How many of y'all still playing this? I've only very recently started playing any appreciable amount, but I'm starting to have real fun w/it. I may just have gotten really lucky, but after getting crushed repeatedly when I started out (I've never really played any type of game like this enough to understand the mechanics), I'm finally starting to win some rounds. I'm generally placing top half of the pack now, and got 1st place 3 or 4 times today. That said, I can't shake the feeling all those 1st place finishes were luck. I mean it seems to me like you have to understand the game enough to putting alliances/items to good use, but beyond that, there seems to be an *extreme* amount of luck involved. All those wins came with at least three or four 3rd-tier units, while none of my opponents had more than two. That's pretty much just down to luck isn't it? It always feels incredibly hard to get more than one unit to 3rd level, and if I do better than that, it just feels like the dice rolled my way vs. any masterful picking strategy.
