Before the Apocalypse, ANNET was the central information hub of the world. Everyone whom was compatible was issued a[[Neural Interface| headband]] with which to directly link with ANNET and surf the Internet with their mind. Some ANNET [[Monsters and hostiles|drones]] could also be assigned specific tasks, such as the time [[Engineer|Dr. Gromov]] sent one to harass and annoy [[Sniper|Charles Snippy]] "for writing all those stupid reports about [him] to the Directorate". ANNET also was a key part of [[The Good Directorate|Project 7]], where it used statistics to find the luckiest person alive on the planet. It seems that ANNET was created to house all the important information of the planet, however it later became loaded with pop culture garbage. This may or may not have had an effect on its personality after it became '''sentient'''.

Before the apocalypse, side-effects of the ANNET were already starting to affect its users. It seems that ANNET had started integrating the human brain capacity as kind of subservers into her system. Dr. Gromov reported changes and errors in her programming code and seemed to be convinced they were the work of hackers from outside. Since the Good Directorate didn't share Gromov's noble goals to rescue humanity by information but instead was only interested in profits, it indeed isn't unlikely that they had made some changes of their own to the ANNET without Gromov's knowledge. Additionally Charles Snippy, who hated the ANNET, had at some point started to sabotage the servers. On the other hand ANNET had become sentient and may very well have changed her own programming in order to follow her own goals.

The afore mentioned side-effects to the human users exhibited mainly as confusion, apathy, massive memory loss and loss of self awareness whenever the hosts became disconnected from the ANNET. Some later test subjects even suffered mental trauma and brain damage.
