How to 3 star EVERY TH9 The Hogs are back, with Golems

Our high TH8s and TH9s have had trouble with TH9s–with good reason. They are really tough. Rarely, we encounter a clan that has tough TH9s that are able to destroy our TH9s. This is not common, and the successful ones are likely using xmod and practicing attacks. This has become more and more common, especially with overseas clans. Rarely, we just get matched with a great clan.

We have always tried different strategies against the maxed TH8s and TH9s with no consistent 3 star success. Once I saw a clan 3 star every TH9 with GoHo. Here is how to do it.

One thing that is clear using any ground attack:

1. kill the cc troops; and

2. kill the Queen.

Period.

With hogs, you must know where the giant bombs are and, especially, any double giant bomb sets (when 2 giant bombs are next to each other).

The cc troops can mess up any ground attack. A high level Queen can be rip through hordes of hogs super fast and even one wizard not killed from the cc will wipe out all of one’s hogs.

Are high level Hogs back in? You bet they are!!! Before the giant bomb upgrade, they would destroy almost every TH8 and 9 base, easily. Watch this youtube video, although it is a TH10 attacking, and see a different strategy using hogs that relies on Golem, PEKKA, balloons, and, of course, many hogs, in addition to other troops. But the basic premise is Hogs and Golems with other troops to destroy the cc and Queen.

What’s the key to this attack? Let’s simplify the attack in steps.

  1. Kill the cc troops. Lure them out, and use whatever your preference is as a kill squad–witch(es) and wizards, wizards and archers, etc.
    1. Kill the Queen. If you kill the queen, you will likely 3 star the base. Figure out what you need to do to get to her as easily as possible with the fewest number of troops. If only a few wallbreakers will do it, then use em. If not, use a jump spell. Use Golem to get queen to attack. Use your Royals (King and/or Queen) to kill the Queen. It is a huge benefit if you can get the xbows to attack the golem while your hogs do them in.
  2. Hogs:
    1. Do not release them all in one place. Use at least a two finger drop.
    2. Avoid going across two giant bombs (when together), trip them, or path your hogs around them.

This attack used 30 Level 5 hogriders, 1 PEKKA, 1 Golem, 4 balloons, 7 wizards, 7 barbs, 7 archers, 4 wallbreakers, 3 heal and 2 rage spells.

Yes this is a TH10 versus 9.  No big deal, right? I agree. But, will it work for TH9-versus-TH9.

————————————————————-

TH8 versus TH9.  Hogriders x 20, Golem x 2, ….  Hogriders are still the king.

BONUS: TH10 attack

Try this one out – TH9 versus TH10  Lavahound with Balloons. Interesting combo that seems to work. Lavahounds seem to get the balloons going around and then to center.

    • For NEW TH9, your attack strategy would be the same as against another TH8. The more upgrades that are made to the TH9, the more difficult it is to destroy the base. In fact, it becomes impossible to get 100% destruction of a TH9 once there are well-placed upgrades–additional air defense, archer tower, etc.
