Re: Potential Update Ideas

Actually it wouldn't. All thresholds do is reduce the amount of rewards. But it would do so for everyone. The Net affect is that the average reward would fall. But you would still be attacking the same people. By that I mean - generally i attack people with 40k+ gold. If a threshold was included th...

Re: Potential Update Ideas

Hey guys, So I haven't been playing long, but seriously love the game and its concept so far. Just read through about 8 pages of this thread so far to get a idea of what people were thinking and I've had a few ideas I thought the Admins/Devs may like. I'm actually a developer myself and so I know s...

Re: Potential Update Ideas

It'll be rather nice to get attacked by AI. Random access by random hackers (system generated) that can only occur when you are playing. Almost procedurally generated attacks. So this will be the scenario: 1) Playing online, casually looking at my own network then SUDDENLY 2) "WARNING, INCOMING ATT...

Re: Considering Total Reputation Dump

So wanted to update my situation for those interested. I didn't do a "total" as I was originally considering, but I did force fail several hacks using stealth. I dropped from 950 or so rep to about 750. The difference in search results has actually been astonishing. I now almost never see a target ...

Re: Which to upgrade?? and quedtion about thread

Definitely beam. Kraken is very expensive, and I don't see a single upgrade of it dramatically increasing effectiveness. You will also find as you advance that kraken is increasingly less useful because only a very particular base setup is vulnerable to kraken. As players realize how the meta of thi...

Re: Acess and Data leech

I agree generally with what's been said. I am very focused on stealth hacking atm, and I have been playing extensively with access, wraith, leech and portal. I have access level 2. I'm not sure when I should take it any further. Considering the cost, I wish it decreased the stealth time by more than...

I'm sure those level 50s and 70s I see on the leaderboard have developed it. I've just never seen them on the forums, lol.

Re: Repeat hacks?

As I've mentioned in some of my other posts, the search algorithm needs serious tweaking. Right now, I think the search parameters are very narrow. People tend to repeat in search results a lot. If you have high rep, you might want to dump some rep. It will reconfigure your search results and you mi...

Re: Considering Total Reputation Dump

Let's just totally remove the rep system. It is useless and pointless. Instead, the search should prioritise on level and not rep. Rep can easily be gained or loss and let it be a natural cause. If you include both rep and level, it will just skew the search results at either end. I have reached th...
