had a large number of (a) baby seals and (b) CNFO on the green planets, so gave up, went to Kit, and had much more success.
It's still do-able, it's not all dead chickens falling from the sky.
Yeah, it's not the end but is getting close. It took me +3 hours to get enough alloy for the Turret upgrade attacking with my Imperial HQ 11. I kept 61 HD Crates during the week to help. I tested 3 planets: Takodana, Dandoran and Tatooine.
So as not to ruin my UC on Tatooine with probable losses, I went to Takodana more as a test: lots of CNFOs, and baby seals, but I couldn't get bases with more than 300k alloy and CNFO pissed me off, I moved to Dandoran - theoretically the planet more populous.
After a bad start on Dando, with many CNFOs, baby seals, and impossible bases under 200k resources, the CNFO started to reduce, and better rivals with good loot started appearing. My last two attacks on Dando were +600k alloys each, which completed 6.5 and there are still 20 HD Crates left in my HQ which I will open during the week if I need resources. Total 16 attacks, 4 defeats. Attacking every 10-12 minutes, picking up units from HQ and using the same SC request for 3 + 3 extra jumps.
I moved to Tatooine, scouted some bases and did one more attack and got 2 stars. Tatooine is still the best served planet, without CNFO and with rich Rebel bases. If I was not trying get UC on Tatoo with defenses, I would have made all attacks on there. I would have gotten more resources in less time.
Yavin and Tako are a nightmare for any Imperial now. My tip is, if Imperial, go to Tatooine. I don't know about ErKit and Hoth, but Dandoran can be an option if you want to use ATACT in suicide attacks for loot and have enough patience with CNFO and baby seals.
