this base is bad for new th 8 who dont have strong defense building. deploy giant + lots of archer got free gold and elixir. archer and cannon dont have enough dps to wipe out giant.
when you say point sweeper at bottom I am interpreting this as towards the TH
JonnyCinquo sounds good. I hope you like it. I got two starred though using this base. It was a town hall 10 with max troops and he barely made it to my dark elixir. So it will do you good 98% of the time. That 2% is town hall 10s with max troops, haha. I will have a Ladyboy base for town hall 9 in about a week or so. Stay up to date with my account for that.
I'm really close to maxed TH8. I will try this setup and hopefully return to rate it and comment on its effectiveness :)
