Alliance membership isn't a requirement (copy and paste, so I didn't miss it) so I'm guessing it's solo.

300 4-star shards and 450 3-star shards in total... and I might be able to get them all. Absolute belter.

Only 3k points to max? Not bad, not bad. I should be able to win this.

Is it only 1 prestige level? Or are there multiple prestiges?

Edit: never mind, missed the prestige none spot.

Oh, and individual event! Yeah! I need a weekend off after the last one.

Could use the weekend off at least. :P

I was watching a video of the Botcon panel this year, which is odd because I thought they prohibited video recording at these but it doesn't have any signs of being illicitly recorded, which then makes me wonder why Seibertron doesn't have one, but I digress. In the coverage they brought up the then-upcoming release of Earth Wars and mentioned that it falls "squarely" in their Prime Wars Trilogy. This strikes me as an odd thing to say since the game's plot is minimal. Perhaps, since it seems to be a slow build to combiners, this comprises the Combiner Wars portion of the story that we never really saw? I know we had the IDW run, much like we're getting an IDW Titans Return arc now, but the toy fiction that Hasbro likes to talk about differs from these, and TR got a little comic that explains the basic scenario which is more than CW ever got. I'm choosing to ignore the Machinima series because it's kind of awful and potentially contradictory to this game's story, if you can call it that, as well.

I may be reading too much into this, since Hasbro seems to always talk like they're telling a grand story through their toylines and mobile games, which simply hasn't been true for Legends, Earth Wars, or especially Battle Tactics which never even pretended to have a story. But I dunno, I want somebody at Hasbro to wake up and say "Maybe we're emphasizing the wrong aspect of this, why don't we just sell that the game is a fun romp with Transformers characters?" I still laugh at this gem from NYCC last year.

Oh, in other news, I got Galvatron to level 25 and was treated to another dialog. THINGS ARE DEFINITELY MAYBE HAPPENING FOR SURE I THINK.

I mean according to Hasbro and them prodding High Moon about it the WFC/FOC games are in the Aligned/Uniend continuity and are prequels to like Transformers Prime and RiD 2015 even though there are a lot of differences (and some are irreconcilable). I honestly feel Hasbro's approach to have everything being relevant but in a different approximation/sub-universe of an overarching continuity is probably the best way to deal with contradictions and is even a bit friendly to head canons in some ways too.

Hasbro: IT'S ALL CONNECTED!
Fans: But that doesn't make sense, what about-
Hasbro: ALL CONNECTED!!!!!!

Exactly. Just be thankful its not the Jurassic Park continuity, Aliens/Predator/Prometheus, or even Terminator as that one is beyond all recognition at this point. :P

If you want to have a connected universe story, you need to have a person with two jobs; Supervising writers so they're all on the same page and smacking directors and producers when they go "Yes, but wouldn't -" and just smack them. Preferably with a large book.

No, no...a baseball bat.

And on an unrelated note.

Just a friendly reminder (as if Cons do anything that anyone sane consider friendly) that Seibertron Deception Alliance is recruiting, we have spaces that need filled with good, dedicated players who find the word craptastic as funny as I do. And an HQ of at least 10.. and upgrading stuff because Dizz has spreadsheets. You do NOT want him consulting his spreadsheet about your upgrades.

Seibertron II will take those below HQ 10, but Dizz has spreadsheets for there too (yes, we've spent some time teasing Dizz about his spreadsheets)

We also prefer to use Line instead of the ingame chat (because ingame chat is craptastic). My LineID is in my sig, but just for ease. . It's ctrlfrequency

I would suggest a cutting tool like a sword for good measure. Maybe just a blast from a fusion cannon for even better measure. "What Would Megatron Do?" after all.

Spreadsheets are useful for stuff! That's in defense of Dizz. I used to use them for budgeting/adult stuff to a point. I found that they're like the word processing multi-tool pocket knife of sorts. :P

Okay Decepticons, we'd like to have an Alliance meeting, using Line, cause character limits are craptastic.

Right now we're tentively looking at Saturday afternoon (Saturday evening for those in Europe, middle of the freaking night elsewhere), depending on schedules.

You will be there or DEATH!!!!

(Edited because King Kuuga accused me.of being too nice, now I must go shoot him)

That would make you loose what little thread of sanity you are holding on to.

That reminds me... I need to peek in on that war and see who's not playing with the Bots

There will also be cake, except when its not a lie. I may make this a test involving cake though, or harmful neurotoxin. For science. :D

Balancing Update
Image
COMING SOON
Autobot Jazz & Mixmaster - These bots will have equal stats. This means more damage for Autobot Jazz (but less health) and less damage for Mixmaster (but more health). Overall, this change is not large and will be most visible at the high-end spectrum of the game (where the imbalance was greatest), and helps us make the game more balanced AND more fair for all players across both factions.

The situation involving these bots was neither fair nor balanced. A high-level Mixmaster was able to ‘one-shot’ most of the defenses including Mortars, which was never the intention and more of an accidental overlook on my (Game Designer Adam’s) part. The gap between Mixmaster and Autobot Jazz was quite significant since one received damage boost at the cost of health (Mixmaster) while the other was more resilient at the cost of damage (Autobot Jazz). Given that these bots utilize one of the most powerful abilities in the game, the imbalance grew to uncomfortable scale and had to be addressed.

Abilities currently under investigation:
In order to give you a heads-up and be a bit more transparent, we’d like to share a list of changes that we’re currently looking into. These changes are based on player feedback as well as game data and are mostly buffs to abilities that are not there yet, or small tweaks to incredibly effective (and potentially abusive) strategies that cannibalize other bots’ utility.

There are no timings nor exact details for these yet, and as always we would like to hear your feedback!

• Pleasant surprise to Huffer owners (don’t want to spoil it!).
• Defense Hack range increase.
• Further Cluster Strike improvements.
• Mirage/Breakdown EMP buff - radius/duration increase being probable.
• Line Barrage buff.
• Strafe/Scourge on defense (when used in the Outpost) - possibly will deal reduced damage to enemy bots (currently they are more problematic to attackers than anticipated).
• Divebomb/Windblade ability damage may be slightly reduced and/or ability pricing on repeated use may be increased.
• Range of Ultra Magnus/Galvatron ability (possible small increase).
• Bombing Run buff.
