    Just a reminder that there are high quality versions of the wave 1 cards available if people don't like print and play.

    I am understanding the reasoning for balance for the bot mode but not the alt mode unless there are ideas on moving damage counters from Drift to an opponent.

    That’s the thing, why would I do damage to myself when it doesn’t cause a positive reaction in gameplay? At least bot mode damage let’s you attack an untapped character. Alt mode it’s just doing damage to yourself

    It started out with the idea of just a penalty for playing with cons as a mechanical way to represent of drifts history with them, but our playtesters gave us feedback that they liked the damage to turn Energon axe on from the beginning of the game, getting to swing with Energon Axe/Mastersword into a soft untapped target so we tweaked and played with that idea and found that there was value with the available card draw in car lists. With early Energon Axe access as well as Master Sword Drift supports a blue cars list in the meta vs Wheeljack aggro or Bumblebee Rally.

    With numbering that means one combiner team isn’t getting a stratagem. At least. And that’s ok. Sentinels really don’t need the help.

    I'll say this now without spoiling anything else. We do have plans for all the combiners, but they aren't all coming out in one wave. Because of the way our online tournaments work, we wanted to space things out a bit and get some large play data collected before dumping all the combiners.

    Bleeped up Productions has another Spoiler to reveal, this is a big one!

    Look, if you all do Aerialbots and Stunticons in this set, my son and I are going to be ecstatic. The Megatron stratagem was welcome too as that’s one of his decks of choice.
