Clash Royale December Update Recap: New Cards, New Arena and More!
Okay my friends, the Clash Royale December Update is here! This is going to be a extremely huge update so I want to sum things up so you guys can easily follow the new update!
Okay, let’s go!
Clash Royale December Update Recap
New Arena: Electro Valley
The New Arena 11 unlocks at 3400 trophies. So now the gap between Hog Mountain and Legendary Arena is no longer a nightmare.
Legendary Arena (Arena 12) now has better rewards increased accordingly.
New Cards: Zappies and Hunter
- Zappies: Spawns plenty of Zap machines into the Arena.
- Hunter: The closer the target is, the more damage he can deal. He is kinda Shelly or Bull in Brawl Stars If you have played the game.
Three New Chests
Some big boys have already landed in the Arena!
- Lightning Chest: Replace card stacks of your choice with up to 5 “Strikes”
- Fortune Chest: Get a glimpse of the future and see what your chest might contain…
- King’s Chest / Legendary King’s Chest: Huge chests with only Epic and Legendary Cards
You can easily pick up these new chests from the Shop or from the Quests menu.
New Events coming
Gold Rush, Gem Rush, Special Challenges and Boosts are coming!
The “Daily Gifts” Quest is always active now.
Players above 4,000 trophies now can more often see the Epic and Legendary Cards offers in shop.
Cards maxed are now less likely to appear in Fortune Chest and the Shop.
iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note 8 are now fully supported.
Read more about the Balance Changes at here.
second lol, and so hyped for the new update!
ohh yes !
Lmao I will definitely do this
Hey will, I posted a graveyard poison deck I put a lot of time in to it and it’s been my 6th article submitted and none of the others have been posted. It would be super cool if it was posted thanks
I WANT THOSE MINI ZAPPERS
Lol I want all the new cards
When is this coming
Plz someone can.tell me when is this coming
This update I mean
Hi wow it’s not that good as expected
I expected new game mode but better than last one
I can’t understand the fortune chest
How does this person know all this? And when is the update
its on the clash royale website man!!
Update there is going to be a zappies vs Hunter challenge Source- https://clashroyale.com/ja/blog/release-notes/our-most-electrifying-update-yet
Nice! You are the man!
Acutually Google translate is
does anyone see the last pint in the article? Supercell is doing the exact same thing as they did with coc which was to only support ios7 and above(I had an iPod4 with ios6 sadly). Isn’t this just plain unfair. From software now to phone type?! WTH I’m so angry with what supercell has done this is outrageous. Also goodbye to everyone who thought legendaries at 3000 trophies. And fortune chest is just I guess something people want so hey know what legendary they get?
Actually I can still get legendaries in the shop at 3k trophies, just that it appears more OFTEN at 4k+
Also I feel you, my lvl 10 acct is on an old iPad 2 XD
You hit 4k? nice!
Na I’m still at 3.6k
Oh still good tho… I’ll be there in no timee
I believe that it’s not only because of them
It’s how iOS works.
Apple sucks androids has always been better.
Yeah, I’m pretty sure Clash Royale still works on like really old android phones(samsung G3 definitely works)
That’s incredibly biased lmao
hahahaha lol sorry
A reason to push up to 4k!
Yay I’m already in the new arena lol
Nice! Welcome to the new Arena! lol
same here also
Lol I have to wait 6 months for mine
2hrs or so for it!!!
anyone know how long till its out
Why does SC keep giving me leggies that i don’t need….
Just got yet another graveyard from quest leggie chest when i need princesses
That makes my graveyard lvl 3…
Dude I got my FOURTH night witch last week and I am still missing 4 cards, also graveyard is good while night witch is trash
I havent even got NW….
Lel if only I can give you one of mine
night witch is awesome bro!
I don’t use it, and I don’t really find her to be that useful as I mainly run control
What on earth! So unexpected! Wow. Well, I guess I’m in a new arena now.
idk if its out today or not i think so but idk
Nether do I, I think it is.
When is the update most likely to be? #I am in the new arena
Also are the balance changes implemented?
Yea I’m pretty sure it’s today
Update is today? SO EXCITED… Cr was dying… this update gave it a bump
sadly i am only in arena 9 with my only legendary being a miner 😐
Dude miner is really good
how he dosnt really do much damage to towers
Well lemme show you an example:
Your opponent sends a hog… you counter it using Goblin Gang
But they get zapped so only meele gobs left..
You added a miner at the tower and used your no healt gobs to make a good counter push…
that way mineer is used!
smart good idea
miner is very versatile, i say top 5 leggy list possibly
dude it does rocket damage to towers if ignored, and it takes care of elixir pumps really easily
I AM AT 3490 AND I REACHED THERE JUST TODAY SO I AM HAPPY!
The deck you should build is miner balloon. At your trophy range noone knows how to deal with it
Man i just told him that on discord! our thoughts match! xD
I remember when my 2nd account got night witch as the first legendary back when it was literally op af
Wow ur hwre
i am at 3600 ao im safe in this new area, (these new cards im hyped to get)
Sad got to legend last week
rip…. well your atleast in leggy arena
me too I wonder what their rarity are. (hopefully not legendary)
I would think the Hunter would be epic or rare, but the zappies are almost definitely a common card IMO.
It seems like all the common cards don’t have as much complexity I think the zappies are rare. (imo)
We were both wrong! There is a new rarity ( mythical)
yep me too im already at 3.6k
im at 3600 so im legit right in the middle of both arenas so im hyppedddd
I think like after tomorrow/tomorrow the update will drop
nah the update is scedualed for today
You are correct
i can’t believe that supercell launched an update without letting
any leaks out! Also it say unlock the two cards today! That means no month long wait!
happy for the new hunter card its a nice concept
The Hunter is a really cool concept. I really really like playing with Shelly and Bull in Brawl Stars due to their incredible shells.
I love the idea of a new arena! I hate it when I tilt a bit, and a few matches later, I am down in Hog Mountain again. I feel is incompetent…
Anyways, having an intermediary arena will be really nice, especially for those who are working their way up to Legendary Arena, because they will have a midway point to reach.
yes. pushing 800 trophies is rough on ladder… luckily im at 3600 which is right in the middle of both arenas
Nice, so you will get to se the new arena right when it comes!
Same i am at 3490 and i just reached there!
I am at 3906, and I am not sure if I want to drop just to check out the new arena. It would only be like 150 trophies though. If not, I could always just do some friendly battles in it to try it out.
It is a better idea than to drop
I know! I played for for hours yesterday trying to get to challenger one before the balance canges but the highest I got was 3900 exactly. I’m trying to think of an golem deck withouit the pump.
HOLD UP READ ME the crown towers princesses now have a SILVER crown! NEW SKINS CONFIRMED
my goal is to be 2 arenas higher than my level and it was so hard for level 9 O.O
is it out yet
You forgot that ^
lol sry gramer nazi much xd
Just messing with you dude. lol
ik so was i lol
the suspense is killing me xd
Oh my lord! The initial upset with the nerfs, especially with the hog meant I wasn’t really looking forward to this update, and especially quests being removed, however, these new features, especially the chests which look insane, mean the suspense will slaughter me all night! Soooo exited!
Yea it’s amazing!
dude i totally agree im hyped for this!
The update will be available tomorrow morning (Helsinki time)
how do u know that
nvm just came up in my news royale
They said it on reddit
Here’s the source: https://www.reddit.com/r/ClashRoyale/comments/7j30i2/news_update_coming_dec_12/
rip update now we have to wait till tommorrow
So sad D:
ahhhhhhhhhhh the hunter will REK tanks and hogs
Idk about that lol
The chests don’t seem clash royaly at all. Tell me what you think
HOLD UP READ ME the crown towers princesses now have a SILVER crown! NEW SKINS CONFIRMED
The hunter’s moustache and eyebrows are so glorious….
sadly we have to wait till tommorow
much sad 🙁
LOVE ZAPPY! I WANT HER AS A MERCH! AHHHH I WANT TO SLEEP WITH IT AND EAT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
christ man calm down its just a card bro
wtf…. you got autism or something? (im only joking)
I hape that it’s more than 2 cards tho… REALLY hope!
Wow… Your hope was so much powerfull… #royal ghost
yay now distance between hog mountain andelecto valley is 400 trophies only yet im 3.5
Much hype very excitement
Did somebody know when is gonna release the update in S-E Europe? 10:30 a.m.?
hunter is epic zappies are rare
nah, zappies epic, hunter opaf legy
Stop making up things. Zappies are rares, Hunter is epic.
seems chill to me
Seems legit to me….
I think Zappies are Common and Hunter is Epic
I really hope that the card is not legendary and can u only get those chest in electro valley
um, I think at least one legy
Do u really think it will be easy to get that legendary
Hunter is epic and the Zappys are rare
Aren’t Zappys Common?
Not according to the original post on reddit
YES OMG FOR SOME REASON THE UPDATE IS ALREADY IN RUSSIA OMGGGGGGGGG WTF
BUT WHY NOT IN cOREA???????????????????????
And the chest how much will they cost I don’t have gems right now wasted on smg
“Daily Gifts” Quest is always active? Im happy with the update. Hope it doesnt disappoints.
new arenas and chests ALWAYS wont dissapoint (i hope) lol
really hope hunter doesnt do as much damage as a point blank ranged bull O.o
this is honestly ind of an underwhelming update… remember when they said all the things they were working on?
does it mean hog mountain have no more legendary cards in that arena
No it means epic and legendary cards will appear more often at 4k trophies than at 3k range
nice im at 4k woop more cool cards for me
I’m still at 3600 🙁
bro, just get a deck that counters hog riders and heavy beat down and your golden ** hint (my deck does that)*
Pekka x bow?
Try Pekka, electro wizard, hog, executioner, skeleton army, fireball, zap, log/arrows.
I’m 3600 too!, enjoying the new arena? I like it when it lights up when it’s double elixir
Went down to 3400, although the main reason was that I was lagging heavily in like 3 battles and my game crashed in a 4th
legendary arena will be move to arena 12. what trophy is that arena
It will stay at 3800
in the shop?
shouldnt electro wiz be in electro valley
Dude, eWiz was BEFORE this, so its fine where it is.
they may move it
no, E – wiz has been out for awhile, they wont move him i think..
The E-Wiz is fine where it is right now but seeing the theme of this arena it definetly feels like E-wiz should be in Electro valley
Found a “last minute bug”. Update coming tm. St least or the US
I don’t quite get how the lightning chest works
maybe it would go like this:
let’s say you got 4 rages from the chest, and you hate it. so you can replace it with something else 5 times i guess
that seems cool
Yes!!! I keep getting teslas and bombers
when is the update coming in australia?
Well, considering how good the E-Wiz is, it needs to be nerfed. I love the E-Wiz, but it’s so good for 4 elixir, not too OP, but needs a nerf, I think a solid indirect nerf would be moving it to Electro Valley instead, as it doesn’t take too much skill to learn how to use, and is super strong. People who already have it in lower arenas could still keep it tho ofc
Well, I just got the electro wizard, and in my opinion I don’t think moving it to Electro Valley would be a good enough nerf, as legendary chests contain a legendary from any arena.
What rarity are the cards?
Zappiesare rare, hunter is epic
MOVE ELECTRO WIZARD TO THIS ARENA!!!
I saw them move inferno dragon to frozen peak for a few days last year
just checked online… that was a bug 🙁
I’ll be in the new arena!
They didn’t make any mention of fixing the god awful shop system. Throwing us deals for one epic when we need 2 to upgrade, or having bogus “gems for rares” deals is terrible, and honestly should be rehauled or restored to what it was before
The commons and rares part isn’t so bad but i agree that the epic cards and gem costs are stupid.
imo the commons is the worst deal. You can get 40 commons per request every seven hours. that means that you could get 180 commons per day for the cheap cost of nothing whereas for 20 commons it’s 200 gold. That also means your paying 100 gold per 10 comons. That is the worst value. (sorry for the rant lol)
technically the shop before had worse value because cost was exponential
First off, is the King’s Chest going to replace the Epic and Legendary chests? And second, the Zappies needs to be physical RC cars.
They do not replace
How much elixir is hunter? is musketeer even more dead now? Also, should I try to keep pushing as a level 9 now that i’ve hit 4k? Should I upgrade to level 10?
What do you mean upgrade
don’t upgrade…not worth. the hunter will be probably 5 elixir so it doesn’t completeley overshado the muskat
RIP Hunter is 4 elixir and it is good for that… as it has less hp it will be useless at 5
He has the same hp as a witch at tournament standard
Witch can summon skeletons and Her splash is better than hunter… so 5 elixir… and hunter 4 seems good to me..
yeah, it’s impossible to push beyond challenger one with your levels. also, you need to DONATE
I just met a lv8 at 4.3k…
didn’t he have overleveled cards(lvl 11 standards)
My 2nd acct once encountered a lvl 8 with a lvl 11 minion horde in BUILDERS
Yea it’s true
Exactly… lv12 common…lv10 rare…lv6 epic…and lv3 legendary…
Probably it’s his mini account
I am 99% sure that dude is p2w
pushing will be very hard as the enemys have 1000 plus tower health
I wouldn’t push yet, I’m lvl 10 and I’m struggling at the 3600 area cuz my cards are underleveled (cuz supercell keeps giving me the most useless cards like tesla and bomber)
hey look at ME i may be lvl 11, but i have NO MAXED OR ONE LEVEL UNDER MAX cards. also all my rares are either lvl 8 or below, my only lvl 6 epic is my profile pic, and no lvl 3 legendaries
I only have 2 lvl 11 commons
im still in league 1, where most people have lvl 12 ebarbs
Tesla isn’t useless dude…
When I replaced the daily gifts was already in, so does that mean it is already in usa west?
No. I live in Cali, and it’s not out yet for me.
i just thought
hmm, nice digest. quests will be less bad now with the daily quest(free chests) that didn’t get mentioned. also, i hope that the new cards will be balanced or if they’re op i get them. *evil laughter*
I like the other update but i despise the balance changes
Wait so you can only buy legendary at electro valley?NoNoNoNoNo ihavent bought any legendaries.Why didnt i buy that bandit 2 days ago.
No….legendaries will still be available to buy in the shop once you reach Arena 10 (Hog Mountain) as they have always been.
Update is out!!!
REALLY? I still have to wait 10 minutes…
Wow theres nothing about the royal ghost! ROYAL GHOST!
That’s because it’s not released yet
Didn’t anyone tap on the arena and check if there were any more new cards?
I did that lol
Welp i thought mini zappers gonna be good, guess not…
The 3rd card https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/345bff27c2f1281183906f4fce018926e288617a8f873b22280fc16bb328804b.jpg
