A Collection of My Clash Royale Tips and Tricks

You know I love playing Clash Royale from Supercell. So I’ve collected few tips and tricks along the way that I’d like to share with you. Happy clashing, people!

But First…the Graveyard. I’m really looking forward to playing this new card.


And here are 10 facts you need to know…

OK, let’s get on with the Clash Royale tips!

Unleash the Fire!

Here’s an important suggestion that once among your competitions’ Towers drop you’ll should take heed of its King’s Tower begins assaulting you. That super tower that is significant may also begin attacking you once you hit them.

If you believe the King’s Towers’ strikes are beginning to rev up or you’re prepared to beat ’ em, throw some fireballs and arrows its manner. The King’s Tower is a powerful foe, but a mixture of those strikes plus the help of troops which are on the field should whittle down its health right away.

To be fairly frank, your set of arrows and fireballs should just be used on the King’s Tower. Using those strike cards in any way that is other works just as well.

Patience is a Virtue

Clash Royale mashes it up with card fighting mechanisms and takes the Battle of Families formula. Lots of magic strikes and the exact same troops you’re comfortable with are contained within trading card type.

On the battle field, it might seem like an excellent idea to rush the strike as fast as possible and take your opponent down. But during the opening minutes of a match, start out slow with your offensive strategy. Don’t freak out too much when you discover your towers are becoming assaulted; remain composed and send your troops out according to your tactical plans.

When you do take down a minimum of one Competition Tower, that’s the time where you catch the win as quickly as possible and should ramp up your strike. As the time winds down to seconds and its last minute, the speed where your Elixir refills will double. This provides you with the opportunity to place more troops than before.

Poison, Baby

Be sure to put it to use during one particular scenario that occurs during every match when you eventually add the Toxin enchantment card to your own deck. It’s best to hit them with this gaseous cloud of departure when you find your towers becoming a bit flooded by enemy troops.

This way you’ll find a way to impede on enemies that are incoming and open them up for more assaults out of your towers. The Toxin enchantment card also helps give your troops an edge since they’ll have a less difficult time wiping out troops that are poisoned. The Toxin enchantment card costs four points of Elixir, so it should not be difficult to break it outside when the time.

Be Smart and Savvy with Your Elixir

Pay close attention to your own Elixir meter as you pull new cards out and place em that is. Fight the impulse to put a strong troop out on day one of a match; play with the kind of cards who’s value reaches as much as a max amount of four. Use units that are smaller in order to flood the battle field and whittle down your foe’s tower well-being. It to let your towers wipe out the smaller troops assaulting them instead of spending to be able to get the better of them a card to be spawned by Elixir.

You should just spend when you realize you’ll have enough to spend on another troop right after some Elixir to spawn a strong troop. Do’t function as kind of player who has little to none and overspends Elixir.

The Best Troops

We’ve a couple favorites in regards to the troop cards you’ll need to undoubtedly take into conflict. Super Goblins and goblins are not expensive as it pertains to spending Elixir, so it’s not difficult to throw a group of em that is ’ on the battle field. Archers are great long range troops who you should set up near your towers.

Baby Dragons can steer clear of the strikes of some troops, plus its fireball strikes find a way to wipe out multiple troop simultaneously. Barbarians pack lots of HP, helping to make them excellent “Tank” type characters who can tear up enemy troops immediately and continue a great while. Golems are the most powerful troop kind there’s throw one out near the termination minutes of a match to nab the triumph ASAP.

Wizard, Minion Horde, giant Skeleton and Prince cards come also, thus embrace a strategy for them that works for you.

Wait for Those Chests

If you’re pressed for time, odds are high that you’re gonna spend several stone to open just got chests up instantly. You’ll be allowed access to cards that are new by simply cracking open. You ’ll be fortunate enough to get Epic Poem kind card or an Infrequent. You then shouldn’t if you’re patient have much of an issue waiting the allotted time needed for a chest to show all of the goodies inside.

Free Chests open up when you get ’em (you’ll get a brand new one every four hours), plus Silver Chests take three hours to open. Gold Chests take eight hours, Magic Chests take 12 hours and Crown Chests open up immediately (you’ll get a brand new one every 24 hours). For the last two chest sorts in the game, Giant Chests take Super Magic Chests and 12 hours take 24 hours to open.


Know Your Buildings!

Battle Royale’s cards depending on buildings contains the Barbarian Hut, Tesla, Goblin Hut, Blast Tower, Tombstone, Inferno Tower, Cannon, X-Bow Elixir and Collector. You should currently have a hint about the advantages and powers behind these cards if you’re a hardcore Battle of Families player.

My favorite Building cards are the Barbarian Elixir, Tesla and Hut Collector. The Barbarian Hut helps occasionally add more troops the Tesla is and the Elixir Collector does an amazing job of giving your more Elixir than normal.

Know Your Arena!

So that you can achieve stadium rankings that are higher, you should win those PVP matches that are on-line. Cards and the better the stadium, the more powerful the adversaries you’ll come across. So the beginning Training Camp is a fundamental tutorial camp where 12 cards are unlocked for you.

Lose to Win

Early game epic poems appear to be the most useful, for example, Witch, Prince, and Mini P.E.K.K.A. More cards unlock, meaning your chances of getting the card you need go down as you go into new arenas. You may need there to be as few other cards that can come from torsos as potential to level up these early cards the quickest. To try it, lose. Yes, you read that right, lose. Get back to less or 400 prizes. Open all the chests you’ve got once you get there. You may get the uncommon cards you have to succeed at a level that is higher.

Hoard Your Gold

It’s much far better to be choosy about your upgrades, although it’s really tempting in the beginning to update every card you possibly can. Typically, I’d stick to updating cards that are largely common since they’re more affordable. Additionally, just use your gold to update cards you understand you use often and enjoy.

Free chests get at regular times for you and you get a torso when you win a conflict so you’ll have the ability to update other cards as you go along in the goodies you get in those chests. Gold is extremely difficult to come by in the game, so being cautious about how you spend it’ll make a difference for your deck and the quantity of conflicts you win.


Clash Royale – Starting Push Deck

This can be an easy guide for a deck I’ve been using in the very popular mobile game Clash Royale.

The really cool thing about this deck is that it features tutorial and first arena cards, making it appropriate for everyone.

Personally, I used this deck in the 1700-2300 levels and can verify that if played right may be used in high amounts of play and battles. It will take you far!

OK, enough build-up. Here are the cards you should use:

  •  Archers
  • Bomber
  • Arrows
  • Spear Goblins
  • Mini Pekka
  • Musketeer
  • Giant
  • Prince

Important Note: The Prince is very difficult to replace and is an integral part of the deck. This strategy won’t go far without the Prince leading the charge (literally!)

In a match you’ll have two selections. In these two scenarios you may use a combo that is similar to get crowns. Each push you do you should look to put a giant at the rear part of your side so you’ll be able to augment it as it goes over the bridge and so that you can let your elixir.


You are going to primarily use archers, bomber, and your spear goblins as the have an incredibly low cost and let you cycle through immediately. Your musketeer should be used against baby dragons and balloons since it flourishes in air defensive scenarios. Your miniature PEKKA, believe it or not, is also excellent at protecting against hog riders and giants since it can go on a counter push and has a high damage vehicle assault.

Weaknesses and Things to Watch Out For

This deck can overwhelm many players which can be not prepared but can have some rough if things go sour matches. The only deck that’s given me issues unlike any other is the golem. Golems are an important counter for this deck and beyond and secure the gates to stadium 6. The only method I’ve had the opportunity to defeat them is shoving on the opposite side for an early crown afterward doing my best to defend it away. The final matter that can cease your push is a skeleton military which once you have seen one time you will end up able use and to call bomber or your arrows later on to overcome.

Oh, and random thought. Why, oh why, did they nerf the Giant?


VLC Media Player

Tip: Convert Media Files with VLC

Tiny Breath

I’m just figuring out how to participate in the daily prompts and this is a response to the Daily Prompt for Tiny. I think I have it figured out!

I step out onto the beach and watch the waves crash down.

The storm has long since subsided but the harsh sounds still linger in my ears.

The frustration grows and gnaws inside me.

I relax.

I take tiny breaths. Small ones to ease the pain.

The breaths get larger.

Peace arrives.

I turn away from the ocean and walk home, along the sand.


Eventide 2 – Sorcerer’s Mirror

I saw this new game featured on the Apple Mac App Store and I’m thinking about playing it.

It’s a Hidden Object Adventure Puzzle Game and even though I don’t play those kinds of games too much, I think this one looks good. The art is really nice.

Sorcerer’s Mirror is the second chapter in the Eventide series.

The game is free as a special introductory price and has in-game purchases to unlock stuff.

I will let you know what I think after I play it some more.
