Move one of your sentries to back up the turrets. It'll spread your anti-virus quicker. Level up your scanner to 8, otherwise you'll get portalled/wraithed. Think about moving your codegates together. It actually makes them a lot more effecive if they're just in a line.

The core is also a waste.
Taking advantage of attack priority and the high firewall, it can be used to mislead intruder's beam, buying you some time.

Agreed with the first part. Sentries reall just have one job. Spread antivirus to other nodes. It does not have a special attack like the turret and black ice therefore it should not be used as a choke defence.

Also agreed with the scanner. If you have two code gates, minimum level for scanner should be level 8. You can get that with core 7. That should be enough to stop most stealth attacks forcing them to either fail, or use hybrid attacks.

And yes. Code gates are much more effective if they are close up. Stops stealth attacks closer so that they can't do much past the code gates.

The core is such a great baiting node. Sutopia explained most of it.

With your current base, an easy place to put it is next to the evolver. That way when the attacker gets to the evolver, it will start attacking two really tanky nodes. Beams will first target the tanky core before moving onto the really tanky code gate. This way it will stall a lot of time
