I had been ignoring this game for a few months after I had updated and had been unable to play any of my saved games, but just a few days ago I decided to play again. Probably a bad time because I'm near finals week in school, but it only took 8 hours and 40 minutes to win a two star game (Gateway map), which is a couple of weeks shorter than I usually take to play a game. It's still rather a fun game. Taking a vacation from it for the past few months has helped me to appreciate how cool the game is, whereas with continuous play a few months ago I was starting to memorize the special effects patterns unintentionally. Anyhow, SoaSE is a rather fun game to me still.
