1. Perseverance has a farm alt... not a minmaxing smurf... I don't see why you included him as an example of players that will become #1 using a minmaxing smurf.
Sorry it was Nekostratia not perserverance. He was the one answering some questions in that topic and I mixed them both up.

To my knowledge, I'm the only player to have ever reached the top and successfully hold it without using those two exploits, but I could be wrong, as I started playing mid January and can only testify for anything after that. (btw by "hold it" I mean, that ever since I became #1, I've stayed at the top despite my rep fluctuating a lot, simply because of the large rep gap between me and the 2nd place player)
I thought minmaxer was a new thing.
Here was my train of thought...
He might have to upgrade some other bits here and there until he hits the sweet spot of being able to easily hack most players on his search while keeping his lvl to minimum. I guess that's where the term "minmaxer" came from? Things would be fun for him until other players start doing the same then we will have a search pool in the game where a lot of people are minmaxers.
But it seems this has already happened.
I wonder what the search pool of that lvl 100 guy looks like...
