Will you dominate the archipelago with countless amounts of troops, create the rock solid dream beach that crushes your enemies, or achieve in BOTH?? Only the wisest and most intelligent commanders will succeed in this. Do you have what it takes?
In order to easily defeat mercenary and blackguard bases, conquer in operations, seize resource bases, and bring home mass amounts of dough after a couple rounds of Dr. Terror, you’re going to need a solid offense. There are four main points of offensive strategy that can be used, configured, and upgraded in many different variations.
These points include: landing crafts, gunboat energy, troop level, and gunboat ability level. Every time each of these are upgraded, your offense becomes more versatile and efficient. The rewards for having a solid offense are huge amounts of loot. Focusing on offense only is recommended for very active players.
Being able wield a mighty army and crush your opponents with ease is especially fun!! However, it can leave you vulnerable to attacks as well. The more you destroy your opponents, the higher your victory point value goes up. The higher your victory point value, the tougher your enemies get.
This doesn’t only relate to the enemies that appear on your archipelago, but to the difficulty of enemies that attack your home base! Due to this, not having some kind of defense could be a great disadvantage. You’ll not only have the hard-earned loot you have stored vulnerable, but you won’t be able to hold your victory point value or receive diamond or intel rewards whenever an enemy raids your base.
Imagine logging onto Boom Beach after a nice sleep and finding multiple replays of the puny enemies who failed to raid you, and then happily collecting the diamond and intel reward. Trust me, it’s like Christmas morning. Having a solid defense for your beach is great for protecting your loot, your victory point value, and your resource bases. On top of that, after the 2015 May update, you’ll be able to crush Lt. Hammerman’s forces and be able to make incredible prototype defensive tools!
Having the reassurance that almost anyone who attacks your base will wish they never did, while knowing that your loot and victory point value are safe and sound, is a big advantage for saving huge amounts of loot for massive upgrades. However, this is a very passive play style and it may be difficult to raid blackguard and Dr. Terror bases if you need the extra loot. It may be pretty embarrassing in operations if your offense can hardly earn that much force points for your task force. If you lose one of your resource bases, it might be extremely hard to get back. And last but not least you won’t be earning as much crystals and power powder as an offensive player.
To have an overall plan of exactly what you want and to carry it out.
To manage your loot and prepare for big upgrades, and to expand your campaign as a successful commander.
There is no exact way to “win” or “lose” in Boom Beach. But the effort and time you put in it will determine the rewards you receive. Having a suitable balance between offense and defensive strategy has the potential to gain the most rewards.
Boom Beach is a competitive, challenging game in which you control the path of your campaign. Play smart and have fun!
