Hello Erik, if you're reading this, I have two questions:

1.Let's say 3 or more races are invading an owned planet (or a neutral one) at the same time, how would you go about determining the winner? For example, in DW:U if the Zenox were invading a neutral planet and I would drop troops into the battle that the Zenox were winning, then I would win the planet and that's unfair and fun breaking. Is there a way to have more races battle for a single planet?

2.In DW:U if I set the special forces recruitment to high and infantry to low in the policy settings, the AI will still build more infantry than special forces and that is quite problematic. Does automation recruitment work as intended in DW:2?

I recall this being a pretty complex issue to solve back when we were working on DW1 and I don't recall what our final resolution was off the top of my head, but I'm sure we haven't run into that situation again in DW2 so far. Guessing the current logic is identical to DW1, but for testing those kinds of corner cases the beta will be quite helpful.

The AI should respect those settings and the army templates in DW2.

It should be a battle royal for the win.
