Wow man, so much wrong at once...
I own all the game I speak of, except ROTF coz its a failure.
There are laser weapons in WFC and DOTM. Transformers don't always use just lasers either. The fact that somthing like what the weapon looks like and sounds like matters more to you than the balance of its phyics in the game shows your lack of scope on what really matters. The same goes for issues like Soundwave talking too much. The same goes for not understanding that host migration means when someone who is hosting LEAVES, a NEW HOST IS ASSIGNED AND THE GAME KEEPS GOING... What are these bogus claims of game hinderances? They don't matter at all. I get headshots in every game coz I am trying for them. You probably give up coz you feel they don't work. A headshot on a Scout (and possibly a jet) is instant kill. On anything bigger, it takes atleast one prior headshot before it will finish them off. A button just for auto aim? you mean the 'aim down the sight' button? if thats what you call auto-aim, you gota be like 12 or somthing. Game reviewers play a game through and they do spend time playing the multiplayer. I don't know what magical assumptions your going to make to reply to this, but what I'm saying is fact, unlike your presumptions.



If you had grown up watching the G1 cartoon you would know lasers are an integral part of that universe. You can't have "G1" TF's without. WFC has what two energy weapons? which don't even come close to replacating lasers. Even ROTF game was nearly all lasers. It looks a lot cooler and legit then weak bullet animations.

Your definition of host migration is 6 of one half a dozen the other. The point being that in DOTM ( and WFC if I remember correctly ) when the host quits it doesn't reassign
hosting duties the game ends, something you would know if actually played any of these games.

If you were even remotely good at DOTM you would know the "look down the sight button" gives many weapons a strong homing quality, to the point that a car will drive past and my guy will pan and follow him right past my feet.

I good example about how little faith you can take in game reviewer is the review at the top of this thread. It was the 4th review of DOTM I have read and the first one to mention the rampant crashing. Its not like its an isolated case. All my friends crash just as much as me. I see them go offline, then come back on, then re enter the same game and confirm it on their mics.

Look, I'm willing to grant you that DOTM is glitchy, but WFC is MUCH less glitchy and ultimately superior to both. DOTM still has the better gameplay than ROTF, but it suffers from more glitchiness. Its a trade off some people will make since it is fun most of the time, rather than none of the time.
But you have this attitude that you seem to place yourself above other players, not to mention this claim of being number 1 or 2 or 3 or whatever on the leaderboards in DOTM. I find that hard to believe since it goes by number of kills and not K/D ratio, so unless your an extreme nerd who plays ALL the time, you will constantly lose that position to the people behind you who suddenly start playing during your down time (of course, this could be true for ROTF since i'm sure not many people play it).


You might find a tiny game that runs like crap, is essentually a port of one already in existance, with simplistic game play aimed at children acceptable but I do not.

My DOTM PSN name is Spark_Stalker. Feel free to message me and I will confirm it.

So I havn't played for like a week and I just checked up on my ranks. I've slipped to 4th on overall player kills but I'm still 1st on DM with 10,764 kills. Read it and weep. Took a bit of nerding and when I was going hard I was getting 1000 kills a day. Stretched my lead over second place to around 2500 kills, havn't played since. Because the game is already dieing the guy in second is having to grind and still hasn't caught up.

You don't get to first on any leaderboard by being wrong.

Unlike yourself I own all the games we are talking about and I would be inclined to believe me over you being that I'm ranked 3rd in ROTF, 4th in WFC DM ( even though havn't played for months ) and 1st in DOTM DM. What are your credentials? Nobody player with unknown ranking? Come on..



:lol: :lol: :lol: is anyone else reading this?
You are too funny.
I grew up watching G1.
Every single weapon on WFC is named off as laser weapons.
For guns that are especially "lasers":
Ion displacer
Nucleon Shock cannon
Energon Repair Ray
Fusion Cannon
Plasma Cannon
Tank mode gun
On top of that you have rockets, and locking on abilities, and grenade launchers.
The rest are all laser weapons too, but feature magazines of rounds, or rockets. The variation here isn't to be G1 only (not to mention that if you read G1 commics, or G2 comics, you'd see many different guns that use magazines and fire like bullets), but to add to a varied style of gameplay. G1 isn't the only Transformers universe to draw from either, with how much the lore has grown, it would be ****** to discard the game if it doesn't embody ONLY the G1 cartoon, along with all its silliness.

I never said DOTM or WFC had host migration. They don't. I said that host migration is a good thing, you seemed to think it wasn't. With the number of games I have played where the host quit, I have played 50x more where I decided to quit after multiple rounds.

Looking down your sight doesn't auto aim as much as you seem to want to believe. It fine tunes your aim coz thats what a sight is for; fine aim. I have never had my reticle move for me in DOTM, or in WFC by an enemy going by. Even if it did happen, that would make the game more difficult, as it does in COD since it takes away from user control.

The game crashing seems to be a problem for your ps3. My xbox doesn't crash from DOTM. WFC crashed a few times on PC, but on PC, its a HUGE world of technical issues that can cause a ton of good games to occasionaly crash.

I'm very happy your so high on the leaderboards, take a screenshot to show your grandchildren.
For the record I'm 150 on DOTM in team deathmatch and 220 all round. Guess what, it means NOTHING. Only that I spend that much more time. There could be a guy who could snap you in half, but has only played a bit and is way down the leaderboards. Get real, buddy. You don't like DOTM. Great. Think ROTF is better, have fun with that.

Wow your really grasping at straws, the nucleon shock cannon? The one you have to kill seven people to earn?
Maybe its my fault, as the firepower animations are so weak I thought I was looking at bullets laced with tracer fire.

Um yes it does. I didn't get 10,000 kills by accident. I routinely dispatch scouts in stealth mode using the "auto aim", "focus" whatever you want to call it as well as all inbetween. If you havn't encountered that yet then you can just chalk it up as another thing thats gone over your head.

I think it is a problem for PS3's in general. Why do you keep trying to play console games on PC? I think thats half the reason why you didn't enjoy ROTF.

I didn't come here to gloat about my rank, I only mentioned it so people might trust what I'm saying.

You don't like DOTM. Great. Think ROTF is better, have fun with that.


Thanks very much will do. Good luck paying for online to play a half assed game.

If you rank up, you just have to wait around as the tank to get the canon from the ammo beacon. STILL besides the point.

I play COD blackops on PC which is merciless at aiming. Such a tiny amount of auto-aim doesn't get noticed by me as I don't ever rely on it in any way, since i've already picked/picked off my target. The only way they might have employed auto-aim is when your extremely upclose to an enemy, and shots are more likely to miss (due to look acceleration) as the enemy runs circles around you.

WFC is much better on PC. Frame rate is unlocked, better graphics as my computer is ripping, and the gamer community is less populated by "brats". I would be playing DOTM on PC if it released. I played ROTF on xbox, I doubt the PC version would be any better.

Thanks very much will do. Good luck paying for online to play a half assed game.

Have fun playing after the long break from PSN being hacked.

Hey you guys, your conversation is over. Further posts from the two of your will be removed.

You are killing everyone's inclination to even bother posting here.

This is done.
