Clash Royale Guide To Draft Challenge

Clash Royale has some fun Challenge modes to keep the players engaged, and one of them is the Draft Challenge. It’s a bit tricky, especially for new players, and getting used to it might take some time. That’s why we’ve prepared a helpful guide to make sure you have a good time in the game. But before we begin, let’s see what the game mode is all about.

What is Draft Challenge?

  • Draft Challenge is a cool mode in Clash Royale where you and your opponent “draft” cards to make your decks from a given choice.
  • Both players start with a choice between two cards where you pick one for yourself and the other is given to the opponent. The process continues until both players have their decks completely built.
  • The cards in the pool are completely random, so beware, you may have to pick cards you don’t like or ones with which you’ve never played before.

Before you start your first draft, you should know one thing: There is no single right way to have a winning draft. It’s all about making choices based on what kind of deck you can create. With that in mind, here are a few tips that should be helpful for you.

Counter Specific Cards

  • There are some cards Clash Royale that can only be countered with specific units. In case your opponent doesn’t have them, they’ll be sure to have a tough time against your deck. Some of these cards are the Ram Rider, Princess, Witch, Balloon, Graveyard, Barrel and Sparky.
  • Another thing you should keep in mind is that whenever you have a choice between picking a certain card and its counter, always pick the counter. That will make sure you have an upper hand in battle. For instance, if the choice for your next card is between Minion Horde and Arrows, you’ll be wise to pick Arrows.

Keep an Eye on the Cards You Don’t Pick

  • Since the card you don’t pick will automatically go to your opponent, be mindful of what you’re giving away. Because in a way, you’re not only building a deck for yourself, but for your opponent as well. And you don’t want them to end up with a better deck than you. This is where the tip to pick counters also helps. If you have an option to pick between a card and its counter, once you pick the counter, the other card will go to the opponent and you’ll automatically have an advantage.

Pick Cards That You Think Will Work Well In General

  • There can a some cards in the pool that will more or less be universally favourable to your deck, no matter what kind of game it ends up being. So if you’re confused between what to choose, go for cards that you think will be helpful regardless of the situation.

Always Have At Least One Spell Card

  • Sometimes you might run into a situation where neither you nor your opponent has good pushing cards in their deck. To make sure that you have something to work for you, it’s good to have some kind of spell that can directly damage the enemy towers or bring their push to a halt. Either way, it’ll make sure you don’t go down easy, even if the game stretches on.

Try To Keep Your Deck Balanced

  • When you start drafting, it’s possible to be tempted to pick cards that you like or ones with which you’re used to playing. That’s a huge mistake because there’s no telling what the picks are going to be right off the bat. That’s why, instead of focusing on a specific kind of build, you should try to keep your deck as balanced as possible.
  • Try to keep the Elixir cost at a manageable level, trying to have a good balance between offensive and defensive cards.

Don’t Take A Loss Too Hard

Draft Challenge is as much about luck as it is about making good decisions. And sometimes, you might have a situation where the pool of cards you get is so bad that no matter what kind of cards you pick, you end up with a losing deck. And this can happen to the best of players, so if you end up losing, learn from your mistakes and try to do better in the next game.

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.

These were our 5 top tips for beginners to help them get started with Clash Royale. If you found these helpful, be sure to check back regularly for more guides for all your favourite games, from PUBG Mobile to COD Mobile, Clash Royale, Garena Free Fire and more!

Top 5 Clash Royale Tips & Tricks to Help You Win

Clash Royale is a very competitive game around building a good deck and being quick enough to make decisions based on a bit of randomness and correct predictions. Here are few Clash Royale tips to help you get better at the game.

Deck Building

The most important part of the game that can win you games against people whom you thought you had no chance against. A smart deck that is balanced and plays to your strength will be extremely more beneficial to you than just having a random assortment of strong cards. Keep experimenting with your deck and always remember to keep it balanced. You’ll want every deck of yours to have at least one of the following cards: Low Elixir Ground Troop, Ranged Troop, High-Hitpoint Troop, Flying Troop, Damage-Causing Spell and a troop for Countering.

Initial Tactics

Once the match starts, assess your cards and determine whether or not you want to go on the offensive. Always going on the offensive is not a smart move so quickly assess the situation and if you think waiting for your opening and countering is a better move then do that. While there is luck involved in the game, there is also a lot of strategy and quick thinking required that can help you turn the tide in your favour.

Read Your Opponent

Pay attention to the cards your opponent uses and watch for patterns. This can lead to both, great offensive moves and defensive counters both which the opponent might not expect. Pay attention to the meta of the game which will help you understand your opponent’s moves and deck. If you time your troop deployment correctly based on correct predictions, the opponent will be caught off-guard, giving you the advantage.

Attack in Pairs

Sending in a lone troop to attack the enemy can lead to failures in most cases so try to send at least another one to assist them. One good strategy is to drop a troop at the back the arena and wait for them to make their way into enemy territory while your elixir charges up and you can also see how the enemy reacts to your troop deployment, and once they cross the bridge, you can send in support to assist them.

Watch and Learn

Watch people on Youtube and take note of their decks and strategize. Copying their decks is a good start to understanding how they play but make sure to make changes to it because many other players will also be using their deck if they’re famous. Other than that, make sure to watch your own old matches to see where you made mistakes, where you predicted wrong and to see how you can improve.

Those are a few tips to help you improve at the game that will take some time and patience but if you keep at it, you will be getting better sooner than later.

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.

If you’re already confident about your skills in the game, download the GamingMonk app and take part in our Clash Royale tournaments.
