Re: [/////] IS MY BASE DESIGN GOOD?[\\\\\]

As said above. 3 sentries are not needed for a network of your level. Have one connected in such a way to spread with the security nodes active. Also I dont see many chokes that would be tough for players to get deeper in your network. If you have a low firewall node such as scanner could be used as...

Re: Core 3-5 Ideas [IDEAS/INSPIRATION]

Having thus guide is helpful. But for chokepoints to be effiecient. You need to have high level sentry. Make sure to max it at the current core level that it allows you to. Having a low level can be a huge disadvantages to these network structures

Re: [Program Idea]: Hybrid Programs.

They may have not agreed with this suggestion. Reducing effectiveness of certain programs based on combination would make thinngs too difficult. Reducing the damage output at scanner chokes makes hacking pointless since it would take too long to get through easily. The AI are meant to be effective u...

Rebalance towards stealth and AI Squid

I'm curious to know why the stealth buff on all visibility was necessary. I have seen level 21 programs go very far inside a network. And AI Squid is obsolete when it can be easily avoided
