Any idea of when we're going to get this?
Except instead of messing with the fort system, leave the fortress system, but have them fight over the Crystal Palace, which in my storyline is able to move anyways and someone like me, storyline at least, would be controlling it. The prizes/awards depend on percent of total time the Crystal Palace is held and if someone is strong enough to hold the Crystal Palace the entire time then they get a rare item or resource that's especially strong and worth fighting over.
Also about this coming to us?
In my storyline we had to assemble ship pieces, so maybe special resources, ship pieces (10 or a complete one depending on Crystal Palace and other events), and so forth that can be used to upgrade various parts of different ships. Maybe even if they get enough pieces to the Battle Cruiser full techs and enough upgrades, it'll change into another type of ship, like the Khaos ship type which takes 30-40 str per ship, but much higher armor, weapons, and 7-8 bays. Definitely something to war for other than basic ships.
It can play into the supremacy stars opening and powerful forts and such there, including an almost impossible to beat Imperial Palace in each system, with the center system having the Emperor's Palace which will need a team of almost all Khaos and fighter fleets to take it down with only the best techs. The 4 alliances to hold the Imperial Palace and the Emperor's Palace at the end for 1 month win the round with a legendary story, with the leader and longest vice leader of the alliance holding the Emperor's Palace being in the center two of the 10 chairs and the next two vice leaders of the Emperor's Palace Alliance or if not enough vice leaders then vice leader and oldest player once the 4th alliance completes the month sit to the right of the main leader. Similar to the story to rule the galaxy and the alliances are written down in history and a new solar system begins. Also with link to the winning alliances, their leaders, and the top 200 rankings, with the leaders and vice leaders of each alliance being color coded and then their officers a lighter color as a special honor for the 4 alliances winning.
