    How is this possible? The game never manages to be challenging for me. Are you using the earliest possible endgame date?

    Vanilla endgame date (2400) I think.

    I'm not exactly a pro player.

    Don't worry, the Crisis AI is pretty retarded. They'll just fly around and blow up starbases without actually attacking any worlds.
    If you had a habitat at Egress you could have trapped them there and still kept control of it.
    Also, spam shields and arc emitters. The Unbidden really hates those.

    Yeah at game creation you can change habitable planet frequency and tech research speed.

    So, proclaimed myself Galactic Emperor for the first time. Immediately, my very successful Federation (of me and my vassals) got dissolved, and I lost my 4 Federation fleets, as well as all those sweet, sweet level 5 resource production bonuses. In exchange I got... not much, honestly? The Imperial Palace on Terra might look nice, but meh. The Imperial Armada is named nicely, but I already controlled it as Custodian when it was called the GDF. Meh.

    OK, so supposedly no member state of the Galactic Imperium can declare war on me. Giving up my Federation fleets is not fair trade, seeing as how the only remaining things to do is to conclude the War in Heaven and the Ubidden Crisis. The fleets would have been more useful. And the resource bonuses! It ITZed my gas/crystal/motes production. Also, I get +6 influence and +20% diplo weight. Still not fair trade.

    So how does multiplayer even work? My average stellaris game takes about 20-30 hours, does it take that long in multi?

    Needs to be played over multiple sittings, yes.

    Are you in CthuluIsSpy? We're starting in a couple of hours I think.

    Apart from GrafvonMoltke's internet being powered by an ox-driven mill we had a pretty good first session.

    The only thing I wanted for this woke piece of shit was CK-like diplomacy, with lineage and dynasty mechanics for monarchies.

    Imagine having to have your son marry a squid-princess to secure peace, or assassinating a the head of a rival empire.

    Years later and all they've done is add some stuff that was basically already there and streamline it for consoles.
