TF-Prototype was invited to Jagex’s closed beta program to test out Transformers Universe. Online web play we seemed to lag with but the newly released client played great. Some technical issues were experienced such as client bugging out and you could log back in due to still being logged in… Lol. This was an easy fix just by logging into the web site and choosing to play on site rather than in client to correct issue.
To celebrate out July 4th weekend Jagex is opening the beta program to everyone. There will be double experience granted all week and contests with prizes worth over $75,000. With all this in mind, we figured we would help give you a fighting chance…
Autobot / Basic Walkthrough: When you first start off (based on closed beta and this may change by morning) you will go through a simple tutorial to help you get familiar with controls and get you to the Autobot headquarters. Fight your way there and pay close attention to instructions given. Once inside you will have enough Relics to purchase another recruit (Spoiler: They will give you a 3rd as a gift) and this will complete your starting lineup. A demolisher, a soldier, and a medic. They have many more classes than just these as well but to get you in the field and killing some Decepticons we will start with Monsoon the Soldier.
First thing you should know is you have shields and spark. Both refill over time and spark can basically be considered physical damage.
You will have three weapons and use keys 1-3 to switch. Weapon 1 you use simple by right clicking (to lock on to target) and left clicking to fire (while holding right click to maintain lock). This will charge up its secondary firing capabilities and every weapon has one and is quite unique. Weapon 1 will make health (HP+) rain down in a circle on you and your allies.
Weapon 2 will be your grenade launcher and when built up will immobilize the enemy letting you or your team move in for the kill. Some times it is best to have this charged and wait to use in case an enemy tries to run, Monsoon is not the fastest bot on his feet.
Weapon 3 is a spark thirsty melee based Ax with a powerful secondary. Use this when enemy shields are depleted.
Now that you know all this you are a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield but to be truly successful you must master you items as well. You will use keys 4-6 to activate items or actives on your bots and cons. Active 4 will increase your damage output and is great for finishing blows to eat through the final signs of any spark. Active 5 is a defense active and will repair you. Active 6 is a speed boost and will help negate the effects of trying to aim the chain gun (weapon 1).
You will also be able to equip mines, an item used for whatever you choose (offense,defense, or even utility) and when your profile hits level 10 you will get your 1st power core slot. Everything is highly customizable and has very addicting gameplay make this one a winner.
