World Cup Fever!

World Cup Fever has hit Planetarion in a three-pronged attack!

1) World Cup Fantasy League
As per this thread on the forums, there is a Planetarion World Cup Fantasy League. There will be one credit given to the top team at the end of the World Cup!

2) World Cup Prediction League
As per this thread on the forums, there is also a Planetarion World Cup Prediction League. This will involve guessing the results of every World Cup match, with points gained for the correct winner and the correct score. Again, the player at the top of the league at the end of the World Cup will receive a credit!

3) World Cup Speed Games

We will be running 3 World Cup Speedgames.

These will consist of:
-8 man galaxies
-2 minute ticks
-Specialised stats, to be announced before sign ups.
-Special roids will be present in the form of "Golden Balls" and will have twice the normal chance of being captured (so a 25% steal of asteroids on a planet would give you a 50% chance of stealing a "Golden Ball")
-No bash limit
-All exiling to be disabled
-Ranking of galaxies will be done on "Golden Ball Power", which will consist of a combination of Golden Balls held by the galaxy and the score of those planets.
-Free with adverts

These will be held as follows:
