View Full Version : Legendary Victories - too easy?

I just had the most epic battle scene and earned a Legend Win within 5 minutes of creating the galaxy.

When I loaded into the game, the sector was awash with bosses and ancients. I entered one mega battle with 6 bosses (Impeccable, Bloodhawk, Shade, Dismantler, Blackburn, and Panther) as well as an Ancient Rizak Destroyer, Ancient Zarlok Destroyer, an Ancient Weapon, and an Artifact of Doom. Killing all of them was enough to get me a victory. :D

This quick game was fun for me, but perhaps for the sake of balance, the quests to kill Ancients should produce less Legend Points. (I think most of them are worth 10 Legend Points, so you only need to kill five for a victory on a Tiny galaxy.)

Incidentally, I like that Drakk provide a planetary service that enables you to collect extra Legend Points - it's very useful for the galaxies where there is a shortage of bosses, ancients, and rescue missions.

Yet another reason why this game is great. :) This sounds like a very interesting outlier, rather than the norm. I don't think I've ever had that many ancients in any size sector as of yet, certainly not all at the start. In my experience, I've only been able to get legendary victories in tiny sectors anyway. :)

That sounds awesome and very rare! I vote for not changing a thing, and maybe that will happen to me someday. :)

Yeah it was awesome. I wish I'd taken some screenshots - it was a chaotic mess! I was lucky that I had a strong build and had created a galaxy that was a few levels below my own, so I was able to blast all of the nasties into one humongous pile of components. :D

I just thought afterwards that maybe it was unfair to win so quickly, but perhaps getting 4 ancients at the loading jump gate is as much a risk as a blessing. If you survive, perhaps you do deserve the win.

I got a similar sector. I did not realize that there was a chance to get a really quick win until I met the Cortex at the two minute mark, and then I rushed towards the win, buying gates and paying for jumps... I still barely managed to beat the time.
