Re: using level in matchmaking is causing so many problems

snip So you're essentially trying to use reputation like an ELO system? I see where you're coming from. But consider this. The game is asymmetrical - attacking and defending are two completely different game. Using reputation alone for matchmaking would allow for a meta where someone builds minimal...

Re: using level in matchmaking is causing so many problems

snip So how will you address these problems that your suggestion create? You didn't seem to mention it anywhere. Additionally, if we don't use level, then what do we use? Reputation? Then those people in the 90s who have 2k reputation will be attacking level 40s with 2k reputation? That won't even ...

Re: To cluster or not to cluster

I like to cluster my defenses, but make sure there are no connections between nodes on the same layer, so that way nodes are still won back easily, but the choke point will not earn support until it captures a node, and then that node capturea another. Best of both worlds (almost).

Re: Potential Update Ideas

I got 5 so far: 1. New program "Mark" Affected node is always targeted first, gives an upgradable damage boost (30% - 60% maybe), can be placed in stealth (possibly several nodes away from nearest access so it isnt useless on high levels, this could also be upgradable) or on nodes adjacent to captur...
