I'm sorry but I will skip this one. I'll be on holidays for 2 weeks starting on saturday, and also I want to put some time into developing again.

I'm in for the seventh game.
Anyone else in the list that needs to confirm?

If we are 7 players, I guess we shall go for free diplomacy?


TSO, don't take this as a permanent vacation, you and me need to play again :)

Those were my expectations (and why I conceded). NP anyway.

Chato should be nerfed https://github.com/freeorion/freeorion/pull/2687 also it is better to decide what to do with viewtopic.php?p=98768#p98768 before new game.

Thank you, but as Vezzra said I think any of my suggestions are quite fundamental balance changes to population so probably need debating and modelling somewhere. Maybe game 8 ... ;-)

There was a pre-release test build on the 6th. Is that the one we'll be using for this game?

If this is how 7th game will end, I want to ally swaq.


BTW, I like the ring shape.
If you take a look at the map, there are plenty of places to set up two (or three) chokepoints to block pass, so most empires could turttle by concentrating forces in four systems (two on each side of his ring sector), and alliances of two empires next to each other would need two chokepoints per empire.
Also, it makes difficult or impossible that more than two empires attack the same empire. I hope this shape will improve "fairness" in the game for both single and team playstyles.

I've restarted test game again. I would like to have Magnate, JonCST and Hyperant try to play it.

Have you contacted them directly about the test game and have you got an answer? I expect them (or at least Magnate) to not have visited the forums in the recent days.
