Clash Royale Fundamentals
The image that I will be looking at is connected to a mobile game called Clash Royale. This game is usully a 1vs1 between two real people in real time. It is a battle to destroy the enemy princess towers and eventually destroy the King Tower which will automatically end the game as a victory in your favor. The two princess towers are called that because there are princesses bestowed them defending with every single arrow. There are a certain number of hit points that the princess towers has depending on their levels, once the hit points reach zero then the tower is destroyed. There are two people with the same flowing Elixir bar, it’s just what they decide to deploy with that Elixir that will win them the battle. There are varies type of decks from ground attacks like Golem beat down to air attacks like Lava Hound and Baby Dragon. These strategies are to be used in order to receive a victory such as play passively and then rush them when you know they have overcomitted or at a huge Elixir disadvantage. Great Cards to rush are Elite Barbarians, Hog Rider, Graveyard, Bandit and Three Musketeers. These pushes need to be accompanied by something else so prepare to defend afterwards if you have spent way too much Elixir on these pushes. The best part of Clash Royale is the fact that two people can play against two other people in real time. Twice the people equals twice the Elixir and therefore twice as much fun. It gets very hectic in 2vs2 because in a normal battles when it reaches double Elixir there is a crazy amount of elixir on the field in a push, now imagine that but with four people playing instead of two and someone that has your back when you’re out of Elixir. The best part of this is that if you lose you do not get deducted any trophies but instead if you win you receive gold and chests to advance in your chest cycle. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain some go ahead and try it. 2V2 is totally stress free unlike ladder battles because you lose trophies and they are not easy to get them back and for some people that could be the difference that separates them from an advancing to another arena or dropping to the one below. The image shown above is an April Fools prank by Supercell that features an 8vs8 instead of a 2vs2. This is a prank because there were also new troops hidden in that image and even a possible trap. The new troops was leaked as the Elixir monster which is technically a blob of Elixir that has the same properties as a Golem in which they turn into Golemites it’s but this troop had a twist to it which was that if the Golemitesame were left unattended they had the potential to turn into a full grown Elixir monster over time. The other image was strange was a trap called the bear trap which held enemy troops near that and inflicted damage over time. This was obviously an April Fools joke because an 8vs8 would be way too crazy and the game would not be able to handle it, only lag. By the way the Elixir monster nor the bear trap were ever released in Clash Royale. It was a great teaser to trick people into thinking that this was actually going to be incorporated in the game. Sadly this was posted by Supercell on April 1, 2017 so that was a dead give away. Even though it was never added into the game, it’s still nice to know that Supercell cares enough about us that they remembered what day is was.
