- Scrappy Mechanic: The randomly generated maps, which can introduce a form of Fake Difficulty. When the resource distribution goes your way, fine. But, when it doesn't, you slog through the map, only to realize that it's not working out and then you restart and try again. This becomes more glaring in Conquest mode; pray to the Random Number God that your first mission gives you a reasonable distribution without having to restart.
