They struggle with a spaceport
The vast extermination fleet
Claims a narrow victory
Against a stationary target
Sheer foolishness, and yet,
Machines do not miscalculate
What is their plan?
No really, I'm confused by the AI here. They're usually pretty good about not attacking unless they have the upper hand in fleet power, so it's strange that it attacked into your bastion with a weaker pair of fleets. I guess the fact that your main fleet was still under construction fooled them?
Also, since I only just got caught up to this, I really loved "Wild, Wide, Weird Galaxy." Like, even if you didn't know anything about Stellaris, the imagery is good and the shift in tone at the end hits hard.
Always nice to have a new person commenting, welcome. I'm glad you like "Wild, Wide, Weird Galaxy" its one of the better updates in this AAR, if I do say so myself.
In terms of the AI, In fairness to them, as you will see, things almost go their way.
Also consider what things look like to them when they DOW: My FP was 2.1K scattered across 3 fleets, theirs was 2.5K in two fleets. Especially given their Fanatic Purifier bonus, their odds of success were reasonable.
In other news, this has been this AAR's 50th update. Thanks to you all for your comments and support, I've been enjoying writing this AAR and plan to continue to do so. Obviously we will have to stick to the current version when Nemesis comes out, but that will just incentivize me to keep the updates coming.
The tricky thing about war
lies not in how you start it
but in how to end.
