But tbh i'm a little put off when they are rolled out in the middle of a set.
I hear you there. It's hard to keep separate branches of bots going (bugfixes, feature additions), and easier to test against a dynamic market, so that's part of why I've been doing that. Also, two months between iterations of bots makes development slow.
I probably won't make them start *grabbing* until next reset. Anything that does roll in will be not a huge issue...
also seriously if the bots are going to have defense allies can you fix the report on ally losses to properly reflect troops/turrets/tanks and not some randomized number of troops/tanks that doesn't add up ever.
I must have forgotten about that; can you post it on B&S?
