43 Vasari Scouts. Neatly arranged. But why?
The Hard AI player (this is the replay of a 10:35 hours game on a large map vs hard AIs) already invaded my Empire with a giant fleet, jumped to the sun and the fleet size bar jumped to maximum. I was really afraid.
It turned out that it were some 80+ Scouts!!! The two Starbases that I placed near the Sun quickly took care of them.
What is wrong there, what caused the AI to build so many Scouts? It was down to some 5-7 systems pretty quickly, but had really good metal income, more than me for instance.
Did you ever suffer the "AI scout swarm syndrome", too? This game was started and finished with Entrenchment 1.02.
