This week in TRANSFORMERS LEGENDS…

In an effort to go undetected, the Decepticons have taken to the ground. Led by Motormaster, the convoy is delivering the final component to a super weapon capable of crippling all Autobot communications. The Autobots however, have a surprise of their own and have taken to the skies to keep an eye on the delivery. Once the convoy is clear of the populated areas, Silverbolt, Skydive, and Fireflight can intercept Motormaster before they enter Decepticon territory.



Will the aerial interception catch the Decepticons by surprise or will they escape beyond Autobot reach and deploy their secret weapon?



Find out in this week’s episode, Eagle Eyes!



The Eagle Eyes episode features a cast of new Decepticons and Autobots characters.

Interested to see what they used for Barricade. Surely not his Micromaster body.

Neat that they're using the TFCC Runamuck and Runabout figures as a basis for the art.

Hey, Silverbolt's using the G1 toy's ramp as a shield! Is this only the second media appearance for that all but forgotten accessory after the TV manga issue where all 4 Scramble leaders use their base modes?

The people at DeNA and Mobage have sent us an update for the new episode, including some flashy new art to complement it! Take a look below for further details.

Today, DeNA’s thrilling mobile card battle game TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS released a new in-game episode titled End of the Road, which will run fast and furiously through October 29.

This week in TRANSFORMERS LEGENDS…

In a battle that took place eons ago, an ongoing fight against the Decepticons looked very bleak for the Autobots. A fierce and bitter rivalry developed between the Powermasters on both sides. In a Decepticon ambush, the Autobots fought a desperate battle in which Decepticon Powermasters Dreadwind and Darkwing defeated some of the remaining Autobots including their Powermaster counterparts Getaway, Joyride and Slapdash. However, an unsuspected ally halted their victory. On the brink of annihilation, the Autobots managed to survive thanks to Optimus Prime. No match for Optimus, the Decepticons had no choice but to retreat.

Now many years later, the Powermasters run into each other again on Earth, and they have a score to settle! In this episode, it's a classic Autobot vs Decepticon stand-off with jets versus cars and Powermasters vs Powermasters!

Who will be victorious? Find out in this week’s End of the Road episode!

The End of the Road episode allows players to battle and capture three of the Autobot Powermasters:

Boss Easy Campaign: Slapdash

Boss Medium Campaign: Joyride

Boss Hard Campaign: Getaway

Actually, the strangest part about them being Powermasters is the setting being eons in the past, when Powermaster technology wasn't implemented in any vintage G1 continuities until 1988 at the earliest. I mean, I know they're not even putting as much effort into the premises of these events as your average Pokemon flavor text blurb, but WTF?

Could it be that DeNA's gotten so much negative feedback that they realized "End of the Road" could realistically make everyone think they were discontinuing the game, so they slapped the past tense on it to assure us that that's not what it means?

To be fair, I'm only repeating feedback I've heard rather than judging since I haven't played, and it is SO awesome to both have a 1988-centric cast, AND actually call him DARKWING! That's right Disney lawyers, let's get dangerous!

Coming soon for TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS…



Taking advantage of the weakened barrier between the physical world and the ethereal plane, Starscream’s ghost crosses over to lead a fearsome band of Decepticons against the Autobot Headmasters. Using the electromagnetic radiation from his ghostly form, Starscream is attempting to disrupt the Autobot’s electronics to render them powerless.



Will Brainstorm and the Headmasters resist or will they lose their heads? Find out in the Ghost in the Machine episode happening October 30 – November 5, 2013.

Woah, was Fangry redesigned for a cameo in Scary Godmother?

And if they're going to keep using '88 characters, it makes me wonder if potential dire financial straits could force them to recycle some of their art for their Masterforce counterparts. Not likely, but a cheap digibash in a lean month might allow them to squeak out a profit.

Not that I'm wishing the game's demise; I want to see this awesome card art continue. I just have "End of the Road" stuck in my head still, and wonder if DeNA's hedging their bets.

maybe you guys can help me find my character.All I can remember right now is it was user Spark 24 something, I was lv.51 with the following cards in my team. Metroplex set as leader, rank 3 Optimus Prime and Grimlock, rank 4 evolution Divebomb and Sunstorm, episode Galvatron, episode Blur, rank 4 login bonus Swoop,and either a rank 3 Starscream or an episode Ramjet.

So this week's event is Boss Raid, instead of PVP as expected. Interesting. I don't stand a chance of getting Ghost Starscream, but I might be able to snag a MTM Weirdwolf. Now, I need advice. In last week's event, I snagged 5 MTM sets of Dreadwind. Should I try to actually MTM them all or keep a more diverse team? I don't like having dupes in my deck, but at the same time, it would be one of the strongest cards in my base when MTM'd. Then again, they introduce strong new cards each week, so they might be outdated soon. Any suggestions?

Sorry this is so late, but for the most part, the event cards from the last event would only be worth having multiples of for the next event. I had multiple Ruby medal cards from the last few events up to the one with Whirl (I'm so sorry that's barely English, kind of having a short-circuiting brain this morning) and they were pretty much only good en mass for the following event. The one exception is the Junkion episode Shrapnels. I have two of the lowest tier Shrapnels from that event, and they both wind up in my deck for each subsequent event.
Re: Transformers Legends Eagle Eyes Event Start Today (1528201)
Posted by That Bot on November 6th, 2013 @ 1:59am CST
Since I only had one Dreadwind Weapon, I went ahead and used my extra Dreadwinds to MTM one pair. From the Ghost in the Machine event, I got a MTM Hardhead with weapon and since I finished in the fourth prize tier, I got a Weirdwolf set. If I'd pushed harder on the weekend I probably could have gotten a Fangry, but I was busy. Not worth fretting over, hopefully I'll be freer the next event. I'm a bit pissed though, I spent about $9 on the space bridge trying to get Hardhead's weapon and I got everything but. Eventually I had to spend a ton of cubes hitting every boss I could find today to get Hardhead's Weapon in the reward points. Brainstorm's weapon is technically better, but I'll keep that as a powerful weapon for bots whose signature weapon I don't have until I can improve my team. Hopefully this login bonus Evolve Elita One can help push me to greater heights in future events.

SO. What do we wager this week's event is going to be? Campaign or PVP?
Re: Transformers Legends Eagle Eyes Event Start Today (1528207)
Posted by Burn on November 6th, 2013 @ 5:22am CST
I did good this event.

I had 380 battle cubes saved up, plus 900 Moba coins from trying their games and I got VERY lucky with the space bridge picking up a R5 Brainstorm. Plus with the ruby cards I was able to pick up a number of Hardheads.

By the time the tournament ended I had a deck power for just under 20,000. Finished in the top 2,000 and that was playing part time and I still have just under 200 battle cubes left.
Re: Transformers Legends Eagle Eyes Event Start Today (1528241)
Posted by Dagon on November 6th, 2013 @ 9:42am CST
I got a crazy load of cards from the space bridge in this event. I got pretty much every level 4 Elite pair, that I know of at least. Prime, Megatron, Galvatron, TC and Starscream, Jetfire and Flamewar, as well as the other halves of the Metroplex and Trypticon I'd been sitting on. Jazz Prowl and Bee as well. I'msort of leveling them up just to have them, but with the exceptions of Prime and Megatron they don't really seem like they're going to be of any use.

Event wise, I got Hardhead and weapon on reward points, a Highbrow and his weapon via the space bridge, and I won a Weirdwolf and Fangry. I think I finished in the top 1,500. This one was a fun event, for as much fun as a totally passive game can be.

Let's get ready for a boring evolution or pvp up next.

Our friends at DeNA and Mobage have sent us information and artwork about the new episode of the Transformers: Legends game, out today and running until November 12th! Find out more about the Golden Lagoon episode below, and take a look at the exclusive artwork.

Image


This week in TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS…

In this episode, blasters alone may not be enough to decide the outcome of the battle.

When Beachcomber discovers a Golden Lagoon he soon learns that its mysterious Electrum renders the Transformers invulnerable. The Decepticon Thrust, who was chasing Beachcomber down also stumbles upon this Golden Lagoon. He quickly jumps in and emerges completely covered in Electrum.

Soon the other Decepticons follow and Megatron believes the time for final victory over the Autobots is near. In an attempt to even the odds in favor of the Autobots, Omega Supreme believes he can crush the Decepticons with his superior firepower only to be quickly defeated by his now invulnerable enemies.

After their victory over Omega Supreme, the Decepticons set out to destroy the Autobots once and for all, only to find that Autobot headquarters has been deserted. Quickly realizing where the Autobots have gone, Megatron rushes back to the Golden Lagoon and finds his adversaries covered in Electrum. With both sides rendered invulnerable the upcoming battle will be one of terrible destruction.

The Golden Lagoon episode allows players to battle and capture three of the Autobots and offers a leaderboard reward:

· Boss Easy Campaign: Beachcomber

· Boss Medium Campaign: Sideswipe

· Boss Hard Campaign: Jazz

· Leaderboard Reward: Ironhide

Re: Transformers Legends Eagle Eyes Event Start Today (1528357)
Posted by That Bot on November 6th, 2013 @ 11:32pm CST
Okay, I'm still kinda new at this. Is there a good way to farm campaign events for useful materials? I'm not getting energon recharges for battling bosses so I can't level too fast, which means I can only get a few cubes a day. What's the trick to this one?

EDIT: Okay so you get like 3 Energon recharges every other point reward tier. 'Course those get farther and farther between as you go along so it's going to be a rush of Energon at the start and then fewer towards the end. Because they want you to pay to get the high cards. Natch. Don't know why I delude myself that they care about their free audience. Although...
I seem to be having crazy good luck with the nets in this event. Normally it's about a 30% capture rate, this time I'd estimate I've captured 70% of the enemies I've faced. I even managed to net Beachcomber on the first try. Is anybody else having this kind of success?
Re: Transformers Legends Eagle Eyes Event Start Today (1528373)
Posted by Burn on November 7th, 2013 @ 2:48am CST
Trust me, the success diminishes at higher levels and you become more dependant on the energon chains, which you're expected to buy.

This style is good for just building up resources (transmetals, battle cubes, energon recharges) for the last type of episode.
Re: Transformers Legends Eagle Eyes Event Start Today (1528381)
Posted by That Bot on November 7th, 2013 @ 3:53am CST
It does seem I spoke too soon. My catch rate averaged back out to about 10% when I started keeping track. While I definitely had a good streak at first, it wasn't a 70% rate. It's okay, I can and have gotten all these cards through the space bridge. Only reason to try to get them here is points, and I don't care enough about points to buy a ton of chains for R3 and R2 cards. I'll reserve my chains for the Evolve Jazz, and come back and snag Sideswipe if I have time. Though I do need to get one last Beachcomber card to MEM that set. I do enjoy Evolve cards, and I'm okay spending the money on chains to nab enough to MEM them. I did it in End of the Road with all 3 bosses.
So back to my previous question, any tips on farming? Do I just attack when I've got my hourly cubes to build up resources? Was spending a bunch of Energon recharges on blitzing through the Easy and Medium campaigns in the first 10 hours not a good idea? :P (that answer is probably self-explanatory) I've been losing and gaining at about the same rate. Towards the end of EOTR, I didn't make it to the Hard tier until about day 4, so I was wasting energon and cubes on enemies I couldn't guarantee a win against to try to get my 4 Getaway cards before the event ran out. Though I hear some of the higher level Hard areas are good for farming once you get there.

(I apologize for my thoughts being a bit disjointed, I'm half asking, half just talking, and also it's nearly 5 AM)
Re: Transformers Legends Eagle Eyes Event Start Today (1528951)
Posted by That Bot on November 9th, 2013 @ 10:26pm CST
Well, I'm at a loss. I've got all 4 Jazz cards, in the process of fully evolving him. I've also got a max evolved Beachcomber kicking around, waiting to be maxed. He probably won't stay in my deck long after this event, but I like evolution cards. Still. I'm not sure what else to do to take advantage of this event. I can't get much higher than H6, at H7 I cannot reliably 2-cube the battles, and even in H6 or H5 I would lose on 2 cubes if they struck first because of paltry defense. Also it takes about 6 or 7 cubes to take down the level boss, and I'm sure it only gets higher. Even if I was able to set up receiving my hourly cube, burning it on the final level battle to unlock Jazz, and then doing a few quick scans to level up and get my 3 cubes, I would still lose 3 or 4 in the process as a result. I'm down to about 25 cubes, I think I started with 40 and rose to 90 in the first few days. My deck power is 12,422, we'll see what it falls to when the attack bonuses on Jazz and Beachcomber wear off. I was going through M5 with the goal of netting Sideswipe for the hell of it, but even though it's not a drain on my cubes like the harder levels, it's unrewarding because of the low catch rate on nets. I'm not sure it's worth the energon recharges going through M5 all those times when the odds of netting the boss are low and the point rewards on battles don't make a dent in my total. So what should I do? Just try to do a little cube/point/medal farming on the lower Hard levels? Keep chasing Sideswipe? Any recommendations? I've only got 37 episode medals and 44 weapon medals left from this event, obviously I'm past the peak rewarding period. I've got 705 ruby medals to burn, should I try to save up for two guaranteed Thrusts and hope for a pair or try my luck on the 75 bridge? Is Thrust worth it? I'm sure Dirge won't be worthwhile in the long run, but I'd rather at least use the medals.

Can't really join it until their servers go back up. The app now says they've postponed the event until tomorrow (today, presumably) because of the extensive maintenance they're doing. Also the blog says this is a PVP event, so it looks like Ghost in the Machine was just an anomaly for Halloween and we're back on normal Raid->Campaign->PVP->Raid rotation.

Let's talk hauls. I nabbed a complete Beachcomber with weapon and two complete Jazz sets with weapons. I did three pulls on the 400 ruby bridge and got three Thrust bot cards, so no MTM pair there. I finished in low Tier 3 and scored an Elite Starscream pair and two R5 Ironhide cards. I don't like that I'll never complete him, but he'll still probably top my deck until login Elita One gets to second or third stage. Elite Starscream probably won't make my deck, but I'll hold onto him because I need more strong decepticons for decepticon bonus events. Also, I somehow just found out about that R5 Sky Lynx you can get by friending new players and letting them get up to level 8. Pretty sly way to get people to pester their friends to sign up, mobage. I'll have to see what I can do on that front.

I noticed that too, but there are subtle differences. Most notably, there are wheels on his shoulder where his mouse-head halves are supposed to be. None of his toys/animation models have had wheels there. On top of that, that spine on his rat mode is something to look at too. :-?

Damn it, why did it have to be Beast Wars? I LOVE BEAST WARS! And I'll never get a full set of the cards from this event because I'm not willing to pay $300 or more for the top cards. I don't even care about their stats, I just want the cards themselves. Oh well, I'll push for a T2 finish.

Also, it seems I used my extra Elita One from last month as upgrade fodder. Now I hope they change the login bonus next month so I don't forever regret not being able to have five full E1s after four months.

Anyone else notice that Dinobot is apparently aligned with the Predacons for this? He's attacking Autobots in his beast mode art.

You have to remember, though; Dinobot was briefly a Predacon during the outset of the original show. ;)

Not really digging the card art, but it's very interesting to see BW guys slaughtering G1 looking generics. So is part of the premise here that the Beast Wars happen in a G1 "present" on some alien world, and search parties hunting for the Axalon and Darksyde get overwhelmed by their crews, who've gone feral? I almost feel like this is set in the original BW microcontinuity, implied by the mini-comic, early bios, and jigsaw puzzles.

Did any of the previous campaigns' cards feature redshirt disposal on this scale?
