In fact, it seems that all of the Prime-original characters (Ratchet, Arcee, etc.) had some modifications made to their designs.


It's probably so that they can actually get away with calling it "Universe" instead of calling it the "TF:Prime" video game. Honestly, I'm glad they've done this. If this were a game with nothing but straight up Prime designs, I wouldn't touch it. This is just enough different that it has me intrigued and very much excited about the designs of these characters. I'm hoping we see some of these in the Generations line by the start of 2015.

I gave serious thought to modding one of my Scout class Landmine/Dune Runner/Sandstorm figures to make a Catapult but they just aren't similar enough to turn out decent looking and I like those figures too much to sacrifice one of them for the attempt. fingers crossed that Hasbro, money grubbers that they are, will be pumping out figures for this game soon and I won't have to worry about making my own. Some of the trucks they have in the game trailer would make kick-ass figures. better than a lot of the stuff they are giving us now out of any of their lines and better than anything I've seen from the upcoming movie line by an infinite order of magnitude.

You know these founder packs don't actually give you advantages all it does is give you sweet stuff to use

besides as of now the exclusive Characters and Figurine you will be able to get the rest of these items through gameplay

in the end you win with tactics and wit and not with items.

You can get the items in the pack (excluding the figurine) for free if you spend time and effort in the game.

Dont defend it unless you've played it. You can get them in game sure, but just how hard are they going to make you work? Game industries are capitalising on this more and more each year. GTAV online or the recent Elder Scrolls online are good examples. You can put 60+ HOURS into a game like GTAV for that 1 car you want. OR you can make a microtransaction of $30+ For $1mil in game, all while Rockstar cuts your job earnings even thinner. Yeah, they actually do that. "free to play" games have been taking the fee to pay, pay to win, and pay for convenience thing through the roof, and Jagex is not exempt.

I doubt 1 game will make them change their tune.

Never said you couldn't. I said "don't defend it unless you've played it" Wich in hindsight was bad wording. What I meant by it was, "I wouldn't defend it unless i'd played it", It was caution, snide caution. Iv'e been up the creek with thes scams call games, GTAV being a pretty big contribution, wich no-one seems to talk about.

The whole free to play thing is what has kept me from even trying this game out yet. It ends up being a shitty game where you get killed by everyone else who decided to spend their money to equip stronger weapons and whatever else right off the bat, making you level and earn stuff through gameplay at an insanely slow rate. These games can go to hell. Slap a ridiculous price like $70 and I would still be more inclined to get/play this game than if it was based on this stupid "free-to-play" model.

All I want are action figures from the character designs. That is all.

i swear these companies are losing their goddamn minds, Ive seen some pretty out there prices but these are some of the worse. $45 is bad enough but $500 is insane. Worst part is its for a bunch of down load crap that does nothing & a figure that we have no clue what it actually is, f2p games are suppose to make their money through cheap transactions or "micro transactions" after launch not large sums prior. If your so desperate for money just make it a full fledged game & charge $60 not try & con people into paying for a free game. For $500 you could get a brand new PS4 and a couple of games or around 30 brand new deluxe figures. At least its not a pay to win game, well at least not yet anyway.

There are no weapons in the game

all of the guns are unique to characters and they are balanced

there are no advantages with buying the Founders pack none you just get cool stuff you can earn by playing you moron.


and Jagex said in a video they were made for the game so no toys for undeserving brats like you.

There is a picture of the damn figure in the news post.


Founders Packs are not something exclusive to Transformers Universe. They are limited time offers for those eager to experience more of what a game has to offer and to gain some special content to show that they were there at the beginning.

The Transformers Universe Founders Pack offers a collection of content at a lower cost than all the items would be together, as well as offering early access to some exclusive warriors and some special skins that are only available with the Founders pack. All this content will be helpful but is not pay to win, nor are they essential purchases if you want to have a fun time in Transformers Universe. They are however good value for the content included and feature some nifty exclusive content.

Transformers Universe is NOT pay to win and the Cybernite is only one of the packages on offer. New warriors in Transformers Universe offer new tactics and ways of playing but none are 'more powerful' than the others. The game is built around users teaming up and using tactics and strategy to win the match. A player who only has access to the initial characters will be able to take on a player who has unlocked everyone without being at a disadvantage. Case in point, I've been playing a few sessions of the Beta as a character other players hadn't had a chance to unlock yet and I still died a painful, humiliating defeat.

Items are there to help in a pinch but they won't ensure you dominate the battle field on your own. Anything that requires relics to purchase can be gained by everyone, whether they have bought a pack of relics or played long enough to earn them in game.

Your success in game is defined by your skill and ability to work with others, not how long you've been playing or how big your wallet is. Purchasing relics offer convenience, not success.

There already are figures based on their character designs.

Them saying they aren't planning any toys for the game is as baseless as TF: Prime claiming no figures would be made. They are already starting to break their own promise by releasing a figurine.

As for the game, I didn't know that the DLC didn't offer any advantages to gameplay, but the fact remains that its business model would have to be micro transactions if it wants to make any money (perhaps alongside sponsorships), and that makes for a crappy game that isn't really free.

Thanks for calling me names though. Now everyone here knows how immature mirageandjazz1197 really is. :lol:

A set with a non-transformable figurine for twice the cost of an MP? That'll go down well/

I've got nothing against F2P (Warframe remains one of my favourite games at the moment), but the way this has been reformatted from an online RPG into a ultra-competitive LoL-clone is… depressing on a personal level. Seems I'll be replaying WFC/FOC instead (unless RotDS is something other than a quick movie tie-in).

I've not played in a while, but Warframe is exactly the kind of model they should follow in regards Founders packs and interaction with their audience. Course, with Warframe there are regular, open and honest discussions about the game with lots of info.

Hi all,
Thought I'd drop in and try and clear up a little confusion. Transformers Universe is a free to play massively online tactical action game. We're not a LoL clone or anything like that, we're 3rd person with an emphasis on working closely with your team mates to tactically defeat your opponents.

We're free to play with optional microtransaction payments to purchase our in game currency 'Relics'. If you want to and you put in the effort you can unlock new content entirely for free by just playing the game. We're not pay to win so no amount of in game purchases will let someone dominate the battlefield. All warriors have their strengths and weaknesses and everyone can access items to give them a helping hand in a battle. Purchases are for convenience, not success.

So, the Founders packs! The top tier Cybernite pack does have a large number attached to it but it's a limited edition, so only a few will be able to own it and will give a huge amount of content for launch including all the starting warriors, a selection of exclusive skins, a figurine that you can see here and a selection of items, Relics and a season pass that will ensure you are sorted for a good long while. We plan on supporting and updating the game for years so you should definitely get your moneys worth.

Don't worry if you're not a fan of the Founders packs though, they're designed to offer great content to those who want them but not penalise those who don't. You won't be disadvantaged against a Founders owner in battle and you'll still be able to enjoy the warriors (Other than the Founders exclusives) and items when the game launches in the summer.

The Founders Packs will be available for a while longer so you've got plenty of time to decide if you want to get involved or not. We'll also be looking to invite more Beta players and showcase more of the game so now is a great time to register if you haven't already done so.

I struggle to see how £300 for the top founder's pack is a good idea. I think this game has far less of a potential market than Marvel Heroes, yet it had a top tier package pre-launch that was (IIRC) just over a hundred dollars, and a far greater variety of cheaper packs. The lack of info regarding exactly what the Combo Season Pass and Relics are/do doesn't help either. It just seems really, really expensive for something I know very little about in general, and for a free to play game in particular.

With Warframe, there was an open beta by the time I got into it, but because of that, I had no problem throwing in for a Founder's pack, and even the cheapest of those seemed to offer far more than these do. I get that as a Sort Of Free To Play game the idea is to get people hooked, then gently encourage them to pay more money to progress quicker but I'm not seeing a lot of value in these packs, especially when I doubt the game has the depth to keep me playing for very long. The high price on the Cybernite pack makes me wonder just how expensive stuff will be in-game as well. There has to be a saving, so buying stuff bit by bit over the course of playing the game will likely be uber-expensive of ridiculously time-consuming. Of course, I might be wrong, or it might just be so damn fun that I do play it loads, but I don't right now see myself spending much, if anything, on it.
