    Hound def cc too strong?

    Since sc has tweaked ice golem differently for defence, can they tweak it for hound? Almost 90% of def cc contains a hound.... cuz itís significantly better than other options.

    i know there are ways to handle hound cc but isnít it boring if every cc is hound? Just like ice golem last time.

    I'm sorry your queen walk was affected. That seems to be the only attack that a hound is "best" against.

    It might be boring if it were the case, but it simply isn't.

    In Legends, double dragons are much more common, loons are as common, witches + baby drag are probably more common than hounds.

    And I see a similar sort of mixture in war.

    All cc can be annoying against the wrong army for it, or lack of planning. It is what it is. I don't think having a hound vs something else costs me 3 stars any more than other cc compositions.

    What kind of attack do you use?
    when ever i see a hound i love it, pretty much a guaranteed 3

    step your QW game up is my only advice

    For th12 hound is most definitely the most used defensive cc by a country mile.
    In our last two wars .. against champ 2 cwl clans where we run 20-25 th12s. There has been 0 th12s without a hound... 0. Iím not joking. Itís not just queen walk it affects.. its a lot of attacks. In attacks where you are doing a charge with a killsquad it spectates the queen from the main party. And most of the time it results in the queen going sideways or hitting walls. From my experience since last cwl hounds are taking up at least 80% of war defensive ccs atm

    See no way to compare the old ice golem ccs and hounds now. Ice gollies could kill an attack, the hound is just a nuisance that might tie up a queen long enough to thwart the 3. Hounds are fine and honestly can’t remember the last time I saw one ruin an attack.

    I wouldn't say hounds are best defense. They are horrible against air units unless they are attracted by heroes (except air mode warden). I usually farm and use war atk using electro + loons + gw air mode when facing CC castle, and i deploy my king and queen later when castle is destroyed to ensure no hound/ice golem disturbing my main army.

    Hound is generally the best defensive CC for turning a potential 3* attack into a 2*. Other high-dps CC like witches, baby drags, loons, etc. are more likely to turn an attack into a 1* but are more easily dispatched by skilled attackers and can leave the base vulnerable. That is why you see hounds so much in live streams, champion league, and the like. In legends league, especially lower legends, I see few hounds because people are defending against the 2*.

    TLDR no, the hound is not too powerful as a defensive CC, but I agree it fills a specific niche for which it is generally regarded as the best. It turns out this niche is highly visible in esports.
