How to combat min/maxers

Post by Sibernetika » Wed May 10, 2017 8:07 am

This is a game set in a cyber world where we are hacking other peoples computers, so if your systems are weak it should be easier to comprise whole systems.. Min maxers likes to keep nodes very low level but sentry a beast just to keep their level low as possible but difficult to hack, how about adding ddos attacks for people with levels too low at the level that they are could be like a instant portal all very low level nodes will be instant capture.. Yes that will make choke points with a level 1 node null and void but it will also make other min/maxer bases sitting at level 38 with level 21 sentries and level 1 everything else null and void.. Again this will have to scale to level if you were to use this at a low level it wouldn't work, nor would this be available at a low level

Well that or force more restrictive requirements on upgrading the core like this percentage of your current nodes should be this level or higher

I actually imagine that's what Stealth was originally designed for, to combat bases with a single point of failure. But instead, it's the opposite, because stealth is underpowered as soon as someone gets Scanner 10 and is completely useless until like level 21, then becomes overpowered enough to disable an entire network. I feel stealth could be redesigned to combat this perhaps.

instead of going : mines must be more upgraded, they should write, to upgrade turret upgrade to core level x

Remember, the whole point of the game is strategy. If everyone can only do the same thing, then there is no strategy involved. Instead, buff things that are weak in a way that they are an equally valid strategy, as opposed to nerfing things until everyone goes on the same path.

That's how things are now. And what you get is lvl 12 core with lvl 21 sentry and scanner and everything else at lvl1

I agree but some how people have different strategy of attack...
Many people use same program quantities for each hack
And thats why they fail frequently and the guys with low level nodes and high level sentry ??
Why are they playing this game because the mission of game is to upgrade nodes and core...
So why are they hacking other players for resources ?? They are not upgrading nodes but what they want to upgrade :D
Keep Calm & Download Core ;)

Shocker, protector and shurikens. Av have a 1.5s install time. Min maxers are by no means invulnerable, the only thing broken being someone could be at level 50 with irrelevant programs. Imagine a casual player vs a bad player, same thing. People are also inexperienced and mess up more than they should. The game is indeed unbalanced, but eventually someone will find a meta and people will start copying it, as much as you can try to balance the game out.
