Havoc
Havoc starts today at 21:00 GMT.

Most of you who have played Planetarion in previous rounds will be aware of Havoc. Typically, we run the game for a week after the final rankings have been taken from the game. With resource and asteroid boosts, this time is used by planets to launch fun attacks retaliating again persistent hostile incomings or perhaps against their HC.
However, this round things are going to be different. We are going to be playing Capture the Flag. How, I hear you ask, does CTF translate to the Planetarion Universe? Here are the details:
Each galaxy will be given a Special Roid. This will be their galaxy flag. If you're not aware what Special Roids are, then ask around; they've been a new addition for this round.
Galaxies will then battle it out to steal as many flags as they can, whilst defending any flags they have retrieved themselves.
At the end of CTF havoc, galaxies will be ranked according to the flags they have at that point in time.
Each flag is worth 1 point. However, if a galaxy holds its own flag, that flag is worth 5 points.
Now not only will this be a fun alteration to the usual Planetarion game play, to win your galaxy will have to function as a unit... Your alliance is of no use to you any more.
As incentive to win, we have prizes up for grabs. The top three scoring planets in the winning galaxy will each receive a free Planetarion credit for use in any main game round.
You can keep track of the Flag Asteroids on the Universe Misc page and a galaxy ranking for CTF will appear on the same page soon.
This is the first time anything like this has been attempted, so we're more than happy to hear your feedback and suggestions. You can contact us on IRC (#support), via email or telepathy.
So. Good luck. Happy roiding.
Before that though, I know some people might like to attack their HC or do some big retals.
For that reason, we'll be running the first 24 hours of havoc as normal, but with a resource injection.
24 hours into havoc, we'll reset the universe. Everyone will be placed on a level playing field.
Full tech tree, lots of roids, lots of resources, no ships.
You'll have a couple of hours to re-select your race too.
We'll then place a Flag Roid into each galaxy at random.
And play the game.
There will be no shuffle and ticks will run at 15 minutes (both for the first 24 hours and for CTF)
Havoc will run for 7 days in TOTAL.
After that, we'll be setting the server up for a speedgame on the 18th/19th
