New Bots: Red Alert & Runamuck
You may have caught a glimpse of our newest bots in the pipeline in our Twitch stream last week (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/517440280 for those who missed it)
These two G1 bots will be joining the Earth Wars family at the end of the current saga.
Red Alert is the best security director ever, and it's largely down to the sheer levels of paranoia that are part and parcel of this hair-trigger Autobot's make-up.
Nothing, not even the faintest whiff of exhaust residue or whisper of ignition circuitry, escapes his attention, and everything - and everyone - is a potential threat.
Dedicated, driven, and very fast, Red Alert nevertheless makes others edgy around him, concerned that what he sees as trenchant and necessary is just plain rash.
A two-lane terror, Runamuck likes nothing more than to scream down the highway - often against the flow of traffic - and see who blinks first. His freewheeling, frenzied approach scatters friend and foe alike to the four winds, as they know that if it comes to a head-on collision, Runamuck won't flinch.
To relax and unwind, Runamuck likes nothing better than to curl up in a junkyard or auto-wrecking plant. His friction rifle increases the kinetic energy of the target's molecules, and any subsequent motion on their part is most often incendiary.
New 5-Star Bots
The newest 5-Star bots are heading your way! They are scheduled to be released with a content update this coming Thursday.
Additionally, some older 5-Star bots have even received a buff/improvement! Read below for further details on what’s coming to you with both the new and old 5-Star bots.
First Aid & Reflector
Winners of the last community poll. Unmissable!
Hot Spot & Tantrum
The best Warrior bots now stronger than ever
The shield duration increases by 0.6 secs per technique level (previously 0.3 secs) for all star version going from 5 secs at level 1 to 10.4 secs at level 10.
The reflective shield has a 60% percentage of reflection for the 5 star version. This means your bot will only receive 40% of the damage while under this shield.
Sandstorm & Octone
The second Triple Changers to make it to the 5-Star class!
We have increased their health for all star levels
Goldfire & Ramjet
Blazing Charge to burn them to the ground!

We’ve increased the ability range too!
The following old 5-Star bots will receive a buff/improvement also:
Windblade & Divebomb
The range of the Ability extended for all star version.
Added a protective shield upon landing for all star version.

Q: What will happen with the current batch?
A: The current batch will be added to the shop at the same time as the release of new 5* bots as a Legacy Crystal.
Bug Fixes / Improvements
The following bug fix went live with a content push last Thursday:
Each level increase of Defensive Rush will now increase the shield duration by 0.54 secs (0.3 secs previously) bringing it to a maximum of 10.86 secs at level 10. This change will affect Jumpstream/Scrapper and Pipes/Headstrong.
There will be no stream this Thursday.
Stay tuned for information about the next stream!
