Espionage questions

Posted on Thursday, May 18, 2017

1. When I assign a spy on an AI faction then they won't level up because they are not assigned to a planet. Is this intentional?

2. When I assign a spy to one of my planets what is the effect? Do they work as counter spies like unassigned spies?

3. What effect has spy level anyway?

4. I read complaints that your counter spies are not able to prevent enemies stealing your tech. Is that true and if yes, is that intentional? Or are there other ways to prevent tech stealing?

5. When an AI faction steals tech from me I see who it was in the notification on the upper left. Is that because I have myself "ultra" espionage level on them or is that a glitch? Does the AI also know who steals them tech?

Thanks in advance for any answers
