I recently completed a game (https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=9303610
) in which I took one of the available two First Turn Bonuses (otherwise known as FTB's for any newbies here) and went on to win in 10 turns. And as it can be seen there is only one obvious counter-pick to that FTB which is in Turkmenistan.
So I wanted to ask a question to all WarLight players out there: When should you pick a FTB, and when shouldn't you?
It would help if you insert a game link of you or your opponent picking a FTB, along with your answer.
EDIT: Just noticed SA was also a potential FTB, thanks Cat for pointing that out. With the 0% WR settings FTB's are obviously harder to take as it requires pure luck with 3v2's
