    Play Henry: We're Taking Over With WWE 2K22's MyFACTION

    MyTEAM has always been a staple in NBA 2K games. It's a surprisingly addictive mode set on giving players the collectible card game experience incorporated with the game proper. This year, WWE 2K22 looks to be jumping on the bandwagon and adding a special mode similar to this, called MyFACTION.

    MyFACTION is a very interesting and smart take on the card-collecting mode. Not only will we be able to build our faction of eight (four males and four females), we'll be able to customize them using special cards. The addition of managers, side-plates, logos, and more will definitely give players the chance to build their factions and take them on a journey to greatness.

    Upon writing this preview, I've already initially touched on the mode during my playthrough and I can say it's an interesting take on the game. On starting the mode, you'll be given a choice between SmackDown, RAW, or an NXT starter pack. You'll then be able to set up your faction lineup (including logos and such) in preparation for the game modes you can use them in.

    There are three modes where you can take your faction. Proving Grounds is the main one where you can earn cards and MFP for your lineup. I'd like to compare this area to a career mode of sorts for your faction—although there's no real story per se. There are objectives you need to do to be able to earn points and cards and the difficulty spike is progressive so it should be a good place to farm cards.

    The other two modes are Faction Wars, where you'll be pitted against another faction with four AI opponents in a variety of matches and stipulations; and the Weekly Towers, which provide an assortment of challenges that update weekly.

    Upon playing the mode, you'll be able to earn MyFACTION points and MyFACTION tokens which can then be used to procure more cards and packs for your faction. There's also the option of purchasing Virtual Currency to purchase cards, packs, and contracts though admittedly, there's no real penalty if you take your time grinding and earning the MyFACTION points and tokens instead.

    I'm honestly looking forward to this mode since it will provide a fun alternative. As a sucker for card-collecting games, I feel that I'll also devote a chunk of my time to this mode, aside from my usual Universe, MyGM, and MyRISE plans.
