On this page of our guide, we will show you our recommended base layout for Town Hall 9 in Clash of Clans. The layout is optimized for protecting your resources and trophies from an attacking player.
The December 2015 update brought two major changes that impact base layouts for everyone. The first major change is that the Town Hall will no longer give you a shield if it’s destroyed in combat and the second is that the Town Hall gives an attacking player significantly more loot when it’s destroyed. As a result, you’ll now need to protect the building rather than placing it outside of your base for a free shield.
TH9 Base Layout
TH9 Base Summary
The Air Sweeper buildings in the center of your base should be pointing to the North and to the South. This will provide coverage to your northern and southern Air Defense towers.
This base layout is great at defending against Hogs. The base is designed to funnel the Hogs around the outer ring of the base. An attacking player must be very careful where they attack because there are 4 potential double Giant Bomb locations. Double Giant Bombs can wipe out an entire Hog army at once.
There are also a lot of choke points in the base which will force an attacker’s troops to get bunched up. When the troops are grouped up in tight areas they’ll be weak to your Mortars and Wizard Towers.
The X-Bow which is a new tower at this level is strategically placed in the center of the base. The tower’s attack radius covers most of the base which gives them more damage over the course of an attack.
