    Just wanted to share this screenshot of my current game, Soyuz difficulty, massive map. I am playing as Daoming. I have activated the beacon and I am about 20 turns away from winning the game. I see Kavitha has also activated the beacon and is about 30 turns away from victory. I will win first if I just sit around and wait but I thought it might be more fun to destroy her beacon, seen on the far right in the screenshot to guarantee my complete superiority.

    I've amassed a neat invasion force of advanced Purity units (3 devastors in the back, 4 Dragoons and 1 LEV Destroyer in the front with a true autosled on my left flank):


    I'm thinking I should take her city easily. :D

    I think that is going to be one broken Beacon! I love the sight of a purity force amassing.

    Thanks. I captured Mandira and successfully destroyed KP's Beacon but then the AI brought in the reinforcements, a bunch of supremacy subs and cruisers that wiped out over half my force and retook Mandira. I fled back to my territory with a LEV destroyer, a dragoon and a devastor. But I accomplished my goal of destroying the enemy Beacon. I won a Contact victory about 9 turns later. :)

    Yeah, Mandira looked deceptively unprotected. The AI had a bunch of cruisers and subs outside my area of vision so I did not see them until after I started my attack. Then suddenly, they all pounce on me. The AI had 2 of those beautiful looking pearly white purity-supremacy hybrid cruisers to the south of Mandira. They were pretty tough against my hover units.

    If I had used a navy that probably would have been better. At level 17, my purity navy would have been able to stop KP's subs and cruisers. But I did not have a coastal city on that side of the continent facing KP. I could have settled a new city on the coast, used trade routes to convert the outpost to city quickly and then used my diplo reserves to spawn a navy. But I figured why wait when I can just use hover units.

    You call that an invasion force? I thought you just came for a fun little skirmish.

    Now this is a real invasion force. :lol:

    Spoiler :


    With even more units not even shown in the screenshot.

    :eek: I concede the point. :)

    I guess, since my purpose was to kill the beacon rather than take her territory, it was technically more of a raiding force than an invasion force. :D

    I just use a hover tank or two for victory improvement destruction.

    The AI is too stupid to defend it and it's forces is always off somewhere.

    Last time I tried that, my unit of Maestros got bombed by two cities at once. Damn Mass Drivers.
