Okay 1st off maxing out everything here is a HUGE mistake, this is not clash, you do not get penalized for having a high throne room! You actually will earn MORE gold by leveling your throne room ASAP
If you spending don’t worry about farms as much as you will just buy bread. I recommend using all your gems and buying gems when you get lowish and see a approx 50% off gems sale and buy several batch of those to keep you supplied. When you are low on gems the game will also send you a special offer package as well often to try and get you to buy gems.
Base layout, worry about that once you reach 3000+ as pretty much under 3000 it is just all offensive power pushing you up. After 3000+ you will need to have some max barricades with elite boosts on from your alliance, and then some other elite boosts on for defense like wolf, knight, archers, mummy, arblasters. Those will push you up to the 4000-4500 but you will need to practice your raiding skills or just blow a shit load of money on scrolling. From there you just need to raid a lot and finish maxing out your WAVES in your castle guard as having tons of units in those waves on your defense will kill many kings. Improve your raiding skills and buy levels for your king. Get to level 90+ and buy some Legendary gears and you will be in the 100 easily.
There is a decent amount of videos on youtube but nothing compared to clash.
List of upgrades you want to do in order.
You will probably want to join the SK alliance as they have feeders and are one of the top alliances in the game.
As other pointed out level up your ALLIANCE tower asap, if you want to get into a top alliance getting that alliance tower to level 11 which costs like a total of 10,000 gems and several weeks will all but surly get you into a top 100 alliance pretty much regardless of your level. After that you must be active daily or you might get kicked by some alliance as when wars come around every day is important, just like clash. If you don’t fight in the war season for your alliance you are hurting them so they might kick you. If you level is to low, they might also kick you as well since you will be easy prey in the wars.
It will take several weeks before you are up to 3000+ unless you are spending THOUSANDS to spend up all the progress of everything. The sub 3000 treat as tutorial or basic training.
