Do I have to start a new game after the Botnet Golem is nerfed? Will the Botnets in my current game still be overpowered?
If I do the new faction thing then the faction would not be on in your game but the botnet would still be there.  So yea, the balance change would not affect already-started games.  That doesn't mean you need to restart, but it would have a bearing on the balance implications of a win.  But not every win needs to cause a bug report ;)

Ok, calling the results on this one.

Botnet, as expected, has already grabbed the trophy (after zombifying it) and run off over the horizon.  I'll probably just do the new-faction thing for them and tweak the impact of the medium/hard options for that faction to better fit the botnet.

And second-place was "None of these need a nerf".  I hadn't decided on exactly how to handle votes for that but I think for now I'll just consider that if "None" beats the number of votes of another option, that other option didn't win :)  Or put another way: generally I'll take the top three winners, but I'll stop going down the list if/when I hit "none".

So for next time if we want one thing buffed/nerfed and everything else left alone, we can vote for it and none?

I suppose that would work ;)  The forum poll thing doesn't work so great for "oppose" options; mantis voting does better for it but the forum ones are far more convenient to hold and have a unified discussion etc.
