Hey, in this other game I play I am in the “middle” bordering 4 players. 1 is replaced by an AI, another 1 I made a nap with and we’re activelly discussing strategies. A third player (red) doesn’t seem to react and is expanding towards…
But then there is the 4th player, he is at a peninsula of the map, only bordering (at least till hyperspace 5) me, and on my question about how he felt about doing things together he replied “aggressivelly” demanding my home planet and several others as he would ‘need to pass through me’.
Now I am in techs etc all equal to him, however he is moving to one of my planets in 17 hours from now (game is only 36 hours underwayk, and there’s only 1 planet in between). He has weapon tech lv 2 already (I have 1 still and a solid day off as I invested in something else first). I am really anxious as I can’t see what is coming, and wonder how I could repel this? I could send all my fleets to this key planet (the one he reaches in 17 hours can then reach 5-6 others of mine). But that would leave me open to red & yellow (AI player).
My ally really can’t help me as he is on the other side of the map.
So shoudl I try to defend that single planet? Or should I just give that one up and defend the 5 stronger main planets? And should I build a factory on this “key planet” - that planet is only lv 6 though, so I would spend my whole income to build a lv 2 factory.
What kind of fleet should I expect? And how should I react? I was preparing a fleet to do a pre empty strike at red. but that seems to be not a good idea now.
