I am a brand new player, never played Neptune’s Pride (or other games of that sort) before. Nevertheless I enjoy it a lot! I joined a beginners game and it is now at Cycle 6 - Tick 162. Unfortunately 3 players left the game already (there went my allies and trade-partners…) and a 4th one will probably go afk soon as well - however the other 4 (me included) seem to stick around.
My biggest problem right now is the AI. I am stuck between 2 AIs and one of them already took 2 of my stars.
It gets technology at a pace I can’t match in the long run and it destroyed 100 of my ships while it only lost 30.
On top of that it has a significant advantage in weapon-technology (1 level at the moment, probably 2 soon).
I would like to have a second opinion about my strategies / 1-on-1 coaching from a Triton-Veteran. Because the game is still going (and I am new to the forum) I won’t / can’t post any screenshots here. I would highly appreciate the opportunity to talk to a veteran through skype / teamspeak / mumble. I can’t send private messages here on the forum (because new to the forum) so if you want to help me out, please send me a PM with instructions on how to contact you.
Thanks in advance for any help!
