I never used to play advanced starts until I did a scenario with one built into the script. Then I found out how much I really liked it. I don't wind up wasting alot of time fog busting and can set up a tailored economy right from the start. It makes my games alot more enjoyable. But I do recognize it as a crutch that favors the more "long term" traits like ORG and SPI but also helps traits like CRE and PHI when setting up the REX. What are peoples thoughts on Advanced starts.
