Ok, so I built this base exactly as shown, as it seemed pretty legit. Well, fellas, gotta say it isn't any better than most farming base. Got barched. Well, mostly barched, with 76 archers at level 6, 78 barbs at level 6, 3 level 3 wall breakers, 12 level 6 giants, and 2 healing spells. They took the town hall, and pretty much strolled to the center of my base, crushing everything on the way.
Now, I'm a pretty well maxxed out TH 8. I have an archer tower still at 9, and a couple hidden teslas to go another round of upgrades. Yeah, and maybe only 20% of my walls are at max, but c'mon, these guys just plowed through to the center. Ok... So he only got the 1 star. He also took 1,414 in DE, 168,099 in elixer, and 108,923 in gold. He did not leave alot of scraps for the dogs to fight over either.
Gonna have to do some heavy analysis on this and see if I can tweak it. Shame to scrap it, as it does look cool.
