Opinion: Clash Royale is a must-play game

Clash Royale is a popular mobile game that gained a lot of popularity through quarantine. Clash Royale averages around 1.3m players at once, making it one of the most popular mobile games in the world. In 2019 alone, Clash Royale made 300m in revenue. This is before the game blew up during quarantine. 

Clash Royale is a strategy-based mobile game. Players pick 8 “cards” or in-game characters to fight for them against a real person. You win by taking your opponent’s crown towers while defending your own. 

There are different strategies with the cards you picked to win, but these change monthly. Every month when the season ends, (a season is one month) they update some cards making them better, worse, or even a neutral change. 

There is a card tier-list with common, rare, epic, and legendary cards. Legendary cards being a lot harder to attain than common. Some players before the season ends get 8000 trophies. 

This is a really hard accomplishment with only around a hundred people getting it a month. Some of these top players get a chance to compete in tournaments where they can win tens of thousands of dollars. There are people who make a living off this game whether it’s making videos on the game or competing in tournaments for money. 

Clash Royale has a “Clan” system where people join an in-game group where they fight with the group to get in-game rewards. These rewards consist of gold and even some legendary cards. Finally, Clash Royale has a friend system where you add your buddy and fight for bragging rights. 

All in all, Clash Royale is an extremely fun game and I highly recommend you check it out.
