I mean, wasn't everything in this game already G1-esque? Like, since it was based off the toy designs of a G1-based toyline, and all, it's kind of redundant to have this event in the first place.

Also, Burn is super right. It had become a chore to spend all my time on this thing, especially on my already busy weekends. Worse yet? Some people have a very large, expendable income so even if I used all my power cells perfectly and worked the cooldowns perfectly, I wouldn't even make a dent in some of the higher performers. It kind of felt like ramming my forehead into a wall for seventy two hours and getting nothing but useless two star novelties for it.

I stopped playing some months ago cos out of the two transformers mobile games on my phone i only really wanted to have one of them and Forged to Fight has the movie bots I so much prefer over G1(esque) so making it even more G1 isn't gonna pull me back to it. Plus i far prefer a much closer view of robots smashing up each other so FtF is more my thing in other ways.

Exactly this. And Alliances were getting more and more competitive so you either spent big (and then only ended up with a 3*) or go away. Loyalty meant nothing to those with Trust Funds.

Good old Earth Wars. I got an email from them on the two year anniversary about free things, apparently I had removed the game from my device. I re-downloaded, and it was my temporary profile I set up after re-loading the game when the beta ended. Contacted customer support, they didn't get back to me until after the free stuff expired. So I have the correct profile again, just missed out on the goodies.

I forgot how much funds people threw in to this game. I couldn't keep up at all with Seibertron's team that I was on with Cobotron and carytheone. They left before I did, but ultimately I just said "So long, and thanks for all the fish."

It was fun at the beginning building a base and stuff, but unlike Sim City or The Simpsons: Tapped Out you can't just go on forever without throwing in a bunch of money.

The new event started. Turns out this G1 chip is basically a toonshader. It does not change the character modelwhen applied. It only gives it a toonshader. But enough about that.

I logged back in and there is G1 bgm playing instead of the Earth Wars bgm. Having a nostalgia trip atm.

I feel less annoyed now about the two chips I got being bots I don't have. Sigh.

I may be doing something wrong as you're the second person I've seen mention the different music - mine still has the same music as when I started playing three weeks ago!

New Transformers Characters SENTIUS MAGNUS and SENTIUS MALUS Roll Out in TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS September 14

Learn More During Livestream with Transformers Writer Simon Furman on September 6, 2018

On September 14th, Hasbro Inc. will add two new characters to the Transformers universe; say hello to the SENTIUS TWINS, SENTIUS MAGNUS and SENTIUS MALUS. Both characters will make their debut in TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS, the award-winning combat strategy mobile game available for free from Space Ape Games and Backflip Studios on the App Store and Google Play.

In the early days of Cybertron, the home world of the Transformers bots, SENTIUS NOBILIUS served as an honorable guardian of the relics of the PRIMES, the gods of the Transformers universe. To do this task he was given a sword of legendary power, the SWORD OF BALANCE, a blade with the power of creation and destruction. He was betrayed by one of the PRIMES, who, using his own sword against him, split his spark in two. This destroyed SENTIUS NOBILIUS, but created two new sibling warriors: SENTIUS MAGNUS, the guardian of light, and SENTIUS MALUS, the guardian of darkness. Each of these bots now carries one half of the sword, which was split. SENTIUS MAGNUS now fights for the Autobots, and SENTIUS MALUS for the Decepticons. Fans can get a sneak-peek at both characters by checking out today’s announcement trailer.



Transformers writer Simon Furman will be doing a livestream with Space Ape Games developers on Thursday, September 6 at 4:00 p.m. UTC, diving into the story behind the SENTIUS TWINS and providing a look at the characters and game update. Fans can tune in to the livestream by visiting: twitch.tv/transformersearthwars.

TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS is a real-time combat strategy game that surpassed 10 million downloads within its first year. The game pairs authentic Transformers storytelling with fast-paced gameplay, beautiful 3D animation and hundreds of iconic characters with diverse strengths and abilities. Download TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS for free on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and on Google Play for Android devices.

WHEW! Not the Bayniverse Twins.

Instead, it's...Roulette and Shadow Striker as male samurai who symbolize yin and yang. Sort of.

Sure, why not.

Great, we got DBZ Piccolo :lol:
I've had enough of samurai-themed Tfs, they're just too full of clichés.

are they not just variations of IDW Drift?

Also.. a hero and a villain who each own one half of a sword. Wasn't that the Power Sword thing in the original He-Man mini-comics you got with the figures (before the cartoon ignored all that)

While the backstory is a little silly, I'm definitely down for more new blood in the franchise. Despite the overt samurai theme, their crazy tank-walker alt-modes could fit into the new WfC lines... maybe we'll get toys of them? Even if you don't like their particular backstory, they could easily be repurposed as cybertronian-mode Drift and Deadlock, or generic Circle of Light members. :-?

Did they just re-use the Cyberverse Shockwave mold for both of these?

Maybe new characters for SIEGE :-?
A Leader class figure called SENTIUS NOBILIUS that can split into two Voyager class sized figures.

But their transformation and alt modes remind me pretty much of the new Cyberverse SHOCKWAVEs.

So it's robot Hanzo and robot-ier Genji. And man, I too am getting tired of Samurai Transformers: it was cool when Bludgeon did it blatantly and Dinobot did way more subtly but after Windblade and Drift it seems like it's the cliche 'new cool kid we're supposed to like' gimmick. >:oP

That said, one of them has a bow which is a weapon which doesn't get enough love as a TF weapon, so I'd be fine with them getting figures in Siege, especially if they get reworked into Bludgeon and Banzaitron.

Well, they're new. But this is a fanbase where people keep saying we need new characters and hate them when they show up! I know I tend to do that a lot. :lol:

Yes, that is in fact a true statement. Whether that's a good or bad thing...remains to be seen, at this point. I do love me some Overwatch, but copy-pasting Overwatch character backgrounds/personalities onto new characters in other franchises does not inherently make me like those characters or make those characters good.

I don't see a Shockwave-crab-walker-tank working for Bludgeon, honestly, given he's mostly just been a regular tank. Figures of these two could be cool though, and a Banzaitron repaint has potential since Banzaitron can't seem to stick to a reoccurring alt mode anyway. I think I'd only buy the Decepticon Malus version though, as Magnus and Malus seem like they'd just be repaints of each other, and they'd have to do some retooling on Banzaitron to convince me there. Regardless of what I do or don't buy though, I would be happy to see these two get Siege figures, as it would be more Generations figures of characters that aren't just the G1 cast again.

Overall, new characters are always welcome from my perspective, but they do still have to be good characters.
