#### Abstract

It is well known that multi-point Seshadri constants for a small number $t$ of points in the projective plane are submaximal. It is predicted by the Nagata conjecture that their values are maximal for $t \geq 9$ points. Tackling the problem in the language of valuations one can make sense of t points for any real $t \geq 1$. We show somewhat surprisingly that a Nagata-type conjecture should be valid for $t \geq 8 + 1/36$ points and we compute explicitly all Seshadri constants (expressed here as the asymptotic maximal vanishing element) for $t \leq 7 + 1/9$. In the range $7 + 1/9 \leq t \leq 8 + 1/36$ we are able to compute some sporadic values.
