    I figured that those of us who play this game could talk about it here, and perhaps give any tips/strategies that might help anyone who is stuck.

    Or, once the figures come out with the codes that you can use for the game, we can trade/share them here as well. Depending on whether you can even do that or not. We'll have to see.





    Did some testing if you will...or just some excessive time wasting. Either way, some info for those who might be interested in reading it:

    The Power levels for the current characters to choose/fight against. I did not write down the three stats for each, since you see them in the game. I was curious though, as to who was stronger/weaker compared to everyone. I also do not know if these stats change from player to player.


    Megatron (Gold): 1640
    Megatron (Black): 1615
    Optimus Prime: 1630
    Optimus Prime (Evil Face): 1650
    Sentinel Prime: 1620
    Nemesis Prime: 1625
    BumbleBee (Balanced Stats): 1620
    BumbleBee (Weak Fist Attack): 1630
    Prowl: 1630
    Barricade: 1630
    Starscream: 1640


    - Going from Level 7 to 8 will take 300 Experience.

    - Going from Level 8 to 9 will take 450 Experience.

    - Going from Level 9 to 10 will take 600 Experience.

    Getting the 20 Second Victory Achievement is impossible right now. I've tested it to Hell and back! lol From my tests, I have come to the following conclusion:

    1. It is impossible to get a quick enough kill without using boosts...which should be available in May.

    2. The programmers did not stop the timer once the victory is yours, and the timer does not stop until the little animation is over.

    My testing allowed me to get a victory at 23 seconds currently, that being after the animation is over. I have been able to defeat a Bot in about 16-17 seconds once the final blow was delivered, but the Achievement didn't pop.

    The fastest that I can defeat a Bot is in three attacks. One attack to get it just below half energy. The second attack puts it in what I call "Critical," since the energy bar is empty, but flashes red. The third attack finishes off the Bot. So in order to get under 20 seconds (with the animation of your character's victory dance factored in), you would need to get a Bot down in two strikes...which is impossible as of now. One attack to make it reach "Critical" mode, and then the second strike to finish it.

    Again, if the programmers just messed up with the timer stopping after the animation...instead of once the Bot is defeated, then it is easily possible to win under 20 seconds. We'll just have to wait and see.



    - If you want to collect Energon Cubes, you should play the lower levels.

    - If you want more Experience, then you should play the higher levels.

    - From what I've seen, Level 10 is the max for now.

    - The higher your level goes, the less blocks you have for stocking up on your attacks. Level 9 only gives you two blocks to store with, while the lesser levels had around 4. I think the max was six at Level 1...but I don't remember. I might make another account to write the stats/info down to make as a possible FAQ/Guide. Don't know yet.

    I probably won't be adding anymore stats/info to this until the game updates with more features...since there isn't a crowd of players for this game that post here. No biggie. For those interested in stats though, have your fill of these:



    Character's currently available with their attack numbers-

    Name--------------------Fist/Sword/Gun------Total

    Optimus Prime------------410/370/850---------1630
    Optimus Prime (Rage)-----920/280/450---------1650
    Sentinel Prime------------360/775/485---------1620
    Nemesis Prime------------855/215/555---------1625
    Megatron----------------530/210/900---------1640
    Megatron (Black)---------170/625/820---------1615
    Bumblebee (Balanced)----765/325/530---------1620
    Bumblebee (Sword)-------110/970/550---------1630
    Prowl--------------------540/835/225---------1630
    Barricade----------------390/840/400---------1630
    Starscream--------------640/290/710---------1640





    Leveling up-

    Squares is the amount of attacks that you can store up to use.

    Level-------------Experience---------Squares

    1 to 2----------------20----------------5
    2 to 3----------------30----------------5
    3 to 4----------------50----------------5
    4 to 5---------------150----------------5
    5 to 6---------------150----------------3
    6 to 7---------------250----------------3
    7 to 8---------------300----------------3
    8 to 9---------------450----------------3
    9 to 10--------------600----------------2



    Attack Grid-

    This is where you choose your attacks. It gets larger the more you level up.

    Level-------------Area---------Squares

    1-----------------4X4------------16
    2-----------------6X4------------24
    3-----------------6X4------------24
    4-----------------8X4------------32
    5-----------------8X4------------32
    6----------------10X4------------40
    7----------------10X4------------40
    8----------------12X4------------48
    9----------------12X4------------48




    Note: They have corrected the problem with the 20 second Achievement. Now, if you take a bot down in three attacks, chances are that it will unlock.

    No one will probably care...but they have updated the Bot Shots game.

    You can buy new characters, for 98,000 Energon Cubes (Around that number). Also, the codes are now out for Energon, or new levels to play on...or Super Bot codes (if you buy a Super Bot). LOOK for the sticker/label on the package if you want an actual code, since older figures don't have the sticker/label on the box, nor the code slip in the package.

    As for the game itself...it is TOTALLY NERFED in the Energon collecting part of the game...hence the "Buy our toys and get an Energon Code" gimmick for the new line that comes out.

    Example:

    Before, you would get about 240 Energon from each win. That's a rough average taking my wins and dividing it by my Energon total. NOW, your wins give you 40-50 Energon. I played each Level area (1-2 through 9-10) and it began at 40 and slowly worked its way to 50. Sure, my health for each win was about half or less...so I might get more with a higher health bar when I win. I'll have to see to make sure.

    Anyways, as it stands...you would need to have 2,200 WINS JUST to purchase ONE extra player in the game. I don't see that happening, since the game has been out for about 2 and 1/2 months, and only two players are over the 1,000 mark.

    The game was fun, but now it just isn't worth playing for such a weak-ass amount of Energon to buy items with. Plus you can't get certain levels/bots without the code...and none of the toys have them yet! -_- I actually went looking for Transformers stuff today, and while I found NOTHING NEW for Prime, I did find plenty of Bot Shots. All without codes, and therefore not worth my purchase.

    I might update this with lists for the new characters/items later...but I have other things to do today.

    I just checked and it is...for CODE users only. o_0

    So I guess you are not a real player unless you buy some Bot Shots (with codes that is), and then input one of them. After that, I'm guessing that Multiplayer will unlock for you.

    Here's some fun math though:

    To get one extra Bot for your team, it costs 98,000 Energon Cubes. Playing once a day and getting 100 Wins per day...it would take you 22 DAYS! The older payout would have taken you 4 DAYS. So they basically took away 80% of the Energon from wins. That's worse than your taxes from each paycheck. lol

    If you wanted to have all the current Bots in your account, it would cost 1,764,000 Energon Cubes. In order to earn that much (without using codes, but from playing the game), it would take you 39,200 Wins. At 100 Wins per day, you're talking over a year (1 Year, 1 Month). I used to get 200 Wins per day (only a couple of times though, since it was BORING!), so if you stomached through that, your time would only be 6 and 1/2 months. 0_0

    Will this game even be online six months from now? lol Great potential ruined from "Buy the toys in order to get the most from this Paper-Rock-Scissors copycat of a game." Not to mention ALL of the people who already have the toys that didn't come with codes. They must feel screwed over I'd bet.

    Bought a pair of bot shots today. They came with codes I don't intend to use. So who ever wants them, act quickly.

    2065-789-587-0329
    2821-156-239-1368

    This is of course assuming these codes are unique and actually something worth trying to give away.

    For those interested I grabbed Jetfire and Thundercracker. I would have gotten Starscream for my Con but he and Jetfire had far to similar vehicle modes. And since I don't plan on getting any more I decided to Cracker it up just for the visual variety.

    That was cool of you Ryoku. :)  I'm sure someone enjoyed those codes.

    I haven't played the game since my last post here, which looks like May 10th...and I don't have any intentions of returning to it.
