Base Mechanics and Features

Perfect Bomb Placements

Based on the some new AI changes after the July 1st update, in this base, Bombs are placed in nooks where only Wall Breakers can trample and they will be dead. Wall Breakers are the keys of most ground attacks to establish the funnel. Killing them can break any attack.

Perfect Bomb Placements

Air Traps work perfectly

Three Air Bombs will stop any Balloon squad which want to enter base from the top and protect the most exposed AD nearby.

Anti-Giant

Giant variations are very popular at every Town Hall level, just behind Barch and the attackers can’t do anything with Giants when attack this base. The orange lines in the screenshot below show you the pathing of this base for Giants. Instead of going to the core, they will always walk around the base, left normal troops behind and being attacked by key defenses.

Anti-Wall Breakers and all ground targeting troops

Most Wall Breakers and targeting troops usually avoid doubled Walls. As in the screenshot below, they will usually follow the orange lines and avoid red lines. They will be redirected to Spring Traps and fly off. Once the Wall Breakers hit the Spring Traps, most attacks will be ended.

Anti-AQ Core

As we all know, the Archer Queen can attack within 5 tiles. Base on that valuable information, the core can prevent the Queen from hitting the Dark Elixir Storage easily. Even after taking down all buildings in the core, she still need to break 1 wall in order to hit the Storage inside.
Seems like base creators are focusing on Anti-Archer Queen core these days.

Matchups

This base works fine against all common attack strategies. Just Golem variations and Hog Riders can crack it!
