I found that just terraforming planets and then monolithing them is quite effective because they usually invade the Grox for me.

I personally enjoy hacking my game to get an insane ammount of planet busters... but then I can't brag about how I defeated the Grox...

But, realy, I usually do what Yannick suggests and let the AI do it for me. Failing that, shield on, fly low, do moving bombing runs on their cities. You can only realy do it with the keyboard, though:

Arrow Keys: Move ship
< and >: Turn ship
Tab: Change your tool tab (Social, weapons, colony, etc.) Ctrl+Tab or Shift+Tab makes it cycle backwards.
Number keys: Select tool (Top row)
Ctrl+ Number Keys: (Bottom Row)
Enter: Use tool (Only for non-targeted tools, like rally call and health packs)

Unfortunately, you still have to click to actually fire the weapon. As long as you keep moving from the moment you enter atmosphere, you'll take minimal damage.

Am I the only one who non-conspicuously slips past the Grox to the centre, leaves, and never see nor hear from them again, just ignore them from then on?

Has anyone ever successfully defeated the Grox?
Maybe it's one of those secret achievements.

It's just a secret badge, not an achievement.

I thought the same thing.  What's seriously the point of badges anyway?  Nobody else can see them.

it seems expensive to fight them, but I think it pays for itself. fighting the grox can be a lucrative buissness. each city you bomb (and it only takes one fully upgraded bomb) gives you 10-50k, so I racked up a couple million from just a dozen planets

Thanks for saying that.

Personally, I like to take a weapons and arms approach, and have destroyed 50-100 planets, I think.

well, they have, officially, 2400 planets.

I'm not trying to actually destroy them. I just find it one of the most efficient moneymaking strategy
