Arena fights are all basic Clash Royale. If at first they are easy and loss Trophies is very low after a defeat, it changes very quickly. You can very quickly be blocked in an arena as you are unable to string together victories. Do not worry, I know that frustrating feeling where it stagnates in the same number of trophies as soon as you win a fight you lose the one after. With these 6 tips on fighting, I hope to help you climb the rankings!
Do not rush
As I said in my article on tips for start Clash Royale , the key to victory is to coordinate your actions. Send troops as soon as possible is unnecessary and a waste of elixirs against your opponent because any single card can not do much. Take time to think, to analyze the game, understand the deck your opponent and estimate its number of elixir.
For this early in the game, do not send troops before 10 essences. For example, if you send your pig Rider once you have 4 elixirs, your opponent can counter you very easily and take advantage while you lost 4 elixirs. Also, do not place a tower if your opponent has not sent troops because it will just have to wait for it to destroy before attacking. After 10 elixirs, you will have two possibilities:
- Send your troops first: the advantage of this choice is that you will take advantage elixir if your opponent does not play along. Indeed, it will be still stuck at 10 essences. Or send you directly the big expensive troops elixir or you can just send cards to 2-3 elixirs to see what will make your opponent. If you send large cards, follow tip # 3 to have time to earn elixirs and do a combo. The risk of this technique is that your opponent can send cards to address you and thus gain an advantage over the game.
- Wait until your opponent plays: The big advantage of this choice is that you can easily counter your enemy and thus hold sway over him. This is what most players. This can be frustrating but sometimes it is better to wait. I even saw the Clash on TV, the top players do not fight for 1 minute!
During the game, it will also take your time. After understanding the deck your opponent, play strategically. For example, if you play a deck with Knight / Rider pig and your opponent has cards like horde of skelettes, wait until it has used them before sending your card because if you do you counter easily. In addition, defense phase, in stress, it may happen that too many cards are sent both while only one would have been enough. So stay zen and thoughtful!
The management of the elixir is the key
In part, you and your opponent could get the same number of elixirs. What will make the difference between you, so their management. To get the advantage over your opponent, the goal is to win more than him. For this we must not spoil cards and especially try to beat your opponent’s cards with cards that cost less elixir. For example if your opponent plays a horde of gargoyles and you shoot arrows above, you will earn 2 elixirs because the arrows cost only 3 elixirs and the horde 5. By accumulating these gains, you’ll be able to take control of your opponent .
Place your cards wisely
The placement of your cards is also important to win. It must adapt to situations. However, there are still some tips that you must have in mind.
If you play a deck based on tanks (Giant PEKKA, etc.), two options are possible for the card’s investment strategy. It may be interesting to make it appear behind your turns. Indeed, the idea is to take advantage of its slow movement to win elixirs and do a combo with other cards. If you turn your Giant behind your base, you can then combine it with a Witch and a Musketeer before he crosses the bridge. The problem is that your opponent will also have time to defend themselves. If he uses all his elixirs to defend, then you can make a diversion by sending a strong DPS on the other side. However, following a successful defense, it is advisable to show your big cards as close to the border to enjoy your advantage elixir. We must therefore make your choice depending on the situation.
Another tip to avoid losing all your troops in a shot arrow, a fireball or a witch, is to place your troops in a circle around the target. This way, your opponent can not target all your troops together. In defense, it may be interesting to place the remote units behind the tower to protect and use them for cons-attack. In addition, to protect a tower or counter a Knight, it may be useful to place cards at low cost elixirs front of the tower so that the opponent can not attack the tower directly. This is especially important to counter the Knight and his dependents. You can use Skelettes (1 elixir), a witch who calls the skelettes or goblins (2 elixirs).
Concentrate on one turn at a time
The parties are fast and can be very tight to avoid a draw, it is important to focus on one turn at a time. Focus your troops on the one with the lowest point of life. If you have the advantage, you can then play defense to get in the worst case a victory at 1-0. However, there are exceptions. Indeed, it may be interesting to do a split push attacking another round with a Prince or a pig Rider a diversion (see tip No. 5 ). Your opponent can not defend the two towers at the same time.
Some parts can be real battles trenches in which you are unable to pierce the defenses of your opponent. Faced with this situation, the key is to create diversions. For this, please send a tank (eg Géant) or a strong DPS (Prince / Rider pig / Witch / Mini Dragon, etc.) on the other opponent’s turn to create confusion. If the opponent decides to defend the other tower, you will have the opportunity to destroy the first tower. Conversely if the opponent decides not worry about your diversion, then you can destroy the other tower.
Orient the fight on your lap with the most life
To defend effectively, try to always keep the fight to your tower with more life. It can sometimes be difficult to change line when you dominate the opponent. For this, please send a Prince, a giant or a witch as soon as possible on the other tower. If your opponent takes his turn, he must defend, then you can continue to send troops on this tower which will change the side of the front line.
