To casual because how much it costs for me to hack people.. After running into higher level scanners I started upgrading my stealth again, and man did that cost me it now costs over 3k bitcoin just to hack someone with a 22min wait time between hacks.. With the way things are going I might just log in every day to collect credits on the world map to keep my credit level up to constantly afford 9sec security.. I'm not giving up on the game, I'm sticking it to see where its going but for now my steam train burns a ton of coal and travels almost nowhere

Access 10
Wraith 5
Portal 4

And that's only to get past 3 gates and maybe drop a portal, if I was fast enough and the scanner didn't have extra moving parts, otherwise the portal fails, and if there is 4 gates well then I'm just wraithing 4 gates I still need to upgrade my stealth further if I want to get past a level 13 scanner and drop a portal

Soo after several hours pf playing today due to stupid compilation times I was close I was getting there, my sentry was going to see level 18 baby 8-) but alas some (insert extremely offensive word(s) worth a warning or here) hacked me while I was waiting for another 23min compile duration to finish, 2mil moola gone... Sigh.. Oh look 9sec is off cool down, guess I will be playing the mining game again.

Wouldn't it be fast to just instant compile 10 times instead of using 9sec?

Yes it would be but, but that would require 10 good wins as well with the high costs of my compiles, if I lose two hacks are the bitcoin gain was low then that will affect my compile ability and I would have to wait for my mines to catch up, 250 for 9 sec is much cheaper than purchasing 10% b coin

I've had the same problem last week. I was focusing on offensive programs and nodes, my defences and mines were left behind. Had the problem when I started using portal attacks. I was forced to upgrade defences. I can defend them now but I have to sacrifice my core to insure my database and mixer are not looted. But I'm still on lower 20s...

Sibernetika, you've been here for more than 6 months, yet are still somewhere between level 30 and 40... and you considered yourself super interested and dedicated in the game?!?

Stealth will only become more expensive and take longer to compile. You should know this from Vnasty's epic failure.

47 actually.. If the meta is brute force all the way then that is rather boring isn't it.. I should do like every else and put all my codegates in a row keep everything low level and just concentrate on beams and sentry.. As long as brute force works fine then all should be fine and dandy.. Heck knows there will be a huge backlash if beams and shocker get the same treatment as access and wraith
