We’ve been asked if we’re going to reset the Skirmish and Main galaxies because of the exploits that were introduced with Play with Friends. After analysing the data we’ve concluded it’s better to keep Skirmish and Main running and don’t plan to reset them at this time.
Across the playerbase the exploit was used to a relatively low degree, whereas a reset would affect everyone and likely cause much more frustration. Of the players that did use the exploit only a handful used it to a significant degree while others used it only once or twice. We do appreciate that if you are next to one of these players it will be dissapointing and we apologize to you for this. But for most of you it should have little to no affect on your game.
At some point we may well add a new game slot but that won’t happen before more new features are added – in particular those that make sense to be introduced with a new galaxy – or when a new game type is ready…
