Milky Way is back! It returns fresh with some new galaxy settings (delayed science funding) and some returning functionality (35% attack rule).
We’re also putting a hold on further custom games for the time being to allow MW to get more focus, so expect to see a few more familiar faces on the battlefield.

@I_like_pie the galaxy is full ! please open more slots
As i made a post about an account retrival ,I just came back in time for a new round to see how the game is developed. But this no newbie thing in MW won’t let join.
I see there is only 1 darft spot per fam ,so it seems hard to make your desired team.Anyway I will throw out there that if anyone has the sport not taken ,i m willing to be drafted and play actively this round.
My empire name was Halisho and was 2nd attacker in Smaug/Walking_deadth family and Colorado for around 10 rounds in 2008/2009.
If the acc issue can be fixied i ll appreciate it,my memory might be bit rusty but im sure i ll pick things up quickly ,so the newbie rule should not apply.
There are records of the owner has going back further than that.
Give him a little time, and make sure you have all your info - he is a pretty fair dood.
MW is back…but question. With MW being the focus and player galaxy being delayed for now where does that leave Clan Wars? It has proven to be a popular galaxy by challenging the standard rules that was put in place in support of a totalitarianism galaxy creator… @I_like_pie
I’m still figuring out details, but for now #clan-wars isn’t going anywhere so long as @HydroP is still interested in running it.
Good stuff! Happy to hear.
Evolution available or not?
Yep, evos are always at 1 unless otherwise specified.
Sooo that isn’t going to happen?
Looks like 'its closed. o.O
New guy just joined chat… said “I’m new what should I do”
Do I really have to tell him yah… sure join the test gal… something fresh will open up in about a month?
Well, new peeps can’t join MW anyway even if there were open spots.
But yeah, standard now is to open new spots until 24 hrs before BoR, that way we can cap it with all fams the same size.
As for new peeps, now’s rough timing but newbie-friendly gal will be opening up shortly. In the meantime they can join #infinitum and test gal to feel the game out.
Would you like some older players to kinda chapparone it?
I would be happy to help.
Infinitum is currently full. Please join a different galaxy or check back later for newly opened spots.
Test gal is definitely better than nothing available at all.
