I just increased the amount of indy tech indy bots will buy, to balance them better.

now add a fix to the maximum price they purchase at by amount of turns played.
more turns = lower maximum
(<(<>(<>.(<>..<>).<>)<>)>)

The techer bots need to tech more is one of the biggest issues.

Looking at their stats, I think they're just not doing well, so they don't tech so much.

need to lower their land requirement before they tech otherwise they grow more then teching from being farmed.

also this to balance the techer strat all together to other strats.

if you set a price ceiling it will just make them hoard cash when prices are above that which is not beneficial to the game imo.

Just changing the tech price equilibrium that the bots have with no player played countries will balance this. Making techer bots tech slightly more and perhaps making casher, indy and farmer bots spend money a little differently will be enough.

Its a supply and demand problem, so lower bot demand and increase bot supply. :)

when is no tech to buy they buy military units until they reach their DPA goals which they rarely ever do.

Actually, if you do the math most bots are at their DP/A requirements it is just set quite low.

Ignorant question: Is there a reason why bots would not be able to use standing orders, at least in some limited capacity?
And, Monsters, do not forget to specify, when time and place shall serve, that I am an ass.

another ignorant question - do techer bots tech 1 turn then sell then tech another? cause they have like 15k labs and <100k total tech 3/4 of the way through a set.

No, they were trying to explore if they were below average land on the server though

well in FFA its impossible for all-x to stay above avg land since that half a million acres country rises avg land much more than those 100 acres countries drop it. not that its easy on alliance either.
