another day, another ABT Character. this time, its Cyclonus.
(Frank Welker Galvatron screaming intensifies)
Galvatron screaming aside, Cyclonus’s weapon seems…interesting.
It looks to be a giant laser that can clear a very large radius (looking similar to Warpath) except with a loooot of cooldown.
(Not sure if it’s the same radius as Warpath, I’d assume it’s bigger by the cooldown. Haven’t had a chance to compare.)Anonymous
Huh. That’s a pretty neat. I’m kinda surprised this type of ability hasn’t been done earlier.Anonymous
Yep, i saw that too.FortressMaximus@fortressmaximus
There seems to be an unusual amount of enthusiasm for cyclonus here, so here is mine from the 80s.Tobyjug@tobyjug
The constant screen shudder whilst using cyclonus is making me nauseous.
not a character I would want to use a lot.
Ugggh that stinks.
Tested it out for myself with the “try them out” thing during the event and sure enough Cyclonus has that dumb glitch where the screen continues to shake even though they’re not in vehicle mode.
That makes two now. Alpha Trion and now Cyclonus. Glad I decided to save my gems this time around.
Alpha Trion has EMP capability which freezes falling monoliths so one can avoid using vehicle mode and thus motion sickness inducing screen shaking.
I don’t know what the motive of the developers was to implement a shaking screen for these two bots, but I’ll avoid using them as much as I can, because this really makes me sick.
I always used to think that games were to have fun, not to get a splitting headache, but maybe I’m a bit naive about that.
EDIT (about 3 and a half hour later): Also the third VIP Kup is suffering from the shaken screen syndrome, so it’s probably a property of this team, just like the hyperactivity of the Speedsters team.
The last chapter from Alpha Trion’s bio:
Does this mean that the shaking is (was) supposed to happen only in vehicle mode?
Maybe the bio text was the original specification but maybe R/E – or someone in R/E – decided that the shaking is a cool effect and it will be on once Alpha Trion transforms. And this “cool” shaking was later extended to each VIP squad member. Who knows? But most of us knew that eventually it will make one barf 🤢 🤮
