If it takes up a slot, I don't see why not. The nation being hacked can still pursue the hackers if caught, etc, so it's not like there are zero consequences for the spy roll. [b]The only issue that people could claim is similar to the "terrorist" in that the nation itself can't receive consequences.[/b]

Actually, they can DoW on the offending country by using the CB of, [quote]replacing the "incompetent" government with a more "competent" one [i]peacefully[/i][/quote]. See GLP-USA War.

USA and their masses of allies DoWed on GLP even though they clearly knew the terrorist organization that arranged the attacks [i]wanted[/i] both sides to murder each other.

Maybe, it depends on answers to the following questions

Are your citizen hackers filling your spy slots?
Do citizen hackers constitute the entirety of your intelligence agencies?
What percentages of your spy slots do citizen hackers currently occupy?
Do citizen hackers have regular access to intelligence infrastructure, both improvements and/or wonders?
[/quote]

Because hackers can only succeed if they have access to government intelligence systems? If only that were true...

Also if hackers are part of spy slots other intelligence operatives must removed for the duration.

Cite me a rule or precedent where it says your ig intelligence infrastructure is limiting to ic spy operations and ig spies carry over to ic fully?

I cite separations of soldiers and civilians as precedent.

That hardly fits the situation and even if it did would support my point more as Intelligence agents tend to be part of a civilian institution and thus is common sense and not ig.

Each nation has only two slots to use for spy rolls.

Can you request a spy roll for non-government actions? :blink:

Either way it should still consume one of Triyun's spy slots.

No one is saying otherwise.

It has been allowed several times. (terrorist groups) It depends on how you look at the nation itself. A hard core nation rper would say no, because we are rping 'nations'. A character Rper would be ambivalent as their focus isn't on some technical ic legal sanction but on the thoughts and motivations of various characters, a hybrid such as myself would include the population in the 'nation'. Of course personally I would probably connect it to my government through some sort of manipulation, but I don't think that is required.

And yes it should be deducted from one of triyun's two daily spy rolls but I don't think anyone is disputing that.

The reason why it consumes those rolls is you are doing something in someone else's nation without their permission which requires a roll. The only exception to this is a guerrilla war which is not governed by spy rolls but which can only take place following a conventional war, and only if there has been no break in continuity (an activity wipe, an extended stint of time between collapse and the beginning of the insurgency, with no reasonable explanation, or the establishment of another nation).

It has, insurgency is and should be conducted without spy rolls.
