GoHogs (Hogowiwi) Attack

Published by:

This is a fairly new attack strategy for TH8.  It’s quite complicated and difficult to pull off, but if you get it right, it’s an easy 3 stars.  The premise of GoHogs is using the Barbarian King with some Golems to infiltrate the base and destroy defensive Buildings and attack Heroes.  If you choose the right side, you can activate the Giant Bomb, then send your Hogs in once your King and Golems have done their part.

Pros of the GoHogs / Hogowiwi Attack

  • Incredibly powerful
  • Double Giant Bombs are ineffective against GoHogs
  • Quick attack, no concern for time
  • Complicated, if not done exactly right it can fail miserably
  • Timing of Hog Riders can be difficult
  • Does not work well against spread bases or those with centralized defenses.

Cons of the GoHogs / Hogowiwi Attack Composition

There isn’t one best composition, you’ll have to take into consideration the layout and composition of the base you are attacking.  After using the strategy a few times, you’ll figure out how best to approach a given base.  The following composition gives you a starting point.

  • Troops – 10-30 Hog Riders, 6-14 each Barbarians and Archers, 4-12 Wizards, 2-8 Wall Breakers, and 1-3 Golems.
  • Spells – Rage and 2-3 Healing
  • Clan Troops = 5 Hog Riders, 2 each Witches and Wall Breakers, and 1 P.E.K.K.A

Thoughts on arranging your troops:

Golems and Wizards – Consider how far into the base you want to go
Giants – Consider how many directions you would like to attack from
Wall Breakers – Consider how strong the walls are and how many layers you’ll need to go through.
Barbarians and Archers – Consider the Clan Troops you’ll encounter.

Using the Strategy

The first thing you need to do is lure the clan troops.  If this proves difficult, try the following:

  • Drop two Giants near the Clan Castle if you can reach it from outside the wall.
  • Use 2-5 Hogs to destroy a couple of defensive buildings and the Clan Troops at the same time.
  • If Air Defenses are unable to cover the outer defenses, send in a few Balloons to eliminate the defenses and lure CC Troops.

After luring the CC Troops, you want to eliminate them.  The easiest way is to get them to the side you are attacking from.  Send in your Golem, followed by Wizards to eliminate Clan Troops and clear a path for your King.  Arrange your Barch and the rest of your Wizards.

After handling the Clan Troops, have your Wizards create a funnel, then send in Wall Breakers.  After the walls are down, send in Golems, followed by your King.

Your Golems and Barbarian King will be hit by any nearby defensive buildings.  Deploy a couple of Giants to absorb some damage and a couple of Hog Riders for each defensive building hitting Giants.  Repeat this as needed for each side until they are all destroyed.  Don’t forget Healing Spells as needed.

When done right, the GoHogs attack should give you an easy 3 stars.

Infection Control: A Growing Concern for Hospitals

Published by:

Infection control dividerCertain illnesses are able to pass from person to person very easily, and in some cases, the spread of infections can happen very easily. Whilst the spread of infection is a cause for concern in wider society, it is an even more important consideration for those in hospitals. In hospital buildings, there are a lot of people living together in close quarters, some of whom are already sick. The presence of infections, coupled with a population whose immune system is already compromised, means that infection control is a very important concern for hospital staff. For some patients, even minor infections can become a matter of life or death, so it is important that every precaution possible should be taken.


In some cases, patients with infections may need to be isolated, so that the infection cannot be spread to other patients in the hospital. For diseases which are known to spread very easily, isolation may be the best option, as it can help to prevent other patients from accidentally coming into contact with an infected person. Special precautions should also be taken to ensure that healthcare professionals do not spread the infection from the isolation zone to other hospital areas.

Sterilization and Disinfection

Disinfection and sterilization are used to kill disease causing microorganisms. Disinfection usually requires the use of liquid chemicals which kill organisms, whilst sterilization can be done with chemicals, steam or dry heat. Whilst disinfection kills a large number of disease causing microorganisms, it does not kill bacterial endospores. Sterilization aims to kill almost all microorganisms, although no known method is guaranteed to be 100% effective. These methods aim to prevent the spread of infection from patient to patient, for example sterilization of equipment in a hospital helps to prevent a patient from getting an infection from previous patients who used that equipment.

Hand washing

Hand washing is one of the most basic methods of infection control, but it is also one which is essential. Doctors realized as early as 1847 that hand washing by doctors in between patients was essential to stop the spread of disease. Previously, doctors either did not wash their hands between patients, or only washed their hands for their own comfort. Hand washing is now a mandatory part of infection control in most hospitals in the developed world.

Personal protective Equipment (PPE)

PPE is worn by most health care professionals to help to reduce the risk of them becoming infected. Healthcare professionals should take every step possible to ensure that they are safe when they are doing their job. As well as providing peace of mind for healthcare workers, this equipment helps to keep workers fit and healthy, so that they will be healthy enough to continue working to the best of their abilities. Many PPE items, such as gloves and surgical aprons are disposable, so as to prevent infections from being spread from one patient to another. These items are then disposed of safely as medical waste, along with other items such as swabs and syringes.
