Don't you hate getting attacked? Your trophies are at risk, and so are your resources! Well, I'm going to show you how you can not only defend better, but also get attacked less!

Upgrading

So, to keep people from attacking you, you have to intimidate them. And the greatest way to do so is upgrade your defenses. Here they are, top being the most important, bottom being the least.

  • Walls. Upgrade your walls day in and day out. By just seeing the colour of your walls, the attacker can determine whether he should attack or not.

    the most important defense!!!

  • Mortars. The mortar is by far one of the most important defenses in the game. It has a very long range, plus a good amount of splash. A similar level mortar can one-shot any similar level archer, and because of its splash, multiple.
  • Wizard Towers. The high splash against barbs/archers/goblins/balloons/wizards/minions/hogs/ skeletons makes the Wizard Tower "The Ultimate Arcane Defense", as said on the wiki.
  • Air Defense: I had a hard time debating Wizard Towers and Air Defense, but Wizard Towers are slightly more useful. The Air Defense has an excellent range, and a very high damage output. The only problem is that it cannot attack ground troops.
  • Archer Towers and Cannons: These will not intimidate attackers as much, unless they're using P.E.K.K.A's and Dragons, or fewer in number high health troops.

No More Loot!

I know it sounds crazy, but you should not have a lot of loot. The most important thing players are looking for is loot. Never have a lot of loot with you. Use gold on walls and elixir on laboratory upgrades or hide it by queuing up your barracks with Dragons or Wall Breakers, Dragons being the better choice. Make sure you have a full army camp when you do this. When you come back online, just unque all the Dragons/Wall Breakers. This can also be done with Dark Barracks.

Your Placement

Placement is the most important thing for Defense. If you are farming,

  • Place your Town Hall outside.
  • Place your Clan Castle in the middle.
  • Place your storages all the way inside (in different compartments).
  • Place your mortars all the way inside (in different compartments).
  • Place your Air Defenses in the 2nd layer of walls (in different compartments).
  • Place your Wizard Towers in the 1st layer of walls close to your storages to take down goblins (in different compartments).
  • Place your Cannons/Archer Towers in the 1st Layer of walls (in different compartments).
  • Pace your teslas either in the 1st layer of walls, or protecting mortars/storages.
  • Place your collectors outside (unless you don't play often).
  • Place Barracks/Spell Factory/Dark Barracks/Lab/Builder's Huts outside.

No pockets should have more than 3 buildings!

If you are hybrid,

  • Place your Town Hall inside.
  • Place your Clan Castle in the middle.
  • Place your storages all the way inside (in different compartments).
  • Place your mortars all the way inside (in different compartments).
  • Place your Air Defenses in the 2nd layer of walls (in dfferent compartments).
  • Place your Wizard Towers in the 1st layer of walls close to your storages to take down goblins (in different compartments).
  • Place your Cannons/Archer Towers in the 1st Layer of walls (in different compartments).
  • Place your teslas either in the 1st layer of walls, or protecting mortars/storages.
  • Place your collectors outside (unless you don't play often).
  • Place Barracks/Spell Factory/Dark Barracks/Lab/Builder's Huts outside.

​No pockets should have more than 3 buildings!

If you want to trophy push, though,

  • Place your Town Hall all the way in the middle.
  • Place your Clan Castle in the middle.
  • Place your storages OUTSIDE!
  • Place your mortars all the way inside (in different compartments).
  • Place your Air Defenses in the 2nd layer of walls (in different compartments).
  • Place your Wizard Towers in the 1st layer of walls close to your storages to take down goblins (in different compartments).
  • Place your Cannons/Archer Towers in the 1st Layer of walls (in different compartments).
  • Pace your teslas either in the 1st layer of walls, or protecting mortars/storages.
  • Place your collectors outside.
  • Place Barracks/Spell Factory/Dark Barracks/Lab/Builder's Huts outside.

​No pockets should have more than 2 buildings!
