March's three featured bots speculation


Okay, ktomov has a nice image of the bot pools (5 star pool, featured bots pool, and unreleased). Time for some speculating....

I'm going to go with Cyclonus (we haven't had a tac featured bot yet), Hound, and Tantrum. Possibly swap in Ramjet with one of the latter two.

A little early for this thread? Yeah. Well, I just wanted to be the first to post about it. :#

    So far its been bots that were in the christmas exclusive crystal so if that continues it will be hound, sideswipe, and ramjet.

    Not too early for me!

    Well if the Reforged Spotlights follow the path of the old Spotlights, as they have so far, Hound's Spotlight did come after Primal's so I imagine they could tie Hound in there. And maybe they'd finally put the Hound relics in the raid store as well.

    The other two I don't know...would they want to put a more enticing option in there with Optimus instead of Cyclonus??

    Nah. Doubt they'll do a month with bots that literally no one wants (besides couple of players enjoying Sideswipe). Further if Sideswipe is in there, it'll be 3 scouts in a row. Also I doubt they'll release Tantrum as there will be no Brawler left in the pack.

    My guess is Bumblebee (DOTM), Wheeljack and Ramjet/Hound. People will went nuts for the first two and they'll still have the option to do 2 wanted + 1 good for nothing bot like Ramjet or Sideswipe for April and May.

    I know many will disagree, but the pattern from my side is like this: 2 good bots (Bludgeon and Jazz/Windblade and Ironhide) and one Meh (Motormaster/Blaster). Guess that will be the formula to push people for at least two 5* in a month.

    Edit: That's based if they don't want to p*** off the whales that got OG Prime and Ratchet in crystal opening events. Otherwise - who knows it can be anyone.

    They have no reason to be peeved off, those bots can't stay exclusive forever. Maybe it's too early for Ratchet but it's been 5+ months now since that Optimus crystal event.

    I speculate OG coming for the month of April, in another word : the anniversary.
    Like you said, they can't stay exclusive forever, so it means that basically one day we'll get them ( him and Ratchet ) so I assume they just wait for a good occasion to sell it.
    So about next month actually it's pretty hard ...
    So here's my theory for the exact 6 next bot.
    They'll sell 3 really good bot/ or 2 good bot and 1 also good but not on the same lvl as the 2 other ( but anyways, better than Hound/sideswipe )
    So if OGP comes the month after it, they'll put it with like 1 extremely good bot ( Megatronus ? Even Ratchet ? ) so the people couldn't afford the 2 extreme bot, because they basically just spent everything the last month.
    This strat was used in another way, but with the same intent, at the release of Megatronus/OGP 5*
    Making the player use every drop of money/ressources from their wallet, virtual or not. So they can't afford the best bots that comes just after
    So the pattern should look like this
    March : Bumblebee G1 - Scorponok - Cyclonus
    April : OGP - Megatronus - Wheeljack

    PS : Another strat would be to just sell 2 extreme bot with OGP, so basically no one will get the 3 bot unless = extremely rich/Huge hoarder. And the vast majority of people will only get 1 of the 3, 2 for the big grinders.

    And it would look like this : OGP - Megatronus - Bumblebee G1/Ratchet

    Damn, that’s exactly what I was thinking. Sounds like something Kabam would do too...

    Just give me Robotronus
  • Please let Shockwave be one of them. I’m trying for a 4-Star of him to swap out Starscream for on my team and have been failing miserably at it so far.

    Starscream dupped is actually pretty good. He’s extremely underrated.
    I have him on my mission team as the Tac, and I would DEFINITELY prefer him dupped over dupped Shockwave.
    Him undupped is useless though.
