I think he meant account level 7, and you meant core level 7 :D quite a difference there

Ujnex, your base is weak to hybrid attacks, the defensive structures are only 4 nodes away from your net connection. Easy picking for someone with a few wraiths and access, or even just a portal to the second code wall.

However, I recently discovered that even a lv 5 scanner can't prevent a level 1 access from reaching 7 nodes deep, so for now it probably doesn't matter all that much. Thinking about it, stealth attacks are actually over powered at mid ranks, the only upside is that you get an extra 10% on scanner upgrade compared to the access program which receives 3%, at least for the first level. It's really poorly implemented and balanced unfortunately. Hopefully you wont have too much trouble with it as not many people realise how cost effective it is at the 20's range.

Access was nerfed last 2 patches ago. A lvl 5 scanner would smoke lvl 1 access. Either your placement with scanner isn't right or your resources are not at your 9th node jump.

Mid ranks are a weird area anyway. Almost all hack types are effective. Don't sit on any nest eggs. No base is impenetrable in that rage.

The scanner covers nodes 1 thru 7 on my network, resources are at 9th. Like i say access nodes are really imbalanced. Ideally they would start weaker at lower levels and get an additional - 2 to 3 visibility per level. Right now, once you get to lvl 9 or so scanner you would squash access attacks up to lvl 10 perhaps even higher, like i said before the scanner is gaining 10% detection when access is dropping 3% visibility. By the time access reaches 50% of it's starting value, the scanner will be at 250 - 300%
