    Ugh, having problems with that 5* Rachet fight. any tips? got 5* Shockwave (R4 max), Grim, UltraMags, Kickback (all R3 Max), and 4* Megatronus Max 4*.

    Just can't seem to stop him from healing.

    Cheetor’s repair block makes quick work of Ratchet.

    But otherwise you need to just keep hitting him. It’s just more damage you need to do. Kickback seems to make the most sense because he can absorb Ratchet’s shocks and lower his power.

    Fight fire with fire bud. Bring a healer of your own and settle in for a long fight. I took him down with 4* WJ, just went for the power upgrades and kept healing and power draining him.

    As long as you can stop him from routinely getting that sp2 you should do fine.

    Granted that’s not the best way, as others have said heal block him, but it’s dependant on getting the heal block when the mod activates. Unless you want to use shockwave and just keep him ready with a sp3 the entire time
  • I did manage to get pst him, then was sidelined by Sideswipe. I can't justify spending the amount of money I would need to to keep going, so calling it quits on the 5* run, I guess 5* G1 Bee will be my white whale.

    I'll get him eventually. Just not this event.
  • I. HATE. JETFIRE!!!!

    (1100 Energon down later... Mission 3 is finally cleared. One to go w/ 3500 Energon left.)

    Jetfire is super tricky. The stun block and reflect block can drive me crazy.

    Kickback helped me a lot, but I also perfected Ratchet, so that works as well.

    His parry is very frustrating. Couple moves to incorporate:

    1. Ranged Heavy when he shoots. I find his ranged attacks to be predictable so I shoot when he shoots.

    2. Dash after side step. Instead of doing immediately after you’ve side stepped, actually wait until the last shot clears the screen. Seems counterintuitive but oddly works vs JF.

    the "last ditch" will trigger when bot falls below 10% health... so, either be prepared for a "longer than normal fight" or time your last attack to "just before the 10% threshold" and then launch Shockwave's sp2 or sp3, it'll work with Kickback sp3 or Megatronus life-steal (which steals like 15% health if I'm not mistaken)

    There is 1 G1 Bot missing from this Event! No reward to come from this, BUT let's see who discovers the missing Bot first. :)

    Windblade.
  • I found Cheetor's repair block and bleeds made fairly short work of both Ratchet and Jetfire. I used his heavy a bit... okay, a lot.... more frequently than usual, but both battles were basically dodging and watching them bleed out.

    Kickback. Per Kabam, WB, Nemesis, & Tronus weren’t counted as G1 because they did not appear in the initial show/cartoon.

    G1 is a loose description just about everywhere you look anyways. Kabam has been curated their own little universe with the storyline for awhile now so I just accept their view of it all.

    Didn't use any energon for that mission. I remember using primes special 3, it does a lot to jetfire. Bleeds were also nice and helpful

    The Final Mission of the 5* Mission was actually easier for me than the 3rd One (my Duped R4 Grimlock took out “Permanent Burn” Grimlock w/ Health to spare & Optimus wasn’t too bad to deal with, either). Total Energon Used in the 5* Chapter: about 1600-1800. But it was more than worth it.

    So now, these are the only objectives left standing between me & duping my 5* G1 Bumblebee...

    Game on!!
  • Hi Guys. Do the mod on Mirage need to be rectified? It said it is 50% armor but it seems more like 95% armor.
    I bring rank 4 5*Prowl fight him, after Mirage 80% down he almost invulnerable.

    "PROWL" you know he has high damage but only his sp1 can lower 2% to Mirage. Why?
    It was really nightmare after I perfected 300 hits I gave up.

    Be sure to read the mod first .

    This mod has been introduced in the old AM map, so many of us are well aware it's annoying. I challenged myself with my Mv1 because I know he can bleed through Mirage anyway. But Prowl is dead against it.

    As for your question: 50% armor is for one stack, but it can stack until every punch became pillow against rock.

    Megatron’s fused armor break made things easy.

    I used an R4 Primal on both (on a beast team to purify). It was a long fight with Grimlock but I just kept my armor at 10x and kept using heavy-to-SP3 whenever my power maxed. I lost maybe 25% health total.

    Primal seems like an odd bot to use against Prime but I’m so used to not using my heavies with Primal (to keep him armored until I need then) it was actually pretty easy to deal with the mod. And Prime is pretty predictable so I could just keep baiting his SP1&2 to keep him from getting to SP3. I’m not sure I ever ever took an unblocked hit so it was easy.

    Cyclonus is the hardest part of this mission, as always
  • This is Week 3 of the anniversary events and we have a few nice bots like Wheeljack and Wingblade available. Anyone have any idea if there is going to be another Week 4 set of bots or are we expecting the same set to repeat or something. Because I may have read in an ingame mail that OP will come back again in the store since he was there in the first set and no one really got a chance to collect enough chips to get him so quickly. So is that already over or do we get a fresh set of bots after Sep 18th. . @Kabam Miike

    VERY troubling math: if we obtain all generations chips available, we can only hit 40k (2x 5* bots) on Sept 25th. (Assuming ya math is right)

    That’s 2 Wednesday’s from now. We know 5 bots are repeating at the end.

    I think many of us are holding out for Wheeljack, Megatronus, and Nemesis. If we get Wheeljack this week, there are 6 bots we don’t know yet that will go by and we can’t obtain them.

    Kabam, can you throw us a bone here??? Free 2k chips, or at least tell us now of the remaining bot schedule?

    Thanks

  • I don't think f2p guys can hit 40k with what has been revealed so far. Folks from my community have hit 34 objectives along with exploration of all special difficulties. And they are stuck at around 36k.

    Kabam isn’t wrong though. It is indeed kickback.

    I think a raid or arena event will come in the last week for TF chips.. If not.. well... buy a 4 star, rank him up and forge into a 5 star :)

    (It's just my opinion)

    Finished all 4! Had to use an Attack and Health Boost for the last Mission of Chapter 4. My 5* Prowl currently sits at Signature Ability lvl 2... unfortunately. I plan to Rank him up to Rank 4.

    Very nice! Now can you identify the cartoon episode each of these quotes are from originally?

    For example, I remember Mirage’s quote from the end of the original pilot episode.

    For example, I remember Mirage’s quote from the end of the original pilot episode.

    3 of the quotes are from the original Mini-Series Pilot “More Than Meets the Eye” (Megatron, Mirage, Bumblebee). Prime’s quote is from “Fire in the Sky”, which was the 1st episode Skyfire/Jetfire appeared in. Shockwave’s quote is from “The Ultimate Doom” Mini-Series. Grimlock & Galvatron’s Quotes are from “Transformers: The Movie”. Cyclonus’ quote (to Ultra Magnus) comes from “The Killing Jar”.
