Re: Can we get an actual defence against shocker

Basically, if your opponent is forced to use more than 1 Shocker on a choke, then you're countering the program. Just like defending against Protector means popping it, defending against Shocker means the choke still being up after its effect runs out. I completely disagree with this. When you cons...

Re: Ghost Strategy

I support the idea of a better search and shield system, not to abolish the shield system and make the p2w route the only way of making any sort of significant progress in the game. Many times that you upgraded your Turrets and Guardian, you'd appeared on my search and were online. Without the shie...

Someone shouldn't have to spend 3 hours sitting there spamming retrace while the other person can just go AFK.

Re: Can we get an actual defence against shocker

In my opinion, the 3 hour time frame is a result of a limitation of the game's programming as opposed to actually being a part of the game. That is to say, I believe that the game is originally designed with the intention that you should actually have to defend your network using good layouts, as op...

Re: Can we get an actual defence against shocker

Might as well say "level 1 Wraith will beat both a level 1 and 21 Code Gate in just 2 seconds, where as a level 1 Battering Ram can't, so therefore all you need is a level 1 Wraith". The Shocker is powerful, but you can defend against it by slowing down the attacker, not throwing all your...

Re: Can we get an actual defence against shocker

The problem I have is that fact that there is no defence that can block shocker, only slightly slow it down, I lost 800k this morning to a guy who brought lvl 21 beam, 16 ice wall, and 14 shocker , didn't even need to use protectors my defences got zaped and then taken down before the zap was over....

Re: Can we get an actual defence against shocker

Yes - and you have it. The community needs to stop asking for a defense against Shocker because you can already defend against it. Protectors are what need to be nerfed, not shockers. You can defend against shockers by making time wasting chokes using your gates, guardian and core. Shockers are use...

Re: Experience Points

I have to disagree here however. The ability to delete nodes and be reduced in level, would inevitably see every single network reduced to minimal level, maximum security, cookie cutter network. This would end up crippling the game for new players.. I think you are forgetting that new players will ...

Re: Experience Points

The counter to this however is that if some one wants to Inflate there level it's very easy to do , build a node upgrade a few times then delete and repeat, oh and as a player who wants my levels as low as then can get saying 100% of players don't want there level to go down is flat out wrong and i...

Re: Potential Update Ideas (New Features)

The real problem is that the design of the game encourages minmaxing over progression. Someone who upgrades nodes should always be better off than people who do not. Yet, it has been proven by the likes of iblitxkreig that there is a point where it is better to stop upgrading altogether, as upgradin...
