Core LvL 5 Advice.

Hey guys. I've included a link to an image of my network at the end of this post.

I have a few questions pertaining to the build and upgrade path.

I was planning on maxing turrets and code gates.
Is this a worth-while investment?

I have read that Black ICE may be more valuable as a choke-point so have left it on level 1. Thoughts on this?

Should I de-upgrade my lvl 4 sentry to lvl 1? Reading conflicting accounts on this matter. I understand a lvl 1 sentry with a high lvl sentry is the "optimal" min-max strat?
I feel like having a second high level sentry could help push AV out faster and potentially cause a player to spend more time and/or shields to take down the first half of my base.

Those are the issues I have been considering thus far. Any other points or ideas gratefully accepted :)

Yes, you should update turrets and code gates. Use turrets along with black ices on chokepoints (your scanner choke is nice) Don't use a black ice AS a chokepoint - it has 5 slots and attacker can use them easily. Use it to choke something better as lvl 1 farms/mines or scanner. Choked node MUST have 3 slots. Upgrade also two sentries and scanners along (when one is disabled, the second one works.) Remember that minmax isn't the best strategy in game. Never connect two nodes with high firewall, as you have done on the back of your net. Code gates should be avaivable to get from one three-slot node to slow the attacker. The rest of your network is fine. Good luck! 8-)
