Hi guys,

I've just reached EA and looking for ideas for a new base to protect my oil. Any suggestions? :)

*hugs*

it's common to make a spiral/wheel of walls with the oil refinery at the center, so the AI gets confused when to break a wall and when not to.

best advice is just to watch what others do and adapt based on that.

The best advice I can give is to use EA to raid easy Gunpowder bases and build up your troops then buildings (maybe even walls) for the jump to Industrial. EA bases don't have much oil and if you want to raid IA bases you'll need strong troops. You should prioritise raiding over protecting but you can also use this time wisely and experiment with base design.
In EA, loot is easy to come by but the jump to IA is 2 or 3 steps up in time and difficulty so think of EA as a stepping stone for when the real action begins: Industrial! :D

ps: multiple compartments or sections is a good start, to confuse the attacker.

Oh, I'm not going past EA. I already have two oil hungry AA accounts and don't need a 3rd lol.

My advice would be to just skip oil at EA. Hard to come by and hard to defend vs IA. When you move IA, its much much more plentiful and easier to get with planes. Upgrade gens farming oil at EA is a time waster and takes ages just to get the oil. Factory is useless too. Up your defenses and move.

If you don’t play rather often on your base because you have other accounts, then sideline all your defenses and make sure every hit on your base is a total wipe. You lose oil just once every 16h. 20h for Japanese.
