Hello!, new(ish) player here. I originally signed up years ago but never even started my first game, the ui just gave me a headache. I returned with a little more patience for gaming and started anew last week.
I would like to know about attacking the AI. Does the AI know how big an incoming attack is or does it know only that an attack is present at all. Is it, “oh there is an attack of 37 ships, I should prepare a proportionate response”, or is it, “ATTACK!!! ATTACK!!! MAN THE RAMPARTS!!! PANIC!!! PANIC!!! PANIC!!!”?
