Balance Changes

Balance Changes - Clash Royale Season 14, August 2020

Balances will be live on Tuesday, August 4, 2020. Discuss on Reddit

Bowler (Rework)

Before After
Sight Range -20% 5 4
Projectile Range +25% 6 7.5
Hit Points +8% 1596 1729
  • Bowler is getting a rework so that he can be a bit more viable in offense, while keeping his strong defensive potential.
  • After the rework, he will be able to reach the opponent’s Princess Tower after crossing the bridge (projectile range).
  • However, he will need to be a bit closer to enemies in order to attack them (sight range).

Spells (Nerf)

Before After
Crown Tower Damage 35% 30%
  • Spells have been the most popular and effective cards in the game since the beginning.
  • The Clash Royale balance team felt that while it’s cool for spells to have healthy use rates, they provide too much value if used to destroy troops next to the opponent’s tower.
  • In recent meta, there has been an unhealthy trend for “Spell Cycle” strategies, which tend to be both stale and frustrating.
  • For these reasons, the team has decided to give a slight reduction to spell damages on crown towers.
  • Going from 35% to 30% is effectively a -14% reduction to crown tower damages.
  • The following spells are affected by this change:
    • Arrows
    • Giant Snowball
    • Fireball
    • Freeze
    • Lightning
    • Poison
    • Rocket
    • The Log
    • Zap
  • Of note, Earthquake and Tornado escaped this nerf and are not affected.

Miner (Nerf)

Before After
Crown Tower Damage 35% 30%
  • Miner is often used for his Crown Tower Damage, which was recently reduced to be in-line with spells (Season 9 Balance Changes)
  • In keeping with the same mechanism as spells, Miner is getting a crown tower damage nerf as well.

Royal Recruits (Buff)

Before After
Damage +8% 101 110
  • Royal Recruits are getting a small damage buff this coming season.
  • After this buff, they will be able to destroy Spear Goblins with 1 hit.

Royal Delivery (Rework)

Before After
Recruit Damage +8% 101 110
Knockback Removed 1 0
  • Royal Delivery has been a jack of all trades with a lot of value when used properly.
  • It hits both ground and air, deals significant damage, spawns a defending troop and retargets troops with knockback.
  • As Royal Recruits are getting a damage buff, Delivery will be getting its knockback removed, and make it a less viable option to answer every single kind of push.

Bats (Nerf)

Before After
Hit Speed +18% 1.1 sec 1.3 sec
DPS -15% 60 51
  • The balance team observed that Bats have been one of the most used cards for a long time given their excellent stats: cheap, fast, high DPS.
  • Their Hit Speed (hit time / time between each hit) will be getting a nerf in the upcoming season because they are getting just a bit too much value for 2 Elixir.
  • The Hit Speed increase will lead to a lower Damage per second (DPS) overall (-15%).

The Log (Nerf)

Before After
Projectile Range -9% 11.1 10.1
  • Similar to Bats, The Log has been a strong leader in Challenge use rates, and often leading far ahead of any other card.
  • The team does not want to touch the only Legendary spell in-game too much, but feel that it would make sense to increase its skill-cap slightly.
  • With this projectile range nerf, players will need to deploy The Log at the very top row of tiles in order to hit the opponent’s tower.

Numbers for damage and hit points denote those of tournament-standard card levels (Level 9).
