While waiting for Round 29

We have several events planned events after Havoc (which ends at 20:00 GMT tonight). Due to the longer than usual delay between this round and next round, we're scheduling several speedgames and a longer than usual beta stage, which will include the testing of upgrading.

Beta Testing
Beta testing signups will open on Saturday 11th at 9:00 GMT, with ticks starting in the afternoon and a beta version of new stats available at some point during the weekend.

Creators Hour
We will be running a Creators Hour at 20:00 GMT on Wednesday, 15th October in #planetarion on NetGamers (irc.NetGamers.org). Please /msg CH_BOT your question.
