Yeah it got to a point where i just : (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ because it literally became too much every bloody time i'd try to move a bit to take a planet or harass they would just send some capital ships backed by a titan and dreadnaught and prompt me to have all hands on deck. While the trade alliance is powerful they too have their weaknesses in combat which are a poor selection of standard cruisers and frigates to employ in battle. I find their power lies in their economy and in their capital ships (tians and dreadnaughts included).

* TradeAlliance research is slow
* You can't buy ungrades for Capitalship levels
* Their defense platforms are quite powerful
* Yes, their lighter frigates are pretty powerful so early game expansion can be rapid ... but you have to do a lot of parallel research to keep up the winning edge

Also it doesnt help that my "frontline" happened to be that mineral planet followed by a ring world behind it. If i lost them i would be done for because they held most of my resource mining and shipbuilding facilities.

Thanks to XtremeRoflcopter for putting this Video together.

Quoting XtremeRoflcopter ... "I changed it up a little bit instead of rushing to just crush the opponent with a titan i decided to prolong it and get some shots of a larger battle with more explosions . I was constantly on the back foot though because the A.I just allied and kept sending fleets to try and crush my frontline defences."
