Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars: Race Day Mayhem Event
Hound (Gunner)
Intrepid, fearless, unwavering, Hound is all these things and more - perfect qualities for an advance scout. But the truth is Hound just loves to explore. If it's new, uncharted or off-the-beaten-track, Hound's your 'bot.Using his topographical skills and 3D simulation circuitry, he'll have plotted every twist and turn of the terrain in nano-seconds, and his jeep mode is the perfect all-terrain, off-road form.

Release the Hounds! - Release 5 holo bombs that deal damage to each target. Deals double damage to resource buildings!
Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars: Race Day Mayhem Event
Drag Strip (Gunner)For Drag Strip, winning is everything, and a more competitive soul you will never meet. Every tiny online moment is driven by his desire to come out on top, whether it's racing, fighting or just trading insults, and the only thing he craves more than victory is to know he humbled or humiliated his rival in the process.His fellow Stunticons can't abide him, especially as he's not above playing his underhand tricks on them.
Holo Assault! - Release 5 holo bombs that deal damage to each target. Deals double damage to resource buildings!

New Updates

We’re constantly working to improve the game, and during our next update we’ll be making some changes to ensure fair and balanced gameplay for all players. This includes raising some of your bot abilities which are too weak and rebalancing some which are overpowered. Let’s take a quick look at some of the changes that are coming to the game:
10-January-2017 - Release 1.35
  • Fixed the Free Crystal timer display issue.
  • Fixed a series of bugs related to resuming campaign battles.
  • Battle History: the share button was not shown in some cases.
  • Combiners: The battle clock no longer counts down when the combiner is forming.
  • Scouting: You can no longer tap and find the location of hidden stasis mines during a war.
  • Headquarters upgrade 11, 12 & 13 achievements are now shown correctly in Google Play.
12-January-2017 - Release 1.35.1
  • Fixed the bug with Nano-frost misfiring and not having any effect.
  • Blaster & Soundwave - Health and damage increased by 5%
  • Defense Hack (Bombshell) - Hacked defenses deal 50% more damage. Target still attacks at 2x attack speed but now with 75% damage (up from 50%).
  • Whirlwind (Seaspray/Octopunch) ability cost decreased by 1 from 6 to 5.
  • Increased ability cast range by 2 for - EMP Bomb (Bumblebee/Skrapnel), Glass Gas Rockets (Kickback/Cliffjumper), Artillery Support (Rust Dust/Scavenger)
  • To make things fair & competitive, we want to give both pairs of Rocket Barrage gunners equal stats. This encompasses the following changes:
      Long Haul is given the stats of Alpha Bravo (means more damage, less health).
    • Prowl & Brawl - stats equalized at a point close to Prowl. This means a bump in damage at cost of health for Brawl and a bump in health at a tiny fraction of damage for Prowl (4-Star level 60 bot power changed from 1147 to 1141).
    Walls Level 15 - Health decreased from 17k to 16k.
    Design Commentary: We think that the max level walls are a bit stronger than they should be considering the data and player sentiment around them. This is a small step-change and isn’t likely to affect the game by visible margin, but we are thinking about further balancing changes as well as new abilities/boosts that may help players fight with “time trap” base designs. Ideally there should be no ‘optimal’ base layout (which means more choice for players to decide on their flavour of defensive strategy).

This event excites me a good bit. I am ready for Dragstrip and some crystals. Maxy needs himself another 4 star and more 3 stars!

Considering my 3* is coming out at Level 41 tomorrow morning, that Soundwave buff gets me real excited :D

Maxy's getting serious!


Stun EVERYTHING!

I've gotten to that point where I need more characters (I'm tired of dupes and getting different star levels of characters I already have) and I need more spark. I want and need to be more competitive, especially since I'm at hq 11 and Seibs II is gaining speed and strength

My two goals for this weekend with the double XP.

4* Mixmaster to level 30
4* Rampage to level 40

I'm keeping it simple.

Like CF. :twisted:

2* Scourge is in the oven right now. 2* Scrapper, Deathsaurus, Slipstream, and I think 1 more should hit 30 this weekend for the upgrade. That and my missile launcher will be ready to go. I really want a 3 or 4* Dragstrip from the weekend

Speaking of which: something that has been driving me crazy recently: Scourge and Thundercracker activating their abilities... and only transforming and landing. Scourge will make half a circle and stop. TC will transform but not attack. And they both show using the ability. It's irritating me to no end, and it is starting to become consistent

I've had that happen with Scourge and I don't know why, but with Thundercracker (and any other bot that targets a specific building), if the building is destroyed before their attack starts, it's basically cancelled but you've still spent the battle points.

Yeah it's not great.

I've seen Thundercracker sometimes get hit with a stun. Even stunned they can still transform but their attack won't trigger until the stun wears off so Thundercracker flies around the target.

Scourge ... I just put that down to him not seeing any viable targets. I swear Swoop has much better eyes.

We're finally getting our act together in Seibs II.

ThunderThruster, you're in Seibs II?
Re: Transformers: Earth Wars: Race Day Mayhem Event (1852045)
Posted by ThunderThruster on January 12th, 2017 @ 7:39am CST
Yup, just under a different name.
I completely associate the name ThunderThruster with being an autobot, so when I decided to play earth wars as a decepticon I had to choose another name: Razortrack

Yeah it's not great.

But the building isn't even destroyed. Brawl or Long Haul will hit a mortar or beam and it will be almost destroyed, so I'll send in TC to finish it off, but he transforms and lands, and he's not stunned when he does it.

Which is strange, because normally when he malfunctions there is a mortar/beam laser in his line of sights.

That's pretty much why I went with "ShatteredMax" for the game, to differentiate from the Autobot associated name

We need to get you on Line, when we come across loot codes, that's where we share them :) (don't want the Autobot scum getting them :p )

Max, there is a bug that pops up for Bludgeon occasionally where you target something, he transforms, but gets frozen in place until he his shot to death. Maybe that is affecting Thundercracker and Scourge as well.

Huh. My free crystals keep giving me those stupid "medical kit" and other stupid useless stuff of no use despite my different methods.

But, event wise, I've gotten 200 4* shards and a 2* Dragstrip

Burn, what (who) do you still need to complete Devs?

Pulled a 2* Dragstrip so far myself.
