How do I keep the exodian blade alive on the AI homeworld?
« on: July 19, 2014, 02:16:05 AM »
We can forget sensor hacking the AI home command system and cloaking the blade since the blade for some reason is immune to cloaking. I also have a space docks right next to the AI homeworld with 80 engineers chucking in neizingul core scapegoats.

With cloaking it'd be way too easy :)

I believe the general question is the same as here: http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php?topic=16005.new;topicseen#new

Will be making some balance changes based on that, so that the once-you're-on-the-homeworld experience doesn't vary so widely based on how long it took since the repair started.

How the hug does anyone hack an AI Homeworld in the first place.. if you're in a position where you can do that you could as well simply destroy the homeworld. In fact destroying the homeworld would be much easier and faster. So to me hacking an AI Homeworld or any Core planet for that matter.. sounds unrealistic, silly and waste of time.

How/why would someone hack an AI Homeword?

if %diff%==max (

   set /A me=SadPanda

I'm guessing sabotage hacking to take down the fort-III, and iirc the sensor hacking can counter the planet-wide tachyon coverage, allowing sneak-up attacks that might otherwise die before they reached the target.

Other than that I don't recall a form of hacking that would make sense on an AI HW.

Though even those could be shooting your own foot off with a plasma cannon, if you'd already done a bunch of hacking.

Either way, no hacking on the AI HW itself is required for the exodian blade win :)
