The Best Way to Protect Guide
Headquarters in the back
Some like to put economy buildings around in front of the base to distract troops while your defenses fire upon them. Others like to Put all their economy buildings in back to prevent the enemy to get extra gun boat energy. Personally, I like to put economy buildings in the front to distract the enemy, but that's just me.
Arrangement of Buildings
Notice how this base is very close together, this is very bad for to reasons. You can easily throw a shock bomb and sense all the buildings are super close together you can shock almost all of his buildings. Also you can triple or even quadruple hit his buildings with artillery, taking out 4 times the buildings as normal.
This base is medium. It's very vulnerable to shock bombs but it doesn't have any double hits anywhere. This person would want to spread out their base more so they can't be shock bombed as easily.
This base is way better than the last one. It is spread out really well and you can't double hit many buildings at all, They also spread it out very well to where it's not flankable, meaning enemy's can't go around the base dodging the defenses.
