Checked Wyndstars metaverse stats and all your DA suicidal stats are tiny/small maps so not really impressive. Try large about 90-100 planets 8/9 opponents then i'd be impressed.
I'm more impressed at someone willing to help out the mid-level players such as myself.
I didn't find hubris in his original posting, just sound advice (some new, some not). Of course strategies and scenario's change according to a multitude of variables.
From what I've seen - and logically I've no reason to think it'd be different at Suicidal - its actually easier
to win with more
opponents to start with than fewer. Why? Because if you can at least stay off the bottom of the chart, they will war on each other just as willingly as they will with you. Fewer opponents makes it more likely you'll get singled out and attacked. On a larger map, also, you've much more room for expansion and development.
Thanks for the post, Wyndstar.
