I know this might sound ridiculous to some people... From what I can tell, a lot of people here have experienced a more or less balanced rebel/imperial win ratio - but in my gaming group, Rebels have always enjoyed the majority of wins.
Now I'm a player who loves a challenge - but also I'm very pedantic and if something seems odd, I come at it with great persistence.
I had played a lot as rebels in the past, and it bugged me that we kept winning, so over the last three games, I insisted on playing the Imperials (truthfully I like the empire more anyway)
First game, we got absolutely destroyed (four player game) - second game (two players), it came down to the last round but I made a terrible blunder that cost me the game (that was a lot of fun though) and tonight ... tonight I finally brought the empire their first victory in our gaming group!!!
I feel like I have a much better idea now of how to play the empire, and I'm looking forward to giving other players tips so that we can break the rebel win streak in my group :)
I'm going to play against the player who I played the last two games with again soon. We're gonna settle our tie-game series with one championship battle - and probably record it and put it on YouTube just for fun (I noticed a lot of YouTube games of rebellion are rarely played completely correctly. I want to help change that lol)
Sorry if this post comes off as rambling. I'm excited and this is one of my favourite board games of all time so I just needed to talk about this somewhere XD
