Repair it with construction ships. It'll take some time.

In my current game, I found the World Destroyer after the Gizurean race had found it and was already repairing it. They are extremely erratic. I couldn't figure out how to take over their repair without starting a war with them, so instead I attacked the 1/2 repaired Destroyer!

After several minutes of one-sided combat, the Destroyer went BOOM.


I think this is an exploit though. The Gizurean player should be mad at me, but wasn't.

This is a quirk/feature of the game since its original release - you can steal a ship which is being repaired by having more warships nearby when it is finally repaired (it will automatically become yours), and you can destroy a neutral ship which is being repaired without any diplomatic consequences. I've also blown up World Destroyers and other ships which someone else was repairing without any adverse effect.

I would like a game mechanic added to this.The A.I will leave you alone in peace to rebuild it and that is surely not right as this ship destroys worlds..

I think it should continuously damage your reputation when your construction ships try to rebuild it.

Wait, all I need to do is park a fleet by the World Destroyer, trade away my galaxy map and kick back while someone else fixes it for me? That's just devious. I like it!

I thought they fixed that in one of the recent patches.
