So if these have to be completed IN ORDER.... can someone place the outpost st the entrance of the channel and if it's destroyed going in, the attacker does not get stars? If so, something needs to change. The outpost does need to take a beating, but with creativity, I'm sure if this has to be done in order, you may see something like this.


To earn Medals, objectives must be completed in order.

    •    1st Star: Destroying 50% of the player’s base.
    •    2nd Star: Destroying the player’s Outpost.

    • Earning 2 Stars constitutes a victory.

    •    3rd Star: Destroying 100% of the player’s base.

    cant help but notice that nothing seems to have been mentioned about the rules for base layouts and yet i now cant go to the world map while i have illegal building placement

    thats helpful but my op does overlap the adjacent tiles to the one under its core meaning it is within the 4 tiles from water rule but it still doesnt count!

    a heads up that a base re-design would be needed post update would have been nice!!!

    I think this is bull, My op is within 4 walls from the water. I know because it does get hit just not by everyone. Thats why i have a square base. Kixeye you guys are retarded. your business will fail soon and i hope all of you end up homeless because you have taken a cool game and made it all about money

    Added to the release notes. Essentially, the a building cannot be 4 Land Tiles away from water on all sides. Hope that clarifies things.

    No more square bases! Well the noobs and wimps worried about alliance points all in trouble!

    forsaken defenses are inadequit to protect the outpost,
    since this is your new rules and you are now making it easier for the coiners to destroy non coiners basess and outposts,
    the inability to stop someone from entering your base and killing your outposts is why i made a round base.
    i have dropped my alliance tag to reduce as much points as possible from the coiners who are gonna now be able to destroy every **** building in my base cause nothing can stop them.

    i know people dont like square bases but it was within the rules - not cheating just difficult - no narrow channels/diagonal chains etc. the trade off being that i cant really protect my dock so i have covered my op at the expense of my dock. 

    it just seems ridiculous that my op is actually partially on tiles that are the 4th tile from water and its illegal. why not just say - square bases are not allowed?

    LMAO, the new medal system will probably kill off all the smaller alliances in game, prepare for mass dis-bandings, I already disbanded mine.

    i DEMAND new turrets researchable that can STOP every **** fleet thats on the water,
    the inability to stop someone from entering your base and killing your outposts is why i made a round base.
    change the **** rules back NOW or hear from me daily till it does.

    Maybe work on a base guard? You will probably get more improvement that way than demanding that Kix change their game for you.
    Quit Spring 2015 or so, returned Jan 2019.

    Why? Because bases are going to be hit a bit more frequently? Sounds like your alliance was pretty awful if you're disbanding over that.

    I dont have all of the stuff to stop a level 65 rolling through my base. Which is what will happen. Guard fleet will take months to build. If they are going to do this then it needs to be five up and five down. At least let me try and defend against someone i might actually have a chance of stopping. And you call it noob cube well here another alternative with 1/2 off repair times i dont need to coin repairs anymore so ill just buy a perma bubble and you wont get nothing from my base.

    Having a square base didn't guarantee safety anyway...  If you weren't careful I could use siege morts to splash it dead anyway.  But, in the end it was a cheap cop out...  If you learn how to build a good base you won't have to worry about your OP OR your Dock getting hit

    Do what? Make it so you can't have a square base? You get farmed just as easily with a square as you would with a normal base, it just means that with a square base now I can get your res/dock without taking a second of repair.

    I think others have said that you can't leave base until you change your base, might be wrong about that though.
