If you were wondering what will March bring new to Clash Royale, then the answer, for now, is a new balance update that will focus on Barbarians, X-bow, Wall Breakers, Bomb Tower and more.
The changes have just been announced on Clash Royale Twitter and we’re here to break them down for you. You should know that these buffs and nerfs will go live in an update that will roll on 4 March.
Clash Royale Nerfs and Buffs in March
Barbarians get a mixed balance, the good news is that the troop count is increased to 5 from 4, but HP was lowered by 13%.
The reason why the team behind Clash Royale did this is that the original squad wasn’t used in competitive play because of a low win rate:
“The goal of this change is to indirectly support cards like Magic Archer and Royal Hogs by providing a pure ‘Fireball bait’ deck with solid anti-tank damage dealer in place of Lumberjack or Mini P.E.K.K.A,” wrote the team on their Reddit post.
The HP change will affect cards like Battle Ram, Barbarian Hut, Barbarian Barrel.
Bomb Tower gets buffed – deals 2x Area Damage. It gets a Death Damage bomb like Balloon to become a trap for the attackers.
Wall Breakers get faster in their hits 1.5 from 1.2 per second to become just like a Goblin Barrel that you must stop!
X-Bow’s HP got increased by 4% to be balanced and have a similar success like the Mortar.
Goblin Gang, Rascals, Bats, Barbarians now need 0.15 sec deploy time between Troops, a decision taken after Minion Horde got changed a few months ago and it allowed players to have a little more reaction time.
