Not even close, relying on dice in this game is an incredibly flawed strategy. I literally mean moving my ships better than usual (getting all my turns right and not hitting crap), anticipating my opponent effectively, and keeping the shit out of arc so that I have all the time I need to get hits through without being shot at. There's more of a chance of a blank dice result than there is of getting a 1 on a D6, it happens SO OFTEN. Not to mention the attack dice are actually made to get better results than the evade dice (one more blank on the green and one less evade result than number of hit/crit results). Dice luck is great and all, but I'd rather try to fly so good that I could roll blanks almost the whole game and still come out on top.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
