Thread: The Mask- An Intricate Anti-Hog TH9 Farming Design Created to Protect Gold

  1. #1

    Thumbs Up The Mask- An Intricate Anti-Hog TH9 Farming Design Created to Protect Gold

    From the creator of The Eclipse, and the same clan that has created "The Shield" by Mitch and "The Tsunami" by SHAUIV, I present to you, The Mask.

    My Goal in building The Mask: Construct a farming base that can be used in the latter stages of TH9 that is durable against hogs, but most importantly, sturdy against tier one troops (Barbarians, Archers, Minions). I do not want ANYONE to come near my gold or precious dark elixir, so I exposed my elixir in exchange for free shields.


    The Mask


    Pros of The Mask:

    -Disguised Hog Ring which surprises enemy hoggers
    -Excellent Wizard Tower placement to ensure a goblin genocide
    -Centralized Dark Elixir and Clan Castle
    -Calculated Funneling prevents troops from targeting the gold storages
    -Each gold storage is in its own compartment
    -Giant Bombs strategically placed to murder groups of archers
    -Confusing layout to attack; most settle for town hall only

    Cons of The Mask:

    -Mortar placement is not ideal
    -Clan Castle is lurable...although it is very hard to do so
    -Heroes are lurable (but aren't they always?)
    -Not a transformer base. There is no trophy version



    ***NOTE*** Elixir Storages can be swapped with the gold mines in the core. Personally, I have finished all of the possible elixir upgrades available at TH9 (yes, including the lab) so it is useless except for cooking troops and spells

    Clan Castle- Not as bad as it looks, eh?




    Hog Ring- Hard to notice at first, but that is a good thing.




    Defenses and traps- Again, very easy to see the path that hog riders take




    Traps only- For those who are copying the base




    Walls only- Sexy right?




    Defense Logs- As you can see, this base guarantees protection of your precious gold. In the defense below, the hogs barely touched my core and came nowhere near stealing my precious gold and dark elixir

    Attack Number 1: Hogs went around the base and only 2 hogs killed one wizard tower. He followed with his tier 1 troops which were shot down quickly by the xbow. Lastly came his BK which also got shot down before even touching my gold storages. All gold stolen came from my mines

    Attack Number 2: This guy was a good attacker and came from the bottom with his giants & wall breakers first. He followed with his healers & his hogs and kept quickly sending in gobs & archers to get the storages while the wiz towers and bows were busy. After his hogs, healers, and giants died, his archers proceeded to take 1 gold storage and get a few touches on another. They didn't touch my Dark Elixir at all! Again, I don't care about elixir, but still he managed to get 2 storages. Overall a good attacker but The Mask held strong

    The Third Attack: Hogs came from the right side of my base and continued around towards the bottom right just like I would hope. He followed with all of his power troops (quite the line up) and sadly my wizard tower kept shooting the witch's skeletons so the wizards shot it down. The drag got some work done and took part of one gold storage before an AD shot it down. Finally he sent the queen in and she shot through the wall of my center compartment and her and some whizzes got 50% of my dark elixir storage (2000 available, 800 stolen)

The ring would surely throw off less experienced players or those who use armies with mismatch compositions. The elixir storages may encourage a snipe and or weak barch/bam raid. Also the layout appears to be handy at redirecting troops which could throw an attack into disarray...In any case you have inspired me to give it a whirl and makes a change from the typical square core or blatant anti hog setups.

    -Yes, I am also looking for spaces with double giant bombs

    -Lastly, just to repeat myself: ***NOTE*** Elixir Storages can be swapped with the gold mines in the core. Personally, I have finished all of the possible elixir upgrades available at TH9 (yes, including the lab) so it is useless to me except for cooking troops and spells

    -I am terribly sorry for the lack of strong defensive logs. More are coming soon!

    -If you have any comments or criticism about The Mask, then please feel free to comment and I'll be happy to reply

    -Thank you for your time -Doolabh

    Hey, brownsugar,
    i saw this base on the glassboard base deisgner thingy and fell in love with it.
    It took me a while to find the hog ring, lol.
    I will most likely make a th8 version of this, just until im th9.

    It looks very good, but it looks like the wizard towers screw up the antihog ring. And the air defenses are very exposed, but I like the cc radius though
