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.
In this attack strategy you will mainly use dragons as main destructive force! This attack is great especially for low-level Town Halls!
Many people think that the base is not that important in Clan Wars because you have 2 attacks but only 1 base – so you can get 6 Stars by only losing 3 Stars.
If you read carefully and remember the point I have mentioned below, I assure you that you can avoid some of the most common mistakes many new players make in the beginning.
