As many of you know DeNA has their TCG style Transformer themed game called Transformers: Legends which has grown to be quite popular. You may also remember that over the course of the last month the developers have been releasing weekly additions to the game, otherwise known as episodes, which introduced new scenarios to play through and even the game's first PvP events.
Well we have been talking with DeNA and the game's developers and have partnered up with them to hold a rather cool event where you, our readers, will get to decide which Transformers will be involved in an upcoming Fan Favorite episode of Transformers: Legends. You'll be able to offer up your selection of which Transformers you want to see in this upcoming fan influenced episode.
However, before everyone starts getting crazy and suggesting some of the most popular Transformers in the franchise's universe, there are a few rules that everyone has to follow. Firstly, whoever your choices are must be from the first generation of Transformers. You'll be able to suggest up to 3 Autobots and 4 Decepticons that you want to appear in this upcoming episode. The choices will remain hidden for most of this selection process so as to not have other people's choices influence your own picks.
The second rule, which is pretty important, is that it can't be well-known Transformers. This is for a few reasons but mostly because they are already in the game and have important parts to play already. This is about bringing in some of the lesser known but cool Transformers into the action.
Here are the official rules that everyone needs to read before picking their choices:
1) We’re going to pick 3 Autobots and 4 Decepticons. Those with the highest number of votes win. 2) Let’s avoid the main characters that have already been featured. This includes:
• Optimus Prime • Megatron • Bumblebee • Ironhide • Jazz • Starscream • Thundercracker • Shockwave • Soundwave • Trypticon • Metroplex • The Dinobots (Grimlock, Slug, Sludge, Snarl, Swoop) • Omega Supreme • Unicron (we have bigger plans for him) • Rodimus / Hot Rod • Ultra Magnus • Galvatron
3) No Triple Changers, Six Changers • Examples: Astrotrain, Skorponok, Sixshooter, etc.
4) No combined-form of Combiners or combined Duo Changers (though we can use the individual characters) • Devastator, Predaking, Bruticus, Fortress Maximus etc.
5) Make sure they are from the G1 universe, the cartoon, movie and comics are all fair game! 6) The final list is subject to Hasbro’s approval
To ensure that everyone's choices are kept secret till near the end we have set up a quick little form for you to fill out. It'll take you only a couple of minutes to make your picks and submit them. We will tally them up and reveal the winning Transformers who will appear in an upcoming Fan Favorite episode. There are sure to be some surprises as well. Be sure to think up some of those really cool but obscure Autobots and Decepticons!
The official form to fill out is linked below. If you haven't picked up the game you can do so off of Google Play for free as well. You'll have about a week or so to get your picks in so don't wait too long! The Fan Favorite episode is planned to launch November 7th, 2013 but results need to be in way before then.
