      I'm kicking myself for not picking this up during the STEAM sale. Seems like a really fun and innovative game that's got some legs. Hopefully they put it on sale again in the wake of this tourney :)

          I wouldn't bother with that version. it takes forever to get operatives that way.
          Just look for a sale, heck amazon had r6+ season 1 pass for $24 and it was worth it imo.
