Hello, I can't connect to my account for several days Hey, thanks for the screenshot, that's most useful! The image shows that the game is connecting to our server, but is getting stuck near the end, which is usually where a network/account is validated. There's 2 main causes for this: 1) Issue wit...

Re: Stealth 21lvl

I'll "System"atically add these to the wiki over time, so there's not a stealth flood - wiki sidebar space is limited!

Thanks for the feedback and response - your remaining advice is solid! High level Blasters and Battering Rams are very rare early on, making Code Gates fantastic defensive nodes as you mentioned :D

Re: Real hackers ?

There's not a huge visibility difference using the program levels mentioned, but there could certainly be other elements in play such as directly accessing code gates, network paths which avoid Scanners etc. Could you provide a video of your replays, or possibly a screenshot of your network with the...

Re: Rebalance towards stealth and AI Squid

I can't say I remember that information on the wiki, but as my edit count is over 9000 (literally), there'll always be something I've forgotten. xD A network facing max level stealth programs needs the maximum number of gates in the direct path of an attacker to prevent being accessed past node 6.
