Clash Royale Summer Update 2021 Patch Notes


  • We have extended the Trophy Road to 8000 trophies and moved the start of the Leagues to 5000 trophies! We’ve also reviewed the early season reset for it to be dynamic.
  • For the Trophy Road: Two Arenas make their entrance in the Trophy Road: Rascals Hideout and Serenity Peak. Additional Arenas mean additional rewards on the road that you will be able to collect!
  • For the Leagues: The Leagues now start at 5000 trophies, and the more you climb, the less you’ll get reset at the end of a season. See more below.


  • For King Level 11 players and beyond, you can now find the Gold Crates in your Chest cycle. The chance of one of these Crates dropping increases with the King Level. There are 3 variations
  • With the introduction of two new Arenas on Trophy Road, the chests see their content scale-up for arena 14 and 15, as well as Victory Gold!


  • Now, Clan Wars are broken into Training Days and Battle Days. On Training Days (Monday to Wednesday), you can earn Gold by practicing with your War decks in River Battles.
  • On Battle Days, Battles will award Medals, which help move your Clan towards victory. Boats will now advance at the same time at the end of each battle day. Medals earned are totaled, transformed into Movement Points, and the Clan with the most Medals will move their boat the furthest.
  • If you don’t cross the finish line, it’s ok! At the end of the last Battle Day, War Chests will be awarded based on each Clan’s position on the River.
  • Boat Defenses that survive each Battle Day will now generate Movement Points for your Clan! Strategize with your Clan to have your strongest Clanmates protect the defenses that generate the most points. Leaders and co-leaders can remove the defenses!
