Clash Royale is one of the most popular mobile games in world with millions of daily active players. However, the game’s popularity started dwindling when the folks at Blizzard decided to release a mobile version of Hearthstone. The two games are competing in the same bracket being card games and today we are going to find out which one is worth our time the most.
The reason why there are so many people playing card games is that they get to create complex strategizes and use them to defeat their foes. Clash Royale and Hearthstone feature a wide range of cards that synergize with each other and players can use them to counter-attack and dismantle their opponent’s moves.
While the two games share the same combat style, we have to give it to Hearthstone when it comes to complex strategies. The game has hundreds of cool cards that have special abilities such as Taunt (forces all enemies to attack the card) and Death Rattle (special ability when the card is destroyed).
Choosing a Class
One of the coolest things about Clash Royale is the fact that the game doesn’t limit players to a single role. Players can use their imagination to create strategies and roles that they enjoy. On the other hand, Hearthstone gives players the ability to choose one of the following roles: Shaman, Warlock, Hunter, Mage, Druid, Rogue, Paladin and Warrior.
Truth be told, both games are super fun to play. Hearthstone features a turn-based gameplay that relies on mana crystals, while Clash Role is focused on filling up Elixirs. However, Clash Royale gets the upper hand when it comes to gameplay because it is more fast-paced and also because “anything goes”.
From the looks of it, Hearthstone is the more polished game that features better lore and card designs. However, Clash Royale excels when it comes to gameplay and players are the ones who need to choose between fun combat or beautiful design and complex strategies.
