Please submit your round name suggestions for Round 39 to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be short listed and voted on, and the winning entry will get a credit and their name will be used throughout Round 39.
Signups will open by 8th October, and ticks will start on Friday, 15th October at 20:00 GMT. The galaxy shuffle will occur at 07:00 GMT on Saturday, where everyone moved from the initial galaxies and placed in their buddy packs.
The buddy pack sizes will remain at 3.
The alliance sizes will remain at 80, and the top 50 alliance players will count towards the alliance score.
The stats will change, and will be based on stats from a previous round.
Beta testing will start this weekend.
Just to note that the speedgame, based on Round 37 code and stats, is located here. It's running with ticks every 30 seconds and will run throughout this period. The game resets every 2 days, so feel free to sign up and play for a day or two with friends! Accounts have been left over from the summer, so you might just be able to login and start playing.
