I think I understand the basic structure of Endless Space. That said, the first 50 or so turns in a standard game are fairly crucial. What should my focus be in this early game?
- What should be the priority? Science? Growth? Improvements? Perhaps colonization above all?
- Should I invest in as many heroes as possible to get them leveling up early?
- Is it worthwhile to build early defenses, or neglect defense almost entirely for the first few dozen turns?
