I just recently tried a game with two Neinzul AIs, and the new minor factions. As well as Hybrids (+Advanced) on on of the AIs.
The AI in itself is as expected, but the Hybribs like attacking me. Luckily I managed to find an efficient defence from them with a few Beam turrets + grav turrets. Also forts
The Perservation warden howwever, presents another challenge. They spawn all the time, and a lot of them (must be at least 10 of them at any given time if not more, I do not have total scout covarage of all the planets teh waves come from), and keep bombarding my worlds constantly. Luckil my main defence with the beams and gravs shread em to pieces, but on my outlying colonies demands more attention constantly.
Currently I use a detatchment of Zenith Beam frigates to deal with em, the AOE beams work well in that respect, but I would also like to have my beam frigates with my main fleet on occation.
So I am wonderng what tactics you use to deal with these waves? (one grav turrets and a few tractors gets shredded instntly by tem as well btw ^^).
