Milky Way 69: The Price of Freedom

Freedom, or Chaos?

The recent removal of alliance restrictions has bestowed a new freedom upon Milky Way’s inhabitants. Friendships have been tested, loyalties have been secured, and shocking betrayals have gripped the galaxy.

Not since The Betas have so many empires had so much control over their fate.

Yet, where some see freedom and control, others see chaos and hostility.

What do you see?


Milky Way 69 continues where Milky Way 68 left off. New life flows through the galaxy as its empires continue to adjust to their newfound freedom. The events of Milky Way 69 will seed Milky Way 70.

15 teams will compete for 6 weeks in a test of skill but perhaps even more importantly, diplomacy. Families are accepting new recruits.

Find your family.

Milky Way 69 starts on Saturday, April 6, 2019 @ 17:00 GMT.

Where will you land?

We’ve opened the 3rd draft spot early. Those final draftees can get in if there is space in the family.

Alrighty everybody, I was without comp access most of yesterday and several people had requests and questions in chat.

I’ve responded to what I could, but it’s possible that I missed some.

If you need something, please message me in the forums here if possible. Chat is not official support and I am very liable to lose your request amongst all the noise.

Obviously, if you can’t use the forums for some reason, then of course message me however you can. Sending an email to [email protected] also works.
