I understand that deflection and seekers are required for defense, but should you have a large number of zone assault as well to actually reduce the number of bots that get through of theirs when they attack? Or should it all be piled into deflection/seekers when you have taken a territory?
Today January 10th from 6pm to Midnight Eastern Time and 3pm to 9pm Pacific Time, Richin109 (most nanobots in the US) and I (2nd most) will only be deploying offensive nanobots. We conferred and agreed we wanted to take a little break from constantly having to deploy defensive bots for fear of the other player either closing the gap between first and second (in his case) or widening the gap (in my case). So we decided to cease defensive deployments for a bit and instead get a chance to pummel our local enemies. Besides, he is going on a date and doesn't want to be constantly clicking "deploy" (oo-la-la! ). I cordially extend an invitation to anyone else who wants join in the attack frenzy (especially if you live near Richin109 !). Happy QONQRing! P.S. for Silver: If you can, it might be interesting to see if you can detect a dip in the growth rate of total nanobots in Florida and California during that time span.
It is interesting how the number of zones you control and the number of zones captured are generally somewhat inversely proportional to your total nanobot deployments. If you are constantly fighting for zones captured and how many zones you control, you won't have a very high bot count since your bots are constantly getting destroyed. For example Onyxshard has over 6000 zones captured and controls over 1000 which is more than anyone else in the game by a good bit. Yet he isn't even in the U.S. top twenty for total number of bots deployed. I on the other hand barely make it in the thousand zones captured club, yet I am fourth in the nation in bots deployed. I think I saw while perusing the leaderboards recently an extreme example, of someone who had both zones captured and controlled in the double digits, yet had several million total bots deployed. Now that my friends, is defense.
