The first draft of the cube was actually pretty close to what I would consider a final product. Afterwards, we discussed adding more Non-Aligned in exchange for taking away some of the affiliated people so that there are enough NA's to go around. Joe also felt that Feds had a bit more star power on their personnel, so maybe we could trim swap some in / out to less their skill density. In general, it felt like straight affiliation made more sense / was easier than running a treaty.
The only issue I had was going first is obviously a tremendous advantage in this format, probably more so than any other, and I went 2nd every game. I mentioned it to Charlie yesterday, and I think we have a fix we could implore for that as well. Overall, it was a great change of pace and I again want to thank Jason for putting in the work to build it / run the event!
