Squad Update:

  • War started again in Yemaia (leading 1-0).
  • Potentially overheating in 7 systems
  • Still trying to build our influence in 7 (other) systems.
  • NOT looking to start another expansion until we know what the Caustic Cloaca’s are up too (and maybe not even after).
  • Please remember to mark the standing orders post with the appropriate emoji when doing BGS work.  This not only helps others see what has already been done, so they can better decide where to apply their efforts, there MAY just be a little contest going for the month of November…

All details in the #standing-orders and/or the #loose-screws-factions channels of the Discord.

Dev news:

  • In the final hours several squads made big final pushes, including 2 we weren’t even watching
  • …But so did we. dropping approx 96 billion in the final 4 or 5 hours.
  • Chig: Our very last run at the mega ship last night was to kill one last 'goid and call it.  A clops dropped...we couldn't end on that!  We then had a double drop of 'dusa and basi, then a basi, then a basi.  With who we had in there that last hoorah got us 780m.  Margin of victory was 778m.  We only needed the clops…
