My success has inspired me to do another AO rotation. In a few of the games, especially those against Yig and Yog, I feel that I kind of stacked the deck in my favour by pre-selecting some or all of the investigators. My plan now is to play against each AO once more, but in random order this time.
Investigators will also be chosen randomly. But once used they will be not be included in the pool for the next game(s) until the pool has been completely exausted. With 16 investigators and 8 AO's that means each investigator will see action twice.
Also that way I can't continually pick Mandy Thompson.
First of all, I'm really happy the game keeps on satisfying / entertaining you
As for the rules for selection... that's the way I play too. Additionally, if a certain team is defeated by an AO, I keep on repeating the game until I'm able to win. But that's my challenge, I want to be able to win any match with any starting team. Once I had Vincent top scorer in a victorious Rhan game, and man was it good!
So, good luck with that. Seems like you're on the right way to learn the game in the hard way, but this tempers great players. Go on with that
