Re:Suggested 3 Player Intro Game Races?
Sol appears to be the most balanced race to play with : no power bonus, no extraordinary techs, good but not excellent trading abilities.
Beyond this one, it's more to avoid a few :
* Mentak is maybe a little too dangerous early on
* Sardakk N'orr has a great advantage in battle
* Hacan is very specialised on trade
* Xxcha is maybe too political (but probably not unbalanced for a 3 players game)
* Naalu's initiative may dissuade to attack them
* Letnev may be suffering too much from lack of TG (if both others allies against him)
* Jol-Nar is highly specialised.
So what are we left with :
* L1Z1X : powerful but without extraordinary abilities. He shows early on the advantages of tech without being the best tech race in the game
* Yssaril may be a good pick but their advantage is high if there are only two other races... Xxcha may still be a good choice.
Obviously, it's 100% subjective.
