There are currently 28 squads in a more or less regular rotation. Based on this rotation list
- the bonus squad in the event starting on Sep 23, 2021 will be Instruments of Destruction
consisting of Soundwave, Soundblaster and Blaster. Previous event used one TF.
Officers and Command squads are currently off the regular rotation and the other two completed war squads (Operations and Ground Force) may be also taken off from the rotation.
If the pattern holds these should be the events through the end of the year:
Sep 23: Soundwave – Instruments of Destruction
Sep 30: Dirge – Coneheads
Oct 7: Heatwave – Rescue Bots
Oct 14: Sideswipe – Speedsters
Oct 21: Ultra Magnus – Target: 2006
Oct 28: Ironhide – Pure Warriors
Nov 4: Season 10 Prime Pass Event
Nov 11: Strongarm – Femme Fatale
Nov 18: Flamewar – Noughties
Nov 25: Sentinel Prime – Leaders
Dec 2: Energon Soundwave – Energon Fueled
Dec 9: Bluestreak – Brothers In Armor
Dec 16: Ultimate Megatron – Variant Versions
Dec 23: Omega Supreme – Gestalt
Dec 30: Nemesis Prime – The Iconic Transformers
Jan 6: Season 11 Prime Pass Event
*Predicting the featured character is a lot harder than the bonus squad because historically they haven’t always stuck to the pattern. Generally I just chose the one that has been the longest since they were featured. So I could easily be wrong about some of those.
Also I’m not sure about the placement of the Prime Pass events. The last couple have been the first event every other month. So I went with that.NoahLot@noahlot
Thanks so much for this thread!
If Pure Warriors is next, I’ve been leveling up Brawl. Don’t use any of these in SR, but Brawl seems to outperform the Lockdowns for me in regular missions for me. Don’t have Ironhide yet.
Which arm accessory is recommended for Brawl, Cannon (Damage) vs Launchers (Explosive Force)?
Which one from the leaders and energon fueled should I upgrade? Any help on good accessories as well please?GrimLockdown@grimlockdown
Energon Fueled is easy: Energon Grimlock. Most useful accessories are those with weapon cooldown and incendiary rounds.
As for the Leaders it’s either Grey Slam Grimlock or Dark Megatron.Pinokio@papakarlo
Wow, great work! Which can be done only by those, who playing ABTF from day 1 and played all those squads many many times! And not so lazy, like me :) I had this idea two years ago, but was too lazy analyze hundreds events from my list, and last years I even stoped my “Events list” so actually need to dig forum hardly … But not anymore! Thank you!
Next one I will need advice for will be The Iconic Transformers. Epic Optimus or Energon Bumblebee? Upgrade and weapons advice and which one better please?
