Game News: Optimus Prime's life hangs in the balance in this weekend's "Earth Wars" event "Heavy Mettle"

Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong!

Optimus Prime’s life is in danger. Will the Autobots be able to save him?
Also, in this week's event, you can earn large amounts of resources to get you started well into HQ16!

Heavy Mettle
Unable to heal from battle injuries, Optimus Prime’s spark is rapidly fading.

As his time shortens, the possibility of his death weakens the Autobot’s morale.

But not all hope is lost, as one of the legendary Prime Cores may be Optimus Prime’s last chance for survival.

Under Investigation
Here are some of the issues reported that we've been investigating:

The battle button has to be pressed twice whilst scouting
We've had reports of players stating that they have to press the battle button twice when scouting to enter a battle. This issue has been noted and is under investigation.

Some devices aren't loading the correct quality canvas
Some high end devices aren't loading the correct quality canvas for the amount of memory the device has. We're now investigating the issue and a fix should come soon for the affected devices.

These are just examples of the reports that we've received from you and we continue to work hard to improve your experience with the game every day.
