Okay, removing flood infection research and lowering the exp from flood pods? WTF?

You like getting pounded late game by flood spores coming out of no where? The reason they are removing the Infection research is because it is too OP and the reason they are lowering the XP from the flood ships is because if you place a nuke into the center of a swarm your cap is level ten pretty much instantly.

Wait, so the anchor stations have no guns but anti-air? so they are just giant fighter hangars, trade ports and ship building stations now? Guess I will have to find another way to defend wormholes

So that's why the dev's don't want us playing single-player; the A.I. still treats them like normal starbases. If only my internet wasn't so intermittent...

Well, they can still function as normal starbases too... just gotta keep em out of the action...

Plus, there's another class of station in the works... it's much more effective at defense... the anchor is more focused on support
