We had a good discussion about balancing (and a survey courtesy of SleepingGiant), and then Spice posted on page 12:Fair enough. We can incorporate it from round 3, if it's generally requested.It seems the +2 thing for the US is standard for tournaments. See BGG thread.
Has anyone started a game with balancing for the US side yet? If not, I'd suggest that we do Round 2 without it. Since 8 games will be played with swapped sides, we'll have more data and can decide then for subsequent rounds.In terms of the tournament rules, I'm not going to make any starting VP or bidding rule changes for round 2 at least. Ignoring the defaults, the win ratio is currently 5-4 in the USSR's favour, so given our collective lack of expertise, the imbalance probably isn't having much practical effect at the moment.
