Proper MMO?

Will there ever be a proper Transformers MMO? By proper I mean in a similar style to client based mmos like World of Warcraft etc rather than a browser based game.

I've played Transformers universe but I don't know if I can speak about it because I don't know if I'm under a NDA or not atm.

No.
There were two, the Chinese Transformers Universe, which just disappeared. And the game you're playing, Jagex's Transformers Universe, which was announce before the Chinese version, but for some reason Jagex kinda never finished it and now reworked it into what it is now.

That's really a shame, because I'd really love to design my own transformer in a game and go to town on some decepticons rather than simply take control of an existing one.

Sadly...

But no, you are not on NDA, you can speak your mind out. The game has already reached Open Beta, meaning that everybody can play it.

I still think that TF-Universe is a fun team-shooter at it's current state.

I thought the pvp was horribly imbalanced and the pve element was, whilst fun, unrewarded. The customization was pretty limited to and it really came across as pay to win in the end.

It's not really imbalanced, but when one team gains the upper hand it's hard to beat them unless you all actually plan it our and don't go attacking people on your own.

RULE 1 OF THIS GAME: NEVER EVER GO AROUND ON YOUR OWN. If you are fighting a group of 2, you need min of 2, but a recommended 3. If you are fighting 3 you need 4, if you are fighting 4...than bring everybody.


There is no real imbalance in the game, since each team has the same heroes/characters, except that they differ in the model and name and S-tech. However, they got the same weapons, same health, same shield, same everything else. Rampart and Monsoon = same guy, Tirage/Hotwire, Overclock/Drive-by.

You will see that their weapons shoot and work the same. Imbalance is only possible through OP S-techs, thing is I only see a few people using S-techs, and they are not OP, since they still are similar to their Bot counterpart (Drive-by's melee S-tech gives health for damage dealt, Overclock's S-Tech sucks spark from someone then gets heal-over-time.
