Today I have some tips and tricks for the Empire players who are finding it difficult to defend their bases against the Rebels who keep pouring the Wookies on them, and top them with some Med Droids and ice the cake with Chewy. I must admit that I am one of those players, being a rebel, but during my tons of PvP battles, I managed to find out that some types of defenses and base layouts work a lot better than others and the secret is the correct choice of defensive buildings.
In the end, there’s actually one type of base that I always skip when the game suggests me to attack it. And after speaking with my Squad mates, they tend to do the same unless it’s a revenge we’re talking and something has to be done.
So what’s that base that works best against Rebels and their Wookie attacks in Star Wars: Commander? It’s an all-mortar base, or at least a base with a ton of Mortar defenses, and a few Burst Towers. At least that’s what a Rebel general (myself) is saying!
Many players still consider the Mortars as a bad choice when it comes to defending a base because they are slow (even slower than the Wookies), but the truth is that with some smart placement and overlapping fire, Mortars are deadly and will keep the rebels away. With a level 6 Headquarters and the troops maxed out, I am still finding it extremely difficult to get three stars against all-mortar bases, and that’s the reason why now I simply skip them unless they have an obscenely large amount of resources luring me in.
If you are afraid to go all in with an all mortar base in Star Wars: Commander, then you could try a mortar / Burst Fire Turret combo, with the latter representing about 20 to 30 percent of your towers. Make sure that you have them nicely positioned, with overlapping fire and cover for each angle and you will soon see that Rebels attacking you will lose, while the number of incoming attacks will decrease greatly.
So, there you have it: a Rebel’s opinion on the best defense against Wookie attacks in Star Wars: Commander. It’s true that some players will go all in with Vehicles knowing that this is a strategy that many players are adopting, but Wookies are still the first choice for most Rebel players out there and things won’t change too soon, so I still believe that you are covered if you make this choice!
