New Galaxy: TeamSSv1.0

Synergestic Play

IC has a new style of play! Self Sufficient, but synchronise with your Family’s goals and aspirations, or fall together.

For this, we introduce a new galaxy, “TeamSSv1.0”, thanks to @Parrot and @Jets. More background details can be read here:

TeamSSv1.0

There shall be 8 families for which we had a registration period and full drafts possible.

Fight it out, to see who can form the best synergy and be the best collection of Self-Sufficient empires. You are tasked with running your own empires and being wholly responsible.

Key Changes

  • Play completely Self-Sufficient, but in your Family
  • No Aiding
  • No Market

Registration is (Almost) Open

All nominated drafts are almost in. And the Galaxy will soon be open for Randoms to join. Stay tuned to this thread for when it will be.

Players will be able to join by clicking here.

If you don’t yet have an account, you can create one here first.

If you’ve hit the galaxy limit, a donation of any amount will enable you to play in as many galaxies as you’d like.

this is truly amazing! but i dont know if i should feel annoyed or ecstatic :stuck_out_tongue: we have been trying to get quezian back for ages, but was told the whole race revision thing had to be implemented first to make it happen due to short cuts make more work in the end. WHAT happend? how and why now? :stuck_out_tongue: @I_like_pie @Torqez @Parrot @Jets

I can’t say really The idea happened. Pie put in a lot of hard work and made it happen. Not really sure if this is a one off or something that can happen again. This is very much a test galaxy to see how this works. the race is there ,but could of been done with any race really. that was a small part ,but i think adds a little something.

Pie gets a large portion of the credit for this one.

Always ecstatic! :slight_smile:

Spot added to the gal. Family size is now 6! 6th spot is for randoms

It piggy-backed off of the other New Galaxy Settings. It wasn’t quite the quick change you asked for, as it’s technically support for any single race, but it’s also not Race Versions. It’s somewhere in the middle.

I did anticipate you speaking up about it. :stuck_out_tongue: Nothing personal, it just became more viable this time around as this new galaxy was planned and pushed for. :slight_smile:

Okay, 1 more spot had been added!

Fam size is now 7.

Likely that will be it. There are currently 5 spots left. If you’re considering joining, please do and test this out with us :slight_smile:

Round starts in just under 2 days.

Ally Situation

After some discussions, we have decided that there will be no Allies this round. This also includes Unofficial Allies (UA).

We understand the game does not enforce the above this and no way to police it either.

However this is very much a new style of play we are trialling out and want to see if it can be fun.

As such, we rely on your honesty to carry out the no-ally rule. You are playing in fams, so work with them and strategise to see what you can do to win the round.

Gl all! :slight_smile:

Do we really trust people to follow this rule?

I guess we should make an agreement, that whoever does ally, will be attacked by all other fams :slight_smile:

Well, this is different @PLaYeR1
In mw it was an unofficial agreement by players to not have allies

Like I said, unfortunately, there is no way to police it. However, this is requested by the organisers of this custom gal.

We just rely on peoples’ honesty, to see if we can make this style of play viable.

Lets not forget IC playerbase is not where it used to be, and we’re trying to restore it. Screwing people over in the game, although not against the rules, has an adverse affect on this objective.

pretty much what Torqez said, sure you can try to win using any method possible but in the end no one will respect you for it if you did it underhanded.
