Wrong, mistakes happen rounds in advance of someone being killed more often than not. You can look at a pretty good number of my games and realize that i am the one going for most of the kills. Its all about setting yourself up to not be killed and to kill others at the same time. Often a fine line lays between the two sides of that coin. You say skill is over at that point but this is the root of where you start to go wrong, skill is not over at that point...skill has already happened. It is a skill to know and read the board and to be prepared of that possibility to happen. That is no different than sequential...sure speed is all that matters after all the skill has been placed into the move but that doesn't mean any fast player can have the skill to be prepared for what eventually happens.
I am not disagreeing with you ljex, what I am saying is at the final critical moment. Once the mistake is made all of you recognize it(because you know the map) now it is purely who is the fastest to get those cards. Yes the skill to get you there is now over, the turn in is the winner, because now everyone is waiting to see who is next and if they can get there first. Thats all speed ljex.
