I’m a level 48 and I did research on base building as I went along and I made some mistakes when it comes to my base. I wish I would have made my base short vs long and I wish I wouldn’t have started putting towers on the third island. I know by my level I really shouldn’t be on the third island for optimal defense but I am and I’m not sure if I screwed myself. I have seen levels 38-50 having towers go out on all of the islands to be fair so at least I’m not that far out. When I was around level 20-30 I was dumb and decided to make a bunch of level 1 archers to get more points for the fortification event I didn’t realize that this would later lead to inflation of my defense power.
So now I have at least 10-12 towers in my storage ranging from level 1-12 of archer, mages, cannons etc. I have started building on the third island but I’m planning on staying put and not building on any more islands until I’m at least in the 200s or so and just upgrading the towers I have now to try to keep my base short as possible.
Now at my level I believe the max level of most of my towers is around 19 and for best results all my towers should be at that level, but I was stupid and they’re not. Most of my towers are around 15, with some around 13-14 and I’m not sure how to catch up? I’ve done a lot of research and I plan to level up my mages, storms, flaks (not sure after update anymore) first and have those be my strongest towers. I have a red and a blue mage sitting in my storage at level 1 and I really want them on my long middle island but my defense power would really take a hit. I’m only allowed so much XP and by the time I level each of my highest towers which is my storm, flak, and mages, I’m only left with 1k-1.5k xp left to play with. Now I feel my base will never be up to its full potential. Am I able to fix this? I have a pic of my base attached. Any other base related advice is welcome too, I love learning new stuff!
