Hmm,

If Rav has better tech and more men. Then I made some pretty awful faction choices. I thought economy and production would be a bit more important, but I was wrong :P To be honest, If Rav has more men in one army than I have in my entire standing army then I am pretty damn ****ed. Without even thinking about the number of troops Novae has.

sorta related, How do reserve armies work? I mean can I actually use them? because at the moment I am only using 20% of the forces I could.

Also How exactly can you tell where people's armies are, and how big they are? I made my army up in minute detail so that you can easily tell how many men there are, what weapons they have etc. but I don't see anyone else doing that, or have i completely missed the point of the military making?

It's more important in the long run. You can outproduce and outlast him in a long war.

Now, him and Novae combined, probably not. Your economy would allow you to outlast them if you can hold out long enough, but I expect that will be difficult.

Also, he may have higher tech, but it makes his stuff more expensive and can complicate his supply lines if he overuses it.

He doesn't. He deployed a force of 2 million men to attack, which my my reckoning should be two army groups using the 'standard' force org.

Your armies are quite large, by the way.

You have to mobilize your economy for war. They'll become available about a week afterwards.

Since you're already at war with two other factions I assume you would be at a war footing, but that's up to you.

You have a point there, Rav and Novae should have told me where their stuff was coming from. You may have a chance to counter-attack Rav before he reaches the hive, in that case. Sorry about that.

Rav's not organizing the military himself, mind, so he just has a "standard" force org for his infantry that doesn't excel at anything in particular. No bonuses to his support capabilities for having unusually concentrated amounts of it, in other words.

Great, now I need a new victim! >_<

Open question for the moderator - does this mean there's a pile of hive complexes ripe for the looting, or do they retroactively vanish?

Also - the army group that should be at Asephor by now was moving along the underground rail-links from the central clusters.

It means they're NPCs now. Unless somebody can come up with a good reason why they'd just suddenly collapse without warning, anyway. :P
