The scenario seems to be random. I've played two games and gotten Last Train Out both times, one as attacker and once as defender.

One of my matches took more than 20 minutes; the others were fast. I say others, plural, because once I got Jake and once I got Drew, and we didn't play each other, preferring to clear the decks for other players. As I type this, Drew is waiting for an opponent; he'll let Winch and me know when he gets one.

My apologies to nyrathwiz - I'm out of battery and have to go pick up a kid.

I also got Last Train Out (and screwed up deployment, thinking I was playing _The Train_.)

I tried a game, got the Mk. V attacks as defender, and got wiped off the board due to my usual inability to roll high numbers.

And I'm signing off. Thanks to everyone who helped set this up, and everyone who played!

Me too. That said, Bounder played well and deservedly trounced me.

Also, I owe him another game; our Breakthrough game froze during setup and I can't get into it! Bounder - let's connect sometime after the holiday to try again!

Thanks everyone!

Had a great time today. Had a couple issues, but got in 5 games and added a few more Steam friends. :-)

Yes, they are definitely random in ranked play (it's one of the things I've requested be modified). I'd like to be able to define what scenario or what side I prefer to play, or at the very least, define Ogre or GEV scenario.

The only way to get what you want it to play unranked skirmishes with your Steam friends and schedule a game.

it depends greatly on the number of people waiting. it can range from seconds to a half hour, depending on your luck.
