Warning, angry rant incoming... :-x :BOOM:

Some pretty ignorant commentary in regards to itsme5712/warflower...

Jealousy? Butt hurt? There is no basis for such juvenile comments in regards the community position towards this player.

Let me preface this by saying that I have ranked top tier in this game twice as many times as 'she' has, having earned more cards than she has BOUGHT in the space bridge. My reason for commenting has nothing to do with jealousy. I have never sought a first place finish in any event. Why? B/c player 100 gets the exact same rewards as player 1, albeit with a lot more money left in their wallet. With that said, I am jealous of NO ONE. Arrogance is not a trait that I admire. I don't pine over the fact that I actually have principles and integrity. Let's be honest. ANYBODY can be a DOUCHE. No skills are required.

Butt hurt players complaining, boycotting, whatever. Not that any facts have been stated around those circumstances, but what does boycotting have to do with a cheater being banned? Are you implying that b/c 'she' spent money and boycotters didn't that the infraction should be overlooked? Here's the thing. Itsme5712 was buying from a gold farming site,i.e. Mobage wasn't getting the money. For every $100 she spent as compared to the average player, she was able to make 2-3 times more trips through the in game space bridge, or purchase 2-3 times battle cubes. How? $100 bucks spent with Mobage nets you around 10000 coins as compared to around $100 spent via the farming site she used netting around 20000 coins for her. Buying in bulk from the farming site resulted in even better pricing.

Before any boneheads claim that it was a smart 'shopping' decision on her part, Mobage is on record stating that they DO NOT authorize the purchase of in game content by using ANY 3rd party sourced coins. FURTHERMORE, the method in which 'she' acquired the in game currency is a violation of Mobages Terms Of Service. She is on record admitting to doing this. There is evidence of AT LEAST $800 in purchases from said farming site. There is/was no witch hunt, simply people that wanted justice and fair play. She claims that she spent quite a large sum of money legitimately directly through Mobage, which may or may not be true. Regardless, her credibility is forever tarnished, and Mobage made the right move by banning her the first time. Mobage cannot operate their business and maintain any credibility in their games by allowing dishonesty and shortcuts among players.

For those anti-Mobage minded folk who feel Mobage had it coming, how about the players that perhaps spent similar money who might have placed higher than her? How about the player who placed in position 101 and was robbed of the top tier finish and rewards? What if they money they had spent netted them twice the resources? How about the players who knew of her methods but refused to copy them out of honesty and integrity? If you still don't see any wrong in her actions, then your parents have completely failed in raising you.

Winning by any means necessary is the attitude that has been adopted by the trolls that supported her. Hustling gift cards, arguing against morality, spamming and trolling player profile walls, all done by her closest associates. On top of all that is the arrogance with which she carries herself. Proclaiming herself queen. Stating that she brings fear to the community. Making and posting childish videos taunting other players. Total garbage.

As for boycotters, educate yourself. A large part of the first boycott was in relation to the gambling aspect of the space bridge, not to mention its cost. There were other issues as well, including mid event changes to boss stats to shake down players for more money, issues with the game locking out players during an event costing them their standing, players who had cards and cubes randomly disappear from their accounts, as well as many suggestions to improve the games features. It is also noteworthy, that a large contingent of folks that supported and participated in the boycott were regular RANK 1 PLAYERS. These were not bitter players who continuously failed to find success in the game or were unable to invest in it. Also to CLARIFY, people who just happened to be boycotting didn't complain about itsme5712 b/c they were jealous or butt hurt. Players, such as myself, boycotted BECAUSE of her. Not only do I refuse to compete with ANYONE who does not play by the same rules that govern everyone else, I REFUSE to listen to that individual and their squad of troll cheerleaders parade around arrogantly with some distorted sense of accomplishment. In spite of what 'she' and her posse may think, they are not above playing on equal footing with everyone else. Either we all have equal opportunity, or shut the damn game down.

If you are interested in improving the game and making it more accessible to players, I suggest you look up some information on the current boycott of the game to find out what it is all about. You can do so by checking out the TFL Boycott page on facebook. Rather than make stupid comments/assumptions about the people who started or support the campaign, why not find out exactly who they are and how they are fighting for honesty, integrity, and improvements in everyone's gaming experience.

/rant. I feel better.

You know, I'm fairly certain that everyone who has posted in this thread have been supportive of those undertaking the boycott.

Can you give some quotes that say otherwise? Your rant completely baffles me as you seem to be attacking people that just aren't posting in this thread.

Ok, so here are the comments I take issue with. Granted they are from one user, but I see ignorant crap such as this far too often on other fan pages and forums. I'm at my wits end trying to argue right and wrong with people who have no understanding of concepts such as honesty, integrity, or fair play. People whose only retorts are insults and accusations of jealousy. Totally elementary.

"They write a petition to mobage to ban her account because she has an "unfair" advantage over players (albeit non paying butt hurt boycott players)."

"unfair"...? As if there is no legitimate claim from players that she was cheating... Really? 1. Mobage is on record stating that they do not authorize the purchase of in game content using funds procured via 3rd party sites. 2. In order to fill her account with those coins, she had to violate Mobage's terms of service by turning over her login information over to said 3rd party website so that they could access her account and load her purchases. 3. Is it really up for debate that two players can spend the same amount of cash with one getting 2-3 times the resources to use in game from their investment?

"albeit non paying butt hurt boycott players" Ignorant comment. 1. 'Butt hurt' implies jealousy. I do not envy cheaters or any individual of questionable values and principles. Between her videos taunting other players, proclaiming that she is the queen of the game, claiming that she brings fear to all players, having her lackeys spam the profile pages of other players with profanity, hustling for itunes cards, messaging other players with false information to give her and her allies a better in game advantage, she and her kin have proven to be total unscrupulous trolls. Being a total douchebag is easy, there are no enviable skills required to be one. In addition, I personally have never sought a first place finish. Why? B/c I got the same rewards she did, albeit with a lot more cash left in my wallet. What do I have to be butt hurt about?

2. Do you know any of the individuals who participated? Itsme5712/Warflower was a primary reason for many SPENDING players to boycott, myself included. To insinuate or assume that those who participated never invested in the game is completely absurd. If the boycott were comprised of 'butt hurt non spending players' it wouldn't be much of a boycott would it? In fact, the boycott was filled primarily with players who regularly finish in the top 2 tiers, including the gentleman who placed FIRST in 3 out of 4 events in September. The folks that organized and support the boycott are community minded individuals. They seek fairness for all players in addition to improvements in gameplay, disclosure & communication from Mobage, and more. Selflessness and jealousy are not compatible or comparable traits.

"Then they go as far as trying to figure out who she is, what her real name is, her real address and email so they can bombard her with hate mail and such." Outrage? Yes. Unkind comments? Yes. Harassment? Any proof to back that up? Any venom sent her way is simply in RESPONSE to her arrogant statements and juvenile behavior. Trying to figure out her real name....? Considering she has posted much of that information in blogs on her wiki page or on twitter, those accusations seem pretty silly.

"Mobage closes her account to make the hate zealots happy."Hate zealots? Again, another ignorant comment. It's pretty easy to figure out by now that you see no wrong doing in her actions. Cheating, taunting and antagonizing other players, all acceptable behavior to you. Dismissing players with grievances as being 'hateful' or 'jealous'? Neither are legitimate rebuttals to any argument made here. In fact, they are pretty juvenile statements used in place of any actual legitimate argument. 'You don't share my beliefs or values so I'm going to insult you!' WEAK.

"The nod to the players at the end are the people that were leading the hate charge against her, I believe."
Actually those are her supporters. The folks that she used to spread disinformation. Folks she used to try and hustle iTunes cards for her. Folks that spammed players Mobage profile walls with profanity. Classy people.

"I'm just assuming she has a ton of money and she was being a savvy "coupon" shopper by purchasing itunes cards on discount sites from vendors that buy so many, they already get a discount for distribution.

So that's the story behind that."
Incorrect assumption. In fact, she tried to use that ridiculous 'coupon' shopping argument. Completely laughable. Coupons are issued by manufacturers as incentives. Mobage has NO AFFILIATION with any 3rd party golds site. As stated before, they are on record stating such.

There is way too much bargaining and excuse making for 'her'. I find it disgusting and deplorable that anyone could try to justify 'her' actions.

While I won't speak for Monuo, he can do that himself, I'm pretty sure that he wasn't excusing or justifying her actions. Moreso, I believe he was trying to tell the story as he knew it for guys like myself who don't frequent any of the other TF boards and don't have access to the information.

If it turns out that you have more information on the topic and you can shed more light on the issue, then great. Good on you. However, I really think that you are getting spun up about nothing.

Also, my personal opinion is that you also have little to gain from your rant. Judging by the level of inactivity in this thread over the last few weeks, I think most here have moved on from the Warflower issue and plenty have moved on from this game in general.

I'm not too familiar with Mobage's user agreement or terms of service or whatever they are calling these days but if you are right that it says that 3rd party funding is illegal then it's pretty indisputable that she cheated.

With that said, it'll be hard to garner any sympathy from me. Here's the way I see it: Warflower was willing to spend $1000 for a one week episode. Whether she spent it through a 3rd party or she gave it straight to Mobage, she was still willing to spend $1000. With her, there are probably a ton of other players who are right there with her. Perhaps not to that extent but enough to spoil the game for the players who don't have that kind of disposable income.


It is my point of view that the crazy spenders of this game have sent it straight down the crapper. I just can't, in good conscious, feel sorry for a few players who were only willing to spend $200 a week on this game and are upset because she spent $1000 illegally. If you have that much disposable income or that much financial irresponsibility if you're broke that you'll spend that much money on a card that will be out of your deck in 2 months anyway then you got what's good for you.

She is not what's wrong with the game. All of the massive spenders are what's wrong with the game. It would be a waste of time to rally the troops against her and protect the game from her when there's 100 more of her just waiting in the wings.

DoubleCross, Grotusque, Repugnus, Sprocket, Erector(make it happen people)


The whole no multichanger thing really sucks cause i would've went with sixshot & doubledealer instead of slugslinger & gutcruncher. And its to bad they said autobots & decepticons cause then we might have gotten away with beast war characters.

The actual joke being that we know that'll never get Hasbro's approval because they warned us three Botcon Hall of Fames ago to never do that again. Waspinator beat Erector anyway.

Besides, he was genuinely one of the best Micromaster toys, having a trailer that became a mini battle station, endowed with a cannon that--NO! No, too stupid, must resist...

@EnergonPoopShoot

It's been a while since I visited the site. I read your rant. You know you can explicitly come out and target me if you want.

After reading my original post, then reading your rant, I debated whether to even respond to you as I wondered if you would even give my side of the story any chance at all. Then I decided I don't care whether you believe my side or not, so here it is.

1-- I am part of the boycott, I've been part of it since the beginning.

2-- There are a bunch of boycotter's, most are okay, but there are groups of them that are butt-hurt, hate zealots.

3-- She used gold farming sites, she broke the rules, she was suspended, I fully support this, never said I didn't

4-- She bought discount itunes cards, not against the rules, anyone can do it, many are doing it still, if I wanted to spend any money on this game again, I would look for a discount too

5-- I was handed and asked to sign the petition, I did not because I believe the boycott isn't about getting rid of other players, its about fixing the game, its features, the pay structure, etc. Besides, banning her would just cause exactly what we all knew would happen, she'd open another account and make a scene of it. I laughed. And yes, you can argue getting rid of cheaters is part of the boycott but there will always be cheaters everywhere, so its WAY down my list of importance.

6-- I was asked about her identity, email, etc by people that claimed to be boycotters with their intentions. Many others were asked as well.

7-- The names at the end of the youtube video could have been wrong, I stopped following the drama behind it.

8-- I back my post 100% as its based on 100% of my personal experience with boycotters and this situation. Frankly, I'm disgusted and ashamed by most of them, but as I said, there are some good ones.

While I think your rant was a little over the top, I believe you are probably just trying to protect the good people of the boycott and that's a chivalrous notion I can respect, but in no way take my post personal, the people I'm slandering know who they are.

If you have more information than I did about the issue, that's great but the ship has sailed. Warflower or any other personification will be here until she is tired of spending. Let her spend, who cares, focus on fixing the game to a point where the community can enjoy it properly, that's what the boycott is about and should be. If the community lets a cheater bother them that bad, stop playing the game. At the very least, watch her video and laugh at her for blowing thousands of dollars on a PHONE GAME. Seriously, laugh at her, its hilarious she spends so much money and makes a video all for what seems to be attention mongering!

Sorry that is a tangent. Again, I don't expect you to see my side of it but that's ok, just respectfully disagree.

And I know the devastator pic flipping the bird is for me, its pretty cute and funny. But if you're done making your point, will you please take it down, or at the very least, add a funny quote like:

"TO QUOTE DICK CHENEY, GO FUCK YOURSELF!"

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.

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.

I wish these plot blurbs had any impact on the gameplay besides what characters are available. I've only been playing regularly for about a month now and the only thing that keeps me coming back is the allure of new cards.

is there any way I can recover my TFL account, for some odd reason all my stuff was deleted after this update.

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.

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?

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.

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

The hell is going on with Skywarps gun/guns?

He has an obviously large classics style launcher with a tiny normal arm cannon attached to the bigger gun.

It looks... very odd.

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 Original Artwork by Marcelo Matere (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.
