Journey to TH9

Its been a week on TH8 and it is fun. I have made a lot of progress and I am looking forward to keep moving ahead with it.

 Achievements

During this week, I got 3 big ones.

  • Got to Level 70 // I am i think 4th in my clan when it comes to Levels – feels good
  • I got promoted to a Co-leader. This was a big one as the clan voted for me
  • I got the Gold Grab – it means that I got about 100M gold in CoC in last few months.

 

Upgrades

As planned, I already got the DE Drill, and the Lab is ready to get me all new level troops. I got all the new builders – only one left is Tesla. The 2nd Dark Barrack  is in progress. The strategy I had earlier is paying off and I am moving quickly. I had to dump a lot of Gold once again in Level 7 walls. This got me all my walls including the new 50 walls I get on TH8.  The next big one is going to be 111 million in Gold to get all my walls to Level 8. The mission is in progress and today in next hour or so I will be dumping all of my gold into 7 of those walls, taking me to 10.

 

Attack

Raiding has been good in last week or so. Given that I managed to stay on target to get get all upgrades and even get walls done only goes to show for it. I have been playing the game only couple of hours in a day (nights when i am back from office), but it has been great overall. Even today I managed to get 2 Mil gold very quickly. The Elixir is freely available than Gold as now – only obvious. The free collector bases are there, but you got to be patient. I got impatient once and then I did lose pretty badly going up against 3 mortars which were centralized. My barbs and archers were annihilated. Getting DE ar 1200-1400 is pretty tough. I got about 9K DE in 1 week, but it has been a very hard  work to get all that. I want to get the last 2.5K when i can start my BK to Level 5 which will give me the all new and cool Iron Fist. Again – even on TH8 – the Gold/Loot is there – don’t know why ppl still crib about new loot system.

Defense

This has been good too. I started off with a new base design. It was inspired from a clan mate (Ka5tle) who is on TH7. I modified it a little, and it had 2 huge pressure points. This is the base design and here are the defense logs. The problem wasn’t how much it lost – i only got about 54% or so, the issues was this base was losing all the storages and it was a huge loss.

I then switched to my a variant of my TH7 base and it did extremely well.
