Hello

It seems that Hackers got a 'New Toy' called 'Artifical Intelligence'

Well, what I'm going to ask here is the fact that I have 'The Squid' means that I no longer need Scanners right? I mean, 'The Squid' is indeed superior in terms of effectiveness. The Sensitivity will still work even throughout the reviving duration right?

The Squid AI won't replace a Scanner outright. Not only can a network have just the one Squid AI (networks later may require multiple Scanners), but the focussed targeting of a Squid probably won't be enough to meet your stealth detection needs!

The sensitivity will work during reviving though - as long as the node isn't upgrading, AIs will function with their full stats during netowrk defence.

And one more thing that I realized is that the revival cost is just keep increasing indefinitely

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

From my usage The squid will randomly move to nodes during stealth, if a program is installed on a node the squid is at it takes an additional vis hit equal to the squids reveal, it does not act like the scanner in that it does not hit ever node in range automatically. That said I believe it does stack with the scanner , however with out a guide I can't be certain.
