About Cyclonus:


Faction: Decepticon

Class: Tactician

Resurrected by the same dark energies as his master Galvatron, Cyclonus leads a mighty armada provided by Unicron himself. Loyal, patient, and skilled, Cyclonus is ultimately the counterbalance to Galvatron’s chaotic rule.

Stats and Abilities:

Health: 1907
Attack: 149
Max Rating: 544

3-Star:

Health: 4682
Attack: 315
Max Rating: 1294

4-Star:

Health: 12169
Attack: 818
Max Rating: 3520

Basic Abilities: Dark Energy, Dark Field, Discipline

Gain a Bar of Power
- Each bar of power grant’s Cyclonus a Dark Energy Charge, increasing
Attack Rating by 22~30% for 6 seconds.

Dark Field
- When Cyclonus gains Dark Energy or completes a full Melee Combo with Dark Energy active, his Dark Field pulses.
- The Dark Field inflicts Dark Burn, dealing 20% of Attack as instant Energy Damage and has a 60~76% chance to Nullify an enemy buff. If the opponent is Unstoppable this chance increases to 100%.
- If an opponent with an Unstoppable buff Dashes toward Cyclonus, he instantly gains Dark Energy, Nullifies the Unstoppable buff, and inflicts Stun for 1.5 seconds.

Discipline

- After being struck 5 times by Melee Attacks, Cyclonus gains a 18~28% Physical Resistance Buff for 7~9 seconds.
- After landing 6 Ranged Attacks, Cyclonus gains a Ranged Bonus, increasing damage from Ranged Attacks by 15~25% and Projectile Speed for 5~7 seconds.
- After landing 10 Melee Attacks, Cyclonus gains a Melee Bonus, increasing damage from Melee Attacks by 15~25% for 5~7 seconds.

Signature Ability – Dark Servitude

Pledging loyalty to Unicron has imbued Cyclonus with unimaginable power.

Strong Match-ups:

Motormaster
- Motormaster’s Unstoppable will become a disadvantage when fighting against Cyclonus and his Dark Field.

Optimus Prime (MV1)
- Cyclonus’ sword will pierce even the toughest armor, stopping the Autobot leader from making his epic last stand.

Weak Match-ups:

Galvatron
- The master of chaos, Galvatron, will be able to deal most of his damage at range, avoiding the Dark Field. It is also important to note that Galvatron’s Unstoppable cannot be Nullified.

Shockwave
- Shockwave can ensure that Cyclonus never reaches a bar of power to gain his Dark Energy.

Recommended Modules for Cyclonus:

Robot Resources
- Robot Resources will push Cyclonus to gain Dark Energy faster.

Harm Accelerator
- Not taking damage from Cyclonus will be a rare occurrence, add another constant tick of damage and watch the opponent wilt.

Love that the promo pic is basically a thumbnail for a Thew video.

Also, nullifying Unstoppable is a good deal, but do you really run into it outside of Demo bots, who Cyclonus is weak to anyhow? Tantrum's the only non-Demo bot I can think of off the top of my head who uses it regularly.

Cyclonus seems great against MotorMaster. If you don't mind me mentioning, I have a video of them fighting.

BOT INTEL REPORT – MEGATRONUS
Add Megatronus to your ultimate squad in October 4th at 10AM PDT!
ABOUT MEGATRONUS:
Faction: Decepticon

Class: Demolitions

One of the Thirteen Primes created by Primus himself to defeat Unicron, Megatronus is a being of unparalleled strength. His quest for greater power led him to betray his fellow Primes, resulting in a millennia of banishment. That banishment has ended, and his presence again looms large through the cosmos.

STATS AND ABILITIES:
2-Star:

Health: 2,012
Attack: 162
Max Rating: 609

4-Star:

Health: 12,839
Attack: 884
Max Rating: 3,948

BASIC ABILITIES: RELIC OF FURY, RELIC OF PRESERVATION, POWER STEAL, LIFE STEAL
Passive

Now in the possession of powerful Relics, Megatronus does not generate power as normal, he instead passively generates 1.2% of Max Power every second.
Megatronus begins the fight with the Relic of Fury active, each time he gains a Bar of Power he alternates between the Relic of Fury and the Relic of Preservation.
Relic of Fury

The Relic of Fury grants 30~50% Attack Rating and reduces the opponent’s Block Proficiency by 20%.
Relic of Preservation

The Relic of Preservation grants 40~50% Damage Resistance and limits the amount of damage Megatronus can receive in a single blow to 20% of his max Health.
Relic of Immortality

Once per fight, when Megatronus hits 10% health he activates the Matrix of Immortality in addition to his other Relics for 10 seconds. While the Relic is active Megatronus is Indestructible and immune to all damage. This ability will not activate if Megatronus begins the fight with 10% Health or less.
Last Hit of a Light or Medium Combo

+40% Critical Chance.
Heavy Attack

100% chance to apply Dark Burn, dealing 40% of Attack as instant Energy Damage.

SIGNATURE ABILITY – RELIC OF OBEDIENCE
The Relic of Obedience weakens enemy abilities and may completely prevent them from activating.

When Filling a Power Bar

When Megatronus gains a Bar of Power, he has a 15~65% chance to activate the Relic of Obedience, preventing opponents from activating Buffs or Debuffs for 8 seconds. Additionally, when the Relic is not active, Buffs and Debuffs the opponent activates are 20% weaker.

SPECIAL ATTACKS:
Special 1 – Grip of Power

Infinite power to fuel infinite wrath.

60% chance Megatronus applies a 30% Armor Break for 8 seconds.
If the Relic of Fury is active, 100% chance to Steal 20~30% of the opponent’s Current Power.
Special 2 – Beyond Measure

All fall before his might.

The last hit of this attack is Unblockable and has a 30% chance to Stun the opponent for 3 seconds.
If the Relic of Preservation is active, 100% chance to Steal Life from the opponent equal to 6~15% of Max Health.
Special 3 – Truly Prime

Your final days are at hand.

100% Chance to apply Dark Burn, dealing 200% of Attack as instant Energy Damage.
If the Relic of Fury is active, 50~64% chance to Steal 20~30% of the opponent’s Current Power.
If the Relic of Preservation is active, 50~64% chance to Steal Life from the opponent equal to 6~15% of Max Health.

SYNERGY BONUSES:
Mutual – Allies – Cyclonus, Galvatron
+2~8% Armor
Mutual – Enemies – Optimus Prime
+2~8% Attack
Outgoing – The Fallen – Megatron, Megatron (RotF)
All Decepticons on your team gain +2~5% Armor while fighting Decepticons and +5~20% Power Rate while fighting Autobots.

STRONG MATCH-UPS:
Everyone – There is no bot that Megatronus cannot overpower.
Megatron – Megatron will find his namesake needs no buffs to be formidable.
Optimus Prime – If Optimus is relying on help from his Chief Medical Officer, the Relic of Obedience will put a stop to that notion.

WEAK MATCH-UPS:
No One – No one stands as a serious challenger to him that is the embodiment of power.
Rhinox – Rhinox’s Power Lock will keep this mighty Decepticon from switching modes.
Shockwave – Repair Block and Power Drain will help keep this Prime from tapping into his true power.

RECOMMENDED MODULES FOR MEGATRONUS:
Robot Resource – One cannot even fathom the carnage Megatronus could inflict with a second source of power.
Prime Module – The Prime Module will help this mad god stay in the fight longer and increase his stats to match any higher level contender.

So we have a Dreawave character loosely based off/an evil counterpart to the Last Autobot who ended up the mthical predecessor to Decepticons and gained an egyptian theme from a Live Action movie now having a Machinima based design...with the almode of Movie Megatron. Anyone else really amused and equally weirded out when he started off as this?

Image
At this point is he even still technically 'The Fallen'? Because I have the impression Hasbro tried to (and in a way, suceeded) in erasing the original conception first by hijacking the name and history of the character before giving his role in the franchise to something of their own making. At this point, Megatronus and The Fallen may as well be distinct entities within the franchise. >:oP

"This version of Megatron is based on his Machinima Power of the Primes body, and features a new never-before-seen Jet mode."

Just a minor correction to this description... he's not a version of Megatron. He's an entirely different character. Like it also states in his bio he is "One of the Thirteen Primes".

Thanks to a heads up from Seibertron user Nathaniel Prime, Kabam Studios has added a new fighter to their Transformers: Forged to Fight game, and it's none other than Beast Wars Scorponok. Here, he sports a new design, similar to the rest of the Beats Wars Forged to Fight crew. Check out the full Bot Intel Report here or below, and tell us your thoughts in the Pub forums below!

BOT INTEL REPORT – SCORPONOK
Add Scorponok to your ultimate squad November 1st at 10AM PDT
About Scorponok:


Faction: Predacon

Class: Warrior

Scorponok’s seemingly slow wit contrasts sharply with his cunning and inventive nature. Fiercely loyal to his commander Megatron, Scorponok is one of the few Predacon subordinates that harbors no desire to usurp the lizard king.

STATS AND ABILITIES:
3-Star:

Health: 4682
Attack: 312
Max Rating: 1309
4-Star:

Health: 12169
Attack: 810
Max Rating: 3523
5-Star:

Health: 29543
Attack: 1966
Max Rating: 8551

BASIC ABILITIES: DAZED, VENOM BACKFIRE, BLEED
When filling a bar of Power

Gains a Venom charge, granting +20% Attack per charge.
Heavy Attack

Scorponok’s poisonous cyber-strikes converts each Venom Charge into a 12 second Backfire Debuff on the opponent.
Venom Backfire

When opponents activate a Special Attack, Backfire is consumed and inflicts 91.8~140% Attack as Shock damage per charge.
If the opponent does not use a Special Attack and 2 Backfire charges expire simultaneously, the opponent is also Stunned for 3 seconds.
If 3 or more Backfire charges expires simultaneously, the opponent takes Shock Damage equal to 500% of Attack Rating over 4 seconds.
Critical Melee Attacks

30~40% chance to Bleed, dealing 40~60% of Attack over 4 seconds.

SIGNATURE ABILITY: REGENERATIVE TOXIN
Fueled by Scorponok’s Venom Charges, Scorponok’s hidden robotic enhancements enable him to Repair.

When Struck:

Fueled by Scorponok’s Venom Charges, Scorponok’s hidden robotic enhancements enable him to passively Repair 30~ 65% of the damage taken from non-Special Attacks.
SPECIAL ATTACKS:
Special 1 – Daze and Destroy

The Cyber Bee’s toxin viciously attacks the enemy’s neural pathways.

Scorponok’s robotic bee Dazes the opponent, causing their Basic Ranged Attacks to Miss 60% of the time and Ranged Special Attacks to Miss 100% of the time for 7~ 9 seconds.
Special 2 – Tunneling Terror

Scorponok is adept at forcing the element of surprise.

Converts each Venom Charge into a 12 second Backfire Debuff on the opponent.
Special 3 – Predacon Persecution

There is no stopping the primal calamity that is Scorponok.

Scorponok’s robotic bee Dazes the opponent, causing their Basic Ranged Attacks to Miss 60% of the time and Ranged Special Attacks to Miss 100% of the time for 16~ 24 seconds.

SYNERGY BONUSES:
Mutual – Allies – Waspinator

+2~8% Armor
Mutual – Enemies – Optimus Primal, Rhinox, Cheetor, Dinobot

+2~8% Attack Rating
Mutual – Weaponsmith – Hound, Ramjet

+4~15% chance for Heavy Attacks to be a Critical Hit.

STRONG MATCH-UPS:
Megatronus

The Fallen will be unable to land the first hit of his Special Attacks, making his wrath considerably easier to avoid.
Prowl

Prowl’s shotgun is much less threatening while he is Dazed and confused.

WEAK MATCH-UPS:
Grimlock

With very few Ranged Special Attacks and the ability to Purify Bleeds, this Predacon will fear a different kind of Dinobot.
Shockwave

Shockwave’s ability to Heal Block will put a stop to Scorponok’s Regenerative capabilities.

RECOMMENDED MODULES FOR SCORPONOK:
Repair Module

This Mod will allow Scorponok to out heal his opponent’s damage output.
Transwarp Cell

This mode will encourage the slippery Scorpion to assault his hapless opponents with frequent, hard to dodge, heavy attacks.
