    I’m happy for you bud. That said, the age of 4* bots is over. I wouldn’t sink any resources into him (unless you can Max Forge which has its own downside given the forging bug). Instead, save what you got for when you land a 5* MV1.

    Will do then, I'll save up some brawler sparks for a 5 star mv1, but there are some 4 stars that must go to r5, examples are Megatronus and G1 megs. Both are duped

    Def agree with you on Tronus (I have a 4*/MF/Sig90 that I will keep for the foreseeable future). OGM is in the basic 5* pool so I don’t consider the 4* a must keep.

    Now you need to dupe him

    Doing 16 objectives are quite easy.

    Though true, i won't forge megatronus, or Og prime. Both max forge too. Ogp is also at sig 30. Though 4 stars may be obsolete for you, i find them useful. And because i ranked up my mv1, i will try master mode again.

    I'd like to humbly disagree with you. 5*s may be more powerful on the basis of sheer strength, but it's easier to take up a 4*'s Signature to higher levels than it is for a 5*. And the Sig is where a Bot's true potential lies at.

    I should clarify. My comment was meant to underscore the importance of keeping pace with the game. I agree with your point about Sig and unlocking a bot’s potential (and how that can ultimately allow you to complete just about every aspect of this game). With enough skill, you can complete RoK with 4* bots. You can compete in AM at D90+ or even RotK. That is a potential path for sure, albeit a much harder one than jumping on board the 5* train (especially if you are a F2P). It’s a long road to upgrading 5* bots; even more so when compared to 4* ones as you’ve mentioned. Which in my opinion validates my point to start sooner rather than later. I guess it all depends on what your goals are. I’m just seeing a lot of players who held on to the hope of using 4* bots for AM now unable to keep up as the ceiling for D lvl keeps rising.

    @Primerprime5 oh so true.
    Though I'm in the midst of ranking up several 5*; my 4* 5075pi, sig 100 forge 100 Galvatron can still hold his own against a 11K 5* G1 Prime.

    I will shed tears when time comes to forge him. The things he's done for me!

    "Luckily" i don't have a 5* variant

    Now, i should have edited the title with something like "Now i got this, what's my next move, but i have some thoughts.
    Hm. I would think that people with that amount of 5 stars ranked up, they must've spend real money on the game. I like to think that i made good progress in the game and not spending money on it at all. Is it even possible for people like me to get those 5 stars and rank em' up? So, what shall my focus be on now? (Obviously saving up for 5 star mv1, but it takes months for me to get a 5 star at times.)
  • Well done! I've yet to max out any of mine, lol.

    I feel ya on this but the tides are turning (even for F2P). 5* shards are available in many places and the pace to obtain them is picking up dramatically. Just saying.

    Sig will only take you so far.

    I'd take this over a sig 100 4 star any day, esp with MV1 as higher levels only increase the melee damage for those few seconds.

    Well that’s not a fair comparison. Maybe a R3/5*/100/Sig 5 is a better comp to a R5/4*/100/Sig 100 MV1.

    While we are sharing our MV1’s, here is mine. :)

    Well isn't that a way to rub some salt in my wound? Ffs. Cool mv1s though. They must deal a truck load of damage.

    Yeah I'm currently fighting the urge to forge my 5/50 Prowl into my 4/40 4* Prowl, but at his current sig level vs the unduped 5*, the 4* is leaps and bounds better. His health bar and attack are of course lower, but when the sig kicks in his damage skyrockets and surpasses the 5*.
  • BlackRazakBlackRazak Posts: 2,238
    @OptimalOptimus_MV1 the Ore-13 and new away missions have helped tremendously so.

    I've earned every bot i own, be it via arena, Spotlight, etc. rewards.
    I've been f2f'ng since April 2018, and roster pales against some 6 month old accounts, but everything was WON.

    The heartbreak of multiple 5* dupes (considering i only had 6!) and being unable to progress/keep up with AMs, other players...
    The new Away Missions really really help with resources.

    MV1, G1 Prime, G1 Meg, MM, Tantrum, Tronus, WJ, Galvatron, Rhinox, Ironhide, Grimlock, Bonecrusher, Prowl, Shockwave are KEEPERS till you actually get to R4 duped 5*s (but yes, the 4* need to be awakened).

    I don't get this "race to max out 5*" that a lot go on about. For future purposes, definitely, but you need some decent firepower NOW. Don't count your chickens just yet.

    There are PLENTY aspects to F2F that 4* max forge high sig can still handle, including MASTER and RoK.

    Harder, yes, but totally doable.

    Dunno your squad, but do invest into some 4* killers till you dupe/get your preferred 5*s.
    The 4* max'd will do AMs up to 3.35-3.45 quite well, and as mentioned even RoK.

    And make sure it's a balance.
    Otherwise you'll be in limbo just waiting.

    Hm. So now that the method to get energon/gold crystals are gone from AW, what should i do to gain more energon? Save em up? Cause i need to improve to get those tier 3 away mission crystals and such.
  • Faithz17Faithz17 Posts: 692
    How to gain energon:
    - explore all spotlight missions, yes even easy
    - Run arena and get the milestones

    How to save energon:
    - don’t buy bot crystals, complete waste of energon
    - Run daily missions to get repair kits for master spotlight run
    - Use boosts and relics for the hard paths

    I don't blame you. Unfortunately if you want T3A and T4B there are not a lot of other options outside of monthly spotlights.

    Yeah, arena is an annoying grind. However, if you recall, Kabam stated that they're trying to separate each play mode in the game a bit more, so that we will go to certain areas for certain resources. Right now, in addition to spotlights, arena is where we go for arena crystals, t3a and t4b. And so I play those arenas. Fun? No, but I can easily hit all the milestones on autofight with minimal babysitting.
