  • Too many cards without counters Dec 1, 2020

    By not good app badd
    This game is super fun and the pacing works really well for a mobile game, however recently I have been getting frustrated in my games due to a few reasons. The first and main one is that there are sooooo many cards that are in the game now that counter almost everything, and even on the flip side if you build the right push it is actually impossible to stop or counter. This is a huge issue because I can play well the entire game and maybe even have the upper hand, but as soon as 2x elixir starts I don’t even have a chance. This is extremely infuriating. The next issue is the match making, which often can give you a completely imbalanced matchup. This is due to the fact that your rank on the ladder has no dependence on your level in game. And if you are a higher level than your opponent then you have an extreme upper hand. Your towers have more health and even deal more damage to oncoming troops. This creates an extremely favorable equilibrium on the field and it is very difficult to even touch the other side of the river. Not to mention that if you are a higher level your probably have higher level cards which also comes with a multitude of advantages. So many of which it is hard to address them all. Overall the game is good and super entertaining, I just hope they at some point rework the matchmaking system, and remove some of the crazy imbalanced cards.

    If there was only one thing about this game that I had to say about this game, it would be that it was made for anyone who was interested, which is pretty much everybody. I’m talking from the competitive to the casual, from the nerds to the trolls, from money boosters to the free to players. I’m talking everybody, and as a matter of fact, there are so many cards that are similar to one another but differ by just a little just so that you can find some comfortability. A way I would show this is with skeletons, goblins, and guards as they each vary in strength from the least to greatest but each costing 1,2, and 3 elixer respectively. Another one like the mortar is something to cycle, but the X-bow is more agro. And all 98 cards are so unique to where there isn’t a meta where one card power creeps the other. What’s better is that no other game does this, but it has appealed to every person in the audience just yet. There are some cards I would like to see, other cards that other people want to see, and some changes that are requested. This is why this game is still being worked on. If Supercell could find some way to work in the Boom Cannon from Boom Beach into the game or anything similar to where it could 3 shot a golem, that would be insane. Thing is, if everyone still isn’t satisfied, then the game need more work. This is how one gets closer to a perfect game, and we’ve got to be close to it by now.

    I haven’t played as long as other people. I have only played when the battle healer and the heal spell was out. I think that this game is a great game and it has made a lot of progress. Everything is thought out. I do have a couple of concerns. 1: I would like better match making. This has always been a problem in the past. It is a lot better now since a couple of years ago. The problem is I keep getting paired of with people that are level 9. I would like the match making to be the same level and skill level or as close as possible to that. 2: I really have trouble with the mega night. He is not really a strategic card. There is also no card that can take him out. It would be nice if u could nerf the mega night or buff a couple of cards for a positive elixir trade. 3: Make some of the challenge continues a little cheaper. I just played the double draft and when I lost it was 50 GEMS. That is way to many gems. Another thing is if you don’t have money to spend on the game to get gems it is really hard to rack them up. Only SOMETIMES you get them in gold chests. It would be cool if I could gem more gems without playing challenges or paying for them. Other than that this is the best game I have downloaded in my life. In my opinion it is up there with Roblox and Call of Duty. One of the best games out there. I hope this review really helps. HAVE A GOOD SUMMER!

    So in Clash of Clans has a super .P.E.K.K.A I think that u should make a super mini is a mini P.E.K.K.A but is different is super is like it but it will be a legendary but when it dies it explodes like the lightning spell and when u use it stayes in ur deck and u press it again it self destruct or the first super he can be a different rarity like super legendary idk if u want to but pls read this or think about it cause it might be a good idea and when the super P.E.K.K.A is self destruct it make a mini super or super mini how u want to call it and if it’s maxed u can put the power it can go stronger or it strikes or something like a power something ex:the super mini can turn to a super P.E.K.K.A.idk and if u do like where I’m goin then there’s more but the down side of it to not make it to op it has low health and when it hits if u want or not it doesn’t strike lightning or it does but does not effectively and is not like the zap it stops what there doing but the damage is a beast and when u level up it can sometimes when he gets attaked the damage is lower or don’t take the damage only for that one hit and the art I have not made but u can do that thanks for reading and if u do think at least I try to give y’all a good plan for some day or so but if u do add it than thank u so much and ur welcome if this works or does something and might give other card ideas or something like that.

    Unlike most games on the App Store, this one has a clear identity of being made to be a quality game rather than an ad generator. Supercell is truly a development team that earns my complete respect. The game is 100% playable without spending money and although spending can garner advantages it never is truly pay to win. You can not spend a single dime on this game and manage to have fun and at the core of a game I think that’s what it’s all about. But on top of that, it’s all the small things. This game is very fun, always adding change, new cards, metas, modes, you name it. Additionally, Supercell does not get the respect they deserve for their immaculate servers. They’re as close to flawless as you can get in the modern day. Instantly I’m in a match, with no latency or frame skips due to servers, but if happening due to poor internet connection. I truly support this team for the simple fact their games are well thought out, cared for, updated, and aren’t made to simply just splurge off of the user playing via ads or making a paywall. For that reason, I occasionally make it a point to spend money on this game even when I don’t have to. Because I want to show my appreciation for such a great game in a mobile market that’s encompassed by developers being successful by throwing together a piece of crap to make money. Keep up the great work supercell
  • Cool game Oct 20, 2021

    By wmthomasgaming
    I’ve played this game for a while, and I’ve enjoyed it, but there are a few things I feel should be addressed. First off, remove or nerf electro giant. It has exactly two good counters, and they only counter it with perfect placement. Some cards are ok at countering it (like pekka) but they still let it get a ton of damage on the tower. Second, I know this is how supercell makes money, but there are way too many people who blow their life savings on the game. It gives them a ridiculously unfair advantage. This is tied hand in hand with people having overleveled cards - a king level 10 doesn’t deserve to have three max level cards, especially if all his other cards are level 9 or 10. Aside from these issues, the game is very engaging, and it gives you an opportunity to earn rewards if you play just a few games per day. It’s a perfect game to play if you have a short break - for example, switching between classes. It always gives you something to strive for, and supercell adds new cards occasionally, which completely changes the strategy of the game. Whenever a new card is added, I generally try to use it in a deck to see what it works well with, and if I like it, I keep the new deck. Your strategy always changes based on what cards you and your opponent are using, and I like that. Overall, it’s a great game that doesn’t take too much time out of your schedule - well done, supercell.
  • I loved this game until... May 19, 2021

    By Zelta1234
    I liked the game back in 2018 but now it's garbage. Why may you ask why? The main reason is because match making is broken. Imagine fighting a higher level then you are with 300+ more HP, and DMG. Doesn't seem fair at all and it needs to be fix! It needs to be where you can only fight with your level. Essentially how the game works is that the amount of time and effort you take in playing this game comes out as your level. More time more Xp, is how the game works if you play it normally. So a level 12 shouldn't up with a level 13 because the xp difference between 12 and 13 is significant. I don't remember but it's expensive get to level 13. I want to even dare say that no one has a maxed account without any money being spent. It's how difficult the game really is. However I do love the graphics, there crispy and animated well. Also this barely takes much space and for me not much cellular data is being used. I love draft mode because it's random and makes things actually skilled based. Some modes are good some are meh but most of them are fun for awhile. I recommend playing for a year or two before you get tired of playing it. It seems fun at first but once you it your end point where you can't gain much trophies anymore it kinda get pointless. I don't like how you get into another challenger and feel like nothing has happened. It seems good at first but once you reach that point it gets boring.
  • Buff the Lava Hound Oct 19, 2020

    By ESESGNST
    Hey I want to start off and say I love the game. It is just so creative and fun and addictive. I really enjoy playing. Now, personally my favorite card is the Lava Hound and I do see quite a lot of people use it, maybe not professionally, but for skirmishes and side play. I’ve also played Clash of Clans and I saw that the Lava Hound (CC) deals a pretty good amount of death damage, for what it can't do in regular damage, but the Lava Hound mama (CR) does no death damage which I don’t understand because it’s a flying golem and probably has one of the worst regular damage for a tower attacker and the lava pups they do an ok amount of damage but have like no health. Now you could argue that, what it can’t do in damage it makes up in HP, this is correct but there’s a problem, it’s a legendary card meaning that it’s SUPPOSED to be better than most other cards, but the Lava Hound might as well be labeled an epic or rare. I and many people would appreciate if the Lava hound got some extra love. I would like to suggest either the Lava Hound mama or Lava pups death damage and raise the Lava Hound mama ranged attack so that it can live up to the legendary title otherwise it’s just a heavy card that only works for a decoy or goes good with the clone spell. Please fix this because again me and many people would appreciate the Lava Hound getting some extra love.

  • Great game everyone should play, but flawed. Jan 14, 2021

    By stoptakingmynameshenk
    This game is fun and you cannot deny that ever. But, my problem is that even with the update of battle pass and such, I still do not own all the cards I’m suppose to own, which means I cannot optimize my decks because I do not own certain cards from lower ranks. But my main annoyance with the game is that at higher trophies, I’m constantly fighting people way higher leveled than me. These higher leveled players not only have cards I do not have, but their cards that I do have are higher leveled, so even if we play the same cards, I still lose. On top of all that, the higher leveled players have more health on their towers. So I’m literally at a disadvantage in 3 different ways. This game is incredibly fun, but being level 8 and constantly fighting lvl 11-12s is incredibly annoying. What am I suppose to do if a guy plays the exact same deck as me, but he has higher leveled cards? His card will beat mine even if they’re the exact same card... and I have to literally do more damage than him to win... even though he has better cards than me.. whether that be because he owns cards I don’t have, or because they’re higher leveled.. It’s honestly the most annoying thing I’ve ever seen. Regardless, you should play this game. I just hope the playing field is more even. I should not be punished for going to higher trophies at lower levels.

    I remember how I used to play this game years ago, it was so fun! I couldn't stop playing. But now, the only thing this game causes you is anger because it's all pay to win. And that's why no one plays this game anymore and it's horrible. I can't find a game where my opponent has everything maxed and I struggle to win so hard but I can't with my lvl 11 cards. It is very sad seeing the game you grew up with slowly dying. I hope from all my heart SUPERCELL sees this review and 'revive' the game.

    King level 14 is a greedy cash grab. I have been a loyal player of this game for over five years. I have bought the pass almost every season since it came out as it felt like a small price to pay for the game that I got so much out of. I was finally in a place where I didn't feel like I had to grind to have fun. And now it's right back to the grind. I have to max every one of my cards again. 100k more gold for each card and 20 legendaries and 200 epics all again. I'm done.

    I have been playing this game for a long while. The new update adding another card level is not an update but a clear and disgusting attemp at getting (a lot of) money out of players without adding any new value to the game. This together with the balancing in recent times makes it almost impossible to recommend and it gets more likely I will stop playing this game for good.

    This game could have been wonderful. Beautiful graphics fun characters and lore, but supercell ruined things. The game is pay to win and thwre is no work around. The math has been done and is readily available just with a simple Google search. To play the game as intended without spending a dollar it would take you around 22 YEARS to max your account. With spending money it costs an average of 16 THOUSAND us DOLLARS. Supercell has ruined this game and I strongly recommend to you not to play it.

    I have played this game since launch. Whilst I've disagreed with some of the changes supercell have made I've never been as outraged as today. They are adding level 14 to the game, which means thousands will have to be spent to max your account. This lazy cash grabbing update isn't the worst part. They'll be releasing the update soon after the Slash Royale event, which means they wanted the player base to spend all their books, gold and cards so they will be forced to spend money for the update.

    Been playing this game for years, used to love it. But I just can't support it after level 14 was announced. They had a huge event which gave us tons of gold, and held off on announcing level 14 until after everyone spent that gold, so we'll be forced to buy gold with actual money for level 14. They actually scammed us.

    Supercell management continues to completely ignore all community suggestions and adds cash grab after cash grab. The game is still salvageable, but I might have to stop playing, simply because it isn't very fun unless you're paying hundreds of dollars(CAD) a year. Edit: The game concept/style plays very much like a fast paced board game mixed with a video game, which I like the most about Clash Royale. However, after not enough new things to keep me engaged consistently, I've just been bored

    The only way this game could be more toxic is if they added an in-game chat feature. In addition to the game's matchmaking algorithm, after one or two wins, will match you with players that can directly counter your deck. Weather or not you shuffle you deck is pointless. You can only win continuous games and progress is if you have the disposable income to spend on upgrades, legendary cards, and chests.

    I've been playing this game for close to 6 years and it's always been terrible for F2P players, but at least we were not scammed by the devs... until now. They just released a 50% discount event (knew it sounded too good to be true) and everyone used their Gold, Tokens and Books to upgrade cards they don't use often. After a few days they decide to announce that the max level will increase to 14! Now we don't have any resources left to upgrade our main deck and are stuck facing lvl 14 on ladder

    Played this game for 2 years, enjoyed every single bit of it, until matchmaking made me take a break. Came back after a few years, completely different game. Managed to get to lvl 13 a few months ago and now they want to implement lvl 14. Definitely a bad idea and seems super greedy. Matchmaking alone is enough to stress someone out. Now imagine matchmaking plus having to grind out more years after finally maxing most of your stuff out. Seems like a cash grab. Super dissapointed in this decision

  • Too many cards without counters Dec 1, 2020

    By not good app badd
    This game is super fun and the pacing works really well for a mobile game, however recently I have been getting frustrated in my games due to a few reasons. The first and main one is that there are sooooo many cards that are in the game now that counter almost everything, and even on the flip side if you build the right push it is actually impossible to stop or counter. This is a huge issue because I can play well the entire game and maybe even have the upper hand, but as soon as 2x elixir starts I don’t even have a chance. This is extremely infuriating. The next issue is the match making, which often can give you a completely imbalanced matchup. This is due to the fact that your rank on the ladder has no dependence on your level in game. And if you are a higher level than your opponent then you have an extreme upper hand. Your towers have more health and even deal more damage to oncoming troops. This creates an extremely favorable equilibrium on the field and it is very difficult to even touch the other side of the river. Not to mention that if you are a higher level your probably have higher level cards which also comes with a multitude of advantages. So many of which it is hard to address them all. Overall the game is good and super entertaining, I just hope they at some point rework the matchmaking system, and remove some of the crazy imbalanced cards.

    If there was only one thing about this game that I had to say about this game, it would be that it was made for anyone who was interested, which is pretty much everybody. I’m talking from the competitive to the casual, from the nerds to the trolls, from money boosters to the free to players. I’m talking everybody, and as a matter of fact, there are so many cards that are similar to one another but differ by just a little just so that you can find some comfortability. A way I would show this is with skeletons, goblins, and guards as they each vary in strength from the least to greatest but each costing 1,2, and 3 elixer respectively. Another one like the mortar is something to cycle, but the X-bow is more agro. And all 98 cards are so unique to where there isn’t a meta where one card power creeps the other. What’s better is that no other game does this, but it has appealed to every person in the audience just yet. There are some cards I would like to see, other cards that other people want to see, and some changes that are requested. This is why this game is still being worked on. If Supercell could find some way to work in the Boom Cannon from Boom Beach into the game or anything similar to where it could 3 shot a golem, that would be insane. Thing is, if everyone still isn’t satisfied, then the game need more work. This is how one gets closer to a perfect game, and we’ve got to be close to it by now.
  • Clash’s growth rate May 20, 2021

    By Cameron Fairbanks
    I haven’t played as long as other people. I have only played when the battle healer and the heal spell was out. I think that this game is a great game and it has made a lot of progress. Everything is thought out. I do have a couple of concerns. 1: I would like better match making. This has always been a problem in the past. It is a lot better now since a couple of years ago. The problem is I keep getting paired of with people that are level 9. I would like the match making to be the same level and skill level or as close as possible to that. 2: I really have trouble with the mega night. He is not really a strategic card. There is also no card that can take him out. It would be nice if u could nerf the mega night or buff a couple of cards for a positive elixir trade. 3: Make some of the challenge continues a little cheaper. I just played the double draft and when I lost it was 50 GEMS. That is way to many gems. Another thing is if you don’t have money to spend on the game to get gems it is really hard to rack them up. Only SOMETIMES you get them in gold chests. It would be cool if I could gem more gems without playing challenges or paying for them. Other than that this is the best game I have downloaded in my life. In my opinion it is up there with Roblox and Call of Duty. One of the best games out there. I hope this review really helps. HAVE A GOOD SUMMER!

    So in Clash of Clans has a super .P.E.K.K.A I think that u should make a super mini is a mini P.E.K.K.A but is different is super is like it but it will be a legendary but when it dies it explodes like the lightning spell and when u use it stayes in ur deck and u press it again it self destruct or the first super he can be a different rarity like super legendary idk if u want to but pls read this or think about it cause it might be a good idea and when the super P.E.K.K.A is self destruct it make a mini super or super mini how u want to call it and if it’s maxed u can put the power it can go stronger or it strikes or something like a power something ex:the super mini can turn to a super P.E.K.K.A.idk and if u do like where I’m goin then there’s more but the down side of it to not make it to op it has low health and when it hits if u want or not it doesn’t strike lightning or it does but does not effectively and is not like the zap it stops what there doing but the damage is a beast and when u level up it can sometimes when he gets attaked the damage is lower or don’t take the damage only for that one hit and the art I have not made but u can do that thanks for reading and if u do think at least I try to give y’all a good plan for some day or so but if u do add it than thank u so much and ur welcome if this works or does something and might give other card ideas or something like that.

    Unlike most games on the App Store, this one has a clear identity of being made to be a quality game rather than an ad generator. Supercell is truly a development team that earns my complete respect. The game is 100% playable without spending money and although spending can garner advantages it never is truly pay to win. You can not spend a single dime on this game and manage to have fun and at the core of a game I think that’s what it’s all about. But on top of that, it’s all the small things. This game is very fun, always adding change, new cards, metas, modes, you name it. Additionally, Supercell does not get the respect they deserve for their immaculate servers. They’re as close to flawless as you can get in the modern day. Instantly I’m in a match, with no latency or frame skips due to servers, but if happening due to poor internet connection. I truly support this team for the simple fact their games are well thought out, cared for, updated, and aren’t made to simply just splurge off of the user playing via ads or making a paywall. For that reason, I occasionally make it a point to spend money on this game even when I don’t have to. Because I want to show my appreciation for such a great game in a mobile market that’s encompassed by developers being successful by throwing together a piece of crap to make money. Keep up the great work supercell
  • Buff the Lava Hound Oct 19, 2020

    By ESESGNST
    Hey I want to start off and say I love the game. It is just so creative and fun and addictive. I really enjoy playing. Now, personally my favorite card is the Lava Hound and I do see quite a lot of people use it, maybe not professionally, but for skirmishes and side play. I’ve also played Clash of Clans and I saw that the Lava Hound (CC) deals a pretty good amount of death damage, for what it can't do in regular damage, but the Lava Hound mama (CR) does no death damage which I don’t understand because it’s a flying golem and probably has one of the worst regular damage for a tower attacker and the lava pups they do an ok amount of damage but have like no health. Now you could argue that, what it can’t do in damage it makes up in HP, this is correct but there’s a problem, it’s a legendary card meaning that it’s SUPPOSED to be better than most other cards, but the Lava Hound might as well be labeled an epic or rare. I and many people would appreciate if the Lava hound got some extra love. I would like to suggest either the Lava Hound mama or Lava pups death damage and raise the Lava Hound mama ranged attack so that it can live up to the legendary title otherwise it’s just a heavy card that only works for a decoy or goes good with the clone spell. Please fix this because again me and many people would appreciate the Lava Hound getting some extra love.
  • Awesome game May 5, 2019

    By x0010x
    Love the game although I could not get my old account back:/ started over and it’s still great, however the new update makes it so easy to get trophies that I keep facing level 12 and level 13 people... I’m only level 10. The thing about that is the difference between level 10 and level 12 is at least a year of gameplay or a bunch of money I would rather the old style where you lost a lot more trophies when you lose. I think it’s awesome how y’all have made it to where it’s not Necessarily a pay to win game anymore but it is also very frustrating playing against people with level 13 troops when my strongest is level 11... this is not a complaint bc this is the only mobile game I play. I just get tired of people with 5 level 13 troops talking trash. Would much rather be matched against pple my level. Ps. Y’all know the emojis or whatever they are called in the game are just straight disrespectful 😂. I get and appreciate the trophy system but maybe have the matchmaking find people the same level I know I’m not the only level 10 with this problem. With all that being said any level 12 still in the league I’m in is complete garbage and I think they should have to face people their own level. Recommend to anybody looking for a fun challenging game though.
  • Why do people complain about this game so much May 7, 2020

    By Oh_boi_1_star_reviews_are_dumb
    Ok i’ve seen the common complaint for this game being that its pay to win or that everyone uses overpowered cards to win. First of all no its not a pay to win game at all yes paying will give you advantages sometimes, But if you had any game sense you’d be able to see as long as you play the game somewhat consistently you’ll also have high level cards and be able to push trophies easily it isn’t hard you guys are just lazy and aren’t willing to put the effort. And then for the people who complain about cards being overpowered they aren’t. There is balance changes every month to balance out cards. Common ones I see everywhere are that Mega Knight and Hog Rider are unfair and op, first of all every card has a counter for example Mega Knight can easily be countered by barbarians if you place them around him and not in front of him which is a common mistake. And hog rider can get killed by any swarm card or tank killer for example a mini pekka can kill him in one or two swings with help from the princess tower. So the game is actually really well balanced, its really fun to play especially if you make a clan with your friends. This game is great and doesn’t deserve hate from people who are to lazy to put effort to get better
  • Really great and fun game but... Jan 7, 2018

    By attackhelocopter229
    Ok, so right of the bat I want to say that this is SUCH A FUN GAME for so many reasons and I’m just suggesting same changes to make it even better. First off, you should be able to change your name more than once, maybe two or three times. Say you change your name and you immediately think of a better name. Maybe a child changes his name to something inappropriate and he or she can’t change it back. There are many more scenarios. Another thing is the cancel button needs fixing, I have a 2v2 deck and a ladder deck and I cannot say how many times that I’ve swiped and accidentally pressed the 1v1 battle button with my 2v2 deck and get completely destroyed. One last suggestion I have is to decrease silver and golden chests’ unlock times, those chests take way too long to unclock for the amount of cards they give. I understand you can gem the chests but you run out of gems at a certain point and I’m not really the type to spend money on a game. Anyway, Clash Royale is my favorite mobile game and one of my favorite games in general, the things I talked about are just some major things that should be tweaked or fixed, anyway I hope the developers see this and at least take in account of what I’ve said. Thanks for reading!
  • Cool game Oct 20, 2021

    By wmthomasgaming
    I’ve played this game for a while, and I’ve enjoyed it, but there are a few things I feel should be addressed. First off, remove or nerf electro giant. It has exactly two good counters, and they only counter it with perfect placement. Some cards are ok at countering it (like pekka) but they still let it get a ton of damage on the tower. Second, I know this is how supercell makes money, but there are way too many people who blow their life savings on the game. It gives them a ridiculously unfair advantage. This is tied hand in hand with people having overleveled cards - a king level 10 doesn’t deserve to have three max level cards, especially if all his other cards are level 9 or 10. Aside from these issues, the game is very engaging, and it gives you an opportunity to earn rewards if you play just a few games per day. It’s a perfect game to play if you have a short break - for example, switching between classes. It always gives you something to strive for, and supercell adds new cards occasionally, which completely changes the strategy of the game. Whenever a new card is added, I generally try to use it in a deck to see what it works well with, and if I like it, I keep the new deck. Your strategy always changes based on what cards you and your opponent are using, and I like that. Overall, it’s a great game that doesn’t take too much time out of your schedule - well done, supercell.
  • Great game everyone should play, but flawed. Jan 14, 2021

    By stoptakingmynameshenk
    This game is fun and you cannot deny that ever. But, my problem is that even with the update of battle pass and such, I still do not own all the cards I’m suppose to own, which means I cannot optimize my decks because I do not own certain cards from lower ranks. But my main annoyance with the game is that at higher trophies, I’m constantly fighting people way higher leveled than me. These higher leveled players not only have cards I do not have, but their cards that I do have are higher leveled, so even if we play the same cards, I still lose. On top of all that, the higher leveled players have more health on their towers. So I’m literally at a disadvantage in 3 different ways. This game is incredibly fun, but being level 8 and constantly fighting lvl 11-12s is incredibly annoying. What am I suppose to do if a guy plays the exact same deck as me, but he has higher leveled cards? His card will beat mine even if they’re the exact same card... and I have to literally do more damage than him to win... even though he has better cards than me.. whether that be because he owns cards I don’t have, or because they’re higher leveled.. It’s honestly the most annoying thing I’ve ever seen. Regardless, you should play this game. I just hope the playing field is more even. I should not be punished for going to higher trophies at lower levels.
  • Really fun but has kinks Dec 13, 2017

    By HungruBum
    I’ve been playing this game for a couple of years and I’ve always enjoyed it. However even though they have improved much about it, it still has some key issues that hinders the game from being even more enjoyable. The main thing that has always bothered me is getting matched up again players that are higher level; even though they may be in the same arena, playing against players at a higher level automatically puts you at a disadvantage. Facing an opponent that is only one lever high is not too bad but countless times I’ve went against people who were 2 or 3 levels higher than me. So they have a higher hp for their towers and usually higher level cards, so that has always bothered me since that affects the outcome to many battles. The second thing that bothers me is in 2v2 battles when your teammate leaves halfway, you’re guaranteed to lose. There is no way you could win against 2 players. I know there’s practically no way to prevent people from leaving but if there was some type of penalty for rage quitting and leaving a teammate stranded I feel that would be appropriate. That’s just one suggestion to improve that aspect. Overall there’s a reason why I’ve been playing for so long. It’s super fun but like I said there are things keeping it from being even better and possibly moving the game to the #1 strategy game in the AppStore.
  • Prefer Clash of Clans legendary cards to hard to get! Dec 28, 2017

    By UTmissionary7
    I have been a big fan of Supercell for a long time. I’ve been playing clash of clans for over 3.5 years as well as clash royal. With updates like the builder base to clash of clans it has honestly kept me more interested in playing COC over royal. My main lack of interest in keeping up with clash royal is that the legendary cards are more of a luck of the draw to receiving vs. something I feel I have more control of obtaining. I’ve played a while and have still never gotten cards I could have received at lower levels. I guess that alone keeps some of the interest down. I like that if I really want to get a certain character in clash of clans there is a very clear process that I can work to get that character and improve them. With Royal I can request cards from people in my clan to upgrade faster but I still may not get a cards I haven’t received yet and have no way to change that. I do like games that are a little unpredictable and use chance but it’s frustrating that on my end I can’t do anything to get certain cards I’ve always wanted. I guess that had kept me from being an active player regularly with royal as compared to clash of clans that I probably have plaid almost daily for 3.5 years and have been really happy with the updates that have come out, it’s without a doubt my favorite phone game!
  • Good update; suggestions Jun 28, 2019

    By Wolfxø
    So I played Clash Royale basically the first year it was out. And I loved the game and the unique troops. After a while, I got to Arena 7 and was just bored with the game. It just became this pay to win type of game, and gems were super hard to get. Just recently, I got back into it and played enough to get to Arena 8. The newer troops are cool, but they just don’t seem as unique anymore. Also, gems are still hard to get, and when you do get them, it’s only like 5 gems. Now, I must say, the update in April that makes sure we don’t drop arenas is my favorite update. I’m so happy now because I don’t have to worry about losing too much. I can just play, and yeah I may lose trophies, but I still get to stay in my arena. So that’s great, especially for players who aren’t the best at the game. Another suggestion of mine is to not make chests more expensive as you advance in arenas. It’s unfair considering the fact that the only way to get a large quantity of gems is to pay. One last thing, and it’s not necessarily for the game, but for the players. I think you guys should have a contest for a new troop that players get to create. Maybe have a hashtag that allows players to create a troop, and the most likes gets their troop added? I think it would help greatly with the lack of uniqueness in newer troops. Overall, Clash Royale is a game I hope becomes better.
  • Good app, despite what people think, not pay to win Jul 6, 2019

    By OhStepBro69
    Sure, you do get a significant advantage from spending money, but it’s pay to get on the leaderboards, not pay to be successful. I haven’t spent a penny and am level 12 in leagues. I admit, as you get higher, supercell needs to make it easier to get coins and cards, which was helped by the token system, but still needs to be addressed, and made a bit less grindy, because it’s really hard to get a single max card. Another thing people complain about is the balance, saying cards are op, and that everyone plays the same op cards. Those are called win conditions. They do the main damage. They are not over powered, they are just your main damage dealer. Ice spirit is not weak because it can’t destroy a tower. It wasn’t meant for that. Balloon isn’t overpowered because it deals damage to your tower. You just have to build your deck to defend it. So many people complain about cards being op, but they just want to win more, and since only 1/2 of the people can win in a match, you just have to git gud. There’s no way that more than 50% of people can win if everyone payed a single match. There’s no possible way to make everyone win all the time, so instead of complaining in reviews and blaming your problems on hackers (I’ve never seen a hacker in 3 years) or the game being bad, just get gud.
  • Battle pass revived game Jul 3, 2019

    By Brufbddjd
    Clash of clans was always a good game but it’s was getting boring same old same old yeah the special events here and there but I would only play it when I was bored but now the battle pass changed everything it’s a great way to get people to grind I went from playing it when I was bored to grinding every day also I don’t have to worry about dropping leagues because it doesn’t matter anymore as long as I get 1 crown I’m moving along in the battle pass. — lets get into making this big update even better (suggestions based on opinion) 1. Every tier up your should recive 1250k - 750k experience points 2. When the battle pass ends intstantly have the next season at the ready (ex. Fortnite) 3. Add card selection tickets to the battle pass everyone is always grinding to get the perfect chest with the exact card that they need 50,000 of or 1000 of or 200 of all hard to get because the chests all have a chance of giving that specific card with 93 cards that’s 1/93 and even then you might only get like 3 of what you want. With the card selection ticket you could have different amounts for each rarity 100 common 50 rare 15 epic and 1 legendary but only on like the last tier or in a special challenge. Overall thanks supercell I hope you see my recommendations, I think you users will love it!

    Fix matchmaking I’m at 4200 trophies and I’m stuck because of my opponent levels I’m not complaining to much because it’s fun and addicting. There’s also the fact that I’ve made it this far without spending a dime but to be honest I’ve only madr it this far from put together other people’s deck to improve mine but a level is everything and the game refuses to give you the cards you use best what I’m trying to say is that if you don’t have high level cards you will never progress I’ve only made it this far because i used an expensive deck with mega knight peka and royal giant I figured if I could out damage them I could win and it work while they were killing my mega knight and peka the royal giant did all the damage basically i got here on luck because the are so many ways to counter each card but at the end of the day if you can spam high level cards you win n by the way my card are level ten only my royal giant is level eleven my king tower is level eleven as well i say i git here by luck because I haven’t even been playing the game for a year yet and I’ve gotten this far but I’ve been stuff in arena thirteen because of the level of my cards to conclude this complicated and off topic review I’m asking you to fix the level matchmaking system in the game please and thank you
  • Good but !!!! Nov 8, 2018

    By Pyro199
    Matches you with people that had your counters. One wrong move and cause you the match, very expensive. I put 30 bucks in this game and still have low lvl cards. No real reward for the Stress this game causes. DONE PLAYING, MADE IT TO 3200 trophies and see no reason to continue. Good luck to all the paying and non paying players. Also lvls are everything in this game and by lvl 7 it's very hard to get cards and cost a lot of gold to upgrade. After lvl 11. It becomes impossible to get your troops up to lvl 12. It cost 40k gold if you went to buy a legendary card in your you daily cards. That's 20bucks real money or a lot of grinding to get that much. And once you buy one the price goes up for another. I seen people with max cards. Nice to be rich. Another pay to win game by supercell. People who love this game maybe just started or been paying to win. Wish we could see how much money was put in by the people who give this 5 stars...Update so I took 2yrs off and decided to play again. Got up to 3800 trophies and again I started getting matched with players who have all maxed cards. It becomes impossible to win from strategy alone. Yes great game and good graphics. I would recommend if your willing to invest in the legendary chest ( $25 ) so that you can build a strong deck
  • Fun game, but slightly pay to win as you progress Jul 4, 2020

    By Anonymous Clash Royale Player
    This game is really fun. I’ve had it for a few months now and I think that the idea is unique and enjoyable, the animation is great, and the updates, reworks, and new cards keep it interesting. I’ve never spent a dollar on this game, and I’ve managed to get to master 1 (For those of you who haven’t played, that’s good but not pro level or anything like that). The game was really fun and interesting at the beginning, when I was still in the arena section, which is the beginner to middle part. However, when I reached leagues, (The part for intermediate and advanced players) I noticed that it was really hard to progress further without buying things that give you better chances of winning battles, and therefore being a higher level and better player. Some of my friends bought the packs and chests, and I noticed that they made much more progress in the game, even though we’d been playing about the same amount of time. So, this is a great game for beginners, intermediate players, and to some degree, advanced players (If you’re a free player like me, expect to get frustrated), but don’t expect to become a pro if you’re not willing to pay. I hope this review was helpful. Have a great day, regardless of whether you get the game or not!
  • I loved this game until... May 19, 2021

    By Zelta1234
    I liked the game back in 2018 but now it's garbage. Why may you ask why? The main reason is because match making is broken. Imagine fighting a higher level then you are with 300+ more HP, and DMG. Doesn't seem fair at all and it needs to be fix! It needs to be where you can only fight with your level. Essentially how the game works is that the amount of time and effort you take in playing this game comes out as your level. More time more Xp, is how the game works if you play it normally. So a level 12 shouldn't up with a level 13 because the xp difference between 12 and 13 is significant. I don't remember but it's expensive get to level 13. I want to even dare say that no one has a maxed account without any money being spent. It's how difficult the game really is. However I do love the graphics, there crispy and animated well. Also this barely takes much space and for me not much cellular data is being used. I love draft mode because it's random and makes things actually skilled based. Some modes are good some are meh but most of them are fun for awhile. I recommend playing for a year or two before you get tired of playing it. It seems fun at first but once you it your end point where you can't gain much trophies anymore it kinda get pointless. I don't like how you get into another challenger and feel like nothing has happened. It seems good at first but once you reach that point it gets boring.
  • I hope that supercell reviews comments Dec 15, 2018

    By Dousky
    Token system released is broken. Waaaaaay too many gems to get the “bonus” unlocks on global tourneys with no way to earn gems at more that 4-5 every here and there. The ridiculous brawl stars game mode they released, even if temporary, has no place in this app with the one tower having even 1 turret. It’s a promotion for the game they released geared more toward younger players and to cash in on a Battle Royale style game money. On the upside, gold finally feels somewhat attainable if you don’t spend real currency and the normal game modes feel balanced for the most part, except golem/night witch/lightning. It really bothers me that I can play the normal modes and enjoy the game win or loss, but the second I have to participate in the extra games or tourneys, I want to throw my phone due to stupid decisions on game types or rules they put in. (Also, for those who say, “just don’t play those game modes” that is where a bulk of rewards I mentioned as positives earlier come from almost exclusively). I say this as someone who’s favorite game type is a draft battle, where all cards are random chance. Also, why they haven’t made draft or 2x draft a mainstay outside of the clan wars irritates me as well. All in all, I was loving every aspect of the game until the most recent update where I feel that Supercell took a huge step backward. It’s not enough to keep me from playing at this time, but it is definitely pushing me in that direction.

    I wish they let you play instead of hustling people. The matchups are rigged so bad. It's a good game, it's just the politics behind the scenes with the developers setting the match ups to influence impulse buying. My question is, why? People like the game so you get money from downloads so why money hustle them with rigged matchups?
  • Pay to win game... new update was bad Sep 13, 2020

    By Tcs050709
    Many people can agree with me on this. There is no way you can get up to max level and have all maxed cards pretty quickly without pulling out the best card in the game: the credit card. I used to love this game and played it constantly every day. The clan community was awesome, the endless amount of decks you can try and play with, and the occasional nice challenges here and there. However, as I got better at the game, I realized that I had to pay to max my cards. The problem is that you need to spend hundreds if not thousands to be maxed. Also,I was a level 9 at challenger three playing against gold star level 13s with e barbs and wizard. Now, overtime it got better because I eventually leveled up and I actually stood a chance. (not really) My second big issue is that it took ONE YEAR to have an actual big update. And let’s face it... clan wars 2 are just very underwhelming and almost the same. The worst part is the fact that you get matched against maxed players that happen to have ALL of their four decks maxed. I really hope that they can fix this and just have it at tournament standard. I have a massive amount of respect for supercell but even now at level 12 without paying I’m not really enjoying the same stale game play. I was really hyped for clan wars 2 but all we really got was dueling (which is nice) but with a level disadvantage. #lowleveledplayersmatter

    Let me start off saying I love this game and have spent money on supercell games plenty of times. Clash royale has way to many bugs and glitches that will scud or gender you from having a fair chance at certain points. In a recent tournament named ‘elixir capture’ I went 7/10 wins pretty good for being in the royal arena, but I could have made it to the top prize if I could have had a better match making, I was playing against players in challenger 3 and spooky town, the level of card may stay the same, but if I can’t have the same cards as them like the electro wizard and goblin gangs to compete, why am I playing against them, they also have way more experience than me but I will not count that since it is a tournament, that is an unfair advantage why can’t I play with people in the same arena as my top trophies ( not on arenas because you can go back down of course ) so that at least I know that I’m not playing some clash royale try hard. Second the kicking me out the game stuff is not cool, it feels like every game I expect to be kicked out of a match at any moment, Idk if it is because of players cheating or the game just crashing on its own be it seems that when my opponent pushes me I get kicked out and have to see a loading screen to me getting 3 starred that is embarrassing to the devs that I have to expect this every game please fix, IMMEDIATELY I hate it. Thank you, sincerely a dedicated player
  • Good yet really unbalanced Jan 3, 2020

    By icnsinceou
    The game overall is very intriguing, the solid gameplay, fun mechanics, and overall great theme / atmosphere. There is a major flaw that many games have though, RNG. RNG can actually make the game more interesting, but more often than not it makes it unfair. For example, it is highly unlikely people who don’t spend money on the game will get legendaries, as they’re extremely rare and are most often obtainable through buying with real cash. The major problem is matchmaking or choosing your cards. A lot of the time, I see many clan mates complain about how their choice of cards always seems to backfire, leaving them with nothing but lose after lose. This is because of how you cannot see what cards the other clan has, you have to choose without an knowledge of what’s to come. Now you might argue that well, this happens to everyone, that means it’s fair, right? Wrong. That means most games are completely on one person’s side at random chance. So every game feels like your opponent is going to destroy you, or you are going to destroy them. The meta is infinite, anyone could have a great counter to your deck at any time, and you don’t know when it’ll happen. Fair matches are a treat to come by, but it’s like finding a needle in a pile of hay. So maybe a great addition you can add into the game is an data board of “overall cards used” in a specific game mode.
  • Another pay to win game Jul 20, 2017

    By Darkreaper13x
    I don't really want to give it bad review but it is a pay win game I am not saying it's well balanced but i am not saying it's unbalanced. It's not a game for people with luck it's pretty much a game for adults with money so if your a kid don't play it. It's not A bad game but it's sort of expensive so you really got to change your card policies or no kid is going to play your game again it's not a bad game it's just over complicated on the card system I got one legendary but I saw some people have more I wondered why then I look at there level there higher than my level how do you level up fast buying coins and gems. You should make an offer to players that don't play too well. I want to love this Game but it's too expensive so I'm going to stop playing it due to the card fiasco I don't really want to say I hate it I just don't want to play it because it's too expensive it's really a pay to win game people play the game because they have money and they spend it but I don't doesn't want to have fun I don't really want to spend money and free downloadable game so I'm going to stop until either the prices change orders a little event will you spend like like two dollars or one to get like 300 gems something like that so sorry i am not going to play Game sorry super cell but I'm not going to play it anymore it's a pay to win game and I can't pay for anything.
  • Classic Aug 29, 2020

    By Kaizer284
    The devs are still very invested in the game, but they really like to push certain cards. The mega knight card, for example, is boosted during this season to encourage you to use it. This just means it’s leveled up to the level of your towers. Problem is the mega knight is STILL rather OP. It drops in killing any small troops around it (including things like the Wizard if he’s taken any damage at all) and then he continues to deal high splash damage at a moderate speed, so anything that doesn’t get killed from the spawn will get killed by his first attack. I’ve tried a few decks, but it’s one of those cards that require special consideration. You can’t just make a deck and think about if you have all your bases covered: air defense, defense against heavies (golem, giant), defense against high damage (pekka, prince), defense against splash... The mega knight requires very special consideration. You have to make your deck and ask “Can I defend against the mega knight?” Because regular anti-splash technics typically don’t work since he has high damage, and small troops like goblins or skeletons won’t work because of his splash damage. On top of all that, he has a ton of health, so you have to keep up a sustained defense while also trying to fight off the troops that are placed behind him, usually another ranged splash troop, making this card almost a guaranteed win if you have it and requiring very little experience
  • Great Game, but pay to win Apr 8, 2020

    By Fix CR please
    Overall, clash royale is a brilliantly designed game, and their updates and additions of new cards and balance changes keeps the game interesting. However, the underlying problem lies in the pay to win function. Up until about 4000 trophies, king tower and card levels don’t have that much influence over your success, but after that, it is clear that the higher leveled cards you have, it almost guarantees success. I am level 11 with a season high of about 5300 trophies. Most of my cards are level 10 or 11. I find it ridiculous that I am consistently matched up against level 13s with maxed out cards on ladder, as I don’t stand a chance. There are very easy solutions to prevent such poor matchmaking, but also allow people to spend money if they desire. Essentially, they could implement a function that matches you against players up to 1 level higher than you, with only slight differences in average card levels. This would even the playing fields more, but still incentivize upgrading cards. Another idea is to give better accessibility to chests, or increase the number of donations, as those are the only ways free to play players are able to upgrade. Obviously Supercell won’t listen to these suggestions or other players that complain about the same problem, as everything lies in making more money and monetizing the game.
  • Fixing the game May 8, 2020

    By djmarshmellowxD
    I like the game and all but there are some stuff that I don’t like of example when there is a tournament and I see a prize and I really want it but it says you need like 9 wins to get it and you only have 3 lives and I never get it cuz I lose then I get mad. I think 3 lives isn’t enough I only see like the really good people getting the prizes. And mostly people with the pass Royale and someone can’t get it which makes not fair. I just like a fair game. I don’t know if anyone thinks same way but this is what I think. This game is really stressful because when I am doing the tournaments I know that I have only 3 lives and get nervous. Then I join a match and I literally see the guy using a golem WHICH I HATE they literally have so much health that I don’t have any good stuff to stop it and then they put more troops behind the golem protecting it which makes harder and me over here with like a princess or like a lumberjack which die real fast and don’t do much and them with golems and electro wizards and magic archers and then I lose and I get mad cuz I lose my first match-_- when I watch you tubers for instance orange juice I see that he loses all 3 of his lives in tournaments but he has the pass royale so he can just get his lives back I know supercell you’re like “get the pass royale then” but some people can’t get it! I’m not trying to be rude or anything I have my respects.
  • Fun until late game Mar 7, 2019

    By ToolbagTed
    This game at first was fun and engaging on many fronts. I was able to fly through the first couple of arenas without a problem. But as the game progressed, there was a handful of flaws that became more and more obvious the longer I played. Once I reached arena 8 I noticed how individuals I was facing had “legendary” cards. And their card levels were way above my own, even though we were nearly the same level most of the time. I struggled to win against these players considering as long as I’ve played I’ve never even found 1 legendary card. This fact is mostly related to the ability for players to purchase “legendary” chests, rather than relying on the dumb luck of obtaining that one card they desire. The truth is the game itself isn’t that bad, but its pay to win system hurts players who just want to play for free, and this problem will only increase the further you get into the game. I’m making an update for this games review, and it’s absolutely unplayable once you get to arena lvl 9 or 10 without paying for legendary cards. I’m tired of getting absolutely destroyed by players that have no strategy but have the ability to drag and drop the same units onto their screen over and over again. I’m most likely just going to drop this game due to the fact the only thing I can do now is to lose and grind out some legendary cards. Not to mention the higher up you go usually the more toxic players you come across in game.(I still don’t even have 1 yet).
  • Truly pay to win Apr 11, 2018

    By Danofthevalley
    When I started playing this game , I loved every minute of the gameplay. I didn’t really mind the chest taking so long to open or the lack luster gold you get from them but then I got to certain point where it leaned from a 50/50 duel to 0/100, why you ask? The game has a rating on cards that relate to their power level (common,epic, and rare) but then legendary cards come around and you think wow let me see if I can get one from a chest, after two months of opening chest of all kinds not once did I get a legendary so then checked online and saw that you have to buy these cards with gems or lots and lots of gold. This in itself made question the time I’ve spent playing arena trying my hardest to get wins to get more cards but when the duel was between you and someone with a legendary card you new you were done for . Legendary cards are so powerful in this game that they flip the second they spawn like the dragon that cost 4 mana and can do 1000 damage per second which obliterates your tank minions or the ice wizard which can slow down everything moving. The fact that these minions are behind a paywall just makes the game harder for free2play players, some people might say go and save gems and gold then but the thing is that they are so scarce that by the time you get the gems and gold to get one card , you might as well just turn to another game. This game is great but in order become a champion you need to a legendary card so pay up
  • Toxic waste of time May 29, 2021

    By jaynyc15
    First, the game can be very fun if you go into it without any expectations. There are fun challenges and the clan community is also fun to have. However, when trying to play with expectations or trying to play competitively that's when it gets toxic. I was a level 9 and noticed once I was hooked on trying to beat the game the only way I advanced was when I spent money on gems to buy cards, coins, etc. Once I made it to arena 13 I was being matched with players a level or two higher than me (I was a level 9) that alone had me at a disadvantage, they also had higher level cards than me even tho I would spend an excessive amount of money on the game to upgrade all my cards. As a result of constantly losing some then winning some, the game just felt like it was getting toxic not to mention the bad sportsmanship some player had when beating you at a game. Lastly, I noticed that I would spend hours glued to the phone trying to achieve this delusional goal of beating the game only to lose to an op mega night deck and high tower level. I became so discouraged and angry when losing these matches I decided to uninstall the game altogether, I wouldn't recommend this game to someone that has anger issues or has any mental health issues. I hope supercell finds a way to make this game fairer to people who aren't spending money and also nerf some cards like mega knight cus there's only 1 card that can destroy it fairly fast which is the inferno dragon.
  • Unbearable Oct 19, 2021

    By KelRazor
    I remember when this game was the best game to play along with your friends. This game used to be one of the most highly played games, and we would all laugh about the thought of getting a legendary This game is probably one of the worst games ever created of all time. This is because of balance issues between many cards, along with the experience cap that leaves you ultimately screwed. I’m a level 10 player in the gold legendary arena, and I find it nearly impossible to advance to the masters league. Why would you ask? Because of the most unbalanced cards such as the mega knight or the peeka. It’s unbelievable that these cards possess such a great amount of power, and a great amount of damage. How in the world do I end up fighting against level 12’s when all my characters do is scratch their cards?? Why is there always a principle where you win win game, the lose two, or win two, and lose one?? It’s as if the game doesn’t let you advance, because this is clearly a pay to win game, and these filthy developers are greedy for your money. It was the exact same way with legendaries, but luckily they fixed that. The amount of cards in this game is the reason why you will never be able to advance, unless your cards a leveled up. It’s very obvious to see that there is no perfect deck against your enemies and that it’s nearly impossible to stay on a win streak I’m very dissatisfied with this game supercell Please fix this, Your game is literally dying
  • The war system is awful, and ruins the game Feb 13, 2019

    By Perditor33
    I have a ton of fond memories playing with my clan l, and I’ve been playing Royale since it launched. I managed to build a strong, fun loving, active clan where everyone helped each other. It was great. Then supercell decided to bring clan wars into the picture. They were exciting and frustrating but I gave them time. Well, it’s been several months now and my clan has managed to get to gold league level 3 from non-stop war. However, it’s really taken a toll. Engagement is down, most of the regulars have quit and now if I leave my clan open for new members to join, all I get are people who join wars and then abandon the clan. There’s no good option. If I make the clan “invite only” I can’t do enough recruitment on reddit and discord to get more than one new person a month, who usually quits after a couple of wars anyway. You might say that you can just play the game without wars, and you’d be right, but for me and my clan it was always about working together, and the old system of unlocking chests together was a blast. My guess is the developers must be making a lot more money from in app gem purchase with the war system, but in the end I think it’s going to slowly gut the game. If you’re looking for a way to waste a few minutes a day, look no further. But if you’re looking to have an engaging, fun filled social time with folks from all over the world, I suggest you spend your time and money elsewhere.
  • Used to be 5 star game, now simply a Pay to win game... Jul 31, 2019

    By Lukeap1
    NOTE: I am only rating the latest version of the game, earlier versions would be much higher rated... Clash royale has definitely developed over the years, and with its wide variety of cards and combos available to the player, it can be seen as a very strategic card game that was designed to last. With every new update bringing a fun and unique addition to the classic we knew and loved, like when 2v2 and clan wars were released, it made users always wanting more. However, the latest updates have ruined the game for the main player base which is free to play, by adding an overpowered and unnecessary “pass royale”. Albeit somewhat cheap, the huge problem with all Battle pass-like features is that they either cost too much to be useful, or are way too overpowered that it makes free to play impossible to compare, and there is no doubt the latter issue is what plagued the game. With free re-entries into any event they want, players who own pass royale can simply join a challenge and troll free to play players by simply beating them and throwing to reset their losses. This issue is the key problem to the entirety of the update, as they also removed the continue with gems feature. What I personally wish they done was provide a gem discount for re-entry I’d pass royale owners. This would solve so many issues with their power and put pass royale in comparable status with free to play accounts.
  • Clan War 2.0 blues Sep 23, 2020

    By Chrisnicholson96
    I want to preface this by saying at one time, this was my favorite video game. I played this far more than anything on PlayStation or steam, and the way you could team up with others and form a clan to actively work towards a common goal was just a great concept. However, with the new clan wars update, all the progress I and my clan have pushed so hard for in the last 2 years is for naught. It’s absolutely ridiculous that there isn’t any comprehensible scaling in the war games, it doesn’t matter if you’ve spent all your time and coin on leveling up your ladder deck for the last 2 years, the truth is that unless you spend serious money or a crazy amount of time on the game, it’ll take many years now for you to get to the point where you’re able to hold your own against the max level players with whom you’re consistently forced to matchmake with. Very poor decision making, as a guaranteed loss 3/4 times in the core team gameplay mode motivates absolutely nobody to keep playing, and I’m seeing more and more dedicated players become inactive due to the pointlessness of it all. The only possible solution I can see, is either more accurate matchmaking (and no, nobody cares if it takes a long time to get a fair game), or tournament standard on all war games. Please listen to the community and address this, whether it be through my solutions or your own, this problem needs a solution.
  • Unbalanced Apr 4, 2018

    By WishfullKid
    The game design is great. It looks nice, its very consistent and has a lot of variety... well, not THAT much variety. The game lacks constant balance updates for a competitive game and is very pay-to-win. A person could be using a low tier card but have above average levels for their cards and win simply because they’ve spent more money. Additionally, if you use a card that is in the meta that is considered “OP” or over-tuned, you have a higher chance at winning and this wouldn’t be that big of an issue if they just fixed it quickly. The thing is, is that they don’t update the game regularly. They simply allow cards that are overpowered to stay overpowered for whatever reason, whether it is laziness or marketing. So if you take a card that is overpowered and a higher level than anyone else's, then you have an indisputable advantage over anyone who doesn’t follow the meta. A person may say “well why don’t you reach a point where everyone is the same level and use the cards in meta?” You see, idiot, that it will either take years (or maybe just a year) of ingame time or spend tons of money just to get there, and then have no fun being a meta-slave just playing to win on a mobile game that should simply just be played for fun with a sense of competition. The game needs to fix their garbage and make gems more accessible to someone who doesn’t want to waste money on an unbalanced joke.
  • This game is unbalanced and has the worst start Mar 3, 2018

    By Blast1
    When I first played this game I thought wow this if amazing and the gameplay was great but when I got to a higher arena I noticed I went up against people with cards levels higher than mine not only would I lose to people with cards the shouldn’t have or are even available in the same arena but also when in the lower arenas I lost too people with cards I never had. The game has no matchmaking system that balances out your card level if u deranked to lower arenas ,which people do to get easy wins, and I had no fun AT ALL. The game is also PTW WHICH IS PAY TO WIN when you play you can buy chest that get u cards easier and quicker WITH an easier way of getting good ones over trash cards. When playing you are rewarded an abundance of trash silver chests that give a very low amount of cards and never even cards that are good nor cards you wants. The games gameplay is amazing I love the aspect of it with cards and then placing on the battlefield and watching them go but then also placing it strategically to win that battle between cards. This game is vert well done BUT it’s matchmaking against God’s when you just start the game, also when deranking they DONT CARE NOR ADRESS IT and cards don’t have a restriction against it if used in lower arena. Sorry supercell but you must fix the starting point of your game before your endgame if you want actuall new players.
  • Please Fix the lag! Jul 18, 2020

    By icy234b
    I have played this game for three years and have really enjoyed playing this game over the last three years but today is the last day I will play this game. To anyone who is interested in playing this game do not because you will find that this is not a balanced game. In order to compete with people in this game you need gold to upgrade your cards and you will never be able to get gold at a low level unless you pay for it. The only opportunity at getting gold is if you reach level 8 or 9 and that may take you several months to reach that point in this game. So if you are a new player don’t bother with this game. I was fortunate to download this game when it first came out so I’m able to have level 13 cards which is the max level. I have even reached top 500 on leaderboards several times but can no longer compete due to lag. This game has such horrible connection problems that it is unbearable. It takes me 1 min to load this game and 20 seconds to join a battle every time. You may be one of the few people like me where you just can’t simply play the game. If they fix the lag I may get back on but so many of us who love this game are unable to play it. Supercell I really hope you see these comments about the lag because it is a massive issue with your game. I could watch a 4K 30 sec video before I play a clash game.

    I remember how I used to play this game years ago, it was so fun! I couldn't stop playing. But now, the only thing this game causes you is anger because it's all pay to win. And that's why no one plays this game anymore and it's horrible. I can't find a game where my opponent has everything maxed and I struggle to win so hard but I can't with my lvl 11 cards. It is very sad seeing the game you grew up with slowly dying. I hope from all my heart SUPERCELL sees this review and 'revive' the game.

    King level 14 is a greedy cash grab. I have been a loyal player of this game for over five years. I have bought the pass almost every season since it came out as it felt like a small price to pay for the game that I got so much out of. I was finally in a place where I didn't feel like I had to grind to have fun. And now it's right back to the grind. I have to max every one of my cards again. 100k more gold for each card and 20 legendaries and 200 epics all again. I'm done.

    By Bastian Herrmann
    I have been playing this game for a long while. The new update adding another card level is not an update but a clear and disgusting attemp at getting (a lot of) money out of players without adding any new value to the game. This together with the balancing in recent times makes it almost impossible to recommend and it gets more likely I will stop playing this game for good.

    This game could have been wonderful. Beautiful graphics fun characters and lore, but supercell ruined things. The game is pay to win and thwre is no work around. The math has been done and is readily available just with a simple Google search. To play the game as intended without spending a dollar it would take you around 22 YEARS to max your account. With spending money it costs an average of 16 THOUSAND us DOLLARS. Supercell has ruined this game and I strongly recommend to you not to play it.

    By Noa Hallam
    I have played this game since launch. Whilst I've disagreed with some of the changes supercell have made I've never been as outraged as today. They are adding level 14 to the game, which means thousands will have to be spent to max your account. This lazy cash grabbing update isn't the worst part. They'll be releasing the update soon after the Slash Royale event, which means they wanted the player base to spend all their books, gold and cards so they will be forced to spend money for the update.

    Been playing this game for years, used to love it. But I just can't support it after level 14 was announced. They had a huge event which gave us tons of gold, and held off on announcing level 14 until after everyone spent that gold, so we'll be forced to buy gold with actual money for level 14. They actually scammed us.

    Supercell management continues to completely ignore all community suggestions and adds cash grab after cash grab. The game is still salvageable, but I might have to stop playing, simply because it isn't very fun unless you're paying hundreds of dollars(CAD) a year. Edit: The game concept/style plays very much like a fast paced board game mixed with a video game, which I like the most about Clash Royale. However, after not enough new things to keep me engaged consistently, I've just been bored

    By Native_Beats _2016
    The only way this game could be more toxic is if they added an in-game chat feature. In addition to the game's matchmaking algorithm, after one or two wins, will match you with players that can directly counter your deck. Weather or not you shuffle you deck is pointless. You can only win continuous games and progress is if you have the disposable income to spend on upgrades, legendary cards, and chests.

    I've been playing this game for close to 6 years and it's always been terrible for F2P players, but at least we were not scammed by the devs... until now. They just released a 50% discount event (knew it sounded too good to be true) and everyone used their Gold, Tokens and Books to upgrade cards they don't use often. After a few days they decide to announce that the max level will increase to 14! Now we don't have any resources left to upgrade our main deck and are stuck facing lvl 14 on ladder

    Played this game for 2 years, enjoyed every single bit of it, until matchmaking made me take a break. Came back after a few years, completely different game. Managed to get to lvl 13 a few months ago and now they want to implement lvl 14. Definitely a bad idea and seems super greedy. Matchmaking alone is enough to stress someone out. Now imagine matchmaking plus having to grind out more years after finally maxing most of your stuff out. Seems like a cash grab. Super dissapointed in this decision
