Common Clash Royale Problems & How to Fix Them

Clash Royale is one of the most popular mobile games on the market, but it’s not perfect. With updates nearly once a month there are constantly changes, some of which cause problems. Especially after the latest October Clash Royale update. With that in mind, here are some common problems and how to fix them.

Every month the developers at Supercell address problems, balance gameplay, or add new features. It’s a nice touch that keeps the game good. At the same time, constant updates can cause more harm than good. Which is exactly what we’re seeing with the most recent updates.

Lately, we’ve seen more and more reports about Clash Royale problems. The forums are filled with complaints about bugs too. From playing unable to update, game freezes, missing quests and more. We’ll attempt to cover all that and more below.

Are you having problems playing Clash Royale? Some can’t watch replays or see the friends list, and others are constantly having WiFi drop. Even with a strong signal or sitting next to their router. Another big issue is the brand new daily Quests not working right.

In October, a massive update delivered tons of changes. New quests, free Epic cards on Sunday, more games modes, and balance changes. However, the update broke the aspect ratio on the Galaxy S8, Note 8, LG G6 and other 18:9 aspect ratio phones. If you have a new bezel-free device, the game doesn’t look right. Complaints are all over the place, so we’re expecting another update soon.

For the most part, a lot of the bugs that people report are just about the game freezing, or other small things. Most of them typically get fixed by the developers within a few days. However, Supercell already confirmed the “update available” but players unable to update problem could take a few days or a week.

With that all said, these are some of the most common Clash of Clans problems, and a few tips or suggestions to fix them. A lot of these won’t get fixed until another update arrives. Otherwise, our slideshow below goes into more details about the common issues players face.

WiFi Drops or Freezing

WiFi Drops or Freezing

One of the biggest problems is WiFi crashing while playing Clash Royale. The worst feeling is being in the lead during a multiplayer battle, about to beat your opponent, and seeing the dreaded WiFi logo in the middle of the screen. Everything stops responding, and the next thing you know he's 3-crowned you. Game over, you lost. 

This just happens from time to time. The way the game works is after a match is found, both players are added to a server to complete the battle. For whatever reason, WiFi drops just happen. Often times it's only to one person, and not both. Although I've got a draw before and neither player is able to drop troops. 

If you continue to experience WiFi drops over and over again, a few small things could remedy the situation. First up, physically close Clash Royale by using the multi-tasking button on iPhone or Android. Then restart it, for a more reliable connection. We'd also recommend turning WiFi off and back on, just to be safe. Head into Settings > WiFi, turn off and back on with Android. A similar step can be done on iPhone. Also, make sure battery saving or "Smart Network Switch" modes aren't enabled in the advanced settings menu on your smartphone.

Another idea is to toggle airplane mode on and back off, then re-enter your WiFi credentials or password. Or make sure your 4G LTE has at least two bars.

    When I move to the torunaments tab, the game stops ten exits. The challenge was stopped at three losses, and I have been unable to do touchdown.
