Watch our clan war gameplays, I upload it everyday on YouTube and live stream on Facebook.
The Clan Castle is the most central building in Clash of Clans – not that big of a surprise if you have look at the name of the game Clash of Clans. It’s your most powerful defensive building when centralized and filled with the correct troops, and it’s also a huge support when you attack and have a Dragon and 10 Archers in it. In this post, I will show you how you can maximize the power by using your Clan Castle the right way.
Have you ever asked yourself in which order your troops will leave the Clan Castle when someone is attacking your base? Let’s imagine your Clan Castle is in the middle and there is almost no good space to pull out your Clan Castle troops, and your attacker has to use single Hog Riders to trigger the Clan Castle. He/she will not deploy many of them. As soon as the first Archers get out of the Clan Castle he/she will use their Lightning Spell to kill your troops and then start the mass Hog Rider deployment and the main attack… and suddenly there comes out a Dragon. Someone is biting their device while the Hog Riders bite the dust. The troops are always released in the order they are in your Barracks (Barbarians, Archer, Goblins, etc.) so always watch to see if you get all of them outside to see what you have to deal with. Here is a scene from a recent Clan War and a quite frustrated clan member of mine after he killed the Archers and faced a P.E.K.K.A:
By the way, see here some good posts about how to pull the Clan Castle troops the right way and how to prevent that someone can pull them easily by placing your outside buildings the right way.
Have Useful Troops Inside
I know most of you know what’s coming now, but maybe this helps those who didn’t know. If someone donates troops in your Clan Castle to defend in a Clan War and you don’t want in there, you can easily remove them by releasing them. What if you have them in your Clan Castle of your normal base and you simply don’t want to use them in your next attack? There is no release feature to get rid of them. You could attack someone and just deploy the Clan Castle but this will loose your trophies or break your shield – no useful solution. What you can do is simply go to the Single Player map and choose one map there and just deploy the Clan Castle there – this works for Spells as well or maybe for some troops you trained by accident (for example you wanted to hide your Elixir and forgot to un-train them).
The advantage of doing this is that you will not lose trophies and the best one is that the Single Player levels don’t break your shield.
