LOL we need RAEG again. Not to mention I need to lose a bunch of elo. Planetwars will help.

We ran Planetwars but needed to improve the design. I'd like to run it again, and have some ideas on how to improve the design. The big bottleneck at the moment is writing the code.

Maybe it is possible to do a round befor there is time for improvements. Because even with the old rules/ the old gameplay, it means fun.

With the old rules, it meant fun for the three people picked by the leader to launch the attack that turn (and if LUrankAdminAnir was on the team, he'd probably be one of them), with the rest thumb twiddling. I'm all for strategic use of your best people for the key missions, but if there is only one mission, then there's no secondary objectives for lower tier players to cut their teeth on.

Perhaps balkanising the game would offer a short term fix- if you have loads of factions, then it doesn't matter so much that only 2 or 3 people per faction are fighting in a particular turn. With lots of little factions slugging it out, you might also have a longer contest (didn't the last round last about one afternoon?) with a lot more politics as different groups ally up and backstab each other in pursuit of final victory.

Of course, if the factions are too fragmentary, they may not have people around at all times for the campaign and so lose their entire territory when they've gone to bed or out for drinks which isn't much fun.

Hmm every clan being their own faction could be fun. Kinda like dust 514.

guys what does planet wars need first it needs to change the thing that one map represents one planet. we need soemthing more strategy becuase the one thing in planets wars that doesn't make sense is the space battle. how did the forces land the models of zero-k it make no sense pls how did they land, fire fight, and invasion all of it. frankly to make planet wars we have to explore on planets learn from one of my all time favorites emperor battle for dune- the harkonnen map



even if it show's the file broken click this and it will take u pasteboard.com thee only place i could upload it.

see the map red parts are that's what we should do it makes sense, planetwars doesn't work one planet at the time. mix the maps give 4 or 5 maps per planet and put 3 factions or 4 or 5 factions fighting for it and put it like uwant the order of maps. it's make conquering a planet worth the time and u have to think time table for all players to join too.

frankly guys if u evolve this game and somehow come up with an engine where u can use ships like homeworld would make sense how to invade a planets. frankly we all know space ships is the future of zero-k someday ;D but other things. newtypes of factories are needed to be made.
