This post is another puzzle. The puzzle builds on the previous one that can be found in
if you haven’t done it you should do that one first because the solution is helpful for this challenge. The resources are still the same for the attacker with 4 cores and 8 bits.
The puzzle of this week is titled MVP filter. For each of the two scenarios there are two questions.
If you would be the attacker and had the ability to remove a single filter and then attack, which filter would you remove, and how would you then attack to maximize core damage. In other words: what is the current MVP filter of the defending structure?
If you would be the defender and you could add one filter before you are being attacked. What filter placement would minimize the worst-case attacking scenario, and what would that scenario be? In other words: what would be the MVP Filter placement?
If 4 questions is too many for you, you can pick your favorite question and try that first.
Good luck to all of you!
