The Mission Briefing is over. The future is at Hand!

Announcing the next 1C Open Card candidate! We’ve long wanted to ban Mission Briefing due to its extreme draw power. This wish combined with the fact that it made many draw cards obsolete. Any deck with Battlemasters, Weaponizers, Quintesson Specialists, and the like had an immediate advantage in card draw with Mission Briefing in their decks – and the very existence of the card limited design space greatly. However, the white/green nature of the card was desirable to certain deck comps, so we didn’t want to simply ban Mission Briefing without some sort of replacement. And Hand of Adaptus is that card.

Put some Junk in your jank with 0.2.4’s Junkions!

Everyone’s likely cleaning up all the post-holiday junk, but don’t throw this last bit in the trash! We’ve been teasing their arrival since the beginning of the Waste|Lands Public Beta, and they’ve finally arrived. Junkions in the #transformerstcg bring a myriad of surprising – and often, confusing and mystifying – abilities to the battlefield! And they await your download in the Waste|Lands 0.2.4 Public Beta! For starters, check out their peerless leader, Wreck-Gar, The Big Cheese! Now With More Cheese!

Wreck-Gar, The Big Cheese! Now With More Cheese!
Cheesy, to be sure – but you’ll want an extra helping.

Since most of the Junkions and some of the stratagems in Waste|Lands use the new station and Vehicle mechanics, we thought we’d put together an illustrated guide to help. This guide goes through the steps to play stations and Vehicles, in most scenarios of play.

So, what’s next in the Waste|Lands Public Beta? Not much! Already, 153 of the 160 cards in Waste|Lands have been revealed. One final reveal phase remains – then the march to release. If you’re looking at all the cards in Waste|Lands and would like to send us your feedback, use the form! The next couple of weeks will be spent on refinements towards the final 0.2.5 reveal. Stay tuned!

What did the Transformers TCG community say in the latest survey?

Recently, Brian Alan of Wreck ‘N Rule fame released to the Transformers TCG community a survey on their experiences in the current game. The trove of data that was returned by the community demands analysis and response! Here’s what that data means to Team Bayformers and the allied crossplay community – and the changes it leads to.

But be prepared going into the article. It’s an extremely hefty read.

October 2021 Survey and Analysis

A recently issued survey for the #transformerstcg community promised an updated finger-on-the-pulse for the players. Sadly, it’s been over a year since the game’s cancellation, and a question quickly became apparent:

“How many responses are we actually going to get?”

Despite that, the return rate was nearly 70% of the January 2021 responses! There are still many players that are active and passionate enough to see the game continue into the far future. Moreover, the survey results were interesting enough to justify this formal response and analysis from the Team.

Here’s the long and the short of it: We hear your voices, and we’re making adjustments. Together, players and creators can shape the future of the #transformerstcg!
