Looks good, only if anyone can place his units outside your buildingarea below, your absolutly crushed ;P Well i heard, its possible so, would take a redbunker below and not protecting above that much (well im somehow paranoid ;P)

Yeah you weak below I'd say same move turrets near base with banks close to base and the ore and coin farms other side of turrets.

Thanks for the comments. Waiting for someone to attack.
Last time they came from the bottom side. But could not do much damage. Co's bunker range was enough to attack.
Eny how I moved the bunker to wall. Looks good.
Thanks beat and lily :)

What do you think about this defense?, I've had amazing results!... The main thing is that it's pretty hard for my enemies to plan their strategy when they are going "blind" into the battlefield :cool:
Star Base lvl 5, all turrets are built and strategically placed, can you spot them? ;)
Looking forward to your comments and suggestions!

That's cool. Mmmmm under the trees? Haha
Still cans see the motor turrent and the frzeer turrent behind the bunker and the mine.

But it looks good. You can't know the type of turrent hiding behind the trees.!! nicely done. Some one would have to test the torrents first before planing the attack.

How is the results? Anyone have distoroyed the star base completly?

Yeah the freeze and missile launcher turret are too big to be hidden behind the mines (I believe not even a tree will conceal your freeze turret because of the constant smoke-like it produces), but there are other mines covering up cannon/snipers/mortar ;)

Results are great! I haven't had my base destroyed once since I had the mortar (upgraded it to lvl 2 as soon as it finished building), and it's been a while now. I really recommend using the trees and mines to cover up the turrets, most enemies will think twice before attacking you :cool:

I would use the buildings that are not houses/banks and mines/silos as obstacles surrounding my turrets (which would be surrounding my important buildings giving star base and banks/houses priority over mines/silos). This is because the units your opponent will send will start shooting the first thing they find, so you don't want that to be the turrets (as would happen in your case because they are on the outermost circle)... you want them to find your factory, starport, etc... even the mines which can take a lot of hits before going down (if you upgrade 'em enough) and you can pretty much afford the mineral drain, while it won't be viable for your opponent since your turrets will most likely snipe his troops down while they focus on the non-important buildings before they even get to the good ones (houses/banks/star base).

Hope this helps!

P.D. I would also spread out the 3 bunkers, since you want some army fighting no matter which way they come. In your case you are only covering the upper side. Remember that bunker troops will sometimes mess up with the troops ai and they will start running towards your army without shooting anything (because they will be trying to reach them) while your turrets kill them all.

I'd build wall behind the troop/factory etc buildings moving turrets with them same above move base in front of portals and turrets that way have more covering fire.

As ATM I'd drop moles near laser tower to kill that then drop in my aircraft to take out the cluster turrets and mortar sniper turrets then with tanks and rocket men etc knocking all your lower section off before your bunkers have chance to unload.

I'd find a drop spot behind your coins and hit them hard, think you need to redo it little, unimportant buildings like factory's etc outside walls making troops land away from banks hq etc with turrets around your banks hq etc if possible make sure each turret it protected by another turrets range and or bunker

Kirch, but if you see there are many stones on the left, where it is not 'can summon or construct anything: D

That's true. You don't need them to hit your turrets first. :)

Move the turrets outside the wall inside. Behind the production buildings would be good. Cos you have the wall too. To hit the turret they have to breach the walls and hit the production buildings. Which gives you decent time to attack.

Star base looks too open to me. May be move some mines to right side of the star base, will give you more time for your units inside the bunker to attack.

And the frzeer tower will be good with the bunker together. Not appart.

And the unit combination inside the bunker. If I am to guess I think there are wraps and beetle tanks? In my experience wraps are not very affective in the bunker. They get hit easily. Infantry units!

And Gravity, you are a admin no? I was surprised to see you only level 40? How come. I thought all admins are like +200or something. Hahahah :)

Don't forget the mines!, they are amazing covers as well!, only freeze and missile launcher will still be a little more visible under mines, but they do a good job concealing cannons, snipers and even the mortar!

@rokudamerlin.
Base 1:Nice hiding. :) the weak point I think is the placement of coin banks and the star base. Coin banks keep your money. Star base has only a limited amount. So when someone attacks , he or she will go for the banks first. So they has to be protected.
On the other hand your design works well if the attack is launched from the front. All the way to the star base. But I think there is plenty of space to hit from the back too. Starting from the star base. The purpose of someone when attack would always be to hit the star base and loot coins. And the defence should be able to prevent that happening.
I would suggest, bring the coin houses and mines outside and put banks inside. Coin houses and mines takes lots of hits. That will give you enough time to deal with the army. First row will be coin houses or mines second row will be hidden turrents and inside row will be star base and banks. Some thing like that. :)

Base 2: I'm not sure about the idea of the base design. With this design your star base and coin banks are fully exposed to attack without getting any damage. If someone attack from back side. May be few tanks and marines will do. As you don't have the star port no need to worry about air units.
As I remember you can build two red bunkers for level four. It really helps to keep enemy units away. Hiding turrnts is not the strategy. I would say saving the star base and the coin banks is priority.
Place your star base at the center with the banks and surround it with mines and coin houses. When enamy units attacking your mines and coin houses will give your turrnts time to do lots of damage. Check mine at 144,28. So far it took more than 5attempts to bring it down. So not bad hihihi :)

Base 3: mmmmm no idea. Don't think about it too much. :) ;)

Hope this will help you.

hi Infinitive..
my english is not the best .. sry for this ;)

- the tree´s not only decoration .. build a tree in the front of a tower and you can his hide a little bit for the enemy is good .. a user can think is a tower behind he can not see what for a tower ;)
- i think is not good postion 5 towers building in so a postion .. a enemy can attack to a special all 5 towers and the falcon have easy play to kill all 5 in a run .. better you hide and make one for one in the base ;) that's my opinion
- the grave in the front from the mortar i want chance to a tree is better - the mortar is the most prio. in a attack .. you can he not see is better ;)

I would simply attack the sides (upper left and lower right with a host of looters... You might be able to utilize your friend base better, put it more in play than on the far left....

Hi guys it's been a while, I see a lot more people are taking the "hide the turrets" advice, thats cool! :cool: ...
So here's an update of my base:

SB lvl 8 every resource and army buildings maxed (xept a couple houses), bunkers maxed, mortar laser and missile maxed, and all snipers and cannons lvl 8 working towards lvl 9. (Everything is there, most turrets are hidden tho). I've also had the time to have a lot of trees grow around my base to make it even harder for ground troops :)
All my troops but zepps are upgraded to the max lvl (6), zepps are lvl 4 if I remember correctly, working on that...

Save your workers for resources it is much more time effective to let someone destroy you and repair it without the turrets.

You could put militar buildings out of the wall, surround turrets with this buildings and walls. You can even put militar buildings in the other side of the planet, surround all the mines, houses, storages and base with walls and put the turrets inside it. So, it will be easier to cover all important buildings with turrets. Try to put mortar bedside missle launcher, sniper towers alone, cannons used just to support snipers, bunkers covering weak spots and laser gun in a weak spot too. And your freeze turret should be put in a no-bunker-covering area, supporting a sniper or laser tower, but NOT alone. And you shoulden't put a bunker next to another, put them in diferent places.

Sorry for the bad resolution. I couldn't get a better photo but you can recognize the turrets.

Mortars are lvl 3, missle launcher and laser tower are lvl4, snipers and cannon blasts are lvl 5 and freeze turrets are lvl 2. In each bunker there are 3 colossus and 7 falcons, but there is nothing in allianca bunker. Any tips?
