Season 18 will come with a very interesting new card - the Mother witch - a 4 elixir Legendary card that has a very interesting mechanic! She is a ranged troop that does little damage, but will place a curse on any troop she attacks. Once the troop dies, it will turn into a weaker, building-targeting Hog that will fight for you! You will have tons of changes to unlock this new card during the month of December, as almost EVERY challenge will include the Mother Witch as a prize.
This month, we are seeing a balance change like no other: 11 cards are seeing some MAJOR reworks and changes. Let's take a look:
Starting in 2021, Clash Royale will begin to push balance updates less frequently - from now on, there will be much bigger balance updates that will only coincide with game updates. Now this doesn't restrict balances to only updates - and it means that the dev team is actually more free to balance on the fly. This means that, if a card suddenly becomes super OP and oppressive in the meta, the dev team can simply balance the card on the spot. On the bright side, the dev team has also said that they will have 4 updates planned for 2021 - one for each quarter. Can’t wait to see what exactly they have planned!
The CRL World Finals are this weekend - lasting from December 5th to 6th at 12PM UTC+8. If you haven't made a fantasy royale lineup for it yet, you probably should, as you can get a free emote by just making one! The teams for this world finals are more stacked than ever, so we should see some of the best gameplay ever! The finals will be streamed here.
Redditor u/DavidRS_Art has made some stunning Clash Royale fanart! His drawings are epic, and you can actually download these images in the comments of the reddit page!
This is the last one I already had done. Soon I'll be posting new ones. The downloads links for all the art i have posted will be on the comments... from r/ClashRoyale
Next up we have u/Lenzsch, who has created some 3D renders of a Sparky. Amazing attention to detail!
The Season 18 Balance Changes will definitely change the upcoming meta quite significantly. Let's take at some of the changes:
