Things you need to understand about designing your base.
101 New BLITZ TARGET option
Published on 5 Oct 2016
This week Kixeye has launched the BLITZ feature. In a nutshell, you can buy FM points, based on your last hit against a lvl 102 or 109 target, for the same price your repair would cost you - minimum 3 coins.
Again, I think all top players have this puzzled solved already, this video is there to help those still struggling. If you don't have all the tech, remember, it's a journey, so take some steps, and move from being easily wiped everytime, to at least hurting the attacker, to winning some, to winning most battles, and have fun along the way! Most tech can be obtained from FM and campaigns, some from hitting DUBs or Drac Bases. August is a hull raid, a chance to get a defense hull, or a Punisher, or a thermal ship.
Defending against Vendettas AND Revenges
Published on 24 Jul 2016
A few months ago, I published a vid about defending against Revenges. This is an updated video, showing how to improve your base against BOTH Revenges and Vendettas. Which turrets to use, how to cover your base, which ships to place in guard. In the end, there's a hit on my base, done with a fleet of 5 Vendettas, showing how defense works. Thanks Peckerhead, for doing the hit, and thanks Don B., aka Gixxer, for the original base layout months ago - I've changed it quite a bit, but still based off of yours!
Don't focus on copying the base layout, as it won't work unless you can replicate exactly all turrets and ships. Instead, adapt the principles to your own layout. I don't post base layout, and exact configuration of each ship and turret on purpose, so you can come up with your own, using the tech you have.
How to Build a Vanquisher or two
Published on 18 Jul 2016
Where I discuss options to be used in the new defender ship, the Vanquisher, the trade-offs, and the reason behind my choices. Your choices can be different than mine, based on your base layout, how many Vanqs you build, and what you have available to use.
EDIT: It was brought to my attention the field generated by the Vanquisher affects its own resonance capacitor, so even if you only build 1, it's worth using the capacitor. Thanks Lucas, for pointing it out!

Have you have ever pondered on how to calculate the 25% base bubble pad in your Battle Pirates base. If so this Clinic will switch it from an elitist 'Black Art' to a run of the mill checksum.
Throwing the Kitchen Sink at new Forsaken Mission
Published on 23 May 2016
Where I hit new Forsaken Mission targets, from level 45 to 97, using the following fleets: Crusaders, DNX, Heavy Cruisers, tank + DNX, tank + Drac Carrier, tank + Citadels, all Punishers. All builds included, along with some tactics. Enjoy!
