How to weigh your base in Clan Wars – Updated Sheet

The Clan War matchmaking system in Clash of Clans bases the way it works on the data which is called “weight”.ย  The total weight of all the villages which join the War of your Clan decides who will be your next competitor!

For example, Assuming that your Clan’s weight in this War is 5000 so the enemy Clan’s weight should be approximately 5000!

Fastest and easiest way

If you just observe a little more while playing Clash of Clans, you can notice that the amount of loot in your storages in the War base is totally different than the farming base. Somehow, I know that number correlates highly with the weigh of the base.

As you can see in two screenshots below, the two amount of loot of this base are totally different!

War Weight Example

To weigh any base in Clan War, just sum the available of either Gold Gold or Elixir Elixir from 4 Storages and the Town Hall, also plus 1000 from the Town Hall, you will have the weight of the base.

For example: The weight of my base in Clan Wars = Goldx4 + Gold(TH) + TH = 114227 x 4 + 114227 + 1000 = 572135.

Note:

  • The weight of your Clan in War is the total weight of all joined members.
  • If 4 Storages of a base don’t have the same level, just check every single one and combine them all.
  • At Town Hall 9 and above, the Town Hall can be counted as the 5th Storage, so the formula will look like this: Goldx5 + 1000

By understanding the weigh of base in Wars and how the matchmaking system works, there are more and more players applying the Town Hall 8.5 and 9.5 trick to prevail in Clan Wars.

  • Clasher X7

    So we can only calculate the weight of our base when we are at war? Because you took the gold capacity from the top screenshot (screenshot of a base in a clan war)

    • Will Potter

      HI X7!
      Basically your weight doesn’t change until you upgrade or buy new defensive buildings!

      • Clasher X7

        So, I just need to look at the elixir and gold storage, add 4 of the values, and add another 1000 right? I’ll try to calculate it in the next war. But the weight is only affected by defensive buildings? So if I upgrade my walls, storages or other things, it won’t make me place higher in the clan war hierarchy?

        • Mikesamwel

          According to his numbers if you upgrade your walls you will carry more weight in clan wars.

  • Andy

    I am a bit confuse. I thought the weight based on defense building level and how many defense building you have

    • Will Potter

      Yes, exactly Andy! I have mentioned it above!
      And this is the way to see the weight of your base!

      • Andy

        I understand now. That gold thing is the way to show our total defenses rank in value.

        So what about non defense buildings ? Is that add the value if we upgrade it ?

        • Will Potter

          Almost not! Just defensive buildings.
          You can read more about that here: http://cocland.com/guides/town-hall-8-5-and-9-5-guide

          • Andy

            I see. oh 1 more question please… What if you upgrade your TH to 9, build more defense “but” you dont make change to your active war base and still using your old TH 8 war base. Is that still add the value ?
            Sorry for my dumb question and thank you ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Will Potter

            I remember some players tried to test as you said above before and it didn’t work, the weight still increased.

          • Andy

            Got it, thanks will potter ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Kapil Vaidya

    How exactly does the matchmaking work in clash?

    • Will Potter

      The Matchmaking works like I mentioned above, it will find the enemy team which has approximately weight as your Clan.

      • Kapil Vaidya

        Oh Alright! Thanks mate

        • Will Potter

          You are very welcome buddy!

  • Kishan

    before i start clan war – i will tell my clan members to empty their 4 storages, so that i can get a weaker opponent. then 100% our clan wins war. is it correct?

    • Will Potter

      No, you get it wrong buddy.
      No matter what is your real amount of Gold, your weight will never change. The weight is based on your defenses, not your Gold!

      • Kishan

        oops…now i got it, i opened excel sheet just now.

        • Will Potter

          Okay buddy ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Jeen yiss

            Buddy

      • Tanishq Aggarwal

        That’s correct! Your weight is a product of body mass and gravity of earth, i.e.,

        Weight = Body Mass x 9.8

        So even if you have 0 resources, your weight will remain the same. It will remain the same, if you take part in clan war or not. JK ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Will Potter

      Nope, just X4 the Gold Storage and + 1000 from the Town Hall or you can follow the accurate way above!

  • Sumukan Setty

    I’ve observed that sum my clan TH levels will be ~= sum of opponent TH levels.

      I haven seen a 10 TH8.5 Vs. 10 TH8 War so I am not really sure!

  • tengski

    thank you for all your hardwork. ive been reading all your post ever since, especially th8.5, im a max th8 going to8.5. upon reading this post. it all makes sense to me now, the thing, the debates, etc about .5`s.

    question: does the weigh change?
    1. building or upgrading a new/old defensive building before searching war, and canceling those buildings on the preparation day.
    2. building or upgrading a new/old defensive building on the preparation day.
    lastly. if question 1 and 2 added weights, will those added weights still appear on the war day or the next war or maybe permanently be added to your weight? even canceling the upgrade? if no, just ignore this last question.
    i dont mean to complicate things.
    tnx

  • James Rugley

    Just did a bit of testing. A TH3 with 2 cannons and nothing else upgraded was ranked higher in war than a TH7 with level 2 dragons, level 4 spells and no defenses(except the cannon from the tutorial). Does the weight only account for the amount of loot or is your ranking in war not based on weight?

    • Will Potter

      Basically 2 level 4 Spells are heavier than 2 level 4 Cannons.
      In this case, that TH3 can’t rank higher than the TH7.
      The rank in War is based on the weight.

      • James Rugley

        But it did. So…might there be an error in the calcs you got? And FIY, the cannons were all level 1.

        • Will Potter

          I think that was a glitch or something like that.
          Gonna think about it. Thank you James!

  • MrCrick

    So basically a maxed Heal Spell affects the matchmaking more than a maxed Queen… Seriously?

    • Will Potter

      That’s right. But think about it, you can’t go to TH9 without at least level 3 Healing Spell!

  • Louis Kim

    How about the level of the town hall? It doesnt make sense to me that town hall level has no effects on your weight..

    • Will Potter

      It doesn’t affect at all. Think about it? If you don’t upgrade your Town Hall, how can you get new stuffs?
      There is no sense to stay at Town Hall 7 or 8 or even 9.

      • Louisnator

        Thanks for the reply.. So town hall 2 and town hall 9 can weight the same given no defenses, no heros, and no upgrades on army camps?

        • Will Potter

          That’s right.
          And that can never be a big deal at all. That TH9 is totally useless lol.

  • Louisnator

    About the gold in the gold storage in war base as a players total weight.. It seems weird.. on my previous war (looking at war log), each of my gold storage had about 18000 (so total weight will be 18000*4 + 1000 by your calculation). However, for the war that we just declared last night, each storage has 575390 gold. which is nonsense.. any ideas?

    • Mikesamwel

      When war started did it adjust back to the lower amount?

  • Brian Chernick

    These weights are NOT correct. The TH does have weight as do the other non def and attack buildings. I just upgraded to TH9 and it caused me to pass another member in my clan. His walls were better, his teslas were 2 levels higher, and his wizard towers were two levels higher. The wizard towers alone carry enough weight by the sheet to make my jump impossible. The only items I added when upgraded were the archer queen, and the new storage. Mu collectors were also of a higher level. So these other items MUST have weight.

    • Mikesamwel

      If this is true I agree

      Hi Zack. I think you did it wrong.
      You need to change the number level to be yours then the weight will be automatically calculated.

  • seipsirc

    So, on my first account I am making out th8 and my mini is just finishing up th7 in a few days and don’t want to go the normal route of maxing each building one by one. I’m getting interested in war weighting and need some help for my 2nd account. For my 2nd account(th7) I want to completely skip th8 and go to th9 after getting level 5 barch. I used Moskri’s weighting system and got a number of about 39k calculating all my th7 defenses with the troops and spells I’m going to use to at th9. I took this as a th9.5.5 with me gonna upgrade the walls to lvl 8. With 39k weight points, can you tell me what will I face up against? Comment below for more info because I’m very interested.

    • Will Potter

      You will face a Town Hall 8 in Clan Wars buddy. That’s for sure.

      • seipsirc

        Thanks

  • Wouter S.

    during war preparation the amount of gold available in a war village seems exactly the same as the amount of gold available in the normal village. Maybe your trick only counts during the 24 hours of war itself?

    • Will Potter

      Oh ya I forgot to mention this. Thank you very much buddy!
      Yep, we can just see it in the War Day.

    Are these weights good from the last update?

      The second Air Sweeper Spell has the same weight as the first one. I still don’t have the exact number of DE spells but as I have known so far they don’t really cost much!

      • Greg Daviet

        My matchmaking score seems to be off by ~1,000 each per level of poison and earthquake. Could that possibly be right?

          I am not really sure about this. I am trying to get the data about these new spells buddy. Gonna update it as soon as possible!

        • Frank

          I have found that to also be true, the dark spells seam to add 1 – 2k. It is hard to figure though because the score is rounded.

    • Ronny Seffner

      I’ld also like such an update or at least to know the weight of the dark spells.

      • Will Potter

        I haven’t seen any decent data about the new Dark Spells. All I know now is that they don’t affect your weight much!

  • Francescript

    There is something wrong with this calculator.
    I’m a th10 with lv 40 aq, 170 lv11 walls but most of my structures are th9 lv.
    My friend has instead, nearly maxed structures but lv 20 heroes and lego walls.
    My weight is 90.000+, his 92.000+ but still, i’m over him in clan wars.
    We both have lv1 dark spells, his troops are better than mine too

    • Will Potter

      Hi Francescript,
      Are his troops the same as yours?

      • Francescript

        Pretty same, here a screen

  • Exodus

    Hi. Does the calculator only work with TH8 and above? Our clan has a maxed-out TH6, and according to the calculator, the most weight a max TH6 can have is 19334. But on the war map, the sum of that base’s 2 gold storages is 29000 (plus 1K in TH). So is his war weight 30K (from gold storage observation and also the amount available to his attacker during war) or 19K (from calculator)? Thanks.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Exodus.
      I am so sorry about this because I haven’t tested it under TH8 yet. IMO we really don’t need to care about weight at TH7 and lower because you can always 3 stars the enemy base with Dragons.

  • Arsalan

    Hi Will,
    I’ve been reading all the comments all day long… and I am right now so confused..
    sorry for Questioning the same questions all again…
    I am Maxed in TH8, that is building, Towers, walls…etc… All Maxed as of TH8. I just got my TH9 built… now for 8.5 TH, I should be doing upgrade my current building that include all Towers, storages, walls, canon, motors, Spell Factory, Lab etc. and Not getting any new troops or Towers, traps?
    Am I right?
    Thanks,
    Arsalan

    • Will Potter

      Yep that’s right buddy.
      And upgrade your walls to just level 9. IMO level 8 walls are good enough for Clan Wars against other TH8 players!

  • Guest

    i just check on the data and it seems for a correct weight you musst add to the weight data of your sheet the total amount of HP of the all heroes and buildings except walls.
    It sums up to about the same nummer you get from adding all gold plus all elixir plus 10x the dark elixir in the war base.
    I got good results and it works for all TH levels.

    • Will Potter

      Except walls?
      But I have a TH10 friend, his defenses are just like a Town Hall 8 but his walls are all maxed out, and he stands as #1 in Clan Wars, before couples of other decent TH10 players

      • Guest

        maybe walls have a greater influence than I thought but I am certain that the HP of all buildings, especially non defence, also counts to the total weight and has to be taken in account

        • Adonis Macias

          walls count more than def bldg, in my previous clan we have 20 TH9 and 10 of them are max def with lvl 8 and 9 walls and my TH9 is not max def but I do have a lot of lvl 10 walls and I ranked #1 of all TH9 on the war.

          • Will Potter

            I agree. Walls are always a big deal in Clan Wars.

  • Haywood Udume

    i don’t know…I look at an opponent and his storages are 20k, so that weights out to 80,000. I put in all his defenses and they add up to 47700. Where is the other 33k coming from? I don’t know his tesla levels, but that is only 4 defenses and couldn’t be more than 2800….that’s a lot of unexplained weight.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Haywood.
      You can understand it like this “Those ways to count your weight is totally different, you can’t compare them with each other”.

    • Frank

      You have to include not just defenses but traps, offensive troops, and spells into the equation. You also have to add the total number of walls of each level.

  • bactgudz

    This has been shown time and time again to be a futile exercise. The war weighting system is not linear…so linear models like Moskri’s that assign a specific weight to a specific defense are just plain wrong. Try this experiment: A max TH6 has a war weight of 30k, if you literally double the defenses and walls of that TH6, you do not end up with a war weight of 60k, you get far less…60k is the war weight of a mid-course th8.5-9 with the extra defs upgraded to max but no xbows, much much stronger than double the defense of a max th6.

  • Jay Gibson

    Can you provide any information on what impact the earthquake spells have on baseweight?

  • AVID FAN

    nice guide. got a couple of questions. do you have an exact increment/bracket where does the system match the two clans in war. coz upon following this guide. in our 2nd to the last war last 4days ago. CLAN A (which is my team) has 331000 overall pts whereas CLAN B (enemy team) has 368000 pts. CLAN B won. on our last war which was 2 days ago CLAN A has 323000 pts whereas CLAN B has 324810 pts. CLAN A won. coz if the system match two clans by nearest hundred thousands. can we conclude that putting one TH1 base on a war would trick the system and pull down the overall pts so that clans will face an easy opponent. thanks!

    • Will Potter

      Hi Avid.
      We just know that the Clan Wars matchmaking system is based on the weight. I haven’t seen anything else. So sorry about this buddy!

    • The Dottie Llama

      From what I understand from CheckMatee77 over at https://m.reddit.com/r/ClashOfClans/comments/2qbw02/war_supercell_war_matching_system/, the algorithm starts by trying to match you as closely as possible but the longer the search goes the sloppier the algorithm gets, making uneven matches more likely. He suggests not letting the search run for more than 3 minutes at a time.

  • AndrejTheClasher

    So if I get it right it means that it’s worse to get witches by upgrading dark barracks than building xbows, right?

    And also it should be ok to build the second air sweeper and even the first levels of the airdef?

    • Will Potter

      Hi Andrej,
      That’s right, but you shouldn’t upgrade both. I don’t recommend building the second Air Sweeper, 1 is enough to deal with other TH8 players!

  • Uther

    I appreciate your hard work and willingness to share this with everyone. But I’m not sure about the results, so I’ll throw out what I know and some ideas. Supersell has stated in the past that TH level doesn’t come in to the weighting equation, but we’ve seen different. A while back one of our TH8s went to 9 early and leapfrogged from 15th in war, to 8th. He didn’t upgrade or add a single other thing. No collectors, troops, or defenses. The TH8s that were above him before that were quite a bit ahead, yet he went way up. It’s obvious that SS has changed their algorithm since they made that statement. Next, if I compare the score of our maxed TH9 with our maxed TH8, according to the storage amounts, they are identical. From reading in the past and getting replies from SS reports, I think the scores you get from the storages (if they are truly that), are relative to their TH level. Also, I think the algorithm SS uses is far far more complex than this simple weighting scale. If it were a simple total vs similar total, we should see our clan of TH5-9 pairing up with say a clan of all TH8s or something like that. But SS appears to be trying to give us a similar number of THs of each level against each other. I’d like reactions to this, because I really want to understand the system better.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Uther,
      Your comment is exactly what I am thinking. Thanks for the great comment buddy!

      • Jeen yiss

        buddy

    • Frank

      I encourage you to use the spreadsheet, you will find it is pretty accurate. I have notice however that the score that you get from the spreadsheet is rounded and not an exact representation of the weight of your base. It is rounded to the nearest thousand apparently.

  • Brewin

    Great guide! One quirk I found when comparing TH8’s in my clan: I actually have a higher weight than one guy when comparing using the spreadsheet. Yet, he consistently (thankfully) is matched higher in the clan wars. The main difference between our bases is that he unlocked PEKKA and he has built the extra defenses (arch towers) and I haven’t. My troops, spells etc are all higher. It seems that going from 0 to 1 in PEKKA and adding even basic levels of defensive towers is a bigger deal than the simple 120pts it adds in this sheet. Storages aren’t in your sheet, but my third storage isn’t maxed yet. Very good guide, but maybe something you can explore in future versions.

    • Will Potter

      I am trying to make this guide more and more better. Thanks for the great comment Brewin!

  • The Dottie Llama

    Couple of questions. First, does the weight for walls count for each wall? Like say for example I have 100 Lvl 1 walls at 14.2, does this count as 1,420 or just 14.2? Second, th weight is not listed where you click on the button (I don’t have access to the xcel file atm) but I do see where you say it’s 1000 in your example to weigh any base in clan war. Did this mean every th Lvl is weighed at 1000? Thank you for your response.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Llama,
      Of course it count for each wall buddy, so that is 1420.
      The method using Storages for counting weight is totally different than the Excel file. So the TH weight in the Excel file is not 1000.

      • Jeen yiss

        buddy.

  • Frank

    One thing I have found, this spreadsheet generates a very accurate number representative of total strength. The number I am getting from my bases is rounded to the nearest thousand. Is this consistent with what you have found? I have also noticed slight variances likely due to the fact that dark spell factories are not included.

    • Will Potter

      Ya I think that’s true buddy!

    Hi,
    First of all I wanted to thank all the staff (especially Ash, Will and Clasher for the amazing guides) for this great work, been reading around for a while now and finally made it to create an account, too!
    Now to my question: As a new th8 since 2 weeks I was wondering about encountering already nearly maxed out enemies in clan wars, even if I know that the total clan weight counts, too. After calculating with your table I found out that my weight’s actually at 41.776 should I prefer upgrades that weight less to slow down its growth?

    • Will Potter

      Hi Johnathan,
      That depends on lots of things, but If you want to focus on Wars, upgrade your troops before your defenses!

  • mzaidzia

    Thank u Will for all this effort…. I was looking for these values since long…. I did calculate my war base weight but there is a bit difference between values by excel sheet and actual war weight…. It turned out 31,343 by calculator but actually it is 39k each, gold and elxr…

    Hi will, thk you for this guide, it’s very cool! I have a question, i’m a maxed th8 that is going for th9 ;to have less weight can in war i want to update ONLY walls with gold and trops/archers queen with elixir and don’t touch defenses. It will be a good way to find low th9 or th8 in war? Thk you!

    • Will Potter

      That’s the point buddy. Just do it!

        buddy….

      @Leonardo :: Your mirror in war depends on whole CLAN weight….

  • MVH

    Is there a table floating around somewhere to show the approximate weight values of early/mid/maxed th8’s and 9’s and around when the crossover from th8 to th9 is for war matchups, so with that info we might be able to play with different combinations of upgrades and maybe even new units as long as it doesn’t exceed x amount of weight?

  • Dodgson

    AD is different from in the excel from the table (230-280 vs 240-280).

  • Littlefoot Longstroke

    So mines, storages, barracks, spell factories and army camps count for nothing?

    • Will Potter

      Hi mate,
      If you upgrade your Barracks, you will unlock the new troop and new troops always cost lots of weight.
      The weight of traps is pretty small, we don’t need to care about that. Storage and Collectors don’t affect your weight.

  • Minhaz Sourav

    The spreadhseet is nice.. But its not 100% correct. X-Bow weighs much much more… Also Infreno…

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much MInhaz,
      I always try to collect the best data for it.

  • Dan Robrecht

    Will, you don’t mention dark elixir in “easy” calculation above. Is it true that the calculation works without factoring the DE? Also, just curious, where do you get your data? Do you have an in with SS or just trial and error trying to calculate by changing things with sample bases?

    • Will Potter

      As I can see, the new DE Spells don’t affect your weight much. I tested this with a few Town Hall 8.5 accounts of my friends.
      The way we calculate the weight of each building is pretty complex, I can’t explain it at here.
      You can trust me and the data above Dan!

  • ipan_boy

    I’ve just finished my upgrade to th9 a couple weeks ago. I had a maxed th8. I am trying to do th 8.5. I added the queen, new walls and traps. I completed my lab and spell factory upgrade as well as upgraded my clan castle. I upgraded all walls to skull. I upgraded all my army camps and upgraded one dark barracks to get the witch. I accidently added the new archer tower and new air defense but just left them at level 1. I went ahead and rearranged my normal village base with my new items. However I noticed that my active war base I was able to leave it as my previous war base when I was th8. It did not force me to add any of the new items. I went thru 1 clan war so far and was matched with a mid level th8. I’m wondering if your clan war weight is only based on your active war base design and not your home village base that has all the new stuff added?

    • Will Potter

      The weight of your base is based on your real defenses and troops, no matter If you use them in Clan Wars or not.
      I recommend you don’t buy any new defense. You can upgrade your current one but focus on your troops first.

      • Luiz Fernando Albano

        i want to make a th 8.5 if i unlock my archer queen i will be th 9? or still 8.5? thanks

        • Will Potter

          Hi Luiz.
          You can get the Queen buddy.
          Please read my guide above clearly!

  • Julio Cezar Gorgueira

    Hi Will Potter, I was testing this spreadsheet and saw a slightly difference between, the amount of gold/elixir + 1000 and the spreadsheet.
    Doing the gold/elixir X 4 + 1000 my village gets 73K
    By the Spreadsheet it gets 71.363.
    What I released is that we donยดt get the Clan Castle at the Spreadsheet.
    Would that be the difference Iยดm experiencing here?
    Would you have the Clan Castle # sou I can have it more accurate, knowing the we can have a TH10 with CC LvL1 that should influence in village weight…

    • Will Potter

      Yep, 2 ways for weighting your base is totally different. Please just use 1 method for comparing bases.

  • Julio Cezar Gorgueira

    Guys I did same math so far and what I found about the DE Spells is this:
    Poison Spell 1 100
    Poison Spell 2 200
    Poison Spell 3 300
    Poison Spell 4 400
    Earthquake Spell 1 100
    Earthquake Spell 2 200
    Earthquake Spell 3 300
    Earthquake Spell 4 400
    Haste Spell 1 100
    Haste Spell 2 200
    Haste Spell 3 300
    Haste Spell 4 400

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much, how did you get these numbers mate?

      • Julio Cezar Gorgueira

        Hi Will, I did same math using your spreadsheet, as I comparing witht the gold/elixir X 4 + 1000 as I said my village got 73K and at the spreadsheet got 71.363. I asked same questions to SC about how the do the weight and they said that is a rounding up or down accordingly to the weight, they didnยดt told any thing about # but they said 499 less goes to 0 500 more goes to 1000. whit all that I asked how much the new DE Spells influence on the weight they just told me that I could consider same as Range Spell ๐Ÿ˜‰ doing the check VOILA that is the #

        • Will Potter

          Those ways for weighing your base are totally different. You can’t use them to compare with each other buddy. Also Supercell won’t answer any question about that :(.

          • Jeen yiss

            buddy……

  • Mike

    Will Potter, this is excellent and exactly what I was looking for to improve my th8 ‘no def’ base. Thank you foot taking the time. (Also ignore all the people who get aa free spreadsheet that is 99% accurate and then complain about the last 1%! That’s annoying. They can make their own spreadsheet!) ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks mate. -Mike

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much Mike. Enjoy!

  • Carson Darnold

    Just wanting to confirm from the calculations that no mater what the level of town hall, it will always contribute 1000 points? So in theory a max TH4 layout but with the TH actually being TH10 (if that is even possible with storage limits), would still have an approximate 12k weight?

  • Colecr

    Hi, I absolutely love your posts, but his is my first comment, so don’t blame me if I get something wrong :). I don’t know where to post this, and this seemed the most relevant place to post. So, I was wondering about defenceless bases. I have a defenceless base, but after the th11 update, it doesn’t seem viable anymore. I keep getting smashed for 100% and not getting a shield cuz ppl don’t use a third of their army. If I build my defences, but don’t update my war base, will that keep my war weight as a defenceless base? So basically is war weight counted on multiplayer base or war base? Thanks

    • Will Potter

      Hi Colecr,
      Regardless of If you update your War Base or not, your weight will still be affected.

  • Tony

    Why small bombs weight so much?! It’s does almost nothing damage but weight as tesla. what the hack..

    • Will Potter

      Yup LOL.
      By the way, Small Bomb is pretty useful at Town Hall 9. 1 bomb can kill Wall Breakers easily.

  • Siege

    OMG why did I not find this earlier! Ok so what is weight on collectors and storages? I know they have some weight even if its small!

    • Carson Darnold

      I would like to know the answer to this also, as well as if there is any weight to the laboratory. On my defensless base I wanted to use as many non-defensive structures to soak up as much damage as possible, but am not sure if it is a good idea to upgrade the Laboratory or even the collectors & Elixir Storage past necessary for heros + town hall.

      • Will Potter

        Hi Carson,
        Upgrading any resource building doesn’t affect your weight. But, If you are a defenseless base, I think you shouldn’t join any Clan War because people can always 3 star you regardless.

        • Carson Darnold

          The reason I’m going defensless is entirely for clan wars ๐Ÿ™‚

          The goal is to have the heros and the clan castle troops do the work for me. If the resource buildings, clan castle level, army camps, and the laboratory really don’t add any weight, then a th9 with 30 cc troop capacity + lvl 30 queen+king would still match a th3(ish)

          Even at my current TH7 the opponents tend to expend an enormous amount of time beating up on my high level storages/pumps/mines.

          If this experiment works out then a few buddies of mine all plan on making about 9 accounts exactly like this, with a 10th defensless account with a “big troop” to donate to us during the wars (most likely balloons). If we make it so that all 10 of our TH9 hero+defensless accounts are matched with TH3’s in a war, then we will most likely never loose a war.

          Lots of work, but fun results ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Will Potter

            Hi mate,
            Upgrading Barracks = Unlocking new troops. This absolutely affects your weight. The point of doing TH x.5 is getting 3 stars from bases which can’t 3 star you. I strongly prefer to do TH8.5 rather than defenseless base.

  • The Last Grimm

    I dont have a king and my equal in wars has been very easy, Kings must surely carry massive war weight?

    • Will Potter

      Hi mate,
      The Barbarian King and Archer Queen don’t affect your war weight that much.

      • The Last Grimm

        Ok thank you very much for reply.

  • George McColgan

    So I’m curious about the spell/troop war weight, specifically, the freeze spell. Is a freeze upgrade really that high? I didn’t think that one freeze upgrade would be equivalent to one inferno upgrade?

    • Will Potter

      It’s the truth mate. But after the update, you don’t need to care about it much because all TH9s have it.

  • Pingback: Max out before going to Town Hall 9? | Clash of Clans Land()

  • Tantal

    Hi is this table accurate? I built defenseless base and I would like to buy hidden teslas and bombs if they don’t raise my weight significant, so I want to know is this really like in this table. Thanks

    • Will Potter

      That doesn’t affect your weight much. Don’t worry buddy!

      • guillotes07

        Hey will, 1 question: how about the AD, tesla and air sweeper weights AFTER the update? i’m going th 8.5, still didnt add any defense (or walls, upgrading current ones to lvl9), only traps and doing elixir upgrades/researchs, what do you think? thanks in advance, great work mate

        • Will Potter

          Hi mate,
          Everything is unchanged after the update so you don’t need to worry about that. Thank you very much! You are doing right!

          • guillotes07

            thx mate! love ur work

          • Will Potter

            You are very welcome. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  • Harelhaim

    I didnt understand.
    If my gold storeges are full my weight will be very high?
    so what you are saying is that the weight in wars measured by how much gold i have?

    • Will Potter

      Your amount of loot in War and your loot in normal base are totally different

  • namikaze

    hey will i just realized something disturbing,. if i am aiming for th8.5 and i upgraded my spell factory the update now unlocks two spells the jump spell AND freeze spell, the freeze spell alone is 1000 points added to the weight, so do you still think th8.5 is still viable?

    • Will Potter

      Hi mate,
      I am sure that is it still working fine. You don’t need to worry about this much since all TH9s have those two Spells so your ranking is still unchanged in Clan Wars.

      • namikaze

        thanks will!

  • MY S3L3CTOR

    Can someone tell me if i were to upgrade my barracks all to level 10 (I am at th8) would this affect my war weight? Being that i have already had one barracks prior on lv10 for the longest now? I just want to get the other barracks up to par to make stronger kill squads faster but i am hesitant because i am unsure if this is affecting my war weight. Technically its not adding new troops. How does the game recognize this?

    • Will Potter

      That’s totally Okay mate because you have unlocked the last troop!

      • MY S3L3CTOR

        Thank you very much for your quick response. Can you tell me, what if i were to upgrade a dark barracks? I have one lv 4 already and one lv 2. I want to even them out and make the lv2 upgraded to lv4.

        • Will Potter

          Sure, no problem at all. You can upgrade it since you have already unlocked the 4th Dark Troop!

  • Am8

    what will be weight for a lvl 1 Eagle Artillery?

    • Will Potter

      Definitely It’s a lot but I think TH11 don’t need to care about weight much xD.

  • steve sanders

    I have a defenseless mini max do walls up to level 4 really have 0 weight. because if so I should build some walls.

  • Enraged Wallbreaker

    Hi Will Potter, i need your advice.
    Im TH9 now(was fully upgraded TH8 before). I bought all new defenses, except XBOWS, but never upgraded them, they are LVL1. But i fully upgraded all other stuff (barracks, camps, storages, collectors…etc), unlocked all troops, my lab is working nonstop(almost halfway through troops/spells). Half of my walls are lvl9(Lego). What and when should be my next step?
    -buy an xbow? upgrade it? or…
    -upgrade newly bought defenses to TH8 lvl? or…
    -upgrade TH8 lvl defenses to TH9 lvl?
    thanks

    • Will Potter

      HI mate,
      I suggest you start working on those level 1 defenses :). After that, you can buy the X-Bows!

      • George

        I am th9 with maxed th8 defenses and the new defenses are getting maxed to 8 as well. My walls are all 10 as well. My plan was to skip the xbows and the infernos all together and jump to th11 for warden and the higher level troops.I know I would get smashed outside of wars for loot but for war would I be matched with lower bases such as th9 or would I be put up against the 10 and 11?

        • Will Potter

          You will be still get matched with TH9 as I can see from my end If you do that. Good luck further mate!
          But, one thing, Farming at TH11 is very very difficult especially when you have just TH9 troops.

          • George

            If needed I’ll gem my barch. I have become patient on farming dead bases and keep my resources pretty high! Thank you. Should be starting to th10 in a couple hours now

          • Will Potter

            Nice. Good luck mate!

          • Moneyrule

            Hey, would u please kind enough to give answers of my question?
            1) what’s your th level now?
            2) have u followed the strategy you’ve mentioned above?
            3) what’s its consecuence in war matchmaking? who r your opponent now, th9 or th 10-11

          • George

            I am th10 until I get more researched. I have all defenses through ten other than any x bows or infernos. All of them are th8 maxed. I did not build any th 10 traps. I am currently below a couple maxed th 9s. We get matched up with all nines and I usually 3 star the top 2 very easily. We are on a 9 win war streak. I have been 3 starred once and usually 1 starred. Goho can still do good damage. If you have any other questions let me know.

  • Vince

    Hi Will, I downloaded the spreadsheet, and one thing jumped out at me. Why is the witch so heavy? She is far and away the heaviest troop. 2100 for lvl 2 witch? That doesn’t seem right. Can you please clarify if this is a mistake or if she really is that heavy? Thanks in advance.

    • Will Potter

      I can confirm this. Unlocking her will affect your weight a lot.
      Lots of players unlock her and immediately get ranked higher in Clan Wars.

  • Me

    If I see it correctly Mortars and Wizard towers put a HUGE weight on your base. In my case (I’m 70% in TH8) they are 17.000 out of 34.000 (for defence only). Would it be wise to not upgrade mortars beyond level 5, before going to TH9? Saving 1,900 points on defence (2 lvl 2 xBows are 1,600 in total)

    Regards

    • Will Potter

      HI mate,
      Yes, you can do that to control the weight of your base. Remember, just don’t buy any new defense and unlock any new troop!

      • Me

        What happens when I would buy 1 xbow? I would just get 400 points extra right? And should I build the archer queen still?

        • Will Potter

          If you get the X-Bow, you will not be TH8.5 anymore. It’s not just about the weight, it’s also about what defense you have. X-Bow is the feature of TH9 and getting it is not good at all.

          Also, just get the Archer Queen dude. I recommend that!

  • David

    great read.. i just stumbled upon this.. my base is TH8. i have 4 mortar @ lvl 6 , 5 cannons @ lvl 10, 3 teslas [email protected] & [email protected], 5 archer towers @ lvl 9, 3 wizard towers [email protected] & [email protected] air defenses 1 @6 [email protected] & Air sweeper @ lvl 3… 2 dark barracks [email protected] the other lvl 1…

    my questions is what would be my best strategy moving forward… its seems like i made the mistake of not finding this valuable
    information earlier but i still would love some feed back

    • Will Potter

      You can upgrade your Air Sweeper at last. Just work on all of your defenses at this time, they are all important!

  • Meatloaf

    I have a second account I am going to rush and only do elixir upgrades and leave at the current defense (th6) how will my war weight be affected as i upgrade troops but don’t
    upgrade any defenses? I can’t find anything on elixir only bases but I’ve heard of them.

    • Will Potter

      If you just work on Elixir upgrades, I think you will just get marched with TH7 in the future. But it’s not worth it at all because TH7 can always rip your base. Better you should work on TH8.5 later!

  • Doodge

    I just opened my clan mate’s war base to calculate his war weight through the storages but his gold storages have 460,000 in each of the 3 gold storages he has. Plus the townhall contains alot of loot now. Adding up all those equals a lot of amount which is quite ridiculous compared to the amount of loot in the storages in your screenshots. What am i supposed to do to calculate his war weight?

    • Will Potter

      Hi Doodge,
      You can use the Storage trick to compare a base with other ones. Basically, a Town Hall 8.5 is just a Town Hall 8.

  • johannes

    I have a question. When making a the8.5 base should upgrading air defense and making new ones be the first priority for defense because small weight but big effect on defense

    • Will Potter

      Hey Johannes,
      I recommend focusing on troops first.
      Also, Don’t buy any new defense If you don’t want to stay at TH8.5.

    If u build more defenses but don’t put them in war base do they still get weighed in war match ups?

    Is there an update to the Excel spreadsheet for Th11?

    • Will Potter

    Hi Will, sorry for this newbie question ๐Ÿ™‚ , i’m max th6 and planning to upgrade to th7. just thinking what will happen if i buy/upgrade my barracks, army camp, lab, spell factory, but not my defenses, walls etc… will i get matched with th6 or th7 in clan wars? tnx alot. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Will Potter

      Hi kit kat,
      Don’t worry mate, just buy all buildings. Clan Wars at Town Hall 7 is very easy. If you don’t buy those new defenses, TH6 players still can 3 star you!

  • hassan mahmud

    hey bro, i am in th8. but my defense is max th7. if i go to th9 and unlock all the troops what would be my base weight.. i have 3 mortars lvl5, 2 wiz twr lvl4. archr and cannon are maxed.. in th9 i will not buy xbow before my king and queen gets lvl 15

    • Will Potter

      I think you should upgrade your defense to maxed at Town Hall 8. Holding them at TH7 makes no sense at all!

  • Adam

    Troops take weight?

    • Will Potter

      Of course. And some of them take a lot!

  • mevron

    Great information! Thank you.
    1. It seems mistake in weigth for inferno 2= 2600, however inferno 1 = 2950
    2. For what reason it contains troops strength? As I know currently Base Weight ignores spells and troops strength.

    • Will Potter

      1. My bad. Thank you very much man! I have just updated it.
      2. Of course they have weight, Some have a lot.
      3. Yea I don’t count walls because it is not needed. You just need to care about your defenses. Just don’t max your walls.
      4. I am working on that, I will add them as soon as possible.

        Inform me about it plz…thank you

        • Polemicist

          Use the storage level information above. It has worked for Farming Wars and war matching now for ages. Please note that severely rushed bases and engineered bases will make it very difficult to get a sync match. In fact almost impossible if you don’t have a large group to sync with.

    • Will Potter

      Just don’t buy new defenses, don’t unlock new troops and you will be fine!

  • Tyson Wood

    Hey Will, the quick “gold storage adding up formula” seems flawed since the town hall holds the same amount of gold as a storage…. for example all my storages and town hall show that they have 13.4k gold…. so my weight would be approx 67,000

    • Will Potter

      Hey dude! Thank you very much! I have just updated that one xD.

  • Adam

    I wish you could get the jump spell but not freeze xD.

    • Will Potter

      They should move the Freeze back to TH10 xD.

  • Adam

    8.5 with max troops but TH8 defenses doesn’t make sense if this weight thing is true. Troop levels increase your weight, so basically you will go against a TH9 about half way maxed. So you will have a higher chance of 3-starring their base and they will have a higher chance of 3-starring yours.

  • imaan

    Good Info here got some ques tho
    Im making a mini max acc i got th5 defenses and th6 walls ALL GOLD WALLS TILL NOW .
    i wanna ask if i only upgrade my offense from this point and no defense till th9 and further with MAX WALLS AND TROOPS AT EACH TH where will u think ill get ranked in war and will it be a successful mini max or not and if im doing something wrong please help me ๐Ÿ™‚
    2. Does buying WALLS AND TROOPS at each th and maxing them WEIGH IN WAR if yes do they weigh high or low?
    Hoping for a good answer ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Will Potter

      Hello imaan,
      I think you will get matched with a Town Hall 7 player. But why would you do that? Any player can 3 star your base with ease.
      They have weight. You should take a look at my guide about at first mate.

  • Hete BLKSM

    Hi, currently on TH9, maxing pretty much everything. Only thing I have yet to max is a few troops, my king+queen (currently at 20/21) and my walls (all lvl 9 except for about 40 walls which are lvl 10). Would you recommend going with 9,5 or is that not a good idea with me being as far as I am? Really wish I hadn’t done that witch to lvl 2, looking at your weight list…
    I initially thought it would be a great idea to go to 9,5 now, but seeing your weight list I fear I will be constantly matched up against TH10, which obviously defeats the point of being TH9,5. Also, if you recommend going 9,5, I assume the best thing would be to keep upping my king/queen and walls? Otherwise I don’t have anything to put my resources into. Thanks in advance!

    • Will Potter

      If you want to go to TH9.5, just get the Lava Hound and upgrade him to level 2 before going to Town Hall 10. Why? Because farming at Town Hall 10 is much harder than TH9!
      After that, you can start working on your Heroes again.

        Already have the lvl2 Lavahound. Only stuff I don’t have maxed out at TH9 with regards to spells and troops is barbs, goblins, lightning spell, earthquake spell, minions and valkyrie. Upping minions to 4 as we speak.

        I’ll look into the farming issue which you mentioned. I know there is a penalty, but I didn’t think it was that bad. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

        • Will Potter

          My Town Hall 10 account rarely can find decent Town Hall 9 bases in silver leagues, that’s all I can say at this time ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Todd

        Hey will just so I correctly understand , I’m a max th8 just got th9 , I’m not buying any new defences . I’m going to get the queen, upgrade my current defences and troops and that will make me an 8.5 ? Can I upgrade my barracks to get lava hounds ? Thanks much appreciated

        • Will Potter

          Yes, that’s correct mate!
          Unlocking Witch and Lava will affect your weight a lot. I strongly recommend doing that after you upgrade all of your defenses and troops.

  • DAK

    The formula that you have provided is incorrect. The correct formula is as follows:
    Base Weight = Gold Value of TH x (Number of Gold Storages +1)

    This formula works best when the last storage is level 5 or higher. The +1000 was part of the equation when the TH had a value of 1000. You can check the value against the summation of the TH Gold value and all Gold Storages or by watching the Replay of the attack. However, when using the Replay Method, you should be aware that there may have been penalties applied due to the attacker being a higher TH level.

    You can use the following formulas to adjust for the penalties when attacked by a higher TH level:
    If attacked by 1 TH level higher: Available Loot of Gold x 1.25
    If attacked by 2 TH levels higher: Available Loot of Gold x 2
    If attacked by 3 TH levels higher: Available Loot of Gold x 4
    If attacked by 4 or more TH levels higher: Available Loot of Gold x 20

    Note: This calculation cannot be performed on Preparation Day, it can only be done on Battle Day or after war from your War Log.

    First of all excel file have the different weight. F.e. for walls.
    Plus, in game it’s show absolutely different numbers now:
    Just finished CW where first numbers were Th9 with a lot difference in base defense and only 400*4 in gold sum. In particular one have 2 x-bow first level, the over 2 x-bows third levels, higher walls. heroes levels and troops. All defenses one level higher and again ONLY 1600 more gold from all storages + th.
    So, I dont think this number now exactly correlating with actual base weight.

    • Will Potter

      Hello Tony,
      I am working on the new weights and gonna release it as soon as possible.
      Thank you very much!

      • Tony

        Thank You,
        I’m usually distribute your effort in our clan’s group in vk.com with link.
        It’s really helps a lot)

  • Nikki Nguyen

    Hi Will. Thanks for the great information.
    I’ve been wondering though: How does the game determine my mirror/suggested enemy and what if someone already destroyed that enemy? Do I get suggested to the closest stronger enemy or the closest weaker enemy. It’s pretty confusing.

  • Hanson Eigilson

    I have been through a few clans now, and either the clan is incompetent in war, or they think that “bases must be maxxed”, i’ve tried to talk about war weights, and importance of offence over defence but they have probably seen too many badly rushed players to really be open to new ideas. What is the best way to get them to consider warweight, and is there any good example clans out there i can point to that makes great use of 8.5 / 9.5 bases ?

    • Will Potter

      All serious war clans really like TH .5 bases. You can easily find them in the forum buddy. Good luck to you further!

      • Hanson Eigilson

        are any of them made up of only .5 bases ?

        • Will Potter

          I have seen a lot of .5 bases there :D.

      We actively promote x.5 in our NZ clans and it helps greatly with the matching, not every time, but many. If you’d like to join, mention x.5 in your request.

  • disqus_aBkCNtsY0a

    Hey, Do you have a plan to update? I am currently working on my 9.5 TH and I was wondering whether I could update my current defenses to higher level since the new update says it will count more heavily on defensive buildings. I am currently matched with a max TH 9 (thanks to the update, I previously was matched with TH 10s even though I did not build any extra defenses). I accidentally built +25 walls and they are all level 8, but I am still matched with TH 9s. But now I am afraid whether upgrading rest of the walls to lv 9 (about 1/3 are lv 9) and current defenses to higher level will match me up with TH 10s… Thanks in advance

    • Will Potter

      Hello dude,
      My TH9.5 clan is still working very well. Always get matched with TH9 Clans :D. So you don’t need to worry about this much!

      • disqus_aBkCNtsY0a

        So are you saying I can upgrade my defenses and walls to higher level?

        • Will Potter

          You can upgrade your defenses mate but I recommend not upgrading walls to higher than level 9!

  • Ryder R. Petersson

    Hey guys, I have another observation which I made in the last 24 hours. I’ve created a PDF file on how you can get free resources. ๐Ÿ™‚ Check this out: http://reliablefiles.com/file/05757n8

  • Beni

    Appreciate the information! Question about walls. When Mevron asked you about walls not calculating in spreadsheet, you replied “yea, I don’t count walls because it’s not needed. You just need to care about your defenses. Just don’t max your walls.” Am I understanding this correctly?
    Walls have no weight or bearing on your town’s ranking in your clan’s war. You state “Just don’t max your walls”, if I want to remain low in war, why wouldn’t I want to max my walls? Thanks ahead of time for clarification on this.

    • Will Potter

      Hello Beni.
      1 wall doesn’t cost a lot weight but a lot of walls will significantly affect your War Weight. At Town Hall 8.5, I recommend upgrading your walls to only level 8 and It’s level 9 walls at Town Hall 9.5.

      • polpan

        Hi Will,
        Meaning for a TH 9.5 to be as low as possible (no any new defense built), dropping the new 25 walls and upgrade it to level 9 (LEGO walls) is not an very high impact to base weight?

        Cause I’m not yet building the new walls, still searching for more info on wall weight.

    This Excel files is still correct after March 2016 update, isn’t it? Thanks.

    • Will Potter

      Hello!
      It’s the latest one. You can use it buddy!

  • Pragat Jhawar

    Hey Will,
    1. Want to confirm this , so with the latest updates (even minor ones) is this guide updated? (calculations,weight per building/troop etc)
    2. As the latest update stated..’Defensive progress will be playing a much bigger role in Clan Wars matchmaking after the update’.& so on.(so like in war weigtage defenses have nearly 60% & offense(troops) have 40% (number’s just an eg.) ) From the info. provided above it’s observed that even troops have nearly equal weightage as the defenses..Very confusion here..
    3.Heroes are considered as Offense Units,right?

    4.Buildings like barracks,lab.,collectors & storages has no impact on war weightage calculations,right?

    • Will Potter

      Hello Paragat,

      1. Yes, this guide is for the latest update!

      2. That’s why I don’t recommend getting new troops and buildings buddy!

      3. Yes, that’s right, but not much. Just upgrade them dude!

      4. Upgrading your Barracks = unlocking new troops = more weight.

      • Pragat Jhawar

        Hey, I have account of a TH3 base with just 1 defense (L1 cannon) ,troop unlocked- barb.,arch. . (L1)
        So on war day the weightage the base shows is – on TH- 334 gold & 334 elixir.
        1 gold storage L5 334,1 L1 gold storage 332
        1 elixir storage L6 334,1 L3 elixir storage 332

        Calculated the weightage as you told above in the post. It doesn’t match.
        Also I have similar accounts,the weightage are different on each base , also different as calculated from above method.

  • Celcius

    Great stuff Will!
    Is Level of the Town Hall effect the weight of the base?
    I have TH 8.5 now and only working on walls. Say if I upgrade the town hall to TH 11 and only build more barracks, will my weight still more or less the same with what I have now?

    • Will Potter

      Hello mate
      Your Town Hall doesn’t affect your weight at all!
      Yes, that’s pretty correct!

  • Tim

    Hi Will, I don’t think that your Xbow weights are correct. They should be significantly heavier, in the 1000+ range right? Right now, a lvl 4 archer tower is heavier than a lvl 1 Xbow. I don’t think that’s correct.

    Great guide and site otherwise!

    Tim

    • Will Potter

      I will take a look at this and reply you as soon as possible man. Thank you very much!

  • Patrick

    Would be great, but the numbers can’t be correct. I used to have a maxed (but walls) TH9 without X-Bows and any other TH9 in my clan was above me in war just because they had a single x-bow.
    Maybe the SC algorithm is more complex…. something that prevents your base to be above whatever weight if you don’t have the x-bow/inferno. I did have the other additional defenses, traps and walls.
