer version.

Thank you for another event!

Good Hunting everyone!

So many targets, and they're all HUMAN too, which means they all have real lives to deal with... Too little time given to try, when one already knows that all of the Streamers/Developers can not (and therefore will not, as they have to cycle on and off) all be online at the same time... Plus there is the constant issue of the MatchMaker and its' randomness to deal with, which causes some people to simply never see any Streamers/Developers at all... This crazy type of idea for an Event is already beyond overdue on having an extension to a minimum of a 7 Day Run Time so that people might have a fair chance at getting a single opportunity! The previous versions of this kind of Event should already have been a clean & clear lesson!!! :angry:
