Just discovered Thrawn's revenge a few days ago and right now I am completely overwhelmed by the content. As a big Star Wars fan of the real Star Wars and not this new disney crap, I am really admiring the work here that included all the great extended universe storys.
After playing "The Stars Align" as a starter I now wanted to get into something bigger. So I decided to to a single planet start, as an era-progressive GC still seemed to big for me (rather start with one planet and evolve from there than to have many planets where I loose my sight really quickly).
In the description it says that everything gets randomized. But I started it two times and both times I (Empire) started on Carida While the New Republic, The Empire of the Hand and the Hapes Consortium always had the same (multiple) planets. There were no additional factions besides that.
- Is it intentional that there are "only" these 4 factions + Independent?
- How am I supposed to progress through eras? I thought in Thrawn's revenge this happens when the Era-specific hero gets killed, but I started without a hero.
- What is meant by "The starts are randomly"? The two games I started looked completely equal.
