Actually, I knew what was going to happen if I abandoned … but I was curious what would happen if I stayed - would there possibly be double damage on the allied attackers. I’m posting our in-game discussion for others that come on to this thread.
So what happens if I’m defending a star, and two fleets from different players that are allied hit me at the SAME time.
I.e. lets say I have 200 ships defending on Star XYZ. Player A (with 100 ships) arrives at the same time as Player B (with 500 ships). Player A and B are aligned. What happens in the battle?
Here’s what the Codex says … but it doesn’t address the issue of if Player A and B are aligned.
More than 2 Players
In combats that involve more than two players, you can imagine each participating player sitting around a table in the order shown in the character portraits across the top of the screen. Starting with the defender, each player will attack and deal damage to the nearest enemy to their right.
Attacks go clockwise and they fight each other. AvB. BvC. CvA. I believe only the defender gets the bonus
Thanks Brian - was just curious if it makes a difference if the two players are aligned.
