    At this point, with all due respect, I need more practice against the big 4 than against rogues. If it can win nationals / worlds, I need to test against it.

    Anyone used the new update yet? It's pretty nice, I got 10 of those 5-card boosters with my tokens and pulled a FA Juniper and SR Garchomp.

    I am very impressed with the new update. For those that don't know, you can now buy 5 card booster packs (Any BW set) for 95 tokens and a few select theme decks for 500 tokens. These cards can't be traded. I have only opened a few of the 5 card packs but from the looks of it your 95 tokens will get you 3 commons, 1 uncommon and 1 rare/ultra rare. If you add up the free cards given from PTCGO it's really quite impressive:

    - The daily login, giving a free random booster every 5 days as well as bonus tokens (which now equal more free cards)
    - The various free theme decks like Power Relay, Basic Orange, and BW Red, Blue and Green
    - The packs available in the trainer challenge (totaling 45 free packs once fully complete)
    - The option to buy (half) packs from tokens

    The developers have given new players a great base to start from. I have two accounts, my main account and my free account. On my free account I simply log in, receive my bonus packs/Tokens and log out. Having done this along with acquiring the trainer challenge packs I have a fully competitive eelektrik deck and a lot of staple cards to start building for other decks. Good job PTCGO, you may have some bugs and flaws but you're heading in the right direction :)

    Gelatin So soft and jiggly.

    It's a shame that Eelektrik won't be competitive for much longer now.

    Also, these half packs do not guarantee you a Rare.

    I got like 30 or so half-packs. My pulls weren't bad- SR Chomp, both ACE SPECs from PF, and a RA Thundy EX- but unfortunately, since they're all untradable and things I don't need, it didn't do me very good.

    I've never tried the half-packs. The best I've pulled is probably 2 SR cards.

    The Double-Click bug is gone! WOOOOHOOOOOO
    That bug annoyed me to no end.

    I really like the idea of the 95 token half packs as opposed to the previously mentioned 200 token full packs (although these can still be coming). It allows players, especially newer players, to get cards faster and spread sets better.

    I have yet to buy some, I see no point in buying any pre-plasma blast. All my tokens will go towards Plasma Blast packs in hopes of pulling VirizionEX and GenesectEX.

    wouldn't you be able to, if you have the tradeable versions from pulling them in packs, trade them and keep the non tradeable ones to yourself?

    Well, yes, and for some that's true. I just don't need Chomp in amy way though, and getting people to bite on ACE Specs is hard.

    ah ok. I gotcha now. really? I thought everyone would want one of each ace spec just to have, guess not.

    Most people do, is the problem. Nobody needs a "playset" so the demand is low even if they're valuable and rare.

    Is there a reason why I have to uninstall and reinstall the program every time I want to go on PTCGO? It always says that I "need to wait for the refresher to be patched". I've waited for over an hour before, and it never does anything.

    Any suggestions?

    Packs? How do you get packs from the trainer challenge? The only benefit I thought you received from the trainer challenge was tokens and deck unlocks?

    If you get 30,000 points or 4 stars with a trainer it will unlock 1 random booster pack. If you do this with every trainer in a certain league you will unlock 3 more bonus booster packs. 3 leagues 12 trainers = 36 packs + 3 bonus packs for completing each league = 9 will leave you with a potential total of 45 free packs. Change the settings to expert difficulty as this will give you more points and allow you to clear it quicker.

    Quick warning though, I think the trainer challenge has been tweaked since the last update and is a bit more difficult on expert settings so this will take a fair few hours. Hope this helped =)

    Hey everyone, so i was playing the ptcgo today and was thinking, to myself of course, how awesome would it be if they brought that to the app store? I dont know if there was/is talks of it, but it would be awesome to have it on our mobile devices!!!! What is everyone's take on it? What are the rumors? Please no animosity towards myself nor others, no need for it.

    The odds of nintendo developing game software for a third party's hardware is zero.
    The only way you'd EVER see a mobile version is if they made a 3ds app.
