    Post Pingfao's Tesla Theme Park [Revamped] - A TH8 Design

    Have you ever noticed how clever Wall-Breakers have gotten since they went to college and got their Masters in Physics? Have you ever questioned why other races become even unreasonably angrier when they come to your village lately? Have you ever wondered what you could do to entertain these visitors further, so they don't vandalize your buildings?

    Wonder no more. Introducing the new and improved Pingfao’s Tesla Theme Park, where even impractical hopes are fulfilled and unrealistic dreams come true! The park includes many innovative exhibits and trails, which are suitable for all races. Our guests often become so occupied with just the preliminary entertainment that they forget to visit the main attractions inside. It is our pleasure to give you a tour of the park through a compilation of fan letters sent to us from all over the world, sharing their personal experience and footage.

Our main focus has been the Wall-Breaker exhibits, since our previous rides became obsolete for their new, sophisticated, college-graduate mindsets. Other exhibits naturally received noticeable improvements as well.

Often times, we simply ignore them, and go straight to the center arena. As soon as we open the doors to main events, swarms of goblins always rush in, and take up all the seats.

    We decided to visit the newly designed Pingfao’s Tesla Theme Park just to see what all the hype is about. The televised premier of the new haunted house exhibit looked interesting.

    As we arrived from Japan, we were pleasantly surprised by the revamped exhibits. At each entrance, there was a maze strip, which redirected our paths towards the corners, no matter which direction we came from. Those corners were reinforced with numerous staggered T-Junctions. We haven’t had that much fun since college, blowing up the joints without ever damaging the main stage. Those pesky goblins were left banging hopelessly against the doors. Here is a group picture of all us enjoying ourselves at the park.

    Entering the newly decorated entrance, we trolled around a long, blue crystallized fence to get to a golden cannon. #selfie #ootd #nofilter

    We walked through a narrow tunnel, which had a fun trampoline nearby. #happy #jump #toohigh #fml

    A bit on the heavier side, we put the exhibit out of order quickly, and had to notify the nearest employees. #oops #diet #gym #dedication #notnow #soon

    The park’s security escorted us to the next attraction, which started suddenly behind us. #angrysecurity #pains

    By the time we got to light show, many of us were exhausted from the long walk, and went back to our hotel. #tired #nomakeup #natural

    We regret that our visit was so short, but are glad that the Giant Trail remained an exciting exhibit of the new Pingfao’s Tesla Theme Park. Hopefully we will get to see the main events next time, but I think we will end up following the trail again.

As we were searching around the perimeter, we noticed a couple of large refreshment barrels tucked in neatly in between 2 buildings. We stopped for drinks, and had such a blast together. I passed out from drinking a bit too much, and when I woke up, all my kids were gone. Thank you Pingfao’s Tesla Theme Park, for helping me lower my child support bills. Here’s a picture of the mentioned blast.

One day, extremely excited about the new Pingfao’s Tesla Theme park, I abandoned my kids, and took a trip there. Not a big fan of fireworks, so I stayed clear from the Air Defenses. As I was hovering around, blissfully looking at the scenery and injured people, I bumped into two large decorative balloons, and was startled by their sudden bursts. I had a brief moment of realization, and realized that I needed to get back to my children. Thank you Pingfao’s Tesla Theme Park, for ending my mid-life crisis, and steering me back to my responsible life.

I did, however, take a vacation to the U.S., away from programming for SuperCell in Finland, to check out the remodeled Pingfao’s Tesla Theme Park. I really appreciate what they did to the World War II historical monument. Glad to see such sentimental and educational values in an amusement park.

    In addition to the fan letters, we had the opportunity to sit down with Chief MrNYNguyen for an interview on his experience at the park.

    Chief MrNYNguyen, along with other satisfied visitors, agreed to have their personal feedback’s and photos displayed to encourage creation of similar parks.

    So, what are you waiting for? For 10 simple payments of $9.99, you can own a 1080p copy of our tutorial video on 3D Blu-ray (3D Glasses not included). Order within the next 30 minutes, and we will even throw in Mufasa’s “The Spooky House of the Dictator” trailer on VCR tape for free. That’s a total value of $100 for only $99.99. WOW!

    We also offer a free stream of our tutorial on our fan page in 720p. Enjoy!


    We have also included a written guide for those who do not own a Blu-ray player.

    1. Centralized Clan Castle

    • Clan Castle is the highest DPS (Damage per Second) defensive structure.
    • Position Clan Castle in the center of the design to prevent enemy from luring CC troops out of defenses’ range.

    2. Segmented Core

    • Position valuable resource storages in a central compartment, segregated by walls.

    3. Optimal Splash Coverage

    • Create two equilateral triangular formations; one for the Mortars, one for the Wizard Towers.
    • Space them out to avoid Lightning Spells taking out 2 splash defenses at once.

    4. Additional valuable buildings

    • Position Air Defenses and other storages in-between Splash Defenses.

    5. Segmented 2nd layer

    6. Optimal Point-Defense Coverage

    • Create two equilateral hexagonal formations; one for the Archer Towers, one for the Cannons.
    • The wall configuration of this particular design only allows square formations.
    • Distribute the two extra Point-Defenses along with the Hidden Teslas evenly.

    7. Anti-Wall Breaker Mechanics

    • Staggered T-Junctions minimize Wall Breakers' splash damage.
    • Maze strips redirect Wall-Breaker to the corners, which have many staggered junctions.
    • Maze strips also funnel troops through small openings, over traps.

    8. Force Spawn

    • Barracks, Army Camps, Collectors, etc. are effective “meat-shields,” which can buy time for your defenses.
    • Position them within range of defenses.

    9. Trap Placement

    • Spring Traps - position at the entrance of each funnel. Giants are prone to go through there before the rest of enemy army.
    • Bombs & Giant Bombs -Tuck into pockets that enemy troops will most likely clump up at.
    • Air Mines as - Tuck as close to the 2nd layer as possible to prevent lone Balloons/Minions from activating them.
    • Air Missiles - Position close to Air Defenses. Enemies often use Lightnings/Raging Giants to take out one Air Defense, then deploy air-units in the same area.

    10. Decorations

    • Visually cover close spawns.
    • Make a World War II monument.
    • Make a ruler!

    F.A.Q.s - Frequently Asked Questions
    1. In the video, why is your base setup differently in some clips?

    2. What program did you use to create the video?

    • Reflector
    • Sony Vegas Pro 9.0
    • Adobe Photoshop CS3

    Simply amazing. All the hard work, tweaking and thought is visible in this design. The wonderful, creative presentation of it all is the icing on the cake. I found myself smiling and chuckling as I read the whole thread, the way you dress up the details make it such an entertaining read. Keep up the great work!

    Thanks buddy! "Finally can rest" is right. The past couple of days of matching Reflector's poor FPS to Vegas's precise timeline have been quite painful.

    As for the vid on the farming version instead of hybrid, both designs are quite similar. The farming version is a bit cleaner looking, so I did the visual on it instead.
