    I've been thinking about that for years. I play World of Warcraft now. I think a Transformers MMORPG( if done correctly) would kick some serious ass.

    A great idea but there is one problem, it takes years to make one so if work started now we counld be looking at a release around the time of transformers 2

    No



    Really, does there need to be another MMORPG out there? Sure it'd be cool if you could pick your own alt mode, and then all the other fun stuff, but odds are high there'd be a car, a sports car, a muscle car, a jet, and a tank for alt modes.

    I do think there are too many MMORPGS out there, but a TF game done in that genre would be interesting for sure. If you could pick the era and continuity, I'd be sold. Maybe.

    You forgot about a Truck :tongue: 

    The thing is that there are so few good MMO's out there. Sure, odds are it would be screwed up by the developer, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't try. To do it right though there would have to be extensive customization options. Get a bunch of different car manufacturers on board and their library of models, both historic and modern, and you might have something uniquely cool.

    Sure, there are tons of MMO's to play, but 99% of them are terrible.

    Always possible.

    Don't forget, in development right now we have...

    - Marvel Comics MMORPG
    - DC Comics MMORPG
    - World of Warcraft Expansion(s)
    - Rumored "Starcraft Galaxy"
    - Everquest 3
    - Dark Age of Camelot (under a new name)
    - Dragonball Z
    - Lineage 3
    - Various sports and racing MMOGs

    It is always possible someone will make a giant transforming robot one. May not be called "Transformers" though. But it would be easy to do.

    A TF MMO would be cool. The license fits the genre quite well.

    And there's so many MMO's already out and so many more coming a TF MMO wouldn't make much of a difference. I don't get the people crying that "there's too many mmo's already." Is there too many FPS games or too many RTS games or too many Racing games out already?

    I was wondering a similar thing. Although I'd think starting as a lower alt mode in a set class - small car, glider, utility/pickup truck, small animal, and upgrading with points as progressing - sports car, jet, Big rig, dinosaur etc. Certain attributes could be cheaper depending on original mode chosen, and others could be bought at a price - ie basic flight is cheap for aerial alts but costs twice as much for trucks, but trucks are alot tougher. speed for cars, firepower for military etc. And certain upgrades could be bought at higher levels - triplechanger ability, head/targetmaster, new alt mode etc.
    This could all be on top of the basic aesthetic designs like colour and proportions (which could be slightly affected by chosen alt.
    Id definatley be interested!
