Re: What space combat games do you play?

I like the strategic game so I play Stellaris a lot. We have a group that plays every Sunday night.
I know my kids play some tactical game, but I will have to find out what it is.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss in your family.

I would be interested in joining a campaign that you run in the future.

Re: Stellaris

Anyone have any comments on the latest update?

I think they made the game better but increased the micro management of jobs instead of tile constructions.
And the AI doesn't do smart things right now around building upgrades.

If anyone wants to play multiplayer my steam handle is practicalm.

Re: Empire Ratings

Some comments,

1. You might want to give all 3. Mean, the Mode (to the nearest 1000, and Median

Re: Stellaris

I missed the original conversation about Stellaris but now with many DLC packs and many free improvements, I've been playing this game a lot. It scratches enough of my 4x game itch and while I love running Starfire campaigns, Stellaris lets me play. There is a lot of buzz about the next update which...

The Last Angel - Spacebattles.com

I've been reading The Last Angel (up to chapter 23 as of today) and I recommend it.

Not really very Starfire oriented but a good space fight story.
