I'm pretty sure this game works on a dice roll where whoever wins the roll will dominate the game. Centre bounces are certainly not decided by my ruck skill because I perfectly time it everytime and still lose. The ball spills and goes to a player from the team that won the "dice roll" by any means even if it means defying physics.
I play my friend and he beats me by close to 10 points. We play again and I beat him by close to 10 points. The winner is determined by a background dice roll because whoever loses suffers the same issues in game eg. Can't win clearences, players won't tackle etc.
The game is not worth playing if the winner is decided by the dice roll and not skill.
Will this be addressed in the next patch?
