DownshiftG1 on legends. got heavily boned on rarity cards until I got trypticon and now he's unstoppable. Ha ha ha. I think the best weapon I have is grimlocks sword.

I don't see anything on their website about the insecticons. Saw the add last night on Facebook, clicked the link and still no luck.

Question:

When playing a mission and you either win a rare card or a weapon do they show up in the mission list? I've gotten doubles and triples of lv3 weapons and they never shop up as "acquired"

You need to restart the app (not suspend and resume) it should show up then. or what I did, play 1 extra mission after a restart and then it will update the mission spoils.

That's pretty shitty of them to say "Hope you're all enjoying the game, here's a limited time event!" when those of us with iPhones are still waiting for the game to come out.

The game now boots and shows a Harvest of the Insecticons banner you can click.|

and lol@iPhone users (you're the beast wars kids of the phone world.)

edit:

It basically replaces the boss encounters in the normal missions (the ones where you get weapons.)
The rewards are huge (2K per battle, recharge energon/battle cubes etc.) and the points you score decide your reward at the end of the event.

I think the ultimate reward is an L4 kickback.. I just sent out my cons against him and Megs one-shot him.

:BANG_HEAD:

That comment served no purpose.

I'm sorry, but I'm honestly getting sick of this. It's one thing to prefer one phone over another, and it's another to mock it. Respect our choice like we respect yours.

This isn't the iOS vs. Android thread.

The event is nice. Except that the recently fixed lag is now back, most likely due to the servers being overwhelmed.

Regardless, the rewards let you refill everything like crazy, which is the most important thing to me. You can basically scan and battle non-stop at the current races bosses show up and give rewards.

The cards you can "buy" or "get" have a special 3x or 5x on them but I think that will only last during the event. The cards are uber powerful right now though.

Every boss you defeat you get about 4 silver medals and 2 battle recharge cubes. after 3 battles I have about 30 cubes to spend on attack bonuses etc. remember, I one-shot kickback :p

You don't need a level 4 to one shot Kickback.

FFS ... the "Oops something went wrong" are fucking ridiculous today.

Only boss I'm getting is Kickback over and over and have beat him on all levels a bunch. Anyone else getting anything different? Maybe it's a boss a day or something?

At least you get the energon containers after taking down a kickback.

edit: wow, finally the spacebridge works again! it gives you 10 cards per opening (provided you have more than 10 silver medals.)

So far everything is crap L1/L2 except for 1 BB vehicle mode

Just checked, a decked out megs (l3 weapon) does 58K damage versus an L5 kickback.

The energon cube rewards basically stop after a bit. I looked at the rewards and after about 4k points (where I am) they stop. So after the "hook" it's back to the slow play, or throw money at it (which I'm officially done with at this point :P )

Apparently you can call them to beat up the tournament bosses.

You also "cheer" them which gives you points to open another space bridge option.

So is this game like war of heroes or rob where its better to level up both cards before you fuse/Trans scan? Thanks, great forum there is not much on the game out there fire some reason. I think its a great game.no lag issues so far.

btw Burn, I just got Energon/BP maxed out again when I leveled up.. must've been an issue yesterday.

no lag/timeouts for me this morning.

I actually have to sell cards all the time now since I'm always over 100 and I can't use the "new" cards till I'm under 100. Does seem more stable today so far.

you have to sell all your L1 "crap" in order to fund upgrading your other cards with the leftover L2/L3 cards.

Battles are also a good way to increase your Credits.

Posted by liquidrage64 on December 22nd, 2012 @ 9:31am CST
Yeah, but I also have a bit of a collector thing going with it. How could I not? So what I do is Transcan one of everything. And I only sell the L1's that are dups, and use the other dups for leveling my army. My goal is to have one transcan of every Transformer in the game, in addition to my army. So my army is a little less powerful then would be otherwise (I'm still like 220 wins to like 6 losses) but I'd rather do it this way.

I'm deceptirob in game feel free to add me. I'm wondering how ppl have so many points for this insecticon thing going on. When it came out I popped all of my energy tanks and still ended up in rank 400 with like 5000 points but the leaders have 26k points for this event. What am I doing wrong?

I loved this game from the start but now I am quickly losing my patience with it. Ive lost at least 5 raid bosses (level 5's....1000 points worth) due to the game simply not connecting properly. Ive lost at least 4 mini energon recharges due to the same thing. I cant believe that paying real money for these items is even an option considering the games instability at present. The fact that there are no official forums for the game is unforgivable.

Did anyone else get the rewards for the event already? When I checked this morning I had gotten the event rewards in my inbox.
Now I have all the cards you can get through gameplay, the event insecticons and a few random rares and an event Hound.
Will there be more missions to get the other rare cards?

Hmmm I'm beginning to wonder if the game is glitched or certain 4 of 4 stage cards are supremely rare. On certain stages Ive tried to get all 4 cards I fight a sub-boss for a weapon card, but that doesn't give you credit for the fourth card. I have yet to see a random draw of five cards on these stages so I'm not sure whats up....anyone else going for completionist and have any input?

It does seem that one of those two situations are in place now - the likelyhood of earning the fourth card (be it the rare-draw, or the enemy weapon) seems to be extremely rare. I HAVE noticed that when I do get the rare-card draw, I do seem to hit the Level 3 card about 20% of the time, which is pretty fair - although, sometimes I only get one shot at it, before completing the mission.

As for the 'boss' weapons, while I do seem to earn the boss battles about as frequently as the rare-card draws, I seem to almost NEVER receive the special weapon (save for the final mission battle, which seems to be a 100% success rate).
Re: Transformers: Legends Mobile Device Game Limited Time Event "Harvest of the Insecticons" (1450946)
Posted by Burn on January 1st, 2013 @ 9:56pm CST
I've completed a couple of missions and earned all four cards. If anything I think the fourth card can only be obtained through the "combat cache"

I've pretty much won all the boss weapons, even picked up a couple of them (Megatron, Mirage and Ironhides) twice.

Anyone know what the 3X, 4X, 5X are on some of the cards? I've seen them when I battle other players and have no idea what they are or what they do (can't be much as I tend to annihilate them all)
Re: Transformers: Legends Mobile Device Game Limited Time Event "Harvest of the Insecticons" (1450978)
Posted by walldoctor1 on January 2nd, 2013 @ 12:24am CST
The 3x and so on cards are for the insecticon event. Which is only on hold. It's not over, even though someone had mentored they got rewards. If it is I better get my rewards, I am ranked 97the when it was put on hold. Cheers
