When you're done with this one, feel free to check out my TH8 base: http://clashofclansbuilder.com/plan/828464
Screenshots and video of construction of this plan here:http://clashlayouts.com/all-layouts/th-7/th-7-war/th7-war-base-layout-97-lauren-with-air-sweeper/
Here is a video of one failed dragon attack by a TH8:
It took some bad attack strategy to survive, but it survived.
... and apparently based on what's written below it has stood up to hogs as well. I imagine this is similar to dragons... you need a little laziness/bad attacking to survive but it will happen.
Ok, as noted below, this base did start out as a modification to an existing base that was already on this site. I have since modified it further to bring it to where it currently stands based on war experience. It has stood up to lvl 1 and lvl 2 dragons as well as giants/wizards but has yet to be attacked by hogs.
Please note: For a long time I didn't think it was possible to survive lvl 2 dragons as a TH7. It is with this base, but if the attacker is smart and holds a couple dragons in reserve to ensure the air defense is attacked early you will still lose. To survive dragons at TH7 you need a combination of a close to maxed base and a slightly lazy/bad attacker. That being said, I've had mid-range TH8's with lvl 2 dragons attack thinking it was ezmode and lose.... which was the goal of this base. Just make it so you don't auto-lose to dragons.
P.S. maxed storages help a lot more than you think, most dragons die as they are burning through a storage.
Congrats on top spot! I'm right behind you, the sad thing is that that is my old war base and it sucked, lol Mine looks way better now, but gets no attention!
Last war someone tried to attack me with hogs. He tried hitting the base from the north and the giant bomb - small bomb combo wiped them out before he could drop a healing potion. He ended up getting 0 stars.
I still hope on making this work. I'm updating my base after every clan war. To be clear, if you have any hope of surviving a lvl 2 dragon attack at th7, you're gonna need every air defense maxed as well as archer towers and teslas. After that, upgrade your storages so they take longer to burn through.
I'll update it soon with what I've learned.
I was 3 starred by level 2 dragons. There's not much you can do about that at th7 though. Still a solid layout. Rated it a 5 since there's not much better out there.
Solid layout. I'll try it out in my next clan war.
