Anyone else confused as to why TMB + BMB (having more money) would cause _loss_ as opposed to using TD & IV which have ABSOLUTELY no benefit at all and thus lower money = fail? #confused
I guess somehow having more money caused my army camps to upgrade more, which somehow led to non-strategic captures? Perhaps capturing along a different path that leads to failure, whereas having less armies led to a different path which somehow led to a different path.
It makes sense to me that if it's no clear victory / defeat, there is some randomness when swapping details. The extra money is probably not a game changer. Maybe in your game with the higher money, your bot was taking over unimportant territories, while the other bot was eating your valuable bonuses for free.
