    Shockwave is an Autobird? Or it’s just typo in news?

    Shockwave is not an Autobird, it’s an Deceptihog. you didn’t hear King Pig’s audio voice?

    Can we get the other characters that we had to pay for ?

    Wish they would give us a new area or two to play in.

    I see it starts on the 12th which is fine. I just updated my iPad for this game and was getting candy canes, snowmen, flying Christmas pigs etc. fine but no results. i.e. It doesn’t start until the 12th. That’s ok. My problem will be if the contests are unattainable like the Thanksgiving ones were. I play regularly but the first contest in my league was dominated with people who apparently stay up 24/7 and the second gave you that no help Pilgrim hat after the third round and after that it was 3 times the turkey-pigs to get the next goal and many runs with no possibility of getting any. Just make it fair Rovio!

    Well it’s good that Rovio finally made the accessories good for something other than style!

    Thanks, I appreciate your comment. I can’t wait to download!

    By Tom Tree

    Help! I’m level 381 (Dark Emperor). I haven’t been able to find out how to unlock the Hot Rod (fire-breathing Bumblebee). Anyone know how to unlock or purchase?

    Thanks!!

    He was available for purchase during the Black Friday weekend. I’m afraid you can’t get him anymore (at least for now).

    By Tom

    I played a bit over Black Friday weekend. Where in the game was he available for sale? I never saw where to buy it! The shopping cart icon in lower right? That’s only ever been for crystals. Right?

    Rank: Hardened with 630 points
    By Tomlad (@talmud)

    He was one of the last black friday packs that was announced. And no you had to pay around $5-$6 to get him. (BTW I’m from Australia so the cost might be different depending on where you live).

    Love this game and looking forward to the 12th to play for rewards. Logged into Facebook for all playing time and have not had the updating bug since.

    By Shockwave640

    Please please PLEASEEEEE make Shockwave a free to unlock character like Bluestreak/Prowl and Arcee/Airachnid, its sad and pretty dumb how we were forced to by Nemesis and Rodimus and if i have to by my favorite Transformer in existance (Shockwave) ill be deleting the app

    Since today, Dec. 12, the game crashes when started. Even a new installation doesn’t help. Has anyone an idea? I’m playing on an iPad mini retina.

    By Andrew

    Hi
    Update ok.
    Today the day the challenges should have started, the game crashes.
    Any suggestions?
    Regards

    I had the same problem, too. But when I opened the app sometime later (around 10:50 AM), the crashing stopped. The crashing should end the next time you open the app once the version number on the bottom right corner of the title screen is updated to 1.9.23.5. That ended the issue for me.

    By the way, the challenges DON’T start today. They’ll start on Tuesday, 3 days from Today. Once you tap on the Challenge Banner after visiting the map, there should be a timer of when the challenges start.

    By Andrew

    Solved

    I just installed the update on my Galaxy s6 and my son’s ipad 2 now game just crashes. WTF

    Later in the day yesterday the app started working fine on both the ipad and my phone.

    By Grayfox

    Anybody else not able to open the ABT Christmas update app today? Was working fine yesterday.

    The app keeps shutting me out yet it’s crazy how it was working yesterday.

    @trainman2012 I had the same problem, too. Everytime I try to play the app with a connected Wi-Fi connection, the app crashes. It doesn’t crash if I play the app without the Wi-Fi, though.

    However, when I opened the app sometime later (around 10:50 AM), the crashing issued stopped. So, the crashing should end the next time you open the app once the version number on the bottom right corner of the title screen is updated to 1.9.23.5. That ended the issue for me.

    Why did not the event begin 12th as expected ?

    Rank: Well Traveled with 1900 points
    By furyslinger2000 (@furyslinger200)

    @grimmjow The 12th of December actually sets a timer of when the Daily Challenges begin. As of today, the Challenges are just 2 days away (start on Tuesday, December 15).

    Thank you!

    By Grayfox

    Do you have any idea how long we have to unlock him? Getting these tokens is tough. I mean 5000 is alot.

    this update is awesome but did anyone here experience loss of data or other problems after downloading the update

    By Louza9 (Galileo)

    Has anyone else not received their promised token reward in these Christmas competitions
    ? I placed first in my group in the Thursday competition (second competition — the packages) with 700 points, but did not receive the promised 1000 token reward in my total.

    By Ben

    Anybody know what the accessories actually do? I would buy them if I had any idea…

    Rank: Deputized with 140 points
    By Gman007 (@john-gorrell)

    Why do we have 6 days of the token exchange when we could be still completing the daily challenges? 12 days was not enough time to obtain 5000 tokens for shockwave. Not for those of us with lives anyway.

    Rank: Hardened with 630 points
    By Tomlad (@talmud)

    I agree, although i already have shockwave and all his accessories. I do wish that the daily challenges would continue until the 31st of December and have the 1st of January be for token exchange.

    By Cigaray

    I agree. I only had 2 days to do the challenge. For some reason the game did not updated until 25th. Now I am short of tokens.

    By Larry

    Game is freezing…, again. With?
