Sure is doom to my FPS. Even when I attack a planet on the other side of my empire that massive group decides it wants to send some forces over and my system starts to crawl.

So, I pushed out, build my fifth city, and then built the Galactic Capital (no response Exo?). Unlocked Battleships and the Dreadnought. Man is that thing huge (with an even larger icon).

And then it scanned for the final shard.

Which is on a place called Preliumtarn, marked with P0:

Do you mean to say your spire capital fleet (with DN and BBs) can't just sail straight through AI space wherever it jolly well pleases, at this point?

Won't I still trigger Deepstrike threat? (or does that just attack my fleet?)

Ah, right, deepstrike.  Yea, I'd say glass a planet every 4 hops, but perhaps that would be too much AIP?

Kind of a question of whether you'd rather deal with the deepstrike stuff (which shouldn't be too awful on that difficulty), deal with the AIP (not a huge deal on Fallen Spire), or just not get the final shard.

I'll try a beeline first and see if I can handle the deepstrike. That's quick to test.

If that doesn't work I will go planet hopping. The AIP shouldn't be a problem since this is the last shard and I should be winning within an hour of bringing it back.

Question: Do I need to TAKE a planet every four hops or just kill it off?

EDIT: The latter.

Things were proceeding pretty well. I hadn't lost many ships in the first few jumps.

Then I hit a Special Forces Alarm.

And it triggered.

11000+ ships are now headed for my fleet.

Oh, wait, I made a wrong turn. I don't actually have to go into that system.

While my fleet was away an Exo happened. Now, my defenses can handle Exo's at the moment.

What they can't handle is an Exo PLUS 2k threat deciding to join in.

And unfortunately I am out of time. I will not be able to finish this game.

It was fun though. :)

And I will be back. I promise.

Aw, and you were doing well :)

Glad you had fun; I hope your journey is safe. 

AIW may or may not be recognizeable when you get back ;)

It will still be the second best game ever made. :)
