just move your ships and everything flows by itself.
Yep, but still -- there are some specific decisions to take;
1- I have to defeat the last opponent on Immense.
2- We're pretty much dead even on number of planets, *amount* of currently available ships.
3- I declare war.
4- I must "design" multiple ways to attack, invade, destroy and take over whatever is necessary from a series of different planets sparsely distributed in my zones of control.
5- Build, deploy and send everything on their way to conquest.
Thus, micro-managing of enemy's fleets eradication processing.
6- Pouf, they start dropping Spies.
7- Bang, all starbases & Trading routes are now under continual attacks.
Thus, do i keep up and recuperate? Micro-Managing too.
It's not the quantity, it's if some automation (Governors, RallyPoints) ***can*** be used effectively during any given situations ***without*** Micro-Managing beyond mind focusing attention to some details.
