    The developers must not be American. Guess the game isn't worth playing, then.


    For real, though. I'll be gone most of the day tomorrow :/ So wont be playing until the 5th or after midnight on the 4th.

    Provided they fixed the bugs and lag from alpha(sadly never got to play beta) it should be a pretty fun game.

    kind of sort of.
    It certainly could classify as a shooter moba, but it plays differently than your average ones like lol, dota, and smite.

    i think there are multiple modes as well, however we only had tdm/KotH modes in alpha.

    They call Dota type games MOBA's which is a stupid way of calling them anyway. TFU has nothing to do with that, it's a third person shooter with some open world and arena based elements.

    The game's fine but it's far from being actually good.

    I am very disappointed they went with pre-set characters rather than allowing players to make their own Transformer.
    I assume it's so they can sh*t out tons of them and sell them for $15 each.

    Played a few matches. So far, it seems like Autobots always out-match the Decepticons (I'm Decepticons and we always end up losing). I'm guessing this is because all the good players want to go Autobots.

    The combat is alright, but nothing mind-blowing. Vehicle combat is kinda dumb, but driving around and crap can be fun, especially when transforming a lot.

    Will play some more tomorrow.

    Currently busy with league and Divinity so I can't really get on and tell you if it's better than the alpha(s) or not, sorry.
    I'm to assume it is, it's not like jagex is completely incompetent in coding.

    Game is made with Unity. They didn't even build it from scratch.

    No crosshairs, and when you die you either have to use up a limited respawn or get returned to base with your bot being repaired over an amount of time basically out of commission. Did not like that.

    Had a great time yesterday in this game, its loads of fun and easy loader too..
    Bots are well done & look cool! Pressing T to jump over objects is extremely enjoyable mouse is easy to move around building its bit like gliding around corners, which is nice an easy.
    A great simple but well created game, loads up very easy needs no "real" downloading time.
    To cap it off, I was on the decepticons side good game

    Its a very simple game its a shooter with levels the only customization in the game is different colour paints for the bots and stat attributes.

    Its has open world where you drive around doing small pop up missions. It has instanced group PVE missions which are objective based and PVP which is your standard team death match, king of the hill stuff.

    I would of like the option to customise the weapon loadouts on the bots but everything is preset the only thing you can customize is the attributes.

    I see this game being something where they pump out premium cash shop bots and items and not much else its fun for a few hours then you release there is no depth to this game and no rewards for playing long term.
