Attacking blind on turn one with your Pretender will always be firmly rooted in the "Doh #1" spot for me.

I dunno about that ... off the top of my head, I'd consider it with indy-5s and a Dom-10 pathless Kraken. Or maybe in EA with a Dom-10 E9 cyclops.

I just don't see how the benefits could possibly ever outweigh the risks.

Positives - Slightly accelerated start that may net you an extra 2-3 provinces after one year.

Negatives - Dead Pretender, and game over (with regards any chance of actually winning).

That is just not a level scale in my books. To me it's the worst possible version of "Win or Bust". As it's not "Win or Bust" at all. It's "Be a bit better off or Bust, which is just a purely crazy gamble in my books.

Never forget that there are countless nasty Indies lying in wait on land, and the water has wailing ladies. And those will kill a Kraken easily from tests I did with a game I took a Dom10 Kraken in.

For me at least, there is not a single Pretender build that I'd attack blind with. The risk reward is just nowhere near viable enough.

With indies at 5, that's doable. Put indies at 7 and it's not viable unless your pretender is immortal and you have dominion.

Turn 1 most of the time you *don't* have dominion. Usually just candles in your capital... So even with immortals its a bad idea.

I'll do it with a pathless wyrm. Very rarely elsewise.

You never have dominion. Natural dom spread is at the end. Only way you could change dom before battle would be preaching/sacrificing. And you'd need really big luck to get dom spread into prov you are attacking.
