What Is Farming?
Town Hall farms are usually found on low-level maps with few players online at any given time. The goal is to gain resources from attacking other players’ villages before they can attack yours. You must keep an eye out for enemy attacks when you see villagers running outside their village walls because if you don’t stop them, they might steal all your resources! If you’ve played Clash of Clans before, you know what I’m talking about.
The main thing you need to do is build up your village defenses first. Then you can focus on building up your village’s base instead of spending all your energy on your defenses. Try using the following tips and tricks to ensure you win every battle against another player.
How To Farm
You want to use the following three types of farms: Resource Collectors, Troop Farmers, and Trophy Hunters.
These farms collect gold and elixir. Gold is used to upgrade buildings, and elixir is used to buy troops and spells. The best way to make these farms is to place them next to the village entrance. This way, you won’t waste too much time traveling back and forth between the farm and the village.
Also, placing the farm near the village gives you easy access to your village defense structures while still making enough room for additional units.
Don’t forget to protect your crops with walls and traps. Place your crop fields close together so that attackers cannot destroy multiple plants simultaneously. Also, plant the crops inside your walls. It doesn’t matter if there isn’t enough room left after planting the crops.
Some players like to leave one row open just in case they run into someone with better defenses than them.
Troop farmers produce troops automatically. They also require less maintenance compared to normal farms. The best places to put these farms are along the edges of the map since this makes it easier to defend yourself against attacks coming from the sides.
Place your troop farms far away from each other so invaders can’t pick off several troops. Keep in mind that if you let your troops die too quickly, you won’t be able to replace them very easily.
Trophy hunters kill enemy players and steal their trophies. These types of farms aren’t really necessary unless you’re playing the game’s late stages. To maximize the money you earn from trophy hunting, you need to spend as little as possible on your defenses. This is why you shouldn’t bother training expensive troops that take up tons of space.
Placing your trophy hunter farms on top of hills allows you to spot incoming enemies sooner. But remember that hilltops are often targeted by powerful spells such as Fireball or Lightning Bolt. So always check your surroundings carefully before deciding where to place your trophy hunter farms.
Tips & Tricks
Here are a few things you should consider doing when starting a successful Town Hall farm.
Build Up Your Village Defense First
Your priority should be building up your village defenses. This includes Walls, Traps, Mortars, and Cannons. Once you have a good defense setup, you can focus on building your own base without worrying about getting attacked.
Use Cheap Troops
Tier One Troops, such as Barbarians and Goblins, are the best troops to use when farming. Try not to use expensive troops such as Archers or Wizards because you won’t be able to afford many of them. And don’t worry about having lots of troops. You only need a small number of strong soldiers to defeat most opponents.
Be Careful With Your Troops
If you send out weak troops such as Barbarians, then you risk losing those troops to enemy attacks. So make sure to deploy your troops wisely. For example, if you notice that your opponent has a lot of Barbarians but no Wizards, you should probably send out your Barbarians immediately.
On the other hand, if you and your opponent have Barbarians and Wizards, wait until you find a chance to sneak behind your opponent’s base and wipe out his Wizards.
Don’t Get Attacked By Stronger Players
You don’t want to play against stronger players because they can overwhelm you with superior numbers. So whenever you encounter a stronger player, avoid him and move on to another village. After a while, he will give up on trying to fight you and go somewhere else.
That covers everything you need to know about farming. Remember that farming is essential to winning games in the game’s early stages. Make sure to follow these guidelines to ensure victory in future encounters.
