Am I seriously the only one who has found a VERY effective counter to the nova-spam?
A shield generator on each of your planets pretty much makes the novalith useless (unless they fire 10 at one asteroid, which they won't)
Then, how would you counter it if you are Vasari or Advent? Both races dont have planetary shields and axillary government.
Also, countering a Nova spam isnt that fun to begin with. That, i think is the main problem. I think a limit for the number of super weapons buildable if the damage isnt reduced. Or reduce the damage if things were kept the way it is now.
I do enjoy playing as Rebel in aggressively killing off their Novaliths. However the constant bombardment at my planets isnt fun at all, if it manage to kill of my planets each time it fires. I think i slight damage nerf has to be applied.
I think it's a pretty complicated situation though as if you overnerf novalith, you'll get a problem of making Loyalist too weak. If it's left the way it is now, it will be incredibly annoying if you add Advent and Vasari in.
