any advice on what to do about someone who hides on a creen and waits for you before they take the egg?
I got a real problem with someone doing it to me.
Avoid the screen? Maybe they just want that one screen to themselves. Eventually, they'll get tired and leave or they'll move.
It's not just the one screen though
Is it Barton you're hunting in? If it is, there are only so many screens and movement patterns you can make. Use your head, if they go clockwise, go counterclockwise. If they're stalking you throw down a fleet every so often and zoom away.
