I'm going to start a 5 player game later today and was wondering if it's a better idea to have the Xxcha rather than the recommended Hacan. I've heard too many stories of a defensive Hacan dragging the game down. On the other hand I'm worried that 5 players makes the prediction easier.
I was thinking the same thing the other day. I already had some 5p games, and often resulted in the Hacan playing very defensively. Without the Hacan you wouldn't have a standard victory in case no other victory condition holds. The prediction accuracy problem is tougher to evaluate IMHO.
I think it may be worth a try.
