Ditto.

A human empire asked me to help them fight Boskaran invasion. I joined the war, but every damn planet i conquer is immediately given to that damn empire. Boskaran took my colony, i took it back and again it was immediately given to that human empire. No they didn't rebel. Planet wasn't my even for half a second.

In same game another empire announced war to me. Aaaaand again - same bloody hell. Every planet i took from them was immediately given to my ally.

Even my troops are trapped on planet and popup info displayed as belonging to my ally's empire.

The hell kind of logic is that?

What version of the game? Universe?

I assume you join an existing battle, and/or ship presence at the colony is that of your ally. I believe your troops should be magically transported to nearby transports, but maybe you don't have that?

It is an impossible situation for the software, if two ally's does both attack the same colony. Who is to get it? There is no correct answer.

Try to avoid "joint battles". And if you have them, try to keep a fleet on top of it.

Skywalker, please check out this discussion:

It may or may not help.

The second latest patch (as well as the last)was supposed to address this issue, and there is a valid point regarding taxation rates (of all things).

Cheers!

I think it comes down to who has the most troops (military power) on the planet at the end of the battle. That's the trade off with alliances, your friends might actually land a larger landing force than you do when 'helping' you with your invasion. I used to think landing first was the key, but after having it happen a number of times over several games, I'm leaning more toward the actual troop strength present.

Either way, I have found that issuing my fleet an order to blockade until it arrives then invading alleviates the problem, as your allies won't send their 'invasion help force' until you give the actual order to attack and land troops. By blockading first, your troops are already in orbit and in most cases you can conquer the planet before any allied fleets (and troops) can even arrive.
