Lay a deadly trap with the Hidden Tesla! Our Wizards have trapped a storm cloud into each of these sneaky towers. When an enemy walks or files close enough, the tower springs up and fries it using the power of Electrickery!
Here’s a preview video showing off Hidden Tesla;

Defense Tactics for Hidden Tesla
1) Basic Placement
Just place your Hidden Tesla behind 1st layer of wall either in its own 2x2 spaces or mix with other defense buildings. This is good position to kill incoming Wall Breaker without decoy. Note that it is easy to guess if there are empty 2x2 spaces surrounded with Walls.

You can choose to leave lots of 2x2 spaces empty to confuse attacker where Hidden Tesla really is.

2) Surprise & Giant lure
Placing Hidden Tesla outside your wall or in open space makes your Hidden Tesla defenseless. However, it is almost impossible for attacker to predict where Hidden Tesla is. The surprise factor can help your base to win on defense against careless attacker.

When Hidden Tesla pop up, it will lure enemy Giants to walk and attack it first, thus diverting Giant from intended path. This tactics can be used in conjunction with funneling tactics i.e. predetermine the walking path of enemy Giants then placing Spring Trap in front of Hidden Tesla.

3) Center focus
Place all Hidden Tesla deep in the middle of your base, surrounding and protecting either Town Hall or Storages. 3 or 4 Hidden Tesla firing at the same target such as Dragon, can quickly take down almost any unit in split second.

Attack Tactics against Hidden Tesla
1) Swarm!
Just swarm Hidden Tesla with Barbarians or Archers.
