Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

Tyrest? He was chief justice, even :p

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2017 - 03:24 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (19 February 2017 - 12:45 AM)

One of the Walmarts near me has some pegs full of Wave 1 TR deluxes.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 09:35 PM)

Yeah, never seen a Titans Return Hot Rod

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Or Hot Rod. D=

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Wow, seriously? I don't think I've even seen him here. =(

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 07:50 PM)

Yeah Mindwipe shelfwarmed like crazy in Vancouver.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 February 2017 - 07:36 PM)

My Walmart still has a Rattrap floating around. My frustration is I've seen Hot Rod and Doublecross, but still haven't seen a Highbrow

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 07:02 PM)

I still haven't seen any Wave 3 Deluxes aside from the Triggerhappy I got off eBay.

@  Pennpenn : (18 February 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Fairly sure the Target near my work still has a CW Wheeljack hanging around the Wave 3 TR deluxes. Just wish we'd gotten Wave 2 deluxes...

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 06:53 PM)

CW deluxes from the later waves clogged the shelves real bad.

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 06:52 PM)

Correction: TR deluxes don't shelfwarm.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 06:47 PM)

Generations deluxes don't shelfwarm.

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 06:30 PM)

Hm, interesting. Some of the pegs seem to have the correct names when they've been shelfwarming for a while. So like Mindwipe would be on a peg labelled MINDWIPE next to WOLFWIRE, etc.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2017 - 06:30 PM)

It would make less sense to track individual figures when they're ordered by the assortment anyway.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 03:02 PM)

Nope. walmart tends to scan the first UPC of the assortment, then use it for the entire assortment. Actually tracking data makes to much sense.

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 02:37 PM)

So hey I bought Triggerhappy from Walmart a few days ago and just notice the receipt said TRIGGERHAPPY on it. Not the assortment name or whatever. Are they using this info to better track character sales or something?

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I think there was a premonition panel in the Devil's Due TF vs JOEs

@  Bass X0 : (18 February 2017 - 05:28 AM)

When an app asks me to give a review or a rating, I decline, but I always look at other people's reviews before I get an app.

@  Sockie : (17 February 2017 - 10:07 PM)

TF vs G.I. Joe counts more than anything else.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

Does that even count?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

OH, that one.

@  Pennpenn : (17 February 2017 - 08:39 PM)

The most recent one, I think? I don't think Fort Max or Trypticon even appear in the earlier ones.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:37 PM)

Which one was that?

@  unitremover : (17 February 2017 - 07:16 PM)

They did in the Scioli TF vs GI Joe

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2017 - 05:37 PM)

Have Fortress Maximus and Trypticon ever fought each other before Titans Return?

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.
