This my current campaign after about 20 hrs http://imgur.com/Z3m7tvd, dont remember if that is the largest or second largest galaxy.<br>
i have been pushing research, not expanding, colonizing just own system and some empty spots.<br>
I thought i was doing well, then just lost my max size fleet in couple of secs to the more advanced tribe attacking me.<br>
Then different approach, Alliance fleet defending my border system http://imgur.com/3L6bhGn.
DIE YOU ALIEN SCUM!!!
HEre’s mine after quite a lot of time spent on it :
In blue my empire, In white empires I already conquered and in green an old empire I’m trying to conquer. At the beginning I took direct control of ennemies territories but finally it’s more a pain in the ass due to conflicts between species. at the moment I got 3-4 differents species in my empire and that’s enough. having multiple kind of species is good to take control of differents type of planet, got one specie for desert, one for artic world and this is a huge advantage, creating sectors for old planets already at their maximum and keeping direct control on new colonized planets.
I already try to fight the old empire but they powned my 40k fleets without any effort so now i’m just rushing technologies.
Choices between weapons on my fleets are very hard to make.
So far I’m disapointed by fights : too easy or impossible to win. I guess it’s due to the fact that you can’t control them. but still they’re always one sided. I really enjoy watching my fleets charging in the melee like a crazy killer and his machete but without resistance the fun is not that big.
After work, I’ll try again to fight the old empire and gonna take some screen, those huge fleets fighting with “pew pew” every where is a very nice thing to see
