A Comment on Backflip Studios
In the past week, news spread about restructuring at Backflip Studios that has lead to a closure of parts of the studio. We want to use this space to give out a clear message that those changes at Backflip do not have any impact on Transformers: Earth Wars or on you, our players.
Space Ape has been running TF:EW, from its development to the day-to-day operation, together with Hasbro, for over 3 years and we will continue doing so. There are no plans other than to stay with you in this game we all love for years to come.
We are working with Hasbro on exciting new features and content for 2020 and are excited to share more as soon as we can.
Here are the spooky contents you will see in the game this weekend.
Spooky Challenge Battle
All claws and jaws
Their fangs ready to clang
In the shadows these creeps rattle
Awaiting for you in the next Challenge Battle!
A special Halloween themed challenge battle will be available via in-game newsfeed later this week. Don’t forget to play this special battle to get a taste of the most frightening challenge, spiced up with Simon Furman’s spooky dialog!
A Halloween bundle: Trick & Treat Bundle which contains the following crystals will be available in the shop this weekend to get you in a spooky mood!
Slash / Rippersnapper
Inferno / Rodimus Unicronus
Rodimus Prime / Motormaster

Do you miss the original Earth Wars music theme or you prefer the G1 music? Then it’s a good news for you!
After a content push this Thursday, you will be able to switch between 3 music themes (the original music, the classic G1 music and G.I. Joe music) in the setting menu.
Change the music anytime depending on your mood!
New 5-Star bot poll
It’s about time to decide the next 5-Star Bots! If you’d like to have a say in which 5-Star Bots you see in the game next, make sure to cast your vote on your favourite bot!
Tap on the Vote Now! button below to open a Community Poll where you can vote for a character to be part of the next 5-Star Crystal batch!
The survey will be closed on Tuesday, November 5th at 10:00 UTC
Please don’t vote more than once or your votes may be nutrified.
Extremely powerful bots haven't been included in the poll in order to keep a balanced meta game, but there are still 33 bots you can vote for!
Here are the issues reported that we've been investigating:
Inspiring Charge effect does not apply to bots, when Optimus Prime/Megatron has started their ability while those bots were deploying.
Improvements to how the following bots behave if Inspiring Charge or Battle Orders abilities start while they are using their ability:
Slash & Rippersnaper
Punch & Counterpunch
Snarl & Hun-gurrr
Sentius Magnus & Sentius Malus
Cheetor & Blackarachnia
Laser Optimus & Armada Megatron
Slash & Rippersnaper still chase outpost bots after finishing their ability.
Punch & Counterpunch does not follow Inspiring Charge
Bug Fixes / Improvements
The following bug fixes/improvements are coming to the game with a content push this Thursday.
We have increased the area of effect for Hound V.A.M.P. and Soundwave H.I.S.S. Glass Gas and Targeting effect. This should also help to keep the number of targets affected in the area more consistent.
Gold Cybertronian Charge Power Core can now inflict up to 21% more damage if uninterrupted. (Previously 15%)
