Round 27 will be a FREE round. All accounts will have the full benefits of a standard paid account.
Round 27 signups will open at 19:00 GMT on Friday, 30th May. Ticks will start on Friday, 6th June and last for 7 weeks.
The main features will be as last round:
- Buddy packs will be limited to 4, with 2 late signups able to join after tick 336. Buddy packs of 2 will be combined to make buddy pack groups of 4 when the shuffle occurs.
- Alliance limits will be kept at 75, with 60 members counting towards the limit as before.
- Ship stats will be based on Round 26, with some modifications.
Other changes include:
- Production system overhaul to allow partial canceling and to not penalise for adding to orders after they've been placed
- Planet scans show a basic overview of the resources in production
- Alliance name reservation system implemented
- Lots of minor functional and non functional bugfixes, including the renaming of some pages
We'll be looking to open the beta to the public on Monday, 26th of May, with signups starting around 12:00 GMT and ticks starting at 18:00 GMT.
We'd like to announce a Creators Hour on Wednesday, 28th May at 20:00 GMT in #planetarion.
