Hi. Thought I'd share a rather odd game experience from a little while ago.
It was a week or so after I got TA that I had this particular game, while I was still trying out the new features and tech-trees.
It was the smallest map, rare everything, fast tech, and I started an Acension victory as soon as possible. I was also trying out the tech tree (Altarians I was playing.) Well, everyone hated me throughout the game beacause of the aceson attempt, and I was tiptoeing around them, due to the fact that I had never built any military. Well, I'd finished researching all the new bits of the tech-tree, and there were still aout a hundred weeks to go on Asencion, So, being me, I decided to try out the terror stars. I thought the other eight races would go mad, seeing as how we were all confined to one star system each.
But... No. It was after I wiped out the second to last race that I really started laughing. I'd never built a military at all, not even a defender from the standards, I was the most hated race out of the nine, and yet they were still letting me go around with my one Terror star and nothing else, killing them all. The weakest one of the races could have destroyed my empire without effort, but they never did. So, Acension, Terror Stars, and the least liked race in the galaxy, without a military, but they never even declared war on me. Hmm...
