Welcome back to the Galactic News. What are the devs working on at the moment? Any change at the top of the Awaken the Dark leaderboards? Read on to find out!
Word from the Devs
A new patch went out this week. It included fixes for a couple of exploitable bugs. Thanks to those of you that gave us a heads-up on them! If you do come across a sensitive/exploitable bug you can report it in private to us via PM on the forum or email email@example.com.
Battle Stats for the Galactic News
This week we were also able to setup exporting battle data for the Galactic News. It wasn’t ready in time for this week’s news but we’re good to go for next week. So make sure you come back next week and check that out, there should be some very interesting insights 🙂
Automated Guard Fleets
One of the most frequent requests from players recently has been for more automatic protection from their fleets while they’re offline. So we’ve started work on this and expect to have it ready for the next patch.
You’ll be able to create ‘guarded zones’ around any of your colonies and assign one or more of your fleets to guard them. It will work similar to the newbie protection NPC guard fleets we added to the Awaken the Dark galaxy. Except you’ll be able to create these zones yourself and control which of your fleets defend them. Any enemy fleets moving into these areas will be automatically attacked – whether you’re online or offline!
Reminder: Main 1 + Skirmish 1 Galaxies to be Removed
On Monday August 17, the Main 1 + Skirmish 1 galaxies will be removed (we announced this a couple of weeks ago). They’ve been running since October 2019 and were superseded by the Main 2 + Skirmish 2 galaxies – which will carry on as normal.
Top Players – Awaken the Dark Galaxy
The Top 10 players from the leaderboards
Master of Warfare
Congratulations to Gavoid the new Grand Emperor and to Dirtdiver1979 the new Master of Warfare!
This is Gavoid’s 2nd week in a row at the top and it’s great to see a Snithereal empire hit the No.1 position for the first time.
Xyle of the People’s Realm put down a phenomenal amount of points in the last week. Will they have enough momentum to capture Gavoid’s title by next week?
Alliance of Warfare
Congratulations SOLID – the new Grand Alliance. They have a strong lead at the top. But will it be enough to keep them on top for the weeks to come?
COTP are once again the Alliance of Warfare. BORG are their nearest competitor yet quite some distance away. A massive war between alliances could change everything though!
See you again next week 🙂
