Advanced BOMB defence guide

So many bases waste their bombs. So here is my guide. I'm a former world no1 defence only player... So kinda worth trying my tips :)

First, to win you want your bombs triggered often, and as early in the attack as possible. This means mostly bombs in the second layer of defence (cus bombs MUST be between defence buildings and also double as wallbreaker defence). If they in the middle you've probably lost the defence by the time they get used.

Second, bombs are critical hog defence, which means they always go between defence buildings. Spring traps get placed between def buildings one between each cus one will spring three hogs but two together wont do 6 hogs - so better to place one each between two defence buildings. Also big bombs are great between defence and next to wiz towers. Big bomb hurts a bunch and with no heal the wiz tower splash damage might even kill a full hog bunch.

Third, bombs need to be deployed with dual purpose. Put them against walls as well as between defence so that they double as wallbreaker defence. For small bombs if maxed use two together - a pair of small bombs does enough damage to kill max wallbreakers.

Next is air bombs - black air bombs hit a single target so they are best deployed on the perimiter (so they kill attack early before the attack does too much damage) in the weakest air defence part of your base.

Finally the all important red air bombs - they do splash damage and 2-3 together can kill a balloon bunch... So i use em to protect my townhall or my infernos - 2-3 together to kill a bunch - ballons often bunched by the time they get to middle.

Finally, if u can manage it big bombs are also great witch and wizard defence so if you can place next to a wizard tower in the middle of a big pocket u can often kill a bunch of wizards or witches.

Check out my bases for examples.

    Predator,

    Yes, Admiral Ackbar is what I'm using and so far it has done fairly well (bottom two air mines taking out healers, top traps seriously weakening stuff, etc). if you find some time (I know you're busy), let me know your thoughts of placement and such!

    Thanks.

    Predator,

    I must be tech challenged because I'm not sure what kik is, haha. I used the wrong link though and think am gonna try reposting here. If it doesn't work again, well then I apologize for making the comment section of your guide look like $^[email protected] Thanks for getting back to me though, I really appreciate it!

    Predator,

    I really appreciate this guide you wrote up for all of us. The placement of my traps has always been an afterthought to me, but with the suggestions you list, it makes me realize how beneficial the really can be. I was wondering if you could take a look at my base ([[-265150)-]] and let me know if I'm understanding your guide correctly..

    Should I move my two outer Teslas away from the Wizard Towers and replace them with Giant Bombs? If this is the case, what is your tip on Tesla placement?

    This was my main question based on your guide, any other suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks again for the guide!

    Baby il try th7 n 8 - defence harder but simpler at lower th levels cus mostly base level drives the result - but a pocketed base with stores in different pockets and th in defence range and all buildings covered by splash damage air and ground def is the basic strategy at those th levels - it changes at th 9 - need a few days to think bout good th7-8 designs ... Will post soon

    My first thought is Xmas bomb better in bottom right of base so it deploys more quickly because santas sleigh starts in bottom right

    == Won2Many == yeah i was prob a bit harsh. Me i find defence hard so any guides on defence pretty handy. And bomb layout - its often done last so many times people place bombs as an afterthought. Yet bomb placement can win a lot of defences. Its critical in a good defence base.

    Hansolo - great suggestion. Me i like a giant bomb, then air defence, then wiz tower sequence so hogs hit the bomb then take wiz tower splash damage while they hit the air defence... If the hogs going the way round the base you'd like em to.

    I like the guide. I have one point to add that I learned the hard way.

    Giant Bombs/Wizard Towers on the outer edge are brutal to Hogs - BUT - putting them on the perimeter is risky or even pointless (and expensive) unless you protect them with an Air Defense. This sounds silly at first but if you don't, just a few balloons can clear the defenses causing the hogs to never even go near the giant bomb, or worse, run past it and trigger it yet not taking damage.

    Have we really come to the point where we need a guide on how to set up bombs. I totaly agree with what ur saying i just dont think guides need to be created for everything.
