Transformers News: Kabam Transformers: Forged to Fight Adds Insecticon Kickback


BOT INTEL REPORT – KICKBACK
Add Kickback to your ultimate squad March 15th at 10AM PDT!
About Kickback:

Faction: Decepticon

Class: Scout

Intelligent and deceptively persuasive, Kickback’s power to manipulate minds is only ever a ploy to gain access to the information or resources he seeks. Like all Insecticons, Kickback feels the urge to continuously consume all material around him and is capable of chewing through even the toughest Cybertronian metal.
Stats and Abilities:

2-Star:

Health: 1470
Attack: 179
Max Rating: 559

3-Star:

Health: 3608
Attack: 379
Max Rating: 1294

4-Star:

Health: 9378
Attack: 984
Max Rating: 3515

Basic Abilities: Power Leak, Evade, Consume

Critical Hits

60% chance to inflict Power Leak, draining 4.8~9.6% of an opponent’s power over 10 seconds.
Kicking attacks have +30% Critical Rating.

Power Leaking Opponents

Kickback’s Melee hits against Power Leaking opponents have +50% Power Rate.

Opponent Avoids a Dash Attack:

30~38% chance to Evade Melee Attacks for 2 seconds.

Heavy Attacks

When Kickback transforms he has a 100% chance to Consume all Shock, Power Drain, Power Lock, and Power Rate Debuffs on himself and generate 1~5% of his Max Power over 2 seconds for each debuff removed.
When Kickback lands a Heavy Attack he has a 100% chance to Consume all Power Rate and Power Gain Buffs from the opponent and generate 1~5% of Max Power over 2 second for each buff removed.

Signature Ability – T-Cog Sabotage

Kickback’s attacks can be modified to infect his opponent with T-Clog. This cyber virus attacks the bot’s sensitive electronics that control their ability to Transform.

Heavy Attacks

35~70% chance to infect an opponent with T-Clog, lowering the opponent’s power rate by -30% for 10 seconds. If the infected bot uses a Heavy Attack, T-Clog is removed and their Transformation fails, Stunning them for 2 seconds.

Special Attacks:

Special 1 – Shock in the Wounds

Kickback uses a shocking blast to turn insult to injury.

100% chance to Inflict Shock for each Power Leak on the opponent, dealing 40% of Attack over 5 seconds.

Special 2 – Lacerate

Those wings aren’t just for looks.

100% Chance to gain a Critical Rate Buff, increasing Critical Rating by 30% for 8 seconds.
100% chance each Critical Hit of Kickbacks Wing Blades to inflict Power Leak, draining 4.8~9.6% of an opponent’s power over 10 seconds.

Special 3 – Need to Feed

Hope? Kickback ate that first.

100% chance each Critical Hit to inflict Power Leak, draining 4.8~9.6% of an opponent’s power over 10 seconds.
For each Power Leak on the opponent Kickback Repairs 3% of his Max Health over 5 seconds.

Synergy Bonuses:

Mutual – Allies – Soundwave, Bludgeon

+2~8% Armor.

Mutual – Enemies – Grimlock, Prowl

+2~8% Attack.

Mutual – Enforcers – Motormaster, Ramjet

Debuffs last 20~40% longer and cannot be Purified.

Strong Match-ups:

Shockwave – Shockwave would find this matchup to be illogical as his Shock charges will be quickly consumed by this voracious Insecticon.
Megatron (Revenge of the Fallen) – Once Megatron has been infected with T-Clog his proclivity to fire off Heavy Attacks while enraged could leave him Stunned and vulnerable.

Weak Match-ups:

Hound (The Last Knight) – Hound’s ability to inflict Critical Rate Down with his Special Attack 1 will leave Kickback unable to inflict Power Leak with his basic hits.
Optimus Primal – Primal will completely negate Critical Hits, disabling much of Kickback’s ability set that revolves around Critical Hits.

Recommended Modules for Kickback:

Scout’s Sentry – Increasing Kickback’s Critical Rate and ability to Evade will ultimately help him survive while dishing out those potent Critical Hits.
Transwarp Cell – Ensuring Kickback routinely slams into his opponent with Heavy Attacks will allow him to take great advantage of his Consume and Signature abilities.

As we reported back before the end of the year (see the story here), Activision Transformers videogames War For Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron, Devastation, and Rise of the Dark Spark have been removed from multiple platform stores, such as Steam, XBox, and PlayStation.

Thanks to fellow Seibetronian Sunstar, we have now confirmation of the actual reason for the removal of the games, and it is exactly what numerous readers and players have suggested: the contract between Hasbro and Activision has expired. IGN has more information on the story, as you can read below, and you can follow this link for a longer piece hammering the point.

Hasbro confirmed to IGN its contract with Activision to publish Transformers games has expired. However, Hasbro is not at this time discussing what, if any, plans it might have for Transformers games on PC and consoles in the future. Multiple mobile games, including Transformers: Forged to Fight, are still ongoing, however.

IGN has reached out to Activision for more details about the contract expiration and will update this story should they respond.

Some unfortunate news has been floating around the interwebs today regarding the Activision Transformers video games War For Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron, Devastation, and Rise of the Dark Spark. It seems that all of these titles have been removed from both the Steam store and the Play Station store. It's currently up to speculation as to why, and if they will return to the stores any time soon. Reports also indicate that the DLCs for the various games are also unavailable, but the games are available for purchase and download on both the XBox and Nintendo stores.

Obviously, physical copies are still available and installable.

If there are any updates to this story, (which there most likely will be), you'll hear about it here, on Seibertron.com!

New Bots Preview

In an effort to increase VIP visibility into the processes of our development team, we would like to give you a sneak peak of two upcoming characters we're excited to be bringing to Transformers: Earth Wars. These characters are currently being created and designed by the art team, so this is the first time that they are being shown to players.  

KUP 


Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game
"Kup has been there, done that, got the T-shirt. There's almost nothing this veteran warhorse hasn't seen or experienced. Gruff and grizzled, Kup is forever waxing nostalgic about this battle or that narrow escape. Even if only half of his stories are true, it's still a packed life he's lived.  One thing's for sure - he's a born survivor."

Kup is an iconic character, and there have been a number of Kup toys released over the years. However, the one form that resonated with us the most was the classic G1 design from the 1986 animated movie. Who can forget Kup’s war stories of petro rabbits and other galactic adventures? We used the movie reference as a basis for the moodboards we compiled to get a feel for the character.
 

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game


We originally made Kup’s legs rounded to match his appearance in the movie, but unfortunately this made him look awkward in vehicle mode, so we switched to a classic design.
We pay close attention to the polygon count when modelling a character. If we exceed a particular number of polygons we may run into performance issues when the character is added to the game. Using lots of curves and rounded edges quickly increases the polygon count.
 

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game


When texturing characters, we often exaggerate particular colours and features. Given the small scale at which bots are shown during battle, this helps keep them distinctive and readable. In this example, we’ve accentuated the yellow details on Kup’s head and legs.

  HUN-GURRR

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game

"Hun-Gurrr is a creature of appetites. One he fulfills by stuffing his twin mouths with monstrous amounts of energy, raw materials, and fallen Autobots. The other - his love of battle - he sates through wanton destruction and mayhem.As leader of the Terrorcons, he makes an adept military commander, though he tends to issue orders with a full mouth, making him difficult to understand." Though Hun-Gurrr is a lesser known Transformers character and there have been fewer toys based on him, he certainly has a distinct and impressive countenance.
 

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game


With Hun-Gurrr's bot form, it was important to keep the colour distribution close to the original cartoon and toy design so that that he was easily recognizable. When it came to the Alt form, we felt that there were some areas in the design that we could push to heighten his ferocious appearance. The two heads were enlarged, giving us more room for lots of pointy teeth. The spikes down the neck and spine were accentuated to give sharper impact to his silhouette. To finish his look we gave him some claws reminiscent of a dragon.

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game

Next week, we’ll take a more detailed look at how we go about animating these characters and creating their transformation sequences.
