I quitted just when the “new” AI was implemented in neptune’s pride. Now I wonder: what is the best method of fighting this ai?
I’m currently in the situation that right at the start my neighbours both quitted, leaving me enclaved by the AI.
In the past the AI always shared together all their research and basically “worked together” to a victory. So it was vital to quickly get as many good stars as possible, even if it meant going through Pyrrhic victories. This was possible since the AI would never actually attack you, so you didn’t have to keep any defense.
Now with the new AI they will attack you? What if they’re neutral? Should I still invade them directly - or is the diplomacy penalty too severe?
