And those wins happened later in the series after the Autobots had already fought these guys before and had gotten stronger since. But every time they fought a Cybertron-born Decepticon the first time, the Autobots could barely stand up to them.

We see a whole lot of Decepticons on New Kaon during Megatron's funeral (when he was presumed dead in season 1). Not to mention the might that is Team Chaar who mopped the floor with Team Athenia. Though the Autobots may outnumber them, the Animated Decepticons were anything but incapable.

Which the Earth-bound ones had to spend an entire season building themselves, since the Cybertron-based ones were pretty much useless to them for the most part, what with them being on Earth instead of Cybertron and all.

Which didn't get any real good use for the Earht Autobots until the season 3 finale.

Who was offline for most of seasons 1-2, and lost to Megatron for most of season 3.

The episode itself sure seems to think so, since it spent a good majority of itself focusing on Arcee trying to escape the Vehicons, while only spending a mere five minutes on Cliffjumper's death. They killed off Cliffjumper before we even got a chance to care about him.
TurboMMaster wrote:Autobots lost this episode at the beggining, mostly because they failed in protect one of them, anything what happened later in this episode simply a effect of this disaster.
In that case, one might as well just shut off the episode right after Cliff dies, since , according to you, the rest of the whole episode is entirely pointless.

And also, most of the time Autobots victories are simply return to status quo, without makin their situation any better. Decepticons can't won too ofen, mostly because it they did, something is gona change almost for sure.
And that's the fault of the writers, not the characters themselves.
Well, I guess you could blame the Decepticons for their army consisting almost entirely of fragile Stormtroopers that couldn't win a battle to save their lives after "Darkness Rising".

Cliffjumper's death wasn't the main "problem" of the episode. It happened in the first two to five minutes, the Autobots cry, and that was it.
The rest of the episode was Starscream wanting to capture and kill Arcee as well, so he sent out two twin Vehicons to grab her. Arcee got back up and sent the Vehicons running. The Autobots won...but ended up with three humans involved. This would transition into the next episode.
Yes, thank you.
