Journey of Clash Royale (Part 1)
What’s up Clashers! Welcome back to the Arena. This game, on which we spend hours trying to get that Tornado right, called Clash Royale has a magnificent history and has witnessed numerous ups and downs. In today’s article we’re gonna have a look at some of the epic moments, amazing updates and all the game changing things that Clash Royale has ever witnessed, right from its Global launch till the present time (2016 – June 2022).
Birth of Clash Royale Esports
This journey started in 2017 with the first season of the CRL(Clash Royale League) World Championship that took place in London. It was and still is a big hit. Sergio Ramos was crowned as the First Ever Clash Royale World Champion. The CRL formats have been updated from time to time. For example, from 2018 – 2020, the CRL format changed into a Team Event instead of an Individual Event. But now, in 2021, it has been transformed into an Individual Event again. But as time progressed, many such Clash Royale Events took place. Here is a list of major events and their winners.

The Legendary Rarity
I don’t know how many of you guys are aware of it. Still, in the beginning, when the game was newly launched, there were only 3 rarities of cards, namely, Common, Rare and Epic in Clash Royale. Later on, came the Legendary Rarity, which brought not only new cards in the game but also brought many new exciting mechanics. Yes, you heard right, this is the speciality of the Leggie Rarity. Whenever a new Legendary Card is released, it brings a brand new mechanic in the game. Here is the list of all the Leggies and their mechanics. Remember that there might be other cards with the same mechanic as well. Still, pretty much every completely new mechanic in the game is first released through a Legendary Card.

New Game Modes
Before there were new game modes in Clash Royale, there were only normal battles available to play. But then Supercell might have noticed that only this mode was not enough to keep the players entertained for a long time. Therefore, Blind Deck Challenge was the first-ever new game mode that was available to play in the game. Ever since the start, there have been several modes in Clash Royale available to play, such as special challenges, tournaments, etc. Out of them, most of the modes are still played in CR. Let’s take a look at the history of New Game Modes in Clash Royale:
- Deck Modes incl. Blind Deck Challenge, Youtubers’ Deck Challenge, Archetype Challenge etc.
