Round 52 Havoc
This is to confirm that Round 52 havoc will end at 20:00 GMT today (Thursday, 1st August). The server will go down before midnight in preparation for Round 53.
Round 53 - The Phoenician Gambit
Round 53 - The Phoenician Gambit signups will open tomorrow, (Friday, 2nd August) at 20:00 GMT.
Whilst it is anticipated that Round 53 will be a paid round, due to the uncertainty regarding the game both the use of current credits and the purchase of new credits will be disabled until further notice.
A summary of key changes is as follows:
-Maximum buddy packs are changed to 5 (from 4), with 1 late joiner from tick 336.
-Alliance limits will remain unchanged (60 total, 50 counting towards alliance ranking)
-Intelligence and relations data have been added to the alliance defence page
-Government changes are being made; this involves the ability to change governments and the ability to disrupt other planets' governments through covert operations.
-No resources will be gained in c200 after a total of 120 ticks have been spent there (potentially over more than one "stay")
-On the alliance defence page, for incoming attackers, attack/defence fleet counts have been added to note how many times that planet has attacked or defended someone in the alliance. These counts are also noted on the intelligence page.
-It is now possible to import basic intelligence in the form of co-ordinates.
Negotiations to ensure the continuation of Planetarion are continuing, but until formal agreements are reached we cannot guarantee the current planned tick start time of 20:00 GMT on Friday, 9th August.
However, any updates on the future of Planetarion will be communicated as soon as possible.
Best of luck in the final ticks of Havoc!
