TH8 War Base Layouts for Clan War 2016

TH8 War Base Layouts for Clan War 2016

by April 30, 2016

As a Town Hall 8 player you have one of the most awkward positions in your Clan Wars. If you look at the recent Clan Wars you’ve had you might see a certain pattern that you mostly get attacked by Town Hall 9, maybe even rushed Town Hall 10, attackers. This has one major reasons – You don’t have the hard Defenses in your TH8 War Base to stand up against mass Hog Rider or Dragon attacks. Lazy and rushed player use this to get the 3 Stars out of you quite easy – until now!

I hope I can hold what I just promised but in this post I have gathered solid Clan War strategies you can – sorry, have to – apply to get most of your game but also give you the most solid TH8 War Base Designs I have found for 2015. Always remember:

You want them to take 2 attacks to get 3 Stars out of you, while you should get 3 Stars out of your 2 attacks!

TH8 War Base Design that defend Stars (including 4 Mortars and Air Sweeper)

I actually don’t want to get too deep into the mind behind a War Base Design but if you want to know the essential theory on what a War Base makes a good War Base I recommend you this post about creating a good War Base. The important thing for your TH8 War Base is to know what is actually attacking you and after I checked lots of replays from my Clan Wars I think you have the Giant/Wall Breaker combos mixed with Hog Rider or all-Hog Rider attacks and also some Dragon attacks. In this case your Town Hall 8 War Base needs to fulfill these purposes:

  1. Have decent Trap Funneling with Spring Traps to take care of the Giants
  2. Use Giant Bombs to kill Hog Rider groups
  3. Centered Air Defenses against Dragons to scare them off and corner Storages to make them run out of time

I don’t want to lie to you about the last one – you will not prevent that your base looses against mass Dragon attacks if they are higher Level but with the correct placement you will scare some of them off. If you calculate the costs for a mass Dragon attack you will easily see that these attackers only go for the big cash (probably more rushed Town Hall 10s than you) or the safe 3 Stars. Here we go with the designs I recommend using as TH8 War Base (I rebuilt them with my TH10 account, but only used the Defenses and structures you have at Town hall 8) – psst… my favourite is the last one:

Strong Anti Hog Rider TH8 War Base Layout. Your attacker will need maxed Hog Rider and also good Healing Spell skills to destroy you. The Skeletons get triggered pretty erly in the attack and will give the Hog Rider a hard time.

TH8 Teaser Base with strong Funneling. If your attacker doesn’t exactly know what to do he will learn to hate Traps. Very successful layout in my Clan!

TH8 Anti Hog Rider and TH8 Anti Air War Base layout Clash of Clans Town Hall 8 War Base 1 Anti Air

TH 8 War Base with strong Anti Air capabilities. The inside Air Defenses makes it almost impossible to get 3 Stars with mass Dragons. It’s also good against Hog Rider with the Giant Bomb packs.
