You think we are not doing that here? We are meta as fuck with overwhelming firepower and advantage. The literal only thing protecting the IS from us is we are the good guys who dont want to do that shit and the fact that trying to conquer them is inefficient as fuck. We could knock over the houses in like 10 turns at most if we wanted but actually doing anything with those worlds would take decades of in game time.SB will always go on path of overwhelming firepower, unless you tell them game is based on different meta. SB is always meta. And even though they will try to go to path of overwhelming firepower because that's only thing they can focus on.
SB diverge from this fact only when they forget they aren't on QQ and go for harem anime logic, in which case Xon's Most Holy Inquisition stomps the game, and everyone returns back to getting more dakka.
