I’m in a game at the moment where the Pandorans have started fielding upgraded untils based on the special antediluvian mining locations special materials.
Only issue is the Pandorans have never controlled any of the mining locations to have any of these materials, and appeared to have been able to research these upgrades prior to any locations even being excavated.
Maybe this is due to the Pandorans controlling some of the locations before I discovered them - makes sense in the arms race of research they might get there first - but they still would have to deal with the guardians. As the guardians are still there for all the sites I haven’t taken it’s fair to say this isn’t the case (or this is another issue where they can bypass the guardians?).
This doesn’t seem right. And yes they are not just researching the upgrades - they are fielding them.
