Galaxy Beta 2 starting January 16thPosted on 10.01.2006
Galaxy Beta 2 will start the ticker on Monday, January 16th at 18:00 CET . The balancing has been greatly improved after the experiences with the first galaxy, and a few completely new features will be added shortly after the galaxy starts.
If you want to take part, please do sign up! Also if you have signed up already, please do log into the galaxy at least once after Friday, January 13th 18:00 CET, so that we can determine the exact number of active players, and adjust the galaxy size accordingly.
Players that have not logged into the galaxy after January 13th are considered inactive and will be removed from the Galaxy. However, if that should have happened to you, you can simply re-signup to that galaxy at any time. This measurement simply allows us to determine how many people actively want to take part in the next test-round, and adjust the galaxy-size accordingly.
