I've been playing the game a while, and as you get to higher levels there is a significant need to stockpile large quantities of resources before you can start the higher level upgrades (Town Hall level 9, Clan Castle Level 4, Barracks Dragons upgrade, etc). In order to accomplish this without racking up a huge credit card bill, it seems that you have to raid frequently and win big jackpots each time you do so. I have found this to be very challenging because:
- I can usually only string together 2-3 attacks feasibly, due to the time it takes to train units.
- Related to the previous point, I often spend almost my entire stock of units during a raid, in order to win.
- Also related, I have the tough choice of training strong units which take forever to train and are very expensive, or weak ones which train quick and cheap but get wiped out rapidly.
- I often find it hard to even find opponents with big stockpiles, and when I do I often can't beat them.
I see other folks climbing the ranks and getting the big upgrades, so I know there must be a better way. So what's the most effective unit loadout and/or strategy to get big resource payouts (sufficient to get the high level upgrades)?
