1. Dark History(Source: Your History textbook)
Clash Royale was first soft-launched on iOS on January 4, 2016, exclusively to eight select countries: Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, and New Zealand. Unfortunately, I lived in the United States but was still able to download Clash Royale from the Canadian app store by changing my location.
2. They charged to battle.
making it realistic. You had to pay Gold to battle multiplayer or friendly battles. This severely limited playing as it meant that you would have to spend your Gold on battles, rather than saving them for upgrades.
3. Simplicity back then.
January 11, 2016 – At this early stage of the game, the Prince, Witch, and Goblin Barrel were considered the best cards in the game and were immediately nerfed by end of the first week the game was launched.
4. The Best Card:
The Freeze Spell was the best card in the game by far due to its 4-tile radius and long duration. So it received a much-needed nerf, decreasing its radius to 3 tiles. Funny thing is, even after this big nerf, the Freeze Spell was still the best card in the game for months.
5. The Most feared card:
The X-Bow was the most hated card in the game. It was a nightmare for new players to deal with as it was a highly reactive card. It was a super strong card as it only took 3 seconds to deploy and target and had lots of Hit Points and also an insane 13-tile range. So this card received a 15% HP decrease and was limited to only targeting ground units. Yes, the X-Bow was used to also target air units.
6. Release Date(You probably don’t wanna know but it’s my blog):
March 2, 2016 – The day Clash Royale was released globally on iOS and Android.
7. Poison Time!!
Poison received a significant buff, in which its damage per second increased by 24%, meaning it now lasts 8 seconds instead of 10. This was huge, allowing Poison to one-shot Skeletons and build up damage quicker. Poison now has a home to many top decks.
8. Goblin Attack!!
February 23, 2017 – Goblin Gang makes its appearance and quickly finds a home in decks that utilize the Goblin Barrel and Princess thanks to Goblin Gang’s ability to bait out The Log or Zap Spells.
9. The executioner just got scammed.
February 13, 2017 – After the Executioner(not the “Executioner“) ruled over the game for a few weeks, he was nerfed significantly, damage decreased by 6%, range decreased by 0.5 tiles, axe radius decreased by 10%, and also removal of his stun effect. He’s no longer overpowered.
10. Elite Barbarians (Yeah the “Elite Barbarians“)are the Scammers:
Elite Barbarians were given one of the biggest buffs ever in a single balance change. They received a 19% HP increase, a 14% damage increase, and Hit Speed increased to 1.4 from 1.5. They quickly proved to be too good.
