Re: Biodome Size Option.

Quick fix: Bio 1 holds up to 5k

Bio 2 5 - 10k, Bio 3 10k - 25k

Better than having 3 types of dome on sale. Allow people to decide and still have the challenge of balancing if required.

Re: 2011 Champ

A tag team champs would be a good solution then. You have to register as a two player corp within the first 24 hrs and that corp is locked in for the entire game, no personalising cols etc. No contracting or trading of planets etc. Solo champs is too anti- starport, but a locked in 2 player corp cha...

Re: 2011 Champ

The starport championships are a reflection of starport the game we play throughout the year, it is a co-op and due to the free to play element, an inherently unbalanced game. Complaining about the championships or extended bangs being decided before they commence is just a complaint that should be ...

Re: biodome prices adjusted?

They are now effectively cheaper, Toonces dropped the starting price so server resets on pax games dont makes prices
so high (and unpredictable) as the game progresses.

Re: Rebangs

The whole reason we have few re-bangs these days is because their were so many that competition was nil.

If someone is winning the same server over and over, form a team and knock him/her off his perch.

Hopefully this loophole will be sorted by Toonces, but I think banning someone for exploiting a loophole is excessive.

Dont worry too much about who will win, just come and take part.
