Another every effective island design combined with mini boxes in a hybrid layout. The walled TH looks deceptively like a farm base but this is a trophy base make no mistake. Giants will not march to the center since they only attack defenses and any attackers travelling towards the TH will have to fend off attacks from 4 walled an boxed island defenses.
One of the first island designs I ran into during my raids. Very effective against ground troops. Giants are guided into the corrals and lead to traps protecting the unwalled mortars and wizard towers.
One of the first effective farming bases I've come across since I started collecting screenshots. Wizard towers and ADs (air defenses) are entrenched, CC (clan castle) is centered, and mortars and cannons effectively circle the perimeter guarding against archer raids. Not sure where he was planning to put those big bombs though.
This is the start of the base design page. Sometimes referred to as the defense layout or base layout, it is about designing a base to defend against attackers who want raid your loot and trophies. Without a good base design you can't effectively defend your loot long enough to spend it on building and upgrading defenses. This page will highlight some of the best and most interesting bases I've run into since I started collecting screen caps. Some are creative, some are deceptive, and some are downright scarey. Some like this one by Nina, can be all of the above. Enjoy and let me know what you think in the comments.
