    Dearest Forum War Specialists - Help me help a member with this war strategy

    One of our members has asked for help regarding his war tactics

    In the past, you kind fellas have helped me with my blundering war attacks, and in that spirit, I ask you to take a gander at this one from our member Old Guys Rule --> link to video https://youtu.be/swiUhHuX9NI

    In addition, here's a pic of the base


    I've done as best I could with my take on reviewing the attack, but (as per the norm) I'm sure I've left out some things that may help this fella return to his 3 starring days of glory. Any comments posted here will be relayed directly and I'll post an update on his progress after having received feedback.

    one thing to bear in mind for this particular war - was that there was no access to th10+ troops (so you can reschedule bowling)

    Thanks in advance from myself and our member, Old Guys Rule

    That base is The Tailor. It's hog heaven. Usually it has 1 gb in each corner and you can send a KS to 1 corner with a jump over the tesla, and then a team of hogs plus a heal to each other corner. He seems to have modified most of the corners so that there can't be a gb there at all - which makes it even easier for hogs

    Onyx, you continue to provide forum gold on the regular.

    Yes, given the layout, it seems very welcoming to hogs. Not sure if this member has max hogs yet. I'll have to check.

    I mentioned the idea of googling the base. But to my mind the best way to do that is to use a screenshot and reverse image search. Do you know a faster way?

    It's a very popular base, presumably because it takes a bit of effort to get to each compartment and therefore protects gold/elixir.

    Its main weakness is that it is very easy to take out the core. Attack any corner with giants or golem and wiz, plus a heal spell. A jump spell over the corner (hidden tesla at each corner) will take following troops (valks are best) straight into the core. Rage the core and then use hogs plus heal to finish up

    Looks like the cc troops are easy to lure, hog at 11 o'clock to the archer tower

    Another vote for hogs. Base should be named "Introductory Surgical Hogging". Kill squad can be single gol+wiz, two gol, gol bowlers, even valks. If heroes are low two gols + wiz is the safest. Easy funnel, break into a corner, jump to mid.

    If you have access to bowlers, HGHB absolutely crushes that base. I've done it about a million times.
    Go in from 3 o'clock into the queen and your done.

    Also pretty easy to GoLaLoon - send KS into compartment nearest the AQ, jump into core as suggested, and use 2 hounds and loons to clean up in the normal circular manner (both hounds deployed from different angles to soak up air bombs and reinforce loons as they go around the base). Rage or heal kill squad, rage and/or haste loons around the base.

    As Onyx stated, the base is called 'The Tailor'.
    Famous anti 2 star (central TH) bases were named by the community, such as the General, V-Moat, Four Corners etc etc

    When researching how to attack these bases, when I was TH9, I used to Google/Youtube Search "Clash of Clans Internet bases"
    Often, images of these bases came up etc, which is how I got to recognise their names.

    For the record, I used to GoVaLo this base, with 2 jump spells, and about 8 Loons for the back end once the 4 Air defences were destroyed.

    Skrags, OnyxDS - always a pleasure. regarding finding this bases on YouTube - probably the reverse image search is the most time effective way of doing it. But anytime put into base breakdowns and whatnot is always good

    by the way - did you gents see anything else glaring out at you that i missed in my debriefing?

    Hawker - Your approach is somewhat akin to what I suggested in the video

    FYI gents - i checked - his hogs are still not up to snuff. as far as war troops go - he's currently limited to laloon or golaloon (growing pains)
