Added DiffLines:

* YouAreTooLate: This sometimes happens with the Ragnarok titan. If it gets blown up between firing and the weapon taking effect the planet blows up anyway. Happens quite often against AI opponents, which try to time attacks to make you waste resources by finishing it just before their nukes land.

* ExcusePlot: Unlike ''VideoGame/TotalAnnihilation'' or ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander'', the game doesn't present much of a plot or story to the game. There's some background explained on the website, but it's mostly cosmetic.

Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: The background briefings on enemy commanders in Galactic Conquest mode make it clear that defeated Commanders are often captured and reprogrammed to serve a new side rather than destroyed. There is no possible way to do this in-game.

As you might guess from the title, it's another SpiritualSuccessor to ''TotalAnnihilation'' (the other being ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander''), this time on a galactic scale. Not being limited to just a single planet's surface like in its spiritual predecessors, players can now build and deploy armies across multiple planets in a single map.

** A an orbital loader can be equipped with [[GreyGoo locust nanites, which will destroy everything in their path.]]
** A Ragnreock titan can cause a Core-shatting kaboom, which will destroy the planet it's on soon afterward, and most of the [[OneManArmy regular titans are One-Bot Armies.]]
** The use of a hailey engine can allow you to shove one [[ColonyDrop plantiod into another, destroying them both.]]
** And finally, refitting a Metal planet can allow you to use a [[StarWars distinctly familiar]] laser to destroy planets...[[UpToEleven And is reusable, allowing you to kill planets consecutively!

** The titanular Titans are, well, titanic in size compared against the other units.

Added DiffLines:

** Fully activating a metal planet is this even against multiple opponents, since it will then destroy every other planet in the game in rapid succession.

* PointlessSuperweaponPointlessDoomsdayDevice: Launching the last 2 planets at eachother, or using a ragnarock device on your commander's planet is basically suicide...but still amusing.

* PointDefenseless: You should never be that. If you forgot to guard against air or orbital attacks, this could be a game over in less then 30 seconds of the enemy making thier presence known.
