My rant... I think the Galactic war would be a lot less frustrating if you actually got half decent upgrades after a hard fight. I just spent 2 hours fighting an AI (relentless) that was on another planet in an ocean with only the artillery upgrade (and 2 useless upgrades). It's just a grind of spamming artillery, air defence and orbital defence on the shore and constantly trying to build shipyards until I finally managed to get one built. Even then I took another hour of spamming ships until I finally got him. I couldn't stop his eco since I had no orbital tech upgrades and he had jigs on a gas giant. Anyway, after this long hard fight I was expecting something cool. Maybe, I would get some advanced units, perhaps some obital tech or even just a basic air factory would have made this worthwhile... Nope, I get compression storage. yay! *sarcasm*. Even if I had a free slot I wouldn't bother with it. After 6 wins I'm stuck with: Advanced Defence Technology (I don't have any advanced units yet...) Bot Engine Tech (I don't even have bots...) Artillery Tech All of the available missions have 3+ planets (so probably 2 AI opponents). I don't think I'm going to make it to 7 wins Please make the upgrade system a little smarter so you can't end up in this situation.
