Base constructing is a craft that many Clashers use to outline themselves amongst an ocean of proficient gamers. It may be time-consuming and tedious however the rewards are available in so some ways to those who take the time to construct the indestructible base. As you make investments extra time within the sport it’s going to grow to be apparent well-constructed House Village would be the basis of your long-term success.
Our primary aim is to guard our hard-earned loot from the bombardment of artful assaults waged upon us from different gamers. Most gamers received’t take lengthy to affix a Clan and inevitably take part within the Clan Wars. Instantly you’ll discover one thing completely different concerning the bases within the Clan Wars. They’re much tougher to Three-Star than the House Village. It’s at this second that you simply start to understand the complexity of base constructing. There are basic variations between the House Village and the War Base. The variations are pushed from our have to have particular performance from every base design.
The House Village
One of many largest benefits that you’ve because the defender would be the prep time that the attacker has earlier than they start the assault in your village. They solely have 30 seconds to determine in case your base is correct for them.
Most gamers are in search of certainly one of two issues, loot and trophies so earlier than we get into constructing ideas let’s begin off by making a acutely aware effort to know the attacker. We need to make the NEXT button a way more enticing concept than the ATTACK button.
The first means we do that is to reduce the quantity of loot we depart in our village after we go offline. There are tens of millions of bases on the market for the attacker to select from. Many potential attackers have already hit the NEXT button a dozen instances to get to your base so attempt to not stand out by providing enormous rewards for attacking your village over the subsequent village. So, earlier than you go offline, empty these Storages if in any respect doable!
This may occasionally appear like a great House Village design however as we take a more in-depth look we discover many issues. This resulted in a Three star and over one million in loot.
As soon as an attacker commits to attacking your base they’ve little or no prep time to check your base design. That is the most important benefit we’ve as defenders so we need to exploit it as greatest as doable. Our aim is to confuse and mislead the attacker whereas we lead them by a sequence of traps and pitfalls. Needless to say they solely have one likelihood at attacking your village so we need to use the excessive threat / excessive reward varieties of designs to finish their assaults early.
Let’s get into some specifics…
Begin each House Village construct with the Clan Citadel (aka CC). The defending CC troops will normally supply the defender the very best mixed DPS (harm per second) in your village. By centering the Clan Citadel you’ll make it tougher for the attacking participant to get their troops into the “Trigger Zone” this makes the collision between their troops and your CC Troops occur at an unpredictable time which is what we would like because the defender.
Preserve City Corridor (aka TH) close to the core alongside together with your Most worthy useful resource the Darkish Elixir Storage. We wish City Corridor close to the core for two causes. 1st it is stuffed with loot and we don’t give something away. 2nd it has tons of hit factors which is able to pressure attacking gamers to take a very long time to destroy it. By retaining the City Corridor close to the core you might have a greater likelihood for a number of defenses to focus on the attacking troops. Your defenses will punish these troops whereas they chop away on the City Corridor thus diminishing their general energy.
This leads us to our subsequent main issue within the House Village design. I’ve this idea of buying and selling loot for troops. Which means in case you are attacking my village and you’re taking a Gold Storage, I’ll in return kill off a considerable variety of troops to your efforts. NEVER give something away in your House Village. You need the attacker to must take 100% of your village to get 100% of your loot. We do that by dividing the village into Four quadrants and putting 25% of our loot in every quadrant. An enormous mistake many new gamers make is the place they place their Storages. Many attackers will be capable of get to any location in your map so by no means place your whole Storages in a single place, like within the core of the bottom. Those self same gamers that may get their troops to any location on the map might not be capable of take 100% of the map so splitting up your hard-earned loot is at all times one of the best concept. Layer your defenses into every quadrant together with the Storages to make it troublesome for attackers to grab your loot it doesn’t matter what course the assault from. Don’t expose your defenses by surrounding your Storages with them. Layer the defenses in with the excessive Hit Level Storages to allow them to shield them for so long as doable.
As a result of the truth that the attacker solely has one shot at your House Village it would be best to create pitfalls in areas of the village. We do that with the Big Bombs and the Spring Traps. Big Bombs are 2×2 tile buildings. That’s sufficiently small to sneak one in right here and there however we don’t need to try this. We need to place each Big Bomb we’ve in a single space making a loss of life lure for any group of troops that crosses over it however, we additionally must be as discreet as doable. To create huge lure areas we’ve to design our village with a number of areas the place the Big Bombs may very well be. This has a number of advantages too! Create Four-5 areas round your village with empty areas. This can pressure the attacker to make a fast educated guess as to the place the traps truly are and at instances even trigger the attacker to drop Heal Spells over open areas that look suspicious however are literally empty. The identical tactic can be utilized for the Spring Traps too.
Professional Tip! watch replays of assaults in your village and transfer traps the place you see attackers enter the bottom. Discover the commonest pathways and lure there. Preserve watching and hold tweaking for one of the best outcomes
There are dangers for grouping each Big Bomb or Spring Entice collectively. The attacker might get fortunate and have one rogue Goblin run by all 5 Big Bombs, setting all of them off or a Golem lead a pack of troops over a Spring Entice farm additionally setting all of them off remaining unhurt themselves. More often than not the attacker is not going to be so fortunate and the rewards of defending your village whereas permitting that attacker minimal positive factors in loot for his or her efforts is rather more widespread.
Listed below are 2 nice examples of Big Bomb placement on your own home village. Bear in mind don’t combine your Big Bombs with the Spring Traps. No have to spring injured troops off the map!
I discussed earlier how the NEXT button might play into your House Village’s general security and I needed to elaborate on that time a little bit extra earlier than we start to interrupt down the War Base. When I’m out farming I search for a couple of issues earlier than I assault a base. 1st there needs to be sufficient loot. If there may be 500Okay of every Gold and Elixir and/ or 4K in Darkish Elixir that’s an automated inexperienced gentle except the bottom seems so imposing that I don’t really feel assured sufficient to assault it for a achieve. By no means advance your House Village’s TH stage so quick that you simply depart your defenses a number of ranges behind. Construct probably the most imposing village which you could. It’s possible you’ll need to lookup base designs on the web to get some concepts and even copy one and tweak it a little bit till you grow to be extra assured as a base builder your self.
Listed below are some issues to keep away from when selecting your House Village design:
- Don’t construct an anti-Three sort of dwelling village. They’re designed to make use of the clock towards the attacker and the clock is just not an enormous issue within the House Village.
- Don’t place Builder’s Huts or Hidden Teslas within the corners of the House Village. That is one other instance of utilizing the clock towards the attacker (we are going to go over this within the War Base part)
- Don’t improve too many comparable defenses at one time. If the attacker has an air military constructed and you’ve got Three of Four Air Defenses upgrading at one time you possibly can count on to see Balloons floating over your partitions. Don’t set your whole X-bows to floor both. An attacker can establish the distinction between air and floor at a look and should determine to assault you if they’ll use their air troops with out the “X-factor” concerned.
- Don’t depart your elite defenses in a depleted state. That is referred to as a useless base and it’s most attackers dream. Many gamers will NEXT till they discover a useless base to assault even when it takes tapping the NEXT button 50 instances.
Here’s a recap of a few of the options you need to have within the House Village:
- Use obstacles like flags, torches and statues in a cluttered trend to make the scouting course of tougher
- Attempt to depart tombstones in your base to provide the phantasm of a useless base
- Heart your Clan Citadel to maximise the potential of a troop collision that favors you, the defender
- Heart you Darkish Elixir. It’s the #1 goal of just about each attacker
- Place City Corridor within the core of the bottom to discourage trophy hunters and assist with the interior core defensive shielding
- Group your Big Bombs and Spring Traps in massive clusters to assist finish assaults early
- Break up your loot up evenly throughout your House Village. Make attackers take 100% of your village to get 100% of the loot
- Place your whole storages inside vary of your defenses. Make attackers earn each Useful resource Constructing. Don’t give away any of your loot
The War Base
Now that we’ve lined many necessary options of the House Village we are able to break down the War Base. There are lots of basic variations between the War Base and the House Village. That is for 2 primary causes. 1st the defending participant doesn’t lose any loot from their private storages throughout an assault on their base in a Clan War. The rewards are generated from the Clan War itself not taken from the gamers within the conflict. 2nd the principle goal in a Clan War is to your Clan to earn extra stars than the opposing Clan. Stars are every little thing in Clan Wars so we have to construct our War Base in a way that we deprive the attacking Clan of stars, particularly Three stars.
The first time I attacked a War Base in a Clan War I received zero stars. I didn’t perceive why it was a lot simpler for me to assault once I was farming. I figured it should have been the strain of attacking whereas members of the Clan had been watching. Then I spotted that I used to be utterly improper. It wasn’t the strain of spectators or the Clan’s expectations, these bases had been utterly completely different! I began arising with completely different base designs for my War Base and after about 2 months I lastly found out each single technique to make a War Base improper. I began off by leaving a gap contained in the core of the bottom and putting all of my Big Bombs and Spring Traps in the identical space so after they spawned their total military within the core they might set off all the traps and I’d defend with a zero star. Sadly, most attackers simply dropped one Barbarian within the gap, setting off all of my traps leaving me with out Big Bombs and searching just like the noob that I used to be. Then I copied a fantastic wanting base from the web. It was labeled “best TH7 War Base of 2014” and that’s what I wanted, one of the best TH7 War Base. This too led to a different disappointment because it received Three starred conflict after conflict. Again to the drafting board…
The most important benefit attackers have towards your War Base is they’ll scout it for a very long time. They’ll ask their most skilled clanmates for assist and most significantly they’ll watch the replays of any assaults that had been already executed in your War Base. Trick bases and bases with overloaded lure areas particularly these outdoors the partitions are usually not practically as efficient as they might be within the House Village setting. It’s possible you’ll catch the primary attacker off guard however the replays on that assault will expose all the lure areas and from that time on the bottom is in deep trouble. So… the place do you start to design one of the best War Base?
We begin constructing the War Base with the identical constructing that you’d begin the House Village with… The Clan Citadel. It rests within the useless heart of the map. Just like the House Village the aim is to make it as onerous as doable to set off the CC troops, however in contrast to the House Village you and your clanmates will rigorously plan and cargo the absolute best CC troops to defend your base. More often than not those that assault your House Village must take care of no matter troops you had been planning on utilizing in your subsequent farming raid. Frequent troops for a farming raid can be Giants, who are usually not actually the only option for defending your base. The added defensive energy of Child Dragons, Witches, Valkyries and Wizards becoming a member of the combat mid-attack ought to offer you much more incentive to heart the Clan Citadel. After the Clan Citadel is positioned on the map the War Base building continues however in a a lot completely different trend than the House Village. Defending your valuable loot means completely nothing in Clan Wars so we are going to use the excessive hit level Storage Buildings as shields for all of our key defenses. We fill pressure attackers to push their means by Gold and Elixir Storages to get to our Archer Towers and Cannons and we are going to line our outer partitions with collectors creating one more barrier for the attacking troops to undergo earlier than they get anyplace close to our defenses.
The excessive threat/ excessive reward techniques of the House Village needs to be put aside and changed with a effectively rounded defensive posture that won’t solely stand as much as the opening raid however to repeat assaults as effectively. To do that we’ve to know how the attackers are going to attempt to deal with and ultimately dismantle our defenses. They’ll begin assaults with excessive powered teams of troops referred to as “kill squads” comprised of specialists (tanking specialists like Golem and harm specialists like Wizard) assembled particularly to take down your CC Troops and Heroes together with making an attempt to disarm traps and key defenses that may pose the most important threats to their primary assault pressure. Extra superior gamers will use highly effective ranged troops (Archer Queen, Bowlers and Witches are a couple of) together with a number of Healers to filter out total sections of your War Base’s perimeter buildings (trash buildings) and outer defenses which is able to enable them a fantastic alternative to “funnel” their primary assault pressure into your War Base. Lastly the principle assault pressure comes into play. Three star specialists will deploy defensive focusing on troops just like the Hog Rider or Balloon that may go proper over the protecting Storages and start eliminating your defenses.
With all of this in thoughts it’s our job as defenders to design a War Base that may take care of all of those various factors directly. It wants be be designed effectively sufficient that after the bottom will get attacked and the replays can be found, that the enemy clan won’t be able to establish an apparent vulnerability that may be exploited within the subsequent assault. Along with that we’ve to defend towards the potential of both an air raid or a floor raid and in lots of case a combination of the 2! This may occasionally sound like an unimaginable process however worry not, we’ve a number of methods to guard ourselves from any and all military compositions.
There are lots of other ways to realize this however some common guidelines will apply to all strategies. 1st we by no means group key targets too shut collectively. We don’t need the attacker to make use of one Rage Spell and push their military by all of our key defenses, or use one Freeze Spell and disable all of our elite protection directly. Subsequent we think about the trail that the troops will take into our base. That is particularly necessary with the protection solely focusing on troops just like the Hog Riders and Balloons. We wish the troops to go the place we would like them to not the place the attacker desires them to. We are able to accomplish this by deliberately putting particular defenses nearer collectively. Right here is an effective instance…
We don’t understand it the attacker goes to make use of floor or air troops so we have to defend towards each raids. We begin off by putting an Air Protection on the map out of vary from any troop that’s outdoors of the partitions. In entrance of the Air Protection we are going to place a Cannon, Mortar and an Archer Tower. We are going to be sure that the Air Protection is much sufficient away from the opposite Three defenses that the pure course of a bunch of Balloons can be to go from the Cannon to the Mortar to the Archer Tower after which lastly to the Air Protection final. This can give the Air Protection extra time to shoot down the Balloons as they slowly drift over the opposite three defenses which are grouped collectively. As a result of Hog Riders are additionally a well-liked troop used to three star in Clan Wars we may also think about them and place a Spring Entice in between every protection. This idea will assist defend towards each the air and floor assaults.
Professional Tip! Strive to not place Wizard Towers too near Air Defenses. You need them capturing on the Balloons not the Lava Hounds in a Laloon raid
Not like the House Village your War Base has the posh of spreading out. We would not have to guard each Useful resource Constructing so we are able to pull these buildings away from the outer partitions and pressure attackers to cowl rather more floor. Using Builder’s Huts within the Four corners of the map is one other means to make use of the clock to our benefit. This leads us to a very fashionable War Base design referred to as the Anti-Three War Base. These bases are designed with completely different strain factors on reverse sides of the map and can normally name on City Corridor to grow to be the Base’s largest protect. (Please observe that I’ve seen the Anti-Three work towards the defender nearly as a lot as for them so depart the Anti-Three to the superior gamers) The anti-Three Base is likely one of the prime examples of the variations between the War Base and the House Village as a result of the defender will place City Corridor outdoors the partitions (in lots of circumstances) and temp gamers to start out their assaults with the simple star solely to seek out that the perimeter of the City Corridor is being guarded by highly effective ranged defenses just like the Archer Tower of X-bow. Attackers will normally take down City Corridor however they must pay for it with both a heavy troop loss or early spell utilization. This turns into an element as they get by the bottom and must take care of what is generally on the opposite facet… the Hidden Tesla Farm.
Professional Tip! Place Storages to the left and proper of the Tesla Farm. This can make it tougher for attacking troops to deal with one Tesla at a time by stalling the troops out as soon as they’re in Tesla vary
The Hidden Tesla Farm generally is a highly effective assault ending function that, in my view must be a part of each War Base. A well-built Tesla Farm can be wedged in between one other group of defenses and accompanied by the safety of a few Storages or the Darkish Elixir storage. If utilized correctly in an Anti-Three Base they, together with their neighboring defenses will make a final stand towards a battle torn military. The fast strikes of Three-Four Hidden Teslas have been the ending level of many good raids however there’s a second issue concerned with the Tesla Farm in relationship with the Anti-Three War Base. After the first try on the bottom the enemy clan will watch the replays after which must determine which facet of the bottom to start their subsequent assault from. Do they begin at City Corridor once more and threat coping with a contemporary Tesla Farm on the finish of the raid with their broken military or do they deal with the Tesla Farm 1st and threat not getting by to City Corridor on the different finish of the bottom. It’s these kinds of dilemmas that flip good War Bases into nice War Bases. However, let’s not cease there. We have to create comparable issues all through the War Base. Put an excessive amount of thought into this a part of your War Base Construct. Separate the Archer Queen from the CC Troops. Pressure attackers to to assault both the CC Troops or the Queen with their kill squad as a result of if both one is left intact when the principle assault begins it might trigger severe issues for the attacker.
Take a look at this video on the Anti Queen Walk Base design. This can be a nice technique to punish attackers that begin their raid behind the consolation of the AQ Stroll. This kind of construct may also assist defend towards the “Slap” Assault which often is the #1 assault within the present Meta.
Listed below are some elements to think about when constructing your War Base
- Heart the Clan Citadel such as you would within the House Village
- Use your storages as shields, the attacker is not going to achieve your loot
- Unfold your spring traps evenly all through the bottom however make certain they’re subsequent to defenses to assist defend towards Hog Riders
- Be certain that there are many decoy holes so the attacker cannot immediately see the place the Big Bombs and different traps are
- Pull the Big Bombs nearer to the core of the bottom. Attackers might have to make use of Heal Spells early and received’t be capable of heal after Big Bombs go off if they’re near the core
- Unfold your trash constructing out. Not like the house village you do not want to guard your useful resource buildings so use them to pressure attackers to spend extra time chasing them down
- Place smaller buildings like Builder’s Huts within the corners forcing attackers to both spends troops firstly of the raid or threat operating out of time because the scurry from nook to nook on the finish
- Break up excessive precedence defenses and Heroes as much as diminish the general worth the attacker will get from their kill squad
- Think about the Anti-Three War Base design in City Corridor 9 and 10
- Use a Tesla Farm both on the other facet of the bottom as City Corridor within the Anti-Three design or to easily overpower troops in key areas
- Use cautious defensive placement to path Balloons away from Air Defenses and to path Hog Riders by units of Big Bombs and Spring Traps
That is what you need to keep away from when constructing your War Base
- Don’t shield your useful resource buildings together with your defenses
- Don’t place like protection too shut collectively. For instance make certain one Earthquake Spell received’t harm two Air Protection directly
- Don’t bunch your whole buildings up collectively with out leaving areas for potential traps. Preserve them guessing particularly on the first assault.
- Preserve elite defenses off of the outer partitions. Distribute defenses from strongest to weakest, strongest being the core of the bottom. Bear in mind assaults will use spells to beat something on the outer partitions.
- Don’t set each Inferno Towers to similar setting of all the X-bows to Floor. Attackers will alter their military composition to compensate
- Don’t place Big Bombs or Spring Traps all collectively in 1 location. Even when it ends the first raid early it’s going to harm you within the 2nd and third assaults in your base
- Don’t depart holes behind your partitions and lure them hoping to catch attackers off guard. Not like the House Village they get a couple of likelihood in your base so no tips solely sound defensive postures
- Keep away from anti-Three bases in TH11.This can give TH9-10 a a lot simpler time getting 2 stars in your TH11 which is ample typically
- Don’t group Air Traps in massive clusters outdoors of the partitions. Attackers will use 1 troop to set off all of them
- Don’t place your Clan Citadel in location the place the attacker can drop a single troop contained in the set off zone. Make them work onerous to set off these CC Troops. It’s so necessary to set off them that good attackers will use as much as 20 housing area of troops and a spell to pull them. That is significantly better than utilizing 1 Barbarian to get the identical outcomes
- Don’t use standard web bases in conflict. If anybody within the different clan acknowledges it they may watch how others have been in a position to beat it copy and repeat
- Don’t use a number of fashions of the identical War Base in conflict. It sounds loopy to even have to say nevertheless it’s a lot too widespread nowadays
- Don’t use your House Village as your War Base, particularly not the House Base they’ve been for the 23 hours in the course of the Prep Day of a Clan War!
- Don’t copy a prime 100 bases for those who would not have comparable stage defenses! Max defenses make these bases work, with out maxed defenses these designs will fail on you often!
Conflict of Clans is a posh sport that enables us as gamers a singular alternative to face out from the group by constructing specialised House Villages and War Bases. Changing into an professional base builder is simply as necessary and changing into an professional attacker. It additionally provides worth to you because the participant. Elite clans will usually have one or two gamers of their clan that does nothing however construct bases for the gamers that focus extra on the offensive facet of the sport. Altering each your House Village structure and your War Base design is crucial as the sport introduces new troops into the sport. New troops will quickly translate into new assaults and probably a brand new Meta so you really want to remain forward of all of it by continuously constructing, rebuilding and tweaking your bases.
