Re: Hidden Heart of Darkness Scheme lame?
Set up and luck always factor in on how easy or hard every game of legendary is. In this case you took a low fight mastermind ( 7 fight I believe Stryfe is) and were lucky enough to get to that fight early in the game. Try this scheme using Apocalypse or other higher fight mastermind.
Winning in 6 turns isn't so bad. I've lost Save humanity scheme on the first turn. Now there's a real kick in the teeth.
I do believe that this scheme is on the easier side of the difficulty scale of the game. But I have found it to be very fun and you should give it few more plays.
