TH9 War Base – Triton – Anti-3 Star

It’s such a long to see a new sublime TH9 War Base Layout huh? Today I’m going to give you a new astounding one, which is for preventing the attackers from taking the last star.

Don’t use this base If you care about the second star more than the third one!

TH9 War Base - The Triton

TH9 War Base Triton’s Features:

  • 5 viable locations for Double Giant Bomb.
  • Very hard to lure the Clan troops.
  • Unique Air Defense placements.
  • Wizard Towers are not locked on Air Defenses = Anti-Lava Hound.
  • Asymmetrical design.
  • Nice “Storage Wall”.
  • Nice Spring Traps placement for dealing with Hog Riders.

How this TH9 War Base works?

Anti-GoLaLoon

GoLaLoon is one of the most powerful army compositions at Town Hall 9, which can destroy most base layouts easily. So how well does this base work versus GoLaLoon?

As the attackers, If we want to attack with GoLaLoon, we need to care about 9 units in the enemy base: 4 Wizard Towers, 4 Air Defenses and the Archer Queen. For a decent attack, we need to take down at least 2 of those 9 units with the Kill Squad, including the Archer Queen.

As the defender, to prevent the attacker from taking 2 units at the starting, there is just one Air Defense nearby the Archer Queen.

Most smart attackers never start attacking from the Town Hall compartment when they attack this base layout because of the Archer Queen + Air Defense nearby, which can hit their troops badly. They will attack from the nearby compartment, but If they do that, they will be forced to our high HP Storages. Another small feature of this base is that the Archer Queen can’t be lured until the Golems finish the top Hidden Tesla.

triton-base-4Note:

  • Orange = Where most players start attacking.
  • Green = Where most players drop the Jump Spell.
  • Red = High HP Storages work as the big wall.
  • Blue = Where the Queen can be lured out.

How about the South?

Some players like attacking from the South but that is even worse than from the North!

The South Air Defense is heavily fortified by 2 Storages and a prefect pathing. Let’s take a look at the screenshot above for more details!

triton-base-5

How about 2 sides?

Although Attacking from the side can take down 2 key defenses but it is nearly impossible to kill the Archer Queen because she joins the attack pretty late. The Golems will be quickly disintegrated because of the high damage X-Bow there. It is pretty hard to drop the Jump Spell because the Heroes will always can move into a wrong compartment (yellow arrows below).

triton-base-6

So there is just one possible way to kill the Archer Queen is attacking from the Northwest side, but it also makes the attack be more difficult to archive.

Anti-GoHogs

Another powerful attack strategy at Town Hall 9 is GoHogs and its variations. For example, HoGoWiWi always need to kill the Archer Queen at first with the killquad and then Hog Riders can take down the remaining defenses easily. One of the keys for stopping GoHogs attacks is using the Giant Bombs wisely. This base has plenty of Double Giant Bomb spots, I can see that all players who attack this base with Hogs are all failed at the first time. Two DGB sposts of this base work amazingly.

Let’s assume that the is already known. A Jump Spell + GoWiWi army can break inside easily and then kill the Archer Queen. After that, Hog Riders will be sent from other sides. The screenshot below shows possible Hog pathings and how well the Double Giant Bomb spots are!

Note:

  • Orange = Where the players start attacking with GoWiWi.
  • Red = The area get attacked by the killsquad.
  • Blue = Hog Rider’s pathing.
  • Green = Jump Spell.
  • Purple = Other places where you can put DGB.

triton-base-7

Anto-Surgical Hog Attacks

Surgical Hog Rider is the most prevalent strategy these days in Clan Wars because of its efficiency and ease.

There are 2 ways to counter the Surgical Hog Rider strategy, they are either shallowing the X-Bows or layered key defenses. This base layout is focused on the second one.

Assuming that the attacker is raiding this layout the second time, he knows where the Giant Bombs are. The screenshot below depicts the best attack he can do and how the base still can stop him again:

triton-base-8

Other Features:

  • Anti GoLo: If the attackers want to go with GoLo variations, even If they can take down all 3 Air Defenses, they will never have enough Balloons to finish the attack.
  • Anti GoWiPe/GoWiWi/GoWiVa: With 12 compartments, most these attacks just can’t get more than 60% of the base If the attackers come from the top. If the attackers want to go from another side, they may even can’t get the second star. GoWiWi is not a good choice at all for the attacker If he want to destroy this Th9 War Base, Witches and Skeletons will always get stuck behind the Walls, even If the attacker uses Earthquake Spells, there are still lots of compartments left.

Defense Logs

Here are couples of new defense logs from our friends: Momo, Bambang petrus, Kakashi, Uzi Mike,… Thank you very much for taking time and sharing these defense logs. I really appreciate it!

Also, here are some defense videos of this TH9 War Base. By watching it, you can easily understand how this base works.

Above are two recent defense logs from players who are using this amazing TH9 War Base. Just take a look and you can see how superb it is. Also, please do me a huge favor and share this TH9 War Base with your friend so I can improve it much better. I’d really appreciate your support!

  • terroe

    i already use this base.doesnt work good

    !!!

    • Will Potter

      That will be great If you can share some defense logs buddy!

  • killercrozz

    will try this for our war today.. 🙂

    • Will Potter

      Looking for your great results buddy!

      • killercrozz

        #5 attacking #16.. 🙂

        • Will Potter

          that is not good for him at all lol.

          • killercrozz

            this time i got better result 🙂

          • Will Potter

            LOL nice to see that buddy! Awesome!

  • terroe

    Look

    • Tev Milli

      It was not 3 stared though

  • terroe

    almost all war bases are anti 3-star! above th 9 and th 10.TH is this base is too exposed

  • Daniel M. Ramos

    Will, I have to say one of the things that really makes your strategy guides awesome are the great freeze frame shots where you took the time to actually diagram things out. It is much easier to follow than having to play, rewind, and freeze a video multiple times before you figure out what is actually going on. I like the option of not having to default to youtube to understand exactly what you are trying to get across. Big thumbs up!

    • Will Potter

      Thank you again Daniel. Your comments always give me motivation!

  • Ben Babins

    Interesting base. Why is the 4th mortar on the outside? Would it not be more benefitial finding space inside?

    • Will Potter

      If you place it inside it can break the pathing of the base so ya, I recommend you placing it outside.

  • AJ Brown

    This is a very structured and scientific explanation. Also, I love the visual data. This seems like a base worth trying out.

  • Peyton Zell

    Hey will love ur posts with base designs currently using ur heart of a champion base. Did u design these bases or ur just commenting and showing how they work cause it says by clashes is that ur CoC land name. I thought I saw on the heart of a champion pic ur clash of clans base name was Ash. Just curious love the stuff ur putting out and gonna recommend this base to one of the guys in my Clan who’s been looking for a new TH9 base.

    • Will Potter

      Ash is the author of the Heart of a Champion base and he is also an author of cocland buddy :D.

      • Peyton Zell

        So ash is clasher and he posts these bases and run downs on the bases and what ur just another author for CoC land or for who? I’m new to this forum so just trying to understand how it works. Ur the one responding to the comments just trying to understand why. And thanks for getting back to me.

        • Will Potter

          Nope it is not me. I am Clasher, he is Ash. He posts lots of guides on CoC Land but I posted that base lol.

  • AfanDe Gea

    Wow.nice base,could you recommend a th 9 base without the x bows.

  • Minhaz Sourav

    I want to use this base without X-bows as I won’t build X-bow now… Any suggestions what can I replace there?

    • Will Potter

      Maybe you can place Storages there.

  • Rotsen Salto

    I don’t know how to start this base.. Don’t know where is the center lol :/

    • Will Potter

      Just start from the top Cannon lol.

    • wildcard2012

      see where the CC is? bottom corner there is a corner wall, THAT should be your base center

      • Will Potter

        Just build your base from the top, it’s not hard buddy!

      This is awesome. Thanks for sharing Momo!

  • bhupesh

    best th 9 war base ever .this was my war base for more then 100 war’s ,when i was at th9 and attacker never got 3rd star on it .

  • llSmokyll

    Last war got 2 stared pretty easy by mass dragon lv3 (lightning on the top air defense).. This time got 3 star by a max level GoLaLoon attack. I don’t know maybe its because of my defense level? They aren’t that bad tho

    • llSmokyll

      He attacked from south-west and got both left side air defense with 1 jump spell (dropped between storages and xbow)

      • Will Potter

        As you are a new Town Hall 9, I think this is pretty decent. He has Golems level 4 and Lava Hounds level 2. Also, he should be very good at attacking xD.

        • llSmokyll

          yeah i guess that’s the problem. I will keep test the base aniway!

          • Will Potter

            Cool! Looking for your next defense logs mate!

    • Will Potter

      Hi buddy, I don’t think it’s hard to take 2 stars from this base because the Town Hall is vert exposed. However, getting the last star is totally different.

  • Adam

    You said up above there are 8 towers we need to worry about using GoLaLoon. 3 Wizard Towers 3 Air Defenses and the Archer Queen. There’s 4 Air Defenses at th9.

    • Will Potter

      My bad. Thank you man!

      • Adam

        No Prob.

  • E to the B

    “As the attackers, If we want to attack with GoLaLoon, we need to care about 9 units in the enemy base: 4 Wizard Towers, 4 Air Defenses and the Archer Queen.” This is what I see above.

  • E to the B

    How well does this base defend the lighting attack when you lure the cc and then use poison, then drop your lvl6 lightning on the remaining cc, ad and aq, taking them all out at once. I could see the kill squad still coming in the bottom left corner and taking out that other ad. Now your lavaloons have a pretty good chance, even without rage or haste spells.

    • Will Potter

      Sadly we found that Lightning LaLoon strategy after using this base layout LOL. But i haven’t seen any decent LightningLaLoon for months since I used this base. But I think, yes, that strategy would work!

  • Mathew

    triton isn’t old layout? the map is small so it’s before december update?
    triton works after update?

    • Will Potter

      Yup, currently working fine since War attacks don’t get change much after the update. I still have lots of good defenses with this layout Mathew!

      • Mathew

        Nope. Weak layout. First war – 0/2 and mid th9 had 3*

        • Will Potter

          Thank you very much Mathew! This will help the author of this base a lot!

  • Ultimit☆Cuest

    It may be the wrong spot for it, but I want to say something about a new war strategy.
    One of my clan members started using healer wizard pekka, and I immediately threw it away as a simpleminded strategy. lol but once he got 70% (one star though) but another time he got 100%.
    I have yet to see the replay (he just texted me about his success) but maybe there is some future for this. He used 4 healers 2 pekkas rest wizards. He didn’t say he used any wallbreakers. And his king is lv4. No clan castle. Not sure about spells. lv3 healers, lv5 wizards, and lv1 pekkas.
    He took down a mid th8 with that strategy, but maxed air defense. Also, I think this attack works with spread out bases. I’ll fiddle around with this, try to perfect it.
    Will update once I examine the attack.

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much for sharing this my friend!
      I tried Super PEKKA couples of times before, it works pretty well but just after I clear the Air Defenses with the Wizards because the P.E.K.K.A just can’t shot over the walls like our Queen :(.

      • Ultimit☆Cuest

        lol. My clan mate used the healers for the WIZARDS. Thats why I don’t approve of it. However, he used freeze and rage, I’ve been informed, and although he didn’t make the most use out of them, it did seam like a liable strategy. lol I’ll be trying this alaong with valkyrie tornado soon.

        • Will Potter

          Cool! Good luck with your next Wars mate!

  • peter.g15

    Good base design but I was wondering if there was a th8.5 troll base / trap base?

    • Will Potter

      Hi mate,
      I haven’t seen any decent troll base for TH 8.5 because the defense power is just not strong enough. So sorry mate :(.

  • TheKing

    I used to have this base. I dumped it after I started getting 3 starred by fairly straight forward attacks. Problem is this base is a common sight in war, which means there are plenty of tips and videos out there on how to defeat it. 3 attack lanes led by golems followed by wizs and witches is what beat me. Nothing complicated.

  • Cassador

    way to easy 2 star base.

  • Palladin Warior

    This layout realy good work for th 9. But Potter, I hope you post review of GoWiHog Strategy, because I think this is effective strategy for Th9. I always meet it when againt lv.7++ of clan and it is the only one strategy that has totally destroyed this layout (this layout has sometimes meet Gowiho strategy and the last one I meet has succesfully). May be you can review about best timing and place to droop the troop. Thank’s.,

  • Praveen Paul

    How to 3 star this one

    • Will Potter

      Can you show your troops?

      • Puro

        Is the xbow ground or ground/air?

        • Will Potter

          I would love to set them all to Ground and Air :D.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Aldho,

      • Aldho Efbinawan

        And what troop can be use to go to Master League fast and effective ?

      Thank you very much mate!

  • Calvin-Jorishie Stuckey

    This base is AWEFUL! I have a maxed th9 and a th7 attacked me with level 2 drags. Got two stars on me, which is quite embarrassing considering I’m the leader of a level 7 clan. Sorry man, but it’s a major fail. They lightninged the top AD and attacked from the top. Nothing to stop them.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Calvin,
      Thank you very much for the report. As we all know, all anti-3 star bases can be easily 2 starred. You shouldn’t use this base If you don’t aim for the last star.
      Also, I have no idea why you need to care about that attack that much. If their #1 can’t 3 star your base. everything is Okay IMO.

    Performed as promised. Got hit from the top with GoWiWi and they got 60%, as promised. I’m good with this. Anti three star as indicated.

      Very nice. Thank you very much dude! I’m gonna post this defense log into the post above soon!

  • Bambang petrus

    It’s work but I still unsatisfied by it’s result. So I make a minor change, and call this base Neo-Triton. And because I am not the one make Anti 3 star Triton base I will not take any credits.

      Oh and this is the recent defense log

    • Will Potter

      Can you share the defense log mate? Thank you very much!

  • Joshua Lao

    Let’s say you attack from where”smart” attackers attack(’bout 11:00) Once queen starts shooting killsquad, king starts targeting queen, activate the ability then bam, queen is gone. How to beat it(not tested): Govaho from 11 o’clock, place jump on the xbow(so it reaches the core and the 1st set of flawed dgbs. Heal your killsquad at the dgb spot or wherever they need it. While they are in mid, start doing surgical hog, but put a giant first to soak up point defences damage. Heal as needed. *Note: you may do 2 jumps and. 2 heals on the killsquad because of anti-surgical hog features of this base.

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for the great share Joshua Lao! I really appreciate it!
      Yes, this base doesn’t work well against Valkyries as far as I can see but luckily most TH9 players don’t use her :D.

  • Joshua Lao

    The best anti-3 base is the one that is not in the internet. :p

    • Will Potter

      LOL this is very true!

  • TrisTarTom

    Hi, I´ve been using this design from the moment it appeared. Find it good working after I moved the TH a little to the centre..
    Anyway I find on the YT good instructions from Gadi hh on how to three star this base.. and once we had the CW oponent with this layout, I managed it easily.. GoVaHo with 4xES..

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much for sharing this TrisTarTom!
      Yes sure, any internet base can be completely destroyed :). That’s great If you can edit it with your own design via the way you attack it :).

    This is my log from a current war. Its the first attack. I’LL post the other attacks also.

      Wow, very nice. Thank you very much dude!

  • Roberto Kartoredjo

    Hey Will, i have used this layout for awhile and i always get 1 or 2 starred which is awesome. But my last war they took 3 stars. I did change some defs around maybe it was because of that. Not sure but this is what he/she used to 3 star me. Oww and i did put other cc troops in my castle. Witch/Valk/Balloon

      Also, thank you very much for sharing this tho!

      With higher heroes and max defenses this attacker would not have gotten 3 stars, but still a viable attackplan to 3-star this base design.

    Very nice base, I tested it today in war and got some solid defense results!
    TH10 – scored 1 star
    TH11 – scored 2 stars

    I included both defense logs. What really helps is my level of walls (9 and 10), his golems and pekkas wasted time getting from compartment to compartment.

    • Will Potter

      Awesome. Thank you very much for sharing this buddy. I will update this into the main post above soon!

      • Derelictzx

        Another 2-star attack with 62% destruction, this was a good attempt by a maxed TH9 player and shows how well this base is setup. Ofcourse it can be three-starred but it defends well against a variety of attack strategies.

        • Will Potter

          Thank you very much for sharing this Darelictzx, I really appreciate it!

  • Aaron Fukuoka

    Excellent looking layout. Seems to stop a variety of strategies even as a low upgraded th 9. However I want to point out that no base is flawless, and posting strategies this base is weak to might be a very good idea, possibly writing the text in red.

    • Will Potter

      Yup I agree with you. Thanks you very much Aaron!

  • Raizel

    i find this base as my enemy at today war… gotta be looking around here for three-starring this base, lol

    anyway, hi again will 🙂

    • Will Potter

      Hi dude! xD

  • SvenInge Lindgren Weaas

    Shitbase for golaloon. 2 lf can easly be taken down by killsquad and hero. Stop posting horrible bases :/

  • Aaron Fukuoka

    That last storage is the true mvp. Anyways I moved some traps around to trick my attacker. It still does not change the fact that this base is highly vulnerable to valks due to it’s loose, big compartments. I recommend having a base vulnerable to earthquake spells/goho and swapping to that layout last minute before war starts.

    • Will Potter

      xD
      Thanks for sharing this buddy! You rock!

  • Elias Coc

    Thanks.. i will try it

    • Elias Coc

      Will.. what is your recommedation for the castle? Dragon? Wizzards?

      • Will Potter

        Dragon would be great buddy!

    • Will Potter

      Good luck mate!

  • xDabOnEm

    I use this base for my max th 9. Even though I’m max, I still get three started by gowipe in the top center. Can you give a suggestion to fix this?

    • Aaron Fukuoka

      Quad quake can punch big holes in bases, allowing pekkas to wreak havoc in the core. Changing the arrangement of skeleton traps may mess up pekkas as they hit skeletons and not buildings. I swap my teslas and traps around to mess up guys who go on youtube to three star this layout.

  • Brandon Christensen

    How does this base hold up against valk attacks? I have a really good base right now and valks are the ONLY thing 3 starring me. I’m pretty much maxed out besides my walls and heros.

    • Aaron Fukuoka

      Will fall easily to valks. Try the Eagles base (i think it’s called that), it’s anti valk according to its author.

  • Aaron Fukuoka

    4 friendly battles were performed by my clanmates: kingofbcg, Dada, Sinister, and 19ant83. All strategies are different, yet none were able to score 3 stars on me. Do note that many of these strategies are for farming and not for war.

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for sharing this Aaron! I really appreciate it!

  • Is it anti earthquake becoz with my current base I always get 3 starred with 4 eq spells opening the base leading their army right towards the townhall and the rest of the base is then easily destroyed..

    • Aaron Fukuoka

      Check my 4 photos below, 3 out of the 4 friendly battles were done with quad quake, yet no 3 stars. It’s possible they were using valks, as this base is very weak to them.

  • Purushotham Baskarla

    tested this base for atleast 50 wars .. and its 50-0 …..never got 3 starred …simply great

    • Travis Garlick

      You must go against a lot of awful attackers

  • Travis Garlick

    I have 3 starred this base every time I have seen it in war. Never a good idea to use internet bases. I’m glad this base has gotten so popular I can teach our low level TH9s how to 3 star it.

    • Will Potter

      There are tons of ways to 3 star a popular base. I always recommend people design their own layouts :D.
