Round 42 and Round 43

Round 42

Round 42 - The Meaning of Everything enters its last week this Friday. As usual, vacation mode will be removed as of 20:00 GMT on Friday 22nd July.

Round 42 ends on Friday 29th July, with the final tick being at 20:00 GMT.

The End of Round Ceremony (EoRC) will be held at 21:00 GMT for an hour in #planetarion on irc.netgamers.org.uk (accessible via the com unit link ingame). It will consist of interviews with the top players, the top galaxy and representatives of the alliance. The EoRC will then finish with an alliance competition (allcomp), where users are encouraged to place a [tag] in their nickname for their alliance. The alliance with the most tagged users in the channel will be the winner of 3 credits.
After the EoRC has been completed the game will be setup for the "havoc" period of fast-ticked madness. This will run for approximately 1 week and be setup as follows:
-All researches completed
-500 million resources total (split over metal/crystal/eonium according to race)
-3000 asteroids total (split over metal/crystal/eonium according to race)
-30 of each factory, 30 wave amplifiers, 50 security centres and 30 of each refinery ADDED to each planet
-Fleets recalled
-XP will be kept
-Asteroid mining limits increased to 8 million asteroids total
-Maximum construction limit increased to 800 constructions
-Ticks set at every 15 minutes
-Alliances deleted
-Capture The Flag (CTF) mode enabled:
--CTF asteroids distributed
--CTF rankings enabled.

"Capture the Flag" is a Planetarion mode where every galaxy is on its own fighting to gain special "flag" asteroids from other galaxies. The galaxies get more points if the special asteroids are held by planets with higher scores.

Round 43

Round 43 round name submissions are now open as usual. The entries will be shortlisted, with the winning entry selected by forum poll getting a credit to be used in Round 43 or another future round. To submit your suggestion e-mail round43 [at] planetarion.com with the subject "Roundname Suggestion".

Round 43 is provisionally scheduled to have signups open on Friday 12th August at 20:00 GMT, with ticks starting on Friday 19th August at 20:00 GMT and continuing for 7 weeks.

Changes for this round will be announced shortly, but the buddy pack size will remain at 5.
