gateway upgrades actually lowers your power rank score from what I have seen. Unless that has been changed especially since it was discussed in length previously when people were trying to figure out the power ranking.

Also for some reason as I showed in R1 if you move the software from 1 server to another and delete it on the original server your score will drop as well.

I have also noticed that my score is WAY lower than it should be most likely caused by the fact that I don't have any software on my first server other than a sniffer daemon trap ;)

Gateway upgrades increase your power. Certain of it :-)

Not 100% sure about moving software but I remember you discussing it in R1 already..

You can always send a forum message to Sir Emi and he will answer it asap.

Gateway upgrades doesn't increase your power, nor does it lower it.

It addes the same amount of power as it costs to upgrade.

unless you have gold, than since you get 20% discount on hardware, it does give you a 20% increase of power over hpd.

Checked and verified.  So that is an exploitable bug.  Perhaps Titam should add in a IF statement to handle the Gold calculation in order to maintain a level playing field with regards to the power rank.

Of course being that most of the Top10 are Gold I can imagine they will most likely NOT want this to happen.  I personally don't care as being gold should NOT give an artificial boost on the Power Rank IMO.

Yeah, any reason is useful when you don't know how to play 1 I'm not gold either, but I don't have any problems with that ...

Well that is because you are pro-revelations according to the grape-vine ;)

I did indeed intend to install revelation. But at that time there wasen't 10 players who wanted because they didn't want to start all over again.

Now i want some updates before doing anything.
