Congratulations to Empire of the Old Earth led by Saktoth and his Imperial Vanguard Legion for surprisingly winning season 8 using cunning diplomacy and efficient warfare.

For more information check hall of fame: http://zero-k.info/Forum/Thread/314

We are also releasing new version of Zero-K and lobby:

Changes:

  • storages now reserve the metal stored. To use it you need to set construction to high priority. Morphing or weapon reload (nuke) automatically taps from reserve.

  • clan icons and avatars are visible in lobby and ingame. New playerlist shows rank icons and clan icons too (only works 100% for people who use Zero-K lobby).

  • ingame GUI streamlined - playerlist, console with chat history and epic menu can be all displayed/hidden by pressing escape. Console appears when you start typing text. Important ally and enemy chat messages appear in bubbles.

  • text to speach is silent for spectators

  • various lobby tweaks in tooltips and player lists. Its possible to filter people by clan shortcut. Settings of lobby now contain frequently used engine settings like windowed mode or hw cursor.

  • various minor planetwars tweaks - ships that cannot reach planet (broken wormholes) return home. Also ships orbiting allied planets return home.

I may as well repeat myself here too...

"storages now reserve the metal stored. To use it you need to set construction to high priority. Morphing or weapon reload (nuke) automatically taps from reserve."
I am going to have to fix this when I get enough time. Linking a UI feature to a unit is not good.

"ingame GUI streamlined - playerlist, console with chat history and epic menu can be all displayed/hidden by pressing escape. Console appears when you start typing text. Important ally and enemy chat messages appear in bubbles."
What? Is it possible to display chat all the time without showing epic menu?

IVL! it was a fun battling with you in the upper right! there WAS a point, when pirates successfully fought all planets till we were standing right before your homeplanet ;-), will remember that! unfortunately (skasi would say ZOMG!) almost any other clan was diplomatic at war with us/allied with your fraction (WhyTF was that? -.-), so winning for us had not the same effect in taking planets as it had for you. after saktoth decided finally to go after us, it was the incredible 0k-skill, activeness and diplomatic warfare (i believe you told them we have WMDs!) of him and his fellows which brought us back to the ground!

congrats to saktoth and his clan/fraction!

Yeah, your refusal to strike deals was ultimately your undoing, by the end of it, even Licho was invading my planets and still losing IP because i had such strong alliances. Though a part of it was that we didnt share online times very much: You had to fight burp to take our worlds, and we mostly took your worlds by fighting DrK.

Is there a way to make chat stop disappearing whenever I escape out of build prompts or whatever? It's annoying because I have to hit it three times every time I use it just to see everything.

Licho thinks it is a good idea for new players to be unable to see what their allies are saying by default. Of course it is technically 'enabled' by default but then they've got to play with menu on.

For the rest of us go through the menu:
Picture of a spanner which is Red -> Interface -> Chat -> Console -> Scroll all the way down -> Hide when pushed Esc

on the plus side this prevents spec cheating in some cases because specs will be literally unable to communicate with people who need help

Ye shazzeh great solution to that just remove all chat for noobs so they cant see what spec and teammates say to him. They often didnt listened before but now dont even bother telling a nub to make mexes they cant read it anyway right?

Great stuff for balance in this update especially considering elo doesnt work for rank 1 players.
