Winter Round 2013
-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.
Finally, we have another Creators Hour in #planetarion on the NetGamers IRC network at 21:00 GMT on Monday, 23rd December.
To ask questions send them to CH_Bot using the following syntax: /msg CH_Bot your question
You can ask multiple questions before or during the event. We hope to answer as many as we can, and we'll put up a log of the questions and answers in our Creators Hour section of the portal after the event.
Best wishes to everyone for the holiday season!
