Christmas Maximus?

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.

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

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@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.

@  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)

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

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)

Just downloaded and installed it. Haven't played much but seems promising so far. The gameplay is surprisingly complex and the artwork on the cards is fantastic. Looks like I've found something to do for a while. icon-hotrod.gif

Got it, and loving it.

I've never played this type of game before, so I'm still getting the hang of it, but it's a LOT of fun.

The graphics are great. I love the look of the activating space bridge cutscene. The purple tiled wormhole to flash of white looks amazing.

I even paid for some premium space bridges, and did pretty well out of it, including Megatron, Soundwave, and Prowl. Just need alt-modes for them now.

Is their much of a difference between leaders, and can I still get the leaders I didn't choose? I went with Wheeljack, but it was such a difficult decision.

All the leaders can be obtained through missions anyway, so I wouldn't worry too much. And you have to trans-scan your opening leader before leveling them, so that card won't actually be very good. You'll probably replace it in a few weeks, especially if you're able to get an event card.

Rumours are that there's a fembot event shortly.

The only thing for me is that recently a lot of the event cards tend to be characters who already exist with different stats and artwork. There's plenty of Transformers who don't have cards, lets have new characters for the event cards eh?

They appear to be adding new ones - the Space Bridge scene has been there for a while, but they only recently added the weapons bridge cutscene with Shockwave and Ironhide forging new weapons, which is *really* nice.

I quite like it so far.

The art on the cards is the biggest draw but the game itself is nice though simple too. Wish there was a little more gameplay to the gameplay but as a time killer on my phone I'm good with it so far.

Question. How do Weapon cards work? Do I equip them somehow and am missing it? You don't see them in the fights, what do they do/effect? I feel like I'm missing the point of them.

I think the Weapon Cards just automagically work. I'm trying to figure out if upgrading them really makes a difference, as their level increase curve is crazy high.

Turns out you DO equip Weapons!

You go to your team page where you assign squad members. Select a Bot, then select Edit, and you can equip whatever weapon you want on that robot.

The "recommended" squads do seem to auto-equip weapons, but whether they just put the strongest weapon on the strongest card or actually pay attention to the character "classes" or not I dunno. The whole combat system is pretty opaque.

I'm pretty sure I've run into some moneybags players already. When you're L8 and EVERY card has been trans-scanned, while I'm L15 and have only found enough complete pairs to put three or four in my army...yeah.

The ally system is pretty crap, though. It doesn't seem to have a search function, it just throws up a dozen or so random people, probably the last dozen to click a cow. Er, card.

You used to be able to search for players I think, but not find random new allies. Now it's the other way around.

I imagine they'll get it right eventually.

I'm 90% sure that the recommend button does pay attention to class, but doesn't pay attention to faction. I don't *think* that faction bonuses apply outside of events though.

Wallet Warriors are just...weird. The actual hundreds-to-even-thousands some blow on electronic cards--they're pixels, boys and girls, if they were something you could put in nine-pocket pages or sandwich between a couple of screwdown panels made by UltraPRO, I'd back you up in furious fashion--extended contemplation of those dollars makes me shudder somethin' awful. Mostly because I may have to wage an internal war to keep myself from trying that...

The art duties, I recall, come from in-house and input of some stripe by Guido Guidi and Dan Khanna...there was an interview article on Seibertron yesterday which got into it some (can't reread it at work).

Enjoying it still. Art IS awesome. I would 100% spend money on a physical deck just for the art.

Small critiques:

1) It'd be nice if the background art matched the Mission better sometimes. Having the mission "Explore the Underground Lava Caves" take place in a lush green above ground forest kinda kills the illusion a little.

2) Having a few different enemies launch missiles at you instead of just Ramjet and Swoop eternally would be nice and not hard as it's just moving static art.

Saw someone on TFW say you shouldn't Transcan till your card was completely leveled up, but I have no idea how true that actually is.


-ZacWilliam, they also said not to bother spending any resources on L1 cards because they aren't worth it, but again I have no idea how true it is.

I just read the 'Help' section on the game.

It says there not to transcan until both component cards are maxed out: higher they are before combining, the better the bonus and stats.

That's completely counterintuitive. When you get the second part in a Mission it prompts you by saying that you now have both and hey, would you like to transcan them? It should mention the other bit right there, instead of making you think you're just supposed to scan them then and there.
