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.

Ummmm...is this somehow the result of that poll they did a few weeks back? Were votes for obscure G1 characters so spread out that the core Beast Warriors cleaned up, just like in 3 out of 4 Botcon Hall of Fames?

I've just started playing this again after a period of inactivity... Must admit, Beast Wars characters has me intrigued. I wonder if that opens the possibility for other continuities to enter this game? Anyone interested can add me - level 237, 2365 battle victories... Input code 58721979.

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.

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?

I've never felt Legends events to be very concerned with continuity. The story scraps they throw together have pretty much no bearing on gameplay.

Well, I could have finished in T2, but I didn't pick up the game on Sunday or Monday, which was a mistake, and I can't play during the final hours of events on Tuesdays. Finished around 2100th place, so no Rhinox for me. I did manage MTM'd Dinobot and Scorponok with weapons, and Dinobot is still in my deck, above stage 2 Ironhide and fully evolved Jazz and Hoist, all with their signature weapons. I haven't upgraded Cheetor or Rattrap yet. I'm sure Rattrap won't make my deck, but Cheetor might make the bottom slot. Time to do some farming for the next couple events to rebuild my supply of cubes.

Well, we got a Generations Rattrap alright, but it's pure S1 design, not like the card art for this event. So the artist was just feeling creative, I guess.

Not to mention that it's not really purely based on Rattrap's season one appearance, but a mix of his IDW and season one appearances.

Seriously don't. The event is bugged to high hell and you can get 9 Mirages if you apply yourself. Nova and Nemesis have no practical use when the opponent base is nothing but low-level players.

EDIT: Aaaand right as I say that, they fix the matchmaking so you're not fighting level 8 opponents. Buzz on the chatroom is that R3 weapons are the best defense against high decks, because of their triple attack ability.

I'm usually not one for this kind of pessimism, but...

I am kind of tired of the WFC/FOC bodies showing up in other mediums. Like in the comics, I don't mind so much that the toys look the same, but it's different continuity. In this case, I saw War Within, and I got all excited. Like, I was hoping we'd see some badass artwork of the beloved designs by Mr. Figueroa from back in 02-ish when War Within came out. Ah, the memories.

On a more positive note, I know what I'm going to read over Christmas Break!

Umbra wrote:So I finally got a phone that can run this game. How do these events work? And is there any team building strategy besides hitting recommend?

Deck-building strategy
*Don't get attached to R1 or R2 cards (common and uncommon, the ones witha 1 or 2 number value in the top right corner). Trans-scan pairs as soon as you get them to bolster your deck strength and for your cyberdex, and forget about them as soon as they're gone from your deck. You will quickly acquire several R3 (Rare) cards, and if you participate in events you can get some R4 (Super Rare) cards. With time you might be able to get a few R5 (Ultra Rare) cards. You can get an R5 Elita One by logging in every day, and an R5 Sky Lynx by connecting with 15 friends level 8 or under (most of us just made dupe accounts for this).
*For cards of R3 or higher (R4 or higher when you get to the point where R3s won't make your deck), always MTM them: Max, Trans-Scan, Max. This means max level each half of the card (bot and alt) first, then trans-scan them together, then max level them again. This will make sure your card has the highest possible stats.
*Leveling cards up will be hard at first, because you will lack resources. As you collect stronger cards, you can use the weaker ones to upgrade them. Eventually all cards R3 or below will be nothing more than upgrade fodder for you.
*You can also use transmetal to upgrade cards for cheaper. Transmetal is acquired through the daily login bonuses, occasional Mobage gifts, and from events.
*R3 and higher cards all have signature weapons. All R2 weapons and below are generic "energon hammer" types but R3 and above weapons are "Mirage's weapon", "Sky Lynx's weapon" etc.
*The "recommend" button will give you the deck with the highest possible attack power, but this is not the same as the best possible deck. Defense and Health are important stats as well, and a character's signature weapon is usually good at compensating for their particular weaknesses. If you have a character's signature weapon, it's generally best to use it over a different weapon assigned by the "recommend" feature.

*Events last six days each, starting Wednesday at 5 PM Pacific and ending the following Tuesday at 5 PM Pacific, with a day's gap before the next one. Every week.
*Remember that, despite Mobage's claims to the contrary, this game is pay to win. The best cards will be unobtainable if you aren't willing to pay $300 or more per week. If you're normal and don't like paying that much, it's okay, just learn to be happy with the cards you can get. Don't worry too much, in PVP matchups, you won't be paired up with opponents who are leaps and bounds stronger than you. You can still get GOOD cards, just not THE BEST cards.
*There are three event types: boss raid, Player vs. Player (PVP), and Campaign.
*In Raid Boss events, you play through the game normally and you'll randomly find boss cards. There are 4 bosses, with 9 levels each: ?? and 1-8. Stronger bosses will have far too much health for you to defeat without a lot of sacrifice, and are meant to be defeated with help from allies.
*In PVP events, you play through the game normally and you'll randomly find PVP battlefields. In these, you have to build up a win streak by defeating other players. The longer your win streak, the better your rewards. If you lose a fight, your streak is over and you have to find another one and start over.
*In Campaign events, you play through a bunch of new arenas similar to the ones in the regular game, and every other scan will be a mini-boss battle. You can try to capture the cards you face off against with Energon Nets (easily acquired, low capture rate) or Energon Chains (you'll be gifted a few for login bonuses and event bonuses, but mostly you have to buy them, they have a 100% capture rate). You work your way through three difficulty tiers and at the end of each tier are event cards that you can defeat and capture. As a beginner, you will probably only be able to play through the Easy campaign. If you participate in a Capmaign event, you'll get 2 of the Easy campaign event boss card, and you should be able to get enough points to get 2 Energon Chains. use these to capture two more of that card and evolve them.

*Evolving is like Trans-Scanning taken a step further. Instead of matching bot and alt cards, you have to match 4 alt cards and combine them, one at a time. 1+1=2, 2+1=3, 3+1=4 (fully evolved). As with MTMing, it's always best to max level each card before evolving to get the best stats on the final card. Yes, this is very resource intensive and Mobage knows it. They want you to spend money on Transmetal or card packs to upgrade your deck. But understand that with some patience and effort, you can do better and better in events to earn more transmetal and better cards without paying Mobage much or anything.

Thank you for the tips. Good to know about the leveling separately first, I will have to do that from now on. I'm a bit sad to learn there is no way to upgrade lower level characters that happen to be favorites into fully usable characters. Also sad there's not bonuses for using characters that should work well together like the dinobots, seekers, or Soundwave and his tapes.

Odds are your favorites will be reversioned as R4 event characters at some point, if they haven't already. Almost every character has at least 2 cards now, if not more. Jazz has 6. And yeah, the lack of "theme" bonuses is a little dismaying, but that's how it is. They've said that triple-changers and combiners are not possible in this game's coding, so there's that.
