Wound up dominating 77% of a 142 star system.
Both of my allies hate each other. I pick one over the other for more alliance perks. I have SUCH a good relationship with the other one that they're still my friends despite the -20 diplomatic actions on it.
I figure they'll eventually hate me enough to start attacking me. I park my main fleet in their home system just in case. My titan doing 550 beam damage and all. (Running Distant Stars).
I come back the next evening, because I just alt tabbed and did my daily things/routines, and the game is still going.
28 hours worth of it. They're still hacking at each other. Hating on each other. And still lovey dovey with me.
And its so sluggish I can't do anything anyways.
I hope Ironclad is building a 64 bit engine if they decide to do SoaSE 2. I mean, really.
