Touchdown Mode – Best Tips for You!
What is 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. There is also sudden death phrase.
- Cards like Graveyard, Miner, Goblin Barrel etc cannot be placed past the middle.
This game mode is very different to what we usually play. Cards that are good in normal games might not exactly be that useful in this mode.
Spells aren’t as effective in this Touchdown, the Tower damage doesn’t exist here and spawners are finally overpowered! It’s chaotic here and almost a completely new meta.
Buildings you should pick:
I cannot stress this enough. Having the right buildings in Touchdown would give you tons of advantages.
Mortar and X-Bow are probably one of the top picks.
I recommend cards like Furnace, Goblin Hut, Barbarian Hut etc as well because they are good at defending as well as exerting pressure because each Fire Spirits, skeleton, Goblin or Barb that spawns has the potential to cross the Touchdown!
You can drop a spawner and pressure the other side of the arena while the spawner continuously sends wave after wave and distract them allowing your spawner to send something over the line!
Pick crowd control spells
Try to avoid spells like Clone, Heal, Lightning etc.
While good in regular play they aren’t the best in this in my honest opinion.
You ideally want to have spells that can get value as loads of troops will be bunched together, each will have it’s moments where the spell shines and where it does not.
Pick at least one of these If you have the chance!
Have good air and ground DPS!
You will need cards that can take down cards like Golem, Lava Hound etc while only being able to place cards in a limited region.
Cards like P.E.K.K.A aren’t that great in this mode because of just how many swarms there are and chances are you may not have cards like Log/Zap etc to remove swarms.
Pick troops that have good crowd control and range
Princess is one of the best cards in this mode. She is excellent to bait out cards and spells.
Dart Goblin is also really good at controlling a really large radius.
As for crowd control, Executioner, Wizard, Bowler etc are very good at filling this spot. Valk post buff is also a really good troop in this spot.
Using these cards at the last seconds of the match is one of the most satisfying things. For sure.
Make sure you have already had at least one building-targeting troop to make the most of them.
Best Cards in Touchdown
In this game mode, everything is a win condition and ought to be treated that way.
Battle Ram is a must-pick.
It is fast, targets only buildings and spawns Barbarians that could potentially be in the touchdown. If your opponent just spent all of their Elixir and you play a Ram in the opposite lane, it is nearly impossible to stop it from scoring if supported correctly.
Hog Rider (Currently removed) – Automatically pick Hog Rider as this is the Hogdown Mode!!!!
Mini P.E.K.K.A and P.E.K.K.A need 2 hits to kill him. Paired up with a well timed Rage this can equal an easy point.
Balloon – The Balloon is insane in this mode.
This card is really strong if you have a tank, similar to Lavaloon, Golem, Giant etc in front, making it a very deadly card for your opponents to deal with as they do not always have air-targeting cards in hand.
They are perfectly capable of crushing big tanks then charge at your opponent’s defenses.
Also, due to the exclusive skin, just pick them.
Spawner (Tombstone, Furnace, Goblin Hut and Barbarian Hut)
Spawner puts on constant pressure which requires a response for the whole match. Builds up massive Elixir advantages while pulling Hogs and Rams.
Barbarian Hut isn’t as great as the other 3 because of the Barbarians’ sluggish move speed but it still offers a lot of value.
Golem – This bad boy has a ton of HP that your opponent has to deal with and tanks for whatever is behind him.
Playing him early isn’t that huge of an issue because getting rushed really isn’t that much of a threat in 2v2.
The Golemites are usually the MVPs in Golem games because dealing with the Golem and the almost 1000 HP Golemites is just so annoying.
Mega Knight – Fast, splashes, has tons of health, has spawn damage to kill stuff before counter pushing. Lots of value.
Although not a must, he is a very good addition to a potential huge push.
Poses a threat by himself, too but he is easily distracted and because of the nature of draft this pick can either be rather good for you, or actually pretty useless.
Lava Hound – He is just so good in this mode because of the Lava Pups.
The most interesting part is that when it pops out, there are chances that your Lava Pups hit the touchdown.
I’ve had my opponent destroying the Lava Hound last second only for the Pups to spawn past the touchdown…
Witch and Night Witch
They spawn fast moving units which deal a lot of damage and require responses.
The Witch is especially useful in Touchdown because it not only can deal with swarms but also single hard hitters with her Skeletons
Lumberjack – He himself is a fast moving threat and after he dies, the Rage can be very very threatening especially if you have a Hog, Balloon etc following him. Or even a Battle Ram.
These will speed up and chances are they will manage to make it across the line quite easily.
Princess and Dart Goblin
Their very long range makes them very effective in Touchdown.
Just drop them at the very front and watch it snipe a damaged Minion Horde, killing them all in no time.
Also not all the time your opponents have The Log so they are just so good here.
Shared by GetRektS0n and lolman
I learn from oj vids, golem plus lavahound equal win
e barbs and ram are pretty much unstoppable
They are very easy to stop…
ram is a maybe, the one thats really op in this is hog rider
yes. without a building hog rider will always win
Goblin Barrel is pretty much useless in touchdown….there’s no point just not using regular goblins instead. Goblin barrel needs deploy time too and time in air and goblins cost 1 elixir. The point of goblin barrel is to reach the tower so yh it’s just stupid in touchdown. On the other hand hog is just massively op
hog is easy to stop if u have horde or buildings on hand(or pekkas); otherwise, your screwed
true. since touchdown is draft you need sppecific counters to hog so yeah if you don’t recieve or pick proper counters it’s really hard to counter
2nd nobody claimed
How many guides have u written radioactive?

i’ve done 3. I have half-term break next week so i’m gonna write more. I want the $20 gift card 🙂
Are you British?
yep. But I used to live in canada so my currecy is in CAD
wow i predicted your ethnicity with no background knowledge at all
OH WAT WTFYEYFEUHF EWIUFU EFUE)#@)E*#@R) HO

Watch the libyan army fail ‘God Save The Queen’
was the queen dying or something when they wrote your anthem?
The queen must be saved from this anthem.
what for real? or in relation to this anthem?
for real. DId they think “Oh, if i make a song then Queen will iive”, so they sent a DM to God through that song?
Home of fat truckers, beer and cheeseburgers
You do know it’s the “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave”, right? Idk a true American who would mix those up. Doesn’t even make sense
dude that was on purpose why would i post it otherwise?
anyway you can quiz me on us states and everything i probably know more than you.
i’ve gotten 6 guides posted
ive done 6
im writing a SParky one
Hey guys did you know you can actually kill the goblin referee with any damage spell if u cast it immediately after the match starts?
yeah i saw oj’s vid. He explodes into black and white confetti. Is that meant to be there?
i think supercell put that in as an easter egg, im not sure tho
Yea cuz otherwise it wouldn’t be there
cuz if it was a glitch and not supposed to be there the goblin ref would just disappear glitchily. If he disappeared into black and white confetti it suggests the goblin ref was supposed to die as an easter egg.
p.s. I feel bad for the goblin ref he just wanted to ref a match because he didn’t wanted to die 🙁
yah but I kill him anyway just for the heck of it
Y’know, gotta waste that starting elixir on a bean that wants to be a zebra. Best thing in the world, with that POSITIVE elixir trade.
Yes, that needs to be fixed
It doesn’t need to be fixed. It’s not even a bug since it was intentionally put there.
I tried to poison it, but didnt work lol
Really? You pick Fireball as a good spell and Lightning as a bad one?
Why would you use fireball agaisnt a near wizard/musketeer/ if they aren’t going to die?
Lightning, Poison, Log, Tornado and Arrows are the best spells in Touchdown.
Yes fireball is better than lightning in this mode in my opinion but it’s arguable, simply because the chance to get more value. While it cannot kill a fireball and musket if they won’t die, it can clear out more pesky higher threat troops like horde for an example. It’s arguable for either case but overall it’s down to preference in spells I myself prefer say a rocket over a lightning spell despite the range and the fact that rocket takes more skill to use.
Lolman is correct
Lolman is never incorrect
You got it my young padawan
Heal can actually be a useful and surprising card in this game mode
I am really used to crown tower killing skeletons and low hp troops
It’s really hard to manage elixir
Yeah pretty annoying.
my friend said that i suck after he drafted heal over pekka and giant over loon, and i drafted just fine, then he started saying that i was casper in clan chat after because he didn’t want to admit he was wrong
when i tried to tell him today he just said pekka sucks
The author mentioned that spells such as heal spell should be avoided in touchdown mode! I don’t think so because it is one of the most useful spells as it can heal a low health hog rider or battle ram or giant if they almost reached the end zone, so it can help them survive and get a touchdown! I have done this myself during a battle where a giant was at low health when it almost reached the endzone, i used heal spell to heal the giant to prevent him from getting killed by enemy troops and scored a touchdown which helped me win the game!
heal isnt as good as other spells like rocket and poison
it is better in touchdown than usual
I GOT BANNED FROM DISCORD CRA. WHAT IS THIS. WILL THIS IS ILLEGAL
I am the Senate
i am the judge
I am The Doctor
im ur mom
It’s treason, then.
I’m the presiden… the toilet cleaner.
Banning isn’t for no reason
new poll : what do you think is gonna be the worst epic card for touchdown mode? I think it’s gonna be Poison cuz I can’t think of anything.
My neither so same
kinda like a golem, but worse.
Prince coz why not
Prince is actually really good. PEKKA has to be the worst epic card here.
Nope, pekka kils tanks and hogs pretty fast
Probably, but keep in mind that it’s really useful if you have no buildings and your teammate doesn’t have much elixir! U need something like PEKKA in those situations
poison or pekka
cant think of anything other than mirror
The worst card Imo is the royal g
He’s like a more expensive giant with less hp
hog rider should be banned
Well he isnt 🙂
he was going to be
btw you can actually kill the referee using zap log or arrows
many people have been told this already
Ikr. U can kill them with other spells too, but almost everyone knows this
Is that why me teammate keep trying but he never got it
wow why do u wanna kill him… MURDEREr
We watched OJ’s video (:
The authoelr played Touchdown??
The clone is must pick card! It is so powerfull.
Yeah lol clone can be countered very easily though if you follow the tip of having good range and crowd control. And or pick spells like poison
When will the new arena come ?
Lets just hope that its in december update.
i think this is the new arena (the touchdown arena)
It’s not really guaranteed mate. (Tell me if I’m wrong)
You know that mods can ban you?
Anybody buys gems?
I. Have bought gems
great tips and gamemode, but whe nyour teamate leaves..
then u loose
There is a mistake in the guide: The pekka and mini-pekka kill the hog in 2 hits.
This is not true. Pekka’s and mini-pekka’s take 3 hits to kill a hog
Other than that, great one!
With tower is 2
But if the towers are distracted by say a ice golem it’s 3 hits
and in TD there aren’t any towers
Hey, is there a CRA 2v2 tournament or sth?
There’s a clan with blaze in it that says “Official clan for CRA 2v2 championship”
I actually don’t know, i was wondering myself
Yea i think there is, but i don’t know what where how and when
OMG IM GONNA JOIN
there is, i am in it. registration is closed
I was thinking of making hte clan “Nova l CRA”, but yeah…
Haf to join discord to join
I just had an epic match, me and my clanmate were playing touchdown, but right after he picked the cards his wifi stopped, so i couldn’t do anything, i did try my best tho. so it was 2-0 for them, and a goblin was going to make it 3-0, but then right there my teammate got back and we 3-crowned them : I
wow, the very clutch comebacks
Lightning is actually quite good since it easily could give you an elixir advantage.
true hog lightning is broken
Anything can give u an elixer advantage… he means that troops are often clumped so are spells give alot of value
Lightning is powerful because it can destroy up to 3 units instantly. It’s best synergy is actually with balloon, not hog rider.
Lightning can win you the game it’s called the hailmary Lightning where you kill 2-3 attacking troops as your units crosses the end zone all day! They got “Mossed”
welll, every card has the potential to win the game in specific situations
one game i got the choice of skarmy AND minion horde… u can already tell wat i chose
Minion Horde duh
no its cause they were in different selections it was like skarmy and guards and minion horde or bomb tower or something like that
It’s a football reference
except for sparky 😉
was he a gem bot?
wat… the comment was deleted
Hog lightning or hog heal. Guaranteed td.
Hog lightning isn’t that strong as you can spread your defense
Sure…well give it a try and see the results. Haven’t faced anyone that could stop it so far if I get the cards.
It is strong, but not guaranteed TD at all, and i played it a few times, hog heal is pretty strong tho
if they are having to spread there defense it probably wont even kill fast enough to get the hog
skeleton army but also in my opinion hog poison is really good as well or fireball or lightning
no hog mirror on both sides
i think rage might finally get some airtime!
not really rage is only good if its used on a large push this push is likley just a lone hog or something
lumberjack and dart goblin are underrated
Zapping the Ref also gets you a TD
no it doesn’t
Hahah it was a joke
I was confused at first
it gets u confette
Poison is useless. Gob gang and minions go right through it. Also, Xbow sucks and executioner/tornado are still op in this mode.
X-bow is incredibly clutch at times along with mortar
xbow is powerful becauseit has huge range and can just do chip damage to everything that they place down
Maybe you just suck
check oj’s video about where to position buildings in touchdown mode
4 tiles from the end, got it
if you are talking about the “moan” then that’s cool
I always pop the referee goblin if I hv a cheap spell
its mean though…
Hitting a neutral player
on my very first game of touchdown my teammates giant skelly bomb killed the ref
But how? doesn’t everything reset
nope! the bomb from the gs stays and it blows up.
Oh i didn’t know
no it doesnt… y u think ppl always try to use spells on the ref… o yea freeze doesnt work on the ref i tried it already
Yeah i figured it out the bomb doesn’t reset, lightning doesn’t work too
i choose to not believe that it takes to long unless it was in the time in between touchdowns maybe and that would mean somebody would have to score a touchdown
It’s true, has happened with me
It’s hilarious when that happens!
ikr and it was my FIRST GAME
Just saying the mega knight can stop a hog at the extreme side of the field by stopping it from moving
Yea you’re right
It’s very annoying when you are the hog player!
Tried to kill the referee with lightning, didn’t work, lost 6 elixir, lost the game, RIP
xD i hate that it doesn’t work
saaame but i won
xD you probably had some elite 6000 boy as a teammate
no, he was at 2700
or higher, i forget
haha, killing the referee is hilarious!
Killed him with arrows. Replay tommorrow.
Only kill the ref in touchdown practice, not in the actual challenge, because you can’t lose the practice
I used arrows on him… He poofed into black and white confetti.
I apologize for the Black bars on the sides.
I know, i tried it with lightning
in my opinion the only two spells worth grabbing in this challenge is lightning and poison cause they control the two main ways to defend your offensive hog or golem or any win condition really well
Lightning and Zap are my favorites because they’re instant
Log is great for killing the referee
…but useless! lol
btw if you playing bowler and somebody plays hog rider all the way on one side you should place bowler all the way because the hog will get stuck
Yeah, that happened to me when playing hog, and the worst part is: there was a golem too so my hog got nowhere
yeah it’s a neat trick
Is there a point where I’d lose because of luck?
The only luck in this gamemode is draft picks, but even then you can overcome that by playing well.
So it’s like. You get bad cards, but you can still win.
P.S. 6 wins!
It’s phases. Like first phase. And you score a touchdown? Like all the places it’s says “hit the touchdown””past the touchdown” it should actually say “reach the goal line” got a touchdown” hell even scored is better. I felt stupid reading this post…
Hmm in touchdown try to use hog freeze it is most effective and tornado too
There’s no Hog for now
the comment u replied to was from a month ago XD
Poll: Do you like Touchdown?
its kind of fun, but really depends on what card you get.
poll: should destroyer stop doing sh!t polls?
It’s actually quite good, so… NO.
Poll: Should you stop hating?
First after repost!
RIP Hog in touchdown…

lel rip me i got 0-3
how much does it cost to do it again? I’m currently 5-2
How long does this thing last?
Second after repost no one claimed!!!
Third! Post repost
3rd after repost
Beat ya to it!

I hope your Scarlett so then people would stop bugging me asking whens the next “Cannon’s Dream”

5th after repost
If I write a detailed PEKKA Splashyard deck, will it get posted???
depends on how detailed it is! if you write well and explain how to use the deck, it will most likely get posted! good luck!
I hate tombstone most in touchdown…
TBH I just overall dislike touchdown…
totally not on topic but hit legendary arena today! so happy making a guide on the deck that got me there
Can’t wait to hear the deck
Off topic, but I’m in league 2 now!
noice, I’m not even in league 1
im not even in legendary arena
LOL me too, i’m a noob
Not even in legendary
I got 8-3 on my plastic-screened kindle fire account
Next thing we know, there’s gonna be a touchdown, 2v2, draft, triple elixir, mirror mode.
I wonder what would happen if Supercell ever makes a 3v3 mode…?
i sound like a noob for saying this but it sounds really fun
That would be awesome
yesss…. went 9-2 (I love touchdown)
Sidenote: I got my second sparky from a crown chest today, AND got a legendary chest from battle
Got 5-3, at least I got that far.
I got 4-3 on my main because all my teammates were either afk or were level 9 in Frozen Peak or Jungle Arena, but I managed to get 8-3 on my plastic-screened Kindle Fire because I did the challenge early.
i complete every touchdown challenge
Since when was clone or heal good in regular play? (don’t be triggered clone/heal users)
1st after repost
I think tombstone can be a great offense card: 3 elixir, spawns 18 doots in total. Although I have to say the defensive capabilities suck.
Main tip would be to team up with a good player with communication, use ram, freeze and tornado and put cards all around the pitch and you are guaranteed to win the challenge like I did.
one of the only gamemodes where barb hut is actually op
Honestly, Dart Goblin is borderline OP in touchdown
I completely missed the challenge 🙁
