I know that when we are upgrading any buildings to Nth level it will be the N-1 level in war base . I recently upgraded my town hall and started to build the new defenses, but these will not be completed within the preparation time. But when I edit my war base I can see the fully built defenses.

So on war day will the defenses be active or will it leave a blind spot (holes in between buildings so that enemy can deploy troops)?

  • @aytimothy I clearly stated in my question that I know if its at level N, defense towers will work at previous levels. There was no information about new defense structures, which is what this question is about ...

  • It's not your question that I was marking as duplicate - It was the answer. (Although to say it's not as well-written as mine)

  • Seeing as how the answer on this question is much, much better than the proposed duplicate, I would advocate keeping this one, and closing that one as a duplicate of this.

All defensive towers are active in your war base, even if:

  1. They're still being built (Level 0 to 1)
  2. Being upgraded (they'll be at the level before the upgrade start)
  3. Out of ammo (ie. X-Bows)

Answering your query about newly built towers that haven't been completed yet:
They'll function as normal, they'll be physically there (not leave any gaps) except only as Level 1.
I mean c'mon... Who's seen a Level 0 building?

Note: This only applies to newly built buildings... Or at least those that are under construction.
Cancellation of its construction will remove the building from your War base.

  • Umm my query was whether it would leave behind gaps or not specifically. Any reference to supercell wiki for your answer ?

    The wiki doesn't cover anything about buildings that are under construction (brand new). I'm citing from experience.

For upgrades, if the upgrade will finish before war ends, your upgraded level will show up in war base.

    You should probably clarify this. Does the upgraded level appear at the beginning? Or does it only appear once the upgrade is complete?

    Nop this is not true. I had three defenses under construction. Mortar and wizrd were new, and it appeared. Air defense level 2 was under progress but even after completion it was still at level 1
