Clash Royale Balance Changes Update July 2nd 2018

Balance Changes Nerfs

The biggest nerf in the July balancing update are the rascals, which are finally proved to be too OP. The rascal boy’s health will be reduced, while the girls will attack slower at first. The mortar is also getting a decent sized nerf, with damage and hitpoints being reduced. After being strong for a while, the mega minion is being toned down with a slight hit speed decrease. Finally the goblins are having a 1% HP decrease, probably to help with some interactions.

Balance Changes Buffs

There are two buffs in this balancing update, both to cards that really needed it. First up is the bomber who gets a range increase by half a tile to hopefully make him up to par with air splash units. The fire spirits are also having a damage increase, which should make it easier to take out fireballable units!

Balance Changes Reworks

Along with the new cards being added to clan wars, the only real rework is to the witch. The witch’s hitpoints are getting a HUGE increase, but will still die to the lightning spell. The spawn speed of her skeletons are also now being increased from every 7 seconds to every 5 seconds. The nerf in return for all of this is a slower hit speed, down from .7 seconds to 1 second.

I’m really happy to see that the balance changes are really coming out pretty often now, with one every two weeks! I’m a bit concerned that the witch is going to become OP, but we will have to wait and see. Thanks for reading and comment below what you think of these balance changes!

  3. So mortar is actually a lot more OP than the X-Bow eh? They decided to nerf it instead of X-Bow is it because people hate mortar more or is it because they want more X-Bows in action?


  4. I don’t think you’re happy about the fire Spirits buff……. they said they want to make furnace more threatening !
