Note: This is for Noobs who dunno what is an NEC or badly placed NECs
What is a NEC?
A NEC stands for Never Ending Chain. A NEC consists of a circle of General Buildings around the core. A NEC is a nightmare for your anything monsters(example:D.A.V.E.), distracting them.
Type of NECs
NEC: The most-seen NEC because you don't get loot from these buildings.
NECoRG: Never Ending Chain of Resource Gatherers(Harvesters). The second most popular NEC. Was used for defending PIBs(Puttied Invisible Brains, outdated) or PG(Puttied Grokus) and Krallen.
NECoB: Never Ending Chain of Blocks. In pure words, lure blocks. A yard MUST have a NECoB in their yard or it isn't a yard(just kidding, it will make your base vulnerable to eye-ras)
NECoT: Never Ending Chain of Towers. NECoT works well against PPX(don't need to explain) or PS(Puttied Sabnox) because of its spread design.
ARGoH: Annoying Resource Gatherers of Horror. Used widely and it is a must-have for outposts. Basically looking like giving resources to others, but actually,(BOOM) a booby trap will be placed in front of every RG.
DamN: Dam NEC. Basically an NEC without gaps. Best for preventing monsters to chew your NEC.
(actually too complicated, see here.)
CoFA(By The Dog Named JAKE): Chain of Forever After. Always used in wide yards. An NEC combining all the NECs altogether.
Why you need a NEC?
You need an NEC because it's important. You don't want your yard be D.A.V.E. or Pokey Bombed, right?
How to make a NEC?
NECs are easy to make IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH YARDAGE.
- Put your neutral buildings(All buildings except towers and things you get loot from AND THE HOUSING.)at the rim.
- Make them in a circle.
- If you want to prevent Eye-ras make a ring of blocks there.(BD blocks recommended)
- Volia! Done!
First, send in some Pokeys accompanied by a Fomor. Break though about 1/4-1/2 of the NEC.
Second, safely send in the anything monsters to wreck harvoc.
You don't want your NEC being chewed up without the enemy taking damage?
Make an NECoT inside the NEC(Warning: No ADTs)
Demolish your NEC and make something useful.
