Here are a couple of my thoughts on some updates that would be awesome to see:
1. Being able to choose how many credits go towards speeding up nodes/programs. I don't always want to complete the upgrade and use a good chunk of my credits. An application of this is if you have 9Sec protection and going to expire in day. You choose speed up your upgrades only to the point where they will be completed before your protection runs out. I think this will lead to a lot more happy hackers.
2. When an AI is max lvl, being able to start unlocking and upgrading new "versions" of the AI. Two examples: For the AI Hawk I was thinking something along the lines of a Phoenix. Its still keeping with the Hawk type feel. When it hits an opponent controlled node, it damages it as well as creates a passive "burn" effect on a node. With resurrection being something that a Phoenix is known for, I would also include a timed buff for each time the Phoenix node(AI Hawk) is taken back and "resurrects". The time and strength of the buff would increase with level.
During an attack on someone else's network, the resurrection ability comes into play when the node the Phoenix installed on getting taken back by the opponent. You would have a short time ( a few seconds) to take back the node and the Phoenix reinstalls itself on the node. As you upgrade the Phoenix, the time you have to take back the node increases(not very much) and the times that it can resurrect increases( at max 3-4 times). I think the damage would have to be lower than the original AI Hawk due to passive "burn" ability.
Another example: For the AI Beetle I was thinking along the lines of a Hercules Beetle. During a defense on your network it would only be able to repair Code Gate strength and Guardian shields. During an attack that you initiate, it would repair Ice Walls and Protectors.
You would only be able to have 1 "version" of each AI node out. That means you cant have a Hawk and a Phoenix out at the same time. You would be able to choose which one you have out given that that you revived the one you currently are using.
Still thinking on options for the AI Squid...
This allows for more personalization of a network.
P.S. I still think there should be some sort of ability with the Squid in conjunction with the Kraken.
Thoughts and ideas of improvement or modification are welcomed.
Rules, news and updates
