9 Stunning Tips for Players Above 4,000 Trophies


Hello guys, This is Bull3t$t0rm coming at you with tips to get better in Clash Royale…

This one is new!

clash royale tips

Tip #1 – Posture

Yup, You read it right. Does posture affect our gameplay? A BIG YES.

Wanna know how?

When we slouch, our head juts forward and tilts down, flexing anterior neck muscles and over stretching trapezius, splenius, and longissimus. Nerves in our neck, collarbones, torso, between the ribs, and through our core can become impinged, lessening their ability to relay signal between our brain and body… OMG I guess I went a bit too overboard.

Long thing short, A straight neck posture will get you better results than a slouchy one cause what you are exactly doing when you slouch is something similar to stepping on a hose pipe while water is passing through. The result is the slower speed with which water gets through.

The same can be said for nerves.

The magnitude of the issue in the latter case may be less than that of the former, but this might be the difference as to whether you stop a charging Bandit or not (if she ever charges again :/ I feel the so-called FIX was too much. Another topic for it later).

You just play with different postures, and you will know better as to why I recommend a straight neck.

Tip #2: The importance of Soliloquy

Soliloquy refers to an act of talking to oneself

Not like this^ tho. Lemme tell you what I do and why I do to get a better understanding.

I will ask three questions consciously every game to myself and will ask it in regular interval, let’s say 10-15 seconds once till I get the answer.They are

What is the opponent’s deck?

And am I able to decipher it 100% having seen few cards on his deck? Sometimes you will be able to get an answer to this question having seen two cards, say, Knight and Princess…

CONGRATS!!! You are right.

For someone, it will take time to get the answer for the question and others it will be relatively easy and is based on how much you play and the volatility/diversity of the meta.

What are his counters to your win-conditions?

Assume I am a Graveyard player (I am actually) and I am playing an off meta GY control deck.

It’s imperative that I know his counters to my win condition whether it be a squishy troop that can be Arrowed or Valk/Archers which must be out-cycled before I play my win-condition.

It not only applies to GY but any other win-condition.

What are the spells your opponent has? 

Why spells and why not other cards?

It’s simple, spells provide so much value, and once I came to know his spell, I can consciously avoid or at least try to avoid giving value to my opponent.

And now as to why I ask this question consciously to myself every game in the form of a soliloquy.

Its simple, cause we are humans.

It can be better explained regarding other game and relating it to this game. Lets take CS:GO where after playing that game for a while, shooting becomes muscle memory (can do it sub consciously).

Since we get a pervasive feel-good effect after getting 1-2 kills we let our sub-conscious memory take over forgetting that its the shooting that became muscle memory and we still have to think and strategise as to where to go? Should I fall back or hold? And many more.

The same applies to this game.

That’s the reason why we get a feel that we are playing better after giving a long gap because we tend to play consciously. That’s the reason why I consciously implemented those questions every game so that I tend to be more consistent.

Try this out, and you will find a huge difference in your consistency.

Tip #3 – Play defensively first

Do not attack first unless you see an advantage. Don’t use your troops unless there is something to be gained.

Some decks are based on constant chip damage while others based on heavy pushes. Even tho their approaches are different; the substratum are the same.

For example, gaining Elixir Advantage.

Elixir being the substratum of the game. It’s imperative that we use the additional resource provided in game to gain Elixir advantage aka Princess Tower. For that to happen, we need to engage opponents troops in our side rather than the other side.

Do you want another reason to play defense? Well, once upon a time, a wise man said:

“To secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.” 

If we extrapolate the same here, It means to defend your virginity till your opponent makes a mistake.

Tip #4: Learn micro plays on a daily basis

For those who don’t know what is the difference between macro and micro, I suggest you guys watching this video.

I would say success in pro scene is based on 10% micro and 90% macro.

In pro scene, micro plays have very less inference as most of the micro plays are deep rooted into those players, and they tend to make no mistake or the chances of making the same are pretty less as it became muscle memory for them.

Then how one guy is winning over the other? Yup, you guessed it right. The macro play has more inference in pro games.

If you take any game in current CCGS, matches are won in 3 ways

  1. Having a counter deck and playing right
  2. Getting 1 step ahead of an opponent by giving importance to macro, i.e., by knowing opponent cycle or elixer count and his possible counter to our current move and making a predictive move to reduce the options opponent has or counter the opponent’s action.
  3. The opponent making blunder(I thought it would be rare to see those in BIG STAGE like CCGS but I was wrong.Well, who am I to judge…Pressure might be a reason as well)

So to become a pro player, the 1st step is to learn all or most of the micro plays inside of the game and make it our muscle memory. Which makes us ready 10%.

If we gained mastery over that 10%, the remaining 90% of-of our success is a cake walk as it gives us time inside the game to think about macro plays without worrying how to defend as micro play became out muscle memory.

For that to happen to learn all possible micro plays with your deck.

This is one of the reasons as to why I suggest people stick with one deck and play it over and over.

Tip #5: Watching Replays

This tip is for those who are like me…

Who feel it’s pathetic to cry for the same thing twice i.e. Losing a battle ’cause you made that frucking mistake again. Losing is fine, It is.. to err is human. Losing cause of that err once? Fine . Twice? Not bad.

Again and again? There is a serious problem.

Let it be game or life, I refrain myself doing same stuff which failed me before.

How could I do that? It’s simple.

The first step is realization.

“Realisation is a matter of becoming conscious of that which is already realized”

Let’s spot our own err and be critical while doing so.Watch our replay is the only way we can stop this pitiful occurrence.

Tip #6 – Aim Higher

Whenever you are nearing your target, say 4600, and you are around 4550 or 4500, immediately change your target to 4900 and dream how cool it would be to reach that one.

Think about it over and over again about that cool Master I Draft Chat.

Why should it be done? There are two different answers for this:

How our emotion affects our gameplay

For example: We all will be excited when we are near the goal… is that it?

Nah most of the time (always?) our goal will be greater than our Personal best. Our goal there will be excitement along with the fear.

The most precise word I could think of is exhilarationThat will pump in more adrenaline along with shaky hands, sweaty palms, etc.

By changing our goal, this can be avoided as achieving our goal is nothing but achieving what we thought we are capable of doing.

Change your thought, change your Clash Royale life.

Well, there was only 1 in my mind…Since I stated 2, here we go..

There is a good ol’ saying that if you achieve your target, your target is WRONG! :p

Tip #7 – Plan Ahead

This is just a combination of knowing opponents cycle (not all cards, just try to remember his win conditions and his hard counters to your win-condition), a rough estimate of opponents Elixir (+ or – 1 is just fine) and prediction.

Prediction is the ultimate goal as it keeps us one step ahead of our opponent

Prediction is a ChildsPlay when we master the first two.

At first, it might feel a bit too much to have a note of but believe me, keep these in mind and when time progresses, it will become natural phenomena.

Try predicting every move of the opponent.

Think what you would do if you have those cards in your cycle with the Elixir you have for which as i said we must master the first two. The answer will be obvious when we can keep track of the first two.

The next step is simple… how are we going to counter his potential move.

It might sound a bit too much but it will be easy 🙂

Tip #8 – Deck and Time

This is an important concept and worth mentioning.

It’s all about knowing which deck has the advantage when time progresses.

For example, a full Lavaloon push with Lightning and supports is so hard to counter unless you have certain cards in your deck.

You might ask ”What I have to do with time?”

To pull out such a combination, we need so much Elixir which is not possible to gain in the first 2 minutes.

Ones deck’s power is directly proportional to time progression than the opponent.

It’s important to find which side you are i.e will it be detrimental to us when we hit double Elixir or it will be favourable for us?

Based on the answer to the above question our play style differs.

For example: If we are going to gain during double Elixir , its better for us to defend completely during the first 2 minutes and vice versa.

Tip #9 – The Ultimate Learning

The above 8 tips or so is just nothing compared to this.

This is the ultimate learning I learnt a few days back which has a huge impact on my life.I would love to share it!

We must always count on any battle to take lots of unexpected twists and turns.

To respond properly and in time we must free our mind of all other thoughts.

To have confidence is one thing but over-confidence can cause us to become careless and we tend to miss things that we normally would not.

For those who are wondering about the difference between confidence and over-confidence. I will define this.

Confidence is “No matter what I will do my best”, where I am thinking of something which is within my control.

Whereas over-confidence is “Bring it on NooBBBB…I will trash you!!”, where I am thinking of something which is beyond my control i.e framing that I am better than my opponents.

Only the one who can erase all idle thoughts and concentrate completely will control the battle.

If you are a BMing guy STOP. Just stop for your betterment.

If you start thinking how opponent feels you are just wasting your capacity while you could have thought of a better strategy. No hard feelings tho.

– Adios


  1. Also for the last tip, dont just watch your own replays. Watch pros play and see what they do in situations. Using a meta deck? perfect! just go to tv royale, and watch the pros play their decks.

    • But don’t just watch a tv royale replay and try and use a meta deck that a pro used if you don’t know and have never played the deck before. JUst coz a pro uses the deck doesn’t mean it’s the best deck for YOU.

  2. Am I the only one who loves and feels satisfied after doing pro micro things such as countering Minion Horde by Skeletons? XD

  3. About the soliloquy…. I know you don’t literally mean talking to your self but if I’m playing for a friend and literally lay out what I’m going to be doing and why, I play better.

  4. ‘And am I able to decipher it 100% having seen few cards on his deck? Sometimes you will be able to get an answer to this question having seen two cards, say, Knight and Princess…

    CONGRATS!!! You are right.’

    Knight and Princess doesn’t just mean logbait, it could mean Hog Cycle as well!

  5. 100% every tip is accurate and really does help. A couple seasons ago I was struggling 4800 and I found a “talking to yourself in your head” tip similar to what you explained in your guide. I tried it out asking the basic questions, and that alone improved my gameplay with the same deck to the point where I reached 5195 the next day! Also the slouching one lol very technical but I should try it out, who knows, maybe I could hit 7000 trophies with a straight posture! jkjk 🙂 very well done guide tho

  6. Lol u can’t decipher even 1 single deck in jungle arena….People just throw in random over levelled cards and call it a deck

    • I agree. a few of these tips apply to sub 4k people but id say that the figuring out peoples decks only works above 4k and even better above 5k

      • That is because many 5k+ players use meta decks so it’s relatively easy.Still u can find some random decks

    • IKR. It is very very annoying as it occurs even in early arena 11 and most of arena 10 especially because the good meta decks are not built to handle those sorts of decks. Take Spell Bait for example. I just versed a person with Ebarbs, LH, Balloon and Hog Rider in the same deck at 3600 trophies. That is literally impossible to beat.

    • so true.. it’s also true for people in hog mountain to league 2. they use more than 4 win conditions, or non at all….

  7. This is the 1st part of the sequel(for Scarlet’s fan-fiction) that I wrote hope you enjoy, BTW it is called the Fall of the Cannon (Will I would love it if you posted this)


    King James was throwing out all he had to stop the enemy forces from taking down the tower. Suddenly the king rushes with a giant, and James counters with a cannon. Danny steps onto the arena floor and runs forward to meet the giant.


    The giant reaches down and delivers a crushing blow to the cannon, and another, and another, the major defensive building in King James’s team is failing for the first time. The giant slams Danny and throws him out of the arena.


    The giant heavy steps resonate throughout the arena.


    The giant is simply feet from King James’s tower.


    James desperately sends a lumberjack with his remaining 4 elixir.


    The giant is hit hard relentlessly but continues forward. The heavy arm reaches forward.



    King James falls from the crumbling tower and hits the ground hard, trophies spilling out.

    Another 35 trophies gone.

    Another loss… the whole castle was depressed, King James had gone from 2892 to 2000 since the update that nerfed the cannon, me. I went down to King James’s (my dad’s) quarters. I tried the door and it was unlocked so I walked in and saw King James lost in thought.

    “ Well um, hey dad” I said. My dad gave me an uneasy look.

    “Well Danny, I was thinking”… “that after battling for so long you must be tired, and you might want to leave the battle team for a little while so you have time to relax and have fun”. He tried for his most optimistic look.

    “Well I mean I am not that tired from battling, and I kind of want to stay” I said slowly. “Is there another reason why you do not want me in the battle team”? I continued,

    “Oh Danny have you not heard” He said sadly, he then showed me today edition of News Royale.

    “ Introducing our new member of clash royale, the Cannon Cart. Better than the regular cannon in every way, the cannon cart has a fast movement speed, and when it loses all it’s health, it goes from a cannon on wheels to a cannon not on wheels”. “This much better substitute for the cannon will be coming out in 2 days and will be unlockable from builders workshop”.

    Thank You

    I was lost for words…

    “The Night Witch has struck again I fear” James said.

    Scared and confused for the state of my role in the battle team I slowly backed away from King James and left the room. I stay in my room for the rest of the day, “What if I am kicked out of the battle team” I think to myself.

    Those are the last thoughts I had before I fall down on my bed fast asleep.

    The next day…

    “Hey Mavey” I greeted my lumberjack friend.

    “Did you hear, King James’s sister Cadey here today and King James wants to do a friendly battle with her”.

    Just then Danny and Mavey disappear from sight, and find themselves sitting on benches.

    “Oh the friendly battle just started” Mavey realizes.

    They see Cadey flash a smirky grin at King James from the opposing tower.

    King James simply responds by saying good luck

    Suddenly the crowd cheers. Cadey had just placed down a giant and executioner.

    King James counters by running a hog rider(Joe) on the other side and zaps the skeletons that pop up while stunning Cadey’s tower at the same time. He then places Scarlett in the middle of the executioner and the giant which in turn kills the executioner.

    After taking down the executioner Scarlett steps forward and swings her axe trying to take down the giant.

    Undaunted Cadey laughs out loud surprising everyone in the arena. She pulls a lever.

    An eerie noise fills the air…

    Bats appear and demolish Scarlett,

    The eerie noise continues…

    and then out of the horde steps out Raven,

    Thoughts of fear race down Danny’s mind like ice

    Cadey had got the Night Witch, and the Night Witch was coming, coming for King James, and one cannon, one cannon different from the rest.

    The fall of the cannon had only begun…

  8. I’m stuck at the fringe of Royal Arena. Does anyone have any decks I could use? The only legendary I have is Ice Wizard. I’ve been using Mortar Rocket and doing OK, but it just isn’t fun…

  9. When you don’t have good guides and you decide to repost this.
    Who wants a guide on my succesful Sparky NW Giant deck?

  12. ever since I reached 4200 trophies half a year ago I can’t get past it and now I’m at the border of legendadry arena, anybody hhelp me?

  13. It’s official. Every server hates you. Please grow up and stop acting like a d*ck. I guess it’s fun to make fun of other people because of your own insecurities huh?

  14. You know how pros advise against playing while ill? I just won a ladder match and got to about 200 trophies left to reach Electro Valley (Or I guess Techno Valley) and I am still feeling ill. I live in California, and I guess some fire smoke has somehow got to my lungs
    I’ll have a video tomorrow.
