    I still need Rust Dust, Stormclash, Dustup, Fireflight and Powerglide in 3 star regardless, because 2 star characters don't count towards unlocking Combiners.

    From reading the text of Rust Dust's skill, it looks like a powerful Damage inflictor, but I won't know for certain until I can try it personally.
    Stormclash and Skyburst do fairly decent damage.
    Dustup's ability may be useful if upgraded, but as mentioned priorly, I only do that for 4 star characters, so at the moment, it's not good for anything.

    Actually, Prime team has no problem with DPS.
    I didn't mention that there's a 2 star level 30 Ultra Magnus on that team.
    Between him, Prowl and Jazz, if I get them close enough to enemy defences, expect them to vanish in a mass of explosions!

    A 4 star Ultra Magnus is on my goal list, to make Prime Team even more powerful.
    He's also been assigned to base defense, so would improve that area of the game as well if I am able to unlock him.

    I am also looking for a 4 Star Mirage.
    I currently have a 2 star level 30 Mirage assigned to base defense.
    But that was also another case of failed unlocking attempts.

    If you're having trouble with 3-star-heavy teams getting more than 1-2k energon per fight, then you are lacking dps because stronger zones are "inaccessible" to you. I have teams composed of only 2* bots hitting 2800power zone bases pulling in 100-200k on lucky draws.

    "If I get them close enough" then your team is already getting pounded by the defenses that one strong flyer would have eliminated before it even became a possibility for either prowl or Ultra Magnus, and Jazz's ability is too expensive to waste on a single mortar, so you need your enemy to have a poorly setup base. And if he's not upgraded....

    I have a 2* and a 4* ultra magnus. There is a very different dps and health level between the two, and they're not very comparable at all.

    You're being stubborn with advice you asked for specifically, and is going to cause people to not really want to help out when you ask about things that we're obviously quite capable of helping with.

    You are aware that energon acquisition from enemy bases is dependent on the target player having stocked up enough of a reserve to confisicate?
    I know for a fact it is possible to get 100k minimum from a level 1300 base if they have the surplus.
    But it looks like they made sure to spend it all before I arrived, so that's why my returns have been so low lately.
    Even Team Prime targeting Level 2000 bases has only gotten 30k on average and that's on a good run, which most of them aren't.

    My defense upgrades are costing me aroundabout 2000k now, so it's irrevalent wanting or needing to upgrade my teams, as I can't do it anyway.
    I can have stronger bots or stronger defences to keep Cons from stealing my energon, I can't have both.
    And they've been taking energon about as fast as I can earn it lately, so that is also a factor limiting my progression.

    Your teams being upgraded allows you to hit bigger bases with more resources which will help you upgrade your base. Upgrading your base won't gain you resources, and a loss means you just lose a small percentage which is negligible in the long run, and you'll likely lose anyway because most players attack zones lower than their team theoretically should compete in, because it's guaranteed.

    Hitting higher zones nets you more resources not only because the limit is higher, but also because their build wait times are choking their spending and have more stockpiled if they're regularly attacking. Lower bases spend more often with shorter waits and new unlocks, so they aren't sitting on as mich for as long. And energon is a big choke point for me because of that lab restriction and the fact that I save a build bot for walls.

    You should always be upgrading a bot in the lab. It's your biggest choke point and you want minimal downtime because you're definitely going to be cursing the 3 day wait times for level 40s.

    There's no way you're losing energon as fast as you earn it unless you're being attacked literally as soon as your shield drops every time, and you're letting fuel sit all day without using it. And if that's the case you're very unlucky and very casual in playstyle anyway so it's a wash.

    Mirage on defense? I think you need your strongest 'Bots on defense especially with Brake-Neck's sniper ability.

    I like rust dust on paper but in practice she's rarely used. Lots of damage to clustered buildings but she runs in early, has low health and the ability has a short range. Not to mention she dodges cannons so you set her up to hit point A and she dodges back, giving you the red x and wasting your time. If you can place it right it burns walls down real quick though. But it's expensive and her autoattack is weak.

    Been playing for almost a year now. Sharing my main team. Not super high level but I can take down most max 15 bases with some creative strategies involving strafe, Arcee and primes rush

    Just go to the highest zone you can and attack their storage. People hit me all the time, to low to win and just take the resources they can. I'm always maxed and my teammates are also. You can pull 1mil if you hit mine not that zone 13 is open yet for you.

    Lately, I've been attacked at a rate of once a day, usually after 10-11pm my time, because when I come back in the morning, my resources are diminished and there's a notification that I was defeated (again).
    When the upgrade cost on everything is 200k on average, there is no choice but to let the stockpile sit there, as it's not possible to spend it until the cost target for the upgrade is met.

    Whether or not Rust Dust is useful is besides the point, Combiner rules say she's required and so she must be obtained.
    If I plan the scenario properly, maybe her low health won't be an issue.
    Pyra Magna and Jumpstream usually take point, distracting the defences from the helicopter twins and Sunstreaker.
    Who then proceed to blast out as much damage as possible until I run out of power for them to do so.
    Rust Dust will be taking over Sunstreaker's role when/if she is unlocked.
    The mortars are Windblade's responsibility, with the laser beam gone, she can jump into melee range and take them down.
    That is, if there are any mortars left after Pyra Magna and Jumpstream break them all......

    And you'd be how surprised how effective Mirage is if the scenario performs as designed.
    If the enemy group triggers him first and the other two outposts activate at the same time, they're cluster bombed by Ultra Magnus and skybeamed by Swoop while completely paralyzed.
    Swoop is getting all the skill upgrades by the way, because it both benefits Team Dinobot and base defense.
    He's at level 4.

    If I had unlimited or even copious amounts of energon, then yes, I wouldn't hesitate to do enmasse upgrading, but I can't and that's all there is to say.
    But I don't think it applies to 2 star bots, I tried to upgrade a level 30 2 star once and it wouldn't allow it.
    Half my unlocks are 1-2 star.

    Also, I'm hesitating because I'm not really a fan of the XP grind.
    If I obtain them in 4 star, it means all the resources spent upgrading their skills/level were wasted for a character who will never be used again and I have to start collecting it all to spend for a second time on the same character!
    I'd rather do it once then twice.

    What I've read here is that Huffer isn't a good unlock, his special requires significant upgrading to be useful.
    So based on the opinions here, no.

    We have the full 40 members. We are a Top 80 alliance (during leaderboard events), so whatever it takes it what we do. Last leaderboard event we finished over 600,000, so I imagine we'll beat that.

    you mean is every alliance bumping their requirements? I am not sure. Probably those in the top 80 are, this weekend will be highly competitive.

    I bought a Mixed Bundle, landed a 3* Hot Spot. Pulled a 3* Hound from one of the premium crystals, and from dupe shards I opened a 3* crystal and got Pipes. Great start to the event.

    Not everyone, the alliance I'm in we only ask you get 3k per team event so we can at the very least get the 2 star. And yes I know 2 stars aren't that good and top out at level 40 most people in my alliance are starting out. So we are trying to build a good strong alliance together with about 20 people in the alliance right now. It's pretty laid back so if anyone wants to join they are more than welcome, could always use good active players that are just looking to play the game causally and not feel the burden of 10k to 15k requirements
