To the Veterans of Phoenix Point: Year One Edition,
Is it possible to counter the doomsday clock indefinitely? Or will the enemies simply keep growing to a point where they’ll simply overwhelm the resistance?
Is it possible to reduce the number of player-controlled havens to only one and continue to eke out an existence by defending the sole haven and raiding the nearby enemy (Pandoran) bases?

From what I have heard it is possible to prolong campaign on lower difficulties, but… That is kind of boring.
Not forever. It can take a long time before the clock expires, even if one does nothing. Starvation will eventually win out.
@MadSkunky did a test. Hopefully he can share it again in this thread.
It can be read here:
I wanted to see what happens if I simply let the game go after I researched anything, activated all PP bases and just don’t do the necessary missions or researches that bring me to an end.
The Situation in my game since several in game months, actual date is 20.08.2047, population at 31%:
All PP bases activated, all with Satellite Uplink to scan bases and Mist Repellers in reach of several heavens.
Anything researched except the three worm vivisections, the Virophage Injec…
This veteran difficulty campaign lasted more than 1 year and 3 months and Anu has inevitable won the faction wars.
Because there are a lot of patches since then it can be different in the current build, but I believe something like that is still possible.
Of course, it won’t take that long at higher levels of difficulty.
Actually, with the latest changes it could actually last longer as there are fewer haven defenses.
Tnx for the link.
