Had a really sick combo the other night...
Played with InterPlanetary Cinematics (2MC rebate on events) and started with Media Group (another 3 rebate), Earth Office (-3 Earth tag), and Advanced Alloys (St and T +1). I had Legends wrapped up by turn 3 and the game just snowballed from there....(2pl)

How are people finding the balances with the new Milestones in general?

I have seen no balances issues with the new maps.

Some times you just get the right cards... Did y'all draft?

This is a key piece of information. Drafting is a must in my games!

I've "let" my opponent get all the discount cards in a coule 2p games so far, both drafting, both on the original board.

One I managed to squeak out a win, but I had to end the game as fast as I could. If it went any longer, I think my opponent would have won.

The second was against my wife, and she destroyed me in that one.

Yeah.. we always draft starting with the first 4 card research phase.. these were mostly in my opening hand... ended up keeping 6 or 7 cards.

There's your problem... Some games are just going to be like that.

Also, it's very difficult to make a claim against balance after only 1 play... Hell, I thought Sekigahara was horribly unbalanced after like 3 plays, but on my 4th I tried some strategies I read. Now I think the game is reasonably balanced.

Play test your exact setup again and see if you get similar results. Obviously give the cards a thorough shuffle.

Interplanetary Cinematics plus Media Group is just a very strong combo. When I see this come up, I start hate-drafting events pretty heavily.

We always draft our starting 10 cards.

First we deal out 5 cards to each player, then draft them.

Then we deal out another 5 card, and then draft them.

We also draft the 4 cards for each research phase.

It has become our standard way to play ...
