    This is where everyone starts reevaluating their opinions on Energon.

    You know... That's the exact reason legitimate complaints get overlooked... I can just about play Devil's Advocate for anything.... But this is a tough pill to swallow. While I think in general the fandom could be more forgiving.... Well I still don't know how we went from a show called Combiner Wars to...um.... To this.

    So... Yeah. I think in this case, we, as a generally negatively biased community might really be justified this time.

    Okay, but if it was good people would praise it.
    It's not.

    this got really bad...there were a couple decent episodes that showed a bit of promise but the voice acting is terrible the animation is so out of date and the story....

    this just went into a nosedive..

    I've been commenting against all the ultra harsh comments about this series because I felt the criticisms were small, petty, just pure negativity, and people were writing this off without giving the show a proper chance. With this episode and knowing there is only one left I have to say, what the f was that? Why isn't this about Combiner wars but Starscream and I do mean scream? I'll watch the last episode but after this one it's a fail.There were so many interesting directions to go but they came and brought this episode. I'm just speechless and really let down.

    That was just terrible. There's no point detailing what was bad because literally everything about it was just shit.

    This is leave-it-off-the-resume type of stuff.

    I'll say this for Combiner Wars: the sheer awfulness of it has finally given us something the majority of TF fans can agree on. I'm sure that counts for something.

    Y'know, normally I'm inclined to agree that this fandom's relentless negativity can get really grating, but in this instance? This isn't all just blind hatred because it's different from X or whatever, it's just a bad series from both a storytelling and technical standpoint.
    I mean, it's called "Combiner Wars" and the actual Combiners have barely been in it at all, shit, they even refer to the in-universe Combiner Wars in the past tense, it straight up isn't even about the events it's named after.
    A more fitting title would've been 'Tranformers: Aftermath' or something.

    That's not how combiners work, Machinima.
    They don't do that.
    Kind of like how Victorion did nothing.
    And Maxima.
    And really most of the characters.

    I haven't watched this series since the second episode. Instead, I've been following the comments and saving myself the trouble.
    The number of potential supporters this show has lost is downright amazing. Seriously, even with all the complaints people had about Prime, none were ever as unanimous as what this show is spitting out.
    Even the first two episodes came off as horrible fanfics, and it doesn't seem like it got any better. It makes me so happy I didn't waste the time keeping up.

    I think the worst part about this is that if the terrible reception is monitored, the powers that be will be less likely to put their stamp of approval on another project of this kind.
    Gee, thanks Machinima.
