New balance changes are here in Clash Royale, with a buff coming to cards like elite barbarians and arrows and nerfs coming for rascals and barbarian barrel. This balancing update will be released June 3rd, 2019 in Clash Royale, with 4 different nerfs and buffs coming. Here are all the balance changes coming to the June 2019 balancing update to Clash Royale!
As always, nerfs will be listed in red, while buffs are in blue.
- Elite Barbarians: Damage: +18%, Hit Speed: -13% (1.5sec -> 1.7sec)
- Rascals: Boy Hit Speed: -13% (1.3sec -> 1.5sec)
- Arrows: Projectile Speed: +37% (800 -> 1100)
- Barbarian Barrel: Damage: -10%
Balance Changes Buffs
The first buff, to the elite barbarians, is a bit concerning at first glance, but it ultimately is more of a rework than a buff. This will be less of a fast paced card and more of a heavy defensive option now, which is a good step for EBs. Arrows should also finally be a bit more competitive with the two elixir spell meta, since they will have a faster release time.
Balance Changes Nerfs
I really like the rascal nerf, since the boy rascal is supposed to serve as a tank, not a damage option. Also, it is good to see the barbarian barrel become even weaker, as even with the last nerf, it is still one of the most popular cards in Clash Royale.
There were only 4 buffs/nerfs in this balancing update, but I think that all of them will benefit Clash Royale in some way. Two of the strongest cards are being toned down, while two of the ones with the most potential are being buffed up. Thanks for reading and comment below what you think about these balance changes!

Goblin Cage desperately needs a rework or a huge buff. It’s usage rate is down to 0% in Grand Challenges
Yeah it actually turned out to be pretty weak
