How does this assimilation thing works?

For the first week it’s a regular SN round. After that however, the bottom half will be merged into the top half, with placements happening at random.

Any time fam merges happen, players will keep all their planets, fleet, etc.

This will repeat weekly, with new teams sticking together through successive merges until the final week.

  • After W1

    • 50 fams of 1 become 25 fams of 2
  • After W2

    • 25 fams of 2 become 12 fams of 4 (2 fams will have 5)
  • After W3:

    • 12 fams of 4 become 6 fams of 8 (2 fams will have 9)
  • After W4:

    • 6 fams of 8 become 1 fam of 17 and 2 fams of 16
  • After W5:

    • The bottom fam gets split in half and distributed between the final top 2
  • After W6:

    • The round is over, and we will see which of the initial 50 families comes out on top.
    • The final 2 fams will remain split for the rankings.

Seems annoying to have a ua partner that could be your enemy every other week…

Who’s to say they’re your enemy because they’re in a different family?

That’s the point of UA, after all.

Sounds like fun. :slight_smile:

Will be interesting!

SS slow start. Then pair up after one (if you’re lucky) or after 2-3 weeks, which is already halfway through the round.
Or go SS all the way because if you’re a bottom fam, your team will get shredded and you need to re-team up, and any previous team shared system now has hostiles.

So unless you can be sure to carry your smaller fams to top half, SS is the way.

Sounds fun for a returning player.

As families get assimilated, what happens to the DS’s?

From #supernova

LightgunsYesterday at 10:12 PM

the ds will stay there as part of that old fam and do nothing. Ds is fam related.

ZoZYesterday at 10:16 PM

@Lightguns do they not disappear, since the fam has to have a certain %age of the explored planets. And the fam has none anymore, since, in fact the players were redistributed?

I_like_pieYesterday at 10:16 PM

the % is to move a DS into a system. once it’s there, it will remain even if the fam no longer holds the system

it only ever gets removed if the family gets defeated within that system, and the empire migrations bypass that event

so we’ll end up with some orphan DSes

Looks like the best thing to do is a mix: go light on resource, heavier on cash.

Like, 30-70 maybe.
