Just to announce that, as is customary, we're removing vacation mode this Friday (Friday 24th).
If you have a special reason for wanting to be in vacation mode AFTER Friday, please contact Marv or Appocomaster (1:1:6 or 1:1:12) to request to be placed in vacation mode, including the reason and the times you wish to be in vacation mode.
At the same time as we're removing the ability to enter vacation mode, we will remove the ability to start alliance merges. This is to stop people merging in the last few days of the round to win.
We will also be, as usual, removing the free account research limits of everything but the last 3 covert ops.
Good luck in the remainder of the round!
