Dark galaxy, starting scanning tech 3, others at 1. Turn-based game 8/24.
Here’s what I see:
Is there really no algorithm that can level out this kind of starting situation a bit?
Also, I’m not a very experienced player. Maybe I’m over-estimating how much a 8-vs-4 planet lead 16h into the game, and the lack of ability to find more planets in the next few days, matters?
