    Hey, thanks for that batrep! I'd say that was the most enjoyable 20x20 batrep that I have ever read or watched. It was especcially great since Ariadna and Nomads are the two factions I play myself.

    Congratulations for playing the most complex mission pairing of 20x20 not only correctly according to the rules, but also in a very exciting fashion. I have only played the dropship scenario twice and it has never worked out so well. (So much for playtesting, hmmh.) Nevertheless, the dropship scenario was the most most challenging to write but I really like it.

    As for wonkiness, I have to admit that I failed to make Infinity missions really easier, but I believe that my missions are better than ITS when it comes to being narrative. 20x20 was started when I felt that the ITS missions were not very good. ITS has improved and I sadly don't play 20x20 a lot any more. I play more Aristeia! than Infinity these days.

    I am happy to see that people are still playing 20x20 in 2020, thank you for contributing this fun report.

    Thanks prophet of doom. That is a huge compliment coming from the creator. Even though it seems the design of 20x20 leans towards being able to bring an 'all-comers' type list with the lessened importance on specialists, we have been rolling the dice at the beginning of the week and then announcing our faction before list tailoring for the opponent and mission. We are doing this for fun (same as the 'cinematic' swamp around the dropship) more than anything else, but also because it allows us to maybe use profiles that are hard faction counters or not likely to show up in a typical tournament ITS list, where you have to prepare for multiple missions and any opponent.

    We had gotten a pretty bored with ITS, but I was extremely worried when we rolled two of the toughest objectives for our first ever game. I think i might have actually sighed and thrown around the word 'meme' when Toast sent me the rolls. But honestly this was one of the funnest games of infinity I have every played.

    Thanks for creating and maintaining such an enjoyable system!!

    Indeed, 20x20 was designed to facilitate casual games with 'all-comers' lists. But this stops with the Dropship Escape mission! I knew this from the very beginning of 20x20, but once I had this mission in my mind, I could not let go off it! It survived all editions of 20x20. No, the Dropship mission is hard to play with some random list but really fun with a tailored list. I believe Infinity is meant to played with tailored lists anyway.
    The dropship stays, even though it does not fit into the concept of 20x20. You played it as intended, I hope I will get around to doing that myself one day.
