Whether you’re a Town Hall 2 beginner or a Town Hall 15 player, these easy-to-understand strategies will help you secure those coveted 3 stars without breaking a sweat.
Let’s check them in detail for each Town Hall level.
Town Hall 2: Giants, Barbarians, and Archers (30 Housing Space)
Starting small with Town Hall 2, where you only have 30 housing space, we recommend using three Giants, ten Barbarians, and five Archers. Getting your Clan Castle is crucial, as enemy Clan Castle troops can complicate things. The strategy involves distracting defenses with Giants, using Barbarians and Archers to eliminate them. Patience is key with this low-level troop strategy.
Town Hall 3: Giants, Archers, and Wall Breakers
Moving up to Town Hall 3, we stick to a similar strategy with 10 Giants, 14 Archers, and three Wall Breakers. Create a distraction with Giants, use Archers to eliminate Clan Castle troops, and focus on the mortar. The key is adapting to the base layout, and deciding whether to attack from the edge or the center.
Town Hall 4: Unleashing the Balloons
At Town Hall 4, unlock the powerful Balloons. Use 12 Balloons, 18 Archers, and two Goblins. While Clan Castle troops are optional, bringing Balloons in the Clan Castle can be effective. The strategy involves targeting air defenses, Archer Towers, and cleanup troops for a smooth three-star victory.
Town Hall 5: Mass Loons
Unlocking the Mass Loons strategy at Town Hall 5, this army composition requires the use of many Balloons. Whether or not you have a Clan Castle, this powerful army can easily three-star bases. Lure out Clan Castle troops, deploy Balloons strategically on air defenses and Archer Towers, and finish with cleanup troops.
Town Hall 6: Giant-Balloon Army
For Town Hall 6, we recommend a Giant-Balloon army that can be effective even without a Clan Castle. However, for war attacks, additional Balloons or a Dragon in the Clan Castle can enhance the strategy. Focus on luring out the Clan Castle, then deploy Giants and Balloons strategically to secure the three stars.
Town Hall 7: Unleash the Dragons
Town Hall 7 introduces Dragons to your arsenal. A full army of Dragons, supported by Lightning spells and some Balloons in the Clan Castle, makes for an easy three-star attack. Look for grouped defenses, zap them, and deploy the Dragons strategically to dominate the base.
Town Hall 8: GoHo (Golems and Hogs)
Transitioning to Town Hall 8, the GoHo strategy involves Golems, Hogs, and Clan Castle troops, making it a potent and straightforward attack. Create a funnel, lure out the Clan Castle, and unleash the power of Hogs with healing spells for a clean sweep.
Town Hall 9: Zap Lalo (Zap Spells and LavaLoon)
At Town Hall 9, the Zap Lalo strategy combines Lightning spells and LavaLoon troops. Zap out key defenses, create a funnel, and unleash Lava Hounds and Balloons strategically. Timing is crucial, especially with the deployment of spells, to secure a three-star victory.
Town Hall 10: Gobo Witch (Golems, Bowlers, Witches)
For Town Hall 10, the Gobo Witch strategy involves Golems, Bowlers, and Witches. Even without personal access to Bowlers, Clan Castle troops with Bowlers can make this strategy effective. Create a funnel, unleash the troops, and watch as they decimate the base for an easy three stars.
Town Hall 11: Ice Bow Witch (Ice Golems, Bowlers, Witches, Bats)
The Ice Bow Witch strategy introduces Ice Golems, Bowlers, Witches, and Bats. Create a funnel, deploy the troops, and use Bat spells strategically to secure a three-star victory. Timing and planning are essential for success.

Town Hall 13: Yeti Super Wizard Bat Spam
Town Hall 13 introduces a spammy Yeti Super Wizard Bat strategy. Open up the base with Earthquake spells, create a funnel, and unleash Yetis, Super Wizards, and Bats. Timing is crucial for Bat spells, so pay attention to enemy defenses to secure a three-star victory.
Town Hall 14: Ice Golem Yeti Bat Spam
Town Hall 14 brings a similar spam strategy with Ice Golems, Yetis, and Bat spells. Use Earthquake spells to open up the base, create a funnel, and deploy the troops strategically. Timing is key for Bat spells, ensuring they target defenses effectively for an easy three-star win.
Town Hall 15: Ice Golem Yeti Super Wizard
Finally, at Town Hall 15, we recommend an army composition featuring Ice Golems, Yetis, and Super Wizards. Use Earthquake spells to open up the base, create a funnel, and deploy the troops for a powerful attack. While three-starring Town Hall 15 is challenging, this strategy provides a straightforward approach.
