I swear, I'm in line to use a coupon, there is something wrong with said coupon, and suddenly I'm holding up a line of 3 or 4 people

Shockwave did it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 May 2020 - 12:21 AM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

@  Roddie Luver : (27 May 2020 - 09:37 PM)

I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

IIRC, you play Heroes of the Storm, so her new Teleporter is pretty similar to Medivh's Portals.  You place an exit in a similar manner to Reaper's Shadow Step/Mei's Ice Wall (for reference, Reaper's max Shadow Step range is 35 meters, Sym's max range is currently 25, internally), and then entrance is placed at your feet.  Either gate is destructible.  Allied players can press a button while next to a gate to move to the opposite one, with a slight cooldown between warps.  Teleporters no longer have a usage limit, they just expire eventually.  It's no longer an ultimate, just her new "E", replacing her current Photon Barrier.

 

Likely best used for getting other immobile characters up to high grounds, and possibly to set up some sneaky flanks depending on the sight lines.

 

The devs had also said that they had it so you could launch D.Va nukes and stuff through the Teleporters, although that was before they added the button input to confirm a warp (at that stage of development, the new Teleporter was one way only, so on-contact was fine.  But now you can hop back and forth), so I'm not sure if that's still a thing.

 

While we're at it, the laundry list of other planned changes are as follows:

 

- shifted from Support to Defense, so DPS upgraded accordingly:  Photon Projector upgraded from 30>75>120 DPS to 65>130>195, but now takes 4 seconds to fully charge, up from 2.  Range increased (IIRC, similar range to Zarya and Moira now), but now fires a straight beam with no lock-on.  Leeches energy from Barriers, restoring ammunition (so theoretically she's a Barrier breaker now, burning through the shields and then frying the tank behind with a max-damage laser).

- charged Photon Projector now pretty much a Pharah rocket: faster, but explodes on impact now.  130 dmg at full charge.

- turret count reduced from 6 to 3, but individual turrets have been made more powerful to compensate.  30HP now, up from 1 (D.Va and Reaper can't accidentally knock them over from across the map anymore).  Now activated as a projectile, firing at a similar speed to a Pharah rocket until they impact a viable surface, at which point they become active.  Destructible in mid-air.
- new ultimate: an infinitely wide/high Barrier generator with 5000HP.  Effectively cuts off a zone from incoming fire.  Lasts until destroyed.

 

That's all we've heard about her until this point.  She should be going up on PTR very soon.

Sym patch on PTR now (along with a bunch of other things).

 

Revisions to above, based on the current notes:

 

- Dmg tiers are 60/120/180, not 65/130/195 as previously stated.  Range is 10 meters, not the 15 of Zarya and Moira.

- Charged shot is 120 dmg - 60 dmg contact, 60 dmg explosive

- Teleporter cooldown is 12 seconds, and has a maximum 10 second uptime.  Activation key is "F" (or wherever your "acknowledged" voice command is bound).

- Photon Barrier ultimate has 15 second duration.  Looks awesome.

 

Also, the Defense role has been completely removed for everyone.  Attack and Defense characters are now just "Damage".  Which I suppose mostly works, and stops noobs from freaking out when you pick Widow/Hanzo/Junk on attack, or McCree/Tracer on defense, etc. Kinda leaves Mei in a weird spot, though, since her role is heavily specialized "point lockdown" aka "defense", and most definitely not DPS.

Cool to see the new Symmetra in action. Using the teleporter to direct turret beams is definitely thinking with portals.

Hope it's not too long before they roll her out across the board.

Before she goes live they need to fix her left click.

 

The way it's supposed to work is to deal damage at set intervals.  But if you rapidly click, you get a damage tick for each click instead (which can be cheesed with an autofire script, or just setting an alternate fire input to mousewheel down, if you have a "frictionless" wheel), which can be much faster than the intended damage rate.  Lots of videos of full-health D.Va Meka going down in about one second, etc.

Well, the new Symmetra has hit consoles. I certainly found the fireable, more robust turrets to be more effective than her originals. Only three is a bit sad but it's a fair tradeoff. 

 

I struggled to use her ultimate in a way that ever felt particularly useful, but I guess as long as you don't place it somewhere super dumb, it's still soaking damage and helping out. 

 

Can she not travel through the teleporter herself? That's weird. (Oh, the internet seems to tell me she can, but it wasn't working for me last night.)

If you're on console, you might need to check your keybinds.  It's supposed to be L3 (the thumbstick button) by default to teleport.

Yeah, I recalled after posting that there was a button press required, and just hadn't noticed the prompts. Then started seeing keybind errors and was like... huh? I'm on a PS4, why the hell should I need to be binding keys?!

Sombra's invisibility and translocator lasting indefinitely are pretty huge changes. Being able to destroy an enemy's translocator is great though. Many a time I've come across one and had to be content with dropping a steel trap on it.
