Short Format Rule Changes


General Information —> Setup Options —> Short Format Rule Changes

For a team to succeed in Nu League , at least one of the members must master Short Format games, such as Dogfights and Blitzes. These matches are unlike anything else in Planets, because they end quickly and the maps are small. Overcoming these odds can earn points for a League team.
