ok so the problem im having is in the begining of the game i do fine against a normal Ai. i stay back and play a defensive game building up my fleets and hangers/repair bays ect. only problem i have is when the Ai has 1 or 2 planets left i switch to aggresive and try to wipe them out and i always either get pummled or they back track and colinize planets next to the ones im attacking. i try to go aggresive because i dont want to give them time to build up a fleet and defences while im preparring to attack
so Should i stay back and prepare more or is there a diff. strat to being aggresive or is there something completely different i can try?
Another quick 2 question if yall dont mind.
1. If i have a fleet on a diff. planet then where my frigate factory is ,is there a way to have them auto join that fleet if i put the rally point on the planet with the fleet?(sorry if that to confusing)
2.when i have a fleet i always put the auto attack "on" but when i zoom into the fleet they never are auto attack stuctures like labs/trade ports ect. is that normal( do you have to micro manage that much) or am i not doing something right?
If anyone can help and tell me how to upload replays of games played i can try to upload one to give yall a better idea of what im doing( or not doing)
Thanks for all the help in advance
