I am here to tell you the Do’s and Don’ts of making a base when you start Clash of Clans!
These are common mistakes that beginners make with their base.
Layering your walls (The Layered walled base)
So you might think that having multiple layers of walls is good, right? I mean every troop has to fight though all the walls so that will waste time so that’s good, right? The short answer is that it’s good, but only against single target troops (like barbarians and archers). Wall breakers can do splash damage against walls, so they can destroy multiple walls at once.
Building your base on the sides of the map
This is one of the most common mistakes that new clashers make. Building your base against a corner or side is a bad idea because troops can spawn on the dark green patches of grass. In fact Supercell takes advantage of this in the goblin level natural defense, which seemingly forces you to attack from the bottom of the base when you can just spawn troops on the top and destroy the air defense to make sure that your balloon is safe to 3-star the mission.(Red is where Supercell wants you to spawn, Green is where you can really spawn,take out that Air defense, and 3-star the mission with a balloon)
Surrounding your entire base with walls
Another example of a common mistake that Clash newcomers make. Attackers could easily break the first layers of wall and then have the freedom to destroy the rest of you base. See the white lines in the base? Well within those white lines are the spaces that spots that troops are allowed to spawn on.
Make empty 3X3 compartments in your base
See that red circle in those walls? That little spot is where troops can spawn in your base. Every building has a one tile no-spawn radius around them(as shown below). but see that hidden tesla? there is not any no-spawn radius around them. So contrary to popular belief, teslas do not block the empty spot, so troops can spawn in there, even with the tesla there (same thing applies to traps, as seen below)
Make your base with multiple compartments
Make your base with multiple cells or compartments, it will be harder for the attacker to 3-star your base and it will protect your buildings more.
Centralizing your Clan castle
Even though it might not seem like it, the clan castle is one of the most important buildings and the most powerful defense in the game, centralizing the clan castle will make it harder for people to draw out the troops and will ruin their raid (because the clan castle troops will kill the attacker’s troops.
