The Ultimate Clash Royale Guide For Beginners

Clash Royale is a hugely popular game in India. And it’s nothing like PUBG Mobile or COD Mobile, instead, it’s a card-based strategy game where you take on opponents in 1-v-1 battles. So if you’re used to the action of PUBG Mobile and are planning to try this as well, you might find that the same tricks don’t help you. So we’ve made this beginner-friendly guide for people looking to get started with Clash Royale.

Here are some helpful tips and tricks to ensure you have a fun and thrilling experience starting this game and bag some wins:

1. Balanced Deck

Always keep balanced units in your deck. This will make sure you don’t need to wait for too long for your elixir to refill and you’ll be able to deploy units faster. It will also help you be quick when it comes to launch counter-attacks and defend your tower. A good, balanced deck will be very helpful in keeping your opponent under pressure.

2. Don’t Waste Elixir

The most important thing in Clash Royale is Elixir management. If you’re good at timing your cards and managing Elixir, you can take down your opponent even if your deck is weaker than them. In the beginning of a match, if your opponent is waiting, it might be best for you to wait as well, for your Elixir to fill up to 9 bars before you start placing your units on the field.

But if you’re being attacked, there’s no point in waiting too much because you’ll end up taking a lot of damage on your towers in the meanwhile. That’s why in most situations it’s best to deploy your defensive units as soon as the enemy starts attacking you.

Saving up Elixir won’t help you in every situation, the only thing that will happen is your opponent will be able to deploy more units and recharge his Elixir again, so make sure you don’t let them do that, otherwise they’ll gain a significant number advantage on the field. It’s okay if you’re trying to execute a specific strategy, like baiting your enemy into a trap, but otherwise make sure you make good timely use of the Elixir.

3. Zonal Play

The playing field in Clash Royale has two halves, one for you and the other for your opponent. You may feel like it’s best to place your units as close to the enemy half as possible in the starting, but don’t make that mistake. If your enemy has just deployed a unit and it’s moving towards your half, wait for the right moment. Let it enter your side and then launch a counter-attack. With this you’ll be able to take down the enemy units more easily as your own towers will fire at them too, and you won’t waste any time killing the enemy units.

Similarly, when you’re on the offensive, make sure you don’t activate the enemy king’s tower. It will remain passive until you attack it directly and it won’t shoot your units at all. This will make sure your troops take less damage and be able to put more pressure on the enemy by damaging their towers.

4. Don’t Panic, especially at the end.

Apart from Elixir management and deck building, the most important thing in Clash Royale is to make sure you don’t lose your calm and play with a cool, composed mind. If you panic, you’ll end up making some wrong moves in a hurry and the opponent will be able to take advantage of your mistakes and defeat you.

The probability of this happening is the most once the timer goes below the 1 minute mark, because then the Elixir starts recharging twice as fast. Make sure you don’t put all your units on the offense, and take care of your own towers and focus on their defense as well.

By doing this, you can even turn around a losing game by the time that last 1 minute gets over, because your enemy will try to make sure to do the most amount of damage to your towers and might even let his own towers remain open for attack.

5. Mind Games – Play Your Opponent, Not Just Their Cards

In the middle of the match in Clash Royale, you can use quick chat and reactions as well. You can use these to irritate your opponent, frustrating them into making a rash move. Make sure you don’t cross any limits, and time the reactions well to make sure your enemy loses his focus as being distracted can directly give you an advantage in the game.

Clash Royale Deck Guide for Arenas 1 and 2

Clash Royale has a huge bunch of cards, so it can be a little daunting to figure out which ones are right for your deck. But don’t worry, we’ll help you out. Today we’ll tell you about the must-have cards that all players should be using in the starting arenas.

When you start out in Arena 1, you’ll have access to almost all basic cards using which you can win your early games. The trump card amongst these will be the Giant.

Once you have that in your deck, now you need some cards to assist the Giant and make sure he reaches the enemy towers. For this purpose you can use archers and minions.

While your team is on its way to the enemy tower, it’s also important to have a few defensive cards to ruin your enemy’s plan of taking you down. You should try having a knight to stop the enemy troops, accompanied with the Arrow or Fireball. Arrow and Fireball are good for wiping out lower health units, and can even destroy the tower once its health is low enough. So you should have at least one of these in your deck.

If you have unlocked Hog Rider, you can use him in place of the Giant, or add to your offensive force and keep both in your deck, since Hog Rider is one of the best cards in the game for an offensive strategy.

While deploying your ground troops, you should also send accompanying air units so they can provide support and prevent them from taking a lot of damage. For this, the best card is Baby Dragon, which you unlock once you reach Arena 2.

At this level, it’s important that you start experimenting with your deck. Giant, Archers, Baby and Hog Rider are all great cards for starting out, so you should have them in some combination, as you have more options apart from them. Don’t worry too much about losing, as your aim in the beginning should be to understand your cards and how they can best complement each other.

The more you try different decks, you’ll get a better understanding of what combinations work for you. This way you’ll be able to figure out what lacks in your deck and make changes. And you’ll be able to defeat your opponents with no problems.

One thing you should keep in mind is the Elixir cost. Always keep the Elixir cost between 3.5 to 4 so you have a good mixture of high and low cost cards and you won’t have to wait for too long to use them.

Another important thing is to join a clan. This will give you more experience, gold and cards, and help you progress faster in the game. After a point you’ll be able to play 2 V 2 matches too, so you can partner up with a higher level player and learn from how they play.
