Miniature Giant Space Hamster
Yeah, the problem I have is that I can beat the individual offense fleets, which are around 110k each, by combining my two main fleets, gives about 160-170k, but i cant touch the defensive fleet around the original spawnworld because its around 260k and theres no way for me to match that. So I'm having to slowly clear out the offence fleets and try anything I can to increase my fleet cap. Unfortunately two of the other three contingnecy planets are basically steamrolling everything around them so im worried that when i finally clear this one out the others will be too entrenched to defeat....huh. I think that finally explains my first encounter with an Endgame Crisis. The Scourge devoured almost my entire core, and a Fallen Empire showed up to fight, and eventually the Scourge just stopped expanding, even though I was hiding out on Paradiya, right next to my home systems. Eventually built a Gateway to let them backdoor the whole thing. They must've been reduced to their defense fleets.
