Defense strategies


Sep 7, 2023
I've been playing for about half of the nine years and have multiple accounts. Recently, I began focusing my 3rd account on mostly defense. This account is a L306 Space Age account. I know it could be info age by now (Digital requires L260 and Info requires L300), but one of my defense strats is to lag behind in terms of aging up so that I can finish more building upgrades, finish wall upgrades, research more in the university, etc.

Is there a good defense thread on this forum that I should be reading to help out with defense?

Or maybe just put some good defense strats in this thread for me?

Thanks in advance.

Don't listen to him - he's crazy. 😄

Just know there's no such thing as a perfect defensive strategy but you can build a good all-purpose one. You have 3 slots in the game so practice different layouts. With the exception of a couple of garrisons, I always had my defensive buildings/towers maxed before moving up - it made defending somewhat easier in the new age. However, there's no substitute for good base design: choke points, strategic positions, swarming defenders, etc - all help to slow the attacker.
Also, don't forget the Museum and the manufactory - but as @Seek said, don't forget offense either ...
