Summer 2018 Update #2

June 19, 2018 · 4 min read

update

Summer update is coming very soon! It will include many quality-of-life changes and two new cards. In this post, we will talk about the new emotes, improvements on the 1v1 Arena Battles, the much improved gold economy, and many drastic improvements to the clan wars.

New cards

Check out card interactions and card stats about the two new cards — Giant Snowball and Royal Hogsin our first update

New emotes

  • Goblin and Princess Emotes are here!
  • Pick them up from the Shop and craft your Emote Deck
  • New emotes will be added regularly (Clash Royale is aiming to add them every week!)
  • Emotes will be available in the shop and will cost $3 (USD) for a pack of 4

New emotes

1v1 Arena Battles

  • League Resets are -50% trophies, up to a max of 5800. All players over 7600 will end up at 5800

    • e.g. a 5000 Trophy player will be reset to 4500
    • This new, more gradual system will give everyone playing 1v1 Arena Battles a better time when the League Season resets each month!
  • 1v1 Arena Battles (aka Ladder) above 4000 Trophies will now have 3min Sudden Death like Challenges.

    • The goal here is to make a singular meta in Challenges / top Ladder.
    • Players should not need to have two versions of the same archetype because of minor rules disparities.
  • Unlock order of cards throughout the Arenas has been rearranged, for the following reasons:

    • To create Arenas where cards complement each other mechanically
    • Ensure there are always answers to win conditions within an Arena
    • Move low use rate, spicy cards to later Arenas
    • Where possible, match cards thematically to their Arena
    • Each new Arena will introduce new or unique mechanics

Much improved gold/reward economy

  • Gold rewards DOUBLED (includes War Chest and Clan Wars Victory Gold)

  • Silver, Gold, Giant, Magical and Crown Chests now contain less Commons, but more Rares, more Epics and a lot more gold!

The issues the Clash Royale team is addressing is the disparity of rarities — specifically the non-legendary ones at this point — that has largely led to things like overleveling of commons with rares and epics dragging on far behind. The other thing is the gold rewards particularly in relation to the amount of cards you get.

So far the idea has been to address these heavily with new features and while the team has done it, it is now blatantly clear that it hasn’t been enough and it never will be unless the dev team touches the basic chests in the game and the regular core chest cycle and crown chest.

There are changes to the following chests:

  • Crown Chest: less commons, more rares, higher epic chance, a lot more gold

  • Silver Chest: More cards, 2 guaranteed rares in Legendary Arena, more gold (also to distinct it better from Free Chest)

  • Gold Chest: less commons, more rares, a lot more gold

  • Magical Chest: less commons and rares, double epics

  • Giant Chest: triple gold

Basically it’s about giving more distinction to the chests while addressing the rarity disparity and adding more gold to the core game.

  • Free Chest remains unchanged

  • Super Magical Chest remains unchanged

  • In Clan Wars ALL gold rewards are doubled!

    • Clan Wars Season Chests have doubled gold rewards

    • Victory Gold in all Clan Wars Leagues are doubled

    • Note: Victory Gold for Ladder matches are not doubled. The double victory gold applies to Clan Wars battles only.

You can also expect the event economy with e.g. special challenges to be improved.

Clan Wars

  • New Clan War Collections - your clan will be guaranteed to have 2 damage Spells (prior it was possible to get only 1), and you will be guaranteed multiple cards from low arenas so any new player should be able to make a reasonable deck

  • New Draft Tables - the drafting has been updated to include more new cards, less random choices, and decks should be a bit more cohesive than before. Gone are the days of PEKKA vs. Clone choices.

  • Classic Deck Battles in Clan Wars means there will always be a tournament standard mode available, either Classic Decks or Draft. These decks will also be updated over time as we watch the win rates and meta. Let the community know we are watching for feedback and will make changes as needed

  • Gold rewards DOUBLED (includes War Chest and Victory Gold)

  • Rewatch your Clan’s War Day battles

  • Spectate the enemy Clans’ War Day battles (tap “LIVE” on their boat)

  • Tap on an enemy Clan from the War Leaderboard to check them out

  • Social tab lights up gold while you still have your War Day battle left to do

  • Players who miss their War Day battle see a popup reminder

  • Copy your War Deck to your Battle Deck

  • New Collection Day game modes to keep things fresh!
