BTW, is it me or did the Transformer timers got shorter? The only way we succeded is by the rush strategy.
i thought so too. we always rush it, but this time it was close, when it really shouldn't have been.
but i noticed that the worker drones seem to die much faster than they used to. i usually hold the first transformer, and just handle and interrupt the up to 5 workers who show up. when we did it yesterday they were all dead when the shield was down with only a second or two to spare.
