Part 8: Conclusion


Pre-push:

This is probably the most important part of ANY push. For Town Hall Sniping, you will want to focus more on farming gold as opposed to elixir and dark elixir. Take about 2 weeks-1 month to fill up your gold storage and if you want to, elixir and dark elixir. The reason you need to focus on gold the most is because of the long time you'll be pressing the "next" button up at Crystal and above. For Town Hall levels, it really doesn't matter. A fully committed Town Hall 2 can make it at least up to Crystal. Defense doesn't matter as you make your way up, so put your Town Hall on the outside completely exposed to prevent some potential 3-star losses. This guide is for people who play for about 2 hours at a time, so if you play for about 20 minutes a day, this guide is not for you.


Army Comp.

Your army comp. will be different for each Town Hall level. Your CC troops should be Wizards if you have a CC. A general army for each Town Hall is all archers, but that won't well against teslas and traps. Down below I have 2 Army comps. for each Town Hall level except level 1

TH2: 2 Giants, 8 Barbarians, 12 Archers
OR: 17 Barbarians, 13 Archers

TH3: 4 Giants, 20 Barbarians, 30 Archers
OR: 39 Barbarians, 31 Archers

TH4: 4 Giants, 25 Barbarians, 35 Archers
OR: 31 Barbarians, 49 Archers

TH5: 8 Giants, 30 Barbarians, 65 Archers
OR: 52 Barbarians, 83 Archers

TH6: 8 Giants, 35 Barbarians, 75 Archers
OR: 58 Barbarians, 92 Archers

TH7 & TH8: 10 Giants, 50 Barbarians, 100 Archers
OR: 59 Barbarians, 141 Archers

TH9: 12 Giants, 50 Barbarians, 110 Archers
OR: 65 Barbarians, 155 Archers

TH10: 12 Giants, 60 Barbarians, 120 Archers
OR: 71 Barbarians, 169 Archers

The first army comp. for each Town Hall involves Giants as a meat shield, while the second comp. would be Barch with one barracks filled with Barbarians and the rest of the barracks filled with Archers. Spells and Heroes aren't necessary but if you can bring them, use Lightning spells for CC troops if they are triggered and/or splash defense and Heroes for exposed Town Halls.


Attacking:

If you don't have level 3 troops, just stick to completely exposed Town Halls. If you have level 3+ troops and you find a base with a semi-exposed Town Hall or a Town Hall behind one wall, be careful. Drop one Giant at a time as a meat shield, while Archers/Barbarians attack Town Hall. Lightning any splash defense if it can reach your Archers/Barbarians. You may also lightning the CC troops as mentioned before. As long as you deploy one Giant every time the previous one dies, it should be a success. If the opponent's Heroes are in the way, deploy a few Barbarians, followed by Archers and your CC troops. The same works for Barch except use the Barbarians as a meat shield. If someone has lots of traps in front of their exposed/non-exposed Town Hall, use one Barbarian at a time to clear every trap, and for teslas, use Giants and/or Barbarians.


Silver and below:

Down here, you can find farmers pretty easily, and it shouldn't be too hard to make your way up to gold. The wait time for a base is about 2-5 minutes, and you can get past Silver in about an hour.


Gold:

Gold 3 is the easiest part of your push in my opinion. You can find a base in about 1-3 minutes. Gold 2 is a little bit harder, with the wait time moving back up to about 2-5 minutes. As you move up, the wait time is longer, about 3-8 minutes for Gold 1. You can get past Gold in about 2-4 hours.


Crystal:

Congratulations! You made it to Crystal. If you're TH2, you should probably stop here, unless you want to go above and beyond. By now you've probably noticed that all bases you are finding are TH8-TH10, with the occasional TH7. Crystal 3's wait time for a base is usually around 5-10 minutes. For Crystal 2, TH3s and TH4s should stop here, unless again, you want to challenge yourself. The wait time is about 10-20 minutes. Crystal 1 should be the maximum for Town Hall 5 and 6. Wait times here are 15-30 minutes for a base. Crystal is very long and may take 2 days-1 week of Town Hall Sniping.

Master and Champion:

If you're here, you are truly committed to this game. This should be the max for most players, unless you actually want to get to Champions. While I've never actually been up here, I would assume the wait times are very long, maybe 1-2 hours, up to 4 hours. If you haven't experienced a gold shortage in Crystal, you should have one now. Wars are a great way of replenishing gold/elixir/dark elixir. If you want to get to Champion, Town Hall Snipe is NOT the way to go. However, you can get to Champion by Town Hall Snipe. This will take about 1-2 MONTHS of NON-STOP playing. If you've gotten to Champion by Town Hall Sniping, you are truly a Champion at Clash of Clans.

Conclusion:

Town Hall Sniping is an easy way to gain quick trophies. I recommend Town Hall Sniping if you need some quick Trophies. Hope you liked this guide! :)

    In the end, you said it would take months to th snipe to champions.... well guess what, you're wrong. i'm a th7 in champions; it only took me 2 weeks, from gold 3 - champions. I sat up all day long (12 hours a day) searching for a snipe. In fact, i'm searching as i type this. Two weeks for a th7 to snipe to champs :D update your post please, to not misslead anybody.

    Also, i noticed how you wrote that you would end up lacking gold due to searching in champions. Again, you're wrong. I was full on the gold all the time. The loot bonus from crystal and above is high enough to pay for the searches. An example: When i search for a snipe in champions, i usually use 80k-160k gold. The loot bonus is champions give you 180k gold and elixir. So i technically profit 20k gold for every snipe.

    that isn't entirely true, I think that your wait times are overestimated and they are not that long (I myself am a town hall 9 in crystal 1) and I think that a few of your wait times should be significantly reduced, sometimes I find a base in 2 minutes, other time 15 minutes.

    Good guide in general but remember to farm when you get higher because then you only lose around 7 trophies or so.

    Dmacaroni30 you are right lol. There is a clan called TH SNIPERS with a TH3 champion. There was a TH7/TH8 troop combo but it was cut off for some reason. It was 49 Barbarians and 151 Archers for both.

    Getting to champion by only town hall sniping is impossible unless you want to spend half your life pressing the next button. Town hall snipes are good for a trophy boost when you happen to come across one but i wouldn't rely on them after gold 3. Use some regular attacks they're more fun and aren't a waste of time. Also its stupid that you made a troop composition for th2 but not th7 or th8. No one has th2.

    I'm using 12 Giants, 20 Barbs, 1 healer, 8 wiz, 8 wb and 63 arch. King and Queen. 2 jump and 2 rage. Pushing to Master, works fine when you know when to deploy your troops. LOL

    I sniped from silver 2 to masters 3 it took me 11 days to get there it doesnt take very long to find a snipe in masters but sometimes it does longest i remember waiting was 40 minutes and yes war is really your only option of replenishing your gold! Happy Clashing guys!

    When I was pushing for masters league as a th7 ( which i didnt go master but my record was 2454 trophies) my army was 20 archers 30 minions and 24 balloons, this army was made specifically that if 4 lvl8 teslas popped out next to an outside town hall, it could be taken out with 20 minions and 20 archers and there would be no need of balloons

    A good trophy-pushing clan also is TH7 ELITE, they are in Master and Champion and are all TH7s. Btw pretty good guide but I think all the times are exaggerated and it would take much less time.

    As quoted on some other guide "I blew 100k looking for a TH snipe for the few trophies I needed to get to Crystal 1." (This may not be quoted correctly but you get my point) After Crystal there is no TH snipes as everyone in these levels are going for trophies and arent farming if they were farming in that area they wouldve been gone down to Crystal again pretty quickly.

    Bro if you are at such low town hall levels you should either buy a shield or stay online 24/7 as you will be crushed by revenge attacks
