#The game has ended!
Thanks all participants for being guinea pigs!
The final score and more statistics is here.
These are the team captains. Ask them for the game password.
#Don’t forget to use team names!
Every hour, an automated script checks the ownership of few selected stars. Teams gain points for those. The winner will be decided after 29 cycles and 27 ticks (the 30th cycle).
Teams consist of 3 players.
1) Trading only within teams.
2) It is forbidden to capture enemy’s home star.
[size=12]Attacking enemy homeworlds is discouraged, unless the attacker knows exactly what he is doing - like when you have EVERY star around the home world and you want to cut down the numbers.[/size]
[size=12]If the defender purposely sends all his ships away to let the attacker capture it, there should be a discussion about following steps within warring teams and the player or his team should reacquire the homeworld back. The player alone, who let his homeworld fall into enemy hands BY PURPOSE, should be banished and his teammates should get the world instead.[/size]
[size=12]If you capture enemy homeworld, you must leave and abandon it ASAP. You must withdrawn all ships and allow the enemy team to retake the star without a fight.[/size]
3) Formal alliances are encouraged,
but not enforced. It’s up to anyone to decide when is the right time.
(You will potentially need it to be able to support your allies with ships.)
4) Everything what isn’t written here is allowed and encouraged.
If you are not sure, ask in the hangout or here.
5) The rules listed here are subject to change or specify after suggestions and discussion with players.
*note that the game does not actually support the rules I listed. It’s up to players, so please… let’s enjoy the game!
Once I invite you, you will find the invitation in hangouts/menu.
If you have never used hangouts before, you must open gmail. The hangouts controls are then at bottom left or bottom right corner.
This is “hangouts extension” for chrome. It’s cool, sometimes annoying, but still cool…
Chrome webstore - Hangouts extension

I suggest we use a united string for teams. It worked well in the other team game we played.
Valid team names can contain a team tag

Please note that this setting is experimental. If it doesn’t work, we may adjust it and remake the game.
