We provide an analytic theory to explain Anghel 's recent numerical finding whereby a maximum in the global performance emerges for a sparsely connected competitive population [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO 92, 058701 (2004)]. We show that the effect originates in the highly correlated dynamics of strategy choice, and can be significantly enhanced using a simple modification to the model.
