Well, not that we've seen yet. I imagine they'd at least be looking to free farhaven (again) and then the collective is stuck in the situation that it doesn't have the firepower and capability with it's current decision making restrictions to tackle the combined forces.Knowles2 wrote: ↑Fri Oct 02, 2020 11:25 amI wonder if this was the AI plan all along, stir up a little war, make a nice conspiracy, get someone to play the hero and everyone singing Kumbaya my lord, signing trade agreements like they are going out of fashion!

It seems no one is declaring war on the collective anyhow.
Their best tactic at this point is probably to go silent again. There didn't seem to be an indication that the saturation point of population would be reached soon. They already have some technological advantages and I imagine they could develop more while nations in peace tend to not advance their military capabilities too much.
If they continue espionage (granted, less effectively now agents of "wisdom" can likely be detected) I imagine they could push little things like agreements between the nations to restrict how they develop weapons (they already avoid ballistics, so things like mines, torpedoes, power levels on lasers and defenses, etc), push for leisure and civilian expenditure, fear mongering over certain technological advances, maybe sabotage of certain test/experimental/research facilities and they can push them into military and technological stagnancy or even decline.
The counter tactic from the nations would be to make sure they don't give them that chance and press an attack to cripple or contain the collective, maybe even free them from "Wisdom" or use some of "Wisdom's" restrictions against it in creative ways.
