LEAGUE FARMING – How to overcome the loot drought

Before you read How to overcome the loot drought through, please take a note that this is mainly for TH9-10. TH8 or lower will find themselves being attacked too often if you need to log off a lot. This strategy works better the longer you can stay online. If you do not have the time, then this may/may not benefit you.
How to overcome the loot drought :: I have been using all archers in C1 since the update. Balloons are quite costly, and take a bit of time to make. Here are a few reasons why archers are effective for league farming.

Quick to build
Cheap to build
Can shoot over walls
Frequent donation troop
Only need to make lightning spells. Use them for taking out mortars/wizard towers/enemy cc troops. Most of the time though you won’t need to use spells. Heroes will barely be used, just for picking off the last 1-10% if lets say, you find yourself in a sticky situation.
How to overcome the loot drought :: What you will be looking for

Ok so lets get into it. In crystal 1, the loot bonus is over half the cost of an all archer army ( (archers)240 x (cost)300 = 72k )

gold and elixir loots

How to overcome the loot drought :: Take into account the loot bonus 
  • 55k gold
  • 55k elixir
  •  200 de
So, I start my search. I’ll be looking out for several things;
  • Ghost bases – Bases with clogged up mines and/or collectors/empty IT’s and/or xbows ( preferably )
  • Snipes – If I find a snipe within, lets say 50 skips ( still make 5k gold hehe ), the 55k elixir each time helps to pay off your army only using 5 archers/Hero(es)
  • TH7/8’s – 50% for the loot bonus + whatever else they have – Only if you know you won’t need to use a whole army.
  • Easy storages – Storages with enough loot that is easy to get. Try to get 50% for the bonus if there is not many ressies to take ( 200k )
  • Anything else – If I think I can 50% a base and hit storages inside using heroes, I’ll go for it whether I win or lose. Snipes always bring me back up ( I’ll talk a little more about that soon ).
  • If I find a snipe with good loot, go for the loot after sniping.
Snipes – I was getting 2-5 snipes in between finding loot. This amounted to quite a lot. You’d be surprised how many you find dropping to 2300+ staying in the C1 league.

gold and elixir loots

I’ll put up some quick sums to show how much it can amount to:
The bonus build! Loot bonus ( look above ) x how many snipes = 
                                                                        55k Gold
                                                                        55k Elixir
                                                                         200 DE

                                                                      110k Gold
                                                                      110k Elixir
                                                                        400 DE

                                                                      165k Gold
                                                                      165k Elixir
                                                                         600 DE

                                                                      220k Gold
                                                                     220k Elixir
                                                                        800 DE

                                                                     275k Gold
                                                                     275k Elixir
                                                                         1k DE

You can see how they start to add up…

How to overcome the loot drought Conclusion
This in between finding juicy raids.. We all know what a max resource innactive base brings in As I had quite a few options on ways to gain loot, I was never long on nexting, loot went up quick. Especially gold and de, but elix wasn’t too bad. With all archers yours costs are not high, and the new heroes regen time makes them more effective in farming, for picking of mines/collectos/drills, or drilling into the base to hit a storage, or 4
Even hitting lower TH’s ( I know, a bit mean but times are hard ) I was either breaking even ( if I had been searching longer than usual ), or profiting.

Anyway, that’s the basics of what I have been doing. Not too tricky, and has been doing me well. Even dark elixir comes in fast. Put both heroes down ( 210k combined ) King finished in 5 hours, Queen in a day and a half, and already have 100k saved up.
