Winning at 'Normal' level

Post by gfc1963 » Tue May 07, 2013 6:36 pm

I have played at Normal level at elast 6 times now and cannot get anywhere! It seems to take forever to get research done and when I meet other races they are miles ahead in tech. Just played a game with four races so I thought I would have a chance of getting somewhere. FAT CHANCE!!! It took me at least 40 turns just to get point defence and then at the end I only had 10 colonies when I encountereted the Liir. They had plasma cannns and projectors and I just had basic missiles, which got shot down easliy. Any ideas folks? Many thanks.

Welcome to the boards. Research and research speed depends a lot on how well your economy is developed. Early expansion in lieu of research will help wonders. Here is just one of many threads that talk about early expansion in the game (along with some techs you would be wise to get to help with expansion).

Also heres a link to the wiki that lists some basic strategy and more economy threads along with TARs of what other players are doing inside there games.

By the way if your playing the demo, your hamstringing your gameplay. Not sure if my post will help with the demo. So much has changed! Rush out and get the Complete game right away!
