Because that line always cracks me up.

Does she at least say "AAAAAAAH! AFTER TEN THOUSAND YEARS, I'M FREE! IT'S TIME TO CONQUER EARTH!"

Well, at least Rita's still over-the-top, then...

@  MEDdMI : (30 March 2017 - 03:01 PM)

My friend said it tried to be inspiring and serious, but Rita was too campy and some of the messages might not be good for kids.

Anyone been to the theater to see Power Rangers? How is it?

@  Evac : (30 March 2017 - 02:24 PM)

Meh, even if it was a real continuation it wouldn't be the same without Tony Jay.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 02:05 PM)

I don't want to see it be a trainwreck and crash and burn, because if it does that's probably it for ReBoot in any form for another decade or even longer. I'm just frustrated as ReBoot is one of the few things I like as much as Transformers.

@  Boomhauer : (30 March 2017 - 01:50 PM)

Fun fact: one of the actors for the main kids lied on his resume that he knew how to skate. He actualy doesn't. They had to choose between reshooting all his scenes with somebody else, getting a stunt or... just not having him skate at all.

@  Boomhauer : (30 March 2017 - 01:49 PM)

A close friend of mine has been working on that show for almost a year now. He's told me lots of things that filled me with excitement about how baffled the internet will be about it. It's gonna be a great trainwreck.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 12:37 PM)

Given all the advancements in computing since the end of the original series, how they've spread through every facet of our lives they could tell some great stories within the existing ReBoot universe... Instead they're going for Power Rangers meets Tron.

@  Evac : (30 March 2017 - 12:21 PM)

That's... That's not ReBoot. That's... That's a bad Tron rip-off.

@  Rycochet : (30 March 2017 - 12:18 PM)

Well, the ReBoot revival sounds positively dire.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 02:20 PM)

They were all in Tahiti that day, oh, and those days too, but they totally know someone who was there.

@  Broadside : (28 March 2017 - 01:37 PM)

Supposedly one of Mainframe's friends died during AHM, so presumably they were THERE, just, like, off-panel.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 12:12 PM)

Additionally, Skywatch was rushed; it took them 23 years to learn how to control Ravage and Laserbeak, and they didn't even have a year to try and get the Dynobots under control.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:58 AM)

Presumably dealing with other problems-The military was already routed to NYC before the blackout. And a counter terrorism unit is not something you have deal with an alien menace-it was Skywatch's purview, and even then, their problems started occurring only a year after Joes formation.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:57 AM)

I think the only way I would buy a Gi-Joe comic would be if they were paired up with the monsterbots.

@  Evac : (28 March 2017 - 11:55 AM)

Nah, the Monsterbots had that covered.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:43 AM)

Where were they when poop was hitting the fan with the Machination? You've got giant robot monsters battling in the open with an army of human controlled robot weapons... Maaaaybe that's the kind of thing they should have intervened in given how Skywatch failed.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 11:37 AM)

There was a major coordinated military presence outside New York during AHM. Where was the elite special task force?

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:24 AM)

Well there was also Soundwave disrupting all communications so no one could coordinate and also Starscream killed the President, and everyone else on Air Force One, who were probably some of the few who actually knew about their existence

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 11:21 AM)

If your country is being torn apart by aliens, you use every tool at your disposal and two years before AHM still puts them in existance around the time of the Machination who were very much the kind of problem they should have been dealing with.

@  Verity Carlo : (28 March 2017 - 11:10 AM)

IDW Joe was a top secret anti-terrorism unit made up of specialists. Not really "repelling an invasion force" material, plus they were formed two years before AHM

@  unluckiness : (28 March 2017 - 10:58 AM)

The Avengers were all Skrulls or something at the time

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 March 2017 - 10:45 AM)

It happened just like Spidey and SHIELD turned up in the original G1 comics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 10:35 AM)

I try to forget that Avengers thing ever happened. I mean, aside from a throwaway line in Spotlight: Ramjet, it never comes up again anyway.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 10:29 AM)

They would have been #1 on the Presidents speed dial to deal with the problems caused by Skywatch losing control of the Transformers in their care.

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 March 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Don't forget the Avengers. Megatron must have culled metahumans before AHM. Picture him personally tearing Spider-man in two.

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 March 2017 - 10:18 AM)

You'd think they would've intervened the time Megatron took over New York.

@  Rycochet : (28 March 2017 - 08:25 AM)

I really don't care for Gi-Joe being retconned into sharing the same universe as Transformers, There have been too many Joe free events in America for them to have existed all along.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (28 March 2017 - 07:53 AM)

And now he gets to be a member of hugging G.I. Joe.

@  unluckiness : (28 March 2017 - 06:46 AM)

I don't think anyone was ever supposed to like him

@  Broadside : (28 March 2017 - 06:36 AM)

To be fair, Costa at least had the self-awareness to turn Spike into a villain when he realised that nobody liked him.

@  Jalaguy : (28 March 2017 - 05:17 AM)

And the "lol idgaf" approach to making itself part of the existing universe is stupid. They could have pivoted to be more G1-cartoon-y without throwing so much worldbuilding out the window for no reason.

The game has gone live for both iOS and Android. However, DO NOT download directly through the App Store or Google Play if you pre-registered!!! Wait for the email to let you know the game is out and download it through there. If you download directly instead of through the email you will not be able to get your free character, and the developers are saying there's no way to correct for this.

It might not officially be live, but the notification emails have gone out and new players can access it and start playing. Seems live enough to me. I honestly don't believe the developers when they say they can't do anything for the players who pre-registered and downloaded the game before getting the email.

I stopped playing months ago. I really didn't find it at all appealing. I was keen to rebuild our Battle Tactics league, but the hoops you have to jump through to unlock that functionality in Earth Wars... no.

Game doesn't really capture my attention. Plus Battle Tactics kinda soured me on the play-to-win mechanic where are the popular characters are "locked" behind having to pay money to be in the competition. (or cheat)

For those who want to play....

If you experience the same issue I did, pre-registered but weren't able to get the free character after you downloaded the game, contact support at transformersearthwars dot com and they should be able to get the problem resolved. I now have Breakdown in my ranks. :)

I jumped the gun and installed before getting the email, so I missed out on the free Breakdown (for now).

 

That said, I played for a while and I'm just not sure I can get into this game. I don't always have a lot of time on a consistent basis anymore to really contribute in a multiplayer/PvP environment, and the fact that some random person can come in an wreck my base is super unappealing.

 

Maybe I'm missing something here...?

I've been playing a bit.  I installed last night, and I'm almost level 3 right now.  It's alright, slower paced than I like, but then i'm not really a fan of these types of games.

 

It keeps to build a scanner to "engage rival players", but I'm not ready for PVP at this point, so it's staying unbuilt

 

Not sure I like the battles.  I don't seem to be able to control where my team attacks, just if they use their special ability.  Getting tired of my flyers heading off in one direction to get slaughtered while leaving Ironhide to fend for himself.  Am I missing something in the controls?

The game's developer was streaming on Twitch and taking questions with Simon Furman, so that was pretty neat. (He said if he could add anyone to the game, it would be Rattrap)

I see the appeal but as a rule, I generally don't play the the kinds of games you can pick up in an app store. The robot models themselves have a decent bit of detail for that particular resolution, and the animations are smooth. So it's got that going for it.

Speaking of Furman, I did find a Furmanism in the game. I'm playing the Decepticon campaign, and at one point in the story mode Starscream claim the Autobots shall "Reap the Whirlwind." That actually managed to get a laugh outta me as I just really didn't expect to see that. I hadn't realize that the game was written by him till that point.

 

This could fun if the story mode is silly campy fun like that, it's pretty much a Transformers Clash of Clans.

 

I will admit that I'm disappointed that not everyone gets call out of their names. It just feels off to have "Megatron!" "Bludgeon!" "Starscream!" and then "Crush Them!" when deploying Tantrum.

As someone who does play a few pay 2 win mobile games, this game needs some rough edges smoothed down for it to hit that part of the brain that whispers to you "Sure, just a small purchase won't hurt..."

The biggest issue I see is pacing. The game moves in starts and stops that kills any sense of momentum or illusion of quick and steady progress.

One of my biggest annoyances so far, is that in the PvP area, they split things up based on defense. you have like 100, 300, and 900. Just starting this yesterday I'm not yet to the point of dealing with 300 def bases, but it feels like some of the bases I end up fighting should be in there. A team power of 275 should theoretically be able of handling most any base in that category, yet there are those where the defenses will kill my team before before they barely do any damage.

Been playing this a lot over the last couple of days.

 

Currently have Optimus Prime (** lvl14) Ironhide (* 15), Mirage (** 8), Stormclash (* 14), Ratchet (* 1), Jetfire (* 10), Sunstreaker (* 10), Powerglide (* 10)

 

By base is Level 4. Working on Maxing out Walls before moving to Level 5. Current player level is  9.

 

I know they wanted to get CoC Players to come over to this, but in it's current state I just don't see it happening... It's neat and all but so far really rough.

 

The Trophy system needs reworked. I'm sitting at a Power Level of 444 doing 300 levels and only getting 1 Trophy. The next jump level is Trophy level 900. That's doing me no good. Plus if I lose a battle that's like 18 trophies instantly lost. No way to easily recoup that loss.

 

The battles are way to simplistic. Power through to the Base Destroy it, instant win. I prefer the 50%, TH Destroyed, 100% Three star rule of CoC.

 

I do like the game, but it's got a lot of work needed to have it take any CoC Players away.
