Clash of Clans // TH8 // Base Eval // Pingfao Tesla Theme Park

This is my 2nd base in this series where I am testing TH8 bases. This week it was Tesla Theme park – the defense version. The base was okay i guess. I lost a lot of loot, which i think was okay and expected. But this base didnt win me a lot of attacks. I was still losing a lot.

CoC – TH8 – Base 02 – Defense Log

Here is the second post in the series where I am testing various well known TH8 bases and seeing how they hold up in the defense. This base – 02 is the famous Pokeball design. I dont even have to post the picture, but I will because this base is something but i will because i did make some ammends to it. When I read how this base was supposed to help you save resources, it was all about people attacking from the bottom-right and it is okay to lose elixir – this design will save you all of your gold storages and also the DE storage.

Clash of Clan

In summary, the base does pretty well – you need a very strong and powerful army to beat this base. I got 2 starred and both times the attacker needed level 6 troops and a few spells. I was hovering around the 1300-1400 trophy ranges and at that range you will lose quite a lot of loot every time you get attacked, but most of the times it will be elixir. You don’t lose a lot of gold. Here is the defense log for the entire week.

TH8 Base 02 – Defense Log

My base for the first week and its Defense Log

IMG_0086

 

You will see this is a good farming base. I didn’t lose all 4 storages (barring once). So why change it? Simply because this would not hold all my defenses. you can see I had 1 Wz Tower outside (just finished) and then I still have 1 Tesla coming up very soon. I had to get to a proper TH8 Base.

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.

Clash of Clans

story short, this is a Tower Defense Game that has got me hooked on for a few months now. It all started back on November and not it has been about 3 months since i first started playing this game.

I have played a lot of games in past but this is by far the 2nd game only that I have liked and played a lot (first bring FIFA on PS3). This is a fun past time which for me sometimes has more than being a past time – it is addictive to a certain extent but i guess I am now finally reaching a point when this is going to be a nice past time – playing for a couple of hours once i am back home just like I used to do with playing PS3 back in 2013.
