I count only 1 and a half chokepoints :S

I agree with Luminaar. The turret on the second code gate is mostly useless. I'd much rather put it on the guardian or on the first scanner.

Your network is really weak to wraiths and shurikens.
If I was hacking your network, then I'd wraith both code gates, the turret on the evolver, and the sentry on the first code gate.
I would use shuriken on:
  • the first scanner so your core is useless.
  • the second code gate so I don't need to wait for the turret to go down if I'm low on time.
  • guardian obviously along with shocker.
  • the black ICE connected to the server farm, b-coin mine, and database if I'm low on time.

That's fair enough. If those are your concerns, then I have a definite cookie-winner :D

Remove the Sentry on the Guardian and attach it to the Black ICE or Turret that are attached to the Guardian (or both if you want faster AV installation, although I'd suggest the node with the lowest priority of the two so it burns more time.) Attacks that get that far will have to attack your Sentry before attacking your resources. This frees up the spot to move the Turret that's attached to the Code Gate on to the Guardian, improving that choke point substantially.

For bonus sprinkles, I assume the B-coin Mine near the front of the network is there to make it harder for someone to get 100% resources. Forget about Rep, and move that to the remaining Black ICE/Turret connection at the back.

Is this about right?

Check the image...3 choke points.

I got your advice to change the turret from de the second codegate to the first scanner, it makes a lot of sense because it gives e time for the AV to spread to the codegate and the core to attack the scanner (and make it the 1st choke point).

So...tecnically you got a cookie :D

Two of those circled nodes aren't really chokepoints.
You have a single turret on the evolver. That's not really a chokepoint.
You have zero security nodes on the scanner so that is for sure not a chokepoint.
But I'm glad you listened to my old-man-with-long-beard sage advice of putting the turret on the scanner. It's still just a single turret on it though.
Don't really even need ice walls to get past those nodes :S

I love cookies so I'm fine even if it's just crumbs.

So, when do I get this cookie which you speak of, friv? It better not be past its expiry date either.

My man i like your advice a lot, im worried about stealth attacks so im going to keep both advices but upgrading both scanners =), anyways you have 2 cookes :lol: :D

Keep in mind the more you upgrade a node, the worse it will be as a chokepoint.
