DeNA has announced the latest event for their Transformers Legends mobile device game, "When Sparks Fly". Check out the details and promo art below. The game can be downloaded by clicking here.

WHEN SPARKS FLY" A BEAST WARS EVENT IS NOW LIVE!


Racing to a volatile crash site in the wilderness, the Maximal Silverbolt is astonished to discover a pod marked only with an “X” at the crater’s epicenter. Still unsure of what the pod contains, the villainous Predacons attack Silverbolt, trying to steel the pod! Leading the charge, Predacons Blackarachnia, Waspinator and Terrorsaur overpower the noble Maximal, but Silverbolt will go down fighting!

Terrorsaur accidentally breaks the pod open during the battle and its contents are let loose—the abomination called Rampage, a mish-mash of scientific monstrosity created to destroy and devour its enemies—and Rampage thinks EVERYONE is his enemy!

The bombastic battle knocks Silverbolt and Blackarachnia into a swamp where they are forced to rely on each other to survive. At first, bitter enemies, Silverbolt’s chivalrous attitude slowly wins over Blackarachnia’s acidic personality. The two survive and rejoin the melee, only to discover that while on opposite sides of the battle line, the two have more in common than either would have dared believe.

The skirmish with Rampage is joined by Depthcharge, a fierce Maximal who recognized the crashed pod for what it was, the prison holding Rampage! Blaming Rampage for the slaughter of dozens of his friends, Depthcharge is out for revenge!

"...robots die!"

Battlebots was on at the same time Fox was airing butchered reruns of Beast Wars, so it makes enough sense.

And hey, Terrorsaur lived until at least Bad Spark in game 'continuity'! Awesome! Here's hoping his card is his Transmetal body.

Okay, so I take it she doesn't actually appear in this, lest the Technobots have to fend off Disney lawyers?

Actually, they'd make for an interesting ultra-rare card, maybe represented by that Optimouse Prime toy...

I'm surprised they never tried for a legally safe analogue.

If they put a woman in a body suit and have her shoot electricty and call her Buzzkill or something can Hasbro still get sued?

They "have" tried... that's why we have Spike in Re-Generation dressed up as "Circuit Smasher"

Yeah, but that's basically the character of Spike in a new outfit. I'm talking about doing Circuit Breaker again but just tweaking her enough to avoid litigation.

Sort of like a Jetfire->Skyfire deal. Can Disney still come after them?

Not if there are enough differences between the two. Like, if the costume looks different enough from but still vaguely similar to the spirit of Circuit Breaker's suit, and if her name is different, and such.

After all, Circuit Smasher if pretty much "Circuit Breaker as a dude", but his differing gender, name, identity, etc. makes him okay to use. If he were a woman, however, that might be pushing it unless she was given a more unique face and hairstyle to make her different enough from Circuit Breaker.

After all, the Club gave us a Shattered Glass analogue to Circuit Breaker a few years ago, but her costumed name was "Emulator" and her powers were an inverse of Circuit Breaker's, being to absorb energy into her suit rather than generating energy from within, which she would then release in form of attacks copied from the abilities granted to the SG Autobots by their power chip rectifiers (in other words, she takes their powers and uses them in copied form). Her look was also different but still vaguely similar enough to recognize her:

The war between Autobots and Decepticons has ravaged the ground and burned the skies! Now it plunges into the dark and deadly depths of the oceans!

The war between Autobots and Decepticons has ravaged the ground and burned the skies! Now it plunges into the dark and deadly depths of the oceans!

A massive storm forces the evacuation of several oil platforms off the coast. Waverider and Seaspray are on hand to aid the humans above the ocean. With chaos spreading on the ocean’s surface, the real danger lies beneath as Nautilator and the Seacons make their way towards the abundant supplies of oil.

Seaspray realized the Decepticons are likely to use the cover of the storm to get at the rigs, and is about to investigate when, like a shark shooting towards its unsuspecting prey, the Seacons breach the surface of the ocean and attack him! With the raging weather above them and the Seaconsbeneath, the Autobots are cut off and unable to call for reinforcements. Will Waverider and Seaspray weather the storm above and below the ocean? Find out in TRANSFORMERS Legends: DEADLY DEPTHS!

Any tips on how to succeed in a Team event? Also can anyone explain how the ally system works?

Actually a perfect premise for the game's purposes of generating a unique episode, yet ironically based on the one other David Wise story that might actually be worse than The Rebirth. This really makes me appreciate the richness of the TF mythos, varied quality and all.

Not enough that I think they could wring a decent event out of Prime Target though.

(I love Dave's work, of course; I'm just surprised that this story got referenced in the game before much of his mythology-defining stuff)

Loosely based on the Athenia games in Five Faces of Darkness Part 1?

The funny part is, given the volume of AKOM errors tarnishing that epic, it's not too big a stretch to pretend these three characters were actually there, but misdrawn or omitted by mistake. Could the red guy who looks like Lightspeed extended into a Station Wagon be...SG Drift?!?

I uninstalled this today. My tablet only boasts 4gb and sadly, Google's mantra is "shut up, you want it even if you don't, you're having it" and as such, that 4gb rapidly disappears.

And with the release of CSR Classics on Android, well ... Legends can go bye bye in favour of a game where even if you spend money, you actually get something that benefits you more than a week before it's made redundant.

Goodbye TF Legends, I played you from the beginning, but your desire for my wallet just doesn't cut it.

HEH-HEH, HEH-HEH!

So wait, the previous event actually does count as FFOD Part 1, even though it was called "THE GALACTIC GAMES"?

Three somewhat random character choices for the ep; Runamuck didn't even debut until Chaos. Hope there's more, because 'Plasma-Bath Galvatron' and 'Galvatron Destroying Thrull' would be awesome rare cards.

You're mistaken, there was a Five Faces of Darkness Part I last week... It had the slightly more nonsensical combination of Sludge, Slug, Cliffjumper and Outback versus Tantrum and Thundercracker, following the kidnapping of Kup, Magnus and Spike by a "Skuxxoid."

Ah, thanks! Despite my interest in WTF they're thinking with the premise, I don't have a device or spare cash to play these, so I never really look into it beyond this thread.
