I'm sad to see it go as well even though I quit over a year ago when this thing just drains the crap outta my batteries.

So true.


Anyway, I can't say that I'm sad to see it go. I stopped playing because I found the gameplay style very weird (and i forgot my password).

unless you are texting or talking to soemone everything else you do on phone will drain battery fast companies are busy making computers fit in pocket palm of hand instead of keeping useful stuff on phone internet, talk and text everything else is pointless and waste of space on phone memory internet, games, applications on phones drains it fast but talking and texting does not not difficult find that problem

In all honesty, this wasn't the best game. The old G1 awakening game was better, even if it was severely limited. I've owned most tf games, consoles and mobile, and I'm starting to come to the realization that the concept just doesn't translate well into a game, however much it seems like it should. Hopefully something will prove me wrong in the future, after all, Batman games sucked before Arkham Asylum

I just kind of quit that game one year ago, just too many "pay-to-win" players that made it impossible to get decent rating in the events and get cards worth the effort for a free player, so this news is quite a bit on the "who cares" side.

But the satisfaction of thinking about all the money they wasted to make my game miserable, now gone forever, is quite refreshing...

I'd been playing regularly for about 2 years. I noticed this last event that a lot of the usual top players weren't on, and it's been really glitchy for a few weeks. I put in a LOT of my free time on this game and sometimes spend a bit of cash. It's addictive, and now it's going away. Just sad I never got a level 8 character. Also that we won't be getting new art because some of it, like the last Rodimus, is amazing! If they could ever release a gallery I would buy it in a heartbeat.

As some others have commented, I'm playing TF Battle Tactics now. It's less time consuming and I like watching the chibi TFs bounce around when they win. However with the most recent event it seems like another cash grab. One good thing is that I may have met a new friend in my area because of one of the leagues I was on.

I agree I was in the top 3000 range all the time but couldnt get higher cuz I didnt pay for the 16x characters. Then the last update deleted my login info and I havent been able to log back in. Which is probably helped the demise.

Never played the game, this kind of thing just isn't for me-but I am sad to see new initiatives and creative or independent ideas keep being thrown in the toilet because it's only source of cash is the individual customer.
From reading the experiences of you folks it sounds like the game was no fun or use without constantly throwing money at it-which can't be done by the average customer. Being made to feel like entertainment is only for the elite is bound to put people off, too.

Not sure what I'm trying to say...but it's a shame a source of entertainment can't exist from backing of sponsors and publishing companies, allowing fans and players to relax with something fun without having to shoulder the burden of it's entire existence. Sure, you pay something-product is to be bought. But...I know how much I hated FF13-lightning returns. You spend 40 bucks on the game but then find yourself constantly spending extra at the sony store for extra weapons, garbs etc.

Sorry, this may not pertain entirely to the topic at hand. Just seems every 5 minutes something is being closed down having not existed very long. (What was that other one, Transformers Universe?)

I "played" this for a while just to kill some time, but, man, it represented the worst aspects of mobile gaming.

But, as was noted above, there was some neat art involved. Thankfully, people have archived a lot of it on Websites.

I like the art. thats it. If they ever releases the art in a book or even in card form id buy it.
I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.

I'm kind of torn. On the one hand, I've been playing it for about a year now and have been able to crack the top 1000 a few times (without spending any money on the game). On the other hand, the schedule at my new job is crazy enough I'd been considering quitting the game. :-?

Good riddance to bad rubbish. The artwork is fantastic though. I stopped a couple years ago or so. The Cash grab bummed me out along with the zero reward, as in zero satisfaction. It was an endless loop of gotta pay to play oneupmanship.

If you feel a need to switch to a different DeNA game, I'd recommend Final Fantasy: Record Keeper. Haven't spent a cent on it in real money yet, but it keeps me entertained.

If you guys want to play a Transformers game that is totally 100% free (aside from your time, which doesn't take up that much really) then I suggest Seibertron.coms very own Heavy Metal War Image

No tears shed here, game started out ok but turned to crap as time went on. Unless you played every hour of every day & dropped a butt load of cash you were screwed. Ill miss the artwork but thats it. Battle tactics is no better, dont see it lasting any longer than legends. Not going to have a good mobile TF game until DeNA is kicked out of the loop. On another note what ever happened to G1 awakening? Seems to have just vanished from all the apps stores

It looks like Denagames just announced that they will be sunsetting the Transformers Legends Mobile Device Game, which according to Seibertron.com member Pax XilThalon will happen on 8/15/2015. Let us know how you feel about this by discussing it with your fellow fans in the Engeron Pub forums here.



Please check out DENA's announcement below.

Hey everybody,

It is with heavy hearts, and much displeasure that we must announce some bad news today.

We will be sunsetting the particular game that lead you here on the date specified in the in game popup. Purchases of in-game currencies will be shut off as well. (you will still be able to spend your remaining balance on resources packages and in-app purchases).

We always try everything within our power to keep our games running for our loyal playerbase as long as we possibly can, but unfortunately we are out of options at this point.

We know how hard it is to watch a game you love close its doors for the last time, but we certainly hope that you will consider adventuring with us further, as we move into the future. If so, we would certainly be thrilled to have you try one of our newer games, which can be found here: http://www.denagames.com/
Thank you for being such a loyal passionate player of ours, and we only hope that we can continue entertaining you for years to come with our new games.


Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates!

So.... what's the sad news? :lol: :lol: :lol:



Like the rest of you, I didn't much like Legends. The art was fantastic, but the gameplay was bad and the power creep was ridiculous. Cards that were reserved for the top players as prizes when I started wouldn't have even made it into my deck when I quit, and it's gotten worse since then. What's embarrassing is that I spent over $100 of real money on that game over a period of a few months. I cringe, looking back at that. I don't miss it, I won't be sad when it's gone, and the only thing that's remotely bad about this is that it means some artists will be out of a job.

I have switched over to Battle Tactics, but that game is rapidly going the same way as Legends did. It is, at least, currently more fun to play free than Legends was. We'll see how long that lasts.

Motto: "All I have to be is exceptional."
Weapon: Battle Blades
For a long time Legends has been fighting a losing battle. The power creep couldn't be inflated forever, and there was a real sense of hopelessness among a lot of the player base; there was no point trying to be top 100 because the same people always got it, with the occasional few whales mixing the rankings every now and then.

I sank a bit of real life money in back when the Me Grimlock, King event was first played, and seeing how horrifically outclassed those cards became I avoided the premium space bridge. I succumbed to temptation a few months back to get a Scorponok card, and seeing how quickly even that Legendary Rare was outclassed I disabled in-app purchases and never threw money into the hole again.

Still, I will miss it. It can be fun, and the art is nice to look at. The last few weeks players will apparently be able to see all the old cards in the Cyberdex, so I'll enjoy it while it lasts... and ride it to the second star to the right and straight on until morning.

Really?
I used to toally love Konamis Batman Returns game when it was released on the SNES and it received rave reviews back when it was released too.(obviously around 20 years ago now....).
Not soley Batman but Lego Batman was released before Asylum and that's pretty great too.
But then, why are we comparing mobile device games to console games, I would have though the majority (in my experience) of mobile games are significantly inferior to console games anyway.
The Mobile TF games are utter trash compared to stuff like WFC and FOC

As a huge fan of TRansformers and hardcore mobile gamer, I am glad this thing is dead. Unfortunately, almost every other TF game on mobile isroughly the same:

- geo-locked (hardly any TF games in Japan, would you believe)
- Pay-To-Win (From the very start, it's obvious)
- Lack of tactics (just "pachinko"-style random stuff going on. An actual card-battling game, this is not).
- Nothing to do but grind (just like "Pachinko or any other gambling game)

The main reason this is dead is because there are other similar TF games out there.

Wake me up when there is premium game, with either mouse/hardware controller support, Android TV support, and I'll cough up the money.

In the meantime, collect all of the wonderful art in those games and use them to sell as:

- an art book.
- actual trading/battle cards.
- android live wallpapers/other types of "visual" apps (like clock widgets, etc)

Legends always crashed randomly for me and was never very fun or interesting, other than the cool artwork. Pretty sad when the artwork is the only redeeming feature of a game.

G1 Awakening was pulled from the Apple store, but no reason was given. Probably DeNa didn't want the competition from an already existing, better game and got it pulled. I still have it on my iPod :D

I agree, once DeNa is gone maybe someone will be able to make a non-pay-to-win Transformers mobile game, since that's all DeNa seems to know how to do.
Don't get butthurt when you get called out for expressing closed/small/narrow minded opinions. Educate yourself and form a better opinion.

i say good riddance and about damn time. i played for a while when it first came out, even spent few dollars on it to see how far i could make it. top 1500. after that i realized how much of a cash grab the game was, and only played for the entertainment value. then they came out with updates and added new features you also had to pay for in addition to the already expensive in-app purchases. that was pretty much it for me. with all the money the game required people to dump into it in order to get anything of value, i'm actually surprised that it lasted this long. i'm glad to see people have realized that paying a bill for skill isn't really a thrill.

also, i'm glad the artwork has been cataloged online. cuz that was the only saving grace of an otherwise piece of sh¡t game.
