Re: I overleveled with farms and mines, HALP

Your first two gates can be Wraithed with level 1 stealth, completely negating all the money you put into upgrading them. Or your first gate and your Sentry can be Wraithed with level 4 stealth. You're not being hit by stealth because stealth is expensive, takes a long time to compile, and people do...

Re: What does the Sentry Strength DPS on the Wiki mean?

Antivirus pulses are sent every 1 second, so the DPS statistic is damage per second and also damage per pulse. Pulses are additive. 3 nodes sending AV to the same neighbor will capture the neighbor 3 times faster than if there was just one node sending AV. Also note the scaling as you upgrade nodes ...

Re: How do players have insane high beam cannons?

Beam 11 at level 48 is considered severely under-leveled by those of us "in the know," but it's pretty normal that people who don't do some research on the game don't upgrade their programs as much as "we" think they should. The short version is people did testing and made spreadsheets in the first ...

Re: Breaking a choke point

I guess nobody is answering this because the question is too open-ended. There are many different kinds of choke points and the surrounding network also effects what the most optimal way to break a particular choke will be. Plus you might not have upgraded the right programs to break the choke in th...

Re: Breaking a choke point

So nobody's going to make a serious reply? EDIT 12/31/17: tl;dr: Keeps Walls at low level and upgrade either your Protector or your Shocker. Use up to 3 Walls to install a Protector. Don't use Shocker and Protector on the same node. Using high level walls as your main defensive program is so cost-in...

Re: Black Nodes

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 pursui...

Re: 8 Nov 2017 - a day that TricksterArts put a bomb to blow Minmaxers XD

Hmm, let's see... rep climbing is all about hacking as frequently as possible while minimizing the frequency you're hacked, yourself. Since the previous search algorithm only showed people within a certain level range of yourself, optimizing the frequency you can hack had the biggest impact on how m...
