    Sorry to hear it, but I'm loving Menasor. He's a damn tank.

    Dont get me wrong Menasor is not useless, but is not an upgrade to two Blitzs or a Blitz and Springer in my opinion.

    Ah, the irony of having 1000+ cybermetal, ~600 transmetal, and no way to use it . . .

    I remember the days when I didn't have enough, lol.

    I have him paired up with a Blitz and ThunderCracker, but I have not PVP'd with him yet, so maybe my opinion will change...

    Was facing the bot team of barricade, Chromedome, armada starscream, and drag strip; Chromedome got his hotshot off on my whirl, took out the barricade, etc.

    Then, round 2 banner comes up, and I see a 22 dmg dot on my jetfire. He was only affected that one round, and I still won, but I can see that glitch being a problem of rme if it comes up again.

    Anyone else had something like that?

    Nvm, faced same team, dragstrip attacked my astrotrain with 16, no dmg, just the animation, then when the round passes the dmg is received. Weird.

    Well I have Menasor now. I'm still waiting for Dena to resolve my issue, but here's what I think happened: I had almost all of the stunticons in my three teams somewhere when I tried to recruit Menasor. I think having them active is what caused the glitch. I re recruited the missing Stunticons and then bought more gold to level them up again. This time I made sure none of the Stunticons were in a team when I recruited Menasor, which went without a hitch. So apparently if you're going to recruit Menasor just make sure none of the stunticons are active when you do it. Still want to get the missing gold from Dena, but I can always resolve that with them later.

    EDIT: Just levelled him up and paired him with maxed Astrotrain and Scourge and that is dominating! Max level optic blast does 20 damage to every enemy. Also, I can't help feeling like this game knows which cores you need and gives you every other core EXCEPT the one you need. I've got ridiculous amounts of just about everything, but I need three more support cores to recruit the next character. Out of several battles the last couple days, nothing. Not a one. Got plenty of others though.

    Generally opinion -- do people:

    A) Recruit every bot in every tier, keeping all bots even though they don't use em.

    B) Recruit every bot in every tier (to get the drop cube unlock), then selling the un-leveled characters they don't use.

    C) Skip recruiting bots they don't need (to save resources) even though it means not "unlocking" the cube for a particular tier.

    I'm personally just entering Guard 2 Tier and don't really need the characters of that level, but want to get the cube -- not sure if it's worth wasting resources or saving them for later (for other characters down the road)

    Let's be honest here - both of our current combiners are mid-range side-grades for their respective rarity levels.

    What that means is:
    • If you don't have 4 decent bots of that level, they are an upgrade
    • If you do have 4 decent bots of that level, there can be scenarios would it's still a strong build
    • If you have 2 really strong bots of that rarity (but not 3-4), it can be an upgrade
    • If you have 4 really strong bots of that rarity, it's going to be a downgrade in most situations

    So if you only have 1 Blitzwing and like a Jetfire 2 or Thundercracker - pairing with Menasor is an upgrade.

    If you have 2 blitzwings and some other SR bots, he's probably a side-grade or good for specific play styles or specific metagame.

    If you have 4 SR Optimus, 4 Slipstream, or 4 Armada Megatrons then he's probably going a downgrade for your A-Team.

    I do "A". The sell price is so little and there is no storage cap so I just keep them.

    So, once we get a big update for the wave 3 guys, here's my idea for Magnus:

    Ultra Magnus (lvl4 'bot) requires Magnus cores.
    Base damage 14/16/17/22/Multi-12 Robot, 12/13/15/20/22 Team Armor Buff 5 vehicle
    Final level 18/20/Remaining are Multi-16 Robot, 15/16/20/24/28 vehicle

    No idea for HP, but does it seem balanced?

    I started off at A) for the first couple of tiers, but then went straight to C).

    Are the drops for completing a tier's worth of characters actually worth it the higher you go?

    a 3rd squad of Barricade, Motormaster, Astrotrain and Jetfire (or technically Runamuck/Doubledealer either) doesnt sound so bad does it?

    Yeah once you get close to elite level it is best to save resources. I'm focused on double dealer blitz springer brainstorm armada megs. I would need a lot more resources to recruit all the others. These guys will drain your hunter scout support soldier cores quickly especially if you don't pay for stuff.
