Apologies for asking, this is a bit difficult to search for.
"Q: What does gate raiding really accomplish? I was reading that there are situations where enemy waves appear from nowhere - because while they have no immediate gate connections, they do still warp things to their planets and then walk them over.
A: The AI will always attack your planets directly if possible. That rule you are referring to only kicks in if there is literally no way for them to do that."
Does this mean that a) if I leave one gate adjacent to one of my worlds, all waves will come through that gate? Or b) If I have a section of worlds with no gates adjacent, these will be vulnerable to cross-planet wandering type waves, even if I have one warp gate somewhere else?
AI Worlds with gates destroyed
AI Worlds with gates left
Will planet B receive wandering unannounced waves, or will every wave hit planet F? I assume everything will go through F, but the other planets will still be subject to special forces raids, border aggression, CPAs, etc.
