    I still cannot wrap my head around the decision to remove these abilities. Did High Moon decide they want to make vehicle mode boring? Because I rarely see anyone transform, besides Scientists and they are hella easy to shoot down without barrel roll.

    "Balancing issues"

    That's all we know as far as reasoning, I'd like them back but odds are they're gone. What's weird is the tanks have a ram attack like the Destroyers to in campaign.

    Yeah. Really disappointed, there's no real reason to transform now.

    Exactly my problem. Making it feel like less of a "Transformer" game.

    And saying it is for balancing is crazy. You can change things, instead of removing them.

    Yeah, it's sad when I find myself sprinting everywhere with my titan because it's faster and I don't have to deal with transformation times...

    I was fond of the Leader class's truck dash ability. I couldn't wait to perform that with G1 Optimus' chassis. Guess we can't run anyone over as trucks any more.

    Though in campaign,
    when playing as Megatron, Optimus transforms and tries running you over sometimes

    "Balance issues" is also why killstreaks are gone, but agreed it seems like they just took out anything they couldn't figure out how to balance it in 3 days.

    Actually they said they took out the second ability because "player feedback" aka focus testing showed that people didn't use the second ability that much.

    I believe they said they still have the coding for Vehicle Abilities, they're just not using it. Meaning if they get enough feedback about it, they might be able to bring it back with a title update.

    So they just removed it... for $60 i want more not less. Give us the option of using the second ability at our leisure, when we buy it... it's our game & we want choices.
