Endless Space 2 | New Player Tutorial | Part 1

Welcome to a New Player's Guide to Endless Space 2. This series will focus on the first 50 turns to lead to a successful campaign.

We will be playing as the United Empire!

After playing and posting a few series I have been asked to do a new player tutorial and examine how to play for 50 turns.

This is my attempt to help New Players to the game.

The full playlist



Episodes are going up every day at 10:00 am. If you have any suggestions, tips, or tricks you want highlighted let me know :).

I have so much fun with this game and love sharing it with everyone.

Episode 1 is exploring character and galaxy generation and planet management. Episode two begins exploration, while episode 3 coming out Monday at 10 : am est will be looking at colonization.
_____________________________________________________________________________________
Endless Space 2 is a turn-based strategy, science fiction 4X game developed by Amplitude Studios. It is the sequel to Endless Space, which was released in 2012

Endless Space 2 is a Strategic Space Opera set in a mysterious universe.
Your story unfolds in a galaxy that was first colonized by God-like beings known as the “Endless”, who rose and fell eons ago. All that remains of them are mystical ruins, powerful artifacts, and a strange, near-magical substance known as Dust.

Endless Space 2 takes the classic “one more turn” formula to new heights. You will explore mysterious star systems, discover the secrets of ancient races, build colonies on distant planets, exploit trade routes, develop advanced technologies of unthinkable power; and, of course encounter new life forms to understand, to court or to conquer.

As a leader, you have to manage your populations like never before as they react dynamically to your decisions and to their environment, expressing their will through political parties, dictating the laws that your Senate can pass. Will you be a beloved natural leader or will you manipulate your populations to your benefit?

Sophons Expert Guide - Endless Space 2 - Turns 1-30

First 30 turns of 4XAlchemist playing Sophons from Endless Space 2 on Endless Difficulty with Hard Pirates. Extensive commentary on multiple Sophon-specific and general strategies. Now with game sounds and music =)

This is the longest of our videos because the Sophons take a ton of tweaking every turn to optimize. I hope you would agree that it's worth it! (IMO it's the only way for these guys to keep up with other races)

Enjoy!

Highlights:
+ Turn 8 - fighting our neighbor for outposts
+ Turn 12 - Hero comes home at level 4 just in time
+ Turn 19 - finish win 3 battles Sophons quest
+ Turn 22 - Sophon attack ships with upgraded lasers unlocked. Discussion of optimal builds for early Sophon attack ships
+ Turn 30 - upgraded ships, upgraded systems, upgraded weapons, upgraded planet settling. Sophons off to the races.

Turn 30 Savegame file on Google Drive:

My notes on the topics covered in this video:
+ Hero can stay out since he's an awesome fighter until the turn just before you finish MIC
+ Building a second booper early is better than spending the dust because you need the dust to rush your first outpost
+ Look to upgrade the north side early and get early ships to go make the wars
+ Scout ships suck as combatants, but at least have 2 weapon slots. Use missiles and go en masse
+ Every time your planets have something new to build and you have somewhere to expand, look to get better ship upgrade, laser, and CP techs
+ Early market is a huge benefit since you'll be dust starved and will want to do a fair amount of ship upgrading. No dust is too much
+ Do the military quests and try to fight your three battles before turn 20 so that you can get the laws quest finished in your first election. This makes things go way quicker.
+ Hero leveling: Move, Move, Science, Fleet dmg, Fleet dmg, Laser dmg
+ Soph Kilo class ships have 3 defense slots. This makes them ideal for surviving and carrying beams to wreck opposing fighters. Don't go overboard on it though.
+ /u/The176thPbPGuy on reddit did an analysis of all ES2 ships and in fact the sophons have the strongest carriers in the game: they are a late game military powerhouse -
+ Still experimenting with all lasers or a beam/laser mix. If all lasers clump in the middle flotilla. If mix spread out evenly to match your opponent
