This week I wanted a more compact base for BH5 that also separates the Builder Hall from the rest of the base. The ring has multiple smaller compartments to mess with troop AI and also make it harder for the attacker to get the troops into the core area of this base.

I had a similar layout lately in the higher Builder Hall levels and wanted to modify it to test if it will also work at BH5 – and it does. In fact, it worked so well that I want to share this layout with you here as no other BH5 attacker was able to 3-Star this base.

This BH5 base here uses a different approach compared to what you normally see at Builder Hall 5 with lots of smaller compartments. You have the outside perimeter that requires a bunch of troops to actually funnel and then slow down attacking troops by the walls. This worked really well when I used this base lately.

I know this kind of base layout dominate the defending meta at BH5 for a long time but the reason is that it’s simply that effective in eating away troops for building the funnel and forcing the attacker to play it really well to have a decent chance for the higher percentage 2-Star. I tested this base and it really worked well unless the attacker was a lot higher Builder Hall, but there’s no BH5 base in the world that can save you from that… Really enjoyed this one here.

This base here features a nice outside perimeter that is designed to distract ground troops from getting into the core, giving Bombers a bad time and ultimately eating time from the clock while attacking troops suffer more damage before they are able to get inside. On the inside, there’s a Crusher waiting for them to make it even more complicated to go for the 2-Star.

We’ve seen such layouts at Builder Hall 5 a lot and that’s because they are so effective against most players that, for whatever reason, not seem to be able to find a way to break them efficiently. You have basically two bulkheads on the frontside and the backside of the base that takes time to break through and by the time these sections got cleared, the attacker normally lost that many troops that he won#t be able to get the Builder Hall anymore.

Diamond base? Lame? Well, not the most creative defesive approach at BH5, I admit. But the results are good because so many attackers at this Builder Hall level simply spam their troops in and hope for the best – and in this case the best is a 1-Star, nothing more. The outside perimeters keep the troops off your core long enough to get most troops down and the Battle Machine won’t be able to get far enough into the base to get the Builder hall because of the Crusher and the leftover defenses.

This is a slightly fine-tuned version of the last BH5 base with some minor tweaks I made during the past week to get the results even better. I didn’t wanted to actually design a fresh base when this one is still working so well.

Front open bases like this are getting more and more popular at BH5 for the reason that it’s really hard to break into the base. The attacker needs to deal with a load of buildings and defenses on the frontside and then needs to get through the Crusher while basically all defenses will let their damage rain on the troops to get the 2-Star. Attacking from the backside makes it easier to get the Builder Hall but normally lacks in percentage to reach the 2-Star.

This BH5 base here has a really interesting approach to deal with attackers with open sides that will give the attacker a hard time to think which one will work best. The back entrance looks easiest but wll funnel troops to the outsides, the fron entrance with the Crusher is not really attractive and the corner open wall section is really nasty to funnel. Overall, most attackers failed against this base miserably.

This base here uses a more practical approach which is basically letting all defensive power rain down on the attacker so it’s an all-in attack that invites the attacker to spam but will end in troops going to the sides and failing on the DPS your defenses have.

Builder Hall 5 Base – May 25th, 2020

This is the Builder Hall 5 version of a layout structure that became more and more popular because working really effective and consists of wall paths leading towards the Builder Hall but using the poor AI to soak troops into the Crusher and the Spring Traps there and not let them directly attack the Builder Hall.

Along with the outside compartments that make it also hard to funnel all troops into the core area and a well-covered area by all defenses make this base absolutely worth using.

I really liked that base layout that is different from what you normally see and tested it with good results. The problem with the diamond base styles is that people start to know how they can beat it and an unusual layout always challenges them on another level. Here you have the Builder Hall in the middle but two sections on the sides.

The Crusher protects one entry point and the trash buildings always funnel troops away from the straight path towards the Builder Hall and there’s no chance to avoid the traps in there. Results have been pretty well with this Builder Hall 5 base.

Builder Hall 5 Base – May 1st, 2020

bh5 base may 1st

Here’s a Builder Hall 5 layout that did quite well recently while testing it and defended effectively against ground attacks with Archers and Barbarians and also Baby Dragons.

The Builder Hall is in the center and for ground troops the Crusher position is really nasty to deal with, especially with the traps around it that makes it really frustrating to even deploy troops in waves into it correctly. Baby Dragons had problems to get enough trash buildings to get the air defenses and lost already so much of them that they couldn’t get the Builder Hall, especially with that Crusher position.

Builder Hall 5 Base – April 13th, 2020

bh5 base april 17th 2020

The bottom part of this base is working great against ground troops because they get soaked into the funnel and land directly in the Crusher there.

Baby Dragon attacks can get critical at BH5 but the Air Bomb at the bottom side is pretty expensive to clear with the Elixir Storage on the side and the Firecrackers are loaded on the other side so even there you have plenty of defensive power against Baby Dragons.

This BH5 base here holds up pretty well against all kinds of Barbarians or Archer attacks that come for the annoying attacks that take ages but are hard to defend at Builder Hall 5. There’s not many buildings they can reach so they will have to start making them walk longer distances and this will cost them so much time that they will time out in the long run.

This Builder Hall 5 base here has a really cool way how the traps are set up to make sure that the attacker can’t avoid it and the compartment structure is also nice to hold back any attack with mass troops easily plus the Crusher funnel on top of the base is really handy and will give the attacker a hard time.

Builder Hall 5 Base – February 2020

bh5 base february 1st 2020

I used this base here for quite some time now and found it to hold up well against most attacking strategies, unless the attcker has a higher Builder Hall, but in that case no base layout in the world can save you the victory… Builder Hall 5 can be brutal sometimes and the best you can do is to focus on the battles that are in your hand and try to not get demotivated too much when a BH6 attacks you and crushes your base, you simply lack of the defenses to defend that.

Builder Hall 5 Base – January 2020

best bh5 base january 2020

This BH5 base s a diamond base (don’t roll your eyes, these bases are so common because they simply work best at Builder Hall 5…), so you have an open-sided core area covered by two lines of walls.

This layout works nicely because you give the attacker a hard time to funnel troops to the core. and control where they will hit the traps. Most of the time you will deal with Giants combined with Archers/Barbarians and occasional Minions, a mix of Barbarians and Archers without Giants or the classical mass Barbarians or mass Archer attacks.

Let’s start taking a closer look at attacks featuring Giants. The nice thing here is that the attacker will either come from the side or the top with their Giants, sending them into the immediate death at the Crusher with the Spring Traps. Attacking from the bottom is only possible with Bombers, otherwise, the Giants will ignore the walls completely with the double-layer and also run towards the sides.
But using Bomber will reveal one problem for the attacker (if he’s BH5 as well) – he is missing forces to crush the core area towards the Builder Hall with all the Cannons, Archer Towers etc. and chances are good that he will run out of troops before he can reach the Builder Hall.

So attacking without Giants… Still a similar problem. Attacking from the top is plain too risky and will often fail dramatically for the attacker so he needs to open up the bottom of the base with Bomber to send in his Barbarians. The problem here is that he also needs to clear the Clock Tower and Star Laboratory (costs at least 10 Barbarians) to send troops into the center of the base. The problem here is that this won’t be enough to get the Builder Hall and percentage for the 2-Star so some troops have to clear on the sides as well leaving this a pretty risky move for the attacker to take.

Last but not least the Baby Dragon attacks that are pretty strong against Builder Hall 5 bases. Haven’t seen that much but when they attack they try to avoid the Air Bombs at the top and approach either from the side or the bottom. Both options aren’t that well as the sides will make them run into the Air Bombs pretty soon and this will cost them too many Baby Dragons. Attacking from the bottom will send the Baby Dragons into the Firecrackers all the time so they barely make it to the Builder Hall. The attacker’s only option is to try getting the Builder Hall with the Battle Machine but most of the there’s not enough trash destroyed so the Battle Machine will get soaked into the Crusher while getting hit by the Archer Towers.
