So I'm close to the end and I already have way too much Military Strength to get the worst ending. In fact, my readiness is over 90%, so I think I would have difficulty getting the worst ending even in a new game.
Is there some way I can lower my current Military Strength, either for a single character/career or by reducing my Readiness, or am I doomed to replay? I know Readiness decays naturally but it's much too slow.
I've already completed most sidequests (properly) so there's not much option to deliberately mess up quests unless it can be done retroactively.
