People complain about this game being a cash grab, but it CAN be played AND won for free if you're willing to have some patience. Sure you may not win top tier card right away, but I've managed to get at least one full card set each mission without paying a dime.

If you don't have any, or have very few Level 4 and 5 Cards, play missions and cash in metals until you can construct an All Grimlock and All Starscream deck. These are the two strongest Level 3 cards.

Make sure to sell any leftover cards, or use them as upgrade material.

Upgrade your robot and alt cards (or evolve cards) completely before transcanning or evolving to get the max effect.

Don't play to win, play to get materials. With about 10,000 deck power decks, it'll take about 150 battle cubes to break into one of the reward cards. Instead of trying to win each battle, play until you start losing battle cubes, then wait until next week's mission. Playing this way I can typically earn 50-80 battle cubes per episode if I don't play to win.

The same is true for energon chains. You can typically get two free chains per mission and need four to guarantee enough evolve cards for a decent card.

The new ruby medal system can get you access to episode cards to beef up your decks.

If by luck you win an episode card from gold episode medals, you may want to consider trying to place. The same is true if you can earn the 2,000,000 points needed to get a lower-tiered card.

After scanning for bosses starts to generate tougher battles, stop scanning and leave your device on the episode screen. As other players need help, bosses will appear on screen for you to fight. Let those other chumps burn through their battle cubes.

Never, ever EVER use more than one battle cube per fight, unless it's a boss in a campaign episode.

Try playing this way and you won't have to spend a dime and might actually enjoy the game.

It's the time factor that kills it for me.

I had holidays about two months ago and I played that weeks episode non-stop and managed to get into the top 1500. Since then I've hardly played because I actually do have other things to do with my life.

It's just not a game for casual players.

Thanks for the thelolimus, but i had 240 gold episode medals, and all i got that wasn't a double, was ultra Magnus :BANG_HEAD: And when the current episode came out (yesterday) i was in rank 4500, and my ipad ran out of charge. When i logged back on, i was rank 12000 :sad: is there any tips to get up ranks quickly? And get ruby medals? ( i have 51 ATM) :???:

Play every episode until you starting losing battle cubes, then stop and wait for the next episode.
Accumulate 500 or so cubes.
Give up your life for a week.
Stare at your iPad for hours a day burning through those 500 cubes.

You play all the episodes but stop when you reach the level where you stop earning battle cubes.

Repeat the process over various episodes until they're banked up.

DeNA is continuing its month long September to Remember campaign for its entertaining mobile card battle game TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS that showcases a series of weekly episodes and new content added to the game. Today features the release of the in-game episode called S.O.S. Dinobots! This exciting episode runs through Tuesday, September 17, 2013.

The S.O.S. Dinobots! Storyline

This week on TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS witness the primal power of the Dinobots versus the agile aerial Seekers.

In the aftermath of the clash between Megatron and Optimus Prime, the Autobots stand with their backs against the wall. With the power vacuum left behind by the clash between Megatron and Optimus Prime and with their hands full trying to protect the innocent humans, the Autobots are struggling to save themselves from disaster.

Without Optimus Prime's leadership and strength in the battle's ensuing chaos, Grimlock believes it's time for him to step up. As he charges into the battle, the Decepticons feel a chill of fear when they hear echoing over the battlefield: "Me Grimlock king!"

The Dinobots’ limited intelligence but incredible strength make for an uncomfortable combination. Optimus Prime considered shutting down the unpredictable Dinobots in the past before they could do harm to themselves or anyone else, but a sudden and devastating Decepticon attack forced him to reconsider. In the following battle the Dinobots prove that they are of immense value for the Autobots. Now the Autobots must call upon the might of the Dinobots once more as only they can change the tide of their desperate battle.

The Decepticons fear the Dinobots for good reasons. Even the powerful Devastator could not stand against the ferocity and sheer stubbornness of the Dinobots.

Will the unpredictable Dinobots save the Autobots? Can the Dinobot's tenacity bring down the Decepticons?

Find out in this week's episode S.O.S. Dinobots!

Other Episode Features
Ruby Medals continue to be a part of the episode. Play to win Super Rare Swoop, Sludge and Slug or even the Ultra Rare Grimlock. These character cards offer up to a 10x bonus in this episode's battles.

This episode also features the first Ultra Rare Evolution card. Players that get a high position on the Leaderboards can obtain the Ultra Rare Snarl Evolution card.

So I have been playing a little bit of this episode since I saw that it was one of the new leveled formatted episodes. I hadn't had any experience with this format so I figured I'd give it some effort. Let me see if I have this straight:

You use energon nets to trap cards, which gives you the cards and increased rewards. The energon nets are almost entirely useless as they rarely ever work. The game gets harder as you progress, requiring a higher deck power to advance without a bigger investment in battle cubes.

The game advances beyond your deck power well before the cards you trap actually become worth trapping in the first place. Your nets start to dry up because the rewards stop including nets, which is ok because the nets are still utterly useless, but its bad because you don't get extra points, but its good because the cards that you are trapping at this point are still utter garbage.

There is only one single card worth trapping on any battlefield and that would be the evolution boss at the end. You have almost no chance of trapping this card unless you use a power chain, which you get almost none of. And if you do happen to trap this card, you actually need 7 more of the card you have almost no chance of getting to have it officially MTMd or MEMd, as it were.

Is that all about right? I guess the questions are: Besides the evo cards at the end, do the cards ever become worth trapping? How are people getting so many points and not running out of nets if the nets are so freaking useless and rarely ever work?

I get that my deck power isn't big enough to progress too far into the hard tier. But I don't understand how people just aren't flat out running out of resources while still accumulating a massive amount of points. I feel like I'm missing something.

With this new type of episode, I simply run through the first bracket and then give up. Just bank up my battle cubes for the regular style.

I detest this new style, because of all the reasons Joey pointed out. I sat down yesterday to play it and when through the first two brackets capturing NOTHING. Why that may be is because my deck was still set up for the previous episode so it was Decepticon heavy and they apparently don't like trapping their fellow 'Cons. Switched the deck to Autobots and started trapping.

But trapping is still few and far between and down entirely to luck of the draw which makes this episode type more random rather than player effort. (Unless of course you buy chains)

I pulled this little quote off of the TF:L wiki forums. Name of poster is omitted:

As a T1 player right now (6th place) I can tell you that it will be about $150-200 in chains and energon for T1 IF the pace stays the same. (Projected at around 35-40 mil). I personally have 25 chains left and that will get me to around 40 mil which might just barely be enough. Even if I dont hold on, the 3 Grimlock were worth it, sadly no weapons for him.


This is why this game will not change. This person has spent upwards of $200, isn't quite sure if he will even finish in the top 100, and STILL thinks it was worth it for some electronic cards that don't guarantee him anything.

If anybody is on the fence about spending a couple dollars on this game, don't bother unless you are will to spend a couple hundred. It might not even make much of a difference then.

If you were hoping that this game would eventually stop being a money pit at some point, you can stop. With people gleefully throwing their money at Mobage like this joker, Mobage has little incentive to change the way they do business.

It won't do anything, a new player that has not reached level 8 has to enter your code then reach level 8. Once you acquire enough new players at level 8, you get the prizes. Most people are creating fake accounts with the button that doesn't require an email, logging in as a gamer or spark account, entering code, reaching 8, lather rinse repeat. You just have to remember to clear your game data or log out using your mobage account so you can sign in as a new user.

Hey man, some of the code guys at tfw2005 pulled the code and the net capture rate for the actual boss cards like thundercracker is only 5%, the small mob cards are 12%, so ya, nets can be pretty useless.

You only need 4 cards to complete the evolution. Max all 4 base cards, evolve 1 and 2 together, then max this card, evolve it with 3, max that new card, evolve with 4, max it and you are at the complete card.

I've kept my word and still not spent any more money, been saving all my resources since June, had almost 1500 energon, 1200 cubes, 8 nets, still didn't place in the top 100, not even close and I've burned through most of my resources. Payers are the winners still.

And you know what's worse, all the players I used to know that paid the hundreds every episode to be top 100 quit because they were tired of paying. They were replaced by another set of players that spend over $100 every episode because "now its their chance to shine". The OP vs MEGS event brought back a couple of the other big spenders and they gladly dropped a couple hundred each.

It will never change unless mobage thinks it can get more money, then they'll change to that.

i hate smartphone game apps. you'd wind up spendin more money just tryna to play em than you would buyin and playin a console game, or an mmo like wow or diablo. all of which are much more fulfilling than a phone app. problem is though, is that our phones are always in our hands. always occupying our attention. as long as that's happ'nin, people will be playin these damn apps and dumpin money into em mindlessly. cash is easy to spend when you don't have to see the dollars diminishing.

Thing is though, some phone/tablet games that are free can still be awesome.

Angry Birds - Fun simple game, want the version without ads? Set you back less than $10.

CSR Racing - One of the best damn racing games I've seen. Sure you can drop a weeks worth of wage onto it and get some super fancy cars, but I've been playing it every day for over two months, haven't spent a single cent on it and still actually achieve things.

You know, for years I've come to this website and blamed the collectors for their insane willingness to pay ridiculous prices for third party market figures, thusly driving prices up even more and ruining that market for people on a budget.

But for some reason to this point with this game, I have given the players a pass and blamed Mobage for the travesty that this game has become. I'm glad that I have seen this video, as it has revealed the truth.

This game has been ruined by the players, plain and simple. I wish I could understand this willingness to part with their money for absolutely nothing in return. But I can't and I never will.

Much like the fact that I resigned myself long ago from ever owning any third party product because I refuse to pay Masterpiece pricing for deluxe or voyager sized figures, I have also resigned myself from playing this game again.

I always knew it was bad with the player spending but I never understood how bad until the last couple days. Once I saw people happily spending hundreds of dollars on something so insignificant, when I saw that deck power for the top players in the last event was over 50K, and now this video, I knew that this game is over for me.

I have uninstalled this game from my phone. I am completely done with it.

Monuo, this is good to hear and a shame to hear all at the same time. I stuck to my guns too. Except that I stopped playing entirely through June, July, and August so I actually didn't build up any resources.

After seeing this video, it's easy to see why you didn't win. I'm honestly floored. I never thought that a person would be willing to spend $900 on this silly game. But the flip side is that it makes the decision to cut ties with the game that much easier.

It's too bad but at least we can say that we played the game when it was good and not as tainted . We had a a pretty fun run, albeit brief, while it lasted.

Re: Transformers: Legends Marcelo Matere Artwork (1519452)
Posted by joesaysso on September 22nd, 2013 @ 10:11pm CDT
Interesting. Like I said, I believe that the players have ruined the game. That said, I applaud Mobage for doing this. I doubt I'll ever be a Mobage fan but as we've seen over the last week or so, this game has got to be making money. They have no incentive to do this other than a want to make the game better.....or at least a want to give the impression that they want to make the game better. I doubt whatever they do though, this game will not change from a money grab standpoint.

A few changes could and would bring me back to this game. The ability to trade cards first and foremost along with increased interactivity with your allies immediately behind. I don't mind losing to people who are willing to pay $900. But it would be nice to able to trade with and have REAL teamwork with your allies. A formula that would allow good, old fashioned teamwork to close the gap between the regular players and the big spenders would be fantastic.

Give me the illusion that I have a chance to win. I know that I have no chance to win when people are willing to spend enough money to get a deck full or Class 5 Grimlocks and are running around with 50000K+ deck power. But if it looks like, one in a while, I could get a top prize through teamwork or whatever, I'm likely to keep playing. As long as real-life money is the one and only factor determining who wins and who loses in this game, I can't be bothered with it.

A couple more ideas: I'd like to see a rule where you could only use one of each card in you deck. I think this would accomplish a few things. #1 it would keep decks from getting over powered because of people who would sell an organ to fill their deck full of X10 class 5 cards. Secondly, it would keep all episode card relevant longer because they couldn't be replaced by several of the same X5 raid card. Lastly, it would encourage the trading of double should a trade system become a reality.

I would also like to see a battle system where the roles of the bots have an influence on the battle. Make it worth it to have a medic or a scientist in your deck even though they don't do as much damage. Maybe Ratchet heals a card each turn. Maybe Wheeljack improves one card's weapon for a stronger attack each round.

So here's the background on that video

An "assumed" girl player has been winning the last several events by millions, literally leaving all other players in the dust, her tag was "itsme5712"

The boycotters at the TFL wiki did some digging on her and apparently found out she was spending tons of money on the game to win, but the part that pissed them off the most was she was spending the money at gold farm websites and on ebay getting discount itunes cards, making her money go farther on the purchases.

They write a petition to mobage to ban her account because she has an "unfair" advantage over players (albeit non paying butt hurt boycott players).

Then they go as far as trying to figure out who she is, what her real name is, her real address and email so they can bombard her with hate mail and such.

Mobage closes her account to make the hate zealots happy.

She makes a new account under "war-flower" and proceeds to spend $1000 in the very next episode to guarantee a rank 1 win to rub it in their faces, also, she does this without the discount cards and stuff she was buying.

The nod to the players at the end are the people that were leading the hate charge against her, I believe.

Not many players can understand why the tf wiki boycott group were so angry and butt hurt.

I'm just assuming she has a ton of money and she was being a savvy "coupon" shopper by purchasing itunes cards on discount sites from vendors that buy so many, they already get a discount for distribution.

So that's the story behind that.

We have received some news from DeNA and Mobage about the final episode of the Transformers: Legends game for the month of September! The episode is called Colossus War, and will run until 2nd October - check out more details below, and take a look at the exclusive artwork for the game.

The art looks topnotch, per usual. I wonder how many toys Hasbro could sell if they commissioned some of this art for packaging! :-?

I don't know how many for sure. But I'll say the answer is a minimum of 1 each. Because if the box art is from this game, that means the figures are G1 based and I'd buy 1 of every single one they put out.

CALL OF THE PRIMITIVES - starts today!

In this week’s Campaign Episode, it’s the primal rage of the Predacons against some of the bravest and smartest of the Autobots!

In the aftermath of an unusual battle against a common foe, old rivalries heat up once more. After fighting side by side against their common enemy, the Decepticons and Autobots turn on each other once more.

Their temporary alliance had been an awkward and fragile one and now, with the destruction of their common foe, the feral instincts of the Predacons have flared up and they attacked those whom they believed to be the weakest of the Autobots. But appearances are deceiving and their Autobot prey proved to be more resilient and strong-spirited then expected!

Will the feral Predacons overrun the Autobots? Can the brave Autobots match strength with the fierce Decepticons? Find out in this week’s Episode: “Call of the Primitives!”

Wow, they drew Headstrong accurate to how chipped-up his paint is by now if you have a loose vintage metal one.

And they invoked the title of my favorite episode! That was enough to genuinely get me into the Beast Machines Dinobots, despite them being a subline of the worst thing in TF history.

That worked once. And even though this premise sounds like a plausible continuation of said episode, meaning it's a big free-for-all set in late Season 3, the greatest time ever for the Sunbow cartoon...it works only once. I'm genuinely sorry DeNA, but even if I had the money and a proper mobile device...even if Primacron's or anyone else's assistant told me the universe depended on it, I've heard pretty much a consensus of bad things about your game.

Will always love the art though.

Warning, angry rant incoming... :-x :BOOM:

Some pretty ignorant commentary in regards to itsme5712/warflower...

Jealousy? Butt hurt? There is no basis for such juvenile comments in regards the community position towards this player.

Let me preface this by saying that I have ranked top tier in this game twice as many times as 'she' has, having earned more cards than she has BOUGHT in the space bridge. My reason for commenting has nothing to do with jealousy. I have never sought a first place finish in any event. Why? B/c player 100 gets the exact same rewards as player 1, albeit with a lot more money left in their wallet. With that said, I am jealous of NO ONE. Arrogance is not a trait that I admire. I don't pine over the fact that I actually have principles and integrity. Let's be honest. ANYBODY can be a DOUCHE. No skills are required.

Butt hurt players complaining, boycotting, whatever. Not that any facts have been stated around those circumstances, but what does boycotting have to do with a cheater being banned? Are you implying that b/c 'she' spent money and boycotters didn't that the infraction should be overlooked? Here's the thing. Itsme5712 was buying from a gold farming site,i.e. Mobage wasn't getting the money. For every $100 she spent as compared to the average player, she was able to make 2-3 times more trips through the in game space bridge, or purchase 2-3 times battle cubes. How? $100 bucks spent with Mobage nets you around 10000 coins as compared to around $100 spent via the farming site she used netting around 20000 coins for her. Buying in bulk from the farming site resulted in even better pricing.

Before any boneheads claim that it was a smart 'shopping' decision on her part, Mobage is on record stating that they DO NOT authorize the purchase of in game content by using ANY 3rd party sourced coins. FURTHERMORE, the method in which 'she' acquired the in game currency is a violation of Mobages Terms Of Service. She is on record admitting to doing this. There is evidence of AT LEAST $800 in purchases from said farming site. There is/was no witch hunt, simply people that wanted justice and fair play. She claims that she spent quite a large sum of money legitimately directly through Mobage, which may or may not be true. Regardless, her credibility is forever tarnished, and Mobage made the right move by banning her the first time. Mobage cannot operate their business and maintain any credibility in their games by allowing dishonesty and shortcuts among players.

For those anti-Mobage minded folk who feel Mobage had it coming, how about the players that perhaps spent similar money who might have placed higher than her? How about the player who placed in position 101 and was robbed of the top tier finish and rewards? What if they money they had spent netted them twice the resources? How about the players who knew of her methods but refused to copy them out of honesty and integrity? If you still don't see any wrong in her actions, then your parents have completely failed in raising you.

Winning by any means necessary is the attitude that has been adopted by the trolls that supported her. Hustling gift cards, arguing against morality, spamming and trolling player profile walls, all done by her closest associates. On top of all that is the arrogance with which she carries herself. Proclaiming herself queen. Stating that she brings fear to the community. Making and posting childish videos taunting other players. Total garbage.

As for boycotters, educate yourself. A large part of the first boycott was in relation to the gambling aspect of the space bridge, not to mention its cost. There were other issues as well, including mid event changes to boss stats to shake down players for more money, issues with the game locking out players during an event costing them their standing, players who had cards and cubes randomly disappear from their accounts, as well as many suggestions to improve the games features. It is also noteworthy, that a large contingent of folks that supported and participated in the boycott were regular RANK 1 PLAYERS. These were not bitter players who continuously failed to find success in the game or were unable to invest in it. Also to CLARIFY, people who just happened to be boycotting didn't complain about itsme5712 b/c they were jealous or butt hurt. Players, such as myself, boycotted BECAUSE of her. Not only do I refuse to compete with ANYONE who does not play by the same rules that govern everyone else, I REFUSE to listen to that individual and their squad of troll cheerleaders parade around arrogantly with some distorted sense of accomplishment. In spite of what 'she' and her posse may think, they are not above playing on equal footing with everyone else. Either we all have equal opportunity, or shut the damn game down.

If you are interested in improving the game and making it more accessible to players, I suggest you look up some information on the current boycott of the game to find out what it is all about. You can do so by checking out the TFL Boycott page on facebook. Rather than make stupid comments/assumptions about the people who started or support the campaign, why not find out exactly who they are and how they are fighting for honesty, integrity, and improvements in everyone's gaming experience.

/rant. I feel better.

You know, I'm fairly certain that everyone who has posted in this thread have been supportive of those undertaking the boycott.

Can you give some quotes that say otherwise? Your rant completely baffles me as you seem to be attacking people that just aren't posting in this thread.

Or maybe I read it wrongly ... I don't know.

Ok, so here are the comments I take issue with. Granted they are from one user, but I see ignorant crap such as this far too often on other fan pages and forums. I'm at my wits end trying to argue right and wrong with people who have no understanding of concepts such as honesty, integrity, or fair play. People whose only retorts are insults and accusations of jealousy. Totally elementary.

"They write a petition to mobage to ban her account because she has an "unfair" advantage over players (albeit non paying butt hurt boycott players)."

"unfair"...? As if there is no legitimate claim from players that she was cheating... Really? 1. Mobage is on record stating that they do not authorize the purchase of in game content using funds procured via 3rd party sites. 2. In order to fill her account with those coins, she had to violate Mobage's terms of service by turning over her login information over to said 3rd party website so that they could access her account and load her purchases. 3. Is it really up for debate that two players can spend the same amount of cash with one getting 2-3 times the resources to use in game from their investment?

"albeit non paying butt hurt boycott players" Ignorant comment. 1. 'Butt hurt' implies jealousy. I do not envy cheaters or any individual of questionable values and principles. Between her videos taunting other players, proclaiming that she is the queen of the game, claiming that she brings fear to all players, having her lackeys spam the profile pages of other players with profanity, hustling for itunes cards, messaging other players with false information to give her and her allies a better in game advantage, she and her kin have proven to be total unscrupulous trolls. Being a total douchebag is easy, there are no enviable skills required to be one. In addition, I personally have never sought a first place finish. Why? B/c I got the same rewards she did, albeit with a lot more cash left in my wallet. What do I have to be butt hurt about?

2. Do you know any of the individuals who participated? Itsme5712/Warflower was a primary reason for many SPENDING players to boycott, myself included. To insinuate or assume that those who participated never invested in the game is completely absurd. If the boycott were comprised of 'butt hurt non spending players' it wouldn't be much of a boycott would it? In fact, the boycott was filled primarily with players who regularly finish in the top 2 tiers, including the gentleman who placed FIRST in 3 out of 4 events in September. The folks that organized and support the boycott are community minded individuals. They seek fairness for all players in addition to improvements in gameplay, disclosure & communication from Mobage, and more. Selflessness and jealousy are not compatible or comparable traits.

"Then they go as far as trying to figure out who she is, what her real name is, her real address and email so they can bombard her with hate mail and such." Outrage? Yes. Unkind comments? Yes. Harassment? Any proof to back that up? Any venom sent her way is simply in RESPONSE to her arrogant statements and juvenile behavior. Trying to figure out her real name....? Considering she has posted much of that information in blogs on her wiki page or on twitter, those accusations seem pretty silly.

"Mobage closes her account to make the hate zealots happy."Hate zealots? Again, another ignorant comment. It's pretty easy to figure out by now that you see no wrong doing in her actions. Cheating, taunting and antagonizing other players, all acceptable behavior to you. Dismissing players with grievances as being 'hateful' or 'jealous'? Neither are legitimate rebuttals to any argument made here. In fact, they are pretty juvenile statements used in place of any actual legitimate argument. 'You don't share my beliefs or values so I'm going to insult you!' WEAK.

"The nod to the players at the end are the people that were leading the hate charge against her, I believe."
Actually those are her supporters. The folks that she used to spread disinformation. Folks she used to try and hustle iTunes cards for her. Folks that spammed players Mobage profile walls with profanity. Classy people.

"I'm just assuming she has a ton of money and she was being a savvy "coupon" shopper by purchasing itunes cards on discount sites from vendors that buy so many, they already get a discount for distribution.

So that's the story behind that."
Incorrect assumption. In fact, she tried to use that ridiculous 'coupon' shopping argument. Completely laughable. Coupons are issued by manufacturers as incentives. Mobage has NO AFFILIATION with any 3rd party golds site. As stated before, they are on record stating such.

There is way too much bargaining and excuse making for 'her'. I find it disgusting and deplorable that anyone could try to justify 'her' actions.

While I won't speak for Monuo, he can do that himself, I'm pretty sure that he wasn't excusing or justifying her actions. Moreso, I believe he was trying to tell the story as he knew it for guys like myself who don't frequent any of the other TF boards and don't have access to the information.

If it turns out that you have more information on the topic and you can shed more light on the issue, then great. Good on you. However, I really think that you are getting spun up about nothing.

Also, my personal opinion is that you also have little to gain from your rant. Judging by the level of inactivity in this thread over the last few weeks, I think most here have moved on from the Warflower issue and plenty have moved on from this game in general.

I'm not too familiar with Mobage's user agreement or terms of service or whatever they are calling these days but if you are right that it says that 3rd party funding is illegal then it's pretty indisputable that she cheated.

With that said, it'll be hard to garner any sympathy from me. Here's the way I see it: Warflower was willing to spend $1000 for a one week episode. Whether she spent it through a 3rd party or she gave it straight to Mobage, she was still willing to spend $1000. With her, there are probably a ton of other players who are right there with her. Perhaps not to that extent but enough to spoil the game for the players who don't have that kind of disposable income.


It is my point of view that the crazy spenders of this game have sent it straight down the crapper. I just can't, in good conscious, feel sorry for a few players who were only willing to spend $200 a week on this game and are upset because she spent $1000 illegally. If you have that much disposable income or that much financial irresponsibility if you're broke that you'll spend that much money on a card that will be out of your deck in 2 months anyway then you got what's good for you.

She is not what's wrong with the game. All of the massive spenders are what's wrong with the game. It would be a waste of time to rally the troops against her and protect the game from her when there's 100 more of her just waiting in the wings.
