Longtime lifetime premo member here (…and finally signed up on the forums). Love this game and your dedication.
I joined the latest Proteus game only to realize when I picked the “custom” avatar for my race, I missed my strength/weakness selections at the top of that screen. It dawned on me too late, after I selected my starting empire. I left the game because I didn’t want to be at what I consider a disadvantage for the length of the game. However, with normal NP game restrictions, I can’t rejoin the same game and make those new selections. Now I have to wait for that game to fill up, which is already sluggish, and then join the following one.
My request is simple: Can you make the strength/weakness selections in Proteus editable until the game actually starts?
