Well it sounds like a snake draft so with IH, waiting I'll select Saar


Good luck Twelve, they were a lot of fun to play as! My experienced advice: Go south :)

Yeah I am taking a few cues from your game with them and some readings and other online games of what is effective and have some changes I would like to throw in.
I don't know what I'm doing but it sounds good.

Damn. Khell is getting aggressive already? Khell style that is: inciting others to violence.. :p

DO get Hybrid Crystal Fighter 2, though it doesn't have to be top priority. Don't expect to be able to really rely much on the upgrade making them 1/2 a fleet supply, though, so Carrier 2 can be a big asset. The Flagship is amazing, though the time needed to build it and fill it with fighters will take more time than your initial expansion, so it's really only that useful if you expect to do a lot of late-game fighting. Otherwise, the extra couple fighters you'd get in your land invasion is no better than a couple dreads bombarding.

Neuroglaive is amazing. Space Dock 2 or Integrated Economy is really helpful for reinforcing fighter losses.

Telepathic is sometimes good, sometimes bad, try to trade away your PN at the times it's bad. Obviously it's amazing for winning a close game.

Thanks! Neuroglaive does look great (and I probably should have picked your spot with its green tech planet, but I chose my starting position before thinking about races), and fighter-heavy forces seems to be a bit of a theme for me. I'm looking forward to constantly running slithering away! And yeah, always going first does seem like it could be as much a hindrance as it is a help - at least that PN looks like one which could have a fair bit of value in trading.

Niiice. No Creuss, no Mentak, no Hacan, and no Nekro, none of the races that have huge effects on the entire board (Naalu and Yssaril do a little bit, but not as oppressively). This should be a nice, fun, more vanilla-esque game.

Yeah I was tempted by Neckro and Hacan, but as you said thought it would be nice to have a more vanilla game.

And I presume we are waiting on objectives to be handed out before starting strategy picks. I've left a provisional in.

And Blend's got to setup the whole map and the game thread and all that.

When you talk out loud yes, but when you just talk psychically, no.
