    Personally i always upgrade heaviest defences first.

    At th13 i am doing eagle, infernos, scattershots, xbows first. They all offer great value in terms of both damage and hitpoints.

    get stronger as quick as you can

    war weight to me is irrelevant.

    If you do war my general rules is get/upgrade the defence when you can three star a base with similar strength. So once you can three star an eagle th11 you get the eagle.

    Until 2 years ago I always set the new defences and max them as late as possible. I then always first maxed out the old defences, so the lab could be maxed out my war troops. This is de well known x.5 TH theory, because you could handle the war weight of your base.

    Since 2 years I really don't care war weight, just because you can have the power potions and the big heavy and new defences gives the most defence value. It's also the oppo who need to attack your base. Defence is as important as attacking is.

    So on my TH 13 I maxed the eagle, scattershots, giga inferno and inferno's first. Then I go for xbows, air defence, wizz towers and cannons. I also decided for the very first time to max my traps as last, something I never did before. But I like my strategy a lot.

    This is an excellent "cliffs notes" version.

    I would add, perhaps you should check with your clan's leadership to see if they have a preference. Which of these would benefit the clan more?

    CWL player then drop it first. Hammer/book it to max asap since in CWL there is no war weight.

    I agree with others that your position in regular wars can make a difference. If you're at the top, upgrading the Eagle might bring weight that others wouldn't be able to clean up easily. If you're at the bottom that weight shouldn't make too much of a difference for your clan as a whole.

    One other thing to consider is how competitive your clan is about regular wars. If your clan is really strict and has weight restrictions even if you're near the bottom you may want to check with clan leadership on when they'd want you to drop the Eagle. If your clan is more laid back then adding the Eagle early would be an option and would also help in CWL and holding onto loot in multiplayer.

    There are a lot of clan situations that could allow for different upgrade paths to be the ideal one. However, in the end it mostly comes down to your own personal preference. If you feel like the defensive power the Eagle provides is of more benefit than the weight it brings (regular war considerations only) then add it. Otherwise leave it until you get to that point. For CWL and multiplayer it'll always be a benefit, so it's only in regular wars where you'd want to consider waiting to drop the Eagle (or any other defense for that matter).

    A lot of players can not 3* a proper th11 with ea as a th11, so they should never has an ea?

    If youíre more of a Clan Wars player: ďIf you canít three it, donít build it.Ē
    If you prefer farming and/or Clan War Leagues: Definitely build it and max it quickly. There is no weight in Clan War Leagues, so get both your offense and your defense upgraded as high and as quickly as possible.

    I would upgrade your heavy defenses first either way then. It won’t cause much (if any) of a difference in which clans your clan matches up against.
