    | [Inkstar] A TH9 Gold/DE Farming Base |


    Version 3 Released with Post-Update Meta!
    Note: Version 3 has all the features of the other versions, with the TH inside.

    Introduction
    Hello, and welcome to my fifth base design thread in this subforum!

    This time, I'm presenting "Inkstar", a design that was based off of a doodle I performed in math class. However, it took a significant amount of tweaking to reach its current and likely final state. Also, I feel like mentioning that this design narrowly avoided a name change to "Sleeping Sun" at the last minute.

    As a side note, I have decided to place walls only screenshots where "Walls & Traps" ones should be, due to me deciding that it look much better in this case

    The Base
    Note: The XBows are outside because they were upgrading. They should be in the core
    NV1 - With Everything:


    V1 - Walls Only


    V1.5 - With Everything


    V1.9 - With Everything


    V2 - With Everything


    V2 - Walls Only


    Base Mechanics
    Like every single one of my other designs, Inkstar features a giant loop (and general troop loop) where the buildings will funnel the troops around the base.

    It also features a simple set of traps and pathing in case the troops do enter the inner layer.

    Inkstar also feature Anti-WB nets, which work as shown in this diagram from my Stream of Consciousness thread (I'm too lazy to make another)

    Inkstar also features the following set of minor features to keep the DE safe.
    1. Anti-AQ Core
    2. High DPS Core
    3. Many Buildings & Skele-Traps to stall troops
    4. Tiny Wall
    Compartments to stall WB's
    5. Anti-EQ (no EQ spell can open up core & outside of base)

    Troop Matchup / Pros & Cons

    Barch/BAM (8.5/10)
    The WT's do most of the heavy hitting against this army, but will usually be assisted by the troop loop, which will stall troops hopefully enough for the raid to end prematurely.

    GiBarch (8/10)
    The giant loop does what the name implies, and paths the giants (and other troops) around the base. At the end, the troops will run out of time, or enter the base in a large clump to be taken out by the WT's

    GiHealer (7.5/10)
    Since the AD's can target the giant loop, most healers should fall within a short span of time. If not, the loop will act the same way it would with GiBarch.

    LaLoon/Loonion (6/10)
    Inkstar was built with no intentions to stop air raids, but somehow managed to stop 2 air attacks. This is due to the fact that minions will likely still fly around the base, or be stalled enough for the tanking troops to be taken out.

    GoWiXX (4.5/10)
    The giant loop works identically for golems, which means that the surrounding structures MUST be cleared for the attack to funnel inward correctly.

    Pros
    Anti-AQ core
    Unlureable CC
    Hi-DPS Core
    Giant (and other troops) Loop
    Trap "split"
    Anti-WB Nets
    Walls Staggered around core
    Troop Deployment Pushed Far Back
    Can spawn Cauldrons / Trees
    Looks Smexy


    Cons

    No Concentration of Damage in Giant Loop
    No DGB's
    Mortars used for funneling, not defense
    Jump / EQ Spells Can Open up Core
    Often Gives up other Storages for DE Protection (Mostly Elixir)


    Replays
    Note:Probably out of order









    Replays From Ayrtons, an assistant tester



    Conclusion
    To me, this is the best base I've ever made, after 2 months of careful tweaks and defeats. And, if you didn't catch it from the intro, the original was based off of one of my doodles in math class. It's also probably been seen by half of the people reading this, after I showed it in the BDJ over and over.


    Thanks To:
    Ayrtons (tester)
    M4XTheGreat (putting this base in his sig)
    My Clanmates (encouragement)
    Members of the BD Community (encouragement)

    That's all for now, thanks for the read, and all the best to you!

    Thumbs Up Xbows?

    First!!!



    First of all, looks amazing- may give it a try once my TH upgrades to 9 (1 day!!!). However, why are the Xbows way outside of the base? Or is this meant to be an 8.5 base. Anyways, looks good

    Oops!

    The XBows were upgrading.
    I'll edit that in, thanks!

    And TY for the compliment as well.

    Third!!!!!

    Analysis in a sec.......

    Edit: You ever consider what happenes if a smart artacker breakd the ring, uses eq on the core, then sends 20 giants in to wreck the core?

    Other than that, great laby base! promptly steals the idea to use in my own base

    The ring is very reminiscent of Shad's Lotus: http://forum.supercell.net/showthrea...red-Moat-Vault

    Very aesthetic design and intriguing moat-like core. Looks very solid, only thing that isn't too great is the fact that the DE is reachable by the queen. But great job on the base as it looks solid against a lot of typical farming comps

    Not a bad design!

    The core is definitly DE Snipable by AQ if she gets close enough. Also if the exterior defensives are cleared it can funnel troops right to the core because of the their placement leading there.

    Is it?
    I've never seen a queen snipe the DE, so I'm not sure if you eyeballed it correctly.

    Yep, I may have forgotten to mention what can happen, but it's harder than it looks to break the AI loop.
