Ice cream anyone? Wink

Plain Vanilla
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.

Sign Up
The sign up is free and direct to the galaxy, though it might be cool to say hi here in this thread, 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.

Formation of Teams
In terms of how the Teams are formed, we have two options:
1 » Two players of similar level of experience set their preferences, and players are distributed at reshuffle considering the two lists.
2 » The distribution of players happens automatically according to conventional Fame points

So, those interested in assuming the task of picking players, please post here, and if we can match two people with similar TG knowledge we ask Erwin to set them as Team selectors. Otherwise, we simply let it roll, and let the algorithm do it.

Note: Assuming the task of selecting Teams means nothing by itself in terms of Team leadership. We encourage any form of Team internal organization to be discussed inside its private Forum.

Galaxy Settings
The settings are quite conventional, with some small adjustments:
» Average planets (HW and juicies above average)
» Cheap colony module and 10 colony ships to speed up the start
» 6x3x4 galxy shape, creating 3 lines of distance to enemy territory
» 3 hour turns since the beginning, because it is a fully open game and the frontline is potentially hot (sector size = 200)
___

Anyone feels inspired into a blurb?

The sign up begins now, and I am challenging the first player to get inside the first ever Free TG to post his achievement here! Big Grin

I actually thought the picture and first two paragraphs were the front page blurbs themselves :p don't see why they shouldn't be heh. I'll post that up? Probably minimal editing too on my part (keep it simple golden rule heh)

But there is one point I didn't understand though. Which part of the fame system is brand new? The 50/25 for winner and loser system? Or you mean the victory points etc stuff you mentioned in the other thread (honestly I hadn't read that post clearly to have noticed it :p)

Hi guys, long time no see!

After a 6 month+ absence due to university assignments and exams, I'm finally coming to the end of my final year. Last exam on the 19th (woop woop) so looking to join this Galaxy. Before I join, any changes to the game over the 6 months I should know about? Looking forward to playing again, without the distractions! Smile

Heya. Long time indeed. Think most things are the same.. Turrets take less space now though compared to 6 months ago.. Due to an experiment gone wrong :p but think the community have come to accept the new turret stats. And we had a short facebook ad campaign last month and had more players register.. But So far no new faces in the forums I think..

Besides that I'm now more godlike in the CS universe lol.. I have the power to start, end and even pause galaxies hehe.. Even from my mobile hehe..

Speaking of which.. This isn't really something new.. But someone suggested using this app called Teamviewer to play the game off your mobile phone.. So for me that's a change in the way I access the game..

We're also launching a galaxy that requires players to check in only once a day.. But won't take years to finish.. Check out the walnut galaxy for that..

also we're getting a few other dinosaur players.. I mean Erm.. Beta tester players to check the game again.. So the field of competition in galaxies seems a bit higher compared to a bit a while ago.. (and I'm starting to show how bad a player I really am against better opposition :p )

That's about it that I can remember.. The substance of the game is still relatively unchanged.. So you'd probably fit right in

Well, it looks like you have been inspired into a blurb in the simplest of ways... Smile Reading the 2 paragraphs under that light, they do seem to be easily adjustable for the purpose.

About the fame, I mean the system described in the other thread. On any case, here is the link again:
» Link to the new TG Hall of Fame system

And thank you for your posts, guys! Smile

The galaxy seems to be filling up pretty nicely, and I am sure glad to see it.

Teams I believe will be auto-formed by fame and the forums should be open 72 hours before galaxy starts.

Glad we already have 12 players. Would love to see more. I miss the days of 10 to 15 players per team.

I just updated the front page to remind people that teams are formed on 21st May

What I understand is that we should have at least 1 beta player in there.. I think.. I haven't even signed up myself :p that'd make it odd numbers though

Welcome, Bard_Beoulve and Irandael... Smile

Seems like the purpose of this galaxy is being nicely matched, with a good mix between players with different levels of experience. Good to see!

The Teams are automatically formed tomorrow at 20:00 CET, with the final positions being assigned and the private Team Forums being created at that same time (all players, be present at your Forum!). Also, keep in mind that since this galaxy is focused on participation, new players are allowed to join while there is space available, even after the initial Teams are formed.

I am going to join too now, in celebration mood. So, no excuse now tingling! Big Grin
