hi folks,

legends is realy a great game. why?

following situation:

i had my own tiny little prospering empire in a corner of the galaxy. got few colonies (one indipandant one with 400 mio. population), few good mining and research stations and was happy that i got some time to develop my empire and get stronger.

there were only 3 star systems unexplored in my corner and guess where were sitting in this systems:

-the legendary pirates (one base, 4 defensive bases and a huge fleet with capital ships)
-the notorious silvermist!

so from one second to the other there was no growing empire anymore but fighting for the survival of my planets.

few hours later i lost 3 colonies to the silvermist and almost all my bases to the pirates but was able to destroy the home base of the pirates with the "last battalions"". now i am crossing my fingers and wishing that my crash program for ion cannon and building a fleet to kill the more and more powerfull silvermist is finished before it attacks my homeworld.

the point is:

in all space strategy games i played so far i had never such a similar situation where a chilling game can turn into a struggle about life and death so fast.

well done guys!

Question... How fast is Silver Mist when it jumps from one system to another? :)

As for Your situation, I must admit that I love to expirience such demanding situations :) So, I wish You great challenge and lots of satisfaction with every one victory :) And of course I wish You to overcome this! :)

Some of the my fondest memories of Master of Orion 1 are from games where I was taking beating after beating. Every little victory felt like a major accomplishment, and simply surviving the ordeal was a fantastic feeling. Much more fun than the "turtle and steam roll" games.

I hope to experience this as well in DW...

I loved to start HoI2:Armageddon in the 1944 scenario as the germans. That was lots of fun. As you said, every "minor" victory felt like a major achievement.

It is fun being on the losing end in this game and struggling to survive.. Think I'm going to put myself into the worse spot I can.. play as humans, against a galaxy full of insects and spiders with lots of space monsters and pirates that hate me. On as aggressive of a setting as I can.

i played MAO2 too but it didnt feel the same. the Ai was cheating to hide the poor AI routines.

about the silvermist:

i realy dont know where exactly it came from. i have a cluster of monitoring stations but the silvermist can not be detected while traveling between systems.

damnd i like the guy from the forum here who designed the beast.:)

@Fideach:

great idea. maybe i do the same to get even a bigger challange.

WILD SILVERMIST APPEARS! "U MAD?"

Ran into it in my busted 1.7.0.1 Zenox game. Damn that thing's terrifying and fast. After I pulled my explorer out of there that thing just vanished! Deadly and elusive.
Gotta keep the ion cannons ready in my current game.
