As of 12:00 PM today SK time, it is now allowed (via vote) to hit the bots.
Regarding those who have been ignoring the rules, the initial sentence was death, but I feel that is a bit too harsh for the crime, the sentencing guidelines have been reduced to the below
There was a blanket rule in place before then, and those who broke it will be punished. The reason this punishment will be carried out is it is important to respect the rules as defined by the community. Playing fairly and correctly can and should always simply be the most optimal way to play. I realize some people will simply choose to ignore rules as they see fit, so the universal deterrent will be no reward/advantages for breaking the rules, only punishment. You are free to break the rules as much as you like, but consequences are harsh and guaranteed.
As discussed on the discord, I don't have an issue with people hitting the bots, although I personally voted 'no' on allowing it, but I do have an issue with people gaining advantages by ignoring the rules.
Enforcement & future deterrents will be as such;
1 Hit on bots pre-allowance = Fails equivalent to your current defense at time of sentencing.
Example: You have 20k tanks defense at time of sentencing, so 10 bots will send 2000 tanks as "fails" equivalent to a hit to damage your defense, but you will be allowed to keep the land
2 Hits on bots pre-allowance = 2x the sentence
Example: You have 20k tanks defense, so 20 bots will send 2000 tanks as fails equivalent to two hits worth of damage on your defense, but you will be allowed to keep the land
IMPORTANT: I HAVE MADE A SLIGHT SENTENCE REDUCTION TO 3+ HITS BELOW BECAUSE I FEEL 3x FAILS IS TOO HARSH
3+ Hits on bots = 2x current defense "fails", then .25x per hit beyond that. Meaning if you attacked bots 4x, you will get 2.5x your defense worth of fails
20k base defense x 2.5x = 50k tanks sent at you but not enough to break
@Robtomo FYI, any hits on bots before 12:00 PM today will fall under these rules, as well as for rounds going forward.
