    The question though is will they be able to one shot max lvl 13 mortars ever? Can they effectively compete against a maxed lvl 16 base. Not sure if you have and 4* gunners but IMO the effort would likely be better spent getting them to where they can actually compete at hq16.

    This is an interesting discussion and would love to hear views... Who are the 3* worth leveling to 51+?

    Reflector, Hook, Megs, Deathsaurus, Deadend, Scourge, Skywarp?

    These are some of the key warbots that I unfortunately don’t have in 4*

    Why Thundercracker?

    I do have some 4* gunners but they're still being leveled, and they're on the weaker side of the group. Obviously my 3* gunners can't compete against a maxed level 16 base, but then again, I don't currently have a squad that can. those 3* gunners can and do contribute against level 15 bases, and making them stronger will only make them more useful.

    To answer your question...why no to desthsaurus and others like him is this...3* ds is 207.9dps/10,000hps maxed, upgrading to 51 he only goes to 225.6/10,800...the increase is super small
    At level 5 SA, it’s only 1340, 12 ability points for only 1340 is nothing...and then at 52/5 it only goes up to 1380...and using 45 sparks and then 130 sparks for level 7 SA would only net you 1452 in ability...that’s not worth it...same with skywarp...a lvl 50 maxed with SA 6 is 2946...leveled up to 51 only goes up to 3186...at hq 16 you aren’t one shoting anything...and again his cost are too high to use his special and his dps/hps is way too low...not worth leveling...gunners are a waste because their hps will not keep them alive...you need 3 5* shockwaves maxed out to keep 3* gunners alive and they aren’t one shoting anything so it’s a waste of ability points to even use.

    For me I would upgrade thundercracker because I dont have a 4/5* and he is useful because of his range when using Deadend/Astrotrain combo to take out Beam lasers or missle launchers with the use of a smart bomb mk3...so he is purely situational...if you don’t use such a combo then he also is a waste

    Healers are good...because they heal and stay in the background...the more heal the better, megatron obviously because if you rush you want him to live longer...and astrotrain and deadend are good to lvl to 51 because of their long range capabilities...meaning they can avoid stuff that would obviously kill warriors/warrior specials and fliers and gunners who have to walk to were they are going

    In short the increase at 51 to 3* is tiny...like Tim...so only healers, de/at/ or megatron would actually be worth it...anybody else is too small of a increase...unless you need guys like nemesis to protect your 4*’s or thundercracker to help out your other 4*’s...the 3* increase is way to small to be dependent on that to help you out...and six days or giving 3*’s 45k and 130k spark for their ability is not worth it...3*’s should never go beyond level 5 ability and only certain ones deserve even that much.

    HQ lvl8, will continue with upgrades after event. Two Autobot sqads with 2*bots only so far, most already at lvl30. One 2* deception squad around lvl 25. 44 hours into the event I managed to bring my current alliance 3,500 points. Previous event it was 5,500 points.

    I wish I started playing earlier.

    Thanks for the detailed response! I agree with much of what you’ve said.

    That said, I do think that HQ16 with base defences will be a game changer for the Deadend - Astrotrain strategy. I don’t think 3* will cut it for HQ16 unless they are level 60!

    In general, it is a lot easier to get to max HQ16 than it is to get bots powerful enough to beat one.

    I have a feeling HQ16 will be more for the squads with some 5* bots. That’s way beyond my league.

    I think only specialty bots will be worth it. As phasesixer said, healers, astrotrain/Springer, Prime/Megs and long range fliers like TC/Silverbolt will be worth leveling but probably not worth putting a lot of spark into.

    I personally will not be spending a whole lot of time leveling 3*s past 50. Right now the only two I can definitely say I will are First Aid (since I don’t have the 4*) and Silverbolt.

    Healers, prime, kup, and springer (until I get his 4*) will be candidates for 51 but right now I have 4* primal and wheeljack waiting for theirs, and I just got these guys in the last ten crystals. AE594767-579C-486A-B3F4-FA9A98E743AA.png 47257E9F-750F-437B-889F-C6F02FB00A0A.png

    And I have hound and sideswipe approaching 40 to boot.

    We finished last night. Ended up with a 3* Warpath. But almost 1100 4* shards as well, so a nice event.

    Same. Other time was drift, full set as well. Only difference was that my 4* drift was my second crystal, warpath was 55th.

    Still waiting on 51 kup before I can move warpath through.

    Wowsers, 55 crystals. Our alliance managed to collect points for 7 crystals only. But I got a 2* Warpath so at least something.

    We finished late last night. I only managed a 3* and a lot of 4* shards which resulted in me getting this guy.

    I’m so close to a 5* but can’t get a dupe to save my life. While I would much rather have had warpath, it’ll be fun to mess around with him. Several alliance members have him over 50 and SA7 or so and he’s actually an amazing cleanup bot to follow behind saber or strafe.

    We’re now helping out our feeder alliance make sure they get as many crystals as possible.

    I’m just amazed that on the same event weekend where you get Warpath, you can have guys who have leveled him up to 50+... do these chaps spend $100 every weekend? I’ve spent way too much $ on this game, but after failing to get a 4* hook and astrotrain after buying several bundles of each, I’ve sworn to be F2P only.

    Some people just can’t be asked to be patient.

    When I pulled 4* Springer from a bundle I had him to 51 two weeks later. I had him to 40 by the end of the first event and to 50 the next event. He’s one bad bot.

    It does take coin and fuel though. With that being said, it could be argued that if one were going to spend, it’s better to spend it on coins, fuel and boosts than it is crystals. The SBB is a good deal and the 30k coins will usually get me through a couple of event depending on how hard I’m leveling. I haven’t even messed with my 3* Warpath and at this point, I’m not sure I will.

    Warpath Unlocking.

    4* shards: 580, 3* shards: 510, 2* shards, 1300

    Is there a core that boosts the Special Ability Damage of Air and Special class characters?

    That would be the best prestige event result I've ever seen even if you had done all 60 crystals. WOW.

    No, at the moment there isn't. For specials I usually use an attack core, on say, Saber or Skyburst, or Rejuv or vitality for the more "tank-like" bots like Magnus. For fliers I just use reflective coating. Supposedly there will be an SA boost for fliers coming soon.

    I'm looking forward to HQ 16 being opened up. All these raids I do during the week will let me put the resources to good use.

    I especially look forward to 3+xp events and other ways to accelerate the bot development curve. Upgrading my base won't be my problem, getting my bots to beat someone else's HQ 16 is.
