The Sniper – Archer Attack (Guide)

So you’re looking for Farming bases that keep the Town Hall outside when all of a Sudden, you get a Dead Base full of Gold, Elixir and even Dark Elixir. But the troops you have are minimal, used to Snipe Town Halls and not for looting Dead Bases. Well here is where you become a Sniper! Read more for details about Archer Attack methods.

The first thing you want to do is NOT panic! As long as you have a few archers you’ll be fine. Start by using the 30 Second Rule and assess the base. Ask yourself which pumps or mines can be reached safely with an Archer Attack? Then look at where you should focus the waves of troops most Effectively. Try to stay away from Mortars and Wizard Towers.

Here are the tactics you should use when you’re limited on troops, but want to get as much Gold, Elixir and DE (Dark Elixir). After deploying a single Archer and Sniping the distant Mines. Locate the other mines and pumps furthest from the Mortars and Wizard Towers. I repeat, Stay away from the Wizard Towers and Mortars. Deploy 3-5 Barbarians first and follow them by 7-10 Archers they will be able to destroy a pump or mine even if there’s an Archer tower or Cannon in range.

When it’s time to getting loot that’s close to Mortars and Wiz Towers, here is when it gets a little bit more nerve racking. Use the same strategy as above, by deploying a few Barbs first and spreading the Archers out in case they get targeted. This way they don’t all get killed by a single shot. Deploy more Barbs before the first wave dies to keep the defenses occupied and not kill your squishy Archers. Since you’re low on troops, only deploy enough to get the majority of the Loot. Only attempt to destroy the building if it will get you a win, otherwise use the remaining troops to target another pump or mine.

 

Trophy Pushing and the 30 Second Rule (Guide)

Trophy Pushing – 30 Sec Rule

Trophy Push like the Pros. Stop wasting your troops for no reason. Stop losing attacks and Trophies. Even if you’re still Town Hall Level 7 or Town Hall Level 8. You can get to Champion League without a problem. As a matter of fact you should Trophy Push to at least Crystal League before you get to Town Hall Level 9. Earn the Free Gems you need as soon as possible.

Here I am trying to reach Champion League to get more Free Gems and end up losing a few attacks right before I get there. If you ever tried Trophy Push to Champion it can get pretty tough towards the end. And if you have been in the same situation before, you know what I’m talking about. Little did I ever take advantage of this small detail that helped me succeed in getting my Free Gems quickly.

Clash of Clans gives you a 30 second timer when you’re searching for battles. Why not use the Whole 30 seconds to plan and analyze the base before starting the attack? Try this 30 second rule and see how much it will help you out. Don’t start the attack before it expires and just take that time to plan your attack. If you cant “win” the battle with at least 1 star, then simply move on to the next base instead of losing trophies.

When trophy pushing, try to visualize winning the battle within 30 seconds time limit, if you can, then start attacking the base, otherwise skip to the next base. Don’t risk losing too many trophies. Because every time you lose an attack, you will need to “1 Star” about 4 bases to make up for the lost trophies. You can see why the 30 second rule is so important. Make sure you follow the attack strategies and guides posted here.

Try this method when farming for Gold and Elixir too. If you’re not able to see yourself getting to the Gold and Elixir within the 30 second window, just move on to the next base. There are plenty of loaded bases during the weekdays. So plan ahead and don’t shoot before you Aim.

If you’re Town Hall Level 7 or 8, it’s a lot “cheaper” to find farming bases that leave the Town Hall outside. So take advantage of that and try to trophy push targeting those bases.

Higher League the Easy Way (Guide)

Higher League the Easy Way (Guide)

Getting to a higher League has a lot of benefits. The most important is the amount of Loot Bonus you get. Another benefit is you will get higher level bases to attack and if you’re Town Hall 7 or 8 you will reap the benefits of more loot from bases higher than you.

Can you get there though if you’re still Town Hall 7? Of course you can. Just start by designing your base with the TH heavily protected. Believe me you will start getting Trophies just from defense wins. Don’t worry about your Storages. Since they have higher Health, you should use them to occupy the attacking troops while your defenses blast them away.

So try and position the Storages close to the outer walls, but within the range of your Mortars and Wizard Towers. You won’t lose much in resources if you’re a lower TH, but you will gain many Defense wins and get to the higher league faster, sometimes even overnight!

That’s the easiest and quickest way to get to a higher League. Take advantage of your Town Hall level. Lower Town Halls will be able to Loot more Gold and Elixir.

Don’t underestimate your defense! Even at lower levels, winning defenses is not difficult. Just focus on protecting your Town Hall. Try not to worry about your resources. You can get what you lose easily once you’re in the higher leagues.

Of course you can also get to the higher Leagues by Sniping Town Halls and winning battles. All you need is a few archers, maybe 5 per Town Hall, and some patience. I highly recommend this method only if you have some Gold to spare. you will have to pass up a lot of bases that don’t have the TH outside.

Be careful of Tombstones around the TH. That’s a sign that the Town Hall is booby trapped with Teslas and Bombs. If you’re in doubt just move on to the next base. Avoid losing battles unless you find a dead base. Then you can try following this Post on How to Snipe Bases with minimal troops.
