    you are mistaken.

    Agreed on that. The base is useful for easy resources from what I'm seeing.

    Agreed with the prior three posts.

    First, I don't plan my designs using Kixeye's developed "Base Planner." I find it extremely lacking in several areas. My designer of choice is base doctor.

    Second, do you remember what you did before base planner? MOVED CHIT BY HAND ONE PAINFUL WALL AT A TIME!!

    You can still do that. Go design on base doctor. Use their ease checks and balances to test ranges and etc. Then go to you base and start moving by hand. Not all will be moveable due to the LP and the land it is on, but you can move 90%. Then when your bubble is about up, have a friend hit the moved stuff and do 12 hours of bubble. Might have to do it again if not 100% repaired in time.

    OR wait until your 24 hour is almost up and buy a 24 hour bubble so that you can use the base doctor. A one day is cheap (like 10 coins or something. Idk, haven't bought one in a long long long time like years ago).

    Relocate. Your base just sucks.
    Don't use Level. Use Tech when describing players. Level means nothing, its all about tech.

    If he's getting hit every 24 hours (which implies easy alliance points and/or resources), dropping from an alliance (if he is even in one) won't do him any good. A farm is a farm, with or without a tag.

    If you are not getting hit every day or so, then you are not irritating enough people. My base will only kill about three dreadx's at the moment. It is ironic that the game rewards people for not playing, but those are the people that are fun to irritate anyway. If you take the player with a 1m player number who is the same level as I am with a 3m player number, the best I can do is irritate him. 40% of my level points were from battle screen issues and I pay a penalty for that.
    As for the alliance deal, I created my own, so I could kill dreads. I could not attract enough attacks with full warehouses.
    I sort of enjoyed having to move things around without the base planner, a lot of people neglected their bases due to that. Kixeye made the game easier for people how don't play once again. It is a funny game philosophy, I don't know if it is by design or mistake.

    please post a pic of what you want to do with your base..... why cant you work around the launch pad? your issue may be more than the base planner.. you maybe want to start asking for advice on bases.. if your a farm now, are you sure your changes will help that much?

    as suggested in another post... change it old school.. or at least protect your launch pad better for a few days....expose OP, warehouses until you can sort it out.
    If your not paying for what you use, your not the customer.... your the product.

    Would love to see your new base in action, wondering what you have switched to, 5, 6 halos?

    Doesn't sound like the base planner is your issue it's the fact that someone is hitting you with such regularity that your base hasn't fully repaired. Your options are to coin your LP repair, relocate away from the person hitting you or as others have mentioned change the base the old fashioned way

    I have been playing less than a year, I am building my first halo. My base fleets suck, as I focused on cargo and the events. A toilet would fix a lot of issue too. If you have to auto SW in events due to battle screen issues, it changes the game. The simple issue is the rebuild time of the launch pad renders the planner useless if you are attacked with any frequency. Again, I really don't care as you can work around it. Now I have to design a base that kills fleets at only 50%. From what I can tell, they have not destroyed my outpost 100%, so maybe they are not getting their points. I have no way to tell. The battle reports are useless. I think they are timing out, but have no way to tell.

    I was sort of amused that all the work for the base planner is useless if you are getting attacked ever day.

    a wrecked base due to a poor design?? not the fault of a computer aid

    being a salvage bandit has draw-backs - you level up too quickly

    Can you post your base layout so we can give advice and help you out with your base layout?

    Look if you do not mind trolls or hard critics then it would help YOU a lot by posting your post. Posting here wont get it hit any more than it is and you may actually learn something.
    Edit: I meant posting your BASE...please do not post your post...that may hurt.

    I dont think it useless.

    Firstly, If he is level 50, his base is good if he is only hit every 24 hours. If your base is REALLY good, you get hit every 12 hours as a level 50.
    If his base was bad he would get hit every 36 hours. I know this because as a level 50 the moment your bubble drops you are hit again.

    Secondly, anybody who takes their launchpad to level 5 has to be insane. Mine is staying at level 4. Kixeye made level 5 suicide by the repair time. I prefer a 14 sec pinch I can use to a 20 second pinch I can rarely use.

    Thirdly, stop following the crowd like a kixeye sheep. Dont play Kixeyes game, put the wh and ops out ,res is unimportant. Whats important to protect are launchpad, dock, upgrades and research. 50% of the time you will get rimmed by somebody whos eyes light up when they see the op and wh,s , give you a free 12 hour bubble ,and they wont even do 50% damage.

    Or if you're really lucky, sometimes you get hit two or more times a day before you retrieve a 12 hour bubble. ;)
