Clash Royale is a real-time strategy game that has gained great popularity worldwide. Whether you’re a new or experienced player, here are some of the best strategies you can use to improve your game and win more matches.
Schnelles Cycling (Schweine-Reiter-Ballon) The peculiarity of this gameplay strategy lies in creating decks with a high cycling ability of the “win-condition,” in this specific example, the Hog Rider, much faster than the opponent’s defenses or “counters.” This is achieved by deploying low-cost cards (1, 2, or 3 elixir) for defense, quickly regaining possession of that winning card. Cycling a card is defined as the process from when you deploy it until, by deploying other cards, you have it back in your hand. So, if you deploy low-cost cards like Goblins, Zap, Log, Ice Spirit, you can have that card back for a total cycling cost of 5 elixir, for example. The best cards for cycling in these decks are the Hog Rider and the Balloon.
Miner Control (Minenarbeiter-Gift) A highly strategic playstyle aiming to gradually chip away at the tower with the Miner. Its main drawback is that it necessarily requires this legendary card. By defending with low elixir troops, you gain an extra elixir advantage that allows you to execute the Miner-Poison combo (or Miner-Ice or Miner-Spell), ensuring about 300 damage to the tower per attack and the elimination of all small troops thrown at you to stop the Miner’s attack. The Miner can also assist in various ways throughout the match, serving as a tank and allowing your troops to freely attack the tower or target structures the opponent has. It’s a very slow but steady attacking deck and often aims for a 1-0 victory. It’s advisable to deploy the Miner in different locations to prevent it from being countered and ensure it hits the tower.
Zap/Log Bait (Fass – Prinzessin – Gang) The goal of this strategy is to have several cards that are defended with the same spell, creating confusion and forcing the defender to make hasty decisions and take some damage.
Spell Control (Blitz, Feuerball, Baumstamm) This strategy is based on using spells to control the battlefield and eliminate enemy troops. The Lightning is especially useful for eliminating high elixir cost troops like the Electro Wizard or the Inferno Dragon. The Fireball is excellent for removing low elixir cost troops like Spear Goblins or Skeletons. The Log is a good option for clearing ground and air troops and can also be used to push enemy troops towards the King’s Tower.
Double Prince Deck (Dunkler Prinz, Prinz) This strategy relies on using two legendary cards, the Dark Prince and the Prince. Both cards are excellent for attacking enemy towers, and the Dark Prince is particularly useful for defending against ground troops. The deck also includes cards like the Wizard, Zap, and Giant Skeleton to help defend against air and ground troops.
Shock Deck (Koboldhütte, Barbarenhütte) This strategy is based on using huts to generate troops consistently. The Goblin Hut is excellent for quickly generating Goblins, while the Barbarian Hut is great for generating strong Barbarians. The deck also includes cards like the Goblin Barrel and Zap to help defend against enemy troops.
I hope these strategies are helpful for you. Have a great day!
