When your relation to fractions reaches a certain level, they will reveal locations of all their bases. The problem is that if base on another end of the word will be attacked by Pandora, and we don’t have the way to reach that base yet, we will lose relation with that fraction because we did not defend something that we can’t reach.
Another thing is the question of what Phenix Point is in this game? Babysitter for another fraction? If they will be attacked and we will not defend them they will be grumpy about that?
