I appreciate the tips. Currently, I am focusing on the sentry (l13), scanner (l9), libraries (2x l7), shurikens (l6), blasters (l4) and protectors (l4). At level 15 a blaster is just four levels behind a ram. Nice to know when I'm done. I've noticed the potential of the Shocker though. However, currently I rely on the protector for choke points.
Last night I had the first successful hack against my network, while my sentry was upgrading. The attacker used the Kraken program. At level 22, there was only $ 7k and B 1k to get, but only got $ 825 and B 26. I've moved my core to the middle, because of this.
Do you have any tips on how to use the search function? At level 22, I think I can get consistently $ 100k and/or B 2k targets, but it takes a while to get $ 3M. I estimate that the average compilation time is 15 min (2 threads, going for the 3rd when I can). Should I search more and settle less?
