Hello everyone, and welcome to NiceGamingAdvice; a blog predominantly about mobile gaming, advice for the games, and updates on how I, DamonDaBoss, am doing in these games! This is the best blog out there for gaming advice, on more than just one game, (Maybe I’m a little biased, be you all know it’s true) and here we like to have fun while we try to help you! Anyway, as you could’ve guessed by the title of this post, today will be about the Double Elixir Draft Challenge in Clash Royale. I was able to win 12 battles in it (but I almost always lose two around my 9th battle, so I always am cautious later on), so I want to give you a little advice and facts about this challenge to better prepare you for it (You never know when it might come back)!
For starters, this challenge will be going on from May 12 – May 15, so if you’re reading this during this time and you somehow didn’t know about it, go battle right after finishing this post! But, if you’re reading this post after these dates, don’t worry, it will most definitely be coming back in the future.
Alright, enough about the times, let’s move onto the actual content you came here for! Oh, and on a side note, I’m entering Clash Royale’s biggest tournament ever to see if I can win some big prizes! I doubt I’ll get too far, but The Crown Championship will be an amazing tournament to watch and participate in nonetheless. Here’s a little schedule about it just in case any of you wanted to learn more. This image, and more information on the special tournament, is/are in the above link! Lastly, this is the actual link I used to apply for the championship tournament. crownchampionship.clashroyale.com
Now here are my chest’s images. I received more gold that I ever could imagine from a free challenge (First try is free, second and so on are worth 100 gems. So, be smart with your spending; make sure it’s worth it! I personally wouldn’t do it again even after winning 12 times, because the reward from the chest itself is only half that of a normal grand challenge (on your second attempt after 12 wins, because all the gold would be taken), yet they’re the same price. I was really happy with the turnout of the challenge, not only because I got 12 wins, but because I went from around 4,000 gold to over 130,000 in just one day. Now off to the advice/tips and tricks that I have to offer.
For me these are the rules, the 3 chooses, I followed by:
- Choose cards that, even if you aren’t amazing at using them, you wouldn’t want to have used against you. Personally, I always chose cards such as: The Executioner, Barbarian Hut, Royal Giant, Heal Spell, Balloon, Hog Rider, Inferno Dragon, Sparky, and the Goblin Barrel and Goblin Gang, etc. because I knew they caused me trouble in previous battles, and I know they can be very useful in Challenges because the enemy doesn’t always have a good response to cards like these.
- Choose cards that you are good at playing with. If you’re in a challenge and you don’t know what all the cards you’ll get are, choose cards that you know you’re good with. For example, I really like the lava hound, and even if the rest of my deck doesn’t fully go well with the lava hound, I find a way around that in order to get the desired result by the end of the battle (a win).
- Choose cards that can respond to/counter the cards you gave to your opponent. One of the most annoying things I’ve done in draft challenges is when I accidentally chose a wrong card, without thinking, which can result in me having no response to a certain card I gave my opponent. An example of choosing the wrong card would be like if you gave the enemy a minion horde, because you wanted the other card in your deck, but then you later have a card like arrows, wizard, fire spirits, fireball, zap, or an executioner pop up, but you choose the bowler or lightning instead and you know you messed up. I mean, there’s always that chance that your opponent gave you one of those cards to counter their minion horde, unintentionally, but never rely on what they might give you; rely on what you’re taking from, and giving, them, so you can respond and form counter pushes and positive elixir trade offs.
When I battled in this challenge, I often didn’t form a massive push in the start, but I usually put a support card in the back, and then responded to what they placed using my double elixir advantage (that they had also) to counter their moves using the least amount of troops as possible.
Tell me your strategies you use in challenges, the rules you follow by, and more in the comment section of this post!
