Re: Scanner

Don't "ever" use Access on a non-disabled CodeGate if a Scanner is in range I know you mean well, but seriously, the space Wraith takes can be more valuable than the stealth bar you save by doing this. Again, really depends, but I purposefully did exactly that several times, install access on activ...

Re: Positioning Turret

Well the best (highest rank) players (idk about Gream nor SolidSnake's networks because I've never been able to find them) have them connected to the Scanner. So yes it's a good strat, but the problem is that if the hacker uses a shocker, your defense is quickly down. So, unless you don't have to de...

Re: Scanner

If you're not familiar with Stealth attacks, I just give you one advice : Don't "ever" use Access on a non-disabled CodeGate if a Scanner is in range The reason is simple : When you do so, instead of only taking 1 sec to install, it will take 5 sec (or something close to that). The reason is because...

Is there an actual point on 'wasting' a Wraith to disable the Scanner? Unless it's in the middle of the network, is there really a use in that?

Re: Scanner

That's right, for example an access takes 1sec to deploy and has a visibility of 150 at first. So it means the visibility bar will increase by 150. Though if it's close to the Scanner (3 tiles) well this will be increased by a certain percentage (at base : 120%). So you do the maths :D Now I'm not s...

Hmm, Stealth is even more powerful than I thought... I will probably rebuild network somehow... again 8-)
If you need again, I can test it and record it again :)

Re: Kraken

Fantom: In your other posts you mentioned, that the biggest problems are with sentries so you try to disable them if possible. I didn't say they were the biggest problem, or I didn't mean to say so. I only meant that to prevent from "my" types of hacks (idk if other people use this strategy) I pref...

Kraken

So first of all, I've never used it, but I know how it "sorta" works. It's one of the most powerful, maybe the most powerful hack you can use at mid/high level. And probably one of the most common strategies. 40 damages per Kraken, and knowing that they will obviously add up in the end makes a very ...

Re: Stealth Attacks

Hey there :) It depends. If the Stealthy attack is directed towards destroying the CodeGate, you can't really do much. When I hack a network, my top priority is to take down the network's Sentries, so no antivirus is going around. I have some trouble to beat networks which have many Sentries, well p...
