Clash Royale Balance Changes Update 9/19


So those are all of these changes that have happened in this balance update. We can see that the most popular cards, royal giant, freeze, elixir collector, and cannon are all nerfed in a hope to be less used. However, the royal giant continues to be used, but I have see a decrease in freeze. The elixir collector also continues to be used consistently, but I noticed a decrease of its use as a damage collector. I’ve seen a bit less use of the cannon.


Of all the cards that got buffed, I’ve noticed the witch, fire spirits, and tombstone increased use. The witch has become a very good card, especially when used behind the giant, royal giant, or golem. Expect to see the witch a lot more at the higher arenas.

Thanks for reading this post! Get out there and see for yourself what these new changes are looking like. Should be interesting to find out the changes in the 2 new legendaries, the miner and the lava hound.
