Re: Comprehensive suggestion for rebalance of Hackers

- Programs will be maintained by the program library. After each hack, your program library must defrag to allow another use of your programs in a hack. Each program library will allow 4 hacks, and the network generates another hack every 3 hours. Credits may be used to fully regenerate a library's...

Re: "Event networks"

I like it.

Although maybe it could be up to x number of people who hacks it, rather than just the first person. Reward diminishes as more people hacks it. If you hacked it once then you can't do it again until next time. Prevents cases where one or two people just gets it every time.

Re: Help need in Program Upgrading Techniques

http://forum.tricksterarts.com/download/file.php?id=427 1. I see that you are leveling Battering Ram, despite already having Blaster level 2. Don't level both. At Early Game, they both serve mostly the same purpose, which is to take out Code Gates. This is because high level Guardians - where Blast...

Re: Help with core lv 8 layout

http://i.imgur.com/33CYvwB.jpg 1. Your network is vulnerable to Stealth. Any level Stealth can currently use Portal to bypass your first Choke Point completely and Portal onto the Sentry at the back. The easiest way to defend against Portal is to use double Code Gate at the front. Adding that 1 ext...

Re: Feedback on net design

https://i.imgur.com/Iq4s7uD.png Your design seems to be near an local optimum for the time being. However, when people start attacking with Portals, your design will be vulnerable to it. They can easily Portal on to the Core with any Stealth level for Scanner level < 11. This will negate your first...

Re: Rams vs. Blasters, 2 vs. 3 Kraken

I'm assuming you mean against Code Gates. The effectiveness of Blaster diminishes as level of Code Gates and Blaster both increases. The effectiveness of Battering Ram improves as level of Code Gates and Battering Ram both increases. At the high reputations, more people use Battering Ram than Blaste...

Re: Does Stealth need nerf?

the mid core levels do not feel balanced because unless you know what the meta network build is. you wont be ABLE to progress anymore because your network cant defend itself. You're right. As it stands, there's no way to backtrack, so unless you either followed the meta, or were clever enough to co...

To calculate how much visibility the stealth attack will ...
