Clash Royale Update: 7 Changes We Want Next

Since being released over a year ago Clash Royale has changed a lot. Multiple Clash Royale updates have added new features, additional troops, 2v2 clan battles and more. As 2017 continues and summer nears, here’s what we want to see next. Including an “end game” strategy or casual modes.

The developers at Supercell have been making changes based on feedback since the game first arrived. The past three months we’ve seen major changes, but the biggest are yet to come. March 2017 was a huge month for the game, but what comes next will be even better.

Clash Royale is one of the most balanced and fine-tuned games on the market, but there is always room for improvement. From new troops, better balance, and new game modes to make it more exciting. After a year of non-stop battles, some may be looking for something else. Like a casual mode or achievements. Below are some changes we want next in Clash Royale.

Clash-Royale-main

Every month since being released in March of 2016 we’ve seen an update or two. Everything from dozens of new cards, legendary troops, game balances, and even a way to get rid of cheaters. Supercell is one of the best developers when it comes to updates. Which means you can bet there will be more in Clash Royale soon. We know a new healing spell is coming, which should really mix things up.

Tournaments are almost never used and challenges took their place. While they are fun, we’d love to see Tournaments get re-worked once again. A few reports suggest that’s exactly what’s happening in April or May, among other things.

In February Supercell fixed some big pain points. They toned down the Executioner, made Elite Barbs less powerful, and returned some lesser used cards to glory by making them stronger than ever before. The result is an ever-changing game where players are always on their heels, and constantly trying to improve. The April update slowed down the Royal Giant, which everyone can appreciate.

When it comes to playing Clash Royale it’s all about strategy. Players get the same amount of Elixir to buy troops to attack their enemy, and it’s all about being strategic, fast to react, and keeping track of your Elixir. In the end the goal is to have a good trade-off and out maneuver your opponent and take down a tower or two for the win.

There are multiple ways to win and countless different decks that can be extremely deadly, but we’ve been doing the same thing for a year. Look for new ways to win, at least four exciting new cards, and new game modes to completely shake up the game. Everyone plays different, and each user has unique strengths and weaknesses, as do certain troops. Which what makes the game fun. Not everyone will agree with what’s detailed below, but for the most part they’d be a welcomed edition to Clash Royale. I’d go as far as to say these changes need to happen.

Our slideshow below goes over a few awesome changes, new troops, or features we’d like to see come in the next few Clash Royale updates in 2017. Some have been confirmed, others just rumors. Get ready for the healing spell, an end game strategy and even a new casual mode.

Heroes

 1 / 7
Heroes

The thought of healing spells or the Healer from Clash of Clans was in this list for a while, but Supercell recently confirmed exactly that. In the next 1-2 months there will be a "Heal Spell" that I can't wait to try. 

However, the next thing we keep seeing comments on are Heroes. The Barbarian King and Archer Queen from Clash of Clans. Obviously something that powerful can't come to Clash Royale, but they could arrive in a different form. If we really will see an "End Game" beyond legendary trophies, facing something like that could be it. The Archer Queen Boss where you really have to be at the top of your game. 

Legendary cards are readily available from chests or the shop, and now we need something else to shake up the gameplay near the top. And while I don't think heroes are the answer, it makes a lot of sense that we could see something like this in the future. There are rumors of at least four new cards being announced in March, none are heroes. 

How about adding two or four new "mystical" cards or Heroes that can turn the battle in your favor. Maybe for those above 4000 trophies, or 5000. Who knows. It could easily make things extremely unbalanced, but the developers are good at keeping things on an even keel. Well, most of the time.  

Would you be open to the idea of a new class of cards above Legendary? Or just something to radically change how the game is played for high level players. Let us know.

    I want to see the cheating eliminated. There is a third party Chinese hack that lets them see your elixir and open chests without waiting among other things. That’s why you have so many Asians with such ridiculous stats. They will be level 9 or 10 with 2300 trophies but when you look at their wins they have 500 or so. I love the game but if this isn’t fixed soon I’m out.

    2300 trophies is easy. I’ve been between 2500 and 2900 since 500 wins (level 8). Getting past there is insane bc as soon as you get past 2600 you’re playing level 10s with level 10 Commons, 8 rares, 3 or 4 epics, and of course they ALL HAVE LEGENDARIES and I have none even though I’m 250 xp from level 10.

    08/18/2016 at 7:04 pm

    LMAO 2300? Im at 2930 and i havent even hit 500 wins yet. What I think about the sparky however is the range of splash damage after it shoots at a troop. It can take out a line of barbs in one shot which is so unfair. Also only one mistake against a sparky so its pretty much high risk medium reward while facing the sparky. Most of you have been talking about the royal giant, which is so OP and gets a hit off NO MATTER WHAT unless a defense is placed. Along with the RG the giant needs a nerf too! Way too much health and the ability it has to tank everything thrown his way and almost ensuring hits off from the support troops behind. Its good that the legendaries will be easier but from what ive heard its only going to be in tournaments?!?!?! If so that is absolute BS and needs to be brought out into all other chests besides those from tournaments. This is yet another sign of supercell being greedy and trying to force players into gemming their way into getting legendaries. I could go on and on about other troops like the mini pekka and all other types of troops that are broken but I feel that I have made my point. Only reason my opinion is so strong on this is because clash royale is a great game and I love it. :)

    Sick to death of people calling for nerf sparky and complaining. All I can say is, if you dont know how to drop a stinking zap spell and then a troop on top of a defenseless hunk of metal then you are useless. I used to use it. AT 2900 the skill level goes up. Sparky becomes redundant. People use a card called zap. People use minipekka. If you cant handle sparky its your skill level and thats all. That is the bottom line. There is one player with sparky in the top 200 atm. There is a reason for that. Use your brains and stop panicking and its the worst legendary in the game end of story.

      The point isn’t that the Sparky needs to be nerfed because she’a a tough counter, it’s that now everyone has to carry the same cards to counter her. Sure, it’s pretty simple with the right cards, but now everyone’s deck consists of those same cards. It makes the game boring, because you fight the same structure of decks every single time. I had a very strong Prince/Minion Horde deck I liked using until I got to the higher side of arena 8 when I had to sacrifice my strategy to carry those counter cards, and just ended up building another giant deck to fit, which is super lame. The Sparky needs nerf to promote various strategies, not because everyone sucks.

    Unfortunately all healing of any kind has been ruled out by SC. This can be found in the forum. But I agree that the healer would be a great idea. Here is my post on the forums:

    First of all, I believe SC should bring events into CR similar to CoC. The idea would be that on holidays or the week of, a special shop event would take place. On such day (or during such week) the shop would show three cards related to that holiday at a discounted price. Everyone would be able to view this items but they cannot be purchased if one is below that card’s arena.

    There is several problems however such as this event is not equal for everyone especially if they are in lower arenas and cannot purchase these cards. Please read my next idea as well and suggestions for both are welcome!

    My second idea is a new arena (that is physically heaven-like) and new cards (legendary healer and also an epic heal spell). I believe this arena should be placed at 2600+ to bridge the trophy gap between the legendary and frozen peaks arena. Physically, this arena would also bridge the gaps as on top of the peaks of arena 8 you can travel up into the clouds of this new arena and reach the floating islands of legendary arena. This arena would also introduce the long expected healer and heal spell from CoC. At the same time it would allow for the evolution of new decks specific to this arena and legendary. Players here would now have new strategies that lower players will admire and be jealous of as the healing ability would create a new environment.

    However, the healing factor should not actually “heal” as this would drastically change the gameplay and make some cards temporarily invulnerable. Healing would nearly change every deck and that would result in very negative consequences and almost certainly result in many op combos and change the game’s style altogether. So, the healing factor should cause troops to momentarily increase their max health while keeping their percentage of health the same. Or in other words they’ll have X times as much health for a short time. After the heal ends the life max will return but the overall percentage stays the same. For example, a giant with 500/3000 health (17% remaining)— is healed with a x2 (200%) heal spell. His health would become 1000/6000 health for a time (still 17% remaining). Hits to the giant will now do basically 2x less to him until the boost ends.

    This healing factor would then not alter gameplay too much and would have a similar effect to the rage or poisoning the enemy. I believe this would make a great addition especially as the healer could shoot friendly ground troops with a heal. The healer’s healing effect would then be a mix between the ice wizard who shoots a slowing factor and the lumberjack who drops a damage/speed effect. Please comment suggestions and other ideas, and also spread the word so SC hears us! Thanks!

    What do you mean the lava hound got a major health buff?! It got a 3% increase lol. The lava hound is already considered weak and there is almost no air attacks right now anyway. An air defense would discourage the 1% of players who do use air making air attacks pointless.

    Yes, the sparky is easy to counter but it still needs a nerf for its insane splash damage range. Say someone were to try to counter the soarks by surrounding it with barbs and misplaced it so that it made a line. The sparky is able to take out a full horizontal line of them making it the most useless 5 elixir ever! However the sparky doesn’t nearly need a nerf as much as the royal giant or giant

    3 musketeers need to cost less. Super easy to kill and they cost all your elixir. Poison needs a nerf since they are no counters to it at all. And they should change the elixir pump back to what it was since things like the miner and poison so easily destroy them. Royale giant and sparky obviously need a nerf. Also so many people use super low cost elixir decks in 2900 and up its ridiculous. Basically using a card that costs more then 6 elixir, that isn’t a Royale giant and sparky, is useless. That’s why you see so many sparky and Royale giant. You can’t kill them with higher cost elixir cards because you’ll get spammed with a ton of low level elixir cards. Also the match making is dump. When you lose a match it’s a pretty much a guaranteed 2-3 victories just to get back to where you were. Some days I’ll be at 3300 and have fallen all they way to 2800 just because of how the match making is and how many victories it takes to get to back to the same spot.

    If these cool things were added in the game, I just can’t imagine who exciting it could be playing it. If Air Defenses are brought in Clash Royale too, it would help killing out those Balloons that come flying in peace. And the Sparky, it’s just gonna kill everything in sight. Holy, these are cool.

    1. Healing or Healing Spell – this is going to be overpower. Healing is not for Clash Royale.
    2. Air Defense – Another building card for defense? Oh please! This isn’t Clash Of Clans where you just play defense with building. Learn to play defense with your troops.
    3. More Gold – Actually there is more gold if you can climb on a higher arena. And just a piece of advice, do not upgrade everything, only upgrade your deck so you can save gold.
    4. Give us Legendary Cards – Why people are so scared with legendary cards? Many players reached Legendary Arena without a legendary card and without spending some cash, you just needs skills.
    5. If these taunts frusrates you, you always lose I bet. Just saying.
    6. Better Tournaments – Oh, this one I agree.
    7. Dark Elixir troops – And again as I said, this is not Clash Of Clans. Stop it.

    What I want for this game are new cards (Not from Clash Of Clans).

    I think I am one of those guys who didn’t like Clash Of Clans but loved Clash Royale. For me Clash Royale requires more skill than Clash Of Clans.

    Ok, first off, no one in my arena uses the sparky, and if they do, there either EXTREMELY skilled or stupid. What i do see a lot is the elite barbs. Skeliton army is my main counter, but everyone’s got a zap or arrows. Btw im in arena 10 3500 to 3650(9 legendaries, 3 level two). You can always just stack up a bunch of troops to pick em off, but that requires a lot of elixer. Hear’s what I think. The attack is fine, if they are over-nerfed, they loose what makes them special. They would just be two dofferently textured barbarians. The health is what needs to be nerfed. NERFED, not, nerfed. Like, 15%, 20 mabey, im not that good with stat scales, but, that seems about right.

    You are an idiot if you think sparky needs a nerf. People are complaining that it has splash damage, but they must understand that it is a legendary for a reason. SC made a dangerous LEGENDARY card that is easy to counter. Not a common. Not a rare. Not even an epic! A LEGENDARY. Seriously, if you have to complain that it is overpowered, you need to quit Clash Royale, because nobody wants you scumbags who don’t understand the meaning of legendary ruining the game.

    In my opinion, Sparky does not need a nerf. The people who complain about Sparky are absolute trash at the game. If you rage just because of Sparky, then this game is not for you. For me, countering Sparky is easy with two Zap spells: Zap and Electro Wizard. As long as you have Zap or something you can split,STOP COMPLAINING!!!! But in my opinion, I believe the “RG” needs a nerf: less health, less damage, and less range, but by a tiny to small amount- 5% at max. Other than that CR is totally fine the way it is.

    I use Sparky since I was 2000 trophies, still using it and I’m at 4500+ trophies. I just gotten very good at protecting it. I almost always win the 12-win streak challenges using the Sparky deck. The latest Zap nerf made about 70% of the 4000+ players drop it from their deck, which made my life easier since I had to shield it with a giant, minion horde before to protect it!

    See that’s the thing, I carry Zap and E-Wiz. I don’t really have to worry about Sparky decks. I always beat them. If they put minion horde, -I will usually have zap and e-wiz in my hand together- I can zap and put e-wiz. They will be put out of their misery. Or if I don’t have zap, I can use fireball and it will do the trick. But other than that, I still love zap and its properties.
