Winter Round 2013

Signups for the Winter Round are now open here, or, if you've played since Round 41, login directly here

-Stats are final
-Race bonuses are final
-Governments are final

The game is a Christmas-themed Round 54, with the following changes:
-15 minute ticks
-6 man buddy packs - it's recommended you get in a good buddy pack rather than risking random.
-In-gal ETA is now 4
-Cluster defence bonus of -2 ticks
-Galaxy-only alliances created at tick 12
-"Capture the Flag" ranking; every galaxy will get a special asteroid (a "present") at tick 12 to guard and gain them points, based on the score of the player holding it. You gain bonus points for keeping your own present. When landing on someone, only have up to a 25% chance of capturing any present on that planet.
-The ship-stealing covert op now steals at a flat rate of 150 ship value per agent.

Ticks start at 20:00 GMT on Friday, 27th December.
