New War League: Prime League
Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars This Weekends Event: Team Up!
Later next week we will be introducing a new war league Prime League above the current highest Cybertron League.
This league is a bit different than the current leagues. The difference is that in every war battle in this league, special effects will apply to the defenders' buildings. Effects that can vary from an increase in HP or DPS to increased speed, or range of the defences.
The League effects will usually change every other month and will be clearly displayed in the war declaration screen and in the Battle/Scouting screens.
We will also be tracking the war wins for Prime league separately, to highlight how alliances are handling this new challenge and who is the best at it. You will be able to see these wins in the Alliance Info Page and also as a new field in the Wars Won leaderboard.
Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars This Weekends Event: Team Up!
We are also planning on having a seasonal tally and highlight which alliances have won the most Prime League wins during that season. These seasons will match the change of League effects and will be clearly communicated in advance before they start. More details on this later.
League Promotion
Since we know that this additional challenge is not for everyone, we will not be automatically promoting alliances to this new League after winning in Cybertron. Instead, the Alliance's officers will get the option to promote to Prime League after winning a war in Cybertron.
Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars This Weekends Event: Team Up!
In the Alliance war screen, officers will now see the above, with information of the Prime League’s effects and the option to Promote or continue fighting in Cybertron. This promotion option will only be available to go into Prime League for now. The rest of the leagues will still use the automatic promotion system based on wins.
The new Prime League will go live next Thursday on the 20/06!
War History
With the newly updated war league, we also wanted to bring a much-requested feature. The ability to check the war history of the alliance.
On the Alliance info screen for each alliance, you will get an extra War History tab. In this tab you can check the wars this alliance has taken part in the last 15 days, with details about the opponents and which league the war took place in.
Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars This Weekends Event: Team Up!
Also if this is your own alliance, you will be able to tap on each war and open the alliance leaderboard for that war with detailed information of member attempts and scores. This feature will be available this Thursday with the content release.
For more details on this new League join us in our Stream this Thursday!

Under investigation
Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars This Weekends Event: Team Up!
Here are the issues reported that we've been investigating:
    Game will sometimes crash after doing a raid attack
      This issue is caused by using the last boost of a certain type in a previous battle and then immediately after that try to scout a base. The boost will still be available in the next battle that you go in and the game will crash you out at the end of that battle, invalidating your attack.
    Slash/Rippersnaper is following OP bots, that are not near them after coming out of their ability
  • Reports on Skylynx & Blitzwing not able to do combo an explosion when a target is still under the effect of Plasma Shroud
      We have seen mention of this issue but would like to get some more reports so that we can investigate.
These are just some examples of the reports that we've received from you and we continue to work hard to improve your experience with the game every day.
We would like to thank you for your time and patience, and if you have any issues to report, please get in touch with us here: support@transformersearthwars.com. Alternatively, you can reach out to us in game via Menu > Community > Contact Support.

In even further news today from Hasbro, we have a new announcement for the recently revealed third part to the Prime Wars trilogy, after Combiner Wars and Titans Return: Power of the Primes! There will be a new fan vote, an event that lets fans decide which Transformers character will become the next leader of Cybertron, led on Transformers.com from January 23, 2017. More information to be found in the press release below!

HASBRO LETS FANS SHAPE THE FUTURE OF THE TRANSFORMERS FRANCHISE WITH THE “POWER OF THE PRIMES” FAN VOTE

The fans can decide which Transformers character will become the next leader of Cybertron!




PAWTUCKET, R.I., December 1, 2016 – Today Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS), announced the “Power of the Primes” fan vote, an upcoming event that will place the fate of Cybertron directly in the hands of Transformers fans around the globe. Beginning on January 23rd, 2017, fans will be able to visit Transformers.com to cast their vote to help determine which character will join the ranks of Optimus Prime, Rodimus Prime and other Cybertronian legends. The fan-voted Prime will be featured in the Transformers Generations toy line and brand’s Prime Wars Trilogy storytelling in 2018.

The Prime serves as leader of Cybertron, wields the immense power of the Matrix of Leadership and holds the fate of the Transformers universe in their hands. This leader is usually chosen directly by the Matrix of Leadership, but the “Power of the Primes” fan vote will put the fans in command and give them the power to light the darkest hour and choose the bot to lead Cybertron into a historic new era.

“Hasbro’s past Transformers fan votes have led to some of our most exciting characters, including Windblade, Victorion and next year’s Trypticon Titan,” said Tom Warner, Senior Vice President of the Transformers franchise at Hasbro. Our “Power of the Primes” fan vote will raise the stakes higher than ever. The Prime sets the tone for all things in the Transformers universe, and we’re excited to see which direction our fans want to take.”

The first round of voting will begin on January 23rd, when fans can visit Transformers.com to choose between three groups of candidates – Honor, Chaos and Order.


Honor: These legendary warriors will lead with honor and carry on the noble legacy of Optimus Prime.

Chaos: These powerful warlords will stop at nothing to become supreme leader of Cybertron, even if it means creating a chaotic world where only the strongest survive.

Order: These commanders vow to leave the Autobot and Decepticon factions in the past and unite Cybertron under a new order.


Four finalists will be chosen by the fans and revealed by Hasbro in late January. Fans can then have the final say by returning to Transformers.com to vote between February 1st and February 4th. The winning Prime will be officially unveiled during New York Toy Fair in February.


For additional information on the Power of the Primes fan vote, please visit TRANSFORMERS.COM or the official TRANSFORMERS Facebook page, Facebook.com/Transformers.

Through a press release from IDW Publishing, as well as the SDCC 2016 panel this afternoon IDW and Hasbro: The Revolution is Now, we've gained our first glimpses into the world of Transformers comics after the Revolution crossover event. The Transformers related points from IDW's press release follow shortly below, but please be forewarned that reading this information may (and almost definitely will for some readers) spoil currently running story arcs in both The Transformers and More Than Meets The Eye!

Transformers News: IDW Announces Post-Revolution Transformers Comics Plans at SDCC 2016

The Revolution ripple effect continues to shake things up as IDW’s Transformers line will see some changes with the introduction of two new ongoing titles: Transformers: Lost Light and the first-ever ongoing Optimus Prime series.


Transformers: Lost Light will continue the fan-favorite adventures told by More Than Meets the Eye writer James Roberts, joined on art by Jack Lawrence (Doctor Who Adventures). Beginning in December, this new series will take Rodimus and the crew of the starship Lost Light into the farthest reaches of the universe, searching for the long-lost Knights of Cybertron.

Next, John Barber, who recently exited his post as IDW’s Hasbro Group Editor, won’t be straying too far from his IDW roots as he tackles Optimus Prime, the first solo series to star the eponymous Autobot. John will be joined by artist Kei Zama (Scarlett Witch). Optimus Prime has declared Earth to be under his protection—and this November, he’ll have to face the consequences.

All those titles will join the currently running Transformers: Till All Are One, Micronauts, and upcoming ROM, which will each continue on, their storylines now converging with this newly established universe as their backdrop.


You can also check out our gallery from the IDW and Hasbro: The Revolution is Now panel featuring cover images and more from both Revolution and the re-titled ongoing Transformers comics series.

Transformers News: IDW Announces Post-Revolution Transformers Comics Plans at SDCC 2016

Other news and notes from this afternoon's panel include:
  • The Transformers: Revolution crossover comic will feature Thundercracker and Buster saving the White House
  • Til All Are One: Revolution to primarily crossover with Micronauts
  • More Than Meets the Eye: Revolution will be co-written by both James Roberts and Nick Roche, reuniting the Last Stand of the Wreckers creative team for the first time since that series. The book will also feature Alex Milne on art.
  • Speaking of Alex Milne, he will be still be handling art duties on Transformers: Lost Light for 'alternating' story arcs (in other words, fans of the book's look need not fear!)
  • Transformers: Lost Light is essentially More Than Meets The Eye Season 3 with a name change.
  • John Barber hinted we may see a certain major villain make a trip to Earth.

Big Names Turn Cybertron "Dark"
Renowned Artist Phil Jimenez Brings His Talents To Transformers!

San Diego, CA (August 21, 2013) - Darkness falls on the AUTOBOTS this November in the comic book event Transformers: Dark Cybertron! This series pushes the TRANSFORMERS characters to their limits, but they'll have the help of some creative superstars on their journey. Joining writer and IDW senior editor John Barber and fan-favorite scribe James Roberts in a top-secret meeting earlier this year, the artistic force of Phil Jimenez helped plan Dark Cybertron from the start! "I've been a fan of the TRANSFORMERS brand since I was 13," said Jimenez, "and this was a fanboy dream come true. The beauty of this story is it plays to the strengths of the characters and to my strengths as a storyteller; epic, world-shattering scale as well as those beautiful character moments that make readers care about a bunch of giant ‘Robots in Disguise.'"

Big Names Turn Cybertron “Dark” - Renowned Artist Phil Jimenez Brings His Talents To Transformers!

The war between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS is over - but when the relentless SHOCKWAVE enacts a scheme millions of years in the making, yesterday's nightmares tear apart today's peace. "OPTIMUS PRIME, RODIMUS, BUMBLEBEE, even STARSCREAM - all these characters believed war was behind them, for better or worse," says Barber. "The big question - other than who will survive - is whose side will the DECEPTICONS be on?"

The twelve-part series starts in Transformers: Dark Cybertron #1, then alternates between the monthly TRANSFORMERS titles Robots In Disguise and More Than Meets The Eye, concluding in a finale issue in March. This is the first time that both Transformers series have crossed over. "It's thrilling to see the two casts crash back into each other's lives," says Roberts. "Fittingly, given the scale of SHOCKWAVE's ambition, this is a massive, galaxy-spanning story - and one that shakes everything up."

Co-written by Roberts and Barber, superstar artist Phil Jimenez provides layouts and covers for issue one, and variant covers for the whole series - as well as doing the art for the GENERATIONS action figure releases from Hasbro and planning the event from day one! Jimenez is joined by a who's-who of Transformers artists, including Robots in Disguise series artist Andrew Griffith, who provides finished art on the lead-off issue. According to Jimenez, "the script for #1 was probably one of the best I've worked from in years. Totally awesome stuff - I just hope people don't mind me butting in and adding my own two cents (or three) to this super cool universe. I think it all worked out pretty seamlessly, actually!"

This is an exciting time to be a fan of Transformers, with multiple series from IDW, fantastic toys and more from Hasbro. In that spirit, and in an unprecedented publishing move, Dark Cybertron comic books will be included in select GENERATIONS action figure releases from Hasbro, following their initial release from IDW. This is the first time that an entire mega-event has been distributed in such a way. "TRANSFORMERS fans are some of the most loyal and dedicated - but many of them have never seen our comics," says Barber. "Dark Cybertron will introduce these fans to the world of comics - and we can't wait to bring these new readers into the fold."
