The original rules have been changed:
- Empires that surpass 100 planets will graduate and be removed.
Empires who have gone over the 100-planet limit will no longer have to be booted. Instead, their planets will randomly secede until their empire gets back to 100 again.
- When over 80% of available planets are explored, the empire with the most planets will graduate and be removed.
We were delayed on doing this, but it is no longer necessary. Instead, if space becomes further scarce we will simply lower the planet cap which will lead to more re-exploration opportunities.
Also, given that we’re not actively removing anybody, you can instead request deletion by messaging the game moderators.
