My copy of the Ultimate Edition was waiting on my doorstep after returning from morning errands. Just finished playing through the tutorials for a refresher. So far so good.
I hope this game has great success, it's just not for me. I'm not a strategy kind of player. I did try Blitz mode and got destroyed. I tried getting the power drops but the other team attacked my players and swarmed my bases. Just frustrating more then anything.
