Well, for starters, you should protect your resources first and then warp gates/factories.
Also, no matter how tempting, never cut short the colony shield. It’s a waste of the most important resource (Time) and allows you to be attacked before you can defend yourself.
One last thing. Don’t leave any spaces larger than 2×2 (Like you did by your star base) in the middle of your base because units can be flung in there, bypassing a whole lot of defenses.

Why are there no blocks? I have found out that some units apparently shoot “over” the walls. So spreading out your defenses to block all your buildings is a better idea then bunching them all up.

I’m surrounding my star base with blocks. it’s still upgrading, so I can’t add that many for a while…

You want to protect the star gates at all costs if you are in analliance. If not, resources > star gates.

I understand that warp gates are the equivalent of housings, and that their destruction means lost resources, but why protect at all costs?

Otherwise you cannot fight back +-. In an alliance means you get more or less constantly attacked. You will see most of the higher leveld players all have their stargates in the right middle of their yard/base.

If pathing really has gone the way of the dinosaur, I’d like you to tell me how to effectively use the blocks.

You might want to spread out your defenses more as Boulders & Missiles are very destructive on weak weapons. I can’t believe that I forgot to get the blueprint for the freeze turret.

Foils ranged units, if pathing still applies here.

New base:

I had to defend with resource producers since I ran out of blocks.

Easily destroyed.
Put towers more close, dont let the gates undefended.Bunkers should be covered, everything is scattered.
P.S Why cover your chips, coins, minerals, tower level and stuff?

NECorg’s work here penguin, they are essential. They have enough HP to stall attackers, while taking dmg from the turrets.



I am guessing he wanted to prevent getting looted for his resources, and therefore blurred out certain details. Some were not neccesary though.

See, the only thing you need to block out are your coordinates.

Not only judge it based on defend-ability, but also how it looks. If 50% of potential attackers are scared off or otherwise intimidated, then defense is obviously less of an issue.

P.S. It was a cannon tower that got blocked out by the popup.

By the way, penguinking, that’s a level 1 cannon tower you blocked out. Nice try :P

Are those all the blocks you can use? All those towers in front of your Star Base can be destroyed by a boulder or missiles. Where is your 2nd bunker?

Yes. They only appear to be less numerous because in this game, the blocks are relatively smaller than in BYM.
Then where do you recommend putting them?
Building right now. Each bunker will go directly to the left/right of the star base, where the corresponding silos (Between star base and warp gates) are.

You can move your warp gates and decorations out of the way, move the bunkers farther downward, then move your turrets where your bunker were previously placed.
