Positron TF and auto exemplar
So I tried this Saturday night with a team, (Grae Knight, Red Queen and I were going to do it but couldn't get a team together and Grae had to leave), and I can tell you the auto exemplaring feature works perfectly. For those of you not in the know, if you have previously outleveled any of the TF or trials you can now do it and the game sever will automatically lower your level to the highest level acceptable of the TF or trial. So if you're level 38, and the Positron TF is for levels 14-16, you get lowered to 16.
What this means is, if you go link dead, you WON"T be kicked out of the TF since you're not losing a Exemplar. I'm level 50 with CL and it automatically made me level 16 for the TF.
Now on to the fun part. I get in a team, and after about three or four missions we lose our healer. She had connection problems. Two of our team members are RL friends of her and told us they didn't see her come back on and the she wouldn't just quit. Okay good enough, our team of six goes to five with no healer. Just gotta be careful.
About an hour after that another member drops, no notice, no word of I gotta go, just gone. So we THINK he had connection issues, but who knows he never came back. Down from five to four.
We literally get to about the seventh or eighth mission, five hours into it and our tank informs us he has to leave for work in an hour. He says this in the middle of the "Defeat Robot boss and his guards" mission, which is PACKED with Assembler and Tesla Princes that are conning orange and red to all of us. In an effort to keep things moving, I superspeed through, find the boss and the evidence and take it down. No go, apparently I had to clear the whole back room of robots, which contained, and I'm not lying here, another five orange con Assembler and Tesla Princes. (This mission was hard as hell, it had six Assembler Princes in the first hall when we entered). It was as this point that they decided to DISBAND the team since they didn't think we could finish it without the tank. This after a level 16 squishy elec/elec blast had just taken down an orange named boss by himself. Okay, whatever.
I decide, 'Screw you, I'm NOT having five hours wasted' and I decide to press on by myself. This was about 10:00, maybe 10:30. I finished at 1:00 AM. The good thing is, not only did it scale back the number of mobs in the missions, but they all conned blue, green, and white to me. The named bosses at the ends conned yellow, but other than that, I cakewalked through the rest of it. Not to mention, I had LONG since used up my supply of inspirations and had to call out for someone to bring me some. Thank you Azul Mask for offering to come out. Digitizer of JF came to my aid. I admittedly tossed the Rages and Lucks in favor of the Respites and CABs he gave me. Luckily one of the missions was clocks and Vahz and it loaded me down with Respites and CABS. *I think the Devs were watching and took pity on me*
I had also managed to rack up 280K debt on the previously mentioned clock mission that was insanely packed with princes. That is all gone. I didn't die anymore the rest of the night. But I did it, finished that bad boy all by my lonesome. A level 16 squishy blaster.
So I'm thinking of changing my title to the "Incredibly Stubborn Chain Lightning"
She's not the nice person you all think she is. She's really a self-serving, attention whore.
