Alliance Missions Update - It's Time for the Beast Wars

Commanders!

It’s time for the long awaited refresh to Alliance Missions! Megatron’s time as the Boss has come to an end, and it’s time to start the Beast Wars!

We’re doing things a little differently this time. All 3 maps will now feature a different final Boss from the Beast Wars Series.

Forgotten Realms will be seeing only a minor refresh, with Dinobot taking back his place as the Boss.

Shattered Lands will get 3 new Mini-Bosses, and a new Boss. Optimus Primal with a Randomizer Mod takes the place of Grimlock, Rhinox with a Stagger Mod moves to Waspinator’s spot, and Dinobot with a Special Attack Stun Mod claims the spot vacated by Rhinox. Cheetor will be taking over as the new Boss, and is bringing along a Critical Hit Rate Mod.

Now, onto Ancient Sanctum. This map is getting more than just a Bot refresh, it’s been completely rebuilt! We’ve simplified the variety of Buffs to require less specialization of abilities and Bots, and reduced the number of Paths required to fully explore the Map!

This means that at any point in the Map, there will only be a maximum of 5 paths to explore, allowing a Battlegroup of 6 Commanders to double up wherever help may be needed. Additionally, the minibosses will come at “pinch points” on the map, where paths will merge once again to allow all Commanders to engage in battle with them.

Now, we’re not going to give too much away this time, because we want there to be some surprises for you as you and your Alliance explore the new Ancient Sanctum map, but we will give you guys the list of Mod combinations you can expect to come up against, and the Minibosses.
