Defence against shocker?

Post by Sibernetika » Thu Mar 09, 2017 7:11 am

How does one defend against a shocker and beam attack?.. Maybe I'm missing something in my defence line.. I just find it extremely annoying when someone beams through my network drops a shocker at my choke point and beams my turrets down before the shocker even wore off and the again at my 2nd choke point.. Never even needed to use an ice wall.. So to my original question how does one defend against it other than have a level 21 sentry that might drop a level 1 scanner choke point in less than 0.5 secs of getting captured

Well, your biggest defense against shocker is making them either choose to ice wall first or lose 1 second because of the node being taken back instantly.

Your second biggest defense is to make them have to use multiple shockers on the same node to take over the surrounding nodes (code gates)

Other than that...shocker is expensive and strong for a reason I guess

Shocker is designed to negate base defense damage and maximize attacker's damage.
If you design your base so that it can tank damage (gate, core/black ice with guardian shields) then shocker ends up being useless.

Shocker is a hard counter to black ice (in terms of stopping black ice from launching a single attack) so don't put all 3 of your black ices at one node in hopes that they will take back the node.

That will be of no use.. I realised what's happening.. Its the trolls that was hunting at the bottom of the rep ladder thats finally moving up since the update and with them comes level 10 shockers and and level 16+ beams that can rape my code gates and defenses before the shock effect even wears off
