Look mate... if you throw enough tries at a problem chances are you will succeed at some point. Player Skills matter, performance matters, luck matters and so does a list. You can win with LI lists no problem. But you are a less likely to do well with them compared to ALL lists in the pool - that doesn't take any level of skill into account. Poorly designed lists, dice, player performance etc should impact both LI and non LI lists equally - yet LI performs worse in regards of average TP and average OP. Which as a result heavily indicates LI format as major part of the cause.
