Any advice on my base layout? Keep in mind I'm only level 4 TH so I've built as many walls as I can.



I did shift my elixir collectors to the little jutted-out wall section and moved the "lone" gold mine to group it with the other 3...but that's more just to keep them in range of the mortar

can't really get too creative with base design that early in the game. might try some funnelling techniques when you get some more spring traps. its good for picking off packs of giants.

if you have to keep your TH in the corner like that, at least surround that side with other buildings because right now a few archers have nothing stopping them from taking out your TH. Throw some buildings and/or bombs over that way. Also, I'd use those extra blocks like a funnel like ^ said and I'd put them between defenses because giants will go from defense to defense. At that level, I used to just come in with giants and wipe out 95% of the bases I attacked because they had no traps set for them.

I just surpassed 2900 trophies after a string of two-star attacks and a couple of successful defenses.

I'm gonna see if I can keep it going long enough to reach the champion league. Attacks are getting tricky though.

I can't get to 1000 to save my life. I've gotten as high as 996 I think. But I'm still TH4 for another 8 hours or so.

Leveling up your troops and increasing your army camp space will help a lot when you move up to TH5, and 1000 shouldn't be any problem then. Whenever you get to 1250, I would highly recommend using the gems for a third builder. It speeds up progress immensely.

Oh, I already got the 3rd builder from achievements, clearing trees and rocks, etc. But I'm looking forward to being able to deploy more than 80 space worth of troops.

Been playing for 10 days now. Love the game. It's challenging and fun. I'm at my highest now, at 890. I've stayed in the 800 range for a while, attacking people I can't win against but gaining a ton of resources from so I could beef up all my walls before war started. Now i'm moving up (894 right now). I'm in an area with bad reception, but

It has worked really well so far. I put it in the corner for defensive reasons.

Big thing i've learned so far is don't upgrade your town hall until everything else is upgraded.... The reward from the attacks is much less on the same enemy when you upgrade your town hall.

I'd put those bombs closer to your buildings, or in between buildings if there's space. You are assuming they will spawn near them and walk over them. That assumption could mean they evade the bomb all together. put the bombs where you know they'll go... if not initially, eventually.

I wish we could practice raid each other to help show the exploits in player's defenses and use it to train for offensive tactics...

Upgrading to TH9. Got a shield so I could upgrade all three wizard towers to level 6 without having to worry about being attacked. Have enough gems left over to boost my mines/pumps the rest of the week so I'll hit the ground running when the TH is complete. My trophy count is lower than normal since I was farming pretty hard before this.

Yeah, I'm back in the Little House.

Looking forward to the Wars. I've noticed that I need to work on my attack strategy.

Do you guys send bombers and start with Giants? What's the most standard way of attacking?

when you say bombers do you mean wall busters?

the best thing to do is start w/ giants to distract the defense, otherwise the wall busters are taken out pretty easily before they have a chance to explode

But before you send any giants, at least in a clan war battle, I like to send 1 archer to draw all the troops out of the clan castle. Then surround them with a bunch of archers to take them out. THEN send in some giants and bombers.

you've just gotta make sure you pull the entire castle. at higher levels, only a few come out at a time, even if you draw them to a builders hut in the corner. You have to send in another troop into the radius of the CC to pull out the rest. Archers or lightning spells work.

a single lightning spell direct hit to enemy CC defenses drawn out (usually works best with archers) will usually take care of most of the CC's contents

i'd also suggest barbarians for drawing CC. they're stronger than archers so they can draw a little longer, and since their range is shorter than archers they'll run straight up to the nearest building (thus closer to the CC itself). if you have two lightning spells, you can also strategically draw CC troops to stand over a mortar. stop sending troops and drop the lightnings to kill the CC troops and the mortar at the same time. works best against archer/barbarian CC troops.

yeah the amount you get from raids pales in comparison to the costs for upgrades as you get higher up.

^^you were smart to max everything before going to TH8

TH8 allows for a ton of defensive upgrades requiring tons of gold. TH9 is back to offense and more elixir dependent.

...and your mortars. They can protect the mortars inside the radius where the mortars can't attack, while the mortars can protect them from longer range attacks. Great symbiotic relationship between the two.

And I wouldn't max out everything before you START a town hall upgrade. Try to do the math on how long the TH upgrade will take, versus what can still be upgraded to max for that level. Otherwise all your builders except the one that's maxing out the town hall will be sitting in their huts holding their dicks for a week with nothing to do but clear the occasional tree or bush.

Don't neglect your walls. I neglected my walls until I got to TH9 (they were either gold or pink when I rushed my town hall to level 9), and it's been a pain in the ass trying to play catch up.

Do extractors/mines not go past Lvl 11? This shit is way too slow.

Saving up for 5 star archers took a fuckin week with gems boosting extractors.

Obviously the point of the upgrades taking an eternity is to get you to buy gems. It works quite well as the game has been a top grossing app.

So I'm going for trophies, and looking for bases that have the town hall outside the walls, in the corner

And I like how I spawn a couple archers and they start firing on the TH, and all the villagers decide "oh shit, someone is attacking, I better run inside the town hall that's being fired on and about to be destroyed"
