This is the only picture of my base for today. Did a few upgrades here including an archer tower and AD. If you notice, these buildings are slowly going to maxed TH8/9 levels. These upgrades are now ridiculous because they only take 2 days (1.5 days with gold pass) which allows a new TH9 to max out their defenses within a month of TH9.
However, a maxer would not upgrade their TH and would spend another 4-6 months working on heroes. Then falsely think that 30/30 heroes helped them reach 40/40 quickly, not understanding that they probably could’ve finished 40/40 much more quickly if they rushed initially. The funny thing about all this is that SC reduced the time required for many upgrades, yet did not decrease the time it takes to max each TH level. In the end, TH10s can spend 5-6 months just waiting for their lab with maxed defenses and heroes.
Maxers then like to say that if you have weak troops, you will suffer which is blatantly false. For events like these you can simply use a power potion to complete the event. And after maxing barch 8, you can upgrade any war army you like and do well in wars as well. Most of the lab is fluff anyway so not upgrading them won’t actually harm you at all.
These days even maxers say its ok to upgrade their TH even if lab is not maxed it seems. Hypocrites
