Status Update

This is a general update on the game.

Firstly, changes for Round 17 since the last update.

The xp formula for capturing asteroids has changed to something slightly more simple.
It will now be:
XP = roids * bravery factor
bravery factor = 5*min(2,target_score/planet_score)*min(2,target_value/planet_value)

The upgrade bonus is still 5000+500*tick of each resource, but only after tick 72 (until then it will be 5000 of each resource).

Also, there have been some minor changes to the stats.

The Tarantula has been given +10 damage, and the "Seraph" has been changed to the "Illusion".
Also, the Harpy has been changed to init 5 (from 7), and the Mandrake has been given +1 damage and +2 armour.

Many of you will have noticed a few server issues. The speedgame didn't go ahead as planned, and we had some database issues with the main server that meant for a lot of this morning it was impossible to login. We should still be having the Round 17 preview at The Gathering, and we hope to find the source of these problems and solve them as soon as possible. We apologies for the problems caused and will try and arrange other speedgames as soon as possible.
