Re: Multiple retraces not possible

Now... this statement is a little concerning: It is very special case when someone attacks you that many times and this happens only to players on higher levels. Where well it is a wild cyberspace. The way I read it, you're saying you are aware of this and other major mechanical flaw in the end-gam...

Re: Stealth Attacks

before last update was possible build really unbreakable network. but when turrets start atack with 0.5s it's not possible -------OT------- Are you refering to "lvl 1 Scanner" type of defense? It was more difficult, but not impossible 8-) Please PM if you disagree... I don't want to start...

Re: View player network architecture by username

It would be very helpful to be able to see how experienced players at higher levels have constructed their networks. Is there a way to view the existing network architecture of every player in the game by clicking on the username? Thank you As far as I know, there is no such feature in game (yet?)....

Re: Quick tutorial for beginners.

Hehe, I meant it as a compliment - kinda like Ghostbusters and being Slimed! It was actually fun to watch. Stealth all the way to the Core, passing Code Gates like ghosts and plonking a portal down with 1200 visibility left - was impressive :D You're welcome any time 8-) Thanks. It was a little bit...

Re: Stealth Attacks

That's a good idea. But then pro hackers would be unbreakable, as they would test the Network until its sustainable, costing just 50 bucks. Probably current system is not that bad. :) In my opinion, there is nothing like "unbreakable" network... For every kind of defense, attacker (on sim...

Re: Sentry Paradox

Silken answer is quite accurate. About higher levels, Stealth, etc... placement is still crucial. About the count of Sentries, let's see: ⋅  Ladty (lvl 70) has two Sentries (and beutiful, symmetrical network, btw) ⋅  Lukemk (lvl 71) is currently under Shield (no idea why :) ), so...

Re: Quick tutorial for beginners.

Please, don't use my nick as a swear-word :lol: I'm visiting only very few players below level 50 - only t...

Re: Sentry

I have two 'Legs' with two connections starting each. I have a sentry in each Leg as they are not connected except where they connect toward the hub. All connections are used up in each node, except my Sentrys. If I connect the two sentries, will the one protect the other when someone tries to hack...

Re: Stealth Attacks

I see Stealth as a crucial part of hacking on higher levels... the succes depend heavily on levels of Attackers Stealh programs vs level of defender Scanner(s). I'm using Stealh mode to take down most dengerous part of defense - usually Sentry or CodeGate. Using several Access programs to get access...
