Safemode regenerates upon degrade & reupgrade of controller

  • YP

    If you are at controller level 5 and exhaust all your safe modes, it appears that you can regenerate them by not upgrading your controller, thus degenerating it back down to 0, and then re-engaging upgrades.

    While some regeneration for safe modes may be desirable, this is probably not the intended way to do it.

  • Yeah, I've noticed a user in the room above me (says he's a fully automated bot) exploiting this tactic to remain invincible.  If it uses up its last safe mode, it intentionally allows the controller to downgrade so that it can re-upgrade it and gain a safe mode back.  

    It's apparently impossible to conquer the bot no matter how overwhelming my army is nor how many safe modes I'm willing to wait through.  Pretty frustrating.
