About the rules (we become way off topic here, and this has been discussed in length in the feedback / corner): first off, when i signed the rules, they were very different :J. It is prohibited to load any sites of Astro Empires with any other programs than web browsers. Such other programs are in particular so called "Bots" as well as other tools that simulate, replace or supplement the web interface. The same applies to scripts and completely or partially automated programs that provide advantages towards other users and auto-refresh-functions and other browser integrated mechanisms.

AE decided to change them, but never informed the players that agreed to abide to them that they changed. I 'm not a lawyer, but this sound 'strange' to say the least.
I can only say again that i hope that AE does provide some statistic data into the public. Other games have shown that this benefits the game itself.
Very First thing on the ToU:
- We have the right to change the terms and conditions of this site at any time.
