Ic currently runs 2 competitions galaxy and 1 forever galaxy.
MW is fam based and requires a of activity and anyone who doesnt join the team play running a fam bank strat is considered a liability and thus very new player unfriendly. there have been many cases that a new player is killed off as they are unable to play to that standard.
Supernova is a solo ss galaxy where fams are of single empire. For veterans at the game it is a good galaxy to play if they dont have the activity for MW but can hold their own while playing at their own pace. However it is still not friendly to a new player as they will easily be farmed and there are a lack of guidance on most of the more advanced game mechanics.
My suggestion is to change Supernova to a fam based ss galaxy. what it means is all aiding and market is disabled but a fam could consist of 4-6 players. The difference this makes is that the ss players in the same fam could work towards a common goal, defend the same core, fight wars against another fam but could also play at their own pace. due to the nature of it being ss based fams the strength disparity will be much less as it would take away con science jumps which the most actives fams can pull off. This will also be good for new players as they could join and be taught by veterans and not be shoved into a boring fam bank based role. They would also be able to explore and build in a safe core the fam carved out so player retention could be much higher.
Single player fams ss galaxy can still be ran at intervals for those who do enjoy that experience.
