Galleon’s graveyard? Where?

This is not necessarily a complaint, but has the AI ever attacked the Galleon’s Graveyard in anyone’s Noctilus Campaigns? I realise that it has strong attrition and a good garrison but even a vastly superior enemy faction will treat it like the Red Pox.

    One time I got attacked by a HE army from Lothern but that’s basically it.

    The only ones really attacking the graveyard are the 3 Shanty Pirates but you can defeat them so easy with your garrison that they are not worth to mention.

    As player
    Yes Tyrion can attack in some cases. Usually mid-late game. But usually im to strong for him to conquer it at that point.

    As AI
    Yes High Elves Tyrion tends to grab it in more or less all vanilla games I play for months and months back. It usually happens mid-late game.

    Yes, I saw invasion fleets headig there in my Noctilus campaign. But since you see them far in advance you have all the time in the world to send a treasure hunting fleet back to defend it and then deal with the attritioned enemies.
    I I remember right the "best" attack were three stacks from Tyrion and after I squashed them three stacks from Khemri came into sight.

    AI Noctilus vs rgeular AI, seems to lose his island rather fast. But if you play Noctilus yourself, it is basically a invincible fortress.

    I watched an AI only time lapse that resulted in the WE making their last stand in the Galleon's Graveyard before Kislev conquered it.

    Rarely.

    You see AI prioritizes enemies and settlements that are close by and/or vulnerable. Unless they have naval aggressor trait they usually aren't gonna go on merry naval expeditions and will instead focus on territory and enemies that are around them.

    A heavily fortified settlement in the middle of the ocean, far away from that AI faction isn't something that will take priority until the AI takes care of everything that can threaten it close by. I mean, I personally wouldn't want to go after it until I have at least established myself and brought my neighbors to heel. After that I usually snipe it as Harkon while Noctilus is away getting killed in Ulthuan.
