    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.

    @abt I hope too

    @deindiaan can you inform me of another time where there wasn’t a new bot released for a month or two just as a heads up

    @john12345

    Wait but where’s the Chinese New Year accessories?

    @john12345

    We’ve had a much longer period with no new bots released, at least a year!

    @deindiaan  Maybe that was somewhere in the beginning of ABT, but I can’t remember that there were no new bots released in the lasts years for such a long period of time.

    @deindiaan

    It was some years ago indeed. Think skywarp or acid storm was the first one to be released back then.

    The event titles are now simply TF names.

    John
    @john12345

    @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

    moi
    @moifirst

    @grimlockdown It looks like R/E won’t even invest any effort anymore  in thinking of a catchy event name. I suppose that soon there will be an event called The Grand Finale or something like that and that will be the end of ABT.

    John
    @john12345

    @moifirst what about war passes are they just gonna leave it on season 6 with no timer and never update the game?

    ABT
    @abt

    @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.

    @abt greggers hasn’t been active in over like a year now

    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.

    Greg was here few days ago, investigating problem with “shakers” bug.

    John
    @john12345

    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 2.10.0.1, so there was no update (not even a soft-patch pushed directly).

    @john12345

    @abt  I guess if there’s no update this month (there will be later for season 7) then I don’t see them adding in characters for a while although they could be holding off development for something big like a new mode or something

    John
    @john12345

    @abt how do we get in contact with greggers

    John
    @john12345

    It seems that the new event Private Sideswipe has not been renamed yet something seems off

    @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.

    John
    @john12345

    I noticed how they skipped ver 2.9.0 for some reason where they planning on releasing a character that January but held off?

    John
    @john12345

    New update soon hopefully we see if where getting any new non prime pass tfs

    (Hard updates in BOLD)

    Comments:

    • Biggest update in years (2.0.x) came out Mar 27, 2020 (almost exactly a year ago!)
    • Starting in Version 2.x, there’s roughly one update per month happening on the last week of the month.
    • There was no update in the last week of December 2020 and no 2.9.x version either.
    • There was no update in the last week of February 2021 which would have been 2.11.x.

    We will find out in the next 7 days whether there will be Season 7…  ::fingers crossed::

    @john12345

    @abt if there’s no update the games over but if there is there’s still hope I really want a ver 1.12.0 just to see the game continue because if not then it’s over
