Conquer All Max Difficulty
« on: August 21, 2014, 05:58:50 PM »
What is the max difficulty you might successfully be able to conquer *all* planets on? I suspect it would not be hard on difficulty 1, but does anyone who has done this before have experience on how high is actually feasible (for an 80 planet map)?

I think it sounds fun to try a playthrough where I get to unlock so many techs, but still have a reasonable chance of eventually winning.

Until recently it was possible to do this on diff 7/7, though I suspect it would be pretty hard now outside FS.
Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games? Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!

Yeah, I mean on vanilla game (no special campaign settings). Maybe I'll try diff 6/6 (I've only ever beaten the game before on difficulty 7 so I'm not exactly an expert) and see where I can get to.

10/10. See: http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,15077.0.html

Helped a little by the fact that it was a ten planet cage match, of course ;)

For a normal 80 planet map, I think there's a few people who've managed it on diff 7 or a smidge higher.
