Title says it.  After days of losing and refining strategies, we FINALLY beat 5 merciless dominion, all on one team, vs 1 borg (him) and 1 fed (me.)  If anyone is interested in the strategy, I'd be happy to share.

Map was battlefield defense, default settings other than starting with double resources and ally trading on.

Fleet ops is a really great addon / mod / TC, whatever you want to call it.  Has made for many fun nights so far.

haha, just saw this post now, I don't know what it was, but I must have missed the map difference between battlepit, and battlepit defense. Or just not noticed those 9 moon pairs.

I played against 3 Federation merciless all on one team. I didn't do the double resources or anything. But I did leave shroud and fog off. But I'm pretty sure it can be done with them left on as well. Even four Federation Merciless AI might be doable.

I played as Martok.

Although, I would consider Dominion AI to be perhaps a bit more difficult than Federation. Although I'm not sure how the AI's react when they can't expand fully. Pretty much they are restricted to their original double moon pair on that map. Quite convenient when you get 9 moon pairs. Dominion seems to tech up faster, and can certainly spam more ships.

I'm guessing a starbase turret wall was involved though. That map can easily be well fortified.

What race did you play as?

Klingons with cloak and a steady fleet build is pretty solid gameplay against the AI.

Well, with double resources, I'm guessing they each sent their constructors to first build 4 starbases to start blocking off the entrance.

Then get loads of refineries up. Finish the starbases. Some turrets. Then build up massive fleets.
