Introduction to Attacking

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
Last Updated:

Attacking in Clash of Clans is where a lot of the resources you will earn are gathered. A lot of the preparation for it takes place in your own base, where you must train the units that you hope to use in the forthcoming battle. These wait patiently, once trained, around your Army Camps.

Once you are ready to do battle, you tap the icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. This allows you to choose one of two options - either attack an AI opponent in the campaign mode, or attack another human player. If you choose to attack the AI, you will now be presented with their base and be able to pick where you want your units to land in. If you choose to attack another human, you have the option to skip past each base, if it looks too tough. Then you can decide whether the next one is more to your liking.

Once you have decided on all this, you can see the enemy base. Simply tap where you want your attacking units to appear (the nuances of which will be explained later on in this section) and then sit back and enjoy the carnage.

Your success in each attack is illustrated by stars. You are awarded one star for destroying at least 50% of the opponent's base. Another star is awarded for destroying the enemy Town Hall. The third and final star is given for total destruction, 100%. Each attack will also earn you a certain amount of Trophies and loot.

just attack for a huge amount of loot,,don't go for trophies, because if u have many trophies other powerfull players will be able to attack you,,,so go for loot because if you have many gold and elixr then only you can upgrade your army and defense,,,hmmmm best of luck for the game...go and shine ahead!!!!
