Let's try to describe the situation:

Scenario A

1 Planet with 4 areas, 2 Factions.

Faction A has one base on one area of planet 1 (Gas)

Faction B has one base on one area of planet 1.(Crystals)

Every faction has some units on it's base's area.

There are 2 more areas with gas and victory points. Who take this?

Usually if you have a base on a planet you can take every free area's card of that planet.

Now there are 2 bases. Who takes cards for those resources?

Scenario B

1 Planet, four areas, 1 faction.

Faction A has one base and few units in 1 area. The rest of the planet is free from enemy units, then during regroup phase, it takes all the card about that planet.

Faction B arrives and takes control of 1 area. and builds 1 base.

During regroup phase Faction A lose resource card just for the area where enemy built his base, right?

And Faction B takes just the resource card where it built his base, right?

Victory point

Who takes point from victory point's areas?

If I have a base and the planet is free i take those points.

If there is an enemy on that area it takes those points.

Does he needs a base to take those points or just unit are enough?

What if on a planet there are 2 bases and no unit on the victory point area?

Thank you in advance!

Best regards,

Daemon

About Victory points, I've read this:

The Regrouping Phase

5. Gain Conquest Points

During this step, each player gains a number of conquest points equal to the sum of conquest points in areas he controls.

So, if I control an Conquest point's area, I take those points.

Then I've read:

Friendly Area: An area that contains one or more of a player's own units or bases, and no enemy units or bases. Players always control areas friendly to them.

So, now it's clear:

If I build a base on a empty planet I take every resource card of that planet, but just points of the areas where i do have units or bases.

Because an empty area is not an area under my control.

Thank you!

Page 15 "TIP":

"If an enemy builds a base on a planet where you previously
gained Resource cards from empty areas, you
retain control of those resources until the enemy takes
control of those areas."

Another sweet tip is this: When building a base, always build it on a VP area.
