Clash Royale December 12th – Electrifying Update!

We are once again winding down to the latest update for Clash Royale which was originally scheduled to release today. On Saturday, December 9th, Clash Royale tweeted that today we would have a balance update on some specific cards. Along with that tweet, Clash Royale started today on twitter mentioning “ONE new Arena, TWO new cards and THREE new chests”. After 6 hours passed we learned that Clash Royale found a critical last minute bug that needed fixing before they can go live. With that being said; the update (including new balance) will arrive tomorrow morning, December 12th, instead of today.

I myself am very excited for this new update with the release of two new cards (Zappies and Hunter). It has been a while since we’ve seen more than one new card dropped on the same day. It will also be nice seeing a new arena (Electro Valley) which can be unlocked at 3400 trophies. We will also get three new chests (Lightning Chest, Fortune Chest and King’s Chest / Legendary King’s Chest) that can apparently be picked up from Quests and the Shop.

Here is a break down from the Clash Royale Reddit page on what to expect from this new update that will now be released tomorrow:


  • Electro Valley: Reach this new Arena at 3400 Trophies
  • Legendary Arena: Now Arena 12 with rewards (chests, Victory Gold, etc.) increased accordingly


  • Zappies: Spawns a pack of miniature Zap machines. Who controls them…? Only the Master Builder knows.
  • Hunter: He deals BIG damage up close – not so much at range. What he lacks in accuracy, he makes up for with his impressively bushy eyebrows.
  • Unlock them both today!


  • Lightning Chest: Replace card stacks of your choice with up to 5 “Strikes”
  • Fortune Chest: Get a glimpse of the future and see what your chest might contain…
  • King’s Chest / Legendary King’s Chest: Big chests with a focus on Epic and Legendary Cards
  • Pick up these new chests from Quests and the Shop


  • Coming in December: Gold Rush, Gem Rush, Special Challenges and Boosts!


  • The “Daily Gifts” Quest is now always active
  • Epic and Legendary Cards now appear in the Shop more often at 4000+ Trophies
  • Cards at max level are less likely to appear in the Shop and Fortune Chest
  • Support for iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note8


  • We’ve re-balanced several cards – find out what’s changing!
  • We hope you enjoy the update! Let us know what you think about it below!
