It’s been awhile since any significant changes have been made, but here’s a rundown of what’s new:
- Bots have been reduced in number from 30 to 20.
- For now, cloaking-class bots have been disabled in an effort to curb the tendency of the non-cloakers to mercilessly kill them over and over, which in turn leads to having bots with much higher scores than should be reasonably achievable. And really, they’re pretty easy for humans to scum kills off-of too.
- The DY-600 bot population has been reduced and their AI has been tweaked. They had an amusing, but annoying habit of boosting each others’ scores to ridiculous levels without actually ever killing each other. Hopefully, they won’t do that anymore.
- Ferengi ships now spawn in Gamma, as they’re supposed to.
As always, feel free to comment. Any feedback is appreciated.
