CoC BH8 - Mitch Attack Strategy
This is probably the most common deployment strategy. The Night Witches are dropped in the corner furthest from the base, providing maximum time and distance for Bats to hit the base and do their thing (clear air Mines/MegaMines, take down junk buildings, maybe hit a key defense or two). Choosing the corner is really one of personal preference - my preference is to go after the MultiMortar for the reasons I mentioned above. If I can’t get to the MultiMortar easily, I’ll often go for one of the other key defenses, especially Air Bombs.
Straight Line Deployment
Sometimes, the base is laid out in such a way as an attack from one side (rather than the corner) makes sense. You won’t get quite the clustering of Bats you achieve with a corner attack, but you get enough that they still work well. The dependency here is what you want to clear early. This deployment works well against some box bases and when key defenses are along an edge of the enemy base. It’s not that much different than the corner deployment, but you do need to put in a little more time breaking down the base defenses and your Battle Machine goes in earlier.
Now…the big caveat here…don’t forget to look for ground mines!
