What's "the formless"?
 
Holy moly, that is WAY sooner than I expected. I was expecting 28th Nov/5th December timeframe. What absolutely fantastic news!
Yes, the 3.10 "Pyxis" update will be released alongside Astral Planes.
Will you be able to give us a run-down of all the non-AP 3.10 features tomorrow as well plox, Eladrin? AP is certainly very interesting, but I'm really fascinated by the final Leader fixes too - not to mention everything else in the balance/bugfix/general improvement domain!

Tomorrow will be details on the Origins and Civics. We'll have a diary on Tuesday with the 3.10.0 changes and preliminary release notes because linear time is annoying.

Boy I feel that. What I wouldn't give to trip and fall into a rent in the fabric of space and time in order to find myself at next Thursday.

With the amount of origins and civics the game already has. With the soon added new civics and origin. With the amount of empires I created to use them all. I do believe that the empire's menu need a button to somehow move the empires up and down. It is not really comfortable to do that in the text editor.
