In multiplayer games, the major (and problematic) luck factor is the random deal of long tickets. (Yes, I know, play D#####, but that doesn't work so well with four or five players.) TTR:E greatly reduces this factor.

The luck of the ticket draw is still a factor - when I played last night and drew three short tickets that had absolutely no overlap with my long ticket, I knew I was unlikely to win - but it is actually a smaller factor except possibly in two-player games.

What does change a lot is that blocking style that so many online players like. You can't simply block an opponent out of his destinations, because he'll simply play a station to go straight through your block. The block still costs, but it isn't worth it unless you also advance your own position by playing it. I think it will be found that the strategic differences between 2-, 3- and 4/5-player games will decrease.
