Balance Changes

Balance Changes - Clash Royale Season 13, June 2020

Balances will be live on Tuesday, July 7, 2020. Discuss on Reddit

Fisherman (Buff)

Before After
Anchor Charge Up Speed -13% 1.5 sec 1.3 sec
Hit Speed -13% 1.5 sec 1.3 sec
DPS +15% 105 123
  • Fisherman’s usage rate has been low in recent seasons, and the Clash Royale balance team wishes to give him a nudge.
  • By focusing on what makes the card unique — his pulling mechanic — the updated Fisherman will charge his anchor faster while gaining higher DPS (Damage Per Second).

Zappies (Rework v2)

Before After
Damage +14% 84 96
Hit Speed +5% 2 sec 2.1 sec
DPS +9% 42 46
  • Zappies got a rework in Season 8 but their usage remains low.
  • By increasing their damage, they will now be able to 2-hit minions.
  • Their slower Hit Speed makes them less likely to get into “stun-locking” when you play against them.
  • The combination of the damage increase and lower hit speed results in an overall DPS increase.

Skeleton Dragons (Nerf)

Before After
Damage -6% 142 133
  • Overall, the Clash Royale team is happy with this newly released card.
  • But Skeleton Dragons’ high Win Rates and Use Rates suggest that a nerf is in order. (This Dragon Duo has higher WR and UR than Fireball in challenges)
  • Reducing their damage will require 1 more hit to kill a Barbarian.

Firecracker (Nerf)

Before After
Pushback Distance -25% 2.0 1.5
  • Firecracker is a great counter to melee troops. Her ability to push herself away from troops that she is attacking makes her one of the most challenging cards to deal with.
  • She is getting a pushback nerf, which should allow her to keep her unique mechanism while giving melee troops a chance to hit her back.
  • In a recent poll that we ran, 80% of the users who voted found Firecracker to be the most annoying card in the game. (Note: the balance team did not make this change based on this poll. We mentioned our poll here mainly to show that players also feel that a nerf is deserved.)
  • We know that that the Firecracker nerf will make SaintBelikin a very happy man.
