I'm conflicted about giving you advice since you are in my hunt range but still...
Move the core next to your cg. It stalls better.
Your choke point don't have enough damage. I'd shuriken to hit the next weak node and ignore the defenses, but taking the defenses itself down is not that hard either.
Also where the f is your third turret
Don't upgrade all your sentries, it's not efficient. 2 sentries back to back on second choke is also bad.

Just note that you don't have the second black ice too. Well rip, you'll be the ideal hunt target for almost everyone. No defenses, just miners

What he said is true. Don't link your choke points with each other, it makes it very easy to go from one to the other and your 2 turrets are basically useless. You have too many farms and too few security nodes. Such people are perfect for a hunt because you don't really need much finesse and thinking while hacking them.

I was planning on getting defense nodes with my next level core. I heard you needed your second database to get to next level core, so i needed to get that one. My third turret is leveling.

u dont need 3 sentries!
and everything after ur code gates needs a complete redesign
u lack choke points.

check the site for guides and take ideas from what other players post, even if they have core 8 or 6, basic defense clusters are the same.

The first scanner placement is somehow odd IMO.
There is like only 0.5 choke point for your base.
I'd make use of one of the scanner after gate as choke.

My main concern here are your choke points.

You are using a code gate (circled in red) and a turret (next to the yellow circle) as choke points. They shouldn't be used as choke points as they have high firewall. Switch those two with one of the suggested choke points I pointed out.

If you want more choke point examples, visit this post for more information.

Hope that helps!
