That happens for maps with too many territories. Same thing for Hive.
If you want to play a game where luck isn't a factor, go play chess.

As an alternative, take the other type of snapshot (i.e., not in chat) and exchange the information among teammates by other means: screenshots, PMs, team-only game chat describing the situation, and so on.

If it has to do with territories, then why does it work in a quads game but not a Dubs game? Just wonderin

The number of troops on the territories will have a marginal effect as well, because it takes more characters in the chat line to record that, say, there are 100 troops in a territory, rather than 1 troop.
