I hope you're all having a great holiday season! I have an interesting new mechanic in this latest update for you to try.
Now, when you destroy an enemy's colony (with Troop Carriers), a portion of the enemy's cash will be transferred from them to you (as if the cash was stored in that colony directly). This means:
- Destroying old empires will be very lucrative (since they'll have a lot of cash stored up) and,
- You should keep as much of your cash in your alliance's bank as possible (where it won't be taken upon defeat).
