Orbital bombardment

#1 Post by Magnate »

Hi all,

Does orbital bombardment with EMP Pulse Generator reduce pop or troops or both?

If it doesn't reduce troops, is there anything else that does, other than landing your own troops?

Bombardment reduces population. Max Troops may depend on population, so it also can reduce maximum troops.

Else invasion is the only way (currently).

If the colony is reduced to an outpost it looses all pop related troops one turn later. That is often a lot, but you don't get the species...
