UPDATE ON BATTLE TOURNAMENT:
TOURNAMENT LAUNCH DATE: 12 AM GMT 10/15/12 (SERVER TIME)
CONTEST RULES AND REGULATIONS
SPY LIMITATION: MAX 300 PER PLAYER
This will be on the US1 Server.
I never said that there was only a single body with the name contest.
The contest parameters says you can only attack bodies with the name "Contest" in the name of the body.
The rest you will have to figure out :) :) :) But I think your question gives a hint as to one of the things I was not referencing on purpose.
Good luck to all in the contest.. we are now T-Minus 2 hours and 50 Minutes until Tourny time..
United Federation * Admin Team * The Lacuna Expanse
Well here is an update on the Battle Tournament.
It looks like ships will not be used at all in the tournament. So far I have received a few thousand ships incoming.. but none of them are attack ships.. looks like this entire tournament will not be a battle tournament afterall.
Its going to be a spy tournament. Thats the only thing people seem to be sending.
So whoever has th ebest spies will win, no ships needed.
Good luck to the one with the best spies :)
Bit of an update:
Tourney Planets were placed under a new AI empire named "The Dominion"
Quite a few ships impacted today knocking the SAWs down a bit.
UF may be unavailable for a few days, I'll try to monitor in the mean time.
I'm sorry to say, the server seems to be incapable of dealing with a planet having that many incoming ships. Locks up the planet being attacked and causes a bit of lag for everyone concerned. (People not involved in the attacks are not as affected, but there does seem to be a slow down when the ships arrive)
Until we figure out how to resolve this, we are going to have to put the tournament on hold.
