Thanks Keith.

I see your point. I probably will still make the attempt. One is level 7 the other is 6 and (gulp) one is an avenger. =/ 

I guess victory is not assured!

The avenger by itself, if you prepare appropriately, isn't so bad. If you aren't prepared...

Interestingly, I haven't come close to winning since before Avengers were introduced.

Here is another instance of my frustration with the game.

For the first time I decided to use the random script features that uses all the expansions.  I've crawled my way to the point where I can win. I had to avoid planets that trigger the rocket corps. I had to tunnel deep into AI territory to get the final "A" shield.  I have the first AI home planet weakened and ready for the push and I'm near the second as well and this time around I've done it with just armored and regeneration golems.

However, now that I'm poised to win I've lost heart. I know that as soon as I do get the "You Win"...    Nothing really will change. I'll end up turtling if I want to keep playing and most of long line of planets I've captured will fall.

The only fun factor was seeing if I could engineer a win, but once I realized I could - the wind is knocked out of my sails because there isn't really ANY victory. What's the point to go on now that I know I can win.

For all of you holdouts, do you begin to see my point?

Yes, I see that you have drawn attention and bumped your own topic repeatedly now. Everyone understood you before (although I understand what you're really doing more than others).

AI Wars is more about challenging yourself. Along that theme, if you really want a "I beat the AI" goal, I suggest capturing all the planets on the map.
