The end of the round, and expansion.

This round of Planetarion will end at 21:00 GMT on the 8th of June - this will be the last tick that happens.
We will then have an end of round ceremony at 22:00 GMT in #planetarion on irc.netgamers.org which will include words from the winning planet, galaxy and alliance.

Havoc will start on the 9th of June at 21:00 GMT. This will be slightly different from the standard havoc set up. Yes it will still be faster ticks; there will still be resources and roids bonuses, but we will also be having a capture the flag style system based around Golden Roids, more details on this will be announced at a later date.

Havoc will last for 1 week ending on the 15th June at 21:00 GMT.

Then, and this is the exciting thing, we will have a speedgame on the 18th and 19th of June. The precise format and configuration of this has yet to be decided and will be announced as soon as possible. It is hoped that 1 minute ticks will be possible, but the current ticker has not been used in a fast tick environment with large player numbers before. Thus we will have to wait and see to what is actually possible.

And now the expansion.

With Phil^, Blixxard, A2 and Spinner all leaving us we decided it was time to try to fill their shoes. Though this is next to impossible, I'm sure our new recruits will do their best for the game.
Firstly, Ph8, who has joined us to be Xontas' deputy for the mulithunter team as well as to assist Kloopy and Pishmishy with the games coding.
Then we have Lunar_Lamp who has joined as Ice-Lady's deputy in the support team.
Finally we have Appocomaster who has joined as my deputy in the development team.

While this has filled a lot of the voids we are still in need of some graphics gurus to replace blixxard. So if anyone out there thinks they could fill this void, please do contact us and show us your work. We can explain how working on Planetarion work, what would be expected of you, and what the role entails more precisely.

PATeam is not the only team to have expanded though. Xontas has recruited two new multihunters into the fold. These are Assassin and Appocomaster (who is a multihunter in addition to his PATeam duties). This expansion should enable to multihunter team to more effectively locate cheats and remove them from the game.
