Ok...  any way of turning that sucker off???  really messes up FFA play when you know whoever fights it will be the weakest...   not to mention times when there's only 2 players in a room with the bot...

Argggh!  I thought he fixed that!  That's the exact same thing I told him, and he said he'd disable the bot any time there was more than one person in the room.  Guess it wasn't quite as disabled as I he thought!

yea, the bot me and musician were in would suicide on a random person, then not stop until that person was out. Messes up the balance of the game :(

Also - b0t-classic appears to be more of a human than a bot.  It takes up room in a server, takes up a color, and is ranked.  It took me a while to realize b0t-classic was actually a bot.









b0t-classic is a bot, right?

Okay - so I've made the bot be more polite now.  When there are 2 or more human players in the room the bot will go /away.

Aye .. Maybe I over did it?  Or maybe I should have different difficulty level bots in different rooms .. who knows :)  I saw that the bot was slaughtering lots of n00bs, which I felt was kind of harsh!

Yup just like a human, no matter how many people are there he suicides on me every time. But then, who doesn't?

Anyway, that was a good thing to get fixed. I felt so bad when I lost to a guest just because a bot went all out on me.

Yes, less thirsty for blood now.  I think it should be in more servers, and not count as a player in the server list.

I like the bot, it's good use to kill time while waiting for other players to join. I do agree that it would be beter for the bot to /part when there are 2 or more players in the server to make room for others.

Also, would be nice to have a easy and a hard bot, i find the current bot to boring to play against :)

Perhapts allow us to send commands at the bot like /m b0t level 7 :)

or just have two/three bots to make it more intuitive.
Instead of having the same bot player in three rooms, have like: bot-Easy  bot-Medium  and  bot-Hard, so people can actually choose and be aware.
(I am considering the current bot is bot-Easy, cuz man, that thing is dumb... launches random attacks at random greys, even expensive little ones, EVEN when the attack won't capture the planet? Come on now.)

Guys, just remember that Phil is working hard, it seems, on iPhone/iTouch Galcon's big upgrade right now and for the rest of July, so he'll only be thinking about and working on Flash Galcon in August. Just a reminder :)

yeah eragmus we know, thats why we want to write everything down already, so as soon as he has time to work on it, he'll already know what we want, and it will save some time.

dorus, that was cheap though, you had 3 different windows, thats not fair for the poor dumb0t! You gotta play it all on the same browser window, using only different tabs, so you can only see 1 screen at a time :)
