  • I have a situation where multiple sub's approaching my property guarded by sentry.Its hammering the sub with 6d while the 20d is approaching in a big style without loses.

    Any explanation for this phenomenon most indeed very kindly appreciated.

  • Sentries kill 5% of all subs on board right? That's a single shot. However, it's hidden Mechanic is that and sub when 1-20 drills on it will only lose a single drill to the sentry.

  • The sentry will target subs in a way that maximizes losses to the player whose subs are being targetted I though.

    So mathematically when it is all said and done the sentry is tracking the entire set of subs in it's range and judging how best to inflict damage based on the current projections. Maybe?

  • I wrote the FAQ for a reason guys...
    If the Sentry would kill the same amount of subs when he hits two different subs, he always chooses the one closer to himself.
    Imagine how stupid the average person is. Then realize that half of the people are even stupider than that.

  • oh yeah it makes sense now both nivero's & radio's answers cleared it.

    So 20d will lose single drilee same as the 6d sub.But the 6d sub was closer so thats why became priority.Thats smart i like it.

    Thanks again for explanatio.
