The reason I did not want bots on continuum is that they would ruin the stats, created mostly by real people playing on continuum. I would not be against a "PRE-T" mode on continuum. Where bots would be in the game to get a 4x4 game going with planet taking and bombing. But the stats should not be affected (well, except for kill ratio). When there's enough for t-mode. The bots should ALL LEAVE. And t-mode begin. Then if there's not enough people for t-mode. There should be a delay, say 5 minutes. then PRE-T re-commence. Optionally (though slightly against this), there could be a galaxy reset when switchng between PRE-T and regular t-mode. So the game can really start with a new foot. Maybe we should limit the galaxy resets to once every 2 hours (if there was a galaxy reset < 2 hours ago, won't reset again). Jimmy P.S. I have crappy stats on continuum. But I wouldn't want to see them magically rise because a bunch of bots keep t-mode up 24x7.
