Re: The new update... worsened the game.

I now have incoming DPS that I have to deal with even after using a shocker, which means I might as well use a protector if I can't stop all incoming DPS and use all program slots available for my shurikens. Then find a way to deal with the Hawk! Hence the suggestion of ICE Wall. Tactics will vary ...

Re: Scrolling issue

Since the update, sometimes when scrolling in any of the log, build/buy, or compile/develop windows, it seems to cause the area inside the window to go blank. A small number of times it will come back after a few moments, but mostly it stays blank until you restart the game. Thanks for the report! ...

Its as if the 3d rendering just isn't happening. This only occurs oj my tablet, Hackers runs fine on my phone. My tablet is an ASUS Transformer P...

Re: Possible glitches with new AI

#1: my point is more you are required to have a revived AI to upgrade the node , I don't see why I should have to revive it again after the upgrade. #2: then maybe rename it to refresh maybe, right now it sounds like the AI is dieing every time you use it only to be recompiled using saved code (Dej...

Re: AI update squid underpowered? (Waiting on wiki update)

Unless it gets some major reductions to visibility at higher levels ... it’s almost worthless to get it takes way too long to disable nodes. The Squid stats have been balanced to work against relative level Scanners. Check out the release GIF for an example. http://hackersthegame.com/download/Squid...

Re: The new update... worsened the game.

That remains to be seen. Once we have the data for the AI we can do the papercraft theories on wether there are any Shocker-worthy choke points out there in the presence of these new additions. The Hawk AI doesn't change the strength of nodes that are already connected to a choke point. If a player...

Re: Possible glitches with new AI

Ok found a few possible glitches and or things that don't make sense / could use some work. 1: on upgrade completion you need to revive the AI . Upgraded the squid to lvl 2 and jumped In to a hack with out realizing that it was not available, as your AI is required to be alive to upgrade I couldn't...

Re: About The New AI System

If the Squid was able to use multiple level 21 "Wraiths" while only costing 250 B-coins, that would be rather overpowered!

Re: The new update... worsened the game.

While there's still plenty of tactical discussions to be had, Shocker hasn't been nerfed or slaughtered. Choke points that require shocking still exist. The addition of the Hawk AI means that nodes within Hawk range are attacked on two fronts instead of one, which simply requires two different types...
