The Evolution of a Rusher

Hey guys it’s Ash and this is going to be a special post of my journey as a Clash of Clans player, a player who quickly rushed to the top. There are a lot of people who don’t believe in rushing or just don’t understand the purpose of a planned rusher. Now, This is not a video of me telling you to rush or that rushing is a good idea. It is simply a video showing you guys my quick progression as a player of the game and how I decided to play the game in my own way.

The Evolution of a Rusher

Everyone plays the game in their own certain way, and this is a story of how I decided to play the game. How I enjoyed playing the game and to this day have absolutely no regrets.

I started playing the game on August 4, 2014. I had never played a game like Clash of Clans before so I was really confused at first. I read a few guides and watched some Youtube videos and quickly got hooked.

October 23:

About 2 months had passed and I was quickly a rushed TH9 player and at level 75. The reason I had rushed was simple, I wanted to complete the game as fast as possible. That was my goal, and to do so, I had to rush. If I did not rush, then I would be going at a very slow pace. The game gets harder as you level up, not easier. And I understood that, I was prepared.

The easiest thing to upgrade in this game are your defenses, while the toughest are your Heroes and your Walls. So instead of doing the easy part first, I decided to do the hard part. So that’s why I quickly rushed to TH9, so that I can do the hardest thing in this game first, and that is to level up my Barbarian King and Archer Queen to level 40.

This is also when I created a post about my journey to level 40 Heroes and my Dark Elixir farming guide as well as some video tutorials of my attacks. The post and videos gained a lot of popularity, so I also created my first clan, Altar of Heroes, for people of similar interests. And to this day, Altar of Heroes has become one of the best farming Clans in the game, with an average Gold Grab of 1.5 billion.

If you guys are interested in watching my videos of my journey to level 40 Heroes, I’ll have the link to that playlist in the descriptions.

I had begun upgrading level 10 Walls. I did all my farming without boost. I kept both my Barbarian King and Archer Queen on upgrade at all times by farming Dark Elixir without ever boosting my Barracks. On top of that, I grinded high level walls. I also did this while keeping all 5 of my builders busy. Remember, my goal is to max out my base as fast as possible. To do this, I can’t have any of my builders sleeping around. I had to always keep them busy. So that’s what I did. Even though I had all 5 of my builders busy upgrading, I kept farming to completely fill my storages. By the time one of my builders completed upgrading, I first used all my excess loot onto my walls and then placed that builder immediately back on another upgrade.

My preferred and only method of farming at this time was B.A.M, which consisted of Barbarians, Archers, a few Wall Breakers, and 16 Minions. Because this army trained so quickly, I neglected to ever boost my Barracks. I also had another very important reason to not boost even if had gems or the money to buy gems. And that was a psychological reason. I knew that if I had begun to boost my Barracks, then every time I play the game without boost, I would enjoy it less and become more impatient. I enjoyed playing without boost, and I wanted to keep it that way, and not change my rhythm.

I also immensely enjoyed farming without my Heroes, because it was a bigger challenge using my weak Barbarians, Archers, and Minions to go after that Dark Elixir storage inside the base. I loved it, and knew that it would make me into a better player. If I managed to attack and dismantle a base with weaker troops, then I would certainly be able to do even better once I have stronger heroes and stronger troops for wars. To manage and do all of this, I had to avoid playing in wars. And I was absolutely content with that.

Now as I’ve stated, I prioritized upgrading the hardest upgrades first. But, I also prioritized the most important upgrades first. Because I was farming at such a rapid rate, I really did not mind losing resource on defense because I was able to quickly make up for my losses. So defense was not a priority for me, but that does not mean I neglected upgrading my defenses. I was just focusing on upgrade my offense first, such as my Army Camps, Barracks, and Clan Castle. And keep in mind, I’m doing this on top of keeping 2 Builders on my Heroes. So obviously, with just 3 builders for the other upgrades, it’s going to take a while until I have strong defenses. Not only that, it still hasn’t even been 3 months since I started playing the game.

I also prioritized on the defenses that took longer to upgrade, such as the X-bows, as well as the more important defenses. For example, I prioritized my Cannons last because they’re just the worst defense in the game with their inability to target air troops and slow fire rate. Cannons definitely are not useless, but because they’re the worst defense, I prioritized them the last. So that’s why they were still at a very low level compared to my other defenses such as the X-Bow and Hidden Teslas. I also ignored upgrading Air Defenses for the most part because getting attacked by air attackers was uncommon compared to being attacked by ground. Not only that, even if I had maxed defenses, I would still struggle to defend against a mass Dragon or Balloonion attacker because you needed a lot more than just Air Defenses to defend against those attacks. You needed a concerted effort between all your air-attacking defenses, not just Air Defenses. So I was content with getting demolished by air attackers, because I was only attacked 2 or 3 times a week by an air attacker.

About four and a half months had passed, and I had completed farming 240 level 10 walls, my Barbarian King was level 26 and my Archer Queen was level 28, and I was on my way to Town Hall 10. This was also the time I had started to first boost my Barracks because of the Christmas 1 gem event, so I just had to do it and so I could progress even quicker with my level 10 walls. This was also when I had decided that I was going to gem the timer of my Archer Queen so that I could use her for farming and also get her to level 40 sooner. Why did I make such a big decision now? Well simply because I knew that I had mastered farming and attacking without my Heroes, and I wanted to take the next big jump. Not only that, having both my heroes on upgrade limited my potential. What do I mean by this? Well I was unable to farm for Dark Elixir because both my heroes were on upgrade and I constantly had a full Dark Elixir Storage. So that meant I had to wait. Thus, I decided to instead just gem the timer of my Archer Queen every time I had a full Dark Elixir Storage. And the reason I chose to do this with my Archer Queen and not my King, was because the Queen was just much better for farming with her great range and ability to keep herself unharmed so that I could consistently use her for farming ever raid.

Half a year had passed and I was a TH10 player with level 40 Archer Queen and level 32 Barbarian King along with lots of level 10 and 11 walls. The main reason I had moved on to Town Hall 10 was simply because I had completed all my level 10 walls at TH9 and did not want to waste my time. As well as my Heroes were almost level 30 at TH9, so I moved on to also upgrade my Heroes to level 40 as soon as possible (as the level cap for you Heroes at TH9 is level 30), and of course my priority is the hardest upgrades first.

Now again as a TH10 player, I had once again prioritized upgrading offense first, so my defenses suffered again. I also prioritized upgrading the most important defenses first, such as the new Inferno Towers that I had constantly upgraded to get them to level 3 as soon as possible. So I had a pretty funny and very unusual base like no other. I had level 40 Heroes and level 10 and 11 walls with a bunch of TH7 or 8 level defenses.

During Summer of 2015, my clan Altar of Heroes were in a farming competition against another very hardcore farming clan, Centum. And this when I did one of craziest things in my whole gaming career. I knew that I was one of the best farmers in the game because I put a lot of effort and time mastering and studying the game to understand how I can maximize my efficiency and farm at an insane rate. So I decided to do a 24 hour non-stop farming run and ultimately, I farmed a total of over 84 million Gold in that 24 hour span. It was the first time I had ever done done something like this and it truly was an amazing experience. But I definitely wouldn’t want to do that again.

A year had now passed and I had completed upgrading all my 250 level 11 walls. Ever since I had completed my level 10 walls, I decided to take my time and do about 2 level 11 walls a day. And the reason for this is because I finished the hardest part of the game, which is to upgrade my Heroes to level 40. So I can just lay back now and easily complete the rest of the upgrades, so I only needed to do about 1 or 2 level 11 wall a day while I keep all my builders busy.

And little by little, my defenses started to catch up very quickly. I did a trophy push and made it to top 200 in the USA and also planning on doing another push to legend and probably to the top of the boards when I have the time again.

I had even created a base design that allowed me to defend all the way to Titan League, without having to attack my way up. You can take a closer look at that base at here.

TH11 had arrived right at the point when I was going to be a maxed th10 base. And so the start of another new journey. However this time, I’m taking my time because it really won’t be too long until I’m a maxed TH11 player as there aren’t that many new upgrades here at TH11. The main challenge in the Grand Warden and I currently have him at level 13. Won’t be too long until he’s maxed as well.

So thank you guys for listening to my story about my journey, and maybe I have inspired you in some way. I currently also have a TH9 account, a TH8 account, and a TH7 account so that I can upload strategy content on this channel for all my subscribers of different TH level. And I frequently upload great content, sharing my vast knowledge and experience of the game. So if you enjoyed this video, don’t forget to give it a thumbs up and also subscribe if you haven’t as well as maybe explore the vast library of strategic videos I have uploaded onto this channel. Be sure to also share this with your friends and clanmates. So I’ll see you guys again soon, have a great day! Later!

  • Ben Chapman

    Ash, I’ve been following your site for quite some time. Reading this article made me kind of want to rush to Town Hall 9. I’m currently a Town Hall 8. Based on your suggestion on another article the only things left are my Teslas (3 Level 5) and Hog Rider (Level 2 on upgrade to 3). That’s like a month. My walls are all maxed out. Should I wait or just rush for the Queen? Thanks.

  • Al Harun Abdullah

    Thnx for sharing…..got some motivation and ideas from your post as I am doing an experiment with my TH 8.5…..lets see……

    Anyway, didn’t receive my gift code, yet. :D.

    • Arnab Gharay

      What bro?

    • Arnab Gharay

      I was thinking about going there.. Can you show me your base screen shot ?

      • Al Harun Abdullah

        Here u go…..

        • Arnab Gharay

          Nice ,is th8.5 still working ? Wish i could talk with u

          • Al Harun Abdullah

            I intend to experiment with the concept of doing the hard ones first…..Will do the wall later after finishing the existing defenses first….or in between…..

        • Arnab Gharay

          Picture is bit hazy ,cant see.. But u did not skull the wall ?

    • Will Potter

      Hmm what giftcode buddy?

      • Al Harun Abdullah

        Mentioning about the gems giveaway…….

  • Arnab Gharay

    Hey bro.. I really really like the way u farm, i started doing gibarch by seeing you. I am not perfect but trying to do the funnel thing u do with ur barb and arch.. Can you make a small episode with that,how to do proper funneled ?

  • Kakashi

    Hi Ash! i’m in Champ league level 3 and i want to max my heroes before i jump to th10…. is BAM troops combination to farm D.E still effective here?

    • Will Potter

      B.A.M is definitely one of the best farming strategies but you just can’t always get 1 Star with it. You shouldn’t use it otherwise you can’t maintain your trophies.

      • Kim Kakashi

        Thanks will! you’re absolutely right and it’s hard to farm here in higher league without Archer Queen… hope we can use our heroes in farm and war even they’re currently upgrading…

        • Will Potter

          Yea we all want that for sure but we need to deal with it :(. Supercell needs to do something to make money, right? LOL

          • Kim Kakashi

            imagine how many players use gems everyday for heroes just to heal them so they can execute more attacks in farm… the more we use the more they earn… you know what i mean ^_^

          • Will Potter

            Yup I know but truly I don’t want anything more than that :D.
            I just want Supercell to work on the game more, release more troops and more stuffs, make it always fresh!

  • insan fahmi

    my regret is, i don’t read ash journey sooner. i wasting my time staying at townhall 8 for a long time. and now im on my journey, getting my maxed heroes. And i just want to share, maxing your heroes at th9 is not as tough as u think, really. the biggest problem is time. even if you have unlimited dark, you need almost 6 months upgrading each hero.

    And here, i want to share my mindset, i think our mindset is important, if you think upgrading heroes is hard, no matter how easy it is, you will always find it hard. But, even if upgrading heroes is hard, once you think that upgrading heroes is easy, you will always find it easy.

    remember this, if you want to upgrade your heroes at the same time, up until lvl 20, you ONLY need to farm dark 25k each day.
    25k dark is not that hard, right? even with Bam sniping the drill you can get around 10-15k / hour. so you had to play about 2-3 hours / day to upgrade both your heroes up to lvl 20.

    up until lvl 25, you only need farm dark 30k @day (2-3 hours play)

    up until lvl 30, you only need farm dark 40k@day (even with 10k dark/hour, you only need 4 hours)

    another thing is, you need to separated them around 3-4 days. why? because, when you farm dark, usually u got gold too. and you need idle builder to dump your resources into the wall. you just can’t simply farm dark, when your gold storage is full, you will not want to waste it.

    • Kakashi

      Thanks for the info Insan ^_^ but There’s no advantage to hurrying through life. i don’t care if i need 6 months or a year to get my maxed heroes… if i have maxed heroes in th9 there’s a big chance that i can 2s th10 and 3s max th9…

      • insan fahmi

        i think we have different mindset.

        1. its all about priority management. sometimes there is no advantage hurrying, but sometimes there is. is there an advantage, hurrying pursuit of succes? Yes, absolutely, there is !!!

        cmon, in this live, who don’t want to be rich as soon as possible? faster is better rights?

        for me, your logic may work on defenses and walls things.
        “i don’t care how many months or years, maxed my defense and walls, as long as i get maxed troops and heroes as soon as possible” i play for attack, i don’t give a damn about defense moreover walls.

        2. my only reason hurrying upgrading heroes is, because i want 3 starred maxed th10 and next is th11. And i understand, i need high lvl heroes to do that constantly. beside troops and strategies ofcourse.

        im th9 now, and i could 2s th10 and 3s max th9 already. But, i aim for the bigger picture. 3s th10 and then 3s a th11. whats good getting only 2s?

        i am a man with ambition, even if in the game. i wanna beat the maxed base, and i want to see it flat, not only aim for winning. 2 star will never satisfied me, its as good as full black star for me. i want 3 star maxed base in this game. i wanna beat the strong one.

        • Kakashi

          I’m Kim Kakashi i’m going to become stronger than anyone around.

          • insan fahmi

            with the system of the game we played. eventually, everyone will become strong. But, the real question is “how long?”

          • Kim Kakashi

            i can’t say how long chief… top players now playing coc for a years and i’m sure some of them using gems most of the time…

          • insan fahmi

            im not talking about them, im talking about everyone. Every players have same destination, but every players have different efforts. So the answer of those question is “the efforts towards it”.

          • Kim Kakashi

            Thank you for your support! see you on top.

          • insan fahmi

            sorry, u just said this before in your statement ” There’s no advantage to hurrying through life……..”

            you will not see me on top. Because u take long time getting there. By the time you reach it, i must have retired already, because i will be bored staying on it.

          • Kim Kakashi

            retired already? LOL! early for you to say… even you maxed th11 there are still dark troops to come out soon… COC is our stress reliever and we won’t stop…

          • insan fahmi

            exactly, thats why i said i will bored. supercell update on the game is slower than my progress. it will bored me in the end. and i don’t plan to play it like forever. Also its not my stress reliever, its only part of my entertaint that will easily replaced if i found something more fun.

            im not an simple-minded boy, im an realistic man.

            maybe you are too young to understand, but, did you ever heard a phrase that nothing last forever?
            you may said that you won’t stop now, because you are still enjoying it. But the day will come, when you had to stop, no matter what the reason is. And if you are wise enough, all of my saying todays will come to make your sense.

            Your words determine who you are. To me you seems just like young boy that still trapped in his naivity. And here is a little advice for you.

            Get out of your room, and get a life.

            cheers…. =D

          • Kim Kakashi

            Suit yourself Chief ^_^ cheers!

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for the great comment as always mate! I really appreciate it!

  • Arnab Gharay

    Hey ash, i really like ur hybercube of th9 ,tried to make one for th8 , i am thinking that extra archer queen make the defence better. 😀 so wil. Go th8.5 soon as i done with my war troops.

    • insan fahmi

      in my opinion. you wasting your time staying at th 8. all those elixir may go to lego wall if you are on th9. if i were you, i already hammered my townhall.

      And for your information, i use hypercube IX too, and you wrong if you think extra archer queen make the defence better. why? because you will busy upgrading your queen, and she will have no time to defend your base. and if you did it correctly, by the time your queen ready to defend your base, is the time that you should move to next th lvl. So in my opinion, if you do managing everything rights, you will have no defending queen at th9. (the time needed for upgrading all defenses, army and heroes will finish almost at the same time)

      except….. if you want low lvl queen defend your base….

      • Arnab Gharay

        Bro my pekka in lvl 1, my mini in2, and the spells are not updated.. Should i go ?

        • insan fahmi

          i think yes, in th9 pekka only capped at lvl 3, while minion is lvl 5. its not that hard to get to it, also, you may upgrade it while upgrading townhall or before upgrading laboratory when you reach th9.

          Also there are lot better troops combination to 3star at th9, you are not limited to pekka and hogs only. if you already have lvl 4 hog, its better to upgrade it first. and playing goho, much guaranteed to 3 star against early and mid th9 than gowipe.

          i think, you need to manage your upgrade priority first. If you have managing everythings right, even progressing in rushed is much faster than normal one.

          to put it simple is like this, if you continue the way you are now. in the next 1 or 2 month, you will become fresh th9 that spend some million elixir to extinction, with probably lvl 2 queen. and th8 troops

          if you upgrade your townhall right now, in the next 1 or 2 month.
          you already spend those elixir, maybe on legos, or maybe on camp, or barracks, or drill, or even get better war army than pekka. And what is more, depend of your gameplay, you already have minimum lvl 6 queen, even better, if you have good gameplay, you will already have around lvl 10 queen.

          the problem staying for too long at th8 is.
          Elixir and Dark Elixir going nowhere….
          the building needed, labs and heroes, get easily done.

          and its okay if staying too long at th9.
          those extra elixir may be dumped into walls, and you will always need dark elixir for heroes.

          • Arnab Gharay

            buddy thanks , i made up my mind , i will go th9

      • Rómulo Escobar

        That’s right! I’m th8.5 and I also use Cube, and my Queen doesn’t help me too much in defense, because she has been sleeping since level 1… Now she is at level 9 and tomorrow is gonna start the level 10 upgrade. Yeah Ive never used her in any raid… No yet xD

        • insan fahmi

          nice one, good luck. currently my queen on sleeping beauty state too.

          and i cant wait the moment when i can fuck with her…

  • Edan Hilario’us Other Side

    hi will! what’s the clan of Ash?

    • Will Potter

      It’s Altar of War mate!

  • Wendell Lanphear

    i have a question. If you were not going to max th8 and go to th9, what would you suggest you have upgraded before making that decision

    • insan fahmi

      in my opinion, all of your elixir building, and dark elixir(heroes). for lab, as long as it is doesn’t stop whatever it is you upgrade doesn’t matter, but i suggest to just upgrade the troops that you needs, whether for farming, or for war, but if you want to focus into upgrading your heroes, you should upgrade war troop lastly.

      just think th8 and th9 is a same th lvl. if you have 5 builders. Just do this

      2 builders for heroes.
      and the rest is focused into elixir building.
      if you don’t have enough elixir.
      spend your existing gold into most expensive defenses you can up, preferrably, the most longest time.

      and always, before your builders start upgrading, dump remaining gold into walls first.

      and another thing, just remember this theory, if you want to always upgrading both of your heroes.
      up until lvl 20, you only need to farm 25k dark/day. or in another words, you had to farm 12k dark/12 hours or in another words again only around 1k dark/hour….

      its easy right? to get both of your heroes together, you only need farm 1k dark/hour.

    • Will Potter

      You should buy your Archer Queen immediately xD.

  • Minhaz Sourav

    This is insane … We have things to do also except COC… BUT I m constantly upgrading my Heroes together 😀 Its really fun… Focused only on DE… 3 starring in war almost always using Lavaloon (No Hero) and Goho/GoLava/GoValo/GoVaHo (weekly when Heroes got up :p ) { I m Using B.A.M. and I play generally 1 Hour daily with 2 Barrack boost and gain ~20K DE at least.. } King 24 and Queen 21 after 7 months of Clashing. I m happy with my progreess strategically 🙂

    • Will Potter

      After just 7 months? Wow that’s awesome!

      • Minhaz Sourav

        🙂 Thanks.. May b level 10 walls will give me trouble as I m just focused on DE and play very specific tiny times with boost daily…. 8 months will be completed after 2 weeks.

        • Will Potter

          Badass! Awesome!

  • Adam

    Huh I’m thinking about rushing now… Town Hall 8, should I upgrade my walls to lvl 7 first? I think I probably should. I really want to get to TH9 so bad!

    • insan fahmi

      You don’t need to upgrade it. really.
      im th9 with lvl 6 walls, and im doing just fine.
      And i regret that i had stay in th8 for long time. if only i had go to th9 several months early, by now i must already have maxed heroes

      another thing is for th9 against th9, the amount of walls breaker needed to destroy lvl 6-8 wall is the same. 2 wall breakers

      • Adam

        Okay, Town Hall 9, here I come!

      • 1hentho

        Walls are the main difference between me 3 starring a TH9 and not 3 starring a TH9. I get through the first 2/3 layers of wall with jump/earthquake/WB, but the last few peices of walls my golems and pekkas usually have to get through themselves. With lvl 6 walls I would 3 star, with lvl 9/10 I would not.

        • insan fahmi

          exactly, the problem is from attacker point of view. for defender walls is basically useless, there must be always stronger or skilled players able to 3 starred our base. And this players are only minority from all players.

          And the point is, if we just can defend well against majority of attackers with lvl 6/7 walls. Why should we mind lvl 9/10 wall that may be useful against minority attackers?

          why did i said i just fine? the reason is simple. with my lvl 6 walls, im only get 3 starred once in last 3 month, whether im in champ or when im in silver.

          Also, In this game, you just cant simply make your base unbeatable. no matter how strong your walls are.

          And i don’t mean to say that walls is useless, actually walls is good. But the problem is, if you are not a hardcore farmer, the best way to put upgrading walls on the priority list is in the end of it.

          Another thing why should we put upgrading walls lastly. In this picture below of me defending, what is the difference if i had lvl 10 walls? Nothing….

          • 1hentho

            Ahh, you are on about raids. I was meaning for in War where people always attack with a full army and a planned attack. I’m sureMost of my TH9s in my clan would 3 star a TH9 with lvl 6 walls every time.
            While raiding, I am in champ and only go for 1 or 2 star anyway (to maintain trophies and get loot bonus)

          • insan fahmi

            aah i see.

            1. If you read it before, we did talk about th8 that want to move up into th9. and its not fair, you did compare it with maxed th9. So, the thing is, even if this guys magically have walls lvl 9 on the first month of th9, basically he will still be 3 starred,because he will still have th8 defense to defend. So basically, lvl 9 and lvl 6 walls have no difference on defending.

            2. lets talk about war thing.
            there are 2 type of players in the war. There are good attackers, and there are bad attackers.

            lets say the people who attack you is good attackers, No matter how strong you are, good attackers may always 3 starred you even if you have maxed wall. If you could be 3 starred, whats the benefit of having maxed walls, compared with low lvl walls?

            and lets skip my explanation for bad attackers, they cant even 3 starred th8

            3. And for your case, you said with gowipe walls lvl 9/10 gaves you trouble, and lvl 6 not. if you paid attention to your troops. tell me, after you reach the core how many walls that gives you trouble to destroy in order to 3 starred it? After reaching the core, Out of 200++ walls, obviously your gowipe only need to break around 5 walls only right? thats mean, the other walls is practically useless, there is no difference between it if the rest of the walls is lvl 10 or lvl 6.

            practically, From 100% of the walls, only 2,5% of it is that useful..
            like buying 1Kg of Wagyu Steak, and you only eat 25 gram, and you dump the rest. What a waste??????

            how about if we got attacked by airtroops or hogs, which is very popular on th9??? the answer is clear, 99% of usefulness.

            4. lets talk about economy, principal of economy is, with minimum efforts gaining maximum profit.

            some of players may not realized it, but we did “payed” for playing this game. And the problem is, we paying with something precious than a money. Yes it is TIME !!!!

            for th9 with lvl 10 walls, you need around billion gold. Lets say you need 600M gold grab in order to complete it, because you could upgrade it with elixir too. if you could farm 10M gold a day, thats mean you need 60 days to complete it. and like i said before, only 2,5% of it thats useful. In Other words, for working 60 days, you only got paid for 36 hours !!!!!

            Again…… What a waste……

            well, for me is. i don’t care if someone 3 starred my th9 base with lvl 6 walls in war, as long as i can give my clan 6 stars even against opponent with lvl 10 walls.

          • Adam

            I think I would upgrade my the walls on the inside, because the chance that you won’t get the 3 star because your walls on the outside are level 6 is tiny. I also think the reason you have to upgrade all your walls is simply because you don’t know which ones will be attacked by troops (besides the case of inside and outer walls).

          • Will Potter

            Yup. I always recommend placing better walls inside :D.

        • Adam

          Yeah, that’s why I’m always really confused when I see someone with level 7 or 8 outside walls and 5 or 6 inside walls.

    • Will Potter

      You can always go to TH9 and get the Queen!

      • Adam

        🙂 Well I just joined Altar of Trials so we’ll see what they think.

        • Will Potter

          Good luck Adam!

          • Adam

            I’m not very close to maxed so they said not to rush cause I don’t play a lot.

          • Will Potter

            Hmmm good luck to you the next time! If you join the Altar family, you can easily chat with me in the Skype chat group :D.

          • Adam

            Okay, um where is the Skype chat group? Cause I already joined the Altar family. (I have a Skype account but I haven’t used it in a billion years.)

          • Will Potter

            You should add Ash’s Skype and them he will invite you to the group!

  • blu J

    whoa!! that’s totally insane!!

    that’s a different style of playing this game and believe me, this has made me have some respect for the guys who rush!
    nice!!

    • Will Potter

      Smart rushers are always the best players! xD

  • AkaShogun

    yeah i really hate when i met those smart rushers in the clan wars. Android

    • Will Potter

      Please don’t comment Android outside the specific page! Thank you very much!

  • Fulioso skys

    Im a max defense th9 and im in titan 3 now, i just realized that i was pushing trophies when i reached champions 1, at first i was just doing loot bonus farming strategy in champions 3 and i stayed there untill the no-free-shields update after that my trophies started to acumulate so naturally that now pushing is how my game is. Nowadays i just chill, upgrade heroes and walls and raid i don’t even war anymore i went through 2 months without being in a clan. I became a pusher without realizing. o/

    • Will Potter

      Badass xD.

    • Daniel M. Ramos

      Wow, what does your defense log look like now? Could you show us what base design you are using? What kind of army do you hunt with. A TH 9 Titan is no easy task. You have to share! ?

      • Fulioso skys

        Most attacks i receive are from TH 11 so they are most 3 star, my queen is always sleeping so i go with Gowipe against other TH 9s about the base design i just changed it yesterday to this one http://cocland.com/base-layouts/themis-trophy-troll-base-for-th9-10

        • Daniel M. Ramos

          What, you leave your TH exposed? I take those types of base’s out with a few Giants and a bunch of goblins all the time and leave them less than 30% for nonstick just to spite.

          • Will Potter

            Leaving TH outside at Champion leagues and above as a TH9 is not a bad idea at all because you always get completely ripped :(.

          • Daniel M. Ramos

            The problem is anybody can rip that design, even a TH 8.

      • Fulioso skys

        That -41 is from the new layout

        • Daniel M. Ramos

          Nice defense log.

        • Will Potter

          xD

  • 1hentho

    Talking of ‘Smart Rushing. I have a question. If I built 1 lvl 1 cannon, 0 walls, 0 defences, went up to TH9 and upgraded all elixer buildings to max, queen and king to max, troops to max, where would I be placed in war? Obviously 1 dragon would destroy my base, but would I be against the TH4s with 5/6 defences or against higher?
    Cheers,

    • Will Potter

      You wouldn’t rank higher than a TH5 in Clan War as far as I know :D.

    • insan fahmi

      there are a lot of people going like this, defenseless base, even th10 (for th11, never seen one)…. And i feel sorry for them…

  • Daniel M. Ramos

    Wait a minute, is this about rushing or geming?

    • insan fahmi

      it is rushing. This person is crazy farmer. the only reason he is forced to buy gems is because his storage is full. He gaisn more than he can holds. Did you ever feel, you have maxed gold and dark. And you need to wait builders for 3 days?

    • Will Potter

      Rushing. LOL xD.

  • Aaron

    Should i upgrade to TH8 ? I’m TH7 now,Elixir troops are lvl 4 all of them except Dark Elixir troops are still lvl 1 Spells are lvl 4

    • Will Potter

      Yes, sure, no problem at all. Just upgrade to TH8 mate!

      • Aaron

        Okay Ty 😀

        • Will Potter

          😀 You are very welcome mate!

  • Herald

    I was play ing coc for 8 months. Still iam only level60 what to do????

    • Will Potter

      Hmm I have no idea why you care about the level that much :D.

      • Herald

        When I see rushers I feel I am not progressing. Even though I don’t play like professionals or do not use gems I play some time .I need to max out fast.But Supercell is adding more nd more.,

        • Will Potter

          That makes the game more interesting mate 🙂

  • Jergens

    I have my th rush acc

    • Will Potter

      Nice

    • Hari

      but , that cant be called a rushed base … you need to have lvl4 walls 😉

    • Hari

      oh yes ! no defences

  • Hari

    Hey guys , its Hari again to guide you to RUSH !!!
    HOW TO BUILD A SUCCESSFUL RUSHED BASE :

    Yes , a great , fancy rushed base . They are avesome , and it lets you know all the cool tatics of the players in higher leagues and town hall …. There are some basic tips for you to build a cool rush base …

    UPGRADE YOUR COLLECTORS :
    They are the only source of your income because you just cant destroy any base you see…

    YOU NEED TO MANAGE YOUR STATUS IN YOUR CLAN :
    People may make fun you and may decrease your reputation in the clan . If you are ready to face this problem , then start rushing .

    NEVER EVER PARTICIPATE IN CLAN WARS :
    You will be the reason for the defeat in your clan war because you can neither attack , nor defend 🙁

    FARM 24X7
    To get maximum amount of resources , faster , and rush quickly , you need to farm with specific troops and base layouts

    YOU CANT AFFORD TO UPGRADE WALLS AND DEFENCES … SO ,
    Make an avesome trap base ! you need good skills and tatics . to build a good trap base , make a path for the troops in your village , and place all the traps on the way !
    You can make trap bases from TH5 onwards

    GOBARCH IS YOUR POWER
    It means goblins , barberians and archers . these are great tier 1 troops the may be useful to raid dead/collector bases . always max these troops ONLY .

    CHOOSE YOUR BASE LEAGUE
    You need to choose the league that suits you and enables you to get more loot . According to me , silver3 is the best one

    Just unlock all troops … at least in one barrack

    SO FOLLOW THESE AND ENJOY RUSHCLASH !

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much Hari! I really appreciate it!

  • zaq qaz

    Hello,, did u know what league is best for farming dead bases for rusher th 9?? Please help me.

    • Will Potter

      Definitely you can find a lot of inactive bases in Silver leagues mate!

      • zaq qaz

        yeah im in silver 1 but it takes soo much time to search for dead base although im using xmod. Please help.

        • Will Potter

          Can you try to go down to Silver 3?

          • zaq qaz

            okey i try

          • zaq qaz

            heyy i have tried and its much worse. even it have dead base but the loots is too little.

          • Will Potter

            Hello mate,
            I am so sorry but Silver has the highest number of dead bases for sure :(.

          • zaq qaz

            is it because im a rusher th9 that i cant find dead bases

      • zaq qaz

        and before when i was th 8 it was so much easier to find dead base from silver to gold

  • Nadeem Ahmad
