I guess I should have paid closer attention when there was no skill level mentioned in the game description.

Wall Bash I was having fun with my trans toys and now I'm already doomed as an advanced player has casually nudged his way into my space and is sending fleets en masse to destroy me.
My initial reaction was to scream obscenities at this unnamed player, but I guess a lower-intermediate AR player in a game such as this is merely bringing a knife to a gun fight.

I guess I'll see where things go before I decide whether to quit, but last time I was an AR that was invaded early in game, I was utterly destroyed. Embarrasingly enough, the invader was really bad at it too. (A hundred or so frigates with beta torps was his first wave.)

Am I to take this as meaning that the Decepticons feel that they have deceived themselves in terms of their chances of survival long term?

Not advanced? You are the same "Alien" who I used to chat with in #stars! right? As in, the channel where people smack their heads whenever I tell them how many resources I have by 2430?
(Bought the game in 1999 and I'm still barely intermediate. What a learning curve)

You Kotosians are SICK. All that diplomacy and compromises and then you join in a two-way sneak attack.

Sad I was all set to have fun with this game. What hope could I possibly have? Sad

I all fairness the ship would have attacked anyways for at least a few reasons. The current state of your military combined with your PRT makes you an easy target to expand into (The large greens that you control don't hurt either)

Looks like others have beaten you to the fun part.

You could try grovelling.
Works for me !

Borg think best to have reputation of not easy to kill,
make painful rather than profitable.

Game still early, Decepticons could still end up powerbroker in late game mineral crunch.

Borg understand early attempts at Hit over head perhaps better than anyone else, yet Borg still Smile

So in other words, don't play AR? There wasn't much I could do to defend myself.

Hmmm.
Well there's another AR in the game. Surprised
And he's making a nuisance of himself. Yelling 2 Guns Fire bounce

Without knowing any details at all, perhaps you should have played a quicker starting AR. Question Smile
