Candidates will you bring back the synthetic red tide?

If yes or no, why?

No. I don't think they were beneficial or made the round more interesting in 90% of cases.

While I like security borgs appearance, I've come to agree with the critique that their theming made players liable to end up playing Robocop Lite even when it contradicted their laws, and represented a balance problem for malf/subverted AIs.

Rather then try to re-introduce security borgs, I'd like to look at the peacekeeper borg and see in what ways we can best make them serve their namesake role, while avoiding the same pitfalls as secborgs.
