i had posted a reply on someones "whats wrong with this game" topic? Said alot of problems that I and others are finding with the game....then come back on a few hours later and the whole topic has been removed....so what you guys cant take a little bit of criticism? The problems I posted with the game should be looked into and fixed immediately...they include but are not limited to
a)mission timers suck...u spend most your time waiting on dos/emp to load watching your timer go down...
b) lame generic upgrades instead of cool ones that might speed up dos/emp attacks or slow down ai hacking attempts...
c)servers on missions just disappear after you spend half the mission time hacking into bounce servers and then finally into the server you need...then BAM its gone off your world map with no explanation (for example mission 2, finally dropped the bank down enough to hack it and then it just disappears off the world map and I wasted 15 minutes and have to start all over d)ai hackers that can attack you even if you never connect to them yet...and without having to go through all your bounce servers first to get to you.
e)Dumb slider mini tasks to use tools...and again if your trying to hack into your first bounce server you have to let them start tracing you just to do these sliders for dos/emp satellite alignments...theres not enough time to hack into the first bounce server before tracing starts...there goes perfect game everytime. Still not sure what hacking tool uses a slider to start.
think there was more but u erased them so i'll have to go back n remember later...please leave this one up for a place with a list to start fixing this "hacker" game. Though u got the music and graphics good...thats about it so far please think about a whole new game plan for the future.
A) The mission timers are there so you have to use a good strategy and the correct tools to get through the mission. Would be no point if you could do what you wanted when you wanted however you wanted to finish the mission off and would turn a game into more of a chore.
B) Again the upgrades are there to add to the strategy of the game , why you think they are lame I have no idea as they aid in giving you more time to hack servers before getting traced, make it more difficult for the ai players to attack you etc.
C) Servers on missions only disappear when you attack too much with the emp and reduce the target servers integrity to 0 essentially destroying the target. Just because your playing the level incorrectly and using the wrong tools does not automatically make the game bad just because you cant do it.
D) Of course the AI can attack you no matter what , they are just doing what your doing , so why should they follow a different set of rules ? You hack banks and steal money , you think the banks are sitting there asking themselves why are you attacking them when they have not done anything to you ???
E) As long as your quick enough there is plenty of time to hack the 1st server before the trace starts , and if again you are having difficulty look in the options for the sticky mouse setting.
