I’m sure many of you not once heard a catchphrase “the best defense is a good offense”! And I can tell you that many Boom Beach players follow this rule. They don’t install blue statues (main purposes of which are increasing of the defensive buildings health and defensive building damage) at all. Instead of defensive statues such players install maximal amount of statues aimed at increasing of attack power (red ones that increase troops health and damage power and dark ones that increase Gunboat energy). In general these players are focused only at attack and defense of own base doesn’t worried them at all. But whether such a strategy is correct? This is everyone decides for himself.
As for me I don’t belong to the category of players who are focused only on the attack.
At one time I was keen on playing chess and now I adhere to the principles of this game, namely: “guaranty of victory is the successfully built defense”. And as a rule I have from 4 to 5 “ice” statues on my base all the time. 🙂
I’m sure that many of you think that is too much! But judge for yourself, the Base without any of blue statues almost has no any chances to survive and repel the attack. Accordingly after each successful enemy attack we lose resources and victory points and it’s becomes much harder to accumulate them! Thus in order to save resources and accumulate them for upgrading of some building we need to stay online as long as possible. But in case when we have defensive statues we can boost them with power powder and get out from the Game without having to worry that all resources would be stolen. As a rule, almost nobody attacks my island when all my blue statues are boosted with power powder. I think You will agree that 5 or 6 boosted blue statues holding back the urge to attack such island at least until the expiration of power powder action.
And one more thing – good defense it’s an extra diamonds for you and extra intels for your TF!
And instead of an epilogue. Let’s see how many blue statues have installed the top 5 players in the world on their islands:
As you can see four of five top players are focused on defense!
Good Luck, my friends!
