Re: Need serious help on my Base.

Ok I am pretty new to the game and I just need help on my Base...I don't really understand the basics very well as well First off, welcome to the forums, we're glad to add another to our ranks. You're already a better player than probably 90% of the playerbase because you weren't afraid to ask for ...

Re: guardian refuses to work

Thank you for reporting. I've been debugging that fight - all is technically working as expected, although it might not look that way. In reality, the Guardians protection is still present on that sentry, so Guardian does not install another one. But it has so low health that the visual indicator h...

Re: guardian refuses to work

Is that sentry upgrading? Guardians might not shield nodes that are in the process of upgrading. I've heard of a number of bugs related to guardians so it might be something else.

Re: Attacking "frayed" networks

Would the sentry get priority even if antivirus had spread to all of the resource nodes? If so then we'll pretend the resource nodes are attached to the black ices instead (one black ice getting the b-coins and the other getting the cash). Either way, do you think you could take this out with enough...

Re: Request for a new board index for game ideas.

Do you know what a great idea would be? Hijacking this thread from the OP and turning it into the new place for people to leave game ideas! I'm sure that's a great idea that the OP will just absolutely love!

Re: Attacking "frayed" networks

I figured that there would be some sort of simple counter to it and portals makes sense. But for someone like me that doesn't have portals yet (I'm currently researching wraiths), what would you recommend in the meantime? Just avoid networks like these?

Attacking "frayed" networks

Lately, I've noticed a number of networks that instead of using standard choke points they would attach security nodes to the sides of a long snake-like network and use attack priorities to their advantage. The security nodes would only be attached to the main body so if I captured one I would almos...

Re: How to defend against blaster + protecter combo?

I haven't really tried to fight it but the ideal set up would be either 4 black ices + 1 guardian chokepoint or 3 black ices + 1 sentry + 1 guardian chokepoint. 4 black ices would probably be better if you have all of them upgraded to a high level and the attacker's Protector is really high level. ...

Re: Stealth, scanners and code gates [GUIDE]

I've got some questions regarding placement of code gates and scanners. If I only have 1 maxed out scanner (my other one is level 1) and I want to keep it overlooking my code gates should I put it and my code gates up front or in the back? Scanner and code gates up front would better defend against ...

And needs to be leveled quickly, or people will stealth you. That core looks like it's level 6 which mean...
