The first duels

UPDATE: I have received 50 designs yet and the first 48 designs participate in the evaluation round. The first duel is already finished BUT YOU CAN STILL SUBMIT FURTHER DESIGNS. When I have 56 designs I will build the next 8 player save and so on. Be aware that this is just a first round to gain some experience about the pool of designs.

It is a so called knock-out but nothing serious happens this round. Even when you lose the first round your design will participate in the qualifyings next month. The results of this evaluation are just used to determine the qualifying groups.

When you lose the first round it doesn't mean you have a poor design. It is simply a lot of Rock-Paper-Scissors in these duels. Check out the other designs in the save, ask some participant for training duels (you should have his e-mail address). I hope that you'll have new ideas after the first battles and you'll submit new designs for the qualifyings next month. You can also redesign your current fleet but you can't choose new techfields in this case. The most successful designs of the first evaluation will be presented here. It is a first "small deadline": After presentation there is a maximum of 2 further designs. There are further restrictions: For example I won't accept copies of the successful designs. (But counterdesigns are ok.)
