Ladies and Gents,
Offense is preposterously op at th9 and below. The loon change makes almost any th9 simply pentable, is that a word?
We are having essentially total success against any th9 or 9.5, anything that isn't a built up th10, with a really really dumb attack strategy. Its a penta-loon, but you burn 1 hound and a few loons as a "lure squad", basically you send in X loons and 1 hound, almost always the CC hound (the level 4), with a goal of luring the CC, maybe triggering some traps, and killing some defenses and 1 air D.
This creates nice pathing for the quad-hound attack to follow, you simply burn the royals to kill the CC troops (and 5 archers) and then carry on with the rest of it. The queen is simply ignored, even if level 30+, if you can get good pathing and an air D, and a few defenses, the queen just eventually dies somehow. Its sloppy, it wouldn't make jaek from juanhives channel as a super pretty raid, and it essentially never fails. Loons are so op, you end a raid typically with so many up, eventually they just bomb her and thats that. Or pups, or loon drops, or god knows what, sometimes shes still alive as the 3 star is registered. But to deal with her does require those 5 hounds, 4 + the cc hound for the lure squad.
I'll say our success rate on max d th9s or 9.5s is 90% or better with this strategy.
