Re: Two simple things that piss me off.

Yup, I'm doing the same. Not only I know you're doing the same thing, but also it's not a retarded setup like many networks I've stumbled upon so far. So, hacking you would not only be wrong, but also inefficient ;)

Re: Two simple things that piss me off.

I know how the game works. That's the point of suggesting a change. I personally don't care about gaining rep at this point, but current state of things (losing rep on stealth farm hacks) causes lots of players to have 0 rep, level 8+ cores and pretty much unhackable networks for other people at low...

Re: Considering Total Reputation Dump

It's getting crowded here in the zero-rep zone ;) - I was thinking of cleaning Vnasty, but decided not to bite my own kind ;>

Re: Acess and Data leech

To hit the target for b-coins/cash you need in worse case scenario 10 accesses - which gives you 1620 visibility points and 120 b-coins cost. Upgrading access to level 2 brings the total to 1560 visibility points and 240 b-coins cost. This gives you at most 4 more seconds if no scanners/gates are in...

Re: Two simple things that piss me off.

I've managed my anger fine, by venting it in this thread ;) There's another big problem here... I've got 50k b-coins by stealth and now I have 0 rep. Not that I care that much about it, but: I've got what I wanted from the targets I hacked: their b-coins, yet game deemed this as a failure, because I...

Re: Stealth Attacks

Quick question:

If I use stealth hack to leech out their b-coin mixer, and disconnect before the visibility bar gets full, can they retrace me?

Re: Two simple things that piss me off.

Oh! A constructive response! So lets carry on after all. I think multiple retraces are fine as they are right now. I wrote it after recently hacking someone, them hacking me back (and failing), which gave me another possibility to hack them for pretty much the same amount as on first time, which I t...

Re: What do you like and dislike about Hackers?

Yup. It's caused by disconnection or crash. Game crashed on me two or three times during a hack attempt and that's the result. It's not always 0 resources either -- seems like the client is periodically reporting hack progress to servers.

Re: Two simple things that piss me off.

...or it just means authors wanted to keep error messages in sync with game's aesthetic and atmosphere. But yeah, changing it to for example: 'Your network is currently under heavy load from ongoing hacking attempt. Estimated time to network reset: 02m43s' would clearly be a change for the worse. Sa...

Re: Two simple things that piss me off.

ad 1 and 2) yeah, if you prefer your time to be wasted, then I agree - it's a matter of preference. I would like to waste my time on playing the game instead of managing silly features (hitting moving targets to see if they're worth to loot) or wait for animations to play out only to be presented wi...
