Should you always defend a star, even if you know you will lose it and all the ships on it? Or is it better to save your ships? I realize as the defender I get a +1 weapon bonus, and they will lose ships also, so that’s why I think it’s best to defend and make them suffer losses also.
Here is another scenario. What if I can send all the ships to one of the attackers stars and try to capture it? I still think defending is better, because I’ll lose ships attacking and he will lose none on my star.
I think I have answered my own questions as I typed this out, but still curious what veterans of the game think. I’m still in my first game so I have some learning to do.
