March 23rd Update: Balance Changes

Hello guys, so the new Clash Royale Update will be released on 23rd March, 2016 with a lot of new changes for a better game balance. In this page, I am going to introduce with you everything in the upcoming game update to help you be ready with the new changes as soon as possible.


Clash Royale March 23rd Update: Balance Changes

  • X-Bow attack range gets decreased from 13 to 12: Since a lot of players find it hard to counter X-Bow decks, Supercell has made a small reduction on X-Bow.
  • Tesla attack speed gets decreased from 0.7s to 0.8s, lifetime gets decreased from 60s to 40s: I agree that the Tesla is a bit overpowered at this time as there isn’t any decent way to counter it.
  • Cannon lifetime gets decreased from 40s to 30s: I think this change is pretty okay since Cannon offers a lot of defensive power for just 3 Elixir.
  • Princess HP gets decreased by 10%: She can do a lot of damage at this time, which is not really balance. This change will help Arrows 1 hit her.
  • Prince and Dark Prince Charge Speed get decreased by 13%.
  • Ice Wizard Damage increased by 5%: He could do a bit more damage to increase his value,
  • Valkyrie HP and damage increased by 10%: Her use rates in Clash Royale is a bit low truly. I hope we will see her more in game after this update.
  • Royal Giant’s damage increased by 20%: I haven’t seen many players using Royal Giant in game and the main reason is because of his damage. This is a good change!
  • Giant’s damage increased by 5%.
  • Rage will give affected troops 40% more movement speed and attack speed. Also, its duration will be decreased by 20%.
  • Poison damage will be increased by 5%: Although this is an interesting card but not many people like using it at this time. I hope people will use it a lot more in the future!
  • Mirror: Mirrored Legendary Card level will be 1 level lower.
  • Three Musketeer Elixir Cost will be decreased from 10 to 9.
  • Balloon HP increased by 5%.
  • Witch damage increased by 5%.

It is going to be live tomorrow, 03/22/2016! What do you think about this new update guys? Please let me know your opinions!

    • Will Potter

      RIP X-Bow lol

  • Anderson Biz

    Prince and Dark Prince Charge Speed get decreased by 13%., thx for that 😉

    • Will Potter

      LOL seems like many players find it hard to deal with them. This is a good update imo :D.

  • DHZ

    I’ve been using for quite some time now and it carried me around 600 trophies further than I was before starting to use this deck. I really want to keep using it after the update. I think I’ll keep Tesla in because I think it will still be worth using. I think the Prince nerf really hits this deck because it relies so much on getting your Prince to the other side. Do you think I should switch out Prince after the update? I was thinking about Hog Rider maybe?

    • Will Potter

      I am doing my best to see If I can really improve this Deck. It will be still working fine after the update but not good as before :(.
      Also, thanks for trusting and using my deck DHZ!

  • Pearce

    Finally, RIP Xbow.

    • D-Mate19

      It may not be. You can still place one slightly in front of it beside it and it works almost as good.

    • Will Potter

      LOL. Are you a fan of X-Bow Decks?

      • Pearce

        No, I actually hate dem lol.

        • Will Potter

          LOL me too.

  • D-Mate19

    This update it great for my deck. I use giant witch bomber and also have a prince in there. The buffs to witch and giant help a lot. And lowering prince stats help me since I don’t have skeletons or barbarians. Can’t wait for it!

    • Will Potter

      Very nice. I hope you can get a lot of more trophies with your deck dude! And don’t hesitate to share it If you want :D.

      • D-Mate19

        Yeah sure, if you wanna take a look at it, I could learn from you tips as well. Here is the (new) deck:
        Minion horde
        Spear goblins


  • Felipe Miguel

    To be honest, it doesn’t even make sense having a tower like the “X-bow” in this game, since supercell philophosy was always “offense over defense”.

    • Ultimit☆Cuest

      But that tower is entirely offence. Anyone with the xbow as defense is a half-wit

    • Will Potter


  • Lync

    Thnx for the update on the update bro

    • Will Potter

      You are very welcome mate! It’s my pleasure!

  • Lakshmana Smart

    Whenz gonna release…bro

  • Felix Ma

    Not so good. Witch/Balloons are a lot harder to deal with. I’ve only faced 1 opponent with X-Bow, so this is not a problem. P.S. I’m arena 3.
