We are now nearing the end of Round 45 - Outer Rim. The final tick, as mentioned on the Overview page, is 1177, and occurs at 20:00 GMT on Friday, 2nd March.
The End of Round Ceremony (EoRC) is scheduled for Friday, 2nd March at 21:00 GMT for an hour in #planetarion on irc.netgamers.org (accessible via the com unit). It will consist of interviews with the top players, the top galaxy and representatives of the alliance, and then finish with an alliance competition (allcomp), where users will [tag] in their nickname for their alliance, and the winning alliance will win a few credits.
After the EoRC has been completed, the game will be setup for the "havoc" period, of fast-ticked madness. This will run for at least one 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
-XP will be kept
-Asteroid mining limits increased to 8 million asteroids total
-Maximum construction limit set at 800 constructions
-Ticks set at every 15 minutes
Havoc will start at 10:00 GMT on Saturday, 3rd March.
