I enjoyed it, won one main game, however not really understanding how the sliders really work stops me from replaying this.

Like, does the attack slider affect the rate of dots choosing to go to enemy lines? Or its their actual attack stat. Many times I've had the Travel slider maxed and dots didn't want to go to enemy planets.

Thanks for playing! The attack slider determines the chance they’ll choose to attack, and the travel slider determines the chance they’ll launch themselves to form a new connection. Hope that helps!

Oh thanks. By new connection you mean traveling to an empty planet that was just connected? I thought setting spawn and travel at 50% meant they will spawn and replenish troops on friendly planets. :D I'll give it another go then.

Spawn is just for multiplying on the planet they’re already on. Good luck!
