Black Nodes

Postby v_i_o_l_a_t_e_u » Thu Nov 09, 2017 3:53 am

I was hacked recently by a lower level (28) player. When I retraced him man he looked stronger than most 40-50 ish players. His sentries well in the double digit levels. Also I noticed all of his other defense nodes were all blacked out. What does this mean ? I'm sure I can port in and get his res. I just wanna know why over half his nodes are black.

It is nothing mysterious at all. Turrets and black ice are always blacked out since the beginning, on any network. It means the sentry has to only send them a single packet to make them antivirus protected, and spread the antivirus further. Having said that, it is not logical to keep more than one upgraded sentry. It is better to keep one upgraded, and two others to spread the antivirus quickly. This works since the higher level sentry over writes the lower one.
Also, it looks you have run into a min-max network. To know more about min-maxing, read the wiki.
