When you keep it outside, you can keep it within range of a mortar or archer tower just since there are many who will search for bases with town halls outside, with their army camps having just 5 archers. If this person makes the mistake of deploying those archers, they are bound to fall within mortar or archer tower range and boom!
Free trophies for you! At the same time, this reduces your chance of getting a shield fast. People who are looking for easy trophies will target your village; destroy your town hall and leave. In return, you get a great deal of shield time.
Builders are essential and you need some of them for faster and quicker upgrades but at town hall 8 and more, you will have a hard time keeping all of them busy because of the sheer cost of upgrades.
