I just played a training match and with 1 minute to go was winning 20-5. The game then continued for a further 36 game minutes(!!!!!!!) allowing my opponent to take a 26-20 lead before they hoofed the ball out. Each time I kicked off their 11 ran unimpeded through almost the whole of my team - he hadn't achieved that once in my prevoius two re-starts. Seems that when you are on a losing streak there is no way back up. I have bought better quality players and tried various strategies to no avail. If they don't fix this bias I will drop the game and expose the money generating strategy (greedy bastidges) of the designers for all to see - and avoid!
Game Engine Bias
Get the tactics right and you will be rewarded. That the game is not always easy and occasionally a bit random is part of the challenge.
