There are dozens of different attacking compositions out there at your disposal – and most of them have dozens of variations. If you’re not sure what attacking composition to use, it is probably because you are lost in the jungle when you search online.
Each composition, especially on YouTube, claims to be the best and guarantee to get you everything. The truth is, you need to know what different attacking compositions will help you achieve your goals. Like there is no single tool in the world that can be used for everything, there is no single army you can use for every thing in Clash of Clans, you have to always keep that in your mind!
In this guide here, I will help you choose the right attacking composition for what you are looking for and also give you detailed guides for the best working ones so you can use them right away 🙂
Different Troop Compositions & Different Purposes
If you search for “the best attacking composition” online you’ll be lost. Simply because there isn’t THE ONE AND SINGLE BEST, there are lots out there that work for their individual purpose. Before you go out and start trying new compositions, you should define, for yourself, a clear goal to accomplish.
If you start trying out new attacking styles, you will quickly recognize that it takes time and resources to get proficient. My rough rule of thumb is that you need 10 attacks to get the basics, 100 to be confident in using it and 500 to be perfect using it.
You see how trying them out is like a walk in the dessert?
If you’re willing to try a new troop composition, you should use one that will help towards your goal instead of wasting your time and resources on a style that you will not use long term.
What Do You Want To Do With The Troop Composition
In general, you can divide the attacking strategies in three major different categories:
Farming Strategy – This strategy is used to get you loot and primarily it should be cheap so you make a decent profit but strong enough to also work when one of your heroes is upgrading.
Trophy Pushing Strategy – You will use this strategy to push trophies, so you will need a setup that is able to hit any base hard enough to get at least 1 star; in return it is quite expensive in training costs.
Clan War Strategy – You have plenty of time to scout and see the weaknesses of a base but still have to 3-Star within the given time – that makes war strategies an own category.
As you have seen now, each kind of strategy has different strength & weaknesses, but I think now you’re ready to choose the one you want to use 🙂
