Winter Round / Creators Hour

Creators Hour

There will be a Creators Hour tomorrow night at 20:00 GMT in #planetarion on irc.netgamers.org for those who wish to join.

Winter Round
The Winter Round ticks are about to start! If you have played a recent main game, you can log in directly here, otherwise, signup here.

The Winter Round is the same as Round 49 with the following changes:
-6 man buddy packs
-shuffle tick at tick 24
-in-gal ETA is now 4
-news scans now only miss the most recent 2 ticks (rather than the most recent 3 ticks)
-no alliances
-30 minute ticks
-"Capture the Flag" ranking; every galaxy will get a special asteroid at tick 24 to guard and gain them points, based on the score of the player holding it. You gain bonus points for keeping your own.
-no salvaging of ships
-cluster defence gives a 2 eta bonus
Best of luck!

Ticks start tonight at 20:00 GMT, with the shuffle tomorrow morning at 07:30 GMT.
