towerbooks3192 -> Wow I really suck at this game (2/2/2013 7:03:44 PM)

Managed to recall the basics while playing around and watching Das24680's videos. I realised I am not good at this game. I am not sure if I really suck at it or I am just unlucky. I tried a couple of games as a human and the latest one I got that I feel is going well, I found some silvermist in the ruins!!

I really need some advice on:
Ship/Base design
Managing Income
Grouping fleets and assigning defenders (I hate having 1 uber fleet running around or splitting a fleet that is not enough to defend)
Research Priority (I tried getting missiles ASAP and tried refitting my frigates into missile frigates)

I really need help in those areas and some advice would be welcome!

I am not the one to give you advice. We all have different methods. You may want to check the WAR ROOM
Different people have different thoughts and they work based on the designs they used.

I spent a lot of time building an economy and my fleets are very limited in the beginning of the game... that they are as strong as they are is because of the vast piracy I fight off...

I never build heaps of mining, gas, resort stations. Just enough to cover my needs and that way I don't pay huge maintenance costs.

I have left all that on auto - tinker with polices because the ai is better than me :-) but this allows me to manage the wars
I dont auto fleet, I make a few fleets

I had this game today where I though area weapons were the planetary bombardments so I stuffed area weapons on 5 cruisers and attacked but it ended up killing eachother and all my other ships. Other than that I managed to reload and researched bombards and managed to do a successful invasion. I was really frustrated when I could successfully destroy all defenses but my troops aren't enough to kill the defending troops.

I think I made good progress so far. I just feel uncomfortable about how space is so...free. I mean I am not bound by maps like other strategy games and its a bit tricky to determine which are my frontlines and which are the ones I have to defend.

Get long range scanner - as soon as you can. That will help you spot incoming fleets and give you some time to react.

Yeah, I like playing on Clusters or Ring maps for that reason.

Tossing an advanced empire in the middle of the ring sometimes is good fun too.
