New Update with Rep Rewards

Post by NekrosStratia » Mon Mar 06, 2017 10:42 pm

Am I reading this correctly?

I will get an extra 60 bit coins and 1800 cash for doing a full 100% hack.

Is this a joke?

I understand that at LOW level somehow if you were 900+ rep, this might be a nice LITTLE boost. But if that's not 2k bitcoins and 180,000 cash... I'm not gonna use 500-700 more bitcoins in programs (atleast) to take full control....

Actually, it's $1750 and 60c per full triangle, so a 100% attack would get 3x that. That's the good news. The bad news is you are still correct, at lvl 40+ that reward is meaningless and does absolutely nothing to solve the resource issues at high levels.

I have hung in there because I really enjoy this game. But if this is their idea of an effective solution to the difficulty of gaining resources at a high level, especially for those of us who didn't rush only sentries and blasters when farming was easy, then I think it is time for me to finally uninstall.

It is pretty low reputation for level 40+ though. Higher ranks have more interesting rewards.

I have 1098 rep and am in the top 9%.

Player ranked 137 in the entire game has 1249.

Player ranked 20 in the entire game has 1550.

So I disagree that 900 - 1250 is low for anyone lvl 40+. Seems at the very least a decent rep.

What rewards are you seeing at higher rep levels? Unless it starts to scale exponentially, I don't see how it could get much better.

Lets see in a week. Up until now people did not care about reputation that much.

I'm guessing once people start gathering reputation, it'd be easier to climb even higher.
Level 61
Rank: Veteran
Highest Rank Achieved: Elite

People did not care about rep?! Of course they do! Almost no one want this to have.

I agree that we'll definitely see some people climbing rep a bit because of the new system. HOWEVER, I would highly encourage you to simply post all the rewards somewhere, because as it stands now, it's DEFINITELY not worth it.

How can I get higher rep, I cant even hack anyone on my search results. My player level is still way to high for what I have compared to what I am seeing. C10 vs what I am seeing as Core 12s with 5 code gates and a max sentry. This little 180 bcoin bonus will do nothing for me if I cant even pass a hack.

900 is VERY high for lvl 40.
He definitely cared about his reputation up until now.

I just hit lv.40 and I have 500 rep, and most of it is from people who gave it to me on purpose. (One beam/access and quit)
Also, it could be hard to maintain high rep now, especially if there's incentives in, so I don't think we'll see the reputation going up much.

A suggestion would be make the reward a percentage of your looted resources, so maybe a bonus 20% for x rank.

I was honestly excited when I saw the new update hit, but I'm disappointed to see the puny $100 per triangle bonus.
It doesn't even cover a fraction of the search cost.

Edit: I also realized that missions are given based on reputations. (correct me if I'm wrong)
That means you know very well how good players should be at different reputation.
I'm getting almost impossible (with my current upgrades) missions, so it's really hard to believe a lv.40 should be at 1000+ rep.
