Looks like it's live now!

I don't understand what the hell I'm supposed to be doing.

So it's a sort of turn-based fighting game... choose a faction, choose a region, look for opposing faction in the region. If there aren't any, find another region. If you find an opponent who's not otherwise engaged, click on them, and you might be lucky enough to get to a loading screen. Eventually, the loading screen might end, and you might get to fight. During the fight, you may get to choose a couple of attacks, or it may just go right back to the region screen.

Either way, I've been trying for about 15 minutes, and have only successfully started one battle, which I guess ended in a forfeit, because it just faded away and went back to the region selector.

*edit* Wow, successfully battled. There are three attacks, I clicked each one more or less at random, absorbed attacks from my opponent, and eventually got the message that he was dead. No transforming, not even a death animation... the only animation is when launching an attack. Pretty dull.

On the bright side, this image makes a great desktop background.

Don't fight it. It's trying to save you from itself.

I've gotten in now, and figured it out pretty well.

However, I logged out, and when I tried to get back in, it said my email wasn't registered. ><

Obviosly, still many bugs to work out.

There really, really, REALLY needs to be a "time-out" function. People can just sit there and do nothing and rack up forfeit victories. Which is really douchey.

Also... "Focus" is way too overpowered a move, more than doubling your attack damage for the next however-many rounds, no matter what. Every OTHER effect, like stun or confuse, has a chance to not work, and even if it takes effect, the enemy might not actually be stunned or confused. You have to HOPE, basically, that a Focused character hits themself.

Also, there are not enough Decepticons. Despite this, they are winning. The bastards.

Every single robot name I input is greeted with an "already taken." That's ridiculous. I'm trying things that arent even words. WTF?

how many moves does ones bot or con get? I get a drop down list of just 3, but everyone I'v faced has had 4 - 5 moves. Focus for one plus the normal 3. Aswell as grenades.

It does that off and on. Simply go back to the login page, enter your adress and password, and it should give you the name you put in first, and it should work Ok from there.

I've only ever seen three. Unless there's some glitch somewhere I missed.

Aha!

This would have been helpful to, you know, actually link somewhere in-game. Apparently you get a new attack after your 20th, 60th, and 120th wins.


Also, the Autobot and Decepticon models are slightly different. The most obvious difference is the heads: 'Cons have the cyclops look we all know and either love or hate, and 'Bots have a faceplate that's probably intended to evoke Prime. Also, compare the two Longarms' stomach-cannons.
