Hi All,

So we have played through July.

The thing is there is a consistent objective of getting 6 military bases, and there is an end-game upgrade of placing up to two military bases.

So we are now starting with 4 military bases every turn, and only need to build 2 a game (piece of cake) to get a free objective. We could even just do the upgrade once more and get that bonus objective every single time.

What are your thoughts on this? This seems broken. Or (while limiting spoilers) is the game going to adjust for this?

Thanks!

The game changes constantly, so it will adjust. In the meantime, enjoy your easy objective!

You as a team get to pick where you put your energies, so if you choose to make 6 starting military bases, you are forgoing other upgrades.

How overpowered it is, depends on how many of your people can fly between them, so I don't think it's too overpowered, as a lot of times only one or two people can use them as a means of moving around.

I believe the end game upgrade only lets you place a single permanent military base. Not two. The same as for research stations.

This is true. However, you get two end-game upgrades per game, so you only need to devote one more game's upgrades to go from 4 to 6.

Also (end of July spoilers):

The July game win bonus is a permanent military base anywhere in the world at the start of each game played in August

It's not broken.

It's up to you to decide how powerful it is compared with the many other options available to you.
