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

He doesn't one shot kill at higher levels anyway.

They should be prioritising Swoop/Scourge on defense though. That shit is ridiculous.

You could, but it won't get you far. If only you had someone on the news crew that could help you promote your alliance...
(Though in all fairness, ALL Seibertron Alliances should be promoted)

I'd be happy to promote the sister alliance... (who's in control of that?), however, that news crew is unreliable

Darn it. I need a bit of time to figure out that part

In the commercial you make make sure to mention some of the alliance work space hazards such having me spam the chat talking to myself,or getting poisonous cookies, or the BPG or CF just blowing scrap up

Um, are they giving more points per battle than before? The prize requirements here look extremely steep otherwise...to the point of not being worth the effort.

Look at what you could get last week for just 3000 points...

Team event vs solo. ;) This is about on par with the Ultra Magnus/Galvatron event a few weeks ago.

SPEAKING OF WHICH. What's up with this? Light Our Darkest Hour should be Rodimus and Galvy. Nemesis Prime should be his own (non-movie inspired) event, and Magnus's opposite should ideally have been Scourge or Cyclonus. (Though I don't know who another 'con with the Fire Mission ability could be except ANOTHER seeker clone)
I assume it has to do with game balance since Galvy and Magnus are both bulky specialists, but I picture Rodimus as not being as bulky as an Optimus clone, so their pairing is still weird to me.

EDIT:
Hello Cyclonus!

Galvatron and Ultra Magnus were often treated as rivals despite Magnus not being Autobot leader - their both being the City Commander toys of their respective faction, quite a few episodes of the Sunbow cartoon, and it was a pretty big thing in the Marvel comic (and let's not forget who's writing this game). So it's certainly not without precedent and some would even argue it's a more fitting rivalry for Galvatron than Rodimus.

Agreed. I, too, questioned their choices regarding character pairings, but then I remembered that Simon Furman was writing this thing so I stopped myself from asking that any further. :lol:

Though, from the trailer, it appears that they're adding in Hot Spot with Cyclonus likely after this event -- and the two are not analogous in the slightest.

That is insane to nerf Mixmaster. He's my backbone to all my teams.
Without his powerful attack, there goes my team.
