Well I'm quitting the game, after really seeing how forgiving escalation phase 1 can be to a player I am quitting. I enjoy high pressure tactics from the beginning of the game but I seem to not be able to develop advantages in the game when i control the entire map and wipe my opponents squads. This is due to passive income and refund in escalation 1. It is no longer fun for me, I do not enjoy a slow paced game style which seems to be what relic wants and I do not enjoy forgiving games. If you make a mistake you should be punished.
