How to get to Master League at Town Hall 8!

  • May 31, 2014 (42 months ago)
Welcome to my guide! This is my first ever guide pertaining to my personal experience on how I got to Master League as a Town Hall 8 :) Enjoy!


First of all there are many ways to succeed in Clash of Clans. This is by no means the "only way" to get to Master League as a Town Hall 8, this is just how I got there.


Table of Contents:
- 1. Preperation.
- 2. Base Layout.
- 3. Bases to look for.
- 4. Essentials.
- 5. Execution.


- 1. Preperation.

Most clans send out clan mail before a push starts giving a few weeks, maybe even a month or two, for members to prepare for the upcoming push.

What you want to prepare before a push is:

- Resources. People say in pushes it is important to keep your storages close to empty so you aren't much of a target, however, this is not the case at all. Upgrade your storages to max and fill them up before a push. You will need gold to press the next button to find the perfect base to attack, and you will need elixir and dark elixir to train your trophy pushing armies.

- Troops and Army Compositions. Gather information and experiment with armies that will get you 2 or 3 stars. You need to get as many trophies as you can by using good armies to eliminate losses and accelerate gain (war helps a lot in this since you are striving for constant 2-3 stars). First you must start upgrading those troops and the spells that work well with them ASAP! Learn how to use the strategy well, losses up high can be frustrating setbacks. Once you have done all that you should be ready to start your push! :)


- 2. Base Layout.

Base layouts really don't matter very much past Crystal 3 if you are a Town Hall 8. If you have a lot of loot or a high amount of trophies to offer, a strong Town Hall 9 or 10 will attack you. This is why me, and many other Town Hall 8 pushers keep their Town Halls outside during pushes. The benefits of this is you will get Town Hall sniped and only lose 4-11 trophies, compared to a maximum of 34 for a 3 star if your Town Hall was inside (On revenge amounts differ). Lots of Town Hall 8s and below Town Hall snipe in Crystal to gain trophies fast. If this is the case, you can revenge for twice, maybe more, then what they stole from you. But this doesn't always work. Some people might want your loot, or your trophies but most likely you will get Town Hall sniped the majority of the time.


- 3. Bases to look for.

In order to gain trophies and go as high as you can go in trophies, you need to know what bases you can defeat, what their strengths and weaknesses are, and what you need to do to maximise your success rate. First, never be afraid to press the next button if you are unsure of a win. If you don't think you can beat it then don't try to! Up in Crystal 1 it starts getting to strictly Town Hall 10 territory with occasional Town Hall 9s so choose your bases to attack wisely. If you see a Town Hall 8 up there, it is free trophies, but those are very few and far between. Ideally look for bases with empty inferno towers or none at all, inferno towers pose the biggest threat to most troops when you don't have a freeze spell. If you find a Town Hall 9 most of the time you can attack it (depending on what army) so know what your army can take down and what it can't.

- 4. Essentials.

The most key thing for pushing is to have patience! I would sometimes spend 20 minutes looking for a perfect base to attack (this was when I was nearing Master League) because I didn't want to lose. I was one raid away from hitting Master, I got so excited I went for a base I wouldn't normally go for and lost. It set me back 2 raids worth of trophies and made my confidence on hitting Master that day, go down. It is vital that you stay calm every raid you go into and choose your bases wisely. Don't beat yourself up if you lose, we all have seen the defeat screen multiple times in our Clash of Clans careers. Another thing some people do when they trophy push is attack without a full clan castle or without waiting for their Barbarian King to finish healing. This is a very bad idea as those two assets may help you squeeze out a victory that wasn't achievable with your troops alone.

- 5. Execution.

I got to Master League by using Hog Riders so I will be talking about how to use them. They are currently level 3 and upgrading to level 4 and I don't suggest using them for pushing until you get them to atleast level 3, other strategies you can use are mass Dragons, Barch, even a Town Hall 8 version of GoWiPe although I have little experience with those armies so any advice I gave on that might not be correct. The setup is use in my Hog Rider army is: 24 Hog Riders, 12 Archers, 12 Barbarians, 12 Wizards, 4 Wall breakers and 3 Heal Spells. When attacking a base, always lure the heroes and clan castle troops out first! If you do not lure and kill the heroes and clan castle troops, your raid will not go well. Drop a few Barbarians to draw out the clan castle and heroes to a corner of the base that no defences can shoot you from. Drop your Barbarians first as distractions, then drop your Archers and a few Wizards if you need to. Once you have done that, drop your Hog Riders on the side of the base with the most splash damage. If you don't, you have more splash damage to take your hogs out, and maybe no more heal spells to save them. Heal spells are the game changer in Hog raids! If your heal spell placement is bad your hogs won't get very far. Drop the heal spells in front of the hogs, and where they are going to go. If you drop it where they are, they will run outside it sooner then they should. If it looks like your Hogs will not finish off the defences, drop your Barbarian King to distract those defences and drop the Wall breakers so the Barbarian King can take them out. Then spread your Wizards out around the sides of the base opposite the Hogs or Barbarian King. This is a very good strategy to use when pushing and works very well.

I hope this will help some of you, this is the way I got to Master League as a Town Hall 8. Although this is mostly for Town Hall 8s, Town Hall 7s and maybe even 9s can use what I have written here. I might make more guides in the future, for now I am glad I gave it a go. Huge thank you to my clan family APOTHEOSIS and APOTHEOSIS 2 in particular. Good luck everyone and happy Clashing! :)

    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.

     

    Here's the base layout i used

    i got to masters as a th8. i used full 200 archs till crystal 1. then used hogs and gowipe. 

    PRO TIP: 

                 if your using archs for 50 %, then for

    th7: find at least 25 buildings outside walls.

    th8: at least 29

    th9 : at least 35, no joke. try and find archer queen not near the outside.

     

    THIS TRICK HELPED ME TO PUSH TO MASTER !!!!

    And then Champs at TH8 wasn't so hard since I had been to M1 before. An extra level on the Drags, Loons, and Minions definitely helped. I'm not big on hogging, but still great guide!

    I would like to say that base layout could indeed matter when your are in Crystal III . I used a troll bases with a hole in the middle with my th next to it to go from crystal three to crsytal one with only attacking 28 times. I used Clash With Cam's th8 Troll base. I recomend it to everyone!

    @Nicscore The hog strategy can take down Town Hall 9s but only if they have one hero. If they have two, you either don't attack,Mir use a golem to distract the archer queen, while your hogs run through the base (since the barb king is slow and doesn't have ranged attacks like the archer queen, you can leave him).

    @good007 You can but you need to comment on this guide, saying your in game name, level, league rank,and the lvl of your: Archers, Wizards, Hogs and Dragons. Make sure you tell me these things, if you just request to join, you might not be accepted.

    @zzzfrendzzz They still do work, the only downside is you cannot attack bases with two heroes, otherwise, your hogs are done for. This recent update made hogs a lot harder to use, and also very ineffective for players like me, that are one of the top players/attackers in my clans Clan Wars. I can no longer attack tough Town Hall 9s in Clan Wars if they have two heroes (of course depending on position of heroes, if they are on the outside, I can kill them easily and 3 star the base) because they will destroy my hogs. Now I am a new Town Hall 9, I will be using the Balloonion strategy for pushing and sometimes farming, and hogs or Balloonion for Clan Wars. In conclusion, hogs do still work, it just requires a lot more planning and skill. I will continue to use them for Clan Wars, I haven't had a lot of struggle with hogs post update, you just need to change how you attack with hogs and plan your attack a lot more. Thanks for your comment. :)

    @willion Thanks! I would suggest for defense upgrades, do mortars, wizard towers, then air defense. For troops, I would say upgrade the troops you use most first, then the troops you will use, and finally, the troops you don't use (To burn elixir and it's always fun to max all your lab upgrades ;)). Thanks for your comments. :)

    @Prince Zuhair rocks This guide can be followed for any Town Hall that is pushing. The only thing that wouldn't work for Town Hall 7s and below is the attack strategy, this hog strategy is only suggested if your hogs are lvl 3 . As a Town Hall 6, I would say your best option is to Town Hall snipe your way up. This guide can help you with the main things you need to know about pushing for any Town Hall lvl. Thanks for your comment. :)

    @-AKF07- The most important things when it comes to pushing is to be patient and stay calm at all times. Once you get up to about Crystal 1 it will take a lot of patience as that is mostly Town Hall 10 territory.

    @JoeMamaSoFat I really don't suggest using this army composition with lvl 1 hogs. They cannot do much at all up higher in trophies, I suggest getting those hogs to lvl 3 ASAP if you want to use this army composition.

    @cj4729 Awesome! Good luck with Town Hall 7 and your push! Thanks heaps, it means a lot. :)

    @Obam4 That is a good base but honestly, in Master League base designs dont matter at all. You will get 3 stared almost every time, a Town Hall 8 or below in Master League is basically free trophies. I like to put my Town Hall outside and most of the time, I just get Town Hall sniped. Occasionally I will get the Town Hall 7 that snipes me and I can revenge for a lot more trophies then they stole! Thanks for your comment. :)

    @Ethanparty11 I don't suggest using this hog strategy until you have lvl 3 hogs, they can't do much at a lower lvl then that. If you have lvl 5 balloons, then yes, balloonion can take you to Master easily. I suggest maxing your camps ASAP, it will help you a lot with your push. Good luck with your push to Master and thanks for your comment! :)

    Great guide, but when i pushed i started raiding with hogs once i passed 2500, bfor that u can just snipe town halls, it will save DE so u can reach master much easier.

    @mehranJ Thanks! :)

    @YetiConfetti By gaining trophies, you can get achievements for gems and EXP, beat your personal best and see how far you can go. Raising trophies can give you great loot bonuses as well. If you are a lower Town Hall up high in trophies, the higher Town Halls will attack you and you won't lose many resources. You can also gain more because you are attacking mostly Town Hall 10s up in Master.

    Your base design is very good (good ol Pingfao's Tesla Theme Park ;)) but honestly, as a Town Hall 8, defense is useless up in Master or even trying to push there. Too many high levels will 3 star you if you have your Town Hall inside. Just leave your Town Hall outside, you will get a lot of people Town Hall sniping you and you can revenge them for more trophies later. Thanks for your comment. :)

    I also joined the APOSTHEOSIS 5 clan and was wondering if you could also review my base, like to see if that is good enough to make master? My ign: KaptainDog(I am th8)

    andyAtCA Yes, defense is useless as a Town Hall 8 up in Master, in my guide I said that defense does not matter. Thanks for your comment. :)

    I don't think your base made much of a difference- when I made it to masters, there was nothing that could be done on defense. You just had to be active and attack often.

    @nimbus this is one of the times I actually will agree with you. Stinsen is a fucking noob that lies. He is currently a th7...that base that he showed, he hasn't even tested. No wonder the Air Defense and Clan Castle are mixed up. And he still thinks golems target defenses first.

    Your strategy is pretty good but really you stay at master league but then you would need loot and most likely you would just end up farming down again. But to get there it's actually good strategy. I like hogs too but mine are lvl 2 and you must have been TH 8 a long time for hogs lvl 4. But nice guide and also I read your comment and being leader of Fool's Gold clan, I now have 24 members and it's much tougher with wars. With 10 members we all attack and we were 4-0. Good and I'm starting my trophy push soon.

    @rjblake33: I know know perfectly what you mean, but I put the defense buildings away from the walls, and replaced it with cc, DE storage and bk to distract giants and hogs from the middle. So, instead of breaking in, inside the centre, they just go around the base. :D

    @HybridTurtle Yes, there are only 10 people in main clan because it is the war clan. They keep numbers small so it is easier to manage for wars. Only people that have been in other APOTHEOSIS clans can get in, of course they need to be good at war. :P

    @rjblake33 Good point, you can use the Wallbreakers aswell. I prefer Barbarians for lures as they don't die as soon as other troops. But for situations that Heroes and Clan Castle troops are further in, Wallbreakers are perfect.

    Thanks for your comments. :)

    @Stinsen or anyone using Stinsen's base I would recommend switching the top most air defense with the clan castle below it. This would spread apart the Air Defense more to have more time to shoot down air units so they cant take them out as quick. It would also centralize the Clan Castle more to make it harder to lure out.

    @amathe821 My base design that I used during the push was a sort of anti hog base. If you search the clan "APOTHEOSIS" and look at the player Sparhawk's base, you will find the almost exact version of the design I had. I copied Sparhawk's base so he has the most original version. Thanks for your comment. :)

    That's the base I used to hit master league, it looks ugly like shit but it worked! People couldn't predict the traps, and the empty space distracted the troops from the middle.



    And also, the giant bombs are great to kill all hogs at once.

    What I can say about the right base:
    Yes, you're right there's always someone with TH10 and maxed out troops that 3-star your base and you have zero chance againist him.

    *BUT...

    Believe me or not, there are bases which can really help; I used a selfmade base, it looked like shit and nearly everyone 50% the base, BUT only two out of 30 players have done an 2 star attack! And they were people that even FAILED their attack!

    All I can say is DO NOT PUT YOUR TH OUTSIDE, try different setups, upgrade your traps...

    Try something like this: (1) Spread the single target defenses (2) Put the storages in th 2nd wall layer or just make a lot of empty space (3) centralize the mortars, the air defense and the wiz towers

    Done? This type of base layout will distract/lead giants (or hogs or golems) around the base, far away from your TH, and they'll be (hopefully) killed by your traps. This is the best technique to protect your TH from high level troops.

    My journey to Masters League was very very very very long, but worth it, and I gained much experience.
    I think the most important thing of all, is being active and the qualitiy of the attacks.


    I used Hogs too, they're pretty much the best army for TH8.
    I stayed in crystal 3 to farm DE and to upgrade them to lvl 4 and then moved to crystal 2.

    @ds123-123dur Thank you and yes, I did hit Master League, I have dropped down to farm now. :)

    @soulscour I had 20k DE when I started my push. When I got to Crystal 3 I started using hogs and around Crystal 1 I started to run out. I got a few lucky dead bases and got back to about 10k DE which was just enough to get me to Master League. It got rough at the end though as I completely ran out of DE and Elixir thus ending my push at 2610.

    Thanks for your comments. :)

    I started my push about a week ago at 1600 trophies, with max elixir and 15000 DE, I got to about 2200 trophies with barch and some townhall snipes. After that I started using 24hogs, 20archers, 20barb, 10 wizzards. 3 heal spells, wizz in my cc every raid, and barb king rdy everytime. I got to 2400 easy, after that I had some failures to get to 2505 (my highest) then I just ran out of DE, and couldnt continue raiding with hogs. Between 2200-2400 I was actualy making DE with hogs, was at 22 000 at a time, but I intentionaly looked for bases with 2000 DE to raid (And ones that I was certain I could atleast 1 star). But like I said, after 2400 -2500 I just couldnt cope, what has your DE spending been thus far?

    um this is a good guide but in a push i only keep my Elixer close to full and i have a trophy base not farming.listen when you push you switch to a trophy base. then if you push to say Crystal 1 then i switch to a farming base and get down to work with the wizard and barbarian strat.The reason for pushing is to get to a high league then switch to a farming base to contain loot cuz at higher lvl loot is harder to get but, u get more of it around 400,000 depending on who you attacking. just saying you hould take my comment into consideration : )
