After yesterday’s embarrassing loss, it was time to shake things up. I lowered the difficulty and also changed up the faction. In addition to that, I made the conscious decision to play a little bit more aggressive. Wouldn’t you know it, that made all of the difference!
This time around I am trying out the Gaia’s Stepdaughters faction for the first time and I must say that I am enjoying it thus far. One of the things that can slow you down in the game is constantly being at odds with the planet’s terrain. The advantages of the Stepdaughters allow the land to be a bit more friendly to you and boy was that apparent in today’s episode.
There were at least three different boils of mind worms that rather than attack me, joined my cause. I used that army of mind worms to scare the crap out of the Spartans, and am now using them to annihilate the Believers. Killing with mind worms is my absolute favorite part of this game.
I’m going to continue to play this scenario out, but as it stands now the Stepdaughters are the most powerful faction in my game, and I’m guessing this will ultimately be a victory. Not absolutely sure about it just yet, but just seems like the bump in difficulty made the difference, not to mention a few of the lucky breaks.
Hopefully I can finish this game out at some point this week and then I’ll start up on a new game. Note that I’m off from the day job on Thursday and Friday, so I plan on having some longer than usual gaming sessions on those days. That should give more people a chance to watch the stream live, and will probably usher in a new game as well.
