So, I’m currently fighting in a all-ai game, and I’ve noticed several times that while AI obviously won’t counterattack, they appear to passive-agressively respond to incoming attacks.
Numerous times I’ve attacked a AI only to find a fleet incoming to the star I’m about to conquer, set to arrive either just before or after I’m going to get there.
A current example, I’m about to lose 670k ships because the ai suddenly decided to send a 170k ships to reinforce a star that already had nearly twice the average number of ships compared to it’s other stars, about 2 hours after my fleet started towards that star.
This isn’t a occasional or infrequent thing, I’d say that this has happened with well over 50% of the attacks I’ve made.
I’ve had people ask for a link to the game before, so if anyone wants to see it it’s here: http://triton.ironhelmet.com/game/5288521854091264
