Re: Suggest new node type

A router node please :) Currently you can place nodes up to 9 steps away from the nearest net connection. A lvl 1-7 router could increase this to 10, lvl 8-14 router increase it to 11, lvl 15-20 router pumps the max distance to 12, and finally a maxed lvl 21 gets it to 13 steps deep. Placed anywher...

Re: Sentry reactivity time

I have had the same thought here. My three turrets' antivirus attacks different. Two turrets shoot antivirus at the same time while the third waits an additional half second or so. What could be the problem? I have a theory on why! When the node gets the antivirus, THATS when their attack timer is ...

Re: New meta? Portal+worms is road to success

I have been recently hacking with the same program group you can see on the video, and mostly I do not use much of it. Sometimes I only need access, portal and worms; but mostly I need one wraith, 2-4 shurikens, and few beam canons too. I guess that is too easy, guys should start upgrading their sc...

Re: Security Node Investment Priorties

I'm getting ready to defend against the lvl15+ beamers out there so I'm curious about some specific power spikes. At what level code gate do beams generally take too long to break through? Also, is stealth still used (aside from wraithing the first two gates) and what level scanner would generally ...

Re: Defending against Krakens with core inside network?

Is it necessary to upgrade the 2nd Mixer? Or is just 1 enough to hold the b-coins for program upgrades? After all it's a pretty good choke point with 3 program slots and 4 connection ports. You only really need more than one mixer once you start researching high level programs (like 100k+ bcoins). ...

Re: Security Node Investment Priorties

Added As Legal points out in the discussion below. A even quicker route to cope with people at current levels. Is to level Core as quickly as possible. Along with probably Sentry, Scanner and Gates. As stated, this guide is a little more generic, it doesn't take into account different Network design...

Re: Security Node Investment Priorties

I actually kind of agree with this but at this point in the game only way to catch up to people I would say is to push core levels. The faster that core is up the more nodes you get and the more nodes you get the more you can spread your network out. Although I do agree with alot of what you said, ...

Re: Node lost with protector on it

So I was just hacking someone and I put an ICE wall, protector and blaster on a scanner choke point. However, as soon as the ICE wall went down I lost the node even with the protector having been enabled. Has anyone else had this issue? Yes it's a known bug. Ether remove the ice wall as soon as pro...
