This is just a place to post about anyone’s thoughts of the game dying
Don’t get to nervous when there’s no new bot released for a few weeks, this doesn’t mean that the game is dying. I actually like there’s no new bot at the moment, now I can use some crystals to upgrade some items. Normally almost all of my crystals are spent on leveling bots.
@john12345 We will find out after March is over when War Pass Season 6 ends. There are many squads (Gestalt, Noughties, etc..) that have room for more TFs, so I’m hoping we will get more TFs eventually. I’m also hoping that some of the PrimePass-only TFs (there’s 12 of them now) will be available in the Token Exchange someday.
It was some years ago indeed. Think skywarp or acid storm was the first one to be released back then.
@deindiaan I don’t really count the early days of the game back when challenge events where new but sometime like 2017 to now also where are the Chinese New Year accessories at seems a bit off I’m guessing they stopped support and didn’t bother to put them in but there still making these challenge events so
@john12345 Season 6 timer is still counting down (25 days left at the time of this writing). I think we will truly find out by the end of March as the next update for “Season 7” would be due by then.
At first I could care less if the game ended as it’s been a bit of time sink (probably added up to days, weeks!?) for so much of the past 6+ years for me. However, now I hope R/E keep the lights on a bit longer as it would be sadder if the game is gone. I can choose to play or not to play if the game still exists, but if it’s over, then there’s nothing to show for after all these years of playing.
The game’s FB page has not been updated since Sept 2020 (almost 6 months), so that’s another sign R/E is not invested to promote the game. I wonder if we can check with greggers to get some inside scoop on what’s in store for the future.Pinokio@papakarlo
To OP existing TF’s to 25 lvl we need many years. Even if they stop making new TF’s, we have what to do. And runing old event’s for old squads – cost zero for them imo. Cloud server cost some monthly fee, but not much. Many players buying Prime pass, someone buying gems or event tokens. Till money income more then their fees for server, salary etc. – this game will be alive imo. And they can’t fired those employe, who creating TF’s, because they need them to make new Prime pass TF’s. Without Prime pass they will cut money income dramatically. But even without new Prime pass, new TF’s, new territory, this game can be running by 1 expirienced person, like Greg imo. Even without coders, because coders making new bugs, but without new updates – no new bugs :D So I think it’s just temporary, that we don’t have new “free” TF’s. Maybe those, who making new TF’s just very busy in other project, which gives more money, who knows.
@john12345 Greg was here few days ago, investigating problem with “shakers” bug.
I just noticed something exiting today. The loading screen icon changed which most likely means a new update this March? Who knows?
greggers hasn’t been active in over like a year now
Actually, it shows here that his account was active just 2 weeks ago.
He also responded to a bug post here less than 3 weeks ago.
I agree with @papakarlo. Even without introducing any new TFs, there are plenty for 99% players to do to overpower, accessorize, earn sparks for their existing TFs. However, that can get old/boring at some point. Especially if there are some concern that all of the effort put into advancing his/her progress could potentially be moot once it all ends.
Personally, I hope they keep the game going. Even without adding new TF or content, you can still play (actively or casually). Hopefully the revenue from PrimePass and players that click on ads is sufficient to keep it going. They probably have some skeleton crew maintaining the game right now. I wouldn’t be surprise if that staff is maintaining half a dozen games simultaneously.
The change in loading splash screen is triggered by the calendar. The version remained the same at 126.96.36.199, so there was no update (not even a soft-patch pushed directly).
It seems that the new event Private Sideswipe has not been renamed yet something seems offPako@pako
Maybe you are overthinking, maybe not. Are you enjoying the game? If so, keep at it. Or enjoy the “no new bot” time off.
I noticed how they skipped ver 2.9.0 for some reason where they planning on releasing a character that January but held off?
New update soon hopefully we see if where getting any new non prime pass tfs
