Honorable resignation is mostly a lie. This isn't chess where perfect play in a doomed situation practically guarantees victory- this is a game where Smart Bombs can show up out of nowhere and can flip the tables. And I like
smart bombs for that exact reason, the fact that keeps the game always on that .01% edge of possibly getting turned upside-down at all times. It's exciting.
Seriously, just don't do hit the red button until every last torus is tripped and inhibited with no useful powers. Had I walked away from this
after a catastrophic, undefendable Swap Row, that would've been a costly mistake. Granted, my opponent misplayed the situation a bit, but I turned it around from terrible odds against a 20+ squadron.
