Impossible to hack with 3 Turrets & lvl 1 Scanner?

Postby Doublev » Tue Apr 11, 2017 10:04 am

Only 2 Turrets at lvl 8 (and 1 Black-ice) connect to lvl 1 Scanner, I can not install Ice-wall with only 0.5s install-time??? Can it be?

You can install icewall within the time allotted. The defenses have a delay before attacking. Otherwise the game would be impossible ;)

It's not impossible but it's near impossible if you're timing is of by less than half a second then you are pretty much screwed till you can get the timing right.. If those turrets have a strong sentry connected to them it goes from a pain to pretty much look for another target

With those tricky choke points, that players try to exploit. Using lvl 1 nodes. I spam ice wall, yes even sometimes 3... then ill use a protector, then as the icewall breaks ill load beams. Before the last beam il shocker and spam beams and re apply shockers and refresh beams as needed
...

Is this efficient? Prob not, depends on how bad you want the network hack. I have yet to see a single. Base in game from lvl 1-80 that's unhackable

With the right set up no base is 100% secure. But maybe you don't have the disk space or program lvls to penetrate.

Solution? Hack another network.

Resolved happy hacking

With a level 1 scanner I will still try my luck, but with a level 1 database and a gold sentry I skip to another target

Db have more hp than scanner. Both get insta cap anyway but it's not much different

Unless its a maxed out sentry, you can still spam ice walls and "catch it" then protector, beam shocker beam. It's not 100% secure it's hackable if you time it and burn resources. If any latency you have to re spam ice walls and start over. It's more annoying than difficult.

If there is a level 1 database there is a level 1 scanner as well butbthe database tends to have black ice connected to iti have had a node that had ice wall, Protector and used a shocker to biy some time and it was instantly recaptured when those black ice projectiles made contact

You need more ice walls. Have 3 on node.. watch the black ice.. after it send a purple beam. Then protector. Takes some practice. As long as I have an abundance of ice walla loaded I can take any lvl 1 choke, overall tho unless they have a ton of resources your better off looking for an easier target. Late game this strategy is not optimal. Its huge early game. Most players struggle on these but if you time it right. You can break them.
