So, you have waited patiently for your upgrades. You have all the fancy new structures and units in your little village. You're a newly minted soldier straight out of the academy. Now what?

Hearthstone's Second Expansion Rumors And Speculation

The most powerful weapons are little more than toys in the hands of those who do not know how to wield them. I wouldn't trust a baby with the nuclear football, and I certainly wouldn't trust myself to know what the hell I was doing in Clash of Clans. Thankfully, Youtube personality Galadon from the Lost Phoenix clan is here to help us out.

He recently released a two part video instructional for those of you who have painstakingly waited for your level 9 town hall.

The first video, shown below, demonstrates several base layouts. It's a reminder that it does take two to tango in a clash, and defense is as important as a good offense. He would also like to make it perfectly clear that the Hidden Teslas are awesome and you should probably invest in getting those upgraded to level 7. They're the most powerful defensive structure in the game and well worth the time and effort.

Base set up becomes a game of inches. He emphasizes that you do not want any dead zones in your tower deployment. Make sure every inch is covered to its maximum effect. Often, battles are won and lost on a razor margin and switching the placement of one tower could be the difference between a 1 or 2 star outcome. And as always, get your heroes up to level 30, it's one of the many perks of having Town Hall 9.

The second video focuses on the offensive end of Town Hall level 9. The first video analyzes a GoWiPe raid (Golems, Wizards, P.E.K.K.A), the equivalent to sending in the SEALS for every mission ever.

The most enlightening part of the videos (though no less entertaining) is when Galadon pauses the action to take a look at unit comparisons. He examines the pros and cons between Golems and Giants, and how the one may be better than the other in certain instances. That's the key difference between a good Clasher and a great Clasher: knowing the strengths and weaknesses of every unit and their relationship to one another.

You don't need to Zerg everything, in other words. Sometimes, a little finesse is all it takes.

Check out the second video below.
