After a certain stage in the puzzle, it became just a guessing game, there was no logical way to proceed anymore.

It might feel like that, but there really is always a clean step-by-step solving method. It can be hard to find, though, as in this puzzle!

I liked it very much - the right balance between hard and doable :-)

Agree with Gareth, it was possible to do by logic, sometimes hard to spot though.

It has a lot of the "not so obvious" methods in it...

like a row or a column of
w < x < y > z

where y has to be at least 4.

and my "favorite" (that I miss a lot) where you have to spot two cells with two pencilled numbers that don't appear in any other cells in that same row/column - so you can delete the other pencil numbers in those two cells - leading to one of those deleted numbers without duplicats.
