These tips are probably more favorable for advanced players, but beginners can give it a try as well. Your defense is a crucial part of the game, and your defense strategy determines how your battles turn out.

1. Simulated Attack Cheat
Here is a genius method to go for an attack on any base you like without actually losing your troops. Here is what you do: Choose any base to attack and when the battle begins, swipe up to bring forth the control center on your iPhone and enable Airplane Mode.
What it does is that it cuts the Wi-Fi or data connection without stopping the game. You can go about proceeding with the attack without your progress being saved. You can test your strategy at this point. When the battle is over, and you have seen the outcome of your plan, quit the game. Now turn back off the Airplane Mode. Now actually go for it with the tested strategy or you can do it again until you master a good way.
2. Watch battle replays
You can continuously improve your base if you take a look again at the attacks from enemies and see where your effort lacked. You can learn from the mistakes and have a better performance in the future battles.
You already know that there are no walls, so protection is your number one priority. You can surround your buildings and defenses and also with mines. Your aim is to make it impossible for your enemy to get to the command center so the more the hindrances, the better.
3. Go for the resource bases
Resource bases are those who can yield wood or ore. You should aim for these stations to increase these resources back at your home. There is no wood ever enough in this game so you will need whatever you can get. You should upgrade the radar consistently to explore a map as comprehensive as possible.
4. Warriors are your ultimate weapon to victory
After you have reached level 7 for your Headquarter, you can recruit Warriors. It is a powerful and useful unit which you will not regret getting. In those fierce battles, these Warriors can prove quite a valuable asset. They have a massive attack rating and they also get hit points with their blows. However, the low HP can make them quite vulnerable. Here is where your strategy takes effect. One approach could be to send out a Tank to start fires while the Warrior destroys the enemy. You can also use the healing power up to give more chance to fight. This is a proven strategy, and no base can withstand such a powerful attack. You are welcome!
5. Use Trees to conceal your defenses
It would be optimal to position the mortars and rocket launchers behind trees on your home base as well as the resource islands. Why? It would be tough for troops to find them or reach them for that matter. They will be able to launch more attacks before they are taken down.
6. Scout before attacks
It is a good practice to scout before attacking a base. It will cost you nothing but the outcome would be great. You will be able to see if it is even worth attacking a base. Many bases will probably have fewer defense towers, but that does not make them an easy chase. These towers, although few, could be of high level and scouting can give you this crucial information. You need to estimate your losses before the attack. If it is too much of a loss, why go for it?
7. Take it slow in attacking mercenary bases
Mercenary bases are the bases of other players, and it is recommended to avoid attacking them too quickly. You might want to rush to attack them to get resources perhaps for some upgrade. This is where you need not rush. You can scout around and monitor and only attack when the resources they have are at maximum levels. Now if you attack, the benefit would be maximized.
8. Never rush to get resources from boats
The resources on these ships are safe from your enemies. If you have ample resources, it is unnecessary to go about collecting these to keep them for an awkward time when you run out of resources. They will always be there so you can utilize your time in other things. When push comes to shove, you can go and collect the resources.
9. Keep a distance between the defensive buildings
Battleship attacks will rather quickly destroy your defensive buildings if they are too near each other. Keep a decent and safe distance between them. The attacking entity should only be able to fire rocket for each of your defensive buildings as it will not be damaged more with only one attack.
Now that you know the tricks for a proper defense implement these and make your base the strongest and most protected base out there. Some of the strategies will only work on advanced levels so first get to those levels and then go ahead. The strategy is the key. Just like with real games, the strategy can pretty much flip the game and take you to victory in no time. As discussed before, there are no walls, so it is up to you how you strategize your borders.
