Uhm... I don't think I did. Turn off your pre-judge filter and go back and read it again. What I posted was in support of the quote.

No, definitely not true. Only those at the Capital City could see the layout. Soldiers in the field were still restricted to only the limited communications received from the Linked Thinkamancer, so only those she could afford the juice to speak to got a report, and that was a restricted report. It was better Intelligence than any other Side got, but certainly not on the scale you're proposing.
During the link up, it cost you the counsel of three independent casters in favour of one that you were not to consult for opinions. You saw more, but had fewer ideas of how to deal with it, amplifying the weakness of GK leadership. Coupled with a genius leader, yes, the table could be extremely powerful. Coupled with poor leadershhip, you were exposing the weakness of the Side with a fancy toy they could not adequatey exploit.
