This is the most important part of building a base. The spot you build your base will make or break your survival, especially in tough situations. Here are some useful tips for selecting a good building spot...
- Always have safe access to all three basic resources and two good farming spots (for large bases only)
- Build your base near an edge or corner of the map to minimize attack angles. This can also allow you to minimize wall usage as one side's worth of walls gets completely taken out of the equation.
- Build your base upstream to provide a quick getaway if things get rough. I can’t tell you how many times this has saved my life.
- Scout where most other bases are and build yours far away.
