Next loss. This time it were Zenith Blade Spawners. My attack waves just didnĀ“t do anything when I attacked my first system. I gave up after the third attempt. (MK I planet with 50 Ships vs. my 200 Ships including 4 Riot Starships)
Do you mean Spire Blade Spawners or Zenith Viral Shredders, or?

The blade spawners have certainly been a pain for a lot of folks, though their numbers have been significantly reduced of late.

Ah, I meant the Spire Blade Spawners. Shredders are no problem. I had about 6 in this system, and they took down my fleet pretty quickly. I wonder what will be the next surprise this game has to offer :D

Campaign 7 (2 x easier AI, simple, Difficulty 7, Turtle/Tank, No expansions activated)

After all that losses I thought that deactivating the expansions would be more suitable for learning the game. I got good news and bad news. Bad news: I had two MK IV Planets right next to my home system, the good news: I had Laser Gatlings  ;D. About an hour later, three MK IV Planets were gone. (Their were another one right behind the first as well as some MK III). The enemys have Vampire Claws and of course Tanks/Armor Ships.

Yea, the game can be easier to learn without some of the more exotic stuff turning up :)  Laser Gatlings are flimsy, but with that firepower still a solid choice for bonus ship type.
