I have an interesting story!
I spotted the defender's fleet a few days ago and considering I didn't do well lately aaaaaand again didn't do well some more even before that, I didn't really have the means to make a profit out of attacking the defender.
I did manage to hit some fleet the defender built from production on the planet, but the defender took the DF so not much profit there, plus the hit was tiny!
Two days pass, I made some adjustments so the fight isn't as ugly but the defender is extremely active, today I almost hit his 15M fleet but then again, nothing, defender lifted the fleet.
I did however spot his main fleet sitting on the same moon!
I decided to go for a mobile, already giving myself a lecture for spending tons of deut for most likely zero profit, colonized, deployed and sent recs to defender's planet.
Lanx showed defender was indeed active, deploying some small cargos to planets around so I assumed he was going to go for a fleetsave soon.
I figured I might get lucky if defender gets distracted while waiting for his cargos to land and decided to send ahead of recs as soon as I stop seeing new activity on lanx.
Lanx activity stopped, I sent the fleet hoping for the best aaaand...
So, Fenrir, welcome to my first advanced hit!

After the hit, we played a little game of cat and mouse since I of course didn't have enough cargos to catch all that booty, so the followups are me pretty much trying to catch what's left to a medium success.
Defender was a very nice sport, congratulated right away and we had a nice chat.
SouEu I wish you very fast FR!
