What is Clan Wars?

It’s been 6 months since the last major Clash Royale update and Supercell has been working very hard to bring back the hype to the game.

Clan Wars should be a real gamechanging feature, which could bring back left players and lots of new players.

New Cards Coming in this April Update?

Update: There is no new card in this update. But we will have new cards in May, which is very close.

Hint: Watch your step when walking in the woods near Royal Arena…

Again, we have no clue yet.

This section will be used for the new cards (hopefully) once the update launched.

A few weeks ago, there was a guy asking CR team on Twitter that where was a new card coming. and they said Maaaaybe… with a hush emoji.

Maybe this is not a solid proof, in my opinion, Supercell really must release some new cards right now, which should be win-conditions, not all-around or support cards.

The gameplay must be evolved around them, creating a fresh new strategies for people.

And now is a perfect time to release new cards.

According to Tim, new heroes (not cards) were not a part of the Clan Wars update… Are they gonna be released soon? Archer Queen and Barbarian King?

no new heroes


How about the New Arena?

How about the new Arena?

Supercell hasn’t offered any indication about this yet, however, WELLGAMER has datamined some very interesting stuffs inside the game code.

There is new Arena called Atlantis, which could be coming in this update, and a new game mode named “King of the Hill”.

This is just so exciting!
