Trophy Pushing Tips for Town Hall 8 & 9

Trophy pushing tips for Town Hall 8/9

  • When you find a new match, your first 3 targets usually have 30+ trophies, try to attack them if you can. After 3 times tapping the Next button, you can return to your home and find new matches again.
  • The more times you click next button, the weaker targets you can find.
    – Return to your village and search for a new one If you want to get more trophies.
    – Keep hitting next button if you want to farm.
  • If you use troops for sniping Town Halls, simply drop 3-4 Barbarians/Archers, close the game and then open it again. After closing the game, those troops will keep hitting the Town Hall.Β You don’t need to waste your time watching them
    Don’t use this method If you snipe Town Hall with your Heroes or they will get baked by the enemy defenses after finishing the Town Hall.
  • From Crystal leagues, there are a lot of players trapping Town Hall, always drop 1-2 Barbarian at first for testing traps.
  • You should bring couples of Giants for dealing with trapped Town Hall.
  • For Town Hall 8, always fill your Barracks with Dragons If you don’t have much time to play. You can always find weak Town Hall 8 bases with 20-25 easy trophies.
  • Drop the whole army If you can get either 3 stars for more than 20 trophies or 1 stars and more more than 1000 Dark Elixir.
  • Always leave your Town Hall outside for instant free shield. Don’t try to protect it otherwise your whole base will be ripped, especially at Master and above.
  • Always fill your Clan Castle and make sure it can cover your Town Hall.
  • Don’t break your shield If you can’t win at least 2-3 raids before logging off. If you don’t want to use your Gems anymore, always boosting your Barracks whenever you have more than 2 hours for playing game!
  • Always try to revenge. You can sometimes find sweet base with TH outside in the defense log list.
  • 2 hours raiding sessions everyday are enough for you to maintain your current trophy at Champion.
  • You can use troll base layout for pushing from Crystal to Master in just 2 days, this one for example.
  • Trapping your Town Hall a bit is a good idea for weakening the enemy army and making the attacker unable to go further. Trapping TH is not always using Hidden Teslas, you can place your TH in the defenses’ radius (Archer Towers, Mortars, X-Bows,…).

By following these tips, pushing to Champion League within 2 weeks is not hard. Once you are at Champion League, you can follow the Loot Bonus Farming Strategy to get unlimited loot!

  • BaKiR

    But what if i dont have not enough Elixier for Dragons and Spells ?

    • Will Potter

      If you don’t have enough Elixir for Dragons, you can buy all Archers and find a base to drag and get 50%. Always bring Lightning Spells with you!

      • BaKiR

        i want to go to Champion with this but i am Gold 2 , how should i attack becauso at Gold 2 Mass Dragon is a bit to expensiv or ?
        (thanks for the fast answer)

        • Will Potter

          If you are currently at Gold 2, you can snipe Town Hall to Crystal 1-2 then use Mass Dragons or Mass Archers as I said :D.

          • BaKiR

            ok i will do it thanks πŸ™‚

          • BaKiR

            Another Question , i have a farming base should i do it to a “free loot” base , i mean should i not protect my loot or can i let it like it is ?

            Sry i am german i cant write english well πŸ˜€

          • Will Potter

            You can do that in Gold and Crystal 3-2, but don’t do that once you hit Crystal 1!

          • BaKiR

            why not in Crystal 1 ?
            and is this base good for not protecting Loot ? (selfmade)

          • BaKiR

            Hey Will
            i am Crystal 2
            and i dont find th outside !
            i dont have enough elixier for Mass Dragons !

            What can i do ? i am currently doing Archers and a little bit minions .

          • Will Potter

            Wow you are pushing so good mate!
            You can use Xmodgames for searching TH outside easier. Otherwise, just use Archers as I said, It is quite easy :D.
            You are doing really nice!

          • BaKiR

            i have xmodgames already πŸ˜€
            but i become nly 4 Thropies per raid and i think that is pretty lame

          • Will Potter

            Ya that’s right because of the new match making system. If you can’t find any bases to attack at first 10 searches, return to your village then try again.

          • BaKiR

            ok i will try it πŸ™‚

          • BaKiR

            Can you recomend me a th8 base ?

          • Will Potter
          • BaKiR

            i became Master 3 Last Night πŸ˜€
            How should i attack ? only bogis is hard to use i only find th9 max out bases and more like that πŸ™

          • Will Potter

            Haha you are really fast man.
            Can you use Golem + Archers combo?

          • BaKiR

            i never used it ..
            i use 8 Dragons + 10 Minions (CC = Maxed Loons)
            and with that i make only with luck 50% i am not good at it πŸ™

          • Will Potter

            You can read it here: http://cocland.com/strategies/farming-in-champion-with-goarch-strategy
            I went to Champion before with this combo. Now I am at Silver for farming LOL

          • BaKiR

            Thanks i will try it but do you know another strategy?

          • Will Potter

            Till now they are the best, you can use Ballooion when you at Town Hall 9!

          • BaKiR

            i am not good at it =( Do you know if there exist of this guide in German ? xD i am German and i just didnt understand the video good πŸ˜€

            πŸ™ ok i will try it more πŸ˜‰

          • Will Potter

            Balloonion is not that hard. You can find plenty of videos about it on Youtube πŸ˜€

  • abhinav

    Will, i need to reach champion but xmodgames doesn’t seem to work.. plz Help me out!!

  • Alireza

    Hi I reached master 3 with archer with out xmod game in 3 days from silver
    my question is I should attack with whitch troop for reach champ?
    i m th 9(i become th 9 last week)

    i afraid to use xmod .if my account lost…..

    • Will Potter

      I reached Champion before with just Archers and Golem + Archer. You can train Dragons before sleeping for the next day raid.

      By the way, You will not be banned by using Xmod.

  • Fulioso skys

    I am at master 2 right now and, damn i thought crystal 1 was hard but this *-*
    im getting crazy

    • Will Potter

      The game is now hard after the new matchmaking system. Keep calm and you can do it!

      • [TIX]

        I haven’t really noticed the difference between the new and the old one,could u tell me what the big deal is?

        • Will Potter

          After the update on April 30, You usually find bases which have the same Town Hall level as you.

          Before the update, a Town Hall 3 could even find a Town Hall 10 lol.

          • [TIX]

            Oh jeez tnx

          • [TIX]

            Oh so far I have noticed that now that u mention it but I also noticed I been finding maxed Th10 bases which is pretty cool cos some of them leave their storages outside,so their basically like open season,lol,the other nice thing is that my th9 base account is really rushed so I find other dead rushed bases which is epic cos their inferno towers and Xbows don’t work and those r their primary defenses .the other thing is that the new update on the matchfinder is more supportive of ppl with rushed bases….the only problem is my first account lol.

    • [TIX]

      R u still going for 3 stars and 2 stars or r u just attacking the easy townhalls ?

      • Will Potter

        He is at Champion League now lol

        • [TIX]

          Lol OK

      • Fulioso skys

        u.u

        • [TIX]

          Whaaaaaaaaat?

          • Fulioso skys

            Huh

  • Michael Ranullo

    i reached the titan league but now when my townhall turns to level 9 i spend a lot of gold finding free townhalls. so i dropped my trophies to 3.5K but still it takes a lot of golds to find free townhalls.

    • Will Potter

      Yep, it’s time to try win by destroying 50% of the base buddy!

      • Michael Ranullo

        so you are saying that farming league bonus is not effective now?

        • Will Potter

          It is still working nice. Just though you didn’t use it for farming lol

          • Michael Ranullo

            do u have some tips how can i make 1star on those th10? i just turned to th9 and my troops are not that strong yet.

          • Will Potter

            Do you have Earthquake Spell?
            You can snipe all buildings outside to get 50% win. You should read this guide: http://cocland.com/guides/ultimate-guide-to-farming-at-master-league

          • Michael Ranullo

            thnx a lot mate!

  • jj

    I push very well with a farming set up and use of GOWIPE

    • Will Potter

      With GoWiPe we can always have at least 1 star for sure, but it requires such a long time for training. I think you should use something faster!

  • rizal

    Now i at the Master 2. I always using GoWiPe. But, why I always find the 1-4 trophy in Multiplayer battles?? πŸ™

    • Will Potter

      ya that’s the hard way to higher league. IMO you should try to use GiBarch or other strategies which require less time for training troops.
      Take a look at here buddy: http://cocland.com/guides/how-to-get-to-titan-league-fast-and-easy

      • Candra Wijaya

        hai potter i give up to crystal πŸ™ i dont know in gold 1 after i log off a few second/minutes my base always attacked πŸ™
        can you give me solution if after i attack and have 20 trophy (2stars), i always attacked 2-3 stars from th 9 player. and i just th 8 players and early th 8.

        sorry if my english is bad im from indonesia

        • Will Potter

          Hi Candra.
          Buy full Archers and just use them + your Barbarian King for snipping Town Hall. You can get a lot of trophies before logging off.
          Going to Crystal III is not hard at all!

          • Candra Wijaya

            should i dont log off after i attack just once?
            because i always attacked after i log off.
            just archers? dont buy dragons at all?

          • adit

            jangan log off bro, makanya pake archer yang trainnya cepet
            cari aja yg TH luar

  • Charlie Zothana

    great guide. i reached champions league on 6th september at around 00:45 am. As an almost full TH8, i found sniping townhall easier than using Gowipe Goho etc. i used two barracks to create archers, two barracks for giants ( to tank those hidden tesla, archer tower etc) and 2 dark barracks with valkyries. spell full earthquake spell, to break those few annoying walls (sometimes i carry 1 heal or rage).
    Master 3 was the hardest for me, as i tried using gowipe for 3-4 nights (I almost gave up). i google and found this guide. i switched to sniping and the rest was easy. i reached master on wehnesday night, and master 1 on friday afternoon, right after i came home from work. i grab a quick dinner and continued pressing the next button for the next 5 hours. bam champions league at around 12:45 or 00:45 am saturday morning.

    • Will Potter

      You have done a great work buddy. Congrats and welcome to Champion!
      Not much TH8 players have enough patience for pushing to Champ. And thank you very much for the great tips!

      • Charlie Zothana

        thanks. i am using your farming guide and its awesome

  • Wei2Zone

    nice guide πŸ™‚ another suggestion for th snipers , you can bring 12 giants just in case you’ll encounter TH surrounded by tesla. so they can tank it then spam your arch πŸ™‚

    • Will Potter

      Nice share buddy. I forgot about this. Gonna update it into the post above!

  • Sanat Pratik

    Hey you guys can do following step too to get a even faster townhall sniping without clicking next next each time.. Most recommended for townhall 7 or below.
    I got to Masters from Gold in one and Half days though I wasted about 200 gems on barracks boost and Spell Boost. If you want to use gems just boost spell factory and one barracks if you have level 4 or higher troops troops for two stars or three.However if you have lower level troops don’t waste your gems.

    Now here it goes.

    You will need Xmodgames for this.You can follow it from here
    http://cocland.com/tricks-and-tips/xmodgames-best-tool-for-clash-of-clans

    Now once you install it,run the game from it.And open the xmod settings. And go to Max townhall from edge and enter value 5-6 from it. Note:- 1 to 20 are the number of tiles distance from edge of map.
    http://imagizer.imageshack.us/a/img661/3411/CKG5BB.jpg

    Less value means number of tiles distance of townhall from edge.Keep it upto 5-6 for easy townhall search.

    Now you should also enable Real Time Tesla,Trap in the settings.It works as a charm as you could see all the traps and teslas and bombs placed near Townhall.

    Note:- After you enable Real time Tesla And Trap you must restart the game else it won’t show you any traps.

    Now at last Enable Match All conditions And Search Switch and Keep Active

    Use Barchers along with few wall breakers and giants both in CC and as a troops.

    Use heal or rage spells in case your giants and barbs if u think things not working fine at attack

    Now go on and attack. No Need to click each and every time next.You could easily do any other works along with sniping πŸ™‚

  • Pete

    Hi Will,

    I dont understand with “close the game and then open it again”
    could u please explain it more detail ?

    Thanks bro !!

    • Annie Chang

      Means exit your game using home button, then touch your game to come back to the game again.

      • Pete

        ahh… got it !! thanks ya

    • Will Potter

      It’s just like this buddy:
      1. You’ve just found a sweet base with TH outside.
      2. Drop 2-3 Archers next to the Town Hall.
      3. Close the game.
      4. Open it and you can see you’ve gotten those trophies.

      • Sanat Pratik

        IF I QUIT the game won’t i be attacked by someone else??

        • Will Potter

          You can’t be attacked because you reopen the game immediately, right?

          • Sanat Pratik

            ooh I see..One more thing I am trophy pushing now and today while some1 raided me I lost 40 trophies at once :-/ I never lost so much trophies.Do u have any idea why I lost so much??

          • Joshua Rovic Salvador

            Theres two things why you lose that much trophies. It is either a revenge attack or the one that attacks you has a lower league than you. If the attacker has a higher league than you, you’ll probably lose below 10 trophies or even just 1 trophs.

          • Sanat Pratik

            No buddy he was th9 and much more higher than me.
            http://s30.postimg.org/v1ngx2969/SNIPE2.jpg
            http://s30.postimg.org/9174gfqi9/SNIPED.jpg

            I have just reached to masters while trophy pushing.Is it common to loose so much trophy or it just happens sometime? It’s hard to trophy push when u loose more than u earn πŸ˜›

          • Will Potter

            Wow that’s pretty weird. I just see this one when a lower TH player attacks a higher one. Maybe because of his troops were all tier 1,except Hogs?

          • Sanat Pratik

            Hey since I am lower level should I place my townhall outside walls with trap and tesla incase a lower level snipe me for 1 star?? Though it doesn’t makes much diff if it is inside walls πŸ˜›

          • Will Potter

            You can place it in the radius of your Archer Towers and Mortars, I think that’s the best idea!

          • Sanat Pratik

            yups that’s even better thx

          • Will Potter

            Maybe he came from lower league and had the same or lower TH level.

          • Sanat Pratik

            Yeah my bad.Was sniping from last few hours for 1 stars nd lost 40 trophy at once.That really hurts lol.

          • Wouter

            Mostly 35+ trophies are from revenge

          • N’Check Uchiha

            your wrong man… in my journey to champion.. simetime i can get a 56 cup for 3 stars in a single attack and that is not revenge. more higher trophy your enemy,, more higher trophy u will get.

          • wouter okkerse

            In the new system you quicklyer find A same lvl th so quicker out of Trophy range you are in

          • Will Potter

            and also the Town Hall. If you can 3 stars a Town Hall 10, the raided trophy point is insane lol.

    • Manas

      It doesn’t mean to surrender. It means to close the “game” not the battle so that coc can automatically do the battle in a short period of time… Less than watching th being destroyed slowly….

      • Will Potter

        One of the most important tips for pushing trophies xD

  • Taquitos

    Better way – find a good Troll Trophy pushing Layout. By doing this you can logout, login and get ranging from 30-60 additional trophies, once you get shield can wait to complete you troops, then after attacking logout again, wait for someone to attack you and tada instant trophy. Proven and tested, I’m able to get to Master 1 League in just 2 days

    Note: it’s a TROLL BASE, its for Newbies to believe that there are not defenses around your TOWN HALL πŸ™‚

    • Will Potter

      I used troll base and went to Master III from Crystal II in just about 3-4 hours! Awesome!

      • Raw Mess

        any troll bases for th8 here ?

        • Will Potter

          Hi Raw Mess,
          I haven’t seen any nice troll base for TH8. I will let you know once I’ve found something.

          • Yatharth Joshi

            Chief, please find one good TH8 base and say me brother.

      • Taquitos

        hahaha got to champion league in 4 days – at last!

        • Will Potter

          That the hell!! You are amazing!

  • Danny

    Folks, I’m at TH9 (9.5) and I use XMODGAMES to find THs outside walls. No need to press the NEXT button! went from Gold 3 to Champions 3 in 3-4 days!

    • Madhawa Madushanka

      Does it need a rooted phone?
      And some ppl said me the whole things xmod doing is fake. Isn’t it?

      • Danny

        XMODGAMES is a real app that will run within coc and give you extra functionality. Yes it’s real! and yes you need a ‘rooted’ phone (for Android) and/or Jailbroken iPhone/iPad (since this app is not an ‘offical’ IOS or PLAYSTORE app..that’s why you need to jailbroken/root device).

        It’s worth it trust me! I’ve reached champions 5-6 months ago (and it took me 2-3 months back then). One of the cool features of the app that when you are searching for a village to attack, you can tell the app to skip a village if the TH is not near enough to the edge of the town (which can help you gain trophies)….instead of you keeping on pressing the NEXT button until you find the right village….it does many other cool things (fake attacks so that you can test your troops, keep you device active so that your session won’t disconnect, etc). it’s worth it (if you are comfortable with rooting/jailbreaking your device):

        • Madhawa Madushanka

          Thanks very much. So I ll give a try ???

  • SD_Scott

    I’m at TH9 and currently pushing for Champions… Having mild success with this army: 24 giants, 60 arch, 4 wiz, 8 bomb, 4 min. I try not to use Heroes and spells if possible but usually go into battle with 1 jump, 3 heal, 2 haste and 1 poison. Goal is to snipe as much as possible and attack for 2 stars anything worth 15 cups and above. Keeping that goal in mind, viable attacks are far and few between in Masters 2 (currently where I’m at). I tried using Themis troll base but I kept getting destroyed and losing too many cups for me to make up so I went back to farming layout. I put my Teslas around my TH and have successfully been able to keep my lost cups count down this way.

    I have a lot of success using LavaLoon attack strategy but I find that it takes too long to brew and costs too much. I usually brew this army composition before I go to bed and attack in the morning with it.

    I know I’ll eventually get there but it’s going to take some time. Probably a week or more at this rate… Tips? Anything I’m missing?

    • Will Potter

      The army composition you are using is pretty nice. I am using that too lol, I usually use my Heroes at the end of the attack for a few more % and they will be always ready for the next raid because the army also takes a decent time for training troops.
      Truly I see that Themis works best from Crystal to Master III, and above Titan, where you always get ripped. I don’t have any more tips for you lol. Keep doing the great job buddy!

    • Danny

      Scott,

      look at my post above. I’m also a TH9 and have pushed for Champions 3 (I’m there now). Use just 4-6 wall breakers and then half barbs and half archers. Just takes 15 minutes to produce this army and it’s worth it! Anything else just takes too much time and $$$. I’ve been using Hypercube X (TH9 Edition) and nobody has been able to penetrate my core!!! Here it is:

      http://cocland.com/base-designs/hypercube-x-th10-farming-base

      Take care!!

      • SD_Scott

        Update: Tried the Hypercube base layout. Got rocked for 400k gold and elix, plus 2500 dark elx. Not to mention the 40 cups I lost… Will not be doing that again.

        I’ve made it to Masters 1. New strategy consists of: 24 giants, 4 wiz, 60 arch, 2 witches, both Heroes, 4 earthquake and up to 2 heal spells. It’s expensive but the loot and bonus loot is more than enough to make up for it. With the use of the above army, I’m getting 20-30 cups every attack now. Should be hitting Champions within a day or so.

        Now if I could just find a way to deal with those damn inferno towers… lol.

        • Will Potter

          IMO all bases can be ripped from Master lol.
          Good luck buddy! See you tomorrow in Champion!

    Im new to this game and i found this strategy are very useful. I use my lvl 4 archer to take down every “lonely” town hall outside the base that i can find and i finally made it to Champion III (the process are really pain in the ass since i have to spam a lot of Next button but it is all worth it). But now I faces a lot of trouble to find those THs. So are those XMOD things really good?

    • Danny

      yes JOKEN! XMOD presses the NEXT button for you until you find a TH to snipe (a TH outside the walls). Worth it!!!

  • Danny

    Again I TH snipe in Champions. I’m at a TH9 (9.5 with 150 wall 9s). Use 4-6 Wall breakers…then rest half barbarians and half archers. I can pretty much get 50% on most TH9s that I encounter. If I find a TH8 (in any league) I can get past 50% and even get to the center of the base for additional resource. I think that farming in Champions is best due to all of of bonus $$$ that you can earn after each snipe/attack. I end up filling up my storage containers after just 1-2 days worth of sniping! I end up upgrading 5 to 10 level 9 walls every 2 days (besides upgrading defenses and full time upgrades for my heroes!)

    • Will Potter

      Nice share. Thank you very much Danny!

      • Danny

        Anytime Will!! Love this site!! You need to post more articles!!!

        • Will Potter

          Thank you Danny! I always do my best :D.

          • Tim Podgajski

            yea you re just the best

  • Will J.

    I’m planning to push to Champions. I’m a th 7 with a lvl 3 king. I use 20 giants, 4 wall breakers, 23 wizards, 2 heal spells and 1 rage spell. I have only been pushing for a day and i’m already at 1500+ trophies(coming from 900+). I mainly used this strategy before for farming but i realized that is is excellent for pushing also.

    • Will Potter

      And It’s also pretty effective from Crystal league, but I think it;s not hard at all to find TH outside at Gold leagues buddy!

  • Fernando Ares Kosasih

    Can you give me tips more on pushing from master to champions? i have 2 accounts that have been in champions before the new matchmaking system, and now the third time i pushong it, it seem like impossible, becuz of the new matchmaking. I fell stupid keep pressing for something like 2, or 3 trophies,, thanks and sorry for my bad english πŸ™‚

    • Will Potter

      What is your Town Hall level now buddy?

      • Tim Podgajski

        will poter can u make video tutorial how to change gmail becouse i dont ndersteand the last one

        • Will Potter

          Can you comment in that page and tell me which one you don’t understand buddy?

          • Fernando Ares Kosasih

            th8, before the update, i made it into champions using my 1st acc at th8 also, so :/

  • N’Check Uchiha

    very usefull tips my friend, especially for returning home instead of nexting. i manage to get 100 trophy a day.. now im on 2900 at TH7. army composition are 20 wizard and 20 hog. fast enough to blow up the TH with 2 wizards. hog for eliminate the tesla.
    im a TH sniper.

    • Will Potter

      You are doing a great job buddy. Hope you can hit Champion soon!

      • N’Check Uchiha

        thanks man… i’ve already a champion now.. and i realize something…
        when i reach 3250+… i cant snipe TH anymore.. you’re right.. to farming with loot bonus at this league.. i have to lower my trophy to 3150 and then reach champion again.. really easy farming.. especially for DE.. my best was 3M gold elix and 30K DE for an hour. for regular farming,, mostly get 6-8 TH outside (1-1.5M n 10K DE).

        I think the Key is we must know when the other players kicked out coz 6 hour long session play and in my country, the sessionn ends between 12.00 – 15.00 pm. in other time, sometime i have to spend an hour just for snipe 1 TH outside, even with nexting or return home.

        • Will Potter

          Your best record is really amazing, that’s even better than boosting Barracks lol. Congrats buddy! And thanks for the great share!

  • Raw Mess

    will can u please post thophy pushing base for th8 somewhat protecting the storages too ?

    • Will Potter

      You can use all farming bases here buddy.

      • Raw Mess

        but i heard farming/trophy pushing/war bases are different ?

        • Will Potter

          The main purpose of trophy pushing base is protecting your Town Hall, but you are at Town Hall 8 and you can’t protect your TH agasint other TH9 and 10 players buddy.
          To save your loot, better place it outside.

          • N’Check Uchiha

            buddy… i just do something with my base layout.
            i think.. if you want to psh a trophy to champion, better to put your TH inside, but you must make a full defense for your Town Hall. make your defense full of trap. i just did it a couple hour ago.. i currently at TH7, i remove my shield. get attacked, remove shield. get attacked 5 time a row, and i just loose 20 cup, bcoz the attacker (mostly TH9 and Th10 with barcher) cant destroy my TH (only 1 stars).
            if i put my TH outside,, sometime they did a 2 stars (50%) – 3 stars.
            BUT… if the attacker use gowipe against TH7 like me, i can confirm that a 3 stars for sure.

          • Will Potter

            Hi mate,
            Don’t know why but I think you should just place your Town Hall outside. A lot of players just snipe your TH then leave. 1 Star and your loot will be safe.

  • anand kumar

    I am TH9. In fact th9.can i get my base for trophy pushing or should max my base .

  • Enrico Cuison

    Wow this is very helpful!! One more tip to all thos who are trophy pushing: be patient on searching for bases you can actually win. 1star gives 6-10 trophies but defeats deducts 20 trophies above. Losing hurts. Its like u wasted time lol. Great tips here!!

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for visiting my blog mate, and thanks for sharing your tip!

  • Mr.Frank

    I’ve found that the number of bases with exposed THs diminish as you move up the leagues. I’m trying to break into Crystal league using giants+archers+lightning spells…but even after exposing my own TH, many higher level players like TH7 and TH8 raid my base for loot.

    I think it’s not worth it to push to Crystal at TH6…but then again I’m already at 1714, so it might just be possible if I keep nexting and sniping.

    • Will Potter

      We have one Town Hall 2 player in Titan Leagues buddy. And I hope you will be the second one lol.

      • Mr.Frank

        Haha, but for that to happen…I’d need to downgrade to TH2 first πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

      • Mr.Frank

        Finally… broke into the Crystal League

        • Will Potter

          Nice congrats buddy!
          Hope you can break into Master League soon!

  • Markalfred Balagso

    Its good but my account banned for 2days because of offensive layout please i promise give me back my coc i not do that mistakes again my tropies will down faster

  • E to the B

    I’ve been staying pretty steady at around 2680 cups after getting to masters. Have made some decent loot by keeping the th outside and raiding 4-5 times a day. If I see a th outside, I snipe it. Occasionally you will see quite a few, and that is easy loot. Would like to get to Champion, but happy with slow and steady and the loot bonus.

  • E to the B

    What is the fastest troop combo that will get you at least 2 stars when boosting for 2 hrs? I feel that is going to be the best way for me to get into Masters 2 and 1.

  • Pratap

    I am finding really difficult to push my trophies to champion league. It took me more than 1 week to go to master lll and I couldn’t go future than that. Help me out

  • THUNDER

    M pushing to champions soon.. Ill try post some tips from my side as well.. Yesterday I was in silver 3.. Now in gold 1 almost

    • Will Potter

      Glad to hear you are doing the journey. Really want to see your tips about this buddy!

      • THUNDER

        Thank u .

  • Aljohn Mangaya

    I got
    from Silver 1 to Crystal 3 in just 7 hours of play by th sniping only. I made
    the same during the day. However, things get harder if you play at night
    where many players are online. Now I’m stucked at crystal 3 with 2127
    trophies. TH outside defenses and walls are very rare. There is an instance
    where I push the next button for more than an hour and I still can’t find a
    snipeable th. It’s damn hard. I use barchers only.

  • Avilove Nilay

    I am new to TH8 and I’m into Champions 2 however I am unable to get past through Champions 2. I am getting very less snipes as soon as I reached champions 2. Please help me with any base or suggestions

    • Will Potter

      Hi Avilove,
      If you want loot, go down to Champion III and follow this tip: http://cocland.com/tricks-and-tips/loot-bonus-farming-strategy

      • Mario Dododo

        how do i get the 1star with the new update? the guide says snipe th’s but there shouldnt be any to snipe right..?

        • Will Potter

          Yep, right. This guide is obsolete right now. Currently I don’t think you can easily push as a Town Hall 8. If you are TH9, you can use Barch or GiBarch!

          • Oupal

            but if i only want to go to master league is it still possible for th8?

          • Will Potter

            Yes, but it is still pretty hard. I can’t see many TH8 players at Master League :(.

          • Oupal

            done this today, giant healer from silver to crystal, use mass hog from crystal 3 to master, but i don’t plan to continue because all th8 base I can find here offer very small trophy(3-10) while th9 from crystal 2 rekt my base for 35+ trophy and I’m currently busy in life to sustain trophy. but this place is recommended for farm resource because all th8 here is f*cking rich compared to gold or silver.

          • Will Potter

            Very nice. Thank you very much for sharing this dude! Good luck further!

  • kalaimani

    Dude. I m in crystal 3 now… i want to become master as soon as possible. But i cant… can you suggest me wat are the best troops to get 3 stars.. or atleast 2 stars.. im moderate Th8

  • Josh Eggenton

    Fed up off th10s taking 25 cups when im a th9, not fair at all

    • Will Potter

      Ya I know that feeling but I’m pretty sure that sometimes you can take ~50 trophies from a Town Hall 8 base at Master I. I really can’t understand the trophy system lol.

  • Raw Mess

    3900plus trophies since 3 days as a th8 , only th10s f0und , mostly maxed , hardly earning 1-3 trophies from sniping . its too damn hard for th8 !!!

  • Htoo Pyae Lin

    Hi,buddy ! let me introduce my village. . πŸ™‚
    I rushed my village to TH9 and my defences are still TH 6 defs but maximum limit of TH9 are built . i got 2 x-bows , AQ 1, BK 5, Bbr lvl 5 ,archer lvl 6 , and TH6 walls. . the point i want to know that how long can it take me to reach the Champion league. I spend my time on CoC only about 3hrs per day.is it enough? but i want to make it out within a month . can it be possible ? the application,forecaster don’t describe my region(south east asia).what is the suitable time to earn my trophies easily?i don’t want to be stucked around at Master league like most others! would u give me some advices pls ? I hope u would reply soon πŸ™‚

    • Will Potter

      Hi Htoo,
      There is no specific region in that tool because all players on the world are playing in just one server. Also, the new update will be out soon and there will be no Town Hall outside so I think it’s pretty hard to push to Champion as a rushed base :(.

    • sudhakar

      Hi Potter, now with the new can I push into the champions league or at least masters. My base is a maxed th7, and thanks in advance.

      • Will Potter

        Nothing is impossible but It will be very hard. You should focus on only Mass Dragon attack buddy!

  • Ultimitβ˜†Cuest

    hey, i used to trophy hunt, i used giant healer to get from silver 1 to gold 2. i would attack bases that are poorly desinged orare upgrading an air defence. somehow i got shot down 150 trophies. (lol hello bam!) because, this time, I dont want to next as much, im thinking of tryijng a giant wizard strategy, but now having second thoughts. for the trophies (its different to join the clan of someone in gold rather than in silver) or for personal growth? please give some advice

  • krunal

    Hey, Potter give me tips for getting 50% on TH 9. I’m currently on TH8 with this army Barb, Arch, Wiz, Wall breaker, Giant, Ballons with Level 5, and Hogs Minions Level 3 and BK is Lvl 10, so I’m a trophy pusher i want some tips and army comp for 50% on TH 9. I am at Master League II and want to go fast for Champion.

    • Will Potter

      Definitely this strategy is very easy to get 50%: http://cocland.com/guides/farming-dark-elixir-in-master-with-barch
      Please take a look mate!

      • krunal

        Potter thanks for that but my troops are level 5 and i want to push to champion league currently i’m on master II give me troops advise with boosting barracks so i can get 2000 gems. Want only 50% attack strategy pls suggest me.

        • Will Potter

          As a new Town Hall 8, I recommend you using GiBarch or GoWiPe for a sure win. Not many good TH8 strategies can take 50% against a TH9 buddy!

  • d_a_n_i_s_h_5_5

    Since there isn’t even a single detailed article about TH8 trophy push , after the TH11 update, I’ll tell all of you how to reach there(I reached from Silver league to Masters league i.e.2600 trophies , in just 6 days).

    Although for a normal person it would take more than just 5 days. But if you are a COC fanatic like me and don’t have a life,then you might get more out of the strategy that i’m about to tell you.

    Firstly , You need to MAX OUT your STORAGES, especially your ELIXIR & DARK ELIXIR, coz you’ll be really needing that throughout CRYSTAL.

    I think reaching Crystal III shouldn’t be tough for any TH8.

    So I’ll only focus on crystal league.

    I was a mid level TH8 when i reached masters so you don’t really have to be a high level TH8 to reach there.

    I had lvl 5 baloon, lvl 3 dragons, lvl 2 hogs, lvl 5 wiz, lvl 3 healing spell, lvl 5 lightning spell, lvl 1 Earthquake, lvl 3 rage.( I had not unlocked Golem and PEKKA so GOWIPE was out of the picture for me)

    That’s all the troops i used for attacks

    I had 3 troops strategies for each crystal league:-

    STRATEGY I (CRYSTAL III): Always look for TH8 bases which have low level air defense and, if possible, look for bases which have air defenses on upgrade(do not attack any TH9 unless it has 3 or all air defenses on upgrade ,which is quite rare).Take out 1 air defense with spells and deploy balloons with rage from the side of the remaining air defense. Be patient on pressing next Button coz you’ll be pressing that a lot in crystal.

    I remember once it took me 25 minutes of pressing next to find the right base. Always remember that patience is a virtue.

    1. Dragons = 6

    2. Balloons = 16

    3 Spells = 2 Lightning , 1 Earthquake , 1 rage

    4 Clan Castle troops = depends on your clan what they give to you, but it would really help if they are generous enough in giving you dragons or baloons. Even if you don’t have cc troops , just make sure to have poison in your cc spell always.

    STRATEGY II (CRYSTAL II) :Once again , attack only TH8 or TH7 . Attack only if you are sure that you can get atleast 50 % . coz a loss can really hurt you in higher leagues (1 Loss can set you back by 4-5 attacks).

    1. Hog Riders = 30

    2. Wizard = 10

    3. Archers = 10

    4. Spells = 3 Healing, 1 poison

    STRATEGY III (CRYSTAL I):I went all out with this clan war strategy in Crystal I because bases in crystal I are really Really hard.Patience is needed in pressing Next. Always look for bases with high amount of trophies(10-20). I never looked at the amount of loot while i was searching for bases to attack.Only focus on if you can beat this base or not??? and if you can beat it , is it having enough trophies on offer??

    .

    1. Dragons = 10

    2. Spells = 2 Lightning , 1 Earthquake , 1 rage

    Also you always need to have a king while attacking coz A lot of time my king was still healing and i went for attack without him which turned out to be a big mistake and lost the attack & learned the hard way, importance of the Barbarian King.

    Base Layout: To be Honest, it really doesn’t matter what layout you use in crystal, coz you’ll get 3 starred every time on defence by th9 or th10 players.

    Anyways, this is what i used till I reached CRYSTAL III

    • Will Potter

      Cool. Thank you very much for sharing this buddy. I hope you can write a detailed guide in the future about this. I want to post it on cocland :D.

    • Will Potter

      For sure buddy! I will release it soon!

  • d_a_n_i_s_h_5_5

    With townhall sniping gone , th8 can only push till masters.
    I have maxed TH8 now and have been trophy pushing for past 2 weeks, i have reached a max of 2900 trophies and stayed around that mark. It seems like i cant get any more trophies now however hard i try.I cant find decent bases to attack coz i only come across th9, 10, 11. Th7 and th8 are nowhere to be found in masters .

    Looks like reaching champions league without townhall sniping is next to impossible.

    • Love Behl

      plz help me i want to reach masters below is my base give me tips

      • d_a_n_i_s_h_5_5

        Like I said no base design is gonna. Help you because th8 is goΓ±na get wrecked every time by higher level players. So you better focus on attacking only

        • Love Behl

          u are true see proof but give some tips on attack that we follow

          • d_a_n_i_s_h_5_5

            no need to use that revenge button.
            Follow all the steps of attacks i have written in my comment.
            Though i would say your base is still an early th8, You need to wait until you upgrade those troops and spells i told ya before you go for that trophy push

          • Love Behl

            bro see this troll base is it works see

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much for sharing this man!

  • Love Behl

    will potter i want to push to masters give me tips

    • Will Potter

      You can use either GiBarch or GoWiPe to push at this time. Using Mass Dragon is also another good choice!

      • Love Behl

        should i need to fill my storages to use gibarch and explain gibarch full composition i dont find on internet

  • Meh Inc.

    I have an account TH 7 All max defenses (including those new spring trap levels) with 128 lvl 7 walls and rest level 6. Been several days and stuck at Crystal II. TH 8s and 9s get 20 trophies and I can only find 15-20 trophy offers on TH 8s and 9s. Occasional 7 trophy TH 7 but not sure if I should switch to barch or BAG for those TH 7s instead of trying for rare TH 7 and 8s with 24+ trophies.

    • Will Potter

      I am sorry but we have nothing to do with this πŸ™

  • Sidharth Sunil

    Hi I want to push to champion and I am now at Crystal 2, I am th8 which troops should I use… Low elixir now
    Will please reply fast

    • Will Potter

      You can try to use GiBarch and aim at 1 star win buddy!

    • Kha Led

      Use Govawi

  • Josh

    Hey I’ve been in master league for couple days and I can’t seem to find bases with good throphies. Th 8 bases are only worth 6-15 throphies, and when someone attacks me they get 25+ trophies all the time. And I would like to get it to champions

    • Will Potter

      Then you will want to attack a few times each season buddy. I am so sorry but we need to deal with this!

    • Kha Led

      Im in Champ 1 too…its very hard to get big trophies

  • Resham Bipat

    I am now a th8 at 3831 trophy’s and want to reach titans league. I use govawipe to push but only find th10 and th11. None of them with good trophy offers or that I can beat for 1/2 star. Anyone with tips?
