The Best TH12 War Base & Trophy Base Layouts Review

Find here monthly updated base layouts for Town Hall 12 to use in Clan War, Trophy Pushing or Farming

Unlike many other pages (and me in the past), I don’t wanted to just post bases in an endless row that nobody could use because it’s not proven that they will work and also I don’t see the point in posting countless bases when you actually only need one for your home village and one for Clan War at Town Hall 12.

So, instead, I decided to just have two bases here, 1x War Base for TH12 and 1x Trophy Base for TH12 that I will do an in-depth review on and show you why I really like them and how they served me from using it myself.

I’m sure this is more helpful than bombing you with a lot of bases πŸ™‚

The TH12 War Base Design

Let’s start with the base design for Clan War:

???? That’s the TH12 War Base ????

Why I Think It Is The Best

I’ve been using it for several wars including Clan War Leagues and had very good experience with it. I’ve never been 3-Stared in about 20 attacks and here and there attacker only got 1-Star with less than 50% against this base.

Reason enough to use it? I guess so ????

But let’s have a closer look at the defensive capabilities…

General Layout Of The Base

This base here has several nice features that you don’t want to miss, so let’s get into them real quick.

Also, you don’t want to have a Suicide Hero approach to run directly for the Town Hall. The wall make sure that the heroes will go around and then get distracted by other buildings and defenses so there’s no easy take on the Town Hall

This is a really cool feature of this base because no matter what troops enter one of the compartments with an Inferno Tower, they simply can’t reach the next Inferno Tower.

It’s basically impossible to funnel through all three of these Inferno Tower islands and when only one of these Inferno Towers will survive the cleaning troops or leftover troops will have a hard time clearing this base.

Also this helps forcing attackers to use only a certain attacking style against this base, but more on that later below πŸ™‚

best th12 war base january 2020 layout explained dead zonesNormally you see the Eagle Artillery being in the very center of a war base build, but this base here takes a different approach.

The Eagle Artillery is surrounded by dead zones to make it very difficult to actually funnel troops through it from that whole side.

So, this either gives the attacker a bad time or a silly mistake trying to actually attack from that side and get through that Eagle Artillery compartment πŸ™‚

The only attacks that are able to actually get this base somewhere close to a decent 2-Star are attacks using PEKKA-Smash (yes, forget about the air attacks, they will fail miserely against this TH12 War Base ????).

The reason is that it’s extremely difficult to path Loons, Miners, Hogs or any other troop through that islands with the Inferno Towers and the PEKKA-Smash is the only one that can somewhat okay do it.

And there are many pitfalls for those attacks as well, like failing to create a proper funnel, failing to place the Earthquake Spells in the core right to open up the back of the base, etc.

After all, even when doing everything right, the troops still fall short in clearing the Town Hall compartment and the rest of the base and get a 70% 2-Star here, that’s the best i’ve seen so far πŸ™‚

For the best defensive success, I recommend you to have a Lava Hound in your Clan Castle!

Overall a nice pick for the upcoming CWL season and a solid option if you want to use a fresh base that is not used everywhere πŸ™‚

The TH12 Trophy Base Design (Home Village)

With the war base taken care of, let’s jump to the Home Village and look at a base that works great to push trophies as a Town Hall 12 πŸ™‚

Here’s the base layout:

???? That’s the TH12 Trophy Base ????

Why I Think It Is The Best

Solid results from watching the replays, what else? ????

You will see a lot of below 50% 1-Stars and also failed attacks – and that’s what makes this base really great to use.

General Layout Of The Base

There used to be a time when we had the Town Hall exposed and surrounded by the heavy hitpoint buildings and traps and there have been so many players that still thought they are smarter than us and went all-in with a suicide mission for the Town Hall… well, that time is over.

Now the current builds rely more on having the Town Hall in the core again and mess with funneling and let it come down to a brutal honest attacking vs defending power style battle.

The defenses in this base are strategically set so there’s no easy exploit here.

If you go ahead with Queen Charge against this base you will get some nice points but the important defenses are completely out of reach so there’s not much more than collecting percentage and that’s it.

best th12 trophy base january 2020 core funnelIt may look like you can funnel into the core area easily just because there’s a path but the Inferno Towers will make sure (especially with the Air Sweepers) that there’s no easy way in here, although many troops will factor that path – and this is the point where this base keeps messing with pathing and the attacker runs into tricky spots.


I really recommend you to use this base – it’s fresh and there’s nothing you will regret ????

  1. How to get wrecked 100% all the times on war base: Edragons and baloons, 4 Freeze/4 rage. Spam from southwest side, easy peasy.

  2. Thanks I really like that you spend so much time trying to help other people. You’re one of the reasons why I still enjoy the game :D. I like your base layouts too!

  3. Thank you so much for all the effort and the love that goes into making this website so wonderful.
    I took a break from CoC but now that I’m back, I look to you and your wisdom to keep me updated and on top of everything.
    I can’t tell you just how much I appreciate you and everything you are doing to make clashing fun and entertaining for us all.

  4. Hey there!
    I’ve been using your bases since TH7, and I love them. It was always nice, that your trophy bases were good for the defense of loot. But now I’m closing in on TH12, and I see that this base is only trophy, no loot defense.
    Would you kindly post a loot base for TH12 too, for those who doesn’t want to push Legend leageue? (since TH13 is here soon, I’d say this is more relevant)

  5. Seriously, this base drops trophies faster than anything else I have ever used. Losing 50 trophies in the space of 60 minutes, 18% destroyed and the town hall is gone leaving the base for someone else, is doing my head in. You need to win big to ever come close to breaking even with this.

  6. Well I gave your war base and home village a shot. The home village was an absolute fail. The sniped all my elixir and gold storages. The war base was also an absolute fail. They dropped a wall wrecker in the bottom right corner and used freeze spells on The inferno tower and the town hall and Tesla’s. I will never be back here!

  7. Wow the war base looks really good! I think I’m going to give that one a shot. The home village I’m kind of going back and forth. But it is definitely an interesting concept. Do you do this kind of thing often?

  8. I hope I can attach the website because many buildings are very confusing, causing problems in some places, but I don’t know where else is wrong.

  9. Hey man, I’m really a fan of crows base. Can you please search for a crows base exclusively made for th12 by phoenix having 3 infernos? :3 I’d really love that man I’ve been searching for a week found nothing

  10. Hey Tim, In recent clan wars and leagues i’m seeing alot of square bases and due to that we are mostly getting low percentage after getting 2 stars(like 60%-70%). Are there any good square bases and how to counter it?

  11. Your th12 war base was the top base against us last war. Defenses still max 11 level but it was a full max 11 plus….his queen was level 58 already. Anyways, I siege dived thru the eagle with a little funneling to each side so the heroes when inside to the xbows and eagle. Then edrag and looked it from 4:30-6:00. I got a 93% 2 Star. If I had my camps finished, it would have been an easy 3 Star.

  12. I like the new design of the site. It’s looks much better on mobile phones. Also could you please post new builder bases design wich includes new walls. Cheers.

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ Yes I was busy with some major technical issues the past days so got a little behind my publishing schedule, but I will update war weights & bh8 designs plus write a e-drag guide this week for sure πŸ™‚

  13. Nice! Hope you dare to publish my low league th12 farm base, it gives a lot of laughs occassionally:) Looks so easy – that is why even low level attackers jump at it:)
