Round 61 Beta
Approximately the same time that havoc starts (possibly Sunday 1st March), we will be starting to trial multi-tick combat in beta, to allow players and alliances to get used to it and to tweak what we've barely seen in many rounds now. Players are welcome - #beta on NetGamers is the place to be!
We will also be looking to re-introduce the free speedgame server with a set of older stats, basic bot planets (that just build ships) and single tick combat in the near future.
