Conflicting Ratio with Y Shaped Wizard Tower
Only read this after you have read my [20 Grid Concept] and or my [Characteristics of War Bases] or you won't understand.
I've explained in my [Metaki #6 - Ovaki] the reason why I'm testing out this set up, and the weakness to this set up is it is too big of a compartment. There is a reason behind this though. If you look at this image, you can see 3 other types of ratios I've tried to do but they all have their advantages and disadvantages.
Green: the 4-2 5-4 Ratio
In this ratio, it offers three layers of buildings, allows double giant bomb to exist, more layers, you can put a tesla there so it works well with wizard tower. The problems with this ratio is that it a HUGE waste of walls, only teslas are the ones that can fit inside.
Purple: The 3-3 5-4 Ratio
In this ratio, It offers out a more decent design element of creating more layers as well as placement of storages on the second section. Problem with this is it is almost like a revival of the "Hog Ring"
Red: THe 3-4 5-4 Ratio
The red ratio is alittle better when it comes to solving the problems as well as it offers a DGB location. Problem lies with the fact that the wall requirements is almost the same or even more than the green ratio, and also the fact the wall conflicts with where the clan castle is. This ratio isn't the worse but it still has some flaws.
No matter which ratio is picked, they all offer 2 problems. 1. They use up alot of walls. 2. There is no space for storages. This is the most troubling feature when it comes to trying out this set up with the Air defense and the wizard tower's placement conflicting with each other.
Yellow: experimental 4-7-4 ratio
In the end, I naturally went with a 4-7-4 ratio which allowed fewer walls to be used, storages be to put, as well as DGB location as the second layer. The cost of this setup is that I lose the tertiary layer and more room for enemy golems to move about.
In conclusion, I'm still experimenting with the ratios when it comes to walls and the Y shaped wizard tower set up. It's my current path towards creating an Anti-lavaloon base and this Y shaped set up could lead to a dead end, unless I'm able to find the perfect ratio, or manage to hybrid it with another ratio,. The outlooks of this path to be honest isn't the best so I would not recommend anyone else experimenting with this design.
