Builder Hall 9 is the most recent Builder Hall Level and just released – if you just upgraded and look for a base design I was able to fin one that will work quite well.
Here you will find my review of this design as well as my experiences from many Versus Battles that I have played with it and I will show you how it performs against various attacks at 5,000 Trophies.
Time for an update and a fresh base 🙂
The BH9 Design
First of all let’s have a look at the design – you will find a link to directly copy the design at the end of the review 🙂
Since the last base was the first since the release of BH9 and it worked quite well for the first weeks until people started to adapt to the Lava Launcher and also upgraded their troops for Builder Hall 9 we came to the point where we need a new base.
I’ve been testing this new BH9 base for quite some time and it’s really nice to see how well it performed so far – I’d say I have more then 50% defenses with less than 1 Star and a 2-Star is only happening when I upgrade a defense.
That’s why I thought this is the base I want to show you guys 🙂
General Layout Of The Base
The layout of this base isn’t that exciting, to be honest, it’s more like everything is inside the base with two layers of walls around it and a funnel into the Crushers – all basic base design, right?
At first, I didn’t even want to fully test this layout because it didn’t appear to be that strong 😂
The thing is with such a layout, all the troops will get grouped up that much on the inside that splash damage becomes so effective that there’s nothing the attacker can do, especially with the Lava Launcher being extremely effective and troops won’t leave the lava areas because the next buildings are so close.
Believe me guys, you will love this base – I already enjoyed it for several days now in my main account and I love doing Versus Battles just to watch the replays of attackers failing 🙂
To approach this base from ground the attacker will need to open up walls or the troops will find a sudden end in the Crusher. The problem? Well, it’s not easy to open the inside layer of walls since there are a lot fo walls in the outside layer that will simply distract them.
This happens a lot and will lead the ground troops to their ultimate faith, the Crusher 🙂
Also coming from the top won’t change much. Yes, the attacker will avoid the Crusher funnel but unlike BH8 and below, smashing on walls is at BH9 really deadly because the lava launcher will have enough time to soak the troops in lava lakes and they will burn down the supportive troops like Cannon Carts very effectively.
Also, one of my first thoughts was that when the attackers will get several PEKKAs into the base and they will explode, this will cause massive damage because all the buildings are so tight and next to each other. This was something that I was wrong with in the first place because also the Super PEKKA aren’t able to access the base and will chase down the trash buildings on the outside.
Yes, a good attacker can access the base and also get a decent 2-Star but most ground attacks will end up with 35-50% and an army dead in front of the walls 😀
Now let’s have a look at the air attacks…
And when I say air attacks it’s about Drop Ships and Minions all the way at Builder Hall 9. After the release of BH9 this was the only effective way to deal with the Lava Launcher but it seems that it has become more and more the spammy version of people that just don’t want to adapt to the Lava Launcher – spam all Minions, drop the Drop Ships and the Battle Machine and let’s see how far we can get, right? 😉
This strategy is, as simple and easy as it is to use it, sometimes pretty effective because there are many troops and much damage with some tanks at the same time.
Still, this base works nicely against them.
It’s hard to prevent them to get the Builder Hall but at this point, the Mega Tesla and the Air Bomb Factory will wipe them out and normally the attacker won’t get 50% so no 2-Star.
Attacking from the other side might get them the 50% but not the Builder Hall so you should do fine against these attacks when you can score decent 2-Star attacks in Versus Battles 🙂
