I edit often for clarity.
I get the social experiment part. And I get the environmental part.
I don't think it's fair. If you pit two people against each other, the one who is well fed and rested will usually beat the other one. Even factoring the human drive to want better I still find the Epoch team so highly dis-advantaged that the experiment in my opinion is skewed.
I also think there should have been more of a consequence to the other team after the first games when Epoch's vet had his leg broken by an underhanded play.
