  1. In fairness I think you can level the same criticism about bland leaders to the Endless games. Yes the heroes at least get some flavor text, but mostly they’re a collection of bonuses to this or that. I’ve never really felt compelled to care about them.


  2. Stardock didn’t call in the lawyers first. Check the timeline on the stardock forums. Also ES2 heroes are basically the same. I give a “skill” that adds +20 dust output to the system he’s in. If the numbers for the game were different, such as a systems entire output would be 20 dust max then that bonus would only be +1. So is it just the size of the number that bothers you? I think the number scale is different for those two games is all :)


  3. Very good job, guys. You are really awesome. That’s my feedback! hehe I am really into Stellaris again. God, game is getting better and better. This update changes everything… I am still enjoying it after hundreds and hundreds of hours. Starbases, war exhaustion, casus belli, titans, hyperlane-only… Wow!

  4. What Spartackus said. It wasn’t a well advertised change though, wouldn’t have known if I wasn’t a SD forum regular.
