Hello Wired Fuzzy,
Thanks for the advice! I'm upgrading to th5 now, so I'll be using your th5 base soon!
Also, do you have a separate war base for th5 as well as a defense base or are they the same?
I see I missed a message from you before this one... sorry about that! I don't physically check this site very often anymore, and although I get an email notification when I get a message on here, I have over 30 email accounts, and sometimes things get lost in the shuffle!
I wish I had better news for you, but the truth is, at this low level, you have so little to work with, you are always going to be vulnerable to someone with enough strong troops of any type. I have played around quite a bit with this layout, and have found that anything I gain against stronger attackers by pulling defenses in tighter around the TH, is offset by how easy it is then, for a horde of low level attackers, like a Barcher attack, to zero you. Since it is more likely to get hit by cheap troops at lvl 4, than it is to be hit with more expensive ones, (attackers don't expect a big gain in resources from lvl 4, so typically they try and get away as cheap as possible when attacking), I opted for the better protection against the inexpensive masses. Watch your replays, and if there is a certain specific point that the Giants are always getting through, we can try moving the bomb(s) and/or the Spring Trap to compensate. The Spring Trap is the best defense against Giants you have at this level. Ideally we want the Giants to bunch up before they hit it, so it will throw off the maximum number of them possible. If you are getting hit frequently with Giants in one area, we may be able to put a Spring Trap just where they enter, AFTER they hit a bomb, which will slow the lead Giants ever so slightly, allowing the rest to bunch up with them when they then step on the Spring Trap.
Your absolute best bet though, is to upgrade the base completely as fast as realistically possible, and move up a level. With each new level you get more defenses to work with, and then you actually have a little more choice as to what to put where, in order to compensate for various attackers strategies. I honestly believe that is an intentional aspect of the game design, that trys to get people to spend money in order to level up quickly. While that is always an option, patience will work as well, it just takes time to get there!
Watch your replays, keep upgrading as far as you can, and let me know what you think about where you are getting attacked, and if it's consistently in one spot, or if you are just overmatched for your defenses, in which case all you can do is wait to level up.
UPDATE: I've maxed my walls and defense buildings, but im still getting destroyed by people that have lots of giants. Any way to prevent this? btw pls respond.
Hello Wired fuzzy! I'm now using this base, and it is AMAZING. It helps kill most air troops (i.e balloons) and the design sometimes funnels goblins right into those bombs and the spring traps. The only problem that sometimes rekts my base are the giant/wiz combo. My base recently got attacked by that, and it got destroyed. Is there any way to prevent that? btw my walls are still lvl 3. Thanks for your help and the comment!
Hi Nishie Thefishie! Glad to see someone is still using my bases! Hope it goes well for you. If you need any help, or if you continue to use my bases, and find one that needs updating, please let me know.
This looks like a great base! I'm currently using your TH3 loadout and I think i might have too many trophies, but im getting destroyed by air troops. Thats ok, because i'm going to upgrade to TH4 soon :D

Good Day Sir Wired! I have been tired of losing in my current rank which 800+ . The reason why I lost was because of I being purposely insisted on gaining 1000+ Trophies in mere days. But to my suprise I was heavily being outgunned since my highest level on my barracks is only 5. In which other would already have a level 2 wizard which would incenerate my defences quickly. In any case, I have designed my base to be like yours. I hope to have more wins than loses now. Finally, thank you for your plan!
