Leveling

Post by Eroseus » Tue Dec 06, 2016 4:57 am

I see people that have way higher lvl core, viruses, and defenses but still are the same lvl as me. Why are they so high in everything but still be low lvl?

Your network level increases when you upgrade nodes and also when you upgrade programs. People who rush their Core (and Sentries for the stronger antivirus) usually have other lower than average level nodes, and have only upgraded a few programs, usually Beam Cannon and Ice Wall.
There are 10 types of people in the world. Those that can read binary, and those that cant.

Thanks for your reply but I'm not following you. No way am I rushing anything - especially the Core. I see many players MY LEVEL or LOWER with HIGHER LEVEL of basically everything and in some instances more of it. I agree that basically I buy/upgrade anything and I LEVEL UP - way too fast it appears. Is there a hack? What is the strategy so that you don't level up too fast?

And just so it's clear - my Core is the last thing I level up. I ONLY level it up when everything else in my network NEEDS a higher level Core. Repeat - WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE in my NETWORK needs a HIGHER level Core. Is that my problem? Any help in this would be most appreciated as this is hell as frustrating.

I'm implying that other people may have rushed their core and sentries, not yourself :)

Maybe it's cause you chose to level up your collectors as well. Likely that other people chose to not level up their collectors at all or very little and instead focus all their resources on core, defenses, storage and programs

@Hackercritic: I see where you are coming from. The collectors I do need to max out so that I can have enough storage space to build up my Core, network defenses, and hacking tools. However based on what you said, I probably don't need to max out my currency producers — the B-Coin mine and Server farms. I'll stop upgrading those and see how that works out for me. Thank you for the help. 8-) :D ;)

What I meant by collectors was the b-coins and server farms, storages are well.... The b-coins and gold storage, but yeah.

You can very well manipulate your level by how you choose to upgrade your network. Kind of a secret to the game, I don't need to discuss much more without giving it all away. Kind of a game hack.
