I'll pop in for one of them every now and again. You probably don't want me winning everything every week anywya.

I dig this game. It's almost exactly what I wanted, some chill thing where you explore and find weird crap.
Nobody's really bothering me except some weird empire that was a little wary of me and then suddenly declared war and demanded I cede both my planets. They're also now causing trouble with a far friendlier nearby empire.

I actually think the AI for this game isn't QUITE as bad as everyone is complaining about. It can use some tweaks, but yesterday I got into a war with a nearby neighbor.

So I'm off looking to kill his ships and attack his planets when suddenly the AI managed to sneak all the way around to the very back of my empire and attack my homeworld. I'm not even sure how the AI did it but it took me by surprise big time as he bypassed all my defenses and went to my capital through someone else's territory.

Of course now I have huge battlestations around my key worlds ... but lesson learned.

uuuuuuuugh. I do not understand war in this game. I declared war on a tiny one-planet civilization bordering me, with the war goal thing of making them my vassals.

My fleet arrives in their system, destroys their spaceport, and then I immediately get a message like "alright, you win." My fleet automatically leaves their system, and I can't declare war again for some time limit. I've tried like 5 times. What am I doing wrong? How can I check my war goal things after the war begins?


Alright so I guess I missed a war status button I need to select. I'd like to try, but this game takes a billion years to start up so maybe later.

Paradox has done it again.

I have 43 hours logged. It's CK2 all over.

Send help.

It took me like 200 years of game time to realize that sectors exist.

Literally fought pitched wars (and lost (white peace), and lost (cession of 2 planets (20% of my population) and vassalization) with two empires while 5 planets over my limit.

As soon as I figured it out, my economy soared. I didn't even notice until I won my war of independence and went to sort out my economy on pause.

That's what you get for turning VIR off.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

So I defeated the big endgame stuff and mostly conquered the galaxy. It stinks that you can't really win the game as an alliance, you need to win as an individual, so I just stopped once we owned most of the galaxy.

Going to start a new game now that I know what I'm doing and perhaps raise the difficulty level a bit...

Paradox never did give much thought to victory conditions >_<

Losing is fun
Fun is better than winning

I guess that's the logic?

Anyway, just got the game. Still messing around with race creation. Pretty fun. Made some repulsive fanatic spiritual slug people led by Ted Cruz. Probably gonna play a race more focused on science though, once I have the time.

OMG they are Ted Cruz
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I'm starting to get the hang of the game - vassalized a couple of early spacefaring civs and uplifted another.

One time, researching an anomaly gave me a corvette as a reward, but spawned it at the center of the galaxy where I couldn't do anything with it, because I use wormholes. Game's got bugs, baby!

Wars between large nations are unfun. They are so annoying. Worst part of the game I've found so far.

I wish there was some way of curbing other peoples' FTL that wasn't complete garbage.

-EDIT-

Also, when does Ruler Designer come out for this? I want to be able to set the traits of my polities' starting rulers for lore reasons.

I think this game is pretty fun now, but it'll be damn near perfect once Paradox starts up the DLC train.
