This is going to be a new story series I start where I take an interesting, more serious dive into a day in the arena from the perspective of a certain card. Day 1: The Princess.
Stacey was sitting in the back, getting ready for her deployment. She was only ever really known as 'The Princess' and so she barely had an identity in the Arena. That didn't matter anyway; the armor they gave her and all princesses was so fragile that no princess could survive even the lightest of attacks. As she looked at her bow, she recalled the years of extensive training she had undergone specifically for this moment, and wished that she at least had a helmet to protect her face.
As Stacey heard the trumpets blare outside, she knew that it was almost go-time a…Read more >
I have written blog posts about how to "fix" Clash Royale, and one about how to get to higher arenas as an F2P. I have not, however, made a post on how I feel about the game as a whole. This is a very broad topic, and focuses less on balance, and more on gameplay, leaderboard balance, and gameplay balance. I feel as though too many focus on game balance, and too little on gameplay and leaderboard. This is why I wrote this blog post, and why I will be covering these topics.

Here are some problems and how I feel that they could be fixed.

Here we are. I'm not going to tell you how to play, but I want to help anyone I can. I am in Frozen Peak as a free to play, and I never had to use Royal Giant. So, let's get started.
1. The Important Stuff. In my experience, the deck you make is the most important part of getting higher. Skill is there too, but no matter how skilled you are you will need a good deck. So, let's look at the deck that got me to Royal Arena the first time. I can't upload a photo, so I'll just tell you.

At first glance, this may seem balanced, but after I got to Royal Arena, I repeatedly lost. Why did this happen? There are many reasons. I won't tell all of them, …Read more >
