Are we allowed to build other units then probe droids? Or is it a probe droid only game?

Are you allowed to make more workers or is it limited to the 3 you start with? And are you allowed to use the workers to knock down buildings? And what difficulty level? What pop cap? Can you build more or less probots, or is it strictly 50? What buildings are you allowed to build and where?

I think more workers are allowed just build 50 probe droids in the least amount of time

Wow only 50 probots...somehow workers are almost more effective...I once won a game making scouts only but I'm not sure if it's doable with probots. Hmmm interesting...

So, is this a player vs. computer challenge?

And how do you do screenshots in GBG? It sounds interesting, I'm game to give it a try. :p

Yes player vs computer

To take a screenshot, there is a key on your keyboard called Print Screen.

Print Screen is in a 3 key selection with scroll lock, pause break

When you press the PrintScreen button, GB saves the screenshot to the game directory, so go there and you should find your screenshots.

DMUK you still didn't tell us how many workers we can have, and if we can have them I presume they are to stay out of the fighting!

hmmm how can you expect to destroy forts with 50 probots only?
At least worker with that weird "more damage vs buildings" upgrade are capable of destroying them.

Workers are to keep out of battle and the idea is that you build the required probes then off to battle.

It is possible you just have to be very quick because if the enemy starts building forts etc, its more or less over by then ;-)

So...you never *did* say how many workers we can have? I guess it's unlimited as long as they stay out of battle? Anyway, tis interesting.

Oh, and Frosted, I like your sig, haha. Except I think you meant "Disagree and I'm not responsible FOR the emotional wounds that will haunt you for life"

I want that sig. :p

Obviously you haven't tried to fight them with probots only...

Are you allowed to do turret/fort pushes or would that count as workers in combat? And can you build extra CCs to get more workers more quickly?

All combat comes from the probe droids
