How to lie with statistics

After a truly epic battle, reaching way past our bedtime, the military victory was ours. After nearly two hours of game time, at 1:27am in the morning, having lost 91 lives to the enemies' 55 we had won!

But in reality, we should have been crushed playing against these bots - due to a failing in their AI coding, they peaked and then didn't know how to finish us off. We rallied, holding them off our ancient, and clawed our way back into the game. The bots having maxed their levels, and having more money than they knew what to do with, squandered their advantage, and the tide turned.

Had we been playing against humans the game would've only lasted 30mins, and not in our favor.
Thus continueth the training into 2017...

Sprung taking a leak
