I am quite new to this game and i hope there will be a mode where you could test your own base with programs(won,t cost any bit-coin and you can choose their level,also inf slot ofc)
From what i know,in the end game,upgrading defense seems pointless because attackers always win(for example,lv 21 scanner is useless aginest lv 21 access)so this game could make new nodes(like something that has two node range and halves the shock time when being shocked)sorry for bad english.that's all i could have thought.(sorry for bad english since it's not my native language)
Anything related to Hackers that doesn't fit in another forum
That's a bad example, because stealth is actually strongest earlier in the game than later at endgame. A better example woulda been the Ram 21 vs Gate 21. At level 1, it takes four hits to take down a level 1 Code Gate, but at level 21 it takes 3 hits to take down a level 21 Code Gate.
You'll be pleased to know the last content update added the AI nodes, one of which is the Hawk AI which has a reach of three steps and is immune to the Shocker program.
And don't worry about your English, it's not my native language either.
