I'm currently upgrading my Bridge to level 5.  If you have a good setup for a base with a level 5 Bridge, please post it here.  And post a picture with it as well.  Thanks!

    Conjuring a setup for Bridge V is easy. Getting the necessary armor and shields for the best is hard... Zynthium V, Shields V, Most people prefer Laser V on Bridge.

    How so BOSS?  I think it looks like a good, defensible base.  What's your base design like?

    That base is the milkers paradise

    I could explain that for you. The torps at each corner can't protect each other (barely). As long as the attacker has skill, this base will fall easily.

    Milkers are people who don't care about the base and just go for the Storages, and having Storages in front of guns makes it extremely easy to fill some fleets to 500%, specially with MD Nighthawks and Cargo V.

    Also theres a big flaw with the guns position, Torps on corners are a bad idea, someone could prep 3 Torps with MD Nighthawks and finish the Bridge with some storages with Broadswords with no damage to the Broad fleet.

    Another thing is too many Lasers, sure its good against Blitz but is useless against Torp or Plasma Venoms, so having like 5 Lasers is not so good idea.

    Okay, currently I have 2 Torps, 4 Lasers, 4 Plasma Chargers, and I have 2 modules that I have yet to put anything on (only had the level 5 Bridge for 3 days as of now), but when I do put stuff on them, I was told to have 3 Torps so I could get 360 coverage, and then have the other on just be a Plasma Charger.

    Ranged weapon on your Bridge puts Bridge in the fight for a ranged fight but takes it out of the fight on a rush attack.  visa verse for a Laser mount on the Bridge.  You have to decide which attack is most likely.  Or you could go Plasma and have moderate range with no gap in fire on a rush attack.

    I use this:

    Max Range/minor DPS

    Moderate Range/Moderate DPS

    Low Range/High DPS

    This varies with level of course because once your Plasma and Torps get closer to level 5 the DPS of the level 5 Laser doesn't seem so great.

    I can't wait to get HPC 5s, those things have a great amount of damage.  I have on my 4 HPC turrets that are all at level IX: Zynthium 2, Shockwave 3, and Heavy Plasma Charger (or whatever it's new name is) 4.  My turrets are pretty good... I think :)
