    Kraken's Crevice | A Pre-X Bow and X Bow Upgrading Farming Base

    Hey guys, so I am back again with another base design: Krakens Crevice.

    >Introduction And Goal
    >Krakens Crevice: The Base
    >What it defends against
    >Base Mechanics
    >Pros And Cons
    >Roles Of Each Defense

    >Logs


    Introduction:

    Welcome to my base design thread, my third on the forums. This base is a Pre-XBow and X-Bow upgrading base and with the addition of the fourth mortar, that was added too. So if you are reading this, I am assuming your either a new TH9 or quite a way into TH9 and upgrading X-Bows. The aim of the base was to allow for no more than half of the resources to be taken without the best defense at TH9. So, I basically had to fend off TH9 attacks without a primary TH9 defense.


    Krakens Crevice: The Base

    Here is where I will showcase the base itself.

    What the attacker sees:


    The Base With Everything:


    Clan Castle Radius:


    Traps:


    Walls:

    So that is the base. If you would like to see anymore pictures of the base, just comment and ask.


    What it defends against

    This base is aimed to defend against:
    •Giant-Based Armies
    •Hogs
    •Balloonion
    •Barch
    •BAM

    I have yet to face attacks such as:
    •GoWiPe
    •GoWiWi
    •GoWiWiPe
    •HoLoWiWi
    •Mass Dragon


    Pros And Cons:

    Pros:
    -Good Funneling
    -Anti-Giant
    -Good Splash Coverage
    -Clan Castle only lurable by hogs
    -Double Giant Bombs to deal with hogs
    -Storages spread out, making it more difficult to take more than 1 of each
    -Symmetrical, looks sharp and dangerous
    -Tesla Lures
    -Unique compartmentless second-layer
    -Staggered junctions, few junctions too I might add
    -Pre-X Bow compatible, obviously
    -Excellent trap placement, cant be tested by a single lone giant
    -Quad mortar coverage, strikes fear into any Barcher

    Cons:
    -Elixir storages semi-exposed
    -Teslas not in or around core can be a waste
    -Heavily reliant on traps
    -AD could possibly be more protected
    -Barbarian King could be placed deeper in the base instead of on the outskirts
    -Open second layer could possibly be a weakness against high level heroes


    Base Mechanics:

    This base has a number of features designed to stop certain army compositions and help the base to achieve its primary goal of protecting resources.

    Anti-Hog Mechanism And Skeleton Trap
    I have included double giant bombs in case of a rare hog attack. However, it also serves another goal. Behind the trap I have included the range if the skeleton trap. The skeletons will lure any troops without a preferred target to the double giant bombs. I am hoping that these are archers or barbarians, as this can take a rage quantity at one time. This also prevents archers coming from the cannon side taking the elixir storage too easily.

    Giant Funneling Mechanisms
    The giants are funneled to the teslas. The teslas then lead to another defense, the air defense. Howeve, between these two in the narrow path a spring trap await, which will fling 3 giants at one time. Depending on the side, another spring trap may wait when they go to the wizard tower. This funnel also sieves out troops. Troops with no preferred target will go to the gold storage, which is covered by a bomb and wizard tower. This can take down large hordes. And since the funnel is in the second layer, all point defenses can concentrate on taking down the large HP giants.



    Conclusion:

    So if you have read this far, thank you and I hope you enjoyed it. Please leave a comment, all constructive critiscm is greatly appreciated.

    I would like to thank Avernicus for all the help with base designing and this base.
    TheShadow626 for his support and help in the base.
    Eddie56 because he is my clanmate
    Gero, welcome to the Infinite Base Design Team!

    This base is of my own creation, so please do not copy. The artistic image of the kraken was not made by me, credits to the creator for that fabulous piece.

    Defense Logs

    Here I will be posting the defense logs I have collected with the base. Every defense had the clan castle filled with usually archers, traps always armed. Should also be noted that the fourth was not active during any defense logs, so with it the logs should be better.

    Key Things To Look For:
    -Hero Levels: They make a huge difference
    -Troop Levels: Gives you an idea on the TH of the attacked
    -Troops: Are they using dragons? Are they using PEKKAS? Troops can tell the ferocity of the attack and strategy
    -Spells: Did the attacker use any spells? If so, how many and what level?


    LIAMO6 Attack. Storages: 1 Elixir. DE storage: No


    Zomco Attack. Storages: 1 of each. DE Storage: No


    Nic Attack. Storages: 1 Elixir. DE Storage: No


    Macedawg Attack. Storages: 2 Elixir, 1 Gold. DE Storage: No


    Mixture of Asian Characters Attacks. Storages: 2 Elixir. DE Storage: No


    Haif Attack. Storages: 2 of each. DE Storage: No


    Gotjah Attack: Storages: 2 of each. DE Storage: Yes. Should also be noted that I had 250k golf available in pumps, so I had 600k gold available for this attacker.

    So that concludes the logs I have gathered.

    Move onto the next section for reviews and forum base testers logs.
