    General strategy:

    Knock out the first group. Pretty straight forward.

    Next... whole group should go towards one of the Generators, generally accepted that the left is the first to attack in a PUG run. Good idea to take out the cube above the generator, then quickly take out the Generators around the Transformer. Note that as soon as the first of the four sattelite transformers are destroyed, Spheres and Nanite Spheres will spawn and head towards the Transformer that is being attacked.

    If a player has a Gravity Well... use it on the Nanite Spheres to keep them AWAY from the Transformer. If a player has a Megawell build, slap the gravity well on the gate itself, and it will grab all the spheres.

    NEVER USE GRAVITY WELL ON THE TRANSFORMERS. ESPECIALLY WITH NANITE SPHERES NEARBY.

    Once the Generators are down, destroy the Transformer before the Nanite Spheres arrive.

    -If Nanite Spheres arrive and the optional is lost, prioritize normal Spheres, as they actually DO shoot you, then Nanite Spheres, since they will not shoot you until the Transformer is destroyed.

    Fly to the opposite side, rinse and repeat.

    Once both Transformers are down, a Tactical Cube will spawn, and the Gate is vulnerable. Mop up offending Spheres and Nanite Spheres, destroy the Gate, then destroy the Tac Cube.

    OPERATION COMPLETE!

    Alternative tactic for Generators:
    Old School 10% Rule

    Bring Generators down to 10%, then nuke them all at once and hit the Transformer. Potentially viable for a lower DPS group, but does need more coordination and situational awareness.

    Higher DPS groups can coordinate and divide the group to engage both sides. Not recommended for full PUG runs.

    ISA L->R.

    Use gravity well on the starting cube. Nuke it down with CSV/FAW. (Science users should not use their Subspace Vortex on that initial NPC clutter).

    Center is cleared. -> Head to the left (Evasive maneuvers optionally).
    Primary target - Cube above. (Tacs and nukers)
    Secondary target - transformer below (Sci and Engineers). - Use Subspace vortex on the center of the transformer. - The lateral transformer pets should be cleared via Engineer-Cruiser FAW.
    Tacticals that have cleared the cube target spheres and the transformer.
    (All debuffs on the transformer to take it down quick).

    Fly to the right. Gravity well in front of the Gateway. (Clutter Nanite Spheres) - Use Subspace Vortex and the Ultimate Temporal Reputation Shrinking Anomaly (multiple ones on distinct spheres).

    As the Nanite Spheres are cluttered and the first ones will explode, a chain of warpcore breaches will clear them out in a cascade.

    Repeat the tactics done on the left side Transformer. Cube (tac/nuker), Transformer (Sci/Eng). Transformer debuff, transformer cleared.

    Turn all noses towards the Gateway. Place Iconian Ultimate Reputation Threat Platform in front of the Gate.
    Place 8472 Reputation Shield Bubble in front of the gate
    , encompassing the space between the tac cube and the gate.

    Focus all fire and Grav Well+Subspace Vortex the Gateway. Tacticals focus CRF or power through the gate.

    Nose turn to the tac cube (Final Target). All debuffs on the Tac Cube.

    And then you say "Thank you for team." and someone shows some parse.
