Well, it looks like the hammer fell after all: we're going to call it quits. That's quite alright, I think the outcome of this game has been more or less settled anyway.
Since perhaps not everybody will look at their last RST I figured a forum message would be more appropriate to thank everyone for playing. It has been an interesting game. In fact, although unfortunately I haven't had any direct exposure to the Crystalline Entity and Jump Gate add-ons, I for one quite like the concept coupled with a clustered map and I'd love to play a similar game some time in the future.
So perhaps some of us will meet again in Cluster Wars 2 [-o<
