13. Defensive Nest Placement Strategies


Last Updated:
When you are placing your defenses you need to keep in mind the following tips because failing to do so will not only make you very easy to take down, but embarrass you as well :)

1. Do not isolate your defensive positions.
It is always a good idea to have some measure of overlapping coverage so that an attack on ONE of your defensive Nests will result in defense by at least TWO of your nests. That way the enemy cannot just pile up and take them out without having to pay for it.

This Mangrove Thicket requires your HQ to be at Level 11 or above - but the $3K in gold it costs you to chop it down while singing the Lumber Jack Song translates to 1K units of on-demand Wood Resource!

2. Never place defensive Nests right next to each other!
Doing this is basically like placing a neon sign on them that says SHOOT HERE - because of the splash damage from naval guns, when defensive positions are placed right next to each other, the enemy simply can aim right between them and damage BOTH.


What Each Nest DOES
You may not be aware of this, but each of the defensive Nests that exist in the game actually has a specific strength vs enemy unit classification. That's right, there are actually reasons for placing specific weapons and tactical tricks on where to place them!

This pattern encourages the enemy to take some other path!
