I am wondering what the advantages and disadvantages are for upgrading you town hall before maxing everything else out.

I have heard that rushing isn't worth unlocking new things and that going against lower town halls will allow you to take less loot from them. How much less, and where is this confirmed? Yet, upgrading your TH sometimes results in a lower % amount of loot that enemies can take from your storages. Yes the cap increases, but one could stay below a certain amount of gold so that the lower % is more worth it. See here For example, let's say the cap increases from 150k to 300k but the % loot available to be stolen from storages decreases from 20% to 10% when I upgrade my TH. If I had 750k gold with the lower TH, they could steal 150k, but when I upgrade my TH, I can have up to 1.5 million gold by the time they can take 150k, so as long as I have less than 1.5 million gold/elixir before logging off, they can steal less loot with that higher TH. What are all the advantages and disadvantages of rushing in Clash of Clans, and I want sources for statistics.

  • One of the biggest disadvantages listed was again, a difference in town hall levels allows different amounts of loot to be stolen. How is this a duplicate if I ask what number this is, and where this is listed. I want sources for statistics not claims please, the duplicate doesn’t have that. Aug 18 '20 at 17:03

The main disadvantage of rushing is war-weight if you rush your town hall and didn't focus on maxing troops and buildings then most of your opponents will be same as your town hall but have tough troops and buildings then yours.

  • Actually war opponents are based on types and levels of defenses, not TH level Aug 18 '20 at 16:50
  • So you can't upgrade your town hall without building all required buildings it means you have more defenses, levels of defenses matters but there presence also does

  • What I meant to say was TH alone doesn’t determine position in war Aug 18 '20 at 22:36
