I think that implies that you will never be able to steal from peaceful bots if you join gdi ... and that if you do steal, then you can never join gdi ...

Have i got that right?

There is a challenge coming up on express and i don't play enough to know the fine points

Thanks!

Hehe, "rise of the bots?"

Let me know when there is a work bench and a robust "bot-code" interpreter ready, and we'll craft up some seriously smart bots that make aggressive retals ... wink wink

But with respect to express gdi, the short game and length of peaceful waiting seems to me to make flipping gdi status problematic ... more of an in or out choice i think. And i think being in gdi seems to forbid full scale plunder of a bot as there is no declare war option. And playing without gdi seems to be like waving a red flag in an arena full of bulls.

Cheers!

Heya DancingBear.

There is no declare war in express.

GDI is set long... no leaving and rejoining.

It won't stop you from stealing money or bushels though. While it will technically break gdi with the country you are stealing from...as long as it is a bot you are fine.

And don't listen to Marshal. He doesn't play Express and gives bad advise ;)

Thanks beerdrinker ... er, having one myself atm :)

*sips cool ipa*

I think you are correct on the final decision aspect of express gdi, at least i kinda remember it that way ...

But i also seem to remember that me being in gdi prevented me from stealing tech ... but maybe i am wrong ... i haven't played express except as a test bench in awhile.

I reckon i'll get to test it soon enough.

Gdi will stop you from stealing technology and doing other harmful ops.

But you said above that i can steal money and bushels? Is tech different?

Or did you mean that if i was not gdi, i could steal from bots without consequence?

But i think the consquence is that i could not join gdi ...

So this is the root of my question - can i ever steal anything from a bot and ever be in gdi?

I apologize if i seem dim whitted.

gdi stops you doing alot things unless you break it and if breaks gdi on human player you might get parking lotted and same thing if you aren't in gdi.

DB you can steal bushels and cash(maybe oil too) while in gdi. You can't steal tech.

I always join gdi before leaving protection. I pretty much steal all the food I need for the set. But yeah be careful it really is a bot.

It is not unusual to find bots with over 10m bushels on hand or techer bots holding $1.6B cash lol.

Good luck! I would try too but I see gerdy is in the challenge and no way I can beat him lol.

P.S.- Just remember to join gdi before doing any stealing.

You should give it a shot - gerdler can probably embarass me too - but in my opinion, to play a novel challenge against the best is an opportunity not to be missed.

Hope you change your mind.
