Rebalance Expediton Encounter Attacks

  • Expeditions (particularly in early game) seem to give out an alien attack 1/8 of the time (I use discoverer). Having the aliens fleet based off of my fleet means that no matter what I field it is a complete wipe every time. I ran the expedition calculator on some test fleets and it looks like I wont start surviving these attacks for weeks, and even then I will be taking catastrophic losses. It seems that, due to the enemy fleet being based off of mine, the best option is to send nothing but cargoes as that weakens the enemy fleet more than sending a heavy escort. My suggestion/request is that attacking fleets not be based off of player ships, and that early-game expeditions have some way of surviving alien attacks (by sending more combat ships, the player should be rewarded not punished)
