Would be really nice to get these back. Perhaps if you weakend them up a bit or increased the chance of them blowing up in your face. Even better, if the SD sensors on the planets detect the nova, they can send it back where it came from and destroy your ship. So then you'd have to worry about backfires AND the planets sending them back at you. Would make it a whole lot riskier for the attacker. Endy with 160 cloak against 360 SD sensors wouldn't stand a chance. You'd have to use a decent ship to do it.

Man ya just dont need them ;) You should have to work to knock down SD, so dont expect to see them back ...at least till Research and build kicks in and there is an equitable counter.

No way man. there is plenty of attacking going on already. Just look at how rankings have flipped in games since you started the .30 test games/tournaments. For players to be able to attack others 5x there score just because of nova's would make the game unrealistic. I can't see much of a counter to using those because the bottom line is if a team with say a total score of 25 million pts. could take down a 2 player team that has maybe 100 million pts/score all because of having more turns and/or lucky hits with nova ?? Nah

There used to be this player named Kwae Zar who explained this better in a blog. :)
