I had multiple times that I have a good early game and okay mid-game.
Turn 9 someone dies and then on turn 10 and turn11 I get matched up with super high rolls and lose ~40 health.
Even if I found the good cards on turn 10 I just lose. No way to play around it and does not matter if I have the third strongest board I end up 5th, 6th, or even 7th.
Not sure it is bc of the buddies but it kind of kills the game for me.
