I am a TH 7, so I have no experience with these attacks, but I am always looking for different ways of attacking. This was a simple strategy that combines the many benefits of different troops.
This combination seems to address common base problems that we are seeing today–bases that have central air-defenses with ring-shaped outer defenses to protect against hog attacks.
Using the benefits of different troops, Hulkified presents a great way to attack different portions of the base using different troops.
1. The Loon (Balloons):
The Loon is used for taking out every or close to every defense in the outer ring. This is achieved by getting as close to a 1v1 for each defense as possible. This depends on distance and timing but that is a skilled learned from practice. Additionally, the balloons will lure out the cc troops. Average 15-20 balloons.
2. The Wizards (and Archers can be used too with Wizards):
Once the clan castle troops are out of the clan castle, lure the clan castle troops to a place on the base where they can be killed. The wizards are the K in your Killers, they are there to take out clan castle troops and heroes first and foremost, if they survive long enough then they help your hogs clean up the base.
3. The Witch:
The witch is your hero killing tank as well as the clan castle meat shield producer–the skeletons are targets for the clan castle troops. Heroes and CC both have a flaw and that flaw is they only attack one target, CC can attack multiple targets if you do no gather them correctly. So by using that flaw against heroes and CC you can negate their effectiveness. Heroes doing 200 damage a hit can still only kill 1 skeleton at a time, so it negates their high hit-level damage completely.
4. The Hog:
The Hogs job is to take out any of the remaining ring then head for the core. You also need hogs to survive until every hostile defense is killed, as they are your clean up crew. As with any hog attack, heal spells are a necessity and rage can be used as an additional spell.
Pearl 1: Again, this attack will not work on all bases, but is good for some bases as discussed. Additionally, one still should try to identify possible locations of Tesla Towers and, more importantly, Giant Bombs as they will take out your Hogs quickly. It is important to plan your hog attacks in a way that you can avoid the giant bombs altogether, or, when not possible, trigger it with the fewest number of hogs possible. Also, it is best to hit the bomb from the shorter side to trigger one, but not all bombs. Ensure that you pre-heal your hogs prior to them hitting bombs.
Pearl 2: The archer queen can ruin your day quickly. If it is over 10, and really over 15 or even 20, it will take out the hogs quickly!! The hogs look at the archer like a building, not a defense. Therefore, it will take out the closest building and, if one is closer than the queen, it will avoid the Queen. So, be careful!
Pearl 3: As with any attack strategy, you can change your troop composition, just use the principles presented here: (1) Balloons to take out outer defenses; (2) Troops of YOUR choice to take out clan castle troops, help with Archer Queen if possible,. and the surviving troops can help the hogs to destroy the base; and (3) the hogs.
Pearl 4: Clan Castle troops-if someone has hogs that are higher level than yours or even the same, bring them along in your clan castle.
