  1. Pairs you up with a random offline player's village within your Trophy range. View more under Multiplayer Raiding Mechanics. If you have a current shield, you will get a message saying "Shield is active: Attacking will disable your shield, and other players will be able to attack you. Are you sure?" Pressing "Okay" will remove your shield (regardless of whether you actually initiate an attack by deploying troops or casting spells) and take you through to the enemy village.
  2. The cost to find an enemy village to raid. Each different village that you view charges you this price. This cost increases as you upgrade your Town Hall to higher levels.
  3. The amount of Trophies you currently have.
  4. Shows a list of the Clans and players with the highest Trophy count and an option to search for Clans.
  5. The amount of stars you have earned in the Single Player Campaign.
  6. A partially completed level. You are allowed to continue on to subsequent levels, but you have only gained 1 or 2 stars on this level. You may or may not have collected all resources available.
  7. A completed level. You have earned all 3 stars and collected all resources.
  8. An uncompleted level. No stars have been earned, so you cannot proceed to the next level(s).
  9. A locked level. You need to at least partially complete the previous level to unlock (earn at least one star on it).

Raiding Mechanics


Attack warning

Attack Warning

Test your skills against another player! Matchmaking matches you with another player based on your Trophies. Alternatively, you can enter a 'Revenge' match by tapping the Revenge Button button in your Defense Log. This allows you to fight against a person who has attacked you first. Beware of this when you attack higher level villages as they will be able to 'Revenge' match you.

Prior to Battle

When the opposing player's village first appears, you get 30 seconds during which you can scout the enemy's defenses and plan your attack. Although you can deploy troops during this time, the battle will start immediately upon doing so (you do not get extra time by starting early). When viewing another player's village to raid, potential loot and Trophies that can be earned/lost are shown. Before the battle has started, if the village you are first paired up with is not to your liking you can press the 'Next' button to pay a small amount of gold and be shown another village to potentially raid. The 'Next' button disappears once the 3-minute battle timer has started, but if you

haven't actually deployed troops or cast a spell, you can tap 'End Battle' to return to your own village without penalty.

Once you have deployed a troop or cast a spell (even accidentally), the 'End Battle' button is replaced by the 'Surrender' button; pressing that will cause you to immediately lose the battle.

Although once you have earned at least 1 star the 'Surrender' button will once again become the 'End Battle' button, you can click it to end the battle early even before the 3 minutes is up. (A good reason to use this is to save your Heroes before they lose too much health so you can use them again sooner than if you let their health reach 0.)

Victory and Defeat

Trophies are awarded upon a multiplayer victory. Victory is determined by how many stars you earn during the raid. There are three stars available to be earned in each battle:

  • One star is earned for destroying 50% of the buildings.
  • One star is earned for destroying the enemy Town Hall.
  • One star is earned for destroying 100% of the buildings.

For each star that you earn, you receive one-third of the available Trophies. This means that destroying your opponent's Town Hall gives you an automatic victory. It is impossible to get more than one star without destroying the Town Hall. Failure to get any stars means a loss, causing you to lose Trophies.

Gaining and Losing Trophies

There is often a lot confusion surrounding Trophies, as it is often possible to lose a lot more Trophies than you can win (although sometimes the opposite is true as well). The reason for this is simple: If you begin the match with more Trophies than your opponent, it is presumed that your opponent is "weaker" than you (Town Hall or Experience levels are irrelevant for the purposes of this determination). If you defeat this "weaker" opponent you will receive fewer Trophies than you would an "equal" opponent; losing will cost you a higher amount of Trophies. The opposite is also true: If you have fewer Trophies than your opponent, it is presumed that your opponent is "stronger" than you. Defeating this "stronger" opponent entitles you to more Trophies than you would get by defeating an "equal" opponent, and likewise being defeated by a "stronger" opponent costs you fewer Trophies.

There is no hard-and-fast rule, but in general the higher your Trophy count the more difficult opponents you will encounter, both those you are matched with to attack as well as those attacking your village. Because of this, many higher level players keep an artificially low Trophy count by intentionally losing battles; in this way they can both make their villages easier to defend (as they will on average be attacked by weaker opponents) as well as ensure themselves less difficult bases to attack for resources.

Before attacking, pay attention to how many Trophies you can win or lose; often this can help give you a quick indication as to how difficult the upcoming battle will be. If you see a large discrepancy in the number of Trophies available to win vs. the amount available to lose, there is a large Trophy difference between you and your opponent. If the number of Trophies available to win is much higher than that available to lose, you are likely to encounter a difficult battle. If the number available to win is much lower than that available to lose, the battle may in fact be relatively easy. However, do not rely solely on this comparison, as Trophy counts can be easily manipulated (as shown in the above paragraph).

Single Player Campaign

Fight the goblins in the Single Player Campaign! Each level has a preset amount of loot that can only be earned ONCE, however most of the time you will spend more Elixir on troops than you get as a reward. In addition, most of the villages past stage 16 are quite hard, so you'll have to wait until you're much higher level to complete them. Note that no Trophies can be won or lost in the Single Player Campaign and it will not cancel shields.

The lower levels (1-16) usually have no aerial defenses such as Air Defenses or Archer Towers, allowing easy completion with a single Balloon or Minion. Some levels after level 16 can also be easily completed by taking out their aerial defenses first with ground units, and then using a Balloon or Minion to destroy the rest of the village. Note that using a single air unit in this fashion can take quite some time; in fact, often it will take so long that the game will time out due to inactivity, causing the attack to fail (regardless of how many stars you had earned to that point). To prevent this, pan or zoom the screen every so often, or attack with additional units.

Many players find the higher levels in single-player to require more than one try. For these levels, it can be wise to use higher-level troops such as Wizards, Healers, DragonsP.E.K.K.As and/or Dark Elixir Troops to complete the level, which often saves more Elixir than attempting the level mutiple times with cheaper units. That being said, raiding the goblins can be quite lucrative once you progress through the hard levels. In fact, some levels can reward you with Gold and Elixir as much as 800,000 each!

It is interesting to note that while the difficulty of the Single Player Campaign increases quite rapidly as one progresses in level, the available loot rises considerably as well. Resources above 300,000 can be found after the level "Choose Wisely".

Army Planning

Army Planning is one of the most important parts of raiding. If your army is not planned out well enough you are probably going to lose, or earn one star. Depending on your objective (trophies or resources), you'll have to plan your army according to it.

If you're raiding for Trophies or a balance of Trophies or resources, this army configuration is decent for mid-level players (169 housing space required):

If you're specifically farming for resources and don't care at all about Trophies, a typical army might look like the following (180 housing space required):

Armies such as this are able to steal up to 350,000 Gold and Elixir (or more in some cases).



Gold and Elixir can be stolen from four types of Resource Buildings: storages, mines/collectors, the Town Hall, and the Clan Castle (if the opponent has won War Loot from Clan Wars).

Note that all loot, regardless of building type, is subject to the Town Hall level-based loot multiplier (discussed below). This multiplier is applied after all calculations, including the listed caps.

  • Storages: The percentage of Gold/Elixir that can be stolen from storages until TH5 is 20% and is capped at 200,000. Starting at TH6, the percentage that can be stolen drops by 2% at each TH level. At TH7 and above the cap increases by 50k at each TH level. The following chart shows how this works:
Gold/Elixir Storages—Percent Lootable by Town Hall Level
Town Hall Level  % Available to be Stolen Cap Storage Amount to Reach Cap
1-5 20% 200,000 1,000,000
6 18% 200,000 1,111,111
7 16% 250,000 1,562,500
8 14% 300,000 2,142,857
9 12% 350,000 2,916,667
10 10% 400,000 4,000,000

Gold Mines/Elixir Collectors—Percent Lootable by Town Hall Level
Town Hall Level  % Available to be Stolen Cap
All 50% Capacity of Mine/Collector
  • Town Hall: There is an additional 1,000 of both resources that can be stolen inside the Town Hall.
  • Clan Castle: The percentage of War Loot that can be stolen from your Clan Castle is half of the percent for your storages, though unlike storages there is no corresponding cap.

Clan Castle War Loot—Percent Lootable by Town Hall level
1 - 5 6 7 8 9 10
10% 9% 8% 7% 6% 5%

The current maximum loot comes from raiding a TH10 with full collectors and 4M or more in storage.  This means that the maximum calculated loot, for each resource, that can be stolen from 1 opponent is: 400,000 + (7 x 100,000) + 1,000 = 1,101,000. If you add in a full clan castle this maximum can be as high as 1,101,000 + 100,000 = 1,201,000.

These figures are before the loot multiplier is applied. The loot multiplier is what is behind the loot "penalty". The amount of available loot = calculated loot x loot multiplier, and this calculation applies to all loot sources. The loot multiplier is determined as follows:

Town Hall Levels—Loot Multiplier
Town Hall Level Difference Percentage of Loot Available
Same or higher level 100%
1 level lower 90%
2 levels lower 50%
3 levels lower 25%
4 or more levels lower 5%

Dark Elixir

Dark Elixir can be stolen from two types of Resource Buildings: storages and drills.

  • Storages: The percentage of Dark Elixir that can be stolen from the storage until TH8 is 6% and is capped at 2,000. Starting at TH9, the percentage that can be stolen drops by 1% at each TH level and the cap goes up by 500. The following chart shows how this works:

Dark Elixir Storage—Percent Lootable by Town Hall Level
Town Hall Level  % Available to be Stolen Cap Storage Amount to Reach Cap
7 6% 1,200 20,000
8 6% 2,000 33,333
9 5% 2,500 50,000
10 4% 3,000 75,000
  • Drills: The percentage of Dark Elixir that can be stolen from drills is 75% and is capped only by the storage capacity of the drill.

Dark Elixir Drills—Percent Lootable by Town Hall Level
Town Hall Level  % Available to be Stolen Cap
All 75% Capacity of Drill

The current maximum Dark Elixir loot comes from raiding a TH10 with full drills and 75,000 or more in storage. This means that the maximum calculated loot, for Dark Elixir, that can be stolen from 1 opponent is: 3,000 + (3 x 1,350) = 7,050. If you add in a full Clan Castle the maximum can be as high as 7,050 + 500 = 7,550.

The same loot multipliers as with Gold/Elixir apply to Dark Elixir as well.


  • As soon as the three-minute raid timer begins counting down, all Builders and Villagers run towards the Town Hall to hide.
  • Every time you get raided, you will get the notification saying Your village was raided by (Attacker's name)! (assuming you have notifications turned on). It was changed to (Attacker's name) is attacking your village! during the Christmas 2014 Update.
  • Players from up to 200 Trophies above and below you are able to raid you, but these are not hard limits.
  • Following the Christmas 2014 update, it is possible to watch a live attack on your village, if you are able to log on while the attack is in progress.
