When he's walking around the base, the jet on his back is completely extended out. Like, the tailfin's hanging off him and everything; and the cockpit is left as if untransformed on the toy. It fixes itself once he transforms to jet mode and transforms out of it, but it's still odd lol.

Yah I think it's funny :lol:
But yah I have it too

I freed up two slots earlier, but two other people pounced on them. Sorry guys.

That's a good idea about starting up a second one though. I'll see how things are after the weekend as I'm going to push people to sign up and join in here.

I've changed the Alliance setting from open to requiring approval. This will help ensure you guys get to join our Alliance. Like I said, post your in-game names so I know it's you. You might have to keep checking back daily as I free up some slots.

Has anyone figured out exactly what the shield special ability does, or how best to use it? I have Jumpstream, who has that ability. I'm sure some other characters have it too.
Does it just protect the user while attacking a target, or does it extend out to others around them too?

A little bit of both. It blocks the path and protects anyone inside.

It will absorb any weapon that hits it. I'll need to check but the shield bearer may still take a % of damage.

This is how I use the ability: I send her in to block attacks and start attacking the weapon. Sometimes I can use the shield to block multiple weapons at once and/or protect anyone behind her.

My Jumpstream is a little weak so I usually wait until I've already attacked the weapon so she can destroy it. More often than not I'm using it to just buy time.

She is in my D team and it helps to have a little bit of protection for those weaker bots.

EDIT: it only blocks 80% of damage but I've found in use it does stop the projectile and other bots won't get hit unless it's an area of affect type weapon.

It also pulls agro, which means all nearby weapons with target Jumpstream. A good way to distract weapons from attacking other bots or even better, some that are about to fall.

There's also the reflective shield which reflects attacks back at the attacker.

Anyone else having trouble with the last stage of the Decepticon campaign Power Play? No clue how to deal with Ironhide and the Beam Laser.

I wonder if there is an Autobot that has the same skill. I've seen a few abilities that do not have a counterpart.

Kickback has those glass grenades (or what ever they are called) and so far I have yet to find a 'bot with that skill.

Mirage has EMP cluster missiles, which I didn't see a 100% same ability on the 'con side - Kickback is close but not the same.

I think it's kinda fun to give each side some unique stuff. Makes picking one over the other more than just personal preference. I have heard from the devs that they want to allow you to have one of each team per account. That would be fun and I'd love to take myself on ;)^

I never got that far when I had a 'con team, but I'll give some generic advice. Attack rival player and level up your team. Don't forget to level up their abilities as well, that can make a huge difference for some of them. Getting a few bots up to ability lvl 3 doesn't take a whole lot of resources - lvl 4 is a pretty major hit.

Where do you get the sparks to level up abilities though? So far I've only gotten sparks from getting a duplicate Tantrum on the space bridge.

There are three ways to get sparks that I'm aware of.

1. random reward for the free crystals

2. dupe bots generate sparks and 2 or 3 star shards

3. winning alliance wars

There is a forth way, some of the daily bundles for purchase have sparks included.

Has anyone else found buying premium crystals next to useless after you get all the 2star formers?

Hey all, I'm looking to (re-)join the Seibertron Decepticon alliance. My in-game name is That Bot (Shocking!). I was in the beta alliance but clearly ZERO of that data is carrying over.

Well I'm a little annoyed. Apparently I never pre-registered for the game, even though I thought I did. I contacted customer support and they said they couldn't find my email address in the queue. Guess I'm missing out on..... who was the Decepticon pre-reg character?

Also, I kind of already knew this from the beta, but having the full game really cements that Slipstream's ability sucks. On paper, spread damage to surrounding buildings if the targeted building is destroyed within 15 seconds sounds good. But in practice, the buildings you usually want your seekers to target are more than 15 seconds away from destruction by your ground-based bots, but pose imminent risk. Mortars and beam lasers mostly. Right now I only have room for 4 bots in my team, so only 1 seeker makes the cut, and slipstream is far from my first pick.

See, you've already identified the problem with Slipstream, you need that secondary bot to trigger the mass destruction.

When it works, it works REALLY well.

Cary and I have discussed this and you're on the right track, you need Starscream, Blast Off, Brawl or Breakdown. All four can attack over a distance. But they also need to be strong enough to destroy a building in one go. If they can't, you'll have to use Kickback as well with his glass ability to soften things up.

Sounds like a lot of attacks to be using up? They add up to cost about the same as an orbital strike from Mixmaster or Jazz, and I think Slipstreams bomb may even do damage in a wider area.
