I need help. My HQ 13 base is constantly being flogged by tanks. I try corner. The tanks feed off of my energy at the fringe and then proceed to flank to the back where the HQ is. I try spread out. They still flank. I think that I should try a beach base where all of the defenses are at the front. Any help is appreciated.
Also, place cannons and booms just behind normal buildings. This way it takes slightly longer for the tanks to take aim at them. Make sure they are far enough apart so they cannot be shocked with a single shock. You can use trees to hide some defenses to fool people as well. Check the attacks when you are defeated and try to adjust your base to prevent repeats of the same attack.
Ps Blue statues of course help a lot as well, but i rather like to invest in red and purple
