Hey guys I have recently started trying to get a ll my cannon towers and other defense buildings level 10 will this have a big impact on my overall defense if any?

I wish I could say yes, your efforts will be rewarded, but I highly doubt it will make that much of a difference. However, your current level and allies count could have a significant factor in their effectiveness.

I am level 200, 500 allies 555k and 505k attack and defense. Will that effect it for Better or worse?

My guess the overall effect will be worse in your case. I'm sure a person around level 39, the level required to unlock cannon towers, would notice a significantly higher effect.

Edit: at your level though there might not be many things you can upgrade that don't require you going over vault and be raided constantly. ;)

It doesn't hurt to upgrade them. Now the real question is when. The defense buildings might be on the back burner while the money/boost buildings are done first.

Has anyone ever made some in depth analysis of this? I feel they're a bit of a waste as long as you have other buildings to upgrade.

defense buildings take up space and look ugly

And I'm sure you have them.

And I'm sure you have them.

every single one wrapped around my manors ;)

If you assort them into patterns they can look pretty. Shame you can only build 5 of each.

After some testing early on, it seemed that they didn't affect the win/loss ratio for raids against their protected buildings. The only thing they seemed to affect was casualty rates of the person attacking. However, that isn't an effective enough deterrent to be worth spending your valuable upgrade time on. If they gave % based defensive boosts to their area of protection, then they'd be worth it, but then everyone would just place them around their manors and raiding would die, so they won't do it. As it is, unless you have no further use for gold(read:nobody), the opportunity cost of upgrading them is too high to be worthwhile. Note that this is my considered opinion, backed up by data gained in the beginning of the game. Things may have or could change(d). Feel free to disagree, everyone's entitled to be wrong. As it stands, when I see a kingdom with upgraded defense buildings, I know that I don't even need to check their stats, because they don't have the IPH to support any kind of worthwhile units.

Also note that I still built them and put them around my manors, like most everyone else, I just know it doesn't do any good.
