The game is almost there. SO damned close.
Guys, please fix the minors.
They are sitting targets. Barely any offense, poor defense and they sit on a pretty piece of property.
Start them slow, but let them invade a little, and flip planets a little, maybe a bonus or two so they can stand up to the big boys. Let them vote as a group. All the minors act as one vote on the council ala B5, or something like that.
I feel so bad for them. They need help.
Pleez, pleez, pleez.
