So now, we are at COC Builder Hall Level BH-8 Base and we need a strong defense and trophy pushing base for 5500+ trophies. At BH-7, we had a strong base at the core. Now at BH-8, we also need to focus on outer defenses such as traps, mines and hidden tesla. When we progress from BH-7 to Builder Hall level BH-8 base, new buildings such as Mega Tesla, Higher level Spring and Push traps are unlocked. So, we need a new base to effectively use mega tesla with increased builder base area.

There are three type bases at Builder Base 8. The first put a strong emphasis on the ground attack with Multi Mortar, Giant Cannon, Tesla, and Roaster. They are used strategically to cover all types of attacks on the builder hall. The Second Base type makes strong use of Tesla, in the core of the base. Mega Tesla is placed right at the heart of the base. Hidden Tesla’s are placed to surround and protect it in the middle of the base. This arrangement creates a round shape base, with Mortar and Roaster providing front and rear defense.
The third Layout is a compact base type, in which key defenses are stuffed in a tight spot. All of the designs I have shared here are Rhombus type. This is because square shape layouts are very easy to overrun and face tough time defending against canon carts.
You must have also noticed that the bases contain no compartments. This is because bases with a lot of cells, are weak against Air attacks, as they inherently cover less surface area. The square shape bases face the same issue. They are also not good at channeling and funneling troop movements.

Here in this Rhombus shaped base, the opponent will have a hard time entering and deploying all of his troops in a specific entry point. His troops will be funneled and divided, which will weaken his attack.

Notice the push trap placement and its orientation. Any enemy troop that will enter from the push trap entry point will be redirected toward hidden Tesla. Tesla is further covered with canons and Crusher. This arrangement will engage two or three defenses onto the enemy attack.
