There's an ironic beauty to Miriam winning this war in part by out-teching her enemy.

That is the beauty of Miriam. You see, everyone underestimates Miriam saying Miriam can not tech. They say Miriam sucks. But, played well... Miriam can run away with it. I have gained tech because I have pretty good probes. I also through "religious conversion" have a vast empire that I have built network nodes and biology labs in :D

Miriam is truly sick and OP. In my opinion one of the most powerful factions in the game period. I would have hated to have to do this game with IMO, an inferior faction like University (at least compared to Miriam).

I will take Miriam over anyone. Even Yang and Sparta are weaklings compared to the Sister....

Speaking of the love and power of the Sister... behold a thing of beauty matched only by the Sistine Chapel...

I will say that when I was starting out with the SMAC demo, I definitely noticed Miriam was the most frustrating opponent in the first 100 years.

Yeah, the logic I always heard and followed as don't mess with Miriam too early unless you know you can take her out quickly, and don't wait too long on Yang because he'll become so deeply entrenched that you will never harrow him out.

AI Morgan is a little like Yang that way, too - take him out early, or take him out late.  Not so doable at MY 50-100.

Another Comrade base falls as we advance on what we believe is the last stronghold of what has been a worthy opponent, The Crimson Comrades....

Okay, it appears I have finally broken the back of that vast Antimind offensive. I will use air to guard formers and units at the spot.

Antimind air power remains a threat, but the Fields of Blood appear to have nothing I them... except blood and the stench of piles of dead bodies and husks of vehicles buried in fungus. For now...

Make some AA copters if you've not already, those things are amazing at killing huge numbers of bomber aircraft, and where they are now they're out of range of interceptor defense.

Also, reading and enjoying.

The last game I played was a Librarian late game conquest victory in vanilla SMAC and my god digging Morgan out of the tiny continent that he had built for himself was nearly impossible. Once I beat him the rest of the game fell fairly smoothly, but that was unreeeeal.

Typically with Morgan I don't even bother attacking his bases until I weakened him enough: I just sit outside his bases so he starves and withers into nothing, Morganite bases are usually pathetically small anyways.

I will :D.

Air got the former en route. I thought all the visible Antimind jets hit Lawyer targets that round and would need to refuel. But, I was wrong.

I notice some more troops on that hill above Field of Blood and hit them.
