Signups for the second speedgame are now open at http://game.planetarion.com/signup.pl
The Speedgame will be (almost) nonstop from 12:00 GMT (12:00pm) on Saturday January 14th until 12:00 GMT (12:00pm) on Sunday January 15th, with a tick speed of 1 minute. Ticks are going to be stopped on time this time!
The speedgame will be a Capture the Flag speedgame, and buddypack sizes will be up to a maximum of 10 (although any number over 2 will work ok). There will be a slight delay of 3-5 minutes at tick 36 as we shuffle, and at tick 72 we'll distribute the asteroids to the galaxies. From then on, it'll be galaxy against galaxy - the galaxy with the highest number of "flagged" asteroids wins, with bonus points given for keeping / regaining your own flagged asteroid.
For those who missed the Creators Hour, a log is available on the forums at http://pirate.planetarion.com/showt...ad.php?t=189229
