You can get help here if Freeciv doesn't start on your computer, or if you keep getting fatal errors while playing etc.

How does tech stealing actually work? (probabilities)

Postby Corbeau » Wed Mar 14, 2018 10:21 am

So, once a diplomat steals a tech from a city, no diplomat can do the same at the same city, period. However, what's the situation with spies? At a glance and without serious analysis, we are playing a game where it SEEMS like the chance of a spy stealing a tech from a city depend on whether other spies have already done it at the same city. In other words, the more spies steal from a city, the less chance further spies have to successfully steal from the same city. Can anyone confirm if this is the case?
