I spent 1.5 hours yesterday redesigning my base thanks to the new loot system they put in place. I'm getting attacked way more now since everything I have cost so much and I have to save majorly to get enough to upgrade. So I needed to be able to defend my base better so I won't lose so much loot. I had a pocket before with it all in the middle but that design doesn't work once they get in the middle as they get it all.
I think this is one of the better bases I've made and I've won 3 defenses in a row. I'm really waiting for a hog attack on my base so I can see how it works against them. A big attack with giants doesn't work at all so far.
I'm up for any opinions anyone might have to make it better.
