Re: Use of corvettes in later game stages?

I think much depends on race you are playing. I do remember playing Sharatar or Gavakens and using corvettes in late game as fast anit-fighter platforms From what i remember they were going like 15 speed with a full deck of long range lasers, IR lasers or blasters. I would concentrated like 5-6 behi...

Re: AI seem to colonize slowly

I watched a gameplay on youtube once regarding this problem, and the guy explains that very well, we need to set up a game without logans (that is 9 races in total), and maximum 350 stars. logans are far more aggressive and expansionists, compared to other AI's. it is also possible to play as logan...

Re: AI seem to colonize slowly

I can accept the AI slow colonization to some extent but what is even worse than that is one AI colonizes say 16 planets while the other colonizes only 3. this discrepancy between the AI's really hampers the overall game since those AI's that colonize too few planet will lose the game very soon and...

Re: AI seem to colonize slowly

So this might be a consequence of the AI being unable to bunny-hop effectively between earthlikes on unfavorable galaxy layouts Thats also my guess. A human can adapt, build 30+ fuel colonization ships if I scout one, but I expect the AI stays with the default one and maybe doesnt dare to go furthe...

Re: AI seem to colonize slowly

Hmm i play only on hard. I have started 4 games and advanced till early mid game. the first 3 games were the default galaxy size. My last game is 650 system, i taught that maybe with more space the AI will do better. But no, i have met 2 races so far, i got around 30 systems, one AI got 4 !!!! and t...

AI seem to colonize slowly

I have played a bit of Polaris with the Lumens expansion, and it seems to me atm the AI even on hard difficulty colonizes quite slowly. I am able to outcolonize all or nearly all races from the start, which leaves the rest of the game without a challenge. From what i can remember form the past,the b...

Re: Mid- to Late-Game Blahs?

Wow! I'm impressed. I take planets with 86 % interception defense. Just be sure to have enough troops for a second run 1 planet out. 2 runs from what i remember alwys worked. I use fighters and ground attack ships, sometimes throw afew tanks. FireStorm1010 I interpret the 86% defense as meaning 86%...

Re: Mid- to Late-Game Blahs?

Wow! I'm impressed. I can't see how you can take over an earth-like planet with a pop of 150K, multiple defenses and a large amount of ground forces without bombing it. I understand you can BYPASS it, but sooner or later you HAVE to take it. Realize you can do the peace treaty/gimme your planets th...

[SPOILER](Dont watch if you want suprise) Threat battle

Below a video of the external threat battle, dont watch if you havent experienced it yet and dont want a spoiler.
Waht imho is iteresting about this video is i nearly dont use the most used torpedo fighter solution, i try other tactics.

Re: Mid- to Late-Game Blahs?

Well it takes some logistic planning, but conquering planets is definitely an option, i havent so far bombed even one planet(comquered around 120 systems from start, playing on hard). You need some well designed transports and hitting the enemy the moment you clear the orbit(so the planet doesnt hav...
