New Format for Team Galaxies! Soon to Open in a Galaxy Near You!Posted on 22.07.2010
The players of CS have taken it upon themselves to arrange a new form of team galaxy, aiming to have even longer and more exiting Team Galaxies than before. The 'Multy Team' galaxy is a highly corroborative effort among the most dedicated and experienced players of CS, using the forum to agree on additional rules and conditions.
These new rules will not be supported by the game itself, and as such it is important that the galaxy have mature and dedicated players, who understand and follow these rules. Most notable among the new rules, are the distribution of the 16 players of the galaxy into 4 teams. The theory is that four small teams of dedicated players will present new and unique challenges both in terms of strategy and diplomacy.
If you think you can handle the responsibility as a member of a small team, and judge yourself willful enough not to break our gentleman's agreements, then you're the kind of guy we wanna play with. Please visit the thread on the forum, where you'll find a sign-up list as well: Multiple Teams TG
Remember, the galaxy will start with just 16 players and half the seats are already taken!
"Free Research Galaxy" about to launchPosted on 12.07.2010
The principle of Everlasting Advancement had been born in a single moment of supreme clarity. One instant there had been silence in the dark, the next: a huge blast of information, on every frequency and on every channel... A data rush that spanned the very galaxy itself! "Follow me towards everlasting progress it said... Follow me towards a future that shall be shared by all the worlds in the sky!"
'They' also heard it: That is, our enemies and our allies - everyone in this galaxy of 'Free Research' did... And like us, they applied the principle...
Fleets were born instantaneously! Each day the principle would spin out more and more ships, each larger, faster and deadlier than the last! Massive superstructures were built overnight; all the worlds in the sky were lit up with the spark of civilization in a mere blink of the galaxy's eye.
It had all been so fast... We had all gone too far and too quickly.
So the 'PAUSE' was perhaps inevitable. The 'pause' was followed by the 'Questioning'.... Who would pilot these new gate ships? Who would work in the auto factories of our distant colonies? Who would man our fleets? But most importantly of all -- Who would lead us and our allies to victory in the struggle for Cosmic Supremacy
Free Research Galaxy will start on Friday July 16th at 19:00 CET. Enter now - if you dare!Read more...
Upcoming Team-Galaxy set to start its ticksPosted on 12.06.2010
The day had come, citizens of Galaxy "Ida" celebrated in the streets of hundreds of worlds that had come together to form a joint governing body. When Disaster Struck!
Exploratory vessels, on the edge of known space, detected signs of a massive empire of planets the size of which rivaled our own!
Leaders of Ida met. Then a second shocker! An exploratory vessel much like our own was discovered on the edge of our territory. The vote of the council was unanimous and War was declared!
Ships have been dispatched, our outer colonies reinforced, experienced generals have been assigned, but we need proven leaders to take command of our forces. Field Commanders who will work together as a Team to save the Ida Galaxy from the unknown Menace!
Ida Team Galaxy will start on Friday June 18th at 20:00 CET. Join now!
Sensation: Unknown Galaxy discovered by ScientistsPosted on 31.05.2010
Deep-scans reveal the existence of a yet 'Unknown Galaxy', as the monthly science report published today shows. The results of a deep-scan of a less populated corner of the universe have shown that this galaxy consists of approximately 50 solar systems, containing from 4 to 6 planets each. Most systems appear to have planet sizes ranging from 150 to 290 units each. A solar system with at least 3 planets with 300 space or more has been chosen for initial colonization.
Intelligence has also confirmed that a number of other Imperial Leaders appear to have made the same discovery, and are preparing a colonization mission to that same destination. Transports are scheduled to launch on Friday, June 4th at 1:00 CET, so sign up now and prepare for a tough battle in yet another quest for Cosmic Supremacy.
Galaxy features include: 2-hour tick times, 5 x 2 x 5 player space, and an average of 2.5 systems per player.
Team Galaxy and Molasses Galaxy open for sign upPosted on 18.04.2010
Holiste's Springtime Team Galaxy is open for sign up and scheduled to start its ticks on Friday, April 23rd at 19:00 CET.
For this team-galaxy the two team-leaders Holiste and raf7 agreed to analyze if the teams are properly balanced, and restart the galaxy with freshly balanced teams, should that not be the case. Also there are clear conditions defined for ending the galaxy. Read more about it here...
This galaxy offers slightly slower tick times of 90 minutes, to allow concentrating on strategy and coordination among the teams. The first 50 turns run at the usual 1 hour ticks though. Tech-cost is slightly higher than usual as well, to allow for skirmishes to happen before the destroyers arrive. Read more details about this galaxy's settings...
Also available for sign up right now: Alarik's Molasses Galaxy, which is scheduled to start its ticks on Friday, April 23rd at 23:00 CET.
Another long-lasting custom galaxy open for sign-upPosted on 27.03.2010
Branko's Pandora B1 Galaxy is open for sign up! It starts its ticks on Friday, April 9th at 16:00 CET.
Have you ever wished to play a galaxy with wide open spaces, lots of planets and plenty of resources for everyone? Pandora B1 offers just that with an average 5 systems per player, with each system holding up to 8 planets rich with resources that just wait to be colonized by your mighty empire!
But here's the catch: you have to stay alive and defend your belongings until turn 1500 - so plan ahead! To help you with that, Hyper-Space Energy plays a special role in this galaxy to help you defend your planets, so expect to meet some full-fledged defensive fortresses, that demand a lot of skill and firepower to be cracked.
This premium galaxy offers up to 10 free premium seats: this is your chance to test-drive premium membership for free! Read more...
All Ranks Team Galaxy coming upPosted on 12.03.2010
Arcady's Team Galaxy is open for sign up! It starts its ticks on Friday, March 19th at 20:00 CET.
If you've been looking for a chance to meet some friendly players and hone your team-work skills, this galaxy is for you! Designed from the beginning to give new players a chance to experience just how much fun a team galaxy can be, you're fully encouraged to join and play regardless of your skill level. We've got some great players in the mix already, and we're ready to get some more!
This galaxy sports rather large home-systems, perfect for establishing a strong base. The many extra planets and expensive colony cost will be sure to give every player room to expand. Tick-times are standard, by the hour, which should give ample time for sleep between battles
"Hard Choices" Galaxy follows "Chilastra" GalaxyPosted on 17.02.2010
Erik the Adequate's "Hard Choices" Galaxy is open for sign up! It starts its ticks on Friday, March 5th at 18:00 CET.
This 1 hour galaxy is meant as a follow up to the "Chilastra Galaxy", and offers faster start ticks for the first 72 turns, which run at 30 min ticks - so it is designed to make you think from the start. A relatively unjuicy homeworld and system with a higher home planet population than usual and only one colony ship means hard choices to make right from the start.
This Premium Galaxy offers a limited number of Free Premium Seats, so grab them while they are hot!
