I've had this game since it came out, but I've only gotten to play three times so I don't know all the strategies.
Last game I played was 2P: I was Wood Elves and my friend was Orcs.
We both chased fans first. After that, I looked for Team Upgrades next, then Staff. From what I saw, he either went for bigger pulls or Staff Upgrades.
Biggest thing we both saw was that Spinting was king; I always had more players to assign and won almost all the matchups. The first week I think I had all my players in my hand (two guys with double sprint and both wardancers with their response triggered). It seems OP in a 2P game.
I've read the game is balanced, but is this only in a 3-4P game?
