Lvl 7 setup

Trying this out to see how it works. Krakens are useless against it. The idea is to hopefully make them decide which side to work on. Would be a bit of a challenge for someone to work both sides at once. B-coins and $ are split between each side with the thought that even if they get to one side, I might still have the other one left. Also have one security clustered, and the other not. Yes, I know I need to level up my security. Just don't have the real life $$ to spend on that currently, so it's going slowly. Just saw I need to connect my Guardian to my scanner.

You probably already notice this but your network layout forces you to pump money into 2 sentries, scanners, and code gates which is really expensive and tanks your level really high so be careful of that.

You're better off forcing attackers to go through both code gates and then splitting the path so you can at least save money on one scanner and use it as a chokepoint. Probably can save on sentry too.

Make the intruder go trough both code gates to make it useful, you wont probablly need 2 highly upgraded scanners.
Both defences are weak and easy to beat.
I dont think so thats very good idea to put network like that. Make everything (such as code gates) useful to the maximum

Splitting attacker's attention might be a good idea but not at that level. People around level 26 might have portal already (i had it, i saw recently some others at lvl 24) and they'll just use portal on the sentry in the cluster (they won't even need to wraith your gate unless you have level 8-9 scanner but then again they'll just use portal on your other branch if/when you do), drop shurikens, maybe ice wall and move to your other branch. And they'll have almost the whole 3 minutes to crush it.

Not bad, but for lvl 46.
But if one highly upgraded scanner covers choke points and code gates, i do not think there is another upgraded scanner needed.
- At lvl 46 I guess you have bigger network, so there are 2 scanners more useful than for lvl25

I take it you have a problem with a high level telling you how to play. Yes 2 is useful I do not like repeating myself, While you are leveling one the other protects you from stealth attacks. They still have to get it high to cover the choke point, which means a ton of down time. from 7 and beyond you are talking a day of it being down for each upgrade. So yeah I think they should have 2 high level scanners. And when they get it up there in levels then they have a back up against high level access programs. This is not rocket science, and giving bad advice to new players is not cool.

I cant tell that your advice is bad, Im sure you are mor expirienced than me, no doubts.
Just there is big difference between lvl 24 and 46 tho, keep that in mind
And lastly, Im giving advice from my expirience, not to make my enemies play bad lol

I've been 25 been there done that and I know what is to come for levels 25-46. So yeah there is a big difference I have been there and learned what not to do and what to do. I also know that unless you want to go weeks with out a scanner you will level 2 of them. That is the simple fact. As scanners take forever to level and upgrading it means you have no scanner. It is common sense to have 2.

Oh just a question, is it viable to live off looting up the higher level or should I start making more producers? I'm maintaining a fairly offensive playstyle atm.
