Ok, here's my recipe for today...
Everybody has at somepoint been attacked by higher level players who came to your base only for some looting. It is clear that, when i have little resources i'm attacked by only a level above and when i got lot's of resources i'm attacked by 2 levels up (during conflicts they attack me becouse i'm an easy prey for lv9-10). Being currently at lv8 has been the most unpleasing lv until now for me and i'm attacked every single day more than one time by lv10 players, some frm the top squads:
Not shure why the developers allow sucha bad matchmaking. Tyred of being robbed, i searched for the best layout i could for a lv8 base (Thx Jayjack for the design) and started revenging the enemyes. I always check they're bases to see what of interesting is there and yesterday i prepared a "Revenging/looting troops" and gone no matter the results. My recommendations for those who are trying to pick back they're loot:
This was the victim, he made a looting at my base with 3 At-At lv10, one for each shield and some troops;
A guy called Banderas...
1) Be prepared to Loose some medals as you are attacking a higher lv player. if you are in a conflict, the lost points may be bad for the result. So it's better outside the conflicts.
2) Carefully choose what you will ask for your SC. At lv8 i requested 1 jug + 1 hail + 1 heavy for a 32 SC capacity. Promptly donated from my squad fellows at Jedi-Master's.
3) Make 2 gamorreans to break into the heart of the base putting them a little separate to trigger the sonic turrets first and receive some fire. when they die they're axle will weaken everything. After that i release Luke with one medical droid behind him and put the above described SC troops to deactivate the shieds and attack a bit to the core. that's only that becouse the objective is not into the base core, but arround the base. If you put all those troops at once, the sonic turrets are likelly to kill em all. So after the gamorreans, the jug takes the shiled while luke receive the fire and the hail attacks the turrets. The heavy soldier attacks the closest thing and may not survive too long. The key is to make Luke receive the hits whyle the hail and heavy attack. It is a small composition to attack a high lv base core but with some air help as soon as the shield fall will eventually let them destroy the HQ, but that is not necessary for the looting revenge.
4) And all the rest of the troops what you will make?
Well, i like to add to this combo 2 Snipers and two medical droids for them, some basic rebells and a LOT OF "TWI'LEKS". see that this is a mercenary attack? Well, lets describe they're action. The Snipers would help with Droidekas and SC troops if there are any. I try to call the SC troops outside always that possible, if there are bikers for example let them come outside and give them 2 Twileks to blew themselves whyle the ss hit from far. if there are no enemy troops walking arround, put the snipers at the same point where you had previously put the SC to break in and they will help a lot attacking the core from far away and the 2 medical droids will be safe behind them healing rapid fire and mortar turrets incoming fire against them making them last much longer. That whas what i made in the described attack and they helped clearing the Core while Luke, the heavy and the Hail were on the heat being trounced. The combo did manage to destroy almost the entire core in that case.
And the Twileks? Well, i put them arround the base, some in the breaking point and some in the side axis of the base upon the resource buildings to burn em all. They do not need medical droids to heal and cost only four each, so you may attack with 10-12 of them at the same time and as they go burning and blowing, so will the structures arround them. Is beaultifoul to watch a big base on fire he he he. As they die from the distracted turrets firing, Luke is inside making a havoc with a hail behind him.
The results may vary if there are SC and droidekas or not guarding the base, but checking frequently will make you catch some enemyes without they're pants at some moments and with a lot of loot, making the risk of a defeat worthy. I wish i had the video of the battle to post but only some photos. The result was my best looting until now at my current lv8:
