End of Round 34
Round 34 Havoc will finish on Wednesday, 30th at 20:00 GMT.
Just to remind you all that the speedgame is running constantly on http://speedgame.planetarion.com
On Wednesday 30th December at 20:00 GMT, we will run a Creators Hour in #planetarion on the NetGamers chat network (irc.netgamers.org). You can access it by using http://chat.planetarion.com. This will allow you the oppertunity to ask the PA Team questions. You can ask the questions by sending them to CH_BOT.
Below are the major changes for Round 35:
- New alliance attack page
- Added new alliance scan request system
- Notifications now paid only
- Buddy pack limit now 3
- Single target ship statistics
- Allianceless planets get a reduced tax rate on the universal exchange (now up to 10% rather than up to 25%).
- 1 Selfexile every 3 ticks
- 1 Late join for gals with 3 BP members, 2 for gals with 2 BP members (exiling 1 out of a gal with 3 BP members does NOT give 2 late joins)
- Upgrade bonuses increased, base rates doubled, smaller increase of the per tick gain
For this round we are also trialling the following changes:
- A planet in an alliance can only be defended by other members of the alliance or his galaxy
- Cluster ETA bonus for defence removed.
Alliance limits will stay the same, 70 maximum with 60 counting towards the alliance score.
Beta testing for many of these changes are available at http://beta.planetarion.com, with the subsequent changes added soon.
Signup for Round 35 will open at 18:00 GMT on 1st January, with ticks starting at 20:00 GMT on 8th January.
