Ah crap. Im on holidays right now so i wont be able to fix it for a few weeks. Hopefully people will still get the right idea though on how the base works. It shouldnt be too hard to fix on your own.

Thanks anyway!

Can you let me know if this is a good design. I have had no hacks since I created this layout.

Tbh no, your just taking advantage of lined up gates which few have blaster at this level to break through.

Whoa whoa where's your gate?
At this level you don't need 3 sentries either.
Move the turrent to where back sentry is, remove that sentry and find your gate back.

Good job Fluffington,

I used your builds for level 3, 4 and 5, they were doing great. Your hard work is much appreciated.
Only very high level players managed to pass and a few of them also had some difficulties in passing.

Now, to help you and some of the new players out:

PLEASE NOTE that after 6, the plans for your Base can differ. These are my builds, the ones that I found working great, however, you may use any layout you'd prefer for your bases. I am sharing the builds so that other players can take advantage of them or use them as inspiration for their plans.

Core 6 Ideas
Max nodes: 22
Business nodes used (5): 1x server farm, 1x database, 2x b-coin mine, 1x b-coin mixer
Security nodes used (9): 2x sentry, 3x turret, 2x black ICE, 2x code gate, 2x scanner, 1x guardian
Hacking nodes used (4): 1x compiler, 1x evolver, 2x library
Total nodes: 21 + core = 22

C6
Image

Advantages
  • 2x choke points
  • Resources are well guarded
  • Antivirus spreads quickly to the defense nodes
  • Nodes are pretty spread out, so the attacker has a long way to go until he reaches the back

Disadvantages
  • Scanner positions may be improved to offer some extra protection vs stealth

Note: The sentry from the back of the black ice can be swapped with the Evolver (didn't test the AV spread out, just created it earlier today). I also don't like the Code Gate into Code Gate setup, however, seems to be the very best setup for a lv 6 base, just to have those really strong choke points.


!IMPORTANT
1st scanner should not be upgraded at all! Only upgrade the 2nd scanner (preferably rush it to lv 8 ASAP)


Core 7 Ideas
Max nodes: 24
Business nodes used (5): 1x server farm, 2x database, 2x b-coin mine, 2x b-coin mixer
Security nodes used (9): 2x sentry, 3x turret, 2x black ICE, 2x code gate, 2x scanner, 1x guardian
Hacking nodes used (4): 1x compiler, 1x evolver, 2x library
Total nodes: 23 + core = 24

C7
Image

Advantages
  • 2x choke points
  • Resources are well guarded
  • Antivirus spreads quickly to the defense nodes
  • Nodes are pretty spread out, so the attacker has a long way to go until he reaches the back

Disadvantages
  • Portals are quite often at these levels, so you already need a high enough scanner by now
  • High level shockers / Protectors will go through those 2 chokes easily if your defenses / antivirus aren't high enough.

Note: I don't know if there might be any AV spread improvements that can be made, however, this one works just fine. Portals suck. Can't wait to upgrade higher to get rid of them! ^^

Thanks, I got most of my idea's from this post. I was planning to start over until I read this....Now I have a pretty solid defence network going with a sentry, a turret and a black ice at the front and a few choke points from there to the code gate right before the core and I'm hiding my money makers and b-coin mines behind the core with a turret protecting them. Thanks again for all your help :-)

Have I missed a guide or page on defence upgrade priorities?
Would it be:
1) scanner
2) sentry
3) gates
4) guardians
5) black ice
6) turrent
(farms, libraries, and evolvers upgraded on the side)

What you want to upgrade depends on how your network is built.
Hell_Diguner - C12L34, Had C12L29 (world record), soon to be a Shuriken main
DiaboliExMachina - C10L28, Maniac+Worms main
CaptainDavyJones - C10L27, Beams main, will eventually be Kraken main
