If you're not familiar with Stealth attacks, I just give you one advice : Don't "ever" use Access on a non-disabled CodeGate if a Scanner is in range
The reason is simple : When you do so, instead of only taking 1 sec to install, it will take 5 sec (or something close to that). The reason is because it's a CodeGate, it's a filter as the description says. So the amount of visibility raises a lot during those 5 seconds (it is 150*1.6*5
Second advice : If you plan on continuing the Stealth attack beyond a CodeGate, don't
use your Wraith and Access hacks at the same time
. Since the CodeGate isn't yet disabled, your Access will take 5 seconds to get through the Gate (+4 sec it took for the Wraith to go in action). Note that Access doesn't disable the node (aka takes longer to get through during your hack)
So in your maths, you need to do this for every node :
- whenever you will use Wraith, it takes 3-4 sec.
- *almost* whenever you use Access, it takes 1 sec.
- if you face a CodeGate and only use Access, it takes 5sec.
Sorry too late to do the maths again but you get what I mean. Also thanks for the reply.
And to give you a quick hint : On your network (the most recent attack), I was at a visibility of ~3450/3600 to get to disable your furthest Sentry. If you had moved your Scanner to a different place, I would have had more trouble.
EDIT : Idk about the amount of time it takes to install portal. But Data Leech is 1 second. Though it adds ~20 visibility/sec if you use it during the stealth phase.
