Its a question or not if computer players should be in the game for BETA. Right now im using computer players for just testing. Vote let me know your thoughts.

I voted no, but I would say it actually depends.

If you were to say... add in severely powerful (accounts unbeatable for years) copies of the ACTUAL system lords of the time (Apophis, Baal, Yu, Sokar, Cronus, Nirti, Seth etc etc, obviously not Anubis as he was banish during this period) then i'd agree, purely to stop some noobs claiming to be them and re-writing history.

We agreed to put a name blocked in anyway didn't we? That'l suffice otherwise.

I don't know how the coms behave. During beta we may not have as many players as we want. And I'm not sure how players behave or how players can be of a benefit to each other. So would these coms serve as farms? Or bullies to overcome?

I'd say yes to this, but only if there was some sort of story line backing each System Lord, like a quest. It could even follow the actual story line of SG-1.

Aye, I back Dexter on this. Story line that'd fit with SG series and a reward being given upon their destruction would be a must for having comp players and if that was met, it'd be good to have some comp players as well :) Not too many, obviously, and those that would have been there would have to be extremely powerful.

The AI you are playing with now is just for testing. It wouldn't be the computers I would have in the game.

i voted no, but i think computer players are a very nice idea. the problem with them is only that they allow the human players to get too powerful too fast, because they are very easy to defeat. you can take their resources and their naquadah und recruit huge armies and develop very fast. i think that should not be the goal of the game... who can defeat more computer players in a short time.

so i really like thee idea of non-human players but they must play more differently and i am not sure if they should be there from the very beginning.

computer players should be worked out different way than current

the computer/ai planets should grow evryday defenses and resources higher ai planet level higer defense growth and resource amount growth howewer i think this should be something like

*AI/computer players should spydrone random players and from time to time attack undefended planets

=when computer attack player planet it wont be sieged or destroyed computer will take your resources. you can attack back and recover all he stole from you

*allowing computer players to expand current ai planets should be vacant and AI player should with time take the vacant planets vacant planets means no defense so players could use that for advantage

* stargate planets usage change - player now have manually rewrite the destintion planet to make attack or reinforcing it

*ai players shall never
1. long siege planets 2 - 4h sieges are OK
2. take-over player planets , AI players can take over only vacant planets
3. AI players will use stargated systems to gain some advantage to make suprising attacks
4. ai player should never use flagship to attack other players but troops/bombers/motherships and fighters ok

other things ai related
ai planets owned by computer players should have scheme

planet lvl 3 to lvl 6 moderate defenses , average amount of resources and naquadhah , gated planets some of technology points

planet lvl 7 to 12 strong defense , large amount of resources and naquadhah , gated planets average amount of technology points

planets from lv1 13 and higher , very strong defenses huge amount of resources and big amount of naquadhah along decent amount of technology points

as for planets from level 1 to level 3 defenses should be low up to medium with small/medium amount of resources and naquadhah gated systems should have some technology points
