I didn't get lucky with other useful races early in either game. So no natural population growth that I could borrow. By the time I run into other empires, I'm noticeably behind on tech and ship production.

So I'm not certain the issue here is so much "Orthin are OP" as it is that winning as humans on a Brutal map is just exceedingly hard. Which is maybe one to file under "working as intended"?

SgtArmyGuy wrote:Maybe a re-check on the victory conditions of Council Victory is in order? I mean, the general situation in the galaxy can still be damn interesting at this stage (for example in that last Human game I uploaded, there were still strong empires with strong fleets on the board). However, you just win because you have the most pop.
