Sorry in advance about any grammar or spelling mistakes. Also kinda long read, but it is worth it. Hope this guide helps you, or somebody you know. By following this guide you will be a maxer (person who maxes out everything before upgrading your TH)

13) Suggestions and Improvements to guide
1) Why should I read this guide, and why are you writing a guide for this?
You should read this because, it has useful information that you may not think of. This guide will also help you for future upgrades/updates. I am writing this guide because the question people ask all the time is what should I upgrade to make my base better?
2) My general rules for this guide
2a) Level 1 anything is better then nothing
Quite simple, it distracts enemy units, provides a buffer for your better defenses.
2b) Think about the long term benefits you will have
This game is about time, so more long term you think the better you will be.
2c) Quanity vs Quality and visa versa
While it is true you get more stuff with each town hall upgrade. You need to upgrade the stuff you do have to have a good base. You do not want to be a high town hall level with low level stuff. You will get owned a ton, which is no fun.
3) I just upgraded to a new Town hall level what should I do?
My answer to this after rushing my self to th6 is this. First build EVERYTHING that requires gold and elixir. New buildings even level 1 buildings distract enemy units. After you built everything you need to get your defenses caught up to previous levels of your Town Hall. REMEMBER A LEVEL 1 ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING.
For example: You just got to TH7. You build everything you can except for barbarian king. Now for the upgrading you want to upgrade your new mortar to 4, before you upgrade your old defense. THis will make your base more well rounded and cause people to not attack you as much. (3 level 4 mortars is better then 1 level 5, 1 level 4, 1 level 1) By following this rule your base will not be weak on 1 side, and it will cause you to defend better.
4) What kind of base should I use?
4a) Farming base
A Farming base is a base with a TOWN HALL IN THE CORNER NOT, AND NOT IN RANGE OF ANY DEFENSES. This simple placement of your TH will lure a lot of lower level people to attack it, then leave. I believe farming is the best base, as it is very easy to get trophies while attacking. A farming base protects your resources the best no questions asked. This may not apply to you as you want trophies on defense. With very long build times, and real life farming base just makes sense as you get a shield every time your town hall is destroyed. (I have had people who are TH4 destroy my TH and then leave, this is just recently and I am TH8)
4b) Hybrid base
This base focuses on protecting some resources, and your town hall. This base is good if you raid a lot, have nearly maxed defenses, and a lot of spare elixir or gold. Hybrid bases can get attacked multiple times during the day, with possibility of losing a lot of resources each attack. (I love to attack people who leave their storages on the sides or outside their base. Less troops for me to use and huge profit) I would only do a hybrid base if you have maxed defenses, as this provides best defense for some storages and your TH. This base setup is by far one of the hardest to get right.
4c) Trophy Hunting Base
This base setup focuses on p
