Clash Royale October Update!

New Gamemodes

Touchdown Mode: 

  • Do everything you can to get a troop cross the touchdown line at the end of the Arena.
  • Troops will run in straight lines until get lured.
  • 1 troop crossing the line = 1 Crown. Get 3 Crowns first to win the game. Otherwise, the one who gets more Crowns in 3 minute will win the game. There will be sudden death also.
  • x1 Elixir and x2 Elixir phrases remain. The first 2 minutes are x1 Elixir and the rest is x2 Elixir.

As you can only play troops behind that white line, cards like Graveyard, Miner, Goblin Barrel etc are also affected.

Read more about the Touchdown Mode at here.

Mirror Challenge:

Play vs the same deck and same rotation. Every deck contains the Mirror card, which is the gamechanging factor.

There is no excuses here. Only the best player will win the game unless the lord of connection is not standing by your side.

Join and get the one-time rewards!

  • 3 Wins = Golden Chest
  • 6 Wins = Giant Chest.

Daily Quests

This is, hands down, the most exciting thing that we have been waiting for months.

We will have daily quests, probably up to 3 Quests per day. Finishing these quests will give you Quest Points, which will be used to open a chest in the menu (which could be Gold Chest, Epic Chest, Giant Chest, Magical Chest, Super Magical Chest or Legendary Chest).

Here are some Quests we have at the moment. There are still a lot more!

  • Win a 2v2 Battle x times.
  • Win a 1v1 Battle x times.
  • Play [Type] cards x times in 1v1 Arena Battles.
  • Open x chests.
  • Collect x cards.
  • Play cards with Common rarity x times in 1v1 Arena Battles.
  • Play [Rarity] Cards x times in 1v1 Arena Battles.
  • Play cards that cost at least x Elixir y times in 1v1 Arena Battles.
  • Request cards from your Clan x times.
  • Play card [Name] x times.
  • Play the combo [Name] x times.

Daily Gift

We will have a Daily Gift system inside the Quests menu.

All you need to do is just to open the game and collect the gift every day. Do not skip any day or the rewards will be back to the Day 1.

The rotation of the Daily Gift will be changed every reset but you will get the same rewards after all. 5 days in total and you will be back to Day 1.

Collecting Daily Gift gives you 5 Quest Points each time.

Revamped Shop and Free Offers

Free Gold, Cards and Gems

Every day, you will have a chance to get free 200 Gold, 10 Gems, Silver Chest, Gold Chest etc. And on every Sunday, you can get an Epic card from the shop for free (It’s Epic Sunday guys, of course!)

free gifts daily
Sometimes you have this free offer. Sometimes you don’t. Sometimes you get free Gold but sometimes you get free Gems. It varies but we will find out the order soon!

New Card Prices

The card prices are changed a bit but not really.

From now Common Card now costs 100 Gold each. However, it’s consistent. Which means, If you purchase even 100 cards, the last card’s price is still 400 Gold.

The price is not doubled as before.

  • 1 Common Card = 10 Gold.
  • 1 Rare = 100 Gold
  • 1 Epic = 1,000 Gold
  • 1 Legendary = 40,000 Gold
  • 600 Gold = 20 Gems
  • And a lot more offers.

If you want to purchase a shop slot, you need to buy all of the cards there.

For example, as you can see in the screenshot above, you can’t buy 1 Inferno Tower for 100 Gold. You need to buy all of those 10 for 1,000 Gold.

This is truly a lot better shop than before since you can max out cards a lot easier. Instead of buy 1-2 cards every day, you can just save up Gold and buy a bunch later.

For insane, before, you need 3,000 Gold to buy 2 Golems at once but now it takes only 2000 Gold. If you want to buy 2 Golems with the price at 1,000 each, you will need to wait until 2049 to see Golem in the shop again.

Fact: Sometimes, there are slots which require you to buy with Gems. Seems not okay, but actually this gives you more value than turning Gems to Gold then buying them.

After a 2v2 battle, you can request the partner for a rematch and chat with them with lots of new emotes:

There will be some daily casual challenges, where all players above level 4 can enter.

The new thing is, If you lose a match, it doesn’t count. So you can just keep playing until you hit the threshold.
