Outpost Defensive Layout Guide

Flag Post

I know that you’ve seen and heard many times how to correctly lay out your base to avoid catastrophic losses from any type of invasion. However, once you hit the world map, your main base rapidly ceases to be your main concern. Why, you ask, would this be? For one simple reason: You can’t lose your main base to other players. You can, however, lose your outposts to other players. Outposts are the lifeblood of any successful empire and to keep your outposts you must build an effective defense. Please note that in outposts you cannot use as many of each building type as you can in your main base. Here is a example of what I think is an effective outpost defense (and I use in mine :)):

Please post your comments on this outpost and your own outposts for ratings. Thanks and I hope this helps. If you want to know more about how to build an empire and defend it or just want a group to hang out with, please visit the World Alliance Main Thread and request membership (as soon as you meet the requirements).

I didn’t use a kit. Built this baby from scratch. The kits really aren’t useful unless you have the money on hand. I prefer to build them up over time.

@Bballdude: nice setup, btw, does the pathing work correctly?

Thanks. And I’m pretty sure but since they’re is no monster baiter I’m not completely sure. Also the wild monster attacks don’t even get close to going to my TH.

Outpost kits are extremely useful. If you don’t have enough resources available at the time, you can attack wild monster tribes until you can afford the large kit (and later the mega kit, once you can hold enough resources for it). Building the kits is much better than building from scratch, because it provides you with many high-level buildings right at the start. Considering that outposts only have one worker, building kits saves you weeks of building and upgrading time. Also, you can build yard planners on outposts to help redesign those kits anyway, so you don’t have to keep the kit design.

Admit it; You bought a bunch of decorations for your yard.

Also, my own outpost design?

It’s a butterfly, because fuck manliness.

When I build an outpost, I normally put snipers and cannons outside, and all my other towers inside the walls.
