Good advice. Builders are important. If you're like me and refuse to pay for an otherwise free game, have patience with gems. Let them accumulate. You will also get gems for achievements (that button in the lower right with the lady on it). Only once you have gotten your 4th (ideally 5th) builder should you look into accumulating gems for more important things.

You won't be able to join a clan until you have a clan castle. Even then, it'll be a while before you're worth a damn. Try joining a clan that is not new, but not too old. War is where you'll learn more about strategy. Looting/raiding can be a good way to hone skills. If you get into watching YouTube videos, you can learn a lot about strategy. As a low town hall, you don't have much to look forward to until you have dragons. They will be your staple until you hit town hall 8. At that point, you should look into more complex attacks. Gowipe (golems, Wizards, and pekkas) and goho (golems and hogs) are major players for th8 and up. But while you're using drags, concentrate on maxing out your drags, rage spells, and air defenses. They will be among the most important things until you graduate to th8.

Google different base layouts and try them out. Learn which buildings serve which defensive purpose (e.g., storages have exceptionally high HPs), which means they can shield your defenses (like air defenses) that are most important. That way, while the big hitting attackers get stuck on trying to destroy them, your actual defensive structures can blast em.

Don't accumulate resources more than is really necessary. Excess will get you raided frequently and can completely undo anything you gained from raids. Try to keep your gold spent, but don't upgrade your town hall until you have upgraded pretty much everything else you possibly can to the max.

I almost always have a 'farm' base, which basically means my town hall is always exposed. This helps you attract 'town hall snipers' who are looking for trophies with minimal investment. The benefit to you is that your resources won't be plundered as badly. Taking your town hall gives them a star and gives you a shield for at least 12 hours, so you don't get completely raped.

In order to gain resources rapidly for development and upgrades, try 'barch' looting. Basically, just use barbarians and archers. Scroll through vulnerable bases until you see a base with a lot of resources mostly in gold mines/elixir pumps. Barching minimizes your elixir investment in raids to maximize your gains. I would do what I stated, and with a 50/50 mix of archers and barbs, first ring the base with barbs (higher HP), then follow with a ring of archers. It's exceptionally easy to bulk up resources quickly in this manner.

I have been super busy and will continue to be into the near future, but we might need to talk (TT/Hiro). I know you guys aren't clan leaders, but if you want to improve your war log, the clan needs to get its shit together. I have been in 2 clans with exceptionally long winning streaks before coming to yours, and I'm a bit disappointed in the "attack who you think you can 3 star" approach. It's worked for y'all, but only to an extent. It lacks organization and results in a lot of missed stars. I've found that usually a clan-wide strategy where everyone's first target is 2 lower than their own base can routinely score 2 or 3 stars, if the players know what they're doing. War CCs shouldn't have weak troops that easily succumb to poison spells. Everyone should have drags/loons/lava hounds in any appropriate combo. This will slow enemies at the start and increase likelihood of running out of time.

Typical war plan for clans I've been in goes like this:
First wave of attacks go in the first 12 hours. 2nd wave waits to clean up bases that weren't 3 starred. Lowest bases should always attack first. Depending on the # of attacks down, the top bases pick up the gap left there. In other words, when attacking 2 down, #1 hits enemies #1 and 2, #2 hits enemies #3 and 4. Bottom-most attacks equal and one up from that ASAP, then everyone else follows their designated bases. Looting only happens in war when leader gives OK, which is only when the opponent can't gain enough stars to win or tie. Whichever members have habits of not using both attacks and using them well get the boot or have to sit out wars.

The reason I left my last clan was because fuckers kept taking my designated base and I couldn't gain war stars. Leader didn't discipline anyone. Hopefully I can back my shit up by kicking some ass this war.

We follow much of that, ie low TH8s attack first and the higher TH9s and TH10s wait to see who needs to be attacked.

But a mandatory "attack X spots below" strategy isn't good for a number of reasons. For example, you might be great at GoHog. The base 2 spots below you might be most susceptible to a GoLavaLoon attack. Someone with a similar ranking / # might be great at LavaLoon and have a better chance of 3 starring that base. I do think we could be more organized but I don't think the entire clan would be down with some of the 3rd part apps / websites where you call specific bases.

And I'm not sure what type of clans you were in, or what size wars you were running. But we've had win streaks of 10-15 wins in a row. But then we'll face some Korean clan or a clan with like a 200-8 war record, who 3 stars every single TH9 and 2 stars (at least) every TH10. I don't think we've ever lost a 15v15 or 10v10 war, but you run into a lot more variables when you run a 30v30, 35v35 etc and the lower opposing TH9s have Level 20+ heroes.

And as for CCs, I agree mostly, but something like balloons is fairly worthless in a TH8 clan castle, when a dragon attack won't even summon them. Similarly, something like a Dragon and 10 archers can be good, because the opponent might waste their poison spell on the archers before the slower dragon gets in range. We definitely have mostly drags or hounds, but a little variety can cause problems too.

Thoughts on the new update? I'm liking it for my TH9 account. Can't defend too well with my TH8 account though.

Yeah I'm at TH8 and I'm getting absolutely waxed every time my shield/guard goes down.

I just can't believe the people who paid to max out at TH11. Just unreal.

Lots of bases down in Silver 1 and Gold 3 still have exposed town halls. Lots of the time you can get about 70k 70k 500 just from a snipe.

Since the last update, I've had to drop trophies <1400 to get to a level where Im not raped every 12 hrs. I only spend a few minutes each day on the game so I don't usually have time to sit and raid for an hour.

I've started spending all of the gold and elixir I can on walls and focusing on heroes with DE. It's helped some with preventing getting raided.

I need to change my base layout so that my town hall is easier to hit with a lower army.

They are a bunch of fake ass TH 11's though. Pink walls n shit.

Haven't seen their troops yet (could be doing that TH 10.5 stuff), but it may not be as bad as some are thinking.

All I know is...I can't stand that fucking eagle that shoots cannons.

I haven't attacked a TH11 base yet so I haven't ran into the eagle. But watching videos it looks overpowered. Like an anti golem weapon.

So we lost the completely mismatched 30v30 war 69-69 because they had 82.13% destruction to our 77.87%. One of our guys had just 3 starred the only remaining TH9 to give us a 1 star lead, but the 2nd TH11 to attack my TH9 got a 2nd star to tie the overall stars and give them the percentage. Snapped a 9-win streak

That's depressing, but we did our best. Can't win them all. I've been enjoying upgrading my walls and its coming along faster than I thought it would. The new shield is a little annoying since I'm out of shield most of the time, but being in the silver/gold league with almost no loot to raid (as soon as I get 1M gold or elixer, I upgrade a wall to lvl9), I don't really need to worry about being attacked either.

The way I look at it, we did well. We tied with them in stars. They should have had a higher star lead on us. Were we outmatched? Yeah. Did we end up losing? Yes. But we were close man. REAL close to winning. I believe that is a testament to our ability to fight and I know we still have room to grow as players. I'm proud of our clan.

Anybody played Clash Royale? It's pretty cool, but you have to wait awhile for "chests" to open which give you new cards, and after the tutorial they start to take a long time to open.

^I assume that's now a bannable offense?

The new update is pretty sweet. Spell training time cut in half, Golems and Hounds only take 15 minutes instead of 45, etc. And heroes regenerate faster too.

I haven't played CoC in forever. I retired from Clash royal around November 2018. No regrets. They were fun until they became grindy; you know, that last 10% where you are 1 level away from max...
