This is a guide to trophy hunting for town hall 8 players. I will be explaining how to get trophies, and base tips that you can use to help win as many battles as possible.

Base tips-------------
here are some tips for designing a base:

- put builders huts in the corner. this has helped me not get three starred. there have been many times that somebody has gotten 97-98 percent of my base destroyed, when if my builders hut were in with the other buildings, they would have gotten 100 percent and three stars.
- protect your town hall. for somebody to get 2 or 3 stars against you, the have to destroy your town hall. this will usually be the main target of trophy hunters.
- upgrade your air defenses. if you are planning to get 2000+ trophies, air defenses are very important because lots of people at high trophy levels use dragons.
- upgrade your cannons and archer towers. this will be important because giants, golems, and pekkas are commonly used above 2000 trophies.
- upgrade your walls. walls are very helpful because they can easily stop a horde of giants or barbarians.
-use traps. traps are SO helpful. I am in town hall 8 with lvl 5-6 walls, and lvl 8-9 cannons. I won a defense against 17 lvl 6 giants, plus lvl 6 archers mainly because of my spring traps and clan castle troops.

attacking strategies---
0-1600 trophies:

below 1600 trophies, a town hall 8 person with lvl 5 troops should be able to easily get 50 percent and/or the town hall, with giants, archers, and maybe a healer to help.

1600-2200

this trophy range has a lot of town hall 9-10 farmers. just destroy easy town halls with archers and barbarians. I usually have 3 barracks that keep making archers, and one making barbarians. I place a few barbarians at a time to distract the mortars while the archers take care of the town hall. remember that a lvl 5 mortar can kill a lvl 5 archer in one shot. I usually keep a dragon or a pekka, and my barbarian king (lvl 3) just in case I almost have the town hall destroyed, but my other troops are dead.

2200-3000

there are a lot of strategies for this range. here are a few:
- gowipe (golems, wizards, pekkas.)
- wipe (wizards, pekkas)
- golems/witches
- wigo (wizards, golems)
- lightning spells to destroy some of the air defences, then dragons.
look on the supercell forum for more information. I have not used these high level strategies much, so I am not the expert on them.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
I hope you like my guide.
I have gotten to the third crystal league in town hall seven by destroying easy town halls, and my town hall 8 record is 2221 trophies. I am currently at 2179. My clan is team zoom, and we are looking for players in the gold league or higher who will donate. Thank for reading this.

    ''Upgrade your walls'' ''My walls are level 5-6''... basically, upgrade everything. I have not tried any strategies, so I can't help you with that either, look that up somewhere else.

    good but if you are trophy hunting why the heck would you use goblins and archers to destroy someones base, wouldn't you just want to use like drags, pekkas, or giants instead!!!

    i got to master with th8 mostly by using dragons and lightning spells on air defense.
    Also by keeping my TH outside.

    I dont agree with putting builder huts in corners, it gives the enemy a free 10 percent with 3 barbs. and also, if you attack th like crazy, people are gonna get revenge on you plenty. Plus you forgot what is in my opinion is the best raid strat for this lvl, 15 hog riders and 15 minions, witha rage spell and 2 heal spells.

    this is the worst guide ever, im an almost totally maxed out th 8 (everything except mines and pumps) currently getting a th 9, in the 2200-3000 section how are th 8 people suppose to get witches? and you didn't put the best strategy which is balloonions (balloons and minions) and from 1600-2000 you shouldn't protect your town hall so that th 6-8 noobs will attack you for easy trophies than once they have more trophies than you revenge them for up to 50 trophies

    Dont put builder huts in the corners, unless youre in 1400 below trophies. only noobs (no offense) would miss them. My record for trophies (Town hall 8) is 2317, and my defenses aren't maxed. Level 7 walls, level 9 cannons/arch towers, lv 5 wiz tow, lv 6 mortar, lv 4 tesla. When i have max TH 8 i can probaly go to cyrstal I, and who knows maybe the MASTERS

    Do not, whatever you do, put your builders hut in the corner. That is idiotic in the extreme. That means that the opponent can get up to 10 percent on your base with a few barbs. That makes it far, far easier to get 50 percent. Basically, if your opponent has managed to destroy the rest of your base, 99% of the time they will have the time to destroy your builders huts.

    And also, you can use a Farming Base as it saves you a lot of trophies when you go up high(e.g. Master League)

    I totally disagree having your Builder's Huts in the corner. It allows the opponent to get more percentage points if they drop a barbarian or an archer to destroy it. If your opponent uses the Barbarian/Archer rush. People usually attack the Builder's Hut first. So they can easily get 50% on the base. I have experienced this before as I went to Master League before as a Town Hall Lvl 8. Another point I will add is to have your Clan Castle in the center. An unlurable Clan Castle allows your opponent to stress destroying your clan castle troops while destroying your buildings. And as you go to the Master League, you will notice people have very few trophies, and you will have to protect your Gold Storage a bit. This is my feedback.

    To make this guide shorter:
    Use a hybrid/defense base
    Upgrade all your defenses...

    Not bad, but I disagree with a few of your tips. First of all, don't put buildings in corners, sure it may help protect against a 3 star, but its a very easy few percent towards a 1 or 2 star, which happens for frequently. Secondly, on both of my pushes (just finished one a few hours ago) I kept my TH outside to limit losses and hopefully get a shield. It worked well and got sniped a lot, especially in crystal.

    I like the way you presented the information. I don't consider myself to be a noob player, but I was still able to learn something from this guide. I found it funny how you said for the 1600-2000 to use 3 barracks training archers and 1 training barbarians because I'm at 1700 ish and I do the exact same thing. Overall, AWESOME job creating this guide. Please make more :)
