Part Clash of Clans, part Hearthstone, Clash Royale burst on the scenes with more hype than the royal baby. The game pits players against each other, 1 on 1, in a series of 3 minute matches where you deploy troops from the Clash of Clans IP to destroy your enemy’s tower, while he attempts the same. Unlike “of Clans”, both players are online simultaneously and have to manage both offense and defense. Winning matches and just being around earns you packs of random cards / troops that improve your abilities in the match.
What did they get right? What did they get wrong? And is it strategy?
