UNLEASH THE BEAST

EPISODE DURATION: 5/8 - 5/15

Shockwave has made a terrible mistake! Uncovering an ancient sample of CNA, he cloned some of the deadliest and most fearsome lifeforms from Cybertron's past. However, not even he could anticipate the beastly fury of these ancient monsters. Now that they are on the loose, it's up to you, Razorclaw and Divebomb to hunt them down and stop them.... before Lord Megatron finds out!

WHO MAY ENTER

Anyone is free to enter after reaching level 5.

EPISODE RANKINGS

When the Episode ends, players are ranked according to the amount of Episode Points they've accumulated, with high-ranking players receiving powerful limited edition TRANSFORMERS Legends cards!

FINDING TERRORCON SQUADRONS

After starting the Episode, you can find Terrorcon Squadrons through exploration. The Bosses can be found in both Decepticon and Autobot missions.

I started playing this a few days ago and I'm level 31 with 119 cards and 31 weapons. I've been leveling up my cards before I transcan them because they are stronger than they would be if you transcan them without leveling them up. And it's good to see that another episode is starting already right when the Fatal Fury one ended a few days ago

Awesome! Can't wait to see which cards it unlocks. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that when leveling a character, it levels quicker if you use the card for the same character. Is this correct?

I've tried that and it didnt level any faster. Although during the episode they were doing double xp so you may have noticed faster leveling then.

Here is what i did to test. Rare 2 Sludge is worth 1000 credits when used for leveling. I put 8 of him into a rare 3 optimus, got me to level 13 plus some on the level bar. Then i did the same to rare 2 sludge and got to the same place on the level bar.

When leveling up a card does it make a difference if you use all autobots on an autobot or is there no differences if you use autobots and decepticon cards to level up a certain faction. Also how do you level up weapons fast I barely get weapons but character cards I get a ridiculous amount during episodes I constantly fill me base up and have to sell cards so I can make room and have money to level up my team using the rarer cards. Also I must be very lucky because I get a lot of level 3 cards from the silver medal space bridge. I only bought one evel 3 card from the store all the rest I won or pick in the card cache and I have to give my daughter credit for that she is extremely lucky. I'd say 95% of the time she picks the level 3 card out for me lol.

Also when I looked at the episode rewards all the way at the bottom it said 100 silver medals but I did not receive them. We're we supposed to get them and I finished just above the 2000 mark so I got 1 set of cromia 2 sets or arcee and 2 sets of fire starter and their weapons but no medals.

Faction does not make a difference in leveling. I used the same method of 8 sludges for 8000 pts on an autobot and a decepticon and both ended up just over lvl 13, starting from lvl 1.

However, one thing to be said about leveling. The level of the cards you are using for fodder matters. During this last event I took a slipstream from lvl 1 to lvl 56 by using 8 MTM rare 3 cards that I no longer needed. The cards were 2 r3 optimus, 2 r3 megatrons, 2 r3 starscreams, and 2 r3 grimlocks. Remember that double XP was in effect so normally that may have only gotten me to around lvl 35-40.

Weapons used to be very difficult, now they are handing out gold weapon medals for participating in "tougher" boss battles like lvl 6 firestar, arcee, chromia, and elita one in the last episode. I ended the episode with 1800 medals. Waiting for the next episode to see if they do double xp on those.

Silvers have been giving up r3 decently. Usually out of 2000 silvers, I get around 60 r3 cards and sometimes an r4. My luck last episode, I got 6 r4 cards before it ended, then I cashed in 200 more golds when it was over to level up my elita and got R4 Grimlock robot mode.

Daughter's good luck is always a good thing, get her started on transformers at a young age and you've started right!

The bottom tier was for people who placed in that area, it's not all inclusive to every tier. They only get the 100 silver medals, you get actual level 4 event cards instead of the 100 silver medals in the tier after that. What's listed at each level is what you get.

Seems like the game is back up.

I went to base and checked out selling prices for cards and the 2x is not in effect yet. Was hoping to get a jump on it to mtm my Elita-One and team.

Thats very interesting to know how much they give you for MTM R3 cards, but I still dont think I will use them in leveling. I'd rather keep them for nostalgia's sake. Some of the events I find myself with so many cards that I'm MTM'ing R3s that I know I'll never use just to make room for more cards from the missions.

I'm going nuts trying to get pairs for the R-4s I've picked up in the space bridge. Got a Tripticon, Flamewar, Galvatron, Elite (Not episode) Thundercracker and Prowl in one form. Might use some of them in the event today as fodder because of the 2x, but until I can make pairs and MTM they are just pretty to look at.

Good Luck in the event everyone. Add me if you see me around. PSUPaul1.

I freakin wish. My wife is ready to strangle me because of this game. New event starts today I'm going to go ahead and guess 8 PM EST because thats the time all of the other events I've played in started.

They really need to space these out or I'm going to either have to:

A: Sit a few out.

or

B: Find room to sleep in the dog house next to my Rottie.

This may be one that I sit out. It will really depend on how many cubes I can store up in the first few hours. If they run this episode like the last one and give energon refills for first strike rewards on the second boss, I won't be able to earn enough cubes to make a serious run at the top 300. I figure I'll need 200 cubes minimum but probably closer to 300 to make a serious run. My math says that I spent somewhere around 270 cubes during the last episode. A better deck at the start of this episode means I'll accrue more points earlier without spending as many cubes.

If this is the case, I'll use the first couple days just earning medals for the sake of leveling all of my reward cards from the last episode. I'll play as long as I can without losing cubes. When the bosses get difficult to the point that I start losing cubes, I'll bow out and save the cubes for the next episode. I'll continue to employ this method until I have the target number of cubes I'm after so that I can take an episode seriously.

Joe

That is my plan. I have 7 cubes. I think im tough enough now that i can start 1 cubing the first couple lvls of the 3rd boss now but we'll see what happens in this everchanging rollercoaster.

I think im going to submit for voting to refill 1 cube per 30 minutes, also i wish we could store 4 or 5 cubes at a time.

Or i know this is cheap but they would make easy money upfront and give more play value to the customer. Let us pay $5 to buy the above said upgrade permanently.

I'm a little better off. I have 67 cubes in storage plus the 3 you always hold. But if memory serves, I earned less than 100 cubes before I started encountering the second boss and breaking even last episode. That won't be anywhere near enough cubes to make a run. Plus, I won't be spending any money this time (or again possibly) to get the 5X card. I consider my draw last time with only $10 spent to be nothing short of miraculous. I won't have the 5X or 3X cards to boost my deck power like last episode and none of the Autobot reward cards from last episode will get 2X bonus for this episode, so I don't know how much punch my deck will pack just yet when it comes to the harder bosses. Therefore, unless I can get over 200 cubes in storage in the first day, I won't even entertain the thought of trying to get top prizes this episode.

I agree, I would probably pay a one time fee to have my cubes and energon, for that matter, recharge faster. Recently, I also thought to myself how glorious it would be to take your active cubes and deposit them into your inventory. I would pay for that option too. I mean the developers have made battling a complete waste of time anyway. I barely even use my cubes when I'm not in an episode. It would be nice to save them for later for more important things.

Looks like Im adjusting my entire deck again then.

Joe i keep telling myself Im going to get ahead and then quit but then i get greedy. i was able to get myself to 113 ranking before the big guns came out.. the ones after the 1080 rewards.. but i was so burnt out i fell out of the top 300 and never got back in.

I love the events but they are too close together and too long. three to four days would be more than enough imo.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Once you get going, it gets hard to stop. I suffered from that early on as well. I would keep spending cubes and spending cubes until I had no choice but to come to terms with the fact that I wasn't going to meet whatever goal I was trying to meet. At which point, I would stop playing entirely and save my cubes.

However, because of the fact that they are rolling them out so fast, its becoming easier to exercise more self-control. Heck, I'm still feeling a little burn-out from the last one. even if I had the resources, I still don't think I'd be too excited about it.

But at the same time, I'm still glad that its happening. Episodes are the best time in the game to get your best cards leveled fast. So I will never complain that they are doing too many of them. Now I may complain about some of the rule changes that they employ during those episodes........

Well good luck to all.

I forgot that I had almost 400 explore energy refills, guess Im going to blow through those to gain a bunch of cubes assuming the rewards are the same as last, then get several explores back by killing a ton of 2nd bosses.

We'll see what happens.

Oh, I tried something with my phone and my wife's google nexus. You can, in fact, have 2 devices logged into the same account. Today I tested doing battles on one while exploring on the other. It was a little clunky because sometimes I would get a connection error on the device I would switch to after I started something on the 1st device, but it worked.

Remember when I was griping about playing the first 5 hours of the last event straight and I was at 100k while 1st place was at 300k? That's probably how. I'm not going to attempt it because I fear getting banned for cheating, if you count that as cheating. I guess if they allow it then its not cheating.

Has anyone else tried this with any luck?

Have an iPhone and an android tablet. When I play on one the other updates immediately. Careful doing that as I have read about data corruptions happening as a result of two device play.

Also good luck everyone. Not spending a dime on this one so lets see if top 300 happens again.

WTF?!

So many changes. Go to upgrade and you can use 20 cards now OR TRANSMETALS? Wonder what those do. Also, when I use the upgrade and do 20 cards, I get +12. Does that go to stats?

So much stuff to relearn now.
Re: Next Transformers: Legends Episode "Unleash the Beast" (1485883)
Posted by monuo_ripts on May 9th, 2013 @ 7:18pm CDT
Okay, the +12 just represents how many card beyond the first 8 you see. 8+12=20 max cards

So I'm at work, as always when these episodes start and end. I just got back to my desk after a couple hours of handling business away from it. I haven't had a chance to start the episode yet and after reading the last couple posts, I'm not sure if I even want to turn the game on or not.
Re: Next Transformers: Legends Episode "Unleash the Beast" (1485919)
Posted by _Anshin_ on May 9th, 2013 @ 9:21pm CDT
Ok here is what I've learned so far.

Weapons are easy to come by, however the gain for upgrading against cards has been reduced.... By a bunch. Seriously 40 weapons cached in and I moved one level on a weapon upgrade opposed to last week when I cashed in 5 and got 2.

Transmetals are what they are pushing for upgrades. 2 transmetals moves the XP more than 10 rank 2 cards.

Bonuses are applied to named cards for the hunt (Shockwave / DiveBomb/ etc.)

There is no bonus XP as far as I can tell on anything...

A deck of a minimum 4k will do at least 1.3million in damage

A deck of a minimum 5k (same weapons) will do easily that on one cube.

A deck of a minimum 6k (2.5 million give or take)

Boss Rewards:
Participation: silver warrior
First attack: small energon
finisher: battle cube
MVP : Gold weapon
co-op: Gold Weapon

rank points:
Rewards seem to be consistent. Credits / battle cubes/ Transmetal(or weapon upgrade material), Gold Warrior mednal, episode gold weapon materials

Farming weapons seems easier now. If you can two shot a boss you are almost guaranteed a weapon. 1 shotting the boss not so much

It seems like they are pushing for less of a character upgrade / max and more of a weapon upgrade max.

That is understandable. I'm hoping to place somewhere other than dead last this time. I would like to get a nice reward instead of the dead last stuff for a change.

Top 1000 should be your goal....otherwise you must get top 100 to be worth it.

I have never broken the top 10,000 I don't think.

FYI: 20 lvl 2 cards is equal to roughly 5 Transmetal (1:4 ratio)

I..uh...I.....I don't know what to say. Did anybody see the episode of South Park where Steven Speilberg and George Lucas rape Indiana Jones?......I think they raped our game.

I'm going to reserve judgement until the later bosses, perhaps the later bosses offer more cubes for rewards as incentive for people to battle them.

But as of right now, it just doesn't look good.

Anybody know why some of my cards have little, black stars on them and some of them don't?

I DO like how they made Shockwave a 2X card. It adds a little weight to the backstory. But thats about all I like so far.

Those cards you have done max level (leveled both the cards then leveled the trans-scanned)

There is currently a glitch with it however as my hardshell was MTM'd and does not have it.

Yeah, I thought I did all of my cards to the max level, but I didn't see a star so I figured I might have trans-scanned early.

If you MTM anything before the big February 28th update, it won't have the star because all those cards were broken and never got the fix applied to them.

Only cards that were MTM after the February 28th update will have the star.

I have 4 R3 cards left that were done before feb 28 just because I wanted to see if they would ever fix it and they have never done it.

Don't expect them to fix it either. Last event was when I got tipped off that for them it was about sucking their customer base dry rather than actually offering a quality product.

The changes made to the second episode boss cube drops, the jumping straight into another event before people can max out their prizes from the last event, bugs still not fixed and no trading feature, all told me that this game is always going to be sub-par.

It's a pity. Day of the Dinobots ran pretty smoothly and while Robots in the Sky happened a couple of weeks too soon for my liking, it was a well balanced event and the game, short of a trading feature, seemed to be heading in the right direction.

At that point I was happy spending some money on battle cube recharges in the end and the only event cards I was missing was a set of Sharpshots and a robot mode Mirage.

The Furies event sent that all to hell though. Dropping in a new event a day later and especially nerfing the recharge drops on Arcee (1 battle cube vs 2 previously for a second boss) reduced the game to a point where it had just turned into a money pit that was clearly never going to improve.

By day 3 of the last event, even though I was circling around the 700s, I quit and I have no regrets. The only thing which might interest me at some point is if physical versions of the cards are released or a book containing the artwork. Other than that, I'd rather spend money on actual Transformers tbh.

It appears that participation medals are also gone too. I just helped somebody finish a boss and all I got for my troubles was my cube back and a few points. Unless they just don't show them adding up after a battle, that is.

Also, I don't know if this was a glitch or what but I fought a lvl ?? Rippersnapper and I got 4 cubes for beating it. 1 each for first strike and finisher and 2 for MVP.

I dont think the ?? are glitches, just freebie fights to replenish cubes. I get 1 about every 15 or so fights. Saw a alot of firestars like that last episode.

Really wish there was a wall or something that showed what every update contained, like a patch log or something.

I wonder if I could have some advice from you more experienced players of this game

I'm very new to the game and this is only my second event and I want to know what people would do in my situation. From the last event I gained a firestar in both forms and I've understood MTM ing is the best thing to do in the long run so I'm aiming to do just that. I also have both forms of a mirage and both 3x dive bombs from this event to MTM. I have 43 battle cubes stored from the start of this event and I'm finding that I can 1 cube at least up to level 3 of the first boss (I haven't met anything higher yet).

I have lots of medals currently so no shortage of cards to upgrade with but the problem that I've found is that my alpha tokens have run out very quickly trying to upgrade my firestar.

So what would people do in my place, sell off level 2's and weapons gained from the medals in order to upgrade now, or let this event pass me by a bit and wait until I gain the credits needed to upgrade from exploring and selling level 1's?

Thanks for any input.

Doing much better this go round than last. I like the weapons options. I've maxed all but two of the weapons my squad is using currently. The Transmetal instead of using bots options is nice too as long as you have the Transmetal laying around. I shot to the top 400 last night though woke up this morning and I'd dropped into the 2400s, before I headed into work I'd managed to get to 1300 or so.

As long as you can finish the fight you start, you should be ok on cubes. I haven't dropped below what they granted me yet, but I expect that to change as bosses get stronger. A few of them I've had to two cube because I haven't leveled up my 4's from the last event yet.

Mine weren't showing up on my iPhone in inventory. They were showing up on my Android tablet when I checked there and I could upgrade with them there. I need to check and see if I need to download an update to my phone though as the tablet auto-updates and my phone doesn't. The Droid version definitely had some changes made to it.

Cheers, good pickup :)

I went to app store on my ipad and checked updates and there it was.
I hadnt thought about it bc the game had been rebooting/updating all day while I was playing, perhaps bc i hadnt done the main update.

Anyways thanks mate.
