I'll still happily try out the beta, but the fact that it's a League of Legends clone and not an MMORPG irritates me. Maybe I'll feel less bitter about it once I've tried it, still, was looking forward to making my own character.

No more character creation. Instead you use characters made by Jagex. Select from a list of preset characters, and earn points to unlock new characters. Like they do in League of Legends (which is a sh*t game).

Well, Jagex did turn RuneScape (was such a great game until this year) into a World of Warcraft clone with that Evolution of Combat crap. I haven't played since then mainly because of that (the other part is the fact I don't have a computer that doesn't support playing it anymore). >:oP

...Seriously? WHY? WHY did they remove that feature? Wasn't that the ONE big thing from the initial trailers!? "Create your own transformer!" and such. Ugh, how asinine.

This is Jagex we're talking about: they may make pretty good games, but the make monumental screw-ups.

Ah ok. But if that's really true if that game becomes just a MOBA game, I think Hasbro becomes also a little mad about that? :???:

Transformers: Universe................in the immortal words of Megatron from 1987's Transformers: The Movie, "I still function." Jagex's Transformers: Universe wesbsite has made a few recent updates to their website. They've added new downloadable wallpapers, which can be found by clicking here, and according to their Comms page a new round of Beta testing is underway. We've mirrored the wallpapers below, click here to visit the Transformers: Universe website. Hopefully they're getting closer to a full blown launch.

Yep. They did some kinda switcheroo where they said it was going to be open world and character customization, and everyone got excited, then they said it was going to be a dota clone.

Thought so. Guess I'll be skipping this one then. We need another DotA-clone like we need the plague.

To be fair, there are probably a fair number of people excited for it still. They have poor taste in games, but they're excited about it! ;)

Does the yellow guy with the rocket launchers in the last pic look like Guiledart with a modern alt to anyone else? You know, with all his puppet-kibble-mass moved to his back?

Female Armada Sideways somehow looks...bland in execution. Maybe because he got so many body changes over time that switching genders just seems like jumping the shark.

I just looked that game up and it looks like complete ass. I REALLY hope that's not what this game turns out to be.

Yeah, i'm probably going to skip this one. Everything about it just screams "BAD!" to me. I love the Prime universe and the artwork is nice, but everything else just isn't doing it for me.

Visuals look good, but somehow I don't think I'm going to like the game either. That DotA shit is pretty boring for me.

As for the designs, a lot are sick, except for the faces... I miss them having noses, or at least something to interupt the flat face that makes them all look too similar.

I'm still ticked about the game removing what made people excited about the game to being with which was the character customization feature. :-x I hope somehow they can have the feature back in as an alternate option for those who don't want to do a DOTA styled game. I know that's unlikely at this point but a guy can dream all the same right?

Much time has passed since we last heard from the Transformers Universe MMO, and a couple of things being changed. Now, MrTvii from the game's forums has revealed some information about the game modes, plot, and other parts of the playability. Check out the original posts here, or read them below!

Transformers Universe

Plot - Choose your side, Autobot or Decepticons and battle it out in this free-to-play, browser based MOBA, as you command your garage of Transformers to turn the tide in hopes of winning the war between Autobots and Decepticons.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Global Warfare] - Every move you make, and choice you choose to do is reflected on the never ending war between the two factions. Using tactics, strategy, skill, and teamwork, you can dominate the battlefiled and turn the tide of the war in your favors.

[The Hangar] - The Garage is where all or you Transformers that you have purchased with Energon go into when they are not in the battle. This will help you prepare for the next battle. Here in the Hangar, you can buy new Transformers, or modify old ones by equipping them with a wide range of weapons and abilities. You also have to make make sure Transformers by keeping them prepared, by making sure they're fit, and healthy and well equipped with armor.

[Armies] - Each Commander has a wide array of Transformers choose from, and can buy, sell, and trade Transformers Warriors any time. Every Transformers is has different abilites, weapons, eqiupment to use any time to give them the advantage in the heat of the battle. It is up to up to you Commander to have courage and command your Warriors to lead them to victory.


Transformers Universe

Game Modes

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Team Deathmatch] - Autobots and Decepticons battle it out until the time ends.

[Deathmatch] - Using your array of Warriors, battle it out with all Transformers until the time ends.

[Energon Control] - Autobots and Decepticons fight to control various hot-spots of Energon.

[Search and Destory] - One team is responsible for planting the bomb, and the other team is responsible for disarming it.

[Intel Capture] - Each team is responsible for capturing the enemies intel and returning it back to their base, but also defending their own intel as well.

[Escalation] - Escalation is a survival mode similar to COD: Zombies where each team fends off against waves of enemies and bying weapons, doors, and eqiupment to help them complete each wave.

i agree fully and posted as much on the games forum...i was looking forward to developing a unique character...and with the hanger and troops you can "buy" with energon it sounds kinda like it has some RTS elements added...was so looking forward to transformers meets WoW

I'm a bit disappointed that it may not be an exploration type of game, but at the same time I still look forward to playing it. I wonder if it'll be released on Steam...

Mac/Safari user here.

I signed up last year. heard nothing.
Searching their site I could find nothing about system spec/requirement/browser requirement or anything like that.

After scouring their general forum searches, I'm getting the feeling that Mac browsers will be last in line, if at all.
So, sadly that puts me out of the BETA call-up. At this point, I'm just hoping they at least RELEASE it for Mac.

Flashy but rather un-interactive pages on their website, unreplied-to queries in their forums and these long, dark periods of no info, doesn't exactly boost confidence in your product guys. =\

yeah, quiet, slow updates to a website are one thing, the lack of anything on the forums is telling though. at this point I'll be a little surprised if it ever actually releases, and gorram amazed if it isn't a pile of robo-poo.

Seen HERE, we have a look at a new Transformer character that is going to be in Universe! This is an interesting statement for "Character" is clearly a statement that he is a static, unchangeable character in the game, further removing the personalization factor. From the trailer, he appears to be called "Meltdown", and is a medic character that transforms into a golden-yellow Hummer-like truck, much akin to Ratchet!

Fellow Seibertron.com user #Sideways# just spotted a new update regarding the Transformers Universe MOBA. The people behind the game have revealed a new character for Universe, through a Vine (short looping video), Meltdown, who appears to have Transformers: Prime Ratchet's mold in a gold and blue deco, and features a Boraya Beam Gun, Starstream Beam Gun, Protex Rocket Launcher and is also a medic. Check out some screenshots below, and click here for the Vine!

Indeed. A toy. Now.

I'm not seeing how it's sharing Transformers: Prime Ratchet's mold, though. It's a similar vehicle and head, but he's far too bulky, he lacks doors on his chest, his arms are rounded, he's shaped like a V, and there are wheels in his shoulders and on his knees. These are all traits that Ratchet lacks.
