cause i want to make one in movievese design schemes. :CON:


Well, Bumblebee in TFP uses his movie designs, and Optimus uses something similar to his movie design, so I don't see why not.

:CON:


Because it's Transformers Universe, not Transformers Multiverse.

ya.. your right :sad:

Assuming certain character names aren't locked out (Which I know for a fact some MMOs won't let you use certain names) then you'll have to get there fast because not everyone reading this news heard your call for dibs, and not everyone who did hear it is noble enough to let you take the name.

Not like I'm jotting down a list of everyone who calls dibs on a name just so I can swoop in and take it first.

Too late, already confirmed to be based on Prime.

Since SWTOR, TSW and Rift will be occupying my MMO time, this game looks like it'll be pretty questionable and don't even want to bother trying it out.

I'm very excited about this game and the OC creator. I saw a video of it during botcon and it looks really in depth so you really can make an original character :) I also love the fact that the art team is doing all these characters in prime style. I can't wait to see more of them. Especially cause it kinda expands the Prime universe imo. I know when I say this, it probably won't ever happen, but with these designs I hope maybe Hasbro might make toys of some of them. I really like the upcoming prime toys and it would be so cool to get charcaters who weren't in the show (that Prowl kicks ass :KREMZEEK: ). I mean it happened with drift and the comics and a little for WFC. I can dream :x

Of course there will be toys of characters who weren't in the show. That's how it's been since G1.

hey, anyone remember back a few years when WOW let you send in your character design and they would send you back a figure? Could you just imagine if hasbro did this? I know they wont, but still. not only that, but im sure any bot you use the mold off of like bee or screamer, you could customise into your mmo character. so many possibilities!

Yes, but this isn't a toyline, it's a game. And I'm going to use all of the faulty roundabout logic at my disposal to justify that.

Actually, no, no gaps were bridged. The Universe fiction that does exist is mostly just G1 and Beast Era. And while the most recent toyline does reuse toys from numerous other toylines, translating all of that to fiction is an entirely different ballgame. Well, translating it to fiction well is an entirely different ballgame.

I wonder if we still can play as humans... that'd be great and add a huge amount of variety in gameplay experience.

Wow, Really? You guys just can't be happy to say that there is a Transformers MMO where you have near full character creation?

I mean, I get it. Everyone has their favorite generation or alt mode, but how are they supposed to make a game that caters to everyone at launch?

Another thing is, TFP is the franchise right now. Of course it's going to be based off of that. Its good marketing.

I'm going to play. Why? Because if this game gets enough support, they might, MIGHT, add some nods to other generations down the line in a patch or update. Not to mention a high player base tells Has/Tak that moving on to a Disc based game could be profitible in the long term.

Even if none of those things come to be, I'll still be happy. Why? Its a TF MMO for Allspark's sake.

THANK YOU! And who cares if it's browser based? Hell, I was happy with WFC Character creator, let alone this!
Besides, you got a favorite bot? Make'em TF PRIME STYLE!
Armada prime? Tweak the prime mold till you feel right, I mean, come on now!
YOU GET TO PLAY AS BASICALLY ANYONE! BE HAPPY!
All a game like this one can do is expand.
If you want to see how good browser based games can be, go to WWW.Maidmarion.com. though Marian games can use some polish, they have charm, and hard work put into them. lets hope the TF MMO Is as good. after all, isn't prates browser based? I have it downloaded, and its GOOD!

Browser based MMOs can be lame, but it depends on the plug-in player. Battlestar Galactica Online uses the Unity player, and it works VERY WELL.

High hopes for TFMMO!
