A fun strategy game. There is no absolution in it whatsoever. It's so random. Sometimes, the enemy can do something so weird, and out of place, and you can lose a few troops. 1st playthrough, let's say mission 5 as an example, it can be easy, then the next, just plain annoying.

That's kind of the fun part, it reflects that there is no absolution in war. If you're a perfectionist, expect to save & load, save & load but that gets really annoying. Just use your instincts, take advantages of certain abilities, and play it smart.

Also, let me jump the gun for you after a few hours into the game.

You don't understand what probability is.

That's not luck based at all.

And you also don't understand how the game works either. It creates a seed that is static throughout the map. That's why reloading to try a new shot doesn't work. There's no dice involved, just a long string of numbers that go progress through as the game makes checks against your actions.



So you admit it is luck based and yet you deny it is luck based... ok?
