Are you always worried about small and tight spaces? Not comfortable being squeezed in with little room to manoeuvre? Well, they say the best way to conquer your fears is to face it.
And here's where we come to the series of Claustrophia galaxies. With 1 hour ticks, 100-sized sectors and rather juicy planets, expect to see ships and planets at every corner you turn in a fast-paced, action-packed galaxy.
The galaxy started on July 19, and is open for ranks 1 and up. Click here to view its settings.
If you are new to the game and need to gain a rank before you can join these galaxies, there's also the new player galaxies which provides you a safe platform to hone your skills first here.
Desert Warriors Galaxy IIIPosted on 03.07.2014
"So much space to walk! Oh Prophets of the Sands, may the Suns be merciful to our People." - Ancient prayer of the First Tribe
For eons, warriors of the desert have battled its burning heat and wild sandstorms. But the vastness of the cosmos offers a different challenge. Oasis planets, although rare, are precious in a desert of arid planets. Being the key to ultimate supremacy in the galaxy - they may well be worth the travel, or even the fight. How many of the new tribes will survive the dangers of such great distances? How many will endure the slow pace of time? And how many will find their rewards, hidden beneath the cosmic sand?
Take the challenge in this third round of truly desert-long path to Cosmic Supremacy. Desert warriors 1 and 2 took more than 1000 ticks of intense and challenging action to decide who deserves the title, with the game's end reaching truly apocalyptic proportions. Desert warriors 3 promises the same, except this time, the sand serpents are willing to bite even more. Some will seek revenge.
Galaxy Features: Wide sector sizes, Randomly formed superplanets amidst poor commodity planets, Moderately high tech multiplier, 0 point civ traits, 9x2x9 flat-shaped galaxy, and regular planet space maximum of 400, allowing long term development.
Sign up your Tribe, and prove yourself as the ultimate Desert Warrior! The Sandstorms start on the 9th of July.
Because of a planet count of 2-8 per system, the galaxy begins by gentlemen rules, whereby a player that gets fewer than 5 planets in his home system, MAY retire from the galaxy and re-enter again. In this case, he must send a PM to tingling by 12.01am CET, 4 July 2014. However there will only be one chance for players to do this, and players can only sign back in after being flagged to do so after July 4th

Plain Vanilla Team GalaxyPosted on 20.05.2014
The upcoming Plain Vanilla Team Galaxy is at the same time a return to the ancient ways, and a step into a new direction. We are simplifying Team formation and initial player positioning to the way it used to be, and launching a brand new system for distributing team related Fame points (check here for all the information). These points will allow us to distinguish players that excel in teamwork during the year, and also decide who can participate in Ranked TG's by identifying all those who have an active participation both in the galaxy and in the Team Forums.
The sign up is free and direct to the galaxy, though it might be cool to say hi here, and motivate good mood, visibility to this initiative, and participation of a good number of players. For those who are unfamiliar with Team Galaxies, the first position we get on the map is temporary (no point on setting any orders by then), and 72h before the game begins we are assigned to a Team, given a final random position on our half of the galaxy, and included in a Team Forum. During those 72h, all participants are to actively engage Team conversation, making collective decisions about individual roles (hold your civ traits until discussed with your team mates) and combined strategy.
The galaxy begins on Saturday, May 24.
Walnut galaxyPosted on 18.05.2014
Nuts about programming codes? Then put your governors and admirals to the test in the latest innovation in galaxy settings. Introducing the Walnut Galaxy, where ticks are processed only once a day every 5pm CET, but in batches of 10 turns a time.
Designed to level the playing field for players who can't be online all the time, participants of the galaxy will agree not to issue new orders during the time that the turns are processed (or watch ticks unfold for that matter). That means the galaxy only allows you to make changes to strategy and the set up of your empire every 10 turns, and you'll need to depend on the scripts written for your admirals and governors to run your empire for you - making reliable governors and admirals all the more important to give you an edge for cosmic supremacy.
So if you think you and your admirals are up for the challenge, sign up in the forums here.
The galaxy begins on Monday, May 19.

250th Unranked Galaxy amid 5th Birthday celebrationsPosted on 07.05.2014
It was at the beginning of the 5th year, and in conjunction with the great anniversary party for a great and wonderful game called Cosmic Supremacy that the 250th game came about. That's a quarter of a thousand!
With all the banners and flags that had been put out for the anniversary party, the 250th game was nearly lost in the limelight. It went on to be created for the beginners and newbies of this great game, Cosmic Supremacy, coinciding with the 5th anniversary party galaxy due to be launched on May 8.
So let all of the new players, Rank 0 to Rank 1, come forth and sign up for the 250th game in conjunction with the 5th anniversary since the game was launched.
Have a great one, and save me some cake.
Cosmic Supremacy on the goPosted on 25.04.2014
Tired of missing ticks while you're away from your computer? Can't check that newly scouted system because you're out soclalizing? Or having trouble giving orders to your fleets when you're stuck in traffic with no PC in sight?
Fear no more, as one of our trusty members has found a solution that can revolutionize the way you play the game - right on your mobile phone. Using remote control apps such as TeamViewer, players can now check their galaxy right on their smartphone screens, so long as you leave your PC or laptop on.
So if you've been wondering how to balance real-life commitments and ambitions for CS fame, this could just be what you've been looking for to satisfy your CS needs.
