After the final tick of Round 14, an End of Round Ceremony will be held at 21:00 GMT. In it, we'll announce more details about Round 15, including final galaxy formation and alliance limits.
Credit allocation will go as follows:
The #1 Planet gets a credit,
the #1 Galaxy gets 5 credits,
the #1 Alliance gets 5 credits, and
those having held the 6 different "Golden Roids" for longest get a credit each.
We're happy to announce a trial return of "Creators Hour", starting in #Planetarion on irc.netgamers.org at 21:00 GMT, Saturday 1st October.
As previously announced, on Saturday 1st October Round 14 Havoc will start, also at 21:00 GMT. Each planet will have it's XP and fleets reset, and be issued with 100 million of each resource, a full tech tree, and 10 of each type of construction. Ticks will continue every 15 minutes, with the final tick being Friday, 7th October at 21:00 GMT.
While havoc is occurring, private beta testing will be occurring on the beta server.
Following Round 14 havoc, signups will open immediately for a free speedgame, that will be run over the weekend of the 8th and 9th of October respectively on the "game.planetarion.com" server. Further details will be announced in the End of Round Ceremony. One thing we can confirm is that the speedgame will be run as part of the Jolt-run PC Zone series of tournaments - http://www.pczone.jolt.co.uk . The benefit of this is that the speedgame will carry a prize fund with items donated from MSI, Corsair, Logitech, Plantronics, Creative, WD and ASUS. Please note that we can only ship prizes to European based players.
