All about Trophy Pushing

So what is trophy pushing in Clash of Clans?

Trophy pushing or trophy hunting is one of the common activities in Clash of Clans which just focuses on collecting as much as trophies as possible and really doesn’t care about loot.

Why should I do trophy pushing?

I am sure that there are a lot of players who still doesn’t know about the profit of trophy pushing.

Basically, by doing trophy pushing, you can:

  • Improve your skills on new Clash of Clans strategies.
  • Break your personal record.
  • To find a best place for farming.
  • To earn rewards for won matches at top high leagues. (Up to 360k loot and 1200 Dark Elixir for every won match in Champion League).

I strongly recommend that you should go to higher leagues If you are at mid or later Town Hall 10. Because at there, you can train a lot of new strategies with another strong villages.

Before starting pushing your trophies

You need a good trophy base with maximum protection. Sometimes, other players visit your base and lose the battles, you can get a lot of trophies without attacking other villages. A good defensive base can also help you minimize lost trophies after being attacked.
There are a lot of good layouts at the Base Designs section.

The fastest ways to go to the Champion League

Here are some most popular and effective strategies for pushing trophies in Clash of Clans.

  • Barch: Barch = Barbarians + Archers. This is one of the cheapest strategies and requires a small time for training troops. With this strategies, normally you can get 1 star by dragging. Normally, Barch works most effective from Bronze to Crystal III. At higher leagues, there are plenty of hard bases that you hardly can get 1 star by using this strategies.
    I always use 40% Barbarians, 45% Archers and the rest is Wall Breakers. You can change it to the best composition for you. For more details about this one, you can read at Barch Strategy.
  • Balloonion:  This is another quite popular farming strategy in Clash of Clans. With 30 Balloons and the rest is Minions, you can easily get 1-2 stars.
    For using Balloonion, just deploy your Balloons in a line on one side of the base you want to attack then deploy your Minions right after them. With Rage Spells, your Balloons can go into the core easily. Your Minions will stay outside to remove all other buildings.
  • GoWiPe: This is quite expensive strategy but it is one of the most powerful strategies too. I usually use it for Clan War, but before being an elite GoWiPe users, I used it a lot while farming in Champion League.
  • You can see much more other powerful strategies at: Clash of Clans Strategies.

Normally, with just Barch and Balloonion, you can go to at least Master Leagure easily. All you need is having time for playing. Trophy pushing requires a lot of time.

If you are lucky, you will face a lot of farming bases which have the Town Halls outside, all you need to do is just placing your Heroes so they can hit the Town Hall. Sometimes you will face trap bases. They are look like a farming bases but there are a lot of traps and Hidden Teslas next to the Town Hall. Always drop 1-2 small troops for testing first before attacking it with your Heroes.

          Basically you just need to snipe Town Hall + mass drag Archers on bases with lots of buildings outside.

          • Will Potter

            About 12 Giants + 10 Wizards + Barch + 4 Wall Breakers is an easy army composition to break into the core any Town Hall 8 base.
            You can trap your Town Hall a bit when you are above Crystal 3, that can help you somehow.

          • Mirza

        • Kabir Raj Singh

          He said 6 hogs… LOL… xD

          • Will Potter

            Oh I see. LOL

  • Kabir Raj Singh

    I pushed from Silver II to Gold II in just 3 days by Giwipe but i am finding difficult to get more trophies as i am raided every time…

    • Will Potter

      Don’t use GoWiPe If you want to push trophies, for sure. You should use GiBarch. You always can get at least 50% of the base If you can use it properly.

      • Kabir Raj Singh

        Ok mate..Thanks for the suggestion… 😀

  • Hey, I’m a TH5 and in Silver II . I’m trying to push to 1250 trophies for the gems but I just can’t >.> I’m thinking about reaching TH7 and then trophy pushing for the gems. Only problem is that I’ve seen lots of people say that 3 builders fall short at TH7 and you need 4 and you should get the 1250 trophy achievement before TH7… so what should I do?

    • Will Potter

      Just do it buddy! There is no reason to not rush to Town Hall 7. Just do it!

  • Darvin Rio

    4 quakes n heal
    16 giants 9 wiz 1 pekka 4 wall breakers rest barbs…..combined wit king….i almost got to 1966 trophies…..i jst didnt get a good defense base

  • Gaurav Aggarwal

    I m a mid th8 in which league shld i be accrding to u .

    • Matt Cady

      It depends what level your troops are and your base composition. I’ve seen Townhalls as low as 7 reach champion league, but I’d say a mid-TH 8 should be around crystal three.
