Virus miniing
#1
What is virus mining? I think it's when a very large cel is making and eaten viruses at the same time. Usually done at the edge or corner of the map. Correct me if I am wrong.

I have never heard that, I think what you described is called fast virus farming.

    Thank you Redfox, fast virus mining is what I mean. What is it?

When the kids sprout off just the next meaningless term about some new 'trick' they do, I just pay no attention, lol. But just the same, I have not heard of this being used either, that I can recall. Sometimes one kid just has to give something a name, y' know? So they feel like they're "one of the gang", and they invented something. (When actually, the exact same thing has one mainstream 'name', and 3 other minor ones already! lol)

I would hazard my guess that it means that detestable practice of using a virus as a mine, and dropping it riiiiiight in front of the dude you are chasing, so he can't help but hit it, and splitting to gleefully eat his bits.

Make it worth the price we pay!
All your life you've been waiting for your chance,
Pray you'll fit into the Plan.
But you're the master of your own destiny,
So give and take the best that you can!

   Detestable? How detestable is this practice? As it is used by me and others have used that strategy on myself. I think it can be annoying having someone you almost destroyed chase you with their one shot virus aiming at you, but it is usually a revenge tactic. I only consider it part of the game. Chasing someone who has "wronged me" helps with my accuracy and timing. Being chased by someone like Samira is almost sure death for me as she has so much more tools in her toolbox to deal with the likes of myself.

Uhm again I also have not heard of that one. But again, you described fast virus farming. A mechanic  of the Solo AGF server. People make and eat viruses at the same time. By eating the viruses they make, they get insane amounts of mass in no time. In most cases one can become number one of the leaderboard by using this mechanic. In seconds.

   Yes I did get off topic with squirrel, but what you describe is the definition I was looking for. Fast virus farming is what I will call this from now on. 
   There has to be more to it than you describe. If I were to attempt fast virus farming I could forsee my demise rather than getting large very quickly. ( I'm new to Agma).

lol! Well, I don't like it, because I don't like anyone using powerups on me, but mostly I said it tongue-in-cheek.

But yeah, as a revenge tool, it sounds much better! It would wipe the discontent off your face, and put it on their face instead! Big Grin

It really depends on the server, you can do it with like 400 mass in virus farms.

     You know shooting a virus at someone and crashing into the virus you just shot from, regrouping then launching the new virus at your enemy is one of the first strategies I've used in this game. Many others have used this strategy against myself and the pros get results with this strategy. Yet I don't know if it has a name. Seems important enough to be given a name.
