We've revamped PlanetWars for season 10. Most notably, there are now only two factions: The Empire Reborn and the Synthetic Front. This is intended to correct several long-standing issues with previous rounds.

Other changes are as follows:

Homeworlds
  • Only top 20 clans from the previous round may have homeworlds. They can pick a homeworld with 501 IP for free at any time.
  • Only homeworlds may be renamed.
  • Removed consolidation

Victory conditions
  • Economic victory: Value needed increased to 80%
  • Removed tech victory


Zero-K v0.8.13.4 has also been out for a day or so, be sure to update. Changes include:

Gameplay (general)
  • Fixed some bomber behaviour issues.
  • Fixed Scorpion not being radar invisible when cloaked.
  • Dominatrix has more speed; turret turns faster.
  • Scout boat cheaper.

Modules
  • Assault Cannon and Missile Launcher do more damage and have more range.
  • Gauss Rifle reloads faster.
  • Slasher unpacks 20% faster.
  • Slow Beam and High Power Servos a bit cheaper.

GUI
  • Player list should work properly now (minimum width, aligns to bottom properly).

Visuals
  • A VR grid is drawn around the map.
  • "Night" effect: Start at dawn instead of midnight (configurable).

The gauss weapon and Slasher changes seem to be against the design goal of "buffing strengths and nerfing weaknesses).

By the way, the Slasher change should probably be listed under 'Gambeplay (general)'.

What's the "only top 20s may have gomeworlds" thing? Does that mean both factions will have an uneven number of homeworlds?

So let me get this straight.... 99% of us who have intertubes have at least a 50MB/s downlink and are able to watch the most extravagant of things of the internet through pixel precise 1080p, but-- zero-k uses a j--*gasp*peg and not only that, it's packed so much the artifacts are everywhere and oh hey it's also 800x600. Gents, Ladies, WHATHEFUCK?!
