TH9 Upgrade Order
The Optimized Matchmaking Version
Hey clashers! Hope wars are treating you well. I wanted to take a bit of time to provide folks with a definitive list of what and when to upgrade specific defenses as a TH9 in order to limit your impact on matchmaking and maximize your positive impact for your clan. This list doesn't reflect any of the troops and it is assumed that they are all maxed by the time your Archer Queen is level 10.
|Heroes LVL||AIR DEFENSES & LVL||SWEEPERS & LVL||TRAPS & LVL||CANNONS & LVL||ARCHER TOWERS & LVL||WIZARD TOWERS & LVL||MORTARS & LVL||TESLAS & LVL||XBOWS & LVL|
|Heroes LVL 9 Or Lower||4 LVL 6||1 LVL 3||ALL & MAX'D||5 LV 10||5 LVL 10||3 LVL 6||4 LVL 6||3 LVL 6||NO BOWS|
|Heroes LVL 10+ Each||4 LVL 7||2 LVL 5||ALL & MAX'D||5 LV 10||5 LVL 10||3 LVL 6||4 LVL 6||3 LVL 6||NO BOWS|
|Heroes LVL 15+ Each||4 LVL 7||2 LVL 5||ALL & MAX'D||5 LV 10||6 LVL 10||4 LVL 6||4 LVL 6||4 LVL 6||BOWS LVL 1|
|Heroes LVL 20+ Each||4 LVL 7||2 LVL 5||ALL & MAX'D||5 LV 11||6 LVL 11||4 LVL 7||4 LVL 7||4 LVL 7||BOWS LVL 2|
Notice I did not give a time to get XBOWS LVL 3. I think that is a big decision for a player and should only be made once they are confident that they have a real shot at three starring any TH9 they see. If the answer is an honest yes, get your LVL 3 XBOWS anytime after heroes are LVL 20+ each. This may seem like a very harsh and hard way to go about upgrades, but it will give you a huge return in the way of clan war wins. You can also wait longer on all the upgrades or forgo them completely to maximize your war weight further. Feel free to email me with any questions and to leave comments below.
