Hacking and bypassing defence drones

Postby jaimon » Sun Aug 04, 2019 8:17 am

What do you think of the tactic where you disable hacking to bypass a defence drone? For me it kinda feels like an exploit. I defeated the flagship on normal with it and I kinda feel guilty for using it. But if not for that I would not buy hacking unless I have defence scrambler, or flak to distract the drone, or at least strong weapons (or a good bomb) to disable the drone bay. Because it is expensive. But with bypassing drones hacking is always good to buy. It doesn't even need a synergy. Like if you see hacking in a store you almost always should buy it because defence drones are not a problem with that tactic. It can drop any shields. And one drone part per ship is not a problem unlike with missiles.

It just seems that originally it was made so that defence drones are a weakness of hacking and compensate its strength but with that tactic it's no longer a problem. The developer said that they didn't think of this when they added hacking to the game.https://myip.kim https://birthdaywishes.onl https://elecpay.in/tneb


I had an idea to not use this tactic in game so that it is more fair. But then I'd have to consider that hacking won't work against some ships and flagship's stage 2, or look for defence scrambler or flaks. Do you think it would be a good idea to consider the drone bypass an exploit and deliberately not use this? It looks broken.

Do you think it would better if the game was rebalanced so that depowering hacking won't work against defence drones?

I think it's a total, complete exploit and will not do it.
