2 questions for you that may be different: 1) What do you think is the best affinity for a domination victory in Rising Tide? 2) What do you think (in your opinion) is the best affinity to focus on? Or, what is your favorite affinity? Why? In vanilla BE, I thought Purity was best for both of these questions because of the tech path that it brought you down. Now in RT, I'm not so sure. I'm actually wondering if Harmony is the best for domination because miasma spamming via Rocktopus might tip the 'tides' (see what I did there?) in harmony's favor. The tech paths seem to be balanced at first glance, but then again I haven't looked too hard and indepth into them. I also did like all the levitating units purity has as well as the explorer perk. I'm not overly impressed with supremacy's units in my current game, but I'm playing it differently too. The free roads is cool too, but with more water maps I don't build many roads. Thoughts?
