Weren't they changing it from an MMO to a DotA-style game?

Yep. They did some kinda switcheroo where they said it was going to be open world and character customization, and everyone got excited, then they said it was going to be a dota clone.

Thought so. Guess I'll be skipping this one then. We need another DotA-clone like we need the plague.

To be fair, there are probably a fair number of people excited for it still. They have poor taste in games, but they're excited about it! ;)

Does the yellow guy with the rocket launchers in the last pic look like Guiledart with a modern alt to anyone else? You know, with all his puppet-kibble-mass moved to his back?

Female Armada Sideways somehow looks...bland in execution. Maybe because he got so many body changes over time that switching genders just seems like jumping the shark.

I just looked that game up and it looks like complete ass. I REALLY hope that's not what this game turns out to be.

Yeah, i'm probably going to skip this one. Everything about it just screams "BAD!" to me. I love the Prime universe and the artwork is nice, but everything else just isn't doing it for me.

Visuals look good, but somehow I don't think I'm going to like the game either. That DotA shit is pretty boring for me.

As for the designs, a lot are sick, except for the faces... I miss them having noses, or at least something to interupt the flat face that makes them all look too similar.

I'm still ticked about the game removing what made people excited about the game to being with which was the character customization feature. :-x I hope somehow they can have the feature back in as an alternate option for those who don't want to do a DOTA styled game. I know that's unlikely at this point but a guy can dream all the same right?

Much time has passed since we last heard from the Transformers Universe MMO, and a couple of things being changed. Now, MrTvii from the game's forums has revealed some information about the game modes, plot, and other parts of the playability. Check out the original posts here, or read them below!

[quote]Transformers Universe

Plot - Choose your side, Autobot or Decepticons and battle it out in this free-to-play, browser based MOBA, as you command your garage of Transformers to turn the tide in hopes of winning the war between Autobots and Decepticons.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Global Warfare] - Every move you make, and choice you choose to do is reflected on the never ending war between the two factions. Using tactics, strategy, skill, and teamwork, you can dominate the battlefiled and turn the tide of the war in your favors.

[The Hangar] - The Garage is where all or you Transformers that you have purchased with Energon go into when they are not in the battle. This will help you prepare for the next battle. Here in the Hangar, you can buy new Transformers, or modify old ones by equipping them with a wide range of weapons and abilities. You also have to make make sure Transformers by keeping them prepared, by making sure they're fit, and healthy and well equipped with armor.

[Armies] - Each Commander has a wide array of Transformers choose from, and can buy, sell, and trade Transformers Warriors any time. Every Transformers is has different abilites, weapons, eqiupment to use any time to give them the advantage in the heat of the battle. It is up to up to you Commander to have courage and command your Warriors to lead them to victory. [/quote]

[quote]Transformers Universe

Game Modes

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Team Deathmatch] - Autobots and Decepticons battle it out until the time ends.

[Deathmatch] - Using your array of Warriors, battle it out with all Transformers until the time ends.

[Energon Control] - Autobots and Decepticons fight to control various hot-spots of Energon.

[Search and Destory] - One team is responsible for planting the bomb, and the other team is responsible for disarming it.

[Intel Capture] - Each team is responsible for capturing the enemies intel and returning it back to their base, but also defending their own intel as well.

[Escalation] - Escalation is a survival mode similar to COD: Zombies where each team fends off against waves of enemies and bying weapons, doors, and eqiupment to help them complete each wave. [/quote]

i agree fully and posted as much on the games forum...i was looking forward to developing a unique character...and with the hanger and troops you can "buy" with energon it sounds kinda like it has some RTS elements added...was so looking forward to transformers meets WoW

I'm a bit disappointed that it may not be an exploration type of game, but at the same time I still look forward to playing it. I wonder if it'll be released on Steam...
