It’s been a while since we last posted a Clash of Clans update. Now here is the new balloon level 7. Being the first air troop that would be acquired, the Balloon has been a favorite, especially for beginners in the game, as it cannot be hit by cannons and mortars. Supercell has added a new balloon level which pumps up the offense way too high. If you are new to the game and have a generous clan mate that would donate the new balloon level which is level 7, then your opponent could just pray for your attack to stop. Even with the mere clan castle troops alone, you can destroy base by base with ease. Such attacks commences in town hall 1-4 but higher than that, the air defenses have been upgraded already so you need to take them out first before you deploy your max new balloon level troops.
As you progress in Clash of Clans, the usage of balloons will slowly decline because you would be accustomed with the typical BARCH (Barbarians and Archers) or the Giants + Healers combo. However, once you reach town hall level 7, the dragons would be released. This is the most popular strategy when in wars as an all-dragon attack would dominate any town hall 7 base. As you move on to the next town hall level, dragon attacks are still the attack of choice by the many, except for those bases that are maxed out because an all-dragon attack cannot three-star a base like such. Nevertheless, balloons are still requested as a clan castle troop back up for clearing those air defenses.
When you enter town hall level 9, a variety of attacks will be available, depending on how the opponent places his or her structures. Even though the Golem, Hog Riders, Wizards, and Valkyries are what players choose to play with on the said town hall level, the Balloon Parade is also a great alternative. This involves a combination of Lava Hounds and Balloons but this attack is not that easy because you need to attack surgically, much like what you will have to do in ground based attacks. The movement is slow, even with the maxed new balloon level so you need to add in a couple of Haste Spells to aid on your attack. The key is to attack the opponent by removing the air troop’s immediate threat, which is the air defence. You can choose to eliminate one air defence with two Level 5 Lightning Spells and an Earthquake Spell, and then aim for the three other remaining air defenses.
The attack needs much time for you to get it right but once done successfully, especially with those new balloon level troops, you would be able to get the 3 stars with no trouble.
