Also at the moment I have 100 slots available. I dont need to fully use 100 slots of viruses to successfully hack others. I usually need about an average of 75-82 to get the job done. While I am attacking,[b] I premake the viruses that take a lot of time which shaves off 3 minutes.
Have to agree with this. People are over training. I'm level 28, so I'm mainly attacking bases between levels 21-26. All it takes is 2 Blasters, 4 Ice Walls and on average 30 Cannons. Whereas I can train 4 Blasters, 8 Ice Walls and 50 Cannons in about 20 mins. So I'm basically training an attack in about 10 minutes, actually less because the other half of my attack is training in the background. This is with 2 compilers and 90 program spaces.
If I need 2 Krakens I drop the Blasters, since Krakens eat through Code Gates. So having Krakens only adds 4 mins to the training time.
Wraiths are high end programs, I wouldn't even think to use one unless attacking someone 20 levels above me. But since I can farm all the low hanging fruit at level 21-26 and get 60k a pop. I normally don't even bother with them.
Add to that people are just making stupid attacks. I can't defend against Krakens yet, so I have my core next to a Net Connector. Yet I still see people attack me with 3 Krakens. 24mins of training time, when 1 Cannon would have done the job....crazy.
And don't get me started on people who attack only my core, leave a message and then log off with 300k plus (90k-100k profit) sitting in their Database.
I've only had about 6 people beat my base in the 3 weeks I've been playing (Resources and Core). All of them only used Blasters, Ice Walls and Cannons. Apart from one guy who used Access and Leechs, when I foolishly had both scanners upgrading at the same time.
I can't see me complaining about training times for a long time.
The only program I would have an issue with is Manic. 30mins is way too long. But having said that it looks a completely OP virus, so maybe that isn't a bad thing.
