I am still a noob, and learning, but here are some of my strategies that work with varying degrees of success.

If I am conserving Ice Walls and I need more slots for beams (I don't use Shurikens often) then I shocker, protector, 2 beams.

If the defender has a higher level anti-virus that will knock my protector down with their other defenses, then I Ice wall, protector, blaster, and keep the ice wall on until one node is down, then when it goes away I replace with a beam.

If time is not low, or I made the mistake of no shockers, then I Ice Wall, protector, blaster, and beam when the Ice Wall goes down.

You're embarrassing me. There are plenty of people whom I hold in higher regard than myself. They just don't post on the forums any more.

The last sentence is unclear to me (around "Protector Main"), but other than that it is a good post!

What would your recommendation be for upgrading ice wall, protector and shocker?
