Anti Giant Base Designs and Tactics

Author:Clash of Clans Gems Release time:2015/11/7 11:16:48 hits:404

 For several regions you will see Giant and Healer attacks all the time. Are you frustrated that they always seem to cut through your defense like a hot knife through a piece of butter? In this post I will help you with showing how the Giant based attacks work, what they rely on and in the last step how you can harden your base against them – little bonus in the end, some working base designs for farming base, war base and trophy base you can rebuild. Finally have a Anti Giant Base that works!

How to defend against Giant attacks?

In order to answer that question we need to start a little more from the beginning. Lets have a look how Giant based attacks work, to completely understand the mechanic behind it and afterwards we can look at several ways to defeat them. If you understand how something works it’s better than simply using the antidote without understanding it. There are some up and running base design in the end of the post, but please start with reading the next chapters first :) simple smile

How Giant attacks work

In general this is quite easy, no matter that there are different kind of compositions used. Some support the Giants with Archers, others with Wizards, Goblins and much more. I can break it down to 1 single purpose how all of them work:

  1. Giants cover damage and target the defenses
  2. Other Troops stay behind them and deal damage, the Defenses target the Giants primary, too
  3. Optional: Wall Breakers open the Walls, Healer(s) keep the Giants longer alive

 

That’s how all of them work and it’s important to understand – now we can reduce that attacking strategy to some simple mechanics. You can only defend what you understand – that’s very important for building an anti Giant Base.

Grouping up Giants before funneling them into Spring Traps

Their AI makes it quite easy to make them group up. When they get deployed they all walk toward the next Defense in their range. Normally they get deployed 1 by 1, finger tab by finger tab, so they are not grouped up, they’re in a row

Now we need a Defense they can gather together at. Yes, that’s right – we need to sacrifice a Defense. That’s the Defense they will all walk to and destroy first. When the Defense is down, the Giants are packed together and read to walk through our Spring Trap funnel and will get blown up together. Now we have a Spring Trap that is able to blow up a crucial part of the Giants and with 2 of them you can count out half of the attackers Giants quickly.

Example setup for great Giant funnels

Here are some examples that show you great setups that are very effective against Giants. Please mind that those aren’t the only possible setups, you can also create your own and quickly see results. The funneled Walls are very effective, but also very obvious and experienced attackers can see them and don’t walk into it.

funneling giants anti giant trap funnelEither way the Giant take on the Archer Tower or one of Cannons – depending on the spot where they get deployed. After that they will walk through the only “open” part, where the Spring Trap is. This setup will take out 3 Giants at once per Spring Trap, at least.

The last one is grouping the Giants with the Hidden Tesla and then routing the Giants around the Wall corner to a nice Trap party.

Distract Giants to make them walk weird routes

Path of the Giants are easy to predict – they always walk toward the next Defense from the point they are right now. As long as there are no Walls in between, that’s called the path of the lowest resistance. Great Example here:

funnel giants with walls giant walking towards Mortar

They will go toward the Mortar, even the Other Defenses are the nearest targets. Lets shortly remind that Giant based attacks want the Giants as tanks while the other troops deal the damage. To destroy a base your troops need to go to the core of the base as soon as possible, so the best way to defend is keeping troops away from the core. You want to:

  • Split troops and Giants up so the damage dealer can get killed away from the Giants

To achieve this you need the Giants walk in a ring around your core, while other troops target other buildings. We just talked that Giants try to prevent Walls and Archers and Wizards can shoot over them. I think you got my point – sooner or later the Giants will follow the route around your core while the other troops try to get into the core (and hopefully get wiped out by trying).

In this picture we can see very good how this could look like. and outside ring will always keep the Giants attracted and sooner or later split them up from the other troops:

Defend the Healers

Healer are keeping the Giants alive and as long as they’re alive you’re almost unable to do something against the Giants. When someone uses Giants and Healer together you can see always the same protocol used:
