The Transformers Forged To Fight team starts May off with the following announcement across their official social media channels:
Hi, Commanders! This month, we’re excited to share a series of awesome concept art pieces with you. Today, we’re pleased to showcase this Bumblebee concept art. Is Bumblebee your favorite bot?
Check out the attached artwork, remember to download the game for free from your preferred app store and then sound off with your fellow commanders on the 2005 boards!
I still find it so strange that Netflix decided to buy this game. I wish it were Paramount instead since they have the movie rights and cartoon rights to Earthspark and such. Honestly removing the bayverse bots does me a favor since I'm not a fan of them but it eould have been nice to potentially see Bumblebee movie and RotB designs in the future as well as Earthspark designs but I don't see that happening with Netflix in charge. I'm also extremely warru of how much they're actually going to support this game. I wouldn't be surprised if they only add a couple more characters and then it's dead again within a year– especially with the stupid Netflix account requirement. I guess time will tell.
Can anyone actually unlock a core mastery? I bought the module in the store but the game is not recognizing it.

Ok so I just got my first 2 star bot and have progressed far into the first campaign, but I have a little issue. Whenever I want to choose a nickname so I can join a team and fight arenas, it displays a message saying I no longer have Internet access, when I actually have. Does anyone else have this problem and if so, is there a solution?
So, after getting the first 2 star bot during the first campaing, I realized I now had access to a 2 star bot shop (Or it could be because i leveled up my account, idk), so i'm guessing (hoping, actually) that you will get access to a 3 star shop after making more progress on the story?
Been playing Earth Wars since FTF ended but am enjoying this Netflix revival – it sure runs a helluva lot smoother now than when Kabam left it to die. It's weird starting over with 1 star bots though. I want my 5 Star Megatronus back lol
Its fun getting back into this game and Deadend is awesome
Agreed. I don't really know if the more stylized series (Animated, EarthSpark, Prime, Cyberverse, etc.) would work in this style. I think the various anime series (Headmasters, RID2001, Unicron Trilogy, etc.) and the Cybertron game trilogy would be the best fits.
They forgot a Bayverse bot on a screenshot. Oops.
Kidding aside, wonder why Bayverse was removed. Issues with Paramount, I guess?
If they plan on continuing this, they should consider other universes like Legacy is doing.
Been playing for a few day, and thoughts:
Characters: Despite the addition of Chromia and Dead End, the removal of the Bayverse bots really makes the combat encounters repetitive due to a lower variety of bots. Would’ve been nice if they also added a few more bots to balance it out, but hopefully we get more in the future. Also, this would’ve been a great opportunity for them to refresh the character models to be based on the modern generations ones, seeing as almost every character in the game has been redone in a singular aesthetic since rather than the hodgepodge of design influences currently seen.
Game design: It would be nice if it was easier to unlock bots, as after the first six levels you seemingly can only buy bots (and you don’t get much of the bot-buying currency) or get one by 100%ing a chapter, which leads on to my next complaint. Exploring alternate routes post-chapter 1 is near-impossible for a long time after first beating it, as they feature 3* bots of a rating at least three times as much as the lowest route, and after having almost completed the first campaign I still don’t have access to those which means I can only do the basic route for the time being. Blocking is also sometimes a bit slow to respond.
Overall a fairly fun (if mindless) game with a few flaws but nothing game breaking.
Also, I have an issue in that the game is preventing me from playing the Fog of War thing, with a red lock being in the corner yet no error message as to why that is. Can anyone help?
So, a question for those who can actually play this game: does the fog of war have any story, and if it does, what is it?
It's for the mastery stuff but that doesn't become available until level 18, had the same glitch on my end, once you hit 18, hit that tab, then go to mastery and spend your first point and it should go away
Does anybody know how to get rid of this number on my XP Bar?

I assumed it was for a message or something on my profile. I click it…notjing just brings up the profile page. No unread message in the mail box or anything, no unclaimed items, no missing gifts etc… No idea wtf it's for.
Honestly, I don't really care that the Bayformers bots are missing (I personally can't stand Bayformers (Michael Bay SOMEHOW managed to make a version of Jetfire, my favorite Transformer, that turns into one of the coolest planes to ever exist (though I think his VF-1S and space shuttle modes are his best two; an SR-71 would be a better fit for Silverbolt or Nightcruz IMO (and now I want a RID2001 Nightcruz with a Silverbolt color scheme)), the only version of Jetfire I can really say I hate (as both a Jetfire fan AND a Unicron Trilogy fan), and the less said about what he thinks about Arcee, the better) and would rather have them have Unicron Trilogy bots instead). What I care about is that A. All my progress would be gone if I started and B. I need a Netflix account to play it. I gave up on Netflix five years ago after I found out that a certain anime reboot/adaptation I'd been excited for REALLY wasn't up to my tastes and I felt burned by them (I don't want to go into more specifics; I did some things I really regret because of how mad I was about it back when I was an angry, hormonal teenager and even now, when it concluded back in February of this year, I'm still mad about it (even more than I was when I first started getting angry about it, in fact)), so now the fact that I need an account for a service I really dislike is pretty disappointing (then again, I still use Twitter even though I think Elon Musk is an idiot who's totally unfit to be the CEO of anything). Maybe I'll explain the situation to my parents and see if they'll let me use one of their accounts.
I haven't played this in forever. Kind of forgot about it. Eh I'll give it another go. Shame about no progress carrying over
I just downloaded it . ( it’s not available in japan though so I had to put my vpn on ) and it’s nice to see but yeah no way in hell am I playing it from the start . I had every bot in all 5 star classes fully ranked up and maxed out . Way too much time put in to start from the beginning . Nice to see dead end and chromia though . Good fun game , I recommend it if you haven’t played before . I hate the bay verse designs so don’t care about them not being in the game
I'm just going to wait until there's a public announcement from Kabam, and offers a compensation migration package for old players.
Yes, they're releasing the previous bots that they were supposed to (Chromia, DeadEnd), however Bayverse bots are gone.
The game no longer has adverts or micro-transactions
Shame, Bayverse Sideswipe and Crosshairs were two I would have loved to see
