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.

Thanks

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.

Quotes send a notification. I don't personally get notifications when someone leaves a new post in a topic I'm part of though - so if Gravemind got a notification, there's probably a setting for that. :D
There are 10 types of people in the world. Those that can read binary, and those that cant.

Okay, yeah I guessed this belonged in General Discussion instead. Great that the quote works, lol. I also don't know if OP meant that all his nodes are black because they're level 1...

Minmaxing is when you upgrade only certain things to maximize your effectiveness in the pursuit of certain goals while simultaneously keeping your level as low as possible. An overly generic definition, since almost all minmaxer's goal is "to climb rep."

Examples:
iblitxkreig minmaxed in the pursuit of reputation
Zavok minmaxed in the pursuit of farming
I (almost) minmaxed in the pursuit of Core 12
