Inside and Outside the GoWiPe

Some of us in the higher trophy counts may know the common GoWiPe, but sometimes it may not work how we want it to. That's why I made this guide on the variations of the GoWiPe attack strategy. First off, what is the gowipe? Gowipe consists of 3 main troops. Golems for the obvious reason of taking the damage, wizards for the reason of dealing damage, and finally pekkas are used to be sub-tanks.

Normal GoWiPe:
2 X Golems
3 or 4 X Pekkas
15-20 X Wizards
3-5 archers

This attack strategy will give you a star at least on almost any base. One problem I have been running into with this attack is that many people have dragons in their clan castle. No archers = very hard time taking out the dragon. That is why I created the second GoWiPe variation.

2 X Golems
2 or 3 X Pekkas
10-15 Wizards
The rest archers

I have found a lot of sucess in this raiding strategy to some point, but lacking of 1 pekka and 5 - 10 wizards took its toll on the amount of stars I was getting. I figured that the only way to fix this problem was to go to town hall 9 and 10 to get more army camp spots, but because of the loot penalties I decided to stay at town hall 8. I'm glad I did because I found another raiding tactic recently after my decision to stay at town hall 8. Here it is

2 X Golems
3 pekkas
15 wizards
5 archers and clan castle archers

Tip: If your clan doesn't donate archers, switch clans or if you are leader, tell your clan to donate archers. Archers are the best troop to have in your clan castle.

Now back to the strategy. This was working about 99% of the time. This was the one strategy that I still use today. One more thing to talk about. Spells. I have a level 3 spell factory, so I am able to create 3 spells, so I make 2 rage and 1 lightning. I guess I could drop the lightning from the line up, but I think it is important. Taking out archers from the clan castle is a big part of raiding.
Hope you guys enjoyed this guide! Comment any other guides you would like me to make and I will try to make them. Thanks :)

First thing to do: Take out the clan castle and the heroes.

This is accomplished one of many ways. Depending on what the troops in the clan castle are, you may need to do more work. I would deploy any troop that can go in range of the clan castle and heroes and get their attention. Once you have done that, try to find a place on the map that isn't covered with defenses. Some people drop a rage and their heroes, but I prefer to drop some wizards, or if the clan castle troops are archers, than a lightning spell should do just fine. Then the defender should have no more heroes and clan castle troops.

Next thing to do: Pick a spot where you want to launch your attack.

This is a matter of what you think. Some people attack the most heavily defense covered side, and some do the opposite. I would attack the most defense heavy side, so when your troops make it through that side, there are no distracting defenses waiting to take out your troops.

Next: ATTACK!

The first thing to do is to drop the golems and drop a few wall breakers. Anything that gets the golem into the bulk of the base works. Next, drop some archers or wizards near the place the golem is in, so that later, your pekkas aren't distracted by outside buildings. Once the outside buildings are gone near the spot, drop a few more wall breakers to break through the next layer, and drop your pekkas. Here, I would drop a rage spell. In back of the pekkas and golems, drop the rest of your archers and the rest of your wizards, your king and your queen (If you have them) and drop the final wall breakers. Sometimes with wall breakers, they go to the wrong place. That is why it is impo rtant you drop them as close to the hole the golems and pekkas are in as you can. You should have a rage spell left, and once the wall breakers break into the middle, BAM! Drop the rage and watch as you have an epic win!

Thanks! I hope this helped :)

    For a Town Hall 8, I use:
    2 Golems
    3 PEKKAS
    14 Wizards
    4 Wallbreakers
    1 Archer
    1 Lightning
    2 Rage

    It will 3-star a weak Town Hall 9 or anything weaker, just make sure the PEKKAS don't go outside ;)

    I have one question, you mention to drop the wallbreakers, yet you didn't put them in the list of troops, or anywhere until the last step.... Just curious, thanks

    Good guide. One suggestion though. I would use a jump spell. I use 1 jump 2 rage and 1 lightning. the thing is, if the golems go far enough, so can the other troops and they do more damage fast. Great guide tho. oh and btw Guitar, try to find inactives so you can be assured theres no CC troops. Shoots!

    Thanks for all the feedback! SaveTheHipsters, I agree that dropping all of the wall breakers at once is a bad idea.

    I'm in Master League 3 and I've 3-starred four bases consecutively, using this attack strategy! However, I use 1x lightning instead, and use that to take out Clan Castle troops and the Archer Queen, if there are any Clan Castle troops left I use my heroes to mop up and also take on the enemy Archer Queen.

    Also, only drop 2x Wallbreakers at a time, that way you won't get unlucky and lose them all to a mortar or another defence!

    PS: A witch in your clan castle is good as well, drop it in the corner of the map after your Golems and PEKKA are deployed to take out any buildings on the outside of the base that may hamper your ability to 100% the base.. Time is the enemy!

    Happy hunting and if anyone needs a clan, Monthly Looters is here! We are farming at the moment, but we recently pushed and reached top 300. Level 75 required, max archer required.

    Thanks!

    This is not even the "Inside or Outside of GOWIPE"
    It's just talking about the variations and what spells you use.
    I was expecting something like how to deploy troops, using heroes and CC troops to draw the Pekka directly into the base, and where to attack best.
    And Wizards are much better for CC troops, they aren't taken out by one lightning Spell, they do splash, and together they add up to a much higher damage per second. Course', they cost more and take longer to make, but that's beside the point.

    This is not a guide, this is a list of your opinions.
