Why Jazz and Ratchet as the BOTM?

Since the other thread got closed due to the question being answered, here's the question at hand in the purest simplest form.

Why are Jazz and Ratchet the BOTM, when they were already a BOTM and not Grimlock, Starscream, Soundwave, Drift or WJ, when they have yet to be a BOTM?

    No idea, possibly all the newish bots will straggle in one at a time each month ?, I’d hope not cause we need some different 5*s to play with we’ve been patient all of 2019 for these bots lol 😂

    Not sure I follow your comment @Jazz444 but the bots named above have been in game since 2017 (Grim, Galvatron, Soundwave, & Drift). WJ is the only “newer” bot having been released 8/9/2018.

    Sorry but I need some English lesson to understand Vydious' words:
    '..., but the stance on that one bot is that he is going to be looped in with the others. '
    What does 'looped in' or 'with the others' mean here? Will Megatronus join the loop (of general chip bots), in simple words please?

    So I guess my biggest confusion comes to play is that KABAM keeps calling it a Rotation below are the listed definitions of a rotation.. So how does looping back in bots that have already been previously released called a rotation kabam should have called it what it was from the beginning "our discretion of what we want to give you guys" Please kabam keep our expectations low so once again we don't get our hearts broken by you!



    1. VARIABLE NOUN
    Rotation is circular movement. A rotation is the movement of something through one complete circle.
    ...the daily rotation of the earth upon its axis.
    2. UNCOUNTABLE NOUN

    Overall if you notice vydious keeps apologizing for the confusion and so on. I am pretty sure she is limited to a lot of things and the communication between her and the devs is not strong enough. So in short I blame the devs and yes kabam as a whole for continuing the trend of confusion, miscommunication, ignoring the game, etc.

    So far the only good information we got is that tronous is exclusive so atleast that one confusion is cleared after almost a year of questions that went unanswered.

    @JIMMY_SAB has done an amazing job of organizing the list of botm and exclusive bots which should have been done by the devs to keep things clear to the players. However, they are understaffed so I'm sure many such things will come from the players only. lol kabam should start paying the players for keeping the details intact. Funny how it is always stated that the team takes our feedback when they have no idea what is happening. I'm sure they were blank when vydious asked them about how the four bots were missed. While she stated that there is no such process that was defined, it is very simple that those bots that are not made available yet (non exclusive) should have been the botms. Why do we even need a defined process for that? Isn't it obvious? That was how it was done for a whole year. No non exclusive bots were repeated. How can the devs miss 4 non exclusive bots and shuffle them without any prior communications?
    I don't expect any answers here because I know that kabams tftf segment is going through a hard time. @Kabam Vydious this is not directed to you but to the company so keep it cool.

    Not too long ago many over here were begging for Ratchet and Jazz 5*s.
    Before that it was OGP. Wheeljack.

    There will be a time when Tronus comes up for sale and a huge collective "Meh" will be deafening.

    😂😂😂

    TBF to @JIMMY_SAB and @Voltron , though, this months' repeat BotM won't please many completists.

    Maybe have a sticky thread in forums actually stating Bot Releases of the past, in a chart; plus a fun back and forth between Kabam and it's players regarding upcoming wares/bots/content.
  • VoltronVoltron Posts: 883
    We can discuss the process/situation of the BOTM after we get an answer. I don't want to give any chance for this to go in a "different direction" and be told we were answered and it's getting circular. Let's stick to the the question at hand.

    Why are Jazz and Ratchet the BOTM, when they were already a BOTM and not Grimlock, Starscream, Soundwave, Drift or WJ, when they have yet to be a BOTM?

    Nemesis, Thunder Cracker, guys like this possibly?
    I know Drift, Wheeljack, and others have been here forever, so if Kabam plays this game the way I’m thinking, they’ll release 2 featured 2019 bots with a new generic featured bot for 2020 each month, not new bots, but ones that haven’t taken their turn yet

    Nemesis and thundercracker are exclusives. We’ll never get them normally. Though the hallowed crystal is now in special, soo.. might get a chance. Someday.

    I think someday could be the anniversary, if kabam wants to keep players they have to start doing what the community wants now

    Why were Jazz and Ratchet selected as BOTM even though they were already BOTM (Jan and March respectively)?

    I think I already solved it, their going to keep putting 2 already generic BOTM, with a bot that hasn’t been a Generic BOTM

    With no new bots they’ll milk the daylights out of the old school bots until they get to exclusives I bet, because a game that constantly repeats its characters can’t get anywhere
  • VoltronVoltron Posts: 883
    ..and that killed any motivation to continue. Mods won by having to do nothing...and you wonder why they communicate (or lack of) in the [inconsiderate] manner they do.

    NBA teams have a got rotation they use in their roster for games. When players come out of the game, that doesn’t mean they don’t go back in until everyone else who hasn’t played goes in. They could go in before or after some of the other players. It’s up to the coaches discretion. In the case of this game, I call it the Kabam dart board.
    Sorry but I need some English lesson to understand Vydious' words:
    '..., but the stance on that one bot is that he is going to be looped in with the others. '
    What does 'looped in' or 'with the others' mean here? Will Megatronus join the loop (of general chip bots), in simple words please?

    Pretty sure it means that that bot being spoken of will be grouped together with the other exclusive bots that are not part of the 😏 rotation.
