The tick speeds can indeed be changed per era. I intend to give players the option of voting every era where possible so that we can do our best to give you guys what you wish to play. However, I do ask that you all keep a few things in mind. We will not change settings mid era regardless of how much the voting has shifted. I know quite a few in game have asked me to change the era to a 4 ticker as it has shifted to more votes, but the settings have been made already. The voting will be based on the votes at the time of the server set up. Also, I will try to steer away from replicating the same parameter's as era's that are already in play (and we have a 4 ticker already on galaxy). If you wish to see certain things ingame, then I urge you to say something here on the forums and to encourage others to join and vote for them. Things like in-game perks/events can be done mid-era to some extent pending what they are (so long as they won't affect how the overall era will be running). I hope you all have fun!
