I mean to be honest bro you just have to play the game man. ive yet to purchase any credits. I haven't used any real money to play this game "YET" lol. but im lvl 18 with a lvl 6 core I got up to the kraken as far as programs are concerned. I have a guardian, 2 code gates lvl 3 or 4, 2 black ice, scanner everything and im only 5 lvls above you. its just patience man. like homie mentioned above if you haven't played this type of gaming style that's how it is. its patience. time is a factor. lol just gotta grind it out.

Something ive been noticing more and more when i play is when im attacking or trying to move the screen around for my next target node the screen likes to zoom in all the way, usually messing up loosing node and trying again while i contiue to rotate camera angle

There is only one thing that I'm not liking, the navigation.
What about switching the one finger and 2 finger swipe? Or a toggle in settings so one finger is locked to one axis, and we can fly around and zoom with two fingers?

Love the game. It's original, well thought-out, and it looks cool. I'm only level 10 atm, and haven't gotten my pawz on many warez as of yet, but there's one thing that bugs me.

When you've been hacked, the dastardly villian who did the deed can access a certian amount of funds that aren't in your network, that is, sums that you've placed into your bank. Not all, but a significant amount of your bank gets drained. This is unfair, particularly at lower levels when it can take days to amass the funds for a single upgrade. I can understand that any sums (cash or B) that are actually in your network are fair game. But I would assume that banked funds were either hard currancy or stored offsite in a secure location.

I'd like to see this mechanic either removed, or dumbed down significantly. 5 or 10 percent would be fair, but if I'm crunching these numbers correctly, it's more like 30 or 35. Way over the top for supposedly secured funds.

If the hackable wares are only 10%, then you would never get back the value of the b coins you spent in the programs in the hack. It's currently 30%. You'll see that it's fair.

We may be miscommunicating. I'm specifically referring to sums in your bank, not sums in your network. Sums in the network are fair game, of course. And contrary to your statement that returns don't equal the risks, I've pulled scores if not hundreds of B-coin off a single node. Well worth the expense.

My issue is, at 30% a hack, you could be destitute after only a few successful assaults. I've experienced that same scenario just recently.

Perhaps a compromise, bank sums could be invulnerable at low levels (below say, 5?), 10 to 15% loss up to 10 or 15, then 30 from there on out. Such a scheme would make it easier for beginning players to get on thier feet, while not penalizing them for having to log out from time to time.

Looting systems is not good. Most cash players (lvl 30-40+) just wrecks your base and loot almost 1/3 or your bank that you have been saving up. This needs to be fixed asap. One of the cases to is the same player looting your base over and over. What gives? You save up your resources for God knows how many attacks. Then this high level player just comes in, grabs 1/3 or the loot, if your lucky, another 30+ loots you again. This game will be over before anyone knew it existed. Balance the game before you ask for $$. It's not fair.

Don't like :

Pretty impossible stack enough resource to upgrade at some point.
Compilation time is tooo long... i bought 2 extra cores to support the authors, but i don't really want pay this game more.
Those 2 things are related considering you can't hack more often than 1 every 20 min if you don't buy credits
Probably the core should be more important... at some point everyone put it near the connection nodes because Kracken is unstoppable.
I would like to have more options to setup my defenses ... there isn't enough variety .
Sometime i feel like i playing a "payforwin" game...

Like:
The game is fun with a lot of potential, no idea about your cost and if you can handle non toxic freemium models.

Nice work.
