Get Rolling with Rolling Actions!

The new Rolling Actions in Wave BFB Waste|Lands have been getting a huge pop in the community! Already players are talking about possibilities for play and constructing Rolling Action decks. But a few have asked, “How do you play these new Actions?” Check our guide on Rolling Actions above. With the right setup, a player can set up a strategy to take advantage of a carefully placed array of Rolling Actions to achieve victory!

This week’s got even more surprises coming for players tuned into the Waste|Lands Public Beta. The reception to the 0.2.1 testing phase has set records! This leads to the next phase – 0.2.2 – and all-new cards and mechanics that the community has yet to see and test! Check back this weekend for the still-developing future of the #transformerstcg.

Take the Shot; don’t Lie in Wait in Season Two!

We’ve revealed Rolling Actions to the world in the Wave BFB Waste|Lands 0.2.1 Public Beta – and getting a ton of positive feedback! With that, we’re going to peer into the months ahead to help our competitive players prepare for the future.

World|Strike Tournament Season One is still rolling strong going into its Encounter 4 event. However, there lies a new Season beyond that: Waste|Lands Tournament Season Two! And two powerful cards will be banned: Peace Through Tyranny and Security Checkpoint. These excessive, swingy cards have bent the meta for too long, and we’re replacing them next Season. In their place comes two entirely new Rolling Actions: Lie in Wait and Take the Shot! Depending on the community’s reception, these cards may be simply Seasonal replacements. With success, they may become something more permanent within the Team Bayformers competitive community. We’ll see how they perform in the new Season! In the spirit of community, we’ll be offering these cards as PTT and SecCheck replacements for any group to use. Any competitive scene is free to use the cards as replacements as they see fit.

And what’s that strange wave symbol all about? Only the future – a singular future – can tell…

A Legendary Waste|Lands spoiler featuring Tread Bolt!

What’s that up in the sky? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It’s… a plane! But this one acts a lot like Nemesis Prime, Dark Clone and also hits like a truck! Friend of the community Legendary Void brings to Waste|Lands spoiler season a deck tech video, where he takes what seems like an irrelevant mass of cards and turns it into a synergistic typhoon of Horri-Bull, new stratagem Code Push, and new character Tread Bolt, Devil of the Deep Blue Sky!

How about a closer look at the intrepid Autobot plane? Here’s a bayformers.net exclusive look!

One Year After the #transformerstcg Cancellation

This happened a year ago. It’s still hard to believe, even 12 months later. The months following the #transformerstcg cancellation were some of the roughest months of gaming we’ve experienced. And many of the relationships we had forged surrounding the game forever changed. But, even amid the strife and mourning, we knew there was the chance for something new – something special – something that was yet to be discovered. And months after the cancellation, we’re only looking forward to the future of this game.

And the future of this game continues to arrive. Till all are one!

Video: Megatron vs. Tidal Wave

Could it be a Waste|Lands reveal video? It is! Thanks to friends of the community Dave and Claire from the Energon Hustlers for this sneak peek into Megatron, Sharkticon Tyrant! Watch what happens when Tidal Wave attacks his Aquarium of Death. This one combines cards from TROP Phase One, The Ark Wave One, World|Strike, and Waste|Lands!

Want to get a closer look at Megatron, Sharkticon Tyrant? Here’s a bayformers.net exclusive closer look at the 0.2.1 version.

Reveal: Decepticon Wingthing, Loyal, Lethal Cohort

“It ain’t nothing but a Wingthing!” That’s what your #transformerstcg opponent might say when Decepticon Wingthing emerges on your team, but we guarantee your Soundwave deck will be grateful for his batty presence.

Let’s start with that alt mode ability. Stealth while untapped is always nice (and is a staple with many cassettes). However, that move damage clause will fire more than you think with the right deck composition! Not only will Recover Cassette repair Wingthing to full when he ejects again from Soundwave or Blaster, but he will also lend a hand with a moved damage counter from a teammate. Obviously, Wingthing getting KO’d will also move damage, but a handy I Still Function! or Involuntary Promotion will also do extra work here.

The bot mode ability also provides some spice! So many cards place cards on top of decks (Plan abilities, Incoming Transmission, Mining Pick, etc., etc., etc.), but likely the most relevant is Soundwave himself and his related battle card Intercept Communications. Wingthing may actually bring this underutilized star card back into the rotation!

Do you think Decepticon Wingthing is fly? Do his abilities leave you all wrapped up in tape? Come let us know in the Waste|Lands Public Beta! You can download the Beta cards, provide Beta feedback, and even join our Discord, where the majority of testing is occurring. See you on the Waste|Lands!

Congratulations to Brettasaurus!

Encounter 3 has closed, and Brettasaurus has taken the crown! Never sleep on the Wave 5 meta – Brett’s evil 3-headed Quake deck took everyone by surprise and won the day. Congratulations also to Ogar for taking 2nd Place in Encounter 3 with his equally intimidating Skybull deck. Our competitive players are much more likely in the future to prepare for the meta decks of the past – and it’ll be interesting to see how well they adapt!

We’re eager to announce our next event’s details, and Encounter 4 combines gameplay between World|Strike and Ark Wave One. Also up for reveal: an all-new competitive format! Registration for Encounter 4 and the details of that new format are coming later this week. Prepare for an all-new competitive gameplay experience!
