Welcome back to the Galactic News!
The new and improved Awaken the Dark galaxy – Andradite – launched last Friday. If you haven’t joined yet now is a fantastic time to do so. It’s still early days but the galaxy is already bustling with activity.
Word from the Devs
Before we take a closer look at what’s been going on in the Andradite galaxy, we wanted to give you a quick update on the plan for next week.
Early next week (Monday or Tuesday) we’re releasing a patch. It will address the issue of not being able to transfer all colonists/troops off a colony due to the fast growth rate (see more), fix a very annoying bug that can cause the game client to crash when viewing another player’s fleets perform certain actions, as well as several other small bug fixes. Later in the week we expect to be able to give you more details on what we’re working on next 🙂
Top Players – Andradite Galaxy
The Top 10 players from the leaderboards
Master of Warfare
Congratulations to this week’s Grand Emperor shock and chiral the Master of Warfare! Ripchee players have come flying out of the blocks but a long line of Syntis players are in pursuit of them and Praetor of the People’s Realm. No Mankind player in the top 10 of either leaderboard just yet, despite HRex73 running away with the previous ATD galaxy playing as Mankind.
Alliance of Warfare
Nicely done Chaos, Grand Alliance and Alliance of Warfare after just one week. But this galaxy is fast. These leaderboards could look totally different this time next week! If you want to find out more about how alliances work in-game, check out the wiki.
Fleet Combat (Andradite Galaxy)
This heatmap shows the major hot zones of the Andradite galaxy over the last week – the areas where the biggest and most fleet battles took place:
- Yellow is low, Green is medium, Red is highest
- Based on sizes of both fleets and number of battles (little battle activity may not be visible)
- 234 PvP fleet battles analyzed from between Sept 25 to Oct 02 (battles with pirates were excluded)
The above tables breakdown the combined state of both fleet combatants at the start of each battle:
- Number of Ships: the total number of ships across both fleets
- Total HP: the sum of all ship’s HP (hull points, hull strength)
- Total DPS: the sum of all ship weapons’ – energy and ordnance – DPS (damage per second)
As you might expect for the first days of a new galaxy, the majority of fleet battles were between smaller, weaker fleets. But there were a few bigger clashes out there!
See you next week 🙂
