Christmas Maximus?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 March 2020 - 01:13 PM)

At least the ozone layer is healing. unless this is a 0.0000000001% thing it's sounds like good news.

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Pretty sure y'all were thinking of Fortress Maximus yesterday.

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:13 PM)

Ugh, Chinese. Typo-city.

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:11 PM)

Rodimus, you're just flat-out wrong. Trump eliminated the Pandemic Response Team. Trump was advised in January that this could be serious, and he didn't listen. Trump spent weeks downplaying COVID-19 by implying it was a hoax, and then that it was just a type of flu. He was late to close down travel from China, and by the time he closed down air-travel to the EU, that was also too late. He has refused to take responsibility for removing the pandemic response team, even though he basically bragged about it some months before. He's also prematurely talked up treatments using chlorquinine that have not been properly vetted as yet, and he keeps calling COVID-19 the "Chinense virus" because he can't help but be a jerk. Face facts: Trump is an incompetent bungler. Period. Full-stop.

@  repowers : (22 March 2020 - 03:49 PM)

That's totally super biased!

@  Nevermore : (22 March 2020 - 03:00 PM)

I'm not. I'm listening to his own contradictory statements.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 March 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Most people don't, but it's still making enough ratings to continue, apparently.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2020 - 11:45 AM)

I’m not finding modern episodes of The Simpson’s at all funny.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (22 March 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Trump HAS been working on this, stop listening to those idiot "news" outlets that just spin everything against him out of bias.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 March 2020 - 08:52 AM)

At the least, they could keep it off of Twitter.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 March 2020 - 08:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure the capuchin from "outbreak" would have done a better job than trump.

@  Nevermore : (22 March 2020 - 05:13 AM)

Isn't it sad that President Schwarzenegger would have been the better alternative in retrospect?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 March 2020 - 03:38 AM)

It was President Schwarzenegger, not Wolfcastle.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 March 2020 - 02:51 AM)

He put that in a speech in Springfields 'Do as we say' festival in 2005 too.

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)

Yeah, combining PVP with Pay To Win is the main reason I avoid "free" app games anymore.

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'm not a man of many words.  When I do have something to say, though, I'll try and make it worth your while!

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.
