Base notes are instructions on how to attack a base.
At a minimum, the notes contain 3 elements:
- point of attack for troop deployment
- priority defenses to be targeted
- order of the base during the operation.
- Secondary defenses to be targeted
- Recommended troops
- Precautions during troop deployment
- How to approach the core for final attacks
- Reservation of the base for a maximum vp level
