    So just watched a guy, playing the full game, go into the character creator and the 2 abilities in the demo is it. No shockwave, no engergon sling, nothing else.

    I am extremely disappointed in how much HM took out of the MP. It really has been dumbed down.

    they are right when they say this isn't a sequel its a remash.

    Take all the bad things from WFC and fix them. Check

    I think this is a great thing personally.
    More abilities mean more possible balancing issues and exploits.
    From what I played on the Demo it was fun and simple and immensely fun.

    All these people slating High Moon are terribly misinformed.

    Shockwave was more than likely tried and tested and found out to be over powered or unbalanced so it was taken out of the game.
    Sorry.

    Maybe if everyone hadn't bitched to High Moon about how overpowered abilities like Warcry, Whirlwind, and such were, they wouldn't have felt it necessary to dumb down the multiplayer experience. Hopefully people will be happy with what they get now, and not beg High Moon to fix what's not broken.

    Yes it's true that more option means more balancing, but it also mean more complexity. That complexity is what keep people like me playing for more then 2 weeks.

    FoC and WFC MPs feel like they should be switched.

    FoC MP seems like a devs first crack at a deep MP mode, and WFC seems like the fully featured evolution of what FoC is.

    WFC already had problems keeping people interested, and FoC with the MP being so striped down doesn't have a chance in hell of keeping gamer's attention.

    Ah but FoC's MP does have one trump card over WfC's...

    ...It's actually fun.

    I don't know about you guy's. But i'm happy with what we have, i mean you can transform with a touch of a button. Is this not enough? Haha.

    You know, I think that is totally unappreciated in this time. We see this amazing transformation from a truck into a full sized metal man.

    I think that's the selling point for ALL transformers merchandise.

    Words cannot describe how satisfying transforming is in this game.
    With any class, blasting at an enemy with vehicle weapons and then changing form to finish the kill is just...
    Well, perfect really...

    I get that Whirlwind is too awesome for some people's tiny minds, but Warcry? I've never had a problem dealing with a Warcry affected Leader and, to my knowledge, it hasn't helped me but for encouraging me with that awesome scream.

    "Soundwave: Online. All systems performing at peak capacity. Logic processorsAHHHHHAHHHAHHHHHHH!"

    Seeing the Soundwave template Warcry is just such a funny contradiction.

    It's funny when you use it as Optimus in campaign, because he sounds weird.

    If Soundwave could warcry it would be "Activate power boost. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Charge complete."

    This is pretty much how I see it as well. Very disappointed they're going with only 2 abilities. A step backwards in my eyes.

    Exactly. Who needs killstreaks when you're a Transformer? Haha. Has anyone one realized how far gaming has come to this day? Think about that instead of blabbering about bonus streaks. I'm sorry, it's just i see multiple people complain about the same thing. It frustrates me.
