So I’ve been doing quite a bit of farming lately and after some success at 3-starring in both TH3 and TH4, I decided that I wanted to take the plunge into TH4 Trophy Base design.
For the purposes of this article, we’ll use a standard Town Hall 4 base which has its storages in the corners, surrounded by walls. Our TH4 Trophy Bases will instead have the Town Hall in the center of the base in order to better protect our Town Hall.

This may seem like a counter-intuitive idea, but if you’re able to 3-star (and even 2-star depending on your league) with standard bases then it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll be able to 3-star with a town hall 4 Trophy Base as well. This may not be the most efficient design if you’re farming, but if you do want to take the next step and try out trophy pushing, this will definitely help you make that transition.

I’m going to start off with a base I’ve worked on myself which I think is extremely good for Town Hall 4 trophy base layout. I’ve actually had a ton of success with this base since starting on it about 2 weeks ago, but don’t let that discourage you from tweaking the design to suit your own style.

There are no “perfect” designs that work great in all situations because there are too many differences between each town hall level and league. So this design is best for Town Hall 4 farming players who want to get a trophy base going. I think a lot of TH4 play in the 900-1000 range and once they start pushing trophies, they can do fairly well at it if their defense is good enough.

Let’s take a look at the other bases that worked well for me when I was trying them out. You’ll notice that they all have a lot of compartments so it takes the enemy a while to break into your core, giving you time to get raids lined up or even get back home if your defenses aren’t ready yet. Also note that since the storage units are in the corners (or at least close to the corners) of a base, it makes it easy for your troops to go from storage to storage picking off everything in sight.

One thing you’ll notice is that the elixir storage has been moved into one compartment by itself. In my opinion this is the best place to store elixir, especially when using a TH4 Trophy Base copy link because there is a lot less incentive for the attacker to take it. If you’re going after elixir with a high level troops, they can easily take out one of these storage units in a single shot from their splash damage which will only do 1/4th of its normal damage since it’s not hitting any buildings.

If you look at my base, you’ll notice that the Town Hall is in the center of it and has a set of double Bombs surrounding it. This makes me very happy when I see an low level troop on the enemy’s clash of clans bases (CC) because they won’t make it to my Town Hall and drop off their troops in one piece (even if they do manage to drop down all of their troops, they’ll have a long time to wait for them all to physically walk over 3 Giant Bombs).
Since the Town Hall is in the center of my Trophy Base, I use a set of double Giant Bombs in front of it instead of the regular style that you’d see in a farming base. We’ll discuss this in greater detail when we go over decoration setups.

The gold and elixir storages are in the corner of my base with the double archer towers around them to make it hard for attackers to get through them quickly which will give you time to respond if your main defense aren’t ready yet.
Also, the archer towers are close enough together so they’ll be able to support each other with their arrows.
The mortars are placed in the center of my base so that they can protect two rows of buildings at once instead of only being able to get one row if you place them on the perimeter of a base. You’ll notice that there are single Giant Bombs around these mortar, but why aren’t there any around the loot buildings like we see in other farming bases?

Since both of my cannons are targeting one defense to take out, they will end up firing on the other defenses nearby after that first defense is destroyed. This usually takes out or severely damages another defense which will then be taken care of by either.
