TH8 Trophy Base Collection

I have received loads of request for TH8 trophy base layouts lately as most Town Hall 8 players want to easily push to Crystal League or even Master League (mainly for the free Gems). Today, I’m going to show you a really nice base from Cybx. This is definitely one of the best layouts that I have seen since the big update!

The Best TH8 Trophy Base Layout

Currently I don’t have any decent TH8 account so I just used my friend’s rushed TH8 account to take the screenshot. Also, please notice that the AS (next to the King) is protecting the Air Defense and the Town Hall.
That’s great If someone can help me take some better screenshot of this TH8 Trophy Base with a decent TH8 village.

How does this TH8 Trophy Base work?

  • Push any TH8 from Silver to Crystal League within hours with the bait Dark Elixir Storage. You can swap it with the Elixir Storage next to the Town Hall If you want.
  • Excellent Tesla Traps. Most of the time, attack drop a Giant/Hog or couples of Barbarians and try to lure the Clan troops outs, the Teslas pop up and they usually stop doing anything for about 10-15 seconds then just start the attack without  luring. Yes, with those 3 Teslas, If the attacker wants to take down all of them, the only way is to drop his kill squad or the main army. This is extremely helpful since most Clan troops can be killed by a double Poison Spell. Also, you know the result when attacker starts a Hog Attack without killing Clan troops, right?
  • Dragon Attacks usually start from the right side (behind the Air Sweeper). With 4 Air Bombs, most of them will be stopped immediately.
  • Centralized Town Hall can prevent attacker from getting the second star with ease.
  • T-Junctions can prevent Wall Breakers from getting more than 1 compartment at a time.



  • This is not Clan War and the attacker just have 30 seconds to scout this TH8 trophy base. During my test, most Dragon attacks come from the East and will get roasted immediately by 4 Air Bombs and the Air Defense as I have mentioned above.
  • All Storages are used as the shield for Air Defenses, also, because of the Air Sweeper, most TH8 attackers don’t want to attack from the West.
  • Attacker can’t snipe the Air Sweeper.
  • If the attackers are not smart, their Dragons always get spread out.


The screenshot below represents the Hog Rider, Giant and Balloon pathing of this TH8 trophy base:


  • Most Hog/Giant Attacks end up a lose. They will be funneled around the defensive ring and get killed by either Spring Traps or Double Giant Bomb.
  • Giant-Healer just can’t work because the centralized AD can easily snipe down all Healers.
  • If this base get attacked by Balloons, most of the time there is still 1 Air Defense left, which can snipe down every single Balloon.


  • Barch and GiBarch can easily take down 30% of the base.
  • Archer Towers and Mortars can cover the whole base, thus, attackers always need to spend more than 30% of his army even he just want to focus on collectors.

Defense Logs

Currently I don’t have many really solid defense logs of this base. That’s great If you can help me test this base.
Also, you can use this base for Clan War. It is definitely one of the best I have ever seen so far but I think the Tesla trick can be easily countered by the second attack.

    • Hey Rizwan,
      Thank you very much for the support! Unfortunately I have just changed something in the base (moved walls and Storage to remove the small hole where Double Giant Bomb is placed).
      That’s great If you can re-take the screenshots (I am so sorry) and upload them to imgur for the best quality.
      Thank you again my friend!

  2. great one! it’s kinda wierd base and it’s really

    a tough business doing that stuff..because these kind of bases aren’t like the symmetrical or the ones with a pattern in them.this one is a irregular base and i really appericiate the work of the creator of this base..looks quite hard to do stuff like this. offense rashid i have been getting a feeling that u r writing a letter

  3. Hey Will Potter !!
    I am on th8. I have done 75% progress on th8. Only upgrades of gold are remaining. And I don’t anything else to do with my elixer except lab upgrades, so it is wasted. What do you guys think, should I upgrade to th9 and use my elixer on walls, and then upgrades the remaining th8 defenses?
    Please let me know 😀
    Your opinion will be appreciated


  4. Honestly I personally think this base is a joke. Maxed th8 except about 40 walls made this base and have been ⭐⭐⭐ each time I have been attacked. I don’t understand how this base is supposed to help me push trophies when all it has done is cause me to lose them.

  5. Will, is it worth trying to push for masters league (in order to get the 5th builder) if my defenses are still th7 level and I am rushing TH9? Or will I just get crushed over and over?

  6. This is an extremely old layout, but I still find it pretty successful. I three starred this in a friendly challenge before, was not easy, and I was impressed at the layout. Teslas stumped me, bu I decided to let my ks Golem tank starting from the bottom tesla and have it works its way up towards the top-left compartment. Good base design 😀
