    That link is in this sub-forums for a while now. But thank you for re-posting it.

    Concerning mixing autobots and decepticons. Many decks synergize well within the same faction, but many other decks work just as well mixing both. Dual Primes is a perfect example. So is Cosmos/Nemesis. Take no offence to what I am about to say for I truly do not mean to be offensive - I suggest getting used to abandoning the antiquated concept of only one faction sided. You lose out on potentially powerful and/or fun filled decks. Though this is a transformers game, it is by first most a Trading Card Game.

    I think with how much lore there is in Transformers already. I'm very comfortable focusing just on the game aspect. It seems like there isn't going to be a TCG universe with a separate story for me to care about, so in my head there is some eternal conflixt between Primus and Unicron and they are summoning different versions of characters from across the multiverse to fight each other. In that vein I don't care about sticking to factions, I have a lot more fun in trying to solve the "puzzle" of the game and find interesting interactions. Like Cosmos and Nemesis hanging out together, or Flamewar supplementing cars and stuff. There's so much to try and put together and figure out, I don't want to artificially limit myself as I'm learning.

    In Wave 2 there are some more faction specific battle cards, that will encourage the decision making to trade off sticking with a faction vs playing the best tribal/interaction you got. But what makes the game fun is making that decision, I'm glad the game designers didn't make it for us.

    I decided not to post my 3rd tanks game, I just don't think there was anything to learn from it (I lost, but similar to my previous 2 losses). I decided to share Dinobots last night instead!

    I wouldn't mind actually getting a chance to play! I'm still pretty new to both Octgn and the TCG (though I think I have a firm grasp of the rules!)

    My name is robert.newman12 on discord, and I'm Cosmic Hunter on Octgn as well.

    I'm honestly not always around, but usually I'm home by 6:00 pm EST U.S Time.

    Is there a way to play against the computer solo? It seems like these all require two players.

    No it's just a simulator, there's not computer AI.
