    I was thinking about this a little further, and if they did it, I thought it'd be a good idea to have Optimus and the core characters around just for a prologue chapter, before they disappear.

    That way they can still include Optimus in the advertising. Makes it more marketable and recognisable.

    Then once that's out of the way, they could focus on Magnus's crew and some of the lesser known characters.

    Then near the end, ... they receive a mysterious transmission.

    I disagree that all the enemies looked same. To me, there was a big difference in their look with the Cons being more angular and the Bots being squared up. As far as acting the same you could probably expect 2 military forces on the same planet to have similar tactics when they are ingaged in similar actions such as guarding/attacking an outpost, base, or city. I also think that the bosses on each side acted completely different. for example the Decepticon campaign had nothing comparable to the Starscream or Soundwave fights.
    The environment could've been mixed up more. The cartoons and comics talk about a Cybertronian wilderness. I imagine forests made of metal and robotic wildlife. Dirt could also be incorparated as metal dust.

    Hmm, Prime's speech from the end of the 1st movie would be a good ending.

    well for obvious reasons I don't think a movie/WFC crossover is a great idea, but something along the lines of that speech would be an appropriate setup for an earth-based sequel.

    Mostly I think it would be cool to have a game focusing on lesser-known characters, but book-ending it with Optimus and crew would probably make it more commercially viable.

    Dunno, they could come up with varied reason to have a different cast. This doens´t have necessarily to follow the cartoon plotline.

    Or it could start with Optimus and the crew going on an Energon Mission, and you could have the first chapter on them trying to defend the Ark while it's taking off. The next Chapter would be you as the Decepticons infiltrating the Ark. Both Cons and Bots crash somewhere (Earth).


    The rest could be Rodimus or Magnus trying to get to some device that could help end the war or something. Or possibly have the Decepticons taking over Cybertron and have the Autobots taking over a city. That would be an awesome mission.

    The only danger with something like this is you don't want it to feel like it's setting up something that never comes. You don't want to give people the idea they're headed for Optimus-on-earth type levels only for those not to materialise.

    I'd have it so maybe Optimus has Ultra Magnus send Rodimus to bring the device, but as he's approaching there's a Decepticon ambush and a massive explosion where it looks like the Ark with Optimus and crew were destroyed, but then before they can investigate that, the device falls into Decepticon hands. You have to set up a greater threat to keep the focus on the main characters.

    I'd also like to see a mission on Metroplex and/or one of the moonbases at some stage. And I suppose Cybertron would be a more brokedown place than it was before. Maybe you could have a stage based around rebuilding a city, and then in a later Decepticon chapter you destroy the same place. Just brainstorming out loud here. ...And maybe Brainstorm could show up at some point.

    ^ this ^ :cool: 

    I personally think that it's sad that I've had WFC all this time,and don't have the DLC.I 'm positive that it's the reason I can't play WFC online! I'd but both packs soon,but... I'm saving up for TF: Prime + Halo CEA,right now I got about 50,$55.so,yeah...loooong way to go.

    I personally hope it (but I don't expect it to) ties in with Transformers: Exiles (Transformers: Exiles - Transformers Wiki). The first level could be the Ark and the Nemesis launching. Perhaps you could play as Magnus and the Wreckers fighting off Decepticons sent to stop the Ark Launch.

    I wonder what insanely big bosses we will go up against this time? I would love to see Devasator get in to WFC2.

    Man I would love it if multiplayer had insanely huge maps and teams like Battlefield 3. Imagine two teams of 30 Autobots and Decepticons duking it out! :D 

    What was the max team size for WfC? Was it five or six or something like that?

    C'mon, get real... High Moon is probably STILL using the same Unreal engine. multiplayer will stay a disaster.

    6 players per team in WFC/DotM.

    I wish HMS would make it so that whoever downed a person in multiplayer should get the kill. It annoys me so much when I down somebody and some asshole comes and steals the kill.

    Yea, the same thing happens in Gears of War CONSTANTLY. But it would help, and be alot of fun, if High Moon would give it the Gears treatment with an exicution, like a curb stomp. Or maybe you could use your malee weapon and kill the downed opponent in different ways depending on what weapon your class has. Also I would like it to be where every class would get knocked down before dieing unless the blow was powerful enough to kill you on your feet.

    I think they should add in assists in the scoring.

    Um, there ARE assists in the scoring... If you damage a person but someone else gets the kill you get an Assist bonus.

    I think they mean as an actual score that turns up at the end in the scoreboards. Y'know, along with the amount of kills and deaths you had, etc.

    I wonder if WFC2 will take favoured elements from the TFPrime game, TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE?

    Never mind the plot for now. Create your bot, vehicle/plane/(anibot?). But instead of the browser RPG. Simpley have us blast each other senseless.

    That's what TF fans want yes?
    Creating our own ideal TFer and fighting them as a war for cybertron intended?
    I could just imagine...
    Someone's custom decepticon, HULK HOGATRON racing around in a stupid yellow red monster truck...
    Being shot down by someone's custom... err... completely new TFer we haven't seen yet.

    Stick that in a game. And I'll buy it.
