Question

Postby is_a_art » Wed Nov 24, 2010 7:51 pm

I have a question about a particular replay.

http://ai-contest.com/visualizer.php?game_id=8518960

Could someone please explain what happens from turn 6 to turn 7? Why does red get a free 25 size fleet that is sent from the red home base to the blue home base? Why didn't the blue size 31 destroy these from turn 6 to turn 7?

Thanks.

The 25 fleet is sent out the turn before the blue fleet lands, leaving the red home world with 26 ships, plus the 5 production when the blue 31 fleet hits. Sending that 25 fleet is what took the red home planet from 46 to 26 (21 plus 5 growth).

I suspect the confusion is due to the 25 ship fleet not being very visible on the turn immediately after it departs.

If you hover your mouse over the neutral planet on the left with 23 ships (the one about to be gobbled up by blue), red's 25-ship fleet should be highlighted.
