Supercell has made an important move away from Clash of Clans and introduced us to an amazingly fun new game, Clash Royale. A PvP experience like no other, one that is both fun and extremely addictive, Clash Royale mixes strategy gameplay with collectible card games and the result is absolutely impressive. But you already know that if you’ve played the game and you want something else: maybe some Clash Royale cheats and tips that will help you win your battles and get the best deck possible. And that’s exactly what I am going to share with you here!
These Clash Royale tips and tricks are mostly aimed at beginner players, but it will surely not hurt if advanced players read them as well – maybe there’s something that will help them improve their game even more. We have a lot more content coming for this amazing game, but until then let’s check out below Touch Tap Play’s Clash Royale tips & cheats!
1. Wait for that first attack
Unless you really have a super card to open up with, it’s usually a better idea to wait before making your first attack. Wait to see what card your opponent plays, so you can use a counterattack card and deal with the situation easier. This doesn’t always work, but it’s worth being a bit patient!
2. Don’t be afraid to defend
Defense is extremely important in the game and it managed to win me a lot of battles. So focus on the defense – or better said, make sure that you are always having your towers covered. Place your troops smartly to take out the enemy. Always consider the elixir count when deploying troops and try to have the upper hand in battle: most enemies rush with high value cards that you will take out easier in defense with the help of your towers. If you manage to survive this quick wave, then you have more elixir and better chances to counter and actually destroy your enemy. So be smart and play your cards right in defense to win more battles!
3. Watch replays on TV Royale
There’s a lot of strategy involved in this game and by watching replays on TV Royale, you can learn a lot of important things and put them to good use in order to win more games. It’s always worth watching the best players… play the game and you will have better chances to become one.
4. Find the cards that work for you
There will always be some cards in Clash Royale that will be considered overpowered and Supercell will always nerf them when they get the chance. So there’s no universal route to follow to win all your battles – some decks are better than others, some cards are better than others and card combos and counterattacks matter a lot. Watch your opponents play and learn from their mistakes or good moves, try cards and different strategies and keep on using those that work for you. If Skeleton Armies give you wins – go for it!
5. Upgrade your cards when you know what they do
There’s an awful lot of cards available in the game and you won’t have the resources to max them out. I will soon write an article about the best cards in my opinion (although these change since Supercell changes their stats constantly them constantly) but until then a good rule of thumb is to wait a little bit before deciding on the route to follow and the cards you have to upgrade. Resources spent on upgrading a card you will no longer use later in the game won’t be recovered, so it’s best to make an educated choice and only focus on upgrading cards you love and you know you’ll use later on as well.
6. It’s easier to win in overtime
When the 60 seconds of overtime begin, the one who destroys the first tower wins. This means that, if it seems that you’re moving towards a draw, it’s best to plan your moves to actually be the first to destroy a tower. Big damage cards work best here – like the Rocket – so make sure you hold onto them and use them at the right time to turn things around and grab that win!
7. Tips for building the perfect deck
Building a good deck requires time and dedication, but I am sure you have that! Even so, you will have different cards and you will have to make the best out of what you’re given. However, there are some strategies that work better than others and some common cards that are definitely worth keeping for the long run. So here are some tips for building a perfect deck, no matter what cards you have:
– mix and match. Some card combinations work great (like skeleton army deployed slightly before the Giant) and you have to try them out. Test and then decide upon your deck – and don’t forget to keep commons as well as rarer cards to keep things balanced.
– Some of the best cards at the moment, in my opinion, that won’t hurt having in most decks, especially in the beginner/intermediate phases are the Arrows (great for taking out enemies), Witch/Musketeer and Giant/Prince. In other words, it’s a good idea to always have a tank (big health, absorbs a ton of damage), ranged units and a quick spell to fix skeleton armies and other hordes of invaders.
That’s all for now, but we’re working on a more in-depth article about deck building.
8. Spam buildings to save your tower
One interesting strategy in order to save your tower in overtime is to start spawning buildings around it – the more the better, as they will take enemies off the patch and keep you safe. There are unfair situations when you manage to destroy a tower and the enemy won’t destroy any of yours, but it’s left with just a bit of health. It will be a lot easier for them to win, so try to keep it safe with buildings – and hope they don’t have a rocket!
