It just baffles me that for almost a month you've been upgrading your turrets/Black ICEs/CGs.... well, everything really 2-4 levels up but not even once did you upgrade your sentry and it's still at lvl 8-9... i just don't get it...

If you level up a turret, it gets a small bump in damage. If you level up your sentry, ALL your nodes get a slight bump in damage. If you level up 1 turret (say level 8 -> 9), your 3 turrets at the choke point do 4 more damage total. If you level up your sentry (8 -> 9), the same turrets will do 12 more damage in total. And all other nodes will do 3 more damage.

It doesn't seem that you need one more with where it's placed. If an attacker can make it to your scanner choke point in ~40 seconds (time depends on the level of sentry you have, the higher its level the faster it spreads AV) then you'd need one more right now. But then again, when the sentry is being upgraded it doesn't spread AV, so your defense drops significantly if you only have one and it's busy.

Could you show us pictures of your updated base instead of spamming the thread?

Nice guide really helped but i have a question, what if i have two scanners of lvl 8 both will that double the visibility since none of them is at a higher level than the other? Or is only one of the scanners gonna count the activity even if both are of the same level?

Nope, no double
