Avoiding Attack

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Clash of Clans

If you find that you are being regularly attacked by other players, you may be a particularly tempting target for other players. Generally this will mean that you have a lot of resources up for grabs that other players are after. A good counter to this is to spend you resources before you go offline. Queue up units (you can do this even if your Army Camp is full up), perform research, build walls, buy defences and even decorations - just to get rid of your resources.

Your Storage and Mines should either be empty or very well protected. This will discourage other players from attacking you. Don't put all of your Storage or Mines in the same place, either. This will allow your enemies to target one specific section of your base with their entire army.

Upgrade sections of your walls to also help in discouraging enemy attacks.

I agree, I don't like the new updates. It seems to me it would be much more rewarding to fight someone close to your same caliber, the other is just cowardly bullies praying on lesser equipped claners because they are afraid to attack someone in their own caliber to test their metal. So sad that the bullies have taken over the game, no skill required!

I feel you. At least I just got revenge on the TH8 sh!ts that keep 3-starring me by completely leveling one's base as a th7. Ty for the 2k dark elixir! ^_^

The name of this game should be "Beat Up On The Little Guys"! The days when I played to match my skills with equal players are over. Trophy Dumping is what it's all about now. I log on, drop a couple of hundred trophies, and then start destroying easy targets. Then I drop more trophies and repeat. There are just too many players now who don't appreciate a fair fight. So, if you can't beat 'em join 'em. COC is sliding backwards.

The whole point of the Game is to attack and get attacked. You're obviously not gonna fight a losing battle are you?

Lossing connection multiple times in a row when I'm about to win the attac, I'm starting to think that there is the way to make people loose connection

If you lose connection as you're about to win, the battle keeps going in your absence. So as long as you deployed all your troops and you were about to "win" you should still win

Best tips I could give:
1. Place Wiz towers near storages
2. Don't put your giant bomb outside your walls. Instead, put them in such a way that enemy troops will walk through near storages (effective against barbs/arch/gobs
3. Place spring traps on the intersection of your outside walls to keep wallbreakers messing with your planned defense. Wallbreakers are likely to blow themselves up on wall intersections.
4. I personally put air defense on the first layer of defense inside my walls because of the fact that air attacks are uncommon to farmers. Plus they are very tanky - around 1k HP.
5. And the most obvious is put your town hall in the corner of the map. There's no assurance of not getting looted but it still increases your chance from TH hunters thus giving you free shield.

PS. Reinforcement troops are also optional. Wizards and arch are great defense. Also before logging out make sure that your barbarian king and arch queen are active so they can help defend your gold/elix.

M geting attacked frequently.My shield just get down within 5 secs i get attacked.Sometimes i get irritated by just not staying neutral without shield without attacked.Kept my TH outside, it sure helps getting shield but sometimes i get attacked by strong players n get looted around 100k resources.If i try to reduce my trophies to to 500 i get trophies back in just 5 mins. So i m staying around 1k trophies for now so sometimes i get lucky to get shield loosing 1k resources n sometimes get unlucky on loosing 100k resorces ... i have watching this game become aggresive suddenly for nearly 1 month. Sometimes i think of not logging off from game after loosing the shield ... lol ... have a good game everyone n best of luck ...

For me, we should just go to a league that is appropriate to our defenses. But not go to low because youcant take large loot from ohters if you go to bronze you will only see 1k of their loots. Better go to silver 2 or 1

Haha well that's not true. I went down to bronze 2 from crystal and I've been getting over 300k of each and 1k dark elixir pretty regularly.
