Spotlight Mission: Emergence

edited September 5 in General Discussion
Cyclonus has been found in New Quintessa, and both Starscream and Ultra Magnus are fighting to keep him from returning to his master, Galvatron! Despite their efforts, Galvatron is reunited with his servant.

Meanwhile, the rumors surrounding the return of Megatronus have become reality! Will the reunion of Cyclonus and Galvatron create even more chaos? Can the Autobots prevail over the return of Megatronus?

    Relics

    Remember, the Relics in the Store will not change this month! So hold on to those tickets if you're still waiting to see what's new!

    Did you mean to say that they will change?
  • Can we improve the special mission rewards just a bit? The T2A essence is a little weak for the current state. I know its to late this month but next the current rewards will be old. Im getting more T2A in AM every week.

    Also if the chip count can be increased for completing each level. To reach a 5 star bot each month with the current payout of chips to reach a million is difficult.
  • Also thanks for trying to improve 7.0, it at least shows you are listening to your player base.

    Yes, that is my bad. They are changing this month, and will include:

    Cloaking Field (20x Tickets): Gold Generation and XP + 10% and Raid Chip Rewards +5%
    We're also carrying over the Star Saber Relic

    Fixing it now!
  • Hey everybody,

    I forgot to call out one small reward increase (also forgot to put it in the first time around, and have adjusted to fix). We've doubled the Tier 4 Basic Spark Essence from Mastering all of the Master Difficulty from 1000, to 2000!

    Sorry for leaving that out earlier!

    @Kabam Miike

    It’s been x2500 T4B essence every month since release of Master difficulty...No increase in rewards...
  • Does this mean Megatronus will be a part of the Special Mission? Maybe a special Ambush or even a Mission boss?

    The storyline should be intriguing to say the least this month. Looking forward to it.
  • No doubt megatronus will be a big part of the game right now but i dont think he will be a playable character yet... i may be wrong he could be character 2 for this month but its more likely he will play a bigger part of the dialogue for this months spotlight

    Thanks for the feedback.

    No, Skywarp is! At least for TFTF game because then they can say the 'Skywarp-y' guy in the early wallpaper is Cyclonus.

    Looks a bit like Thundercracker to me.

    If doubled, wouldn’t it be 4000 t4 basic essence? Currently, you get 2000 essence for fully exploring master in the Wheeljack spotlight (500 for completion).

    I hope this confirms Cyclonus is actually Skywarp
    Bombshell is Cyclonus.

    No

    I actually agree, from a personality and intelligence perspective Cyclonus is much closer to Bombshell.

    Also given Bombshell is in the foreground of that sequence is pretty telling.

    -Bombshell becomes Cyclonus
    -Skywarp becomes "his Armada"
    -Thundercracker becomes Scourge
    -The remaining Insecticons become The Sweeps

    We're also carrying over the Star Saber Relic

    Does that mean that the new Cloaking Field and the Kickback/Primal relics will stick around for 2 months like the previous relics did? Or will they just be a single month

    Also, if the Cloacking Field will stick around more than 1 month, any chance you might clue us in as to exactly how long it will carry over? Would really help with strategizing what to use tickets on and when, as with the recent relics I passed on the much desired Gold Galvatron relic because we didn't know the Star Saber would be sticking around.

    Thanks for everything!

    I'm Confused with this @Kabam Miike
    In the actuall Wheeljack Spotlight you get 2'500 (2'000 + 500) T4B Essence. Same as @Darm0k said.
    So are you talking about to doubble it in the first Post --> From 1'000 to 2'000 (As corrected right now)
    Or are you talking about to double it as per last Spotlight --> From 2'000 to 4'000?

    Please clarify that little confusion.

    One last thing (and not to nitpick... just want to be sure), but if its the ones im thinking of, the Primal relics are +HP & Attack...
    b8tmf46hbfdp.jpg

    Is it going to be something other than the Primal relic?

    Thanks again! :smile:

    That statement is on point. His pesonality seems a bit more like Bombshells''s intelligent personality, than Skywarp's not-so-bright personality. The way that Cyclonus tells Galvatron that they need strategy for something to work, kinda sounds like something Bombshell would say.

    Well, I am not doing well in this thread. Sorry folks, there was a miscommunication between the team and I on this one. There was no increase here.

    Don't sweat it. Lots of info to relate, thanks for clearing things up.

    After you take a break and grab a cup of joe, can you let us know how long the Cloaking Field will stick around?

    Thanks again! :smile:

    Weren't the relics supposed to reset so we could get multiples? I was expecting the Star Saber to be available once the timer counted down, but it appears to have reset for 55 day duration and 0/1 available...

    Its kinda messed up that the boss of 3.2 is a bit we've never seen, dont have any Intel on AND have no way of knowing how his abilities trigger outside of someone datamining the game
