If you're looking for a nice quiet game where you can develop your economy and empire in relative peace, then this aint it. The Pit is a complete bun-fight more suited to experienced players rather than newbies. Not an easy scenario, but definitely an entertaining one. Still some great races available too

Agh, so tempting :(

But I may have to travel to the US for business for about 3 months.
If so I'll not be able to give this the time it deserves.

I should know that at the end of next week, so I hope a spot will be left.

Funny you said that FireAge... Desert-Fox who used to be a Co-Op here and I used to have a running joke where the punch line was along the lines of "You have to be unemployed to play a good game of VGA Planets".

So true :(

Glad I do not have kids yet. Which leaves me with 2 hours to kill every evening.
And as I need 2-3 hours per turn per game (more if its weekend and I have time to ponder), 2 games is my limit.

Fortunately BT15 is not taking so much time anymore, as I am dying rapidly.
But if I go travel, I need to do turns on a laptop, which means either the turn quality goes down, or the hours per turn go up :P

And the amount of addons in the Pit is massive, meaning even more time needed per turn...

I would join this game, but I do not play timhost. I only play on phost. I will wait. I would like to see a game on phost, where players level not less than Solar knight.

Come one come all.

The only addon you need to worry about is Jupiter and believe me it's a bonus :)

Yes it seems very nice, but it also gives yourself and your opponents extra options.
And when making a turn, you have to take all of those options into account.

Or well... I have to :oops:

That's true and the beauty of addons.

Only two races remain, both with good advantages due to Jupiter. The Empire has that Gorbie tractor beam which will capture enemy ships, even if they are cloaked in the same turn. I lost at least one Resolute to it a few games :upset: . The Rebels have a couple of good features - RSM and starbase sabotage, and due to the layout of the map, any race with a decent hyperjumper will be at a distinct advantage for expansion in the early game

And a 50% ESB Patriot is just awesome :)
