    Ignore the other comments about "Free Gems" it's all a scam to get you to download dodgy software which doesn't even work.

    The only way to get Gems in Clash of Clans is to buy them with a google play gift card or bank card.
    I've been using Earn2Game to get free google play gift cards to buy gems with, all you do is complete small online tasks to earn points, then trade your points for the prize you want.
    I always get $10 google play cards from them. Google it or click here:https://goo.gl/H7ip98

    If you plan on going higher than gold 3, maybe gold 2, don't use this base. You are guranteed to lose. I've been using it for months and the results are always the same. My TH8 is nearly maxed with all level 7 walls. They come in on the open AD and easily get your TH and DE. Also this base is very easily Barch raided for 50%. The longer I have this base the less I like it.

    @Wired Fuzzy ... Just got one of those 'virtually' non existant attacks from top right.

    Barbs(4) 66
    Arch (5) 79
    Drag (2) 2
    Valk (1) 1
    Rage (2) 1
    Heal (2) 1

    38% One Star... Just seems like it shouldn't be that easy for such a low level to even 1 star this base.
    This base can be good, but it is way to vulnerable to unpredictable attacks. That AD being used for a bait seems like a good idea, but with it gone, there isn't much aerial coverage left for the area. There is a wizard tower, which is good splash for tier 1 troops and minions, but it doesn't do much against dragons, and all that leaves really covering the TH is an outer archer tower, that you'll be lucky to have by the time they are attacking the TH.
    I know you have focused the defenses on the bottom right, and covered most of the left side, but the top right is so ridiculously vulnerable to aerial attack it's not even funny.
    Anyway, I'm still using this for now, but thinkin I might to try another one soon. Thanks for reading.

    @warpandaz I'm not the strategical genius who builds plans or anything, but I would go with a DE drill if want minimal impact on base layout and functionality. If you're not so worried about that, then a storage would make the most sense.

    I've been using the base for a while, and I like it, but it is really annoying that I can lose a defense pretty easily if they Barch me. I lose more to Barch raids, then anything else. My Mortars are maxed, and all my other defenses are 1 away from maxed for TH8 except my Teslas (level 3), and my traps are all maxed. I have a little over half level 7 walls, and rest are still 6 (working on that now), but I don't see that making a huge difference in Barch raids. All non defensive building are also maxed. If you wanna look my clan is PhylsCrew (it's an L) IGN is 'samwise'

    Hey Fuzzy. Used your TH7 plan all the way through max upgrading and am about 3 weeks out with Th8 to be maxed (minus the walls, im at 25% skulls right now). And i love to bases. I know you don't really raid, but do you have a time frame for the th9 base? Or a working model on paper that you havent put into action yet? I'd love to beta test it for you. To see your current base in action, my clan is RougarouSouth, screenname same as forums. Thanks.

    gernash - Thanks for the thumbs up on that. :-D
    The "bat" base thing made me laugh. I actually tried to design a working one of those for Halloween, and it's nearly impossible. I did come up with one that sorta kinda looked like a bat with both wings all the way down, and the gap between them a funnel. The best I could say for it is that it didn't completely suck, but it wasn't good enough to keep either. Weirdest base I ever saw was one that spelled out "GO AWAY" with the walls at the top of the village. Man, you just gotta attack that kind of stuff, it's almost compulsory.
    Glad to hear you're at TH8, and you're smart to wait till your stuff is ready for the new layout. It's really hard to convince some people about the whole patience thing with upgrading. Looking forward to following your progress, and thanks for the continued support!

Anytime I see the 'bat' Base regardless of the loot I have to attack it just to show them they error of their ways haha, finally got my th8 upgrade done. But I'm getting new structures to a functional lvl then I'll be using this, thanks again for all your effort and time, gernash, clash on moon's haha peace.

    simon_simpa - Good to hear from you again! Glad to hear you are still using my bases. I wish I had time to put up a TH8 CW base, I just looked through the ones with high listings, and was somewhat disappointed myself. Out of all the ones I looked at for TH8, the one that looked most like something I would do was this one:
    HDV8 GDC by Pascalik ( plan/685026 )
    I have never tried the plan myself, but the design looks solid to me, and I think it should do well against the most different kinds of attacks. Some plans are better suited to certain types of attacks than others, but if you don't know what you are going to get hit with, I think this type of design is the best overall.
    Hopefully I'll be able to do a CW base one of these days, but in the meantime, if you try this one and like it, please let me know. ( And let Pascalik know as well of course.)
    Good Luck! Wired Fuzzy

    Grafo Libre - Hi! Actually, I was the first one to rate and comment on your base almost a month ago! I see you have made some good modifications since I last saw it, so I raised your rating from 4 to 5 stars, (I actually read your comment and raised your rating several days ago, but I have been unable to leave a comment on this plan page for some days due to a server problem, which we finally got sorted out).
    Yes, I know my description sucks. I have been adding to my descriptions as time goes on since I started, and they all need to be rewritten. I probably won't shorten them much, as many people are glad to get all the info, but I do need to lay it out better so you can find what you are looking for. Now all I need is enough time to do them... and that's not looking good any time soon unfortunately! :-P
    P.S. I actually think your outer Storages are less protected than mine are, and your center ones are more bunched up than mine.
    3 Stars for my base... really? Wow. I thought I was hard to please!
    Thanks for commenting and rating though, and Clash On!

I just checked out your three plans, and you shouldn't have any similar occurrences along those lines. I didn't comment on, or rate them... seemed liked the nicest thing I could do. Good luck mate.

    DG the boss - Great question! The reason is mass Archer attacks. They have gotten really popular, and Archers have a three and a half square range, (all directions including diagonal). If you toggle on the range on the plan, you'll see that you pretty much can't set an Archer down anywhere that it can reach a building, and still not be under fire from your defenses. If I move any (but one) of the buildings out any farther, they can be sniped by Archers without the Archers getting hit until the building goes down, and the Archers come closer. Actually, the top barracks on the left could go out one click, and/or two clicks up, but it didn't seem to me like it gained much advantage, and if it's against the wall, it at least has to go down before a Wallbreaker can be used there. Hope that explained my thinking, and thanks again for taking the time to comment!

    I am just curious as to why you didn't move out the buildings from the walls to extend the perimeter, as that will give your defenses a slight amount more of time to lower the Hitpoints of the troops?

    Definitely. it was essentially the same, I just moved a few bombs around. From how I was attacked, I'm just thinking that there has to be another way to lure them to the bottom.. Maybe switching the th with the de storage?

    Matty p - Sorry to hear it didn't go as well as expected, but you are right, the rules are somewhat different in Clan War bases. For Clan Wars we are going to need to even out the AD's so it's covered from all angles, since, like you pointed out, there are no incentives in a CW to lure people to a certain area except the actual defenses themselves. You can actually use one AD as bait, and make sure you have lots of potential Tesla spots for them to worry about everywhere else there is an AD, but if you do you'll have to concentrate your Air Bombs around that "Bait" AD, so it's not defenseless when it goes down. I'm sure we can come up with some mods that work if we put our heads together. Is the base essentially still the same as my plan shows, or if not, do you have a copy of what you have already done I could look at? I wish I had time to just sit down and lay out a new one, but I am swamped at the moment. Maybe we can co-author a CW base out of this, if you have the time. Let me know what you think.

    dgreenstein - I haven't heard from you for a while, thanks for checking in! I would leave out that builder in the top right corner, as that will cause very little change in an attack, it's only there to add a bit of space when the attackers are spawning. You might try stacking up some decorations there if you have any, or at least don't remove any obstacles that happen to grow there. We all now you can set down troops on those things, but most people still don't, weird, but true. Hope that helps, and looking forward to hearing from you again.

    So I tried it in a war, and it didn't go as well as expected.. Of course, without the lure of resources, it's impossible to assume that people will attack from the bottom right. I was attacked from the top, with 10 dragons, but only gave up two stars so not a total loss.

Please let us know if you find trap placements that result in better defenses overall, (better more times than it's not), so I can see if we should all be trying your idea. I hope you have good luck in the Clan War, you should keep in mind that you can swap those high hit point Storages out to the outside, or at least the outer ring, to slow down non-defense targeting troops before they get into the interior. Since you don't lose resources anyway, they make terrific shields.
    By the way, you were right about people not being able to figure the base out quickly, that and tricking them into attacking from that right side where most of the firepower is aimed, is why it works so well.
    Thank you very much for taking the time to comment, and your support, and I look forward to hearing from you again.

    This base is awesome.. Not quite sure why it works, wired probs explains it that lengthy description, but people can't figure it out. I've been hanging out in the 14-1500 trophy range and I've only been 2 starred twice in the last two weeks, both by th9's. I've made a few changes (mostly moving spring traps and skeleton traps) and I'm going to try using it in a clan war... I'll let you know how it goes.

    Look solid. Teslas in the core, well placed traps, well placed splash defense and unlureable CC. But it can destroyed 2 stars when attacked from upper site, but they need to destroy outer buildings first to open the way to go into the core and destroy the TH. If they didn't destroy the outer buildings, the air troops will continue destroying outer buildings and don't go to the core. It's weak from air troops, but great for ground troops.

    Take a look at my farming base:

    Kaneaster - That would make a lot of sense. Your instinct on how to correct that problem was right on the money though! I really appreciate the loyalty, I will try and squeeze in a Clan War base as soon as I have some time. I think I can base it off of the Pure Defense base like I did with my latest series, and that saves me quite a bit time. Mostly trying to rearrange the buildings to take advantage of their varying hit points and where each one would be best served. The defenses themselves will probably only shift around a little to accommodate the building changes. Thanks again for all your support, you've been GREAT!

    Kaneaster - OK, thanks for the update. I think that your mod would probably not work as well in a Defense base, but it's good information for me when I'm trying to put together a CW base. In Clan Wars attackers aren't interested in your resources, in fact those buildings have such high hit points they are low priority unless they're in the way. In a regular attack, I can pretty much depend on attackers looking for resources, and approaching the base with that in mind. In Clan Wars though, the objective is solely to destroy the base, so attacks are planned differently. In a regular attack, most people using Hogs are trying to take out that AD, and go from there to the Storages, so the Giant Bombs work well where I show them. In a CW though, where they have a chance to study your base first, and plan ahead, I can see where they would come at it completely differently. I am a bit surprised they didn't still try and take out that AD, but that's also good for me to know. Personally, if I was attacking this in a Clan War, I would come at it from the top left/left side, so I appreciate the input, as I didn't anticipate an attack with Hogs from where they are coming in for you.
    Again, thanks for the info and continued support, I really appreciate it!

    I took both bombs from the bottom portion--one from the outside and one next to the AD--moved one between the testlas in the middle and the other next to the cannon I was talking about. I figured the obvious space next to the AD was enough to divert an attack away from it, and it has so far. the teslas act as magnets for hogs, which is why I moved the big bomb in-between them.

    EVERYONE - I wanted to let you know that I have gone live with the first base in my new "F.C. Defense Base" series. This base actually consists of 2 plans. They are:

    "TH8 F.C. [D] Defense Base by Wired Fuzzy"
    And...

    TH8 F.C. [F] Defense Base by Wired Fuzzy

    F.C. stands for "Farm Convertible"
    **THIS IS BOTH A FARMING BASE AND A DEFENSE BASE IN ONE**
    It is reconfigurable from a Farming Base to a Defense Base, and the switch between the two configurations requires only 11 steps, and about a minute to complete. The purpose of this series of Convertible bases is to have a base that can be a serious Defense base when you are holding or building a trophy count, yet still become a great base for farming and guarding resources with very little effort.

    This base is presented on two different plan pages. There is a separate page for each of the two layouts, in order to make it easier to switch back and forth visually, instead of just a text description of the changes and differences between the two. The one with the [D] in the title is the Defense Configuration, and the one with the [F] in the title is the Farming Configuration.

    Please check them out, leave me a comment, and give me a great rating on them! :-D
    I hope everyone enjoys trying them out as much as I enjoyed designing them.

    Kaneaster - I hadn't run into a Hog attack from that direction before, but a Giant Bomb is a perfect answer. If you move a Gold Mine out, be sure and slide something over, like moving the Elixir Storage to the left one click, so the space is only two squares wide, or someone can spawn troops there. The Wizard Tower should be able to finish off what's left of any that get hit when the Giant Bomb goes off. Thanks for the input, keep up the good work! I am curious as to which Giant Bomb you moved, just so I know what area was left without it, for future reference.

    Yes that was definitely a compliment. That was the only flaw i could find in the design. It's something i came up with to counter most th8 bases with one exposed air defense. Otherwise this is insanely good. My current clan is called SubClan. Lol you dont actually need a password to get in. Just say you know ohshapitznathan in the clan lol.

    Kaneaster - No sweat on the double post, it happens to me too, you just can't believe it hasn't gone through yet. Since I'm a moderator, I just deleted it! :-D
    I am truly humbled by your praise... aww, who am I kidding, I did a happy dance when I read that! I Thank You so much for those kind words of praise, they made my day, maybe even my week!
    Unfortunately, I am not even close to TH9. I am constantly mucking about with my bases, looking for new improvements, and that costs me a lot of resources some times. Also, I don't raid with this base, as it is the original plan concept base, and I want to show what it can do, and if you could set your traps to auto reset for you, you could gain trophies with it, quite literally on auto-pilot. So that means I don't build up resources as quickly as if I Farmed. Therefore my upgrade process on this particular base is excruciatingly slow.
    Again, I am thrilled to hear how much you like my bases, (you DID 5 star them right?)
    :-D and I appreciate your taking the time to show you're support!

    Wired, your plans are so good that they make me feel inadequate. So much thought put into them. Please continue the good work, because IMHO, no one has even come close to the defensive plans that you build. Protects my storages, gets me trophies, and almost never gets 3 starred (only once with three defensive structures upgrading). Are you close to TH9 yet?

    I definitely like the idea behind this base. This base will indefinitely stand up to most attacks. Only flaw I have with the exposed air defense is the fact that it can theoretically be taken out with lvl5 balloons in a 20 cc, even with the air mines in the way, most likely the loons will reach the air defense in time to do significant damage to destroy it before all dying off. Zap the lower air defense with 3 lightning spells, and then drag raid on the left side to take out that one last air defense and everything else. However, other than that, this is a really smart base. Nice job!

    overlord_dan - GREAT to hear from you! I have actually been playing around with that. I have already scrapped two so far that I started from scratch, as they sucked the big one. I keep coming back to something that really isn't much different than my Pure Defense base, other than the TH being outside the walls, and another Storage having better protection. That made me think about possibly a "TH8 F.C. Pure defense Base by Wired Fuzzy", with the F.C. standing for Farm Convertible. I think I could tweak it so that the TH and a Storage, and maybe a few other items could be easily swapped out to turn what is a solid defense base into a working farming base. Not really a Hybrid, as the focus is still on defense, but one could easily convert it to a farming layout for those times that you need it.
    As I see it, the basics of a good Defense layout, and a good Farming layout aren't that different, other than the TH positioning, and as much improved Storage protection as you can get with the space gained by moving the TH outside. I already do my best to protect the Storages, so it's not a big stretch to me.
    Please think about it, and let me know if you think I am on the right track, idea wise. My experience with Defending is probably 100 times my experience with Farming, as I found I didn't really care for farming, and the time it required, although I can't argue with the logic of doing it, it only makes sense if you're not trying to prove a plan, like I am with the Pure Defense base.
    I look forward to hearing from you on this idea,( and anyone else who might have an input as well ).
    Thanks again man, glad to see you're still here!

    I agree with you on the Skeletons... set to ground seems to get the best results for me too, although they are kind of amusing to watch as Air defense in the replays, I don't know why, just looks funny to me.

    Hey Wired Fuzzy,

    Your base did great in the war! Our clan won by 40 or so stars, and I got attacked once by their ranked nine person. I'm ranked 22. He BARELY onestarred me, only getting 50%. Btw, he was TH9 and he had maxed out troops for his TH. A few alterations I would make for it to be a war base is to move the dark elixir storage out of the middle and put something else there.

    As for the skeletons, I have found that I am getting attacked from the ground more. They often act as a meat shield for my archers/wizards/balloons (For my war attacks) and their troops either get seriously held up or exterminated.

    I have recently gotten into the crystal league, and it's great! I love your bases so much I convinced my dad to put yours on his Th6. I still haven't heard how that is going, I'll ask him later.

    Thank you so much for all of your hard work and for all the time you have spent for us!

    J-my - I feel stupid, but I don't know what you mean by "you need a tl;dr for this or an outline".
    The Giant Bomb outside of the walls goes against my grain as well, as I hate spending that money to blow up a lone barbarian or something. HOWEVER... that particular Giant Bomb has taken out literally a hundred Hog Riders by now, between this base, and my TH7 base, which has identical placement in that respect. I am not completely sure why, but out of all the Hog Rider attacks I have ever had, there have only been 2 or 3 that didn't originate directly in front of that Giant Bomb. Between that bomb, the little ones, and the defenses, less than a half dozen Hog Riders NEVER get over the walls, and up to a dozen can be taken out before they get more than the AD ( which is really used as bait in this plan ), as the other Giant Bomb gets the second wave enough that a few shots from any defense kills them. So, again, I am playing the odds, and I will take the expense of a few flops, for the killer defense against the Hogs.
    Not fond of the Wizard and Mortar being together myself, but all my attempts to shuffle them around made things worse, so that's where they ended up. A lot of my placements come from watching my replays to the point of insanity, but it pays off... over the long haul. It's that odds thing again, if I get better results more often a certain way, then so be it, even if it doesn't look quite right. That's what comes about when you actually USE the bases you design over a period of time. Sometimes your best guess as to how it SHOULD work, just doesn't pan out, and something that looks "wrong" actually works.
    Thanks again for trying my base, and especially for taking the time to make great comments. If I can be of any help, please feel free to ask.

    Preeway - Hi, and thanks for your comments! Your trophy count is indeed in the correct ranges for this base. Actually, if you are getting attacked by higher level TH's, (and you really SHOULD be at this point), a 50/50 win/loss ratio IS a SURE THING! The higher TH level attackers gain LESS trophies from winning against you, and you gain MORE trophies from defeating them, which will ALWAYS result in a net gain in trophies. It's just a matter of playing the mathematical odds to your favor.
    Now, having said that, you should be doing better than 50/50. I would expect more of a 70/30 or even, at worst, a 60/40 win/loss ratio from your level of upgrades in my experience. this is on an average over weeks though. I have had a spell of a half dozen losses in a row before, and while I was beating myself up about how to stop that, I got a string of about 8 or 9 wins, one right after the other over the next couple of days. So, it's the long term plan that we are sticking to... temporary ups and downs don't mean much over the long haul.
    As for the DE Storage, it's covered by 3 Mortars, 2 Wizard towers, 2 Teslas, and 2 AD's. In addition, it is behind 3 walls from every direction, and that is as good as it gets in just about any plan you'll find for a TH8 base. In order to protect it more, I would have to use up more walls from somewhere else, which would mean putting three or more buildings currently inside the base, outside the base in order to free up enough walls to do anything with. The problem with that, is that if you have too many buildings outside the base, anyone with a spare 100 or so Archers can 1 star you by getting 50% of your buildings without ever breaking a wall. That's not good!
    Unfortunately, I think what you are experiencing is what I call TH8 DE shock syndrome. When you first get to TH8 from TH7, you start getting hit by EVERYONE above you as soon as you have ANY DE to steal... NOBODY who is a TH9 or higher passes that opportunity, and even the TH8's can be greedy enough to try for it. Once you reach TH9 in particular, DE is EVERYTHING to you. They would attack a bear in a cardboard box, if it meant a few more precious drops of that stuff, as they need it for almost everything they have. Until you get higher up, hanging on to your DE is gonna be a real challenge, no matter what. I still maintain that this base will do as good of a job of that as any you can find. You just can't keep someone who is enough levels above you from stomping you if they wanted it bad enough. Think of it as you coming across a TH6 with completely full Gold Storages... you WILL have that Gold! The only difference is that you can find lots of Gold around on all lower level bases, but they NEED that DE so bad you can't even imagine it yet, and it's hard to find, and virtually doesn't exist below TH8.
    I hope I have explained my thinking clearly enough, if not, please try me again, and I'll try and do better!
    Thanks again for taking the time to comment, and trying my base. Clash On!

    @Jason- The issue isn't how many trophies I have. I intentionally keep me in the realm of 1600-1800 trophies. I am have just recently upgraded to TH 8 and am almost finished getting all the defenses up to the TH7 maximum level like all the others. I will begin upgrading my WTs to lvl 5, mortars to lvl 5, cannons and ATs to lvl 9, etc., next. I agree that not having maxed out defenses for TH8 makes a difference. I was simply pointing out that my results are at best 50/50, and worse if my storages get over 60% full. I think it is a good layout but it is a far cry from a sure thing in my experience.

    the only things i don't like are the one giant bomb not inside your walls and therefore easily tripped.

    and the wiz tower and mortar in the lower left being in the same compartment, but that's less major.

    Wired Fuzzy,

    Finished last season at 23-7. I will certainly take that (esp. since 3 or 4 of the losses were to players 20 levels above me). I was sitting at Silver I and would dump trophies to stay there while upgrading defenses, etc. Literally gained too many trophies too quickly to stay there. Am in Gold III now and dumping trophies to stay out of Gold II for a little while longer. Great design and thank you again.

    Wired Fuzzy,
    Our next war should start tomorrow, and I'm gonna try out this base without any tweaks. Earlier today I got attacked with a ridiculous army from a TH9, and they barely onestarred me at 50%. The skeleton traps are working very well with giants and hogs, but should the one next to the Dark Elixir Storage be air? I'll let you know how your base holds up in the war.
    Thanks for all of your great work,
    Jason

    Preeway, I have been using it for a while now, and I have found that it really does work. I think the solution is to max out your defenses. I am curious, how many trophies do you have?

    I was using your previous TH8 pure defense payout with modest success, but so far I am 0-2 in the last two attacks getting two starred on one of them. The DE is extremely vulnerable in my opinion as both attacks against me made their way to it with only modest resistance. I just upgraded to TH about 2 weeks ago so my defenses still need to work. Maybe this base works better with maxed out defenses? I gave it three stars.

    NOTE TO EVERYONE... The brand new, much improved TH6 v2.0 Pure Defense Base by Wired Fuzzy has just gone live. WAAAYYYY better protection from the increasingly common Barcher attacks! Try it, You'll like it!
    And, as always, please give me a 5 star rating if you haven't already, (you can always lower it later if you hate it), to keep the "rating rats" from chewing away at it with 1 star ratings to raise the ratings on their own bases, until it gets buried on page 50, and no one who could use it ever gets to see it.
    THANKS YET AGAIN to EVERYONE for the continued support, and CLASH ON!

    Jason1076 - Yes, I think it would do well. I also think it could be tweaked to make it even better for Clan Wars, but it will have to wait for a bit, as I am swamped with work at the moment (both real work, and this work), since I have been out for a while. If you try it as a Clan War base, please let me know how it did, and if something failed miserable, try and let me know what. I would really like that info, as I can't war with this base in order to keep my defense wins "pure", and it's something I am very curious about. Thanks for checking in again, and your continued support.
