I came up with this design when i was around level 25(level 29 now) and i have watched numerous attacks using FF and HH fail to destroy a single wharehouse or my outpost. NO I AM NOT SAYING THIS DESIGN IS UN_CRACKABLE as i believe there is not one design that can not be broken. However in my experience with base design this is the most well rounded layout i could come up with pre-SFB.

Now when the new SFB special came out i watched the forums explode with whiners crying foul saying they could no longer defend their bases and i too was a little worried at first, but after taking a closer look at my base setup i 100% DISAGREE. My base required NO CHANGES PERIOD to defend against the new special as there is only one wharehouse vulnerable to sniping and it is covered by 2 defensive platforms, one sentinel and one victory mortar. And i have watched a few coiners try again and again to snipe a wharehouse from the outside with no success.

So I decided to post my layout for a couple of reasons first of which is to show that IT IS POSSIBLE TO DEFEND YOUR BASE with smart turret selections and careful planing.

Second i am curious as to what people think about my layout and its strengths/weakness....like the old saying goes two heads are better then one.

And third TO GIVE A BIG THUMBS UP TO KIXEYE!!! THANK YOU for bringing missiles back into the game and giving us players more options for fleet vs fleet setups other then the previous standard HB3/ballistic as well as new designs for base killer/prep fleets.

And just to add a little validity to my claim here is the battle log from the most recent attack against my base courtesy of captaindestroy level 33. He destroyed all but one of my guns but DID NOT destroy a single wharehouse or my outpost

    Care to elaborate? and keep in mind i'm really referring to the layout not necessarily the level of platform.

    Forgot to add Sentinel's lvl 4, Howitzers lvl 3 and victory mortars lvl 3

    Sorry about the research times the other day i was trying to pick a fight as i haven't been attacked since i've been in this sector, lol. And you cant really design a good base without having it tested, hopefully i am on the next time you attack so i can watch. And really u would be hard pressed to prep me effectively without bubbling me but we shall see. my bubble will be popped at 3 pm PST if you want come on down and have another go at it ill even leave it open for you. oh and i moved my dock so next time wont be so easy to take it thank you for showing me that.

    No worries on your next attack though i honestly INVITE it, this is after all a war game!
    would it defend against rockets with booster lvl 3 that the question

    All wharehouses with the exception of one are 4 space + one wall space away from land border which according to kixeye will outrange any weapon including sfb missile fleets.

    mine is very similar, put 4 walls in front of the 1st row, then no mortars will fire over it... and on the backside by ur OP, you don't need walls on the backside of ur turrets... here's mine... works against rushers, cuz i got 3 howitzer 4's, and it works against the slow assault mortars/ hailstorm ff's..

    i like your setup looks good but still a little vulnerable to rockets but i dont think ballistics would get through the 4 layers of walls at all lol . after thinking about it i altered my layout a little to help defend against the rockets, instead of two walls in between the first and second row i now have three rows and no walls at the rear of the second row. hopefully i will be tested soon and will see how it fares! :)

    Yes i saw that video hopefully kixeye addresses this issue because according to the video they posted it SHOULD be enough range to be protected even though apparently its not. lol

    Overall, that looks like a pretty smart design. The pic is too small for me to see which turrets you have though. Would love to see a large picture, please.

    Thx Devin though im sure it will be cracked soon and i will have the long process of changing it again. LOL just part of the game i guess, I just wish kixeye would figure out a way to move/store all walls at once that would make altering bases layouts much much more quick and simple

    Are you **** me! I would eat this base up and spit it out for breakfast. One attack and one BB. However, this layout is old! I had this same out last year!!! Move to sector 157, 158, or 159, I could test it out every 2 days.

    First if you READ the first post you would see IM NOT SAYING THIS IS AN UN-CRACKABLE BASE AS NO BASE IS UNCRACKABLE. I am simply saying that it is possible to design a well rounded base that takes into account all types of attacks.

    Second Im speaking about the LAYOUT not the level of platforms and weapons and the success i have had with it again i never said this was the perfect layout or the best possible one in the game. As i originally stated in the first post I posted this to help the crybabies see that it is possible to at least try to defend their bases, because i have gotten tired of the endless threads of crying and whining.

    Third i posted this to gain POSITIVE feedback and CONSTRUCTIVE criticism so please withhold the useless comments or better yet take the ranting to someone that cares

    No hurt feelings here i am simply stating the facts. i know this base wont stand up to everything in this game and it shouldnt where would the fun be in trying to raid and un-breakable base? I am just tired of the useless crying on the forums about SFB and how they cant defend anymore. Its a war game adapt learn survive...simple

    Well, no base is unbreakable, and it's fun trying to break hard bases.. Though, not sure if you'd survive.

    not bad but has problems. 1)only 3 turns (actually2) 2)some of wares are still vulnerable to 96 range missles from outside moat 3) plus you have no way to stop a siege missle fleet equiped with SB3,RA3, and antimorts. think about it if your vms and sents are nullified, and ur howz way out if range how u gonna stop em??!?
