Makes your score all that much more impresive, that you didnt use Swindle tactics.
don't misunderstand, I'm pleased. but I think we both know, in better hands (and maybe a better rig) this map could do 7 didgits. Can you imagine being the Evil Twin with 946 and not being able to upgrade/save all your ships?
now thats a REAL b*tch
Admirable humility, but almost 800k is surely nothing to scoff at. Less than a handful of people have achieved 1 million points. I think just Motti, Livonya, and Mumblefatz...sorry if I left anybody out.
Yeah the depreciation with successive games is a real b*tch.
At least it motivated me to break 400k. Part of the credit goes to jacklv for giving me the idea to turn the random events on. I got an econ boom AND an influence boom fairly early in the game. Sadly, the idiot Torian ambassador just HAD to visit that $&#( factory on one of my planets later and get whacked. It was a short war. My military rating was something like 250 vs 25. 500ish planets vs 8. 250+ influence rating. My fleet didn't even break a nail.....
Those econ booms in particular are vital to an exceptional score. Always hated that assasination event...I want to control when I go to war and with whom!
Ok, we've finished moving, but school is on so I won't be able to finish my game anytime soon. Wish me luck at my new school (forgot to tell you that didnt I?).
Why'd your family move mADDYman? And good luck of course at the new school.
Sentient species taste better...
