Does anyone know if the Shakturi always eventually show up as long as they are enabled? Or is there some sort of random element where they may never show up no matter how long you wait or what you do? I wish this stuff was documented..... :(

They show up if you trigger some events and after the average tech across the empires hits a certain level. What that is, I don't know. They have not shown in most games I have played though. So it's not random, but it's also not guaranteed they will show.

They sometimes show up even if you don't trigger any events...I'm thinking one of my AI opponents called them.

In my current game, I've found only one of the markers but the Shakturi are already in my galaxy.

In my second game ever, on "easy", they never showed up at all, but I think that may be because I wiped out the race that they were supposed to masquerading as before they could. I had wiped out 7 of the 8 opponent races in that game. I am sure that they were enabled in the setup screen.

You need to actively pursue the Shakturi story arc for the "true" Shakturi invasion to begin. Or you can just add them as a race in the game setup :3

I've been saying this since I started playing, your tech level has nothing to do with it..... The entire galaxy could be stuck at tech level 1 and they will still appear as long as you trigger the right events/beacons.

Yeah I've definitely seen them show up without me triggering a beacon. Whether one of the other races did it or not I have no idea. I've never seen them show up when everyone is at low tech, not saying it cant happen, I've just never seen it. And I've had many games where they were enabled but never showed up before I won, probably (?) because I won too quickly but who knows if they ever would have appeared?

This has been a frustrating mystery ever since the Shakturi expansion was released. Is there a random element in whether they will appear in a game or not? It would be good to finally know for sure.

When they show up in my games, I never come close to giving them a run for the money. I'd love some opinions on tech and strategies that might be better able to combat them. My only new idea is to war against the "Refugees" as soon as they appear trying to nip them in the bud.

They don't seem to care what tech research settings people are using, that's one big problem with fighting them.

When they show up I tend to exit the game and start over.

The only time I tried to fight the Shakturi, I had two "super" weapons built into my largest ships and ports. They still took me from 70+ colonies and 50 oversize fleets to 10 colonies and 3 fleets in less than 5 years gametime.

Even with starports at every colony, I couldn't rebuild my fleets fast enough to contend with the losses.
