My bot has 0 logic for the tesla / remove… remove works on a smaller board, not on a larger board. Unless you want to play games with your opponent, but then you have already won. So what is the point?
I agree that too many changes may be problematic. A simple price change should not tax the developers too much though. And yes demolish has some corner case uses, I just the feel the game would be more interesting if it gave 10 energy or could be done in addition to building another tower.
That sounds fair - 5 points in exchange for a (potentially) useful building isn’t optimal.
Edit: And a price drop on the Tesla tower might bring it into play a bit more often as well. Not so cheap that it loses its value as a ‘super weapon’, but perhaps 200 energy points instead of 300 energy points is still reasonable.
