I've recently found some un-trafficked areas with unclaimed portals, and was able to capture them at my leisure. However it occurred to me while I was doing so that I didn't know in what order to go about capturing them to best advantage. Because they were off the beaten track, I was particularly concerned about receiving keys while I was there.
Baring considerations such as time and disturbances from the other faction, would it be more advantages four me to have:
- Hack the portal a couple times first, then claim it by placing resonators.
- Claim the portal with at least one resonator, hack it, and go back and forth.
- Claim the portal and fully power it up before hacking the first time.
- Claim all the portals in the area, fully power them up and establish any possible links before hacking the first time.
When initially claiming a portal, are there any strategies to have a better chance of walking away with keys when you're done?
