Anyone else tired of the Autobots being depicted as basically super heroes? Of course, I mean this as in them being basically invincible. It all stems from the creators philosophy of: "We like it when the good guys are out numbered, but still win at the end of the day." (Not a direct quote, but still very close.) So the tiny Autobot resistance can completely smack around an entire army head on without any sign of struggle. Now, there are inconsistencies to this such as Convoy, most character intro episodes, Drakness Rising and other occasions, BUT for the majority of the time Vehicons and Insecticons are slaughtered without much resistance. There will be scenes of 20-30 generic troops and you will only see about 5 lasers going off at once and of course they will be wildly inaccurate. (When they do hit, Primus flips a coin and either it would briefly knock down the Autobot or be harmlessly absorbed.) Realistically the Autobots would be mowed down without proper cover and strategy. Instead we get an admittedly sexy montage of close quarters melee kills. These types of fight scenes would work better with more equal numbers as to not make the Autobots come off as super powered heroes fighting purse snatchers. I'm thinking like Beast Wars, but with an all around larger cast for both sides to better experiment with different fighting styles, personalities and chain of command. If the whole army thing was kept for future incarnations I would like to see it be changed. Make the Autobots use guerrilla war fare tactics such as stealth and sabotage. Make the Autobots work towards a goal instead of reacting to whatever pops up on a map. During season 1 they just ground bridge to areas of activity and commit mass murder on generics with no real over all goal. No real definitive plan against the Decepticons, just pop in and shoot. Recently we had the relic hunt so that had more structure, but still it felt reactive. I think it would be cool if the Autobots actively gathered Intel out in the field with scouts who would look for Decepticon outposts or mines. Infiltrate them to sabotage, overthrow strategic bases or assassinate generals. Have a larger cast so they can divide and conquer and slowly gain territory or set perimeters around human areas. Like if Prowl was in charge of a base with long range artillery that they captured from the Decepticons. He would have a small team trying to hold onto it for as long as possible while the other Autobots focused on cutting off energon supply from the main forces so Megatron would have to gamble how many troops he wanted to use for recapturing or destroying the base. Any other thoughts? Anyone like how it is? Good guys should always be stronger regardless of numbers? Prime feels balanced to me as it is? Yes, I would like a different approach, but not like this? I agree?
