    Well I'm really disappointed how this turned out. Thought we were going to get a TF-themed MMO on the level of Runescape. What a bummer.

    I was so excited for this game....... 2 years ago. I've slowly lost interest. The fact that it's no longer an MMO kills it for me.

    First of all I want to say that I was so exited when I heard and saw what Hasbro and Jagex were going to bring out a few ears ago.

    I am now very worried about the success and if this game will see the light of day. The game industry is very uncertain right now. With the way they are treating MMORPGs and other games that have a major fan base. Good examples of this are Dark Millennium online and Aliens Colonial Marines.

    With DMO it went from an MMORPG to a offline game. Then there was no word about the game for some time and then THQ filed for bankruptcy. And sold of Relic to Sega.

    With ACM there is a big long story about its ultimate failure. I bet many that are reading this know and have read all about it so I will not right about it. I am so glad I did not pre-order this game. It is heart crushing what Gearbox did to it. :thumbdown :puke2: 

    Ultimately until they release this game and I see it for my self I am not holding my breath.

    Wrong wrong wrong. That is actually considered by fans of the original Ace of Spades to be their WORST offense. They added classes and extra weapons and other crap that doesn't fit with what Ace of Spades was meant to be. Also, if anyone gives them advice on how to fix their game, they ban them from the AoS forums. At least Ace of Spades's true fans can still play it on Build and Shoot.

    Sorry for the rant. Big Ace of Spades fanboy.

    Should've stayed with the original MMORPG. I've lost ALL interest in this game :( 

    You had a really good idea.....and you scrapped it....congrats. I'm sure there will be A LOT of people who will lose interest in this game now.

    It's not an MMO anymore. It's an MOBA game.

    They won't. Trust me,I'm a fan of Ace of Spades (the original, not that pile of slag made by Jagex), I should know.

    This went from 100% interest to MAYBE 1% interest. That is also being generous. Customizing a character doesn't enhance the game enough? I might have tried it out even though it DE-evolved from MMO to MOBA. Now? Meh. Less than Meh.

    Transformers Universe: Less than Meh.

    Will leave this here..

    I learned the very hard way after star trek online to hold 0 hopes about the content of qany future game releases, and I have been so much less let down lately.

    people really know how to complain about a free to play game, and i thought we new that it was a moba along time ago?
    People should reserve judgement for when they actually play!

    It's made by Jagex. It's gonna suck more than an Allspark-powered vacuum cleaner.

    I can think of far, far more unsuccessful MMOs than I can successful. The ratio is at least four to one.

    shame that they went the MOBA path. Especially when you consider that the MMO route for Transformers DOES fit quite well with the MMO concept, quite to contrary of what they are saying. It was probably a matter of feasibility rather then innovation.

    PS we already have an MOBA WITH character creation its called Fall of Cybertron multiplayer

    Well I lost all interest in the game now. I was really excited for an MMO and building my own TF. Now that it's a MOBA, it will be a PoS title that will fail when compared to the big boy MOBA's already out there. Epic fail...

    Oh well, I WAS concerned about maintaining a life/work balance once this game got added to the mix (I don't even play a lot of games, but this seemed like the perfect storm to hold my attention)

    Now I could not care less. Such a shame.

    What sort of judgement should they hold off on? Most people are complaining about the game changing from an MMORPG to a MOBA. Yes it's "free". So? If they like MMORPG games and not MOBA ones, why should they bother playing the game? I can't stand MOBA style games. So why should i bother playing it if i know it's not the type of game that's going to entertain me to play it?

    ^This

    I was willing to wait patiently and reserve judgment ON TILL they changed the genre of the game. The thing that bothers me the most is the ridiculous execuse that an MMO would not work with TF
