Balance Update Live! (4/25)

The way we approach card balance in Clash Royale is a combination of playtesting, listening to the community and looking at the stats. You can expect regular balance updates to keep gameplay fine tuned and as fun as possible.

In this balance update we're taking a look at Dark Prince, Spear Goblins, Barbarian Barrel and more!

Watch the quick video!
